Authorities say there's no evidence yet that kidnapping suspect had been pregnant
Union, Mo. – Authorities Wednesday cast doubt on claims that the woman accused of slashing a young mother's throat and kidnapping her newborn had lost her own baby.
Franklin County Sheriff Gary Toelke says investigators are trying to determine whether Shannon Torrez was pregnant and lost a full-term baby before the kidnapping.
Torrez was charged Wednesday with kidnapping, assault and armed criminal action.
Torrez told investigators she delivered a stillborn baby Friday before attacking Stephenie Ochsenbine.
Toelke said investigators are searching for a dead infant to support her story but have not found anything.
