Baby Be Mine

The Shocking True Story of a Woman Who Murdered a Pregnant Mother to Steal Her Child
When Lisa Montgomery presented her husband Kevin with their new-born baby girl, he was ecstatic. Naming the child Abigail, the couple brought her to their local pastor. Miles away, police were investigating the brutal murder of a pregnant woman…

Twenty-three year old Bobbie Jo Stinnett was found by her mother, lying in a pool of blood, looking as if her stomach “had exploded.” Investigators soon determined: Someone had strangled Bobbie Jo to death–and then cut her fetus from her womb…

In late 2004, two women met in a dog-breeding internet chat room. When Elizabeth Montgomery came face to face with eight-months-pregnant Bobbie Jo Stinnett, prosecutors claim she already had a plan. Investigators knew that Bobbie Jo had fought desperately for her life–and that her fetus, alive or dead, was gone. Investigators scrambled after a killer. An “Amber Alert” went out for an hours-old infant. And this horrifying case was about to shock neighbors and a nation: of a woman accused of murdering for a baby…


Background information in this book includes other casearean abduction cases; a history of crime in Northwest Missouri in general and Skidmore in particular with a glimpse at the infamous Ken McElroy; and a look at the recent Stinnett family victims like Branson Perry whose disappearance and suspected murder remains an unsolved case.
