I have heard that to prevent mothers killing their unwanted babies, they can legally leave babies at hospitals anonymously...I am sure ,though she was cruel, but she didn't need to kill her baby and put herself in such a dilemma...there were other legal ways...even if she was embarrassed if relatives knew she left her unwanted baby at a hospital, it was better than now and current embarrassment

This lady needs to be in prison. Post partum or not, who in their right mind not only murders their child but then goes to the extent to hide the body under a rock at Saylorville.
If the judge feels sorry for her, maybe he should afford the bill for a psychologist for her.

It's amazing that in some parts of the country, if a woman commits a crime, they destroy her life.
But when an insurance company (guide one) cold-bloodedly destroys peoples' lives, being involved in the commission of hundreds of crimes, and all for MONEY, then those good ol' BOYS are just fine with that.
The DA should have been prosecuted as an accessory after the fact for refusing to even investigate the company's executives.
It looks like the company knew what they were doing when they settled in Iowa, where the simple-minded are ok with Godless, and ongoing, evil against children.
