Three people have been charged in the gruesome murder of a pregnant Chicago woman whose baby was cut from her womb.

Marlen Ochoa-Uriostegui, 19, went missing after she responded to an offer on Facebook for free baby clothes. Police say Ochoa-Uriostegui was strangled and her unborn baby was forcibly removed from her womb via a crude incision.

Clarisa Figueroa, 46, and her daughter Desiree Figueroa, 24, are charged with murder. Desiree confessed to helping her mother strangle Ochoa-Uriostegui with a coaxial cable, CBS Chicago reports.

Clarisa Figueroa's boyfriend, Piotr Bobak, 40, was charged with concealing a crime.

Police say Ochoa-Uriostegui and the Figueroas knew each other from previous exchanges of clothes. Ochoa-Uriostegui's family said she met the women through a Facebook group called "Help a Sister Out."

The teenager's body was found early Wednesday behind a house. She was last seen leaving her high school on April 23, and getting into a black Honda Civic, according to her family. The car was later found abandoned.

On April 23, paramedics responded to a 911 call about a newborn baby having difficulty breathing at a home on the Southwest Side of Chicago.

A dispatcher reported that the 46-year-old woman called to say she had given birth 10 minutes earlier and her baby was pale and blue and not breathing, according to WLS-TV.

The newborn baby is in critical condition in a neonatal intensive care unit. He is not expected to survive.

Ochoa-Uriostegui's family had hopes that another baby boy found on top of a garbage can lid in an alley was Ochoa-Uriostegui's baby, and that she was being held somewhere against her will, according to The Chicago Sun-Times.

The baby boy was found shortly after 4 p.m. on Tuesday in the Hermosa neighborhood.

Ochoa-Uriostegui's mother, Raquel Uriostegui, believed the foundling was her grandson, and that he was the key to finding her missing daughter.

But the foundling was not related to Ochoa-Uriostegui. A source on Wednesday confirmed the baby boy is doing well, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Police are searching for his parents.

Ochoa-Uriostegui leaves behind a three-year-old son and her grieving husband, Yiovanni Lopez, 20.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    I'm so serious. This is why I stay to myself so much now. TOO MANY people have shown me why I shouldn't trust them AT ALL, in my lifetime.

    Her trust for people who she thought she knew and could trust, got her killed. Smh.

    I've learned some of the most evil, manipulative people hide behind a so called "good deed". They are also some of the same ones, who seem to be the most charismatic. Just my experience and observation.

  • Ayeola George

    like how in God's good earth could you raise a child whose mother you murdered????? Look at their faces ... these people are sick

  • ?Starring Ladii Jaye?

    I can't get too comfortable. I learned about charisma at a early age when I first read about Jim Jones. Everybody DO NOT have your best interest at heart. There are people that you can trust, but you better have your discernment up to par.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    This is so sad. Those sick ugly bastards kill that poor woman. I hope the worst happens to them.

  • DeepThinker

    The world we are in with so many sick wicked psychopaths! I’m glad they were not bright enough to get away with this. May mom Rest In Peace hoping for a miracle for baby and family. ?

  • Guest©

    This happened a fewvyrs ago as well. A pregnant woman was lured with the offer or free baby clothes. I believe her baby survived. It's come yo a point where you can't even share pregnancy news with people. I pray the baby survives.

  • Meme

    What an evil wicked world we live in. RIP to the young lady. So a baby was dumped because it was unwanted and another was stolen and his mother murdered because it was desperately wanted by its mother and coveted by that evil monster....what an evil world we live in or rather I should say there are so many evil people in our beautiful world it is frightening

  • guest

    Smdh...AWFUL! So sad. The crazy fools that do these type of evil and brutal murders always think they will get away and usually dont, which makes it so much sadder and senseless.

    I'm not going to a stranger's house alone! Where was her hubby?

    I'm not going on Facebook period.

    She's Mexican.

  • Coy little wink

    Plus she's a teenager

  • Li-Wright

    This is the big story in Chicago. I guess nobody got shot over the last few days because we haven't heard of any car jackings or murders since this broke.
    Anywho, the latest is that there are 2 more women who are pregnant and missing. One if a postal worker and there's a $100,000 reward. She was 5 months pregnant. And there's another woman. There must be a baby snatching ring out there, in Chicago or the country. This is just too coincidental.
    Anywho, social media is the devil in disguise.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    How’d they think this would work out?

    Did they honestly think they could just steal a whole baby, then pretend like they didn’t?

    Dumb muthafuggas ???

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Discernment on point and that's why my circle is small. I was still very young when people showed their true colors and I'm forever grateful for it. It still baffles me why people think because I've shared a laugh or two with them, that I now trust them. Lol

    Plus, I know when you're young, like this young mom is, snakes can slither under your radar. In her case, she found out too late the kind of people she was dealing with. My heart breaks for her family and her newborn.

  • RespectSelf

    This is terrible smh. My heart goes out to her family.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Right. At some point they would’ve been figured out anyway. DNA ?! Just dumb!

  • ?Starring Ladii Jaye?

    You got a circle...I got a dot. I also learned at a young age of how quickly someone can turn on you. I should be scarred for life, but I have seen the greater good in humanity which doesn't get acknowledged much. Discernment is an important gift to have. To think that EVERYONE has your best interest at heart makes one gullible...but to think that NO ONE does is foolish.

    Sickos. There is a special place in hell.

  • AveIvy

    Those two slobs should get a severe beat down within an inch of their pathetic lives. Poor mother. May her soul rip.

  • Wile E. Coli

    How does scum like this even get in to this country?

  • Karen Brady

    If they watch Lifetime movies they knew they could get away with it for a few days but at least one intelligent person would get suspicious and start asking questions.

  • Karen Brady

    ALONE??? There's people Iknown forever and I ani't going to their house.. lol. For real.

    And I agree about FB

  • Parent

    Damn. How the heck do you find it in you to cut open a womans womb and remove a fetus? Sick, deranged, tormented people these are.

  • Coy little wink

    Lololo... truth!!!

  • Lovely1

    What the utter fck is wrong with them?

  • Ni Ni

    Young people are so naive. If you're meeting folks online nowadays, take someone with you or meet in the public where you can call for help if needed.

    Prison s too easy for criminals like these. We need middle eastern punishments or outsource these types over there since our prisons are so humane.

    Yup! They sneaking in here by the thousands everyday. Soon enough they will have stole the entire United States

  • GrambosTheHealer

    What's the motivation to do something so horrific? Evil is reigning supreme in this horrid world. Prayers for all sick.

  • Nik

    The biggest sociopath I ever encountered was very well-liked and charismatic. Only a few of us knew he was really a monster.

  • A J

    Those babies are being sold to Illegals to keep from being deported. Dummies will be caught when the DNA doesn't match.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    I have seen many times where people fake pregnancies to keep a man, then when the baby comes due they do drastic things such as this.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    I can totally believe it. I've experienced "that kind" more than once and from both genders.

  • A J

    Two words....CULTURAL DIVERSITY!!!!!!

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    I agree! Yeah, I trust some but not all and that trust is completely based on their behavior and my inner spiritual voice (discernment).

    ???I am crying laughing at "you got a circle...I got a dot." Yes, yes, yes...I feel you!

  • TransMichelle

    Go to the UK dailymail They have a big story about this plus they have stories about other women who have been hit by "womb raiders." . They also have a lot of the conversation that went on with the killer and the pregnant girl via Facebook before the killing took place. A bit off topic but... they just arrested an illegal Kenyan who was a serial killer. He killed 11 elderly women here in the US. Just think, thousands of these types are coming across the border everyday or week (yes Africans are also at the Mexican border along with Middle Easterners, etc) and the Demoncrats want to "let them ALL in."

  • ?Starring Ladii Jaye?


  • ShWa

    Yes they should get an eye for an eye

  • Rahab

    She had met the lady on one previous occasion without being harmed. The lady and her daughter were just evil. Then looking for sympathy and money. They both kept mentioning the lady's adult son that died 2 years ago and then the stolen baby on social media with links to the Go Fund Me.

  • Rahab

    The baby that waa found on top of the garbage can belonged to another teen in the area. The paternal grandmother was arrestes for lying about the situation. The teen had the baby at home and the father's mother took it to fire station with that story.

  • Rahab

    Women and kids are at risk. You know the other fools don't rest, just didn't make the news. Listen to the police scanners.

  • Rahab

    All She needs is a big black mole with long curly hair. Living in her 70 and 60 year old parents basement. Body still at the residence since April 23rd. Paramedics never went in and she couldn't have been examined by a doctor to keep up the lie in the hospital afterwards.

  • Rahab

    And caused grave injuries to the infant.

  • SandraRose

    Hispanics and Caribbean people know their true purpose in life is to breed and raise their children. Some are age 35 with 5 or 6 kids. They are young enough to enjoy their grandchildren.

  • Yup, I said it

    They were dumb to expect 911 to not to investigate. When there is a newborn in distress they will ALWAYS ask to evaluate the delivering mother because the mother would typically need medical assistance also.

  • Li-Wright

    Here's the latest. It appears the neighbors and maybe the mom were undocumented and they think that's what took so long to solve the murder. However, the mom was killed on the day she was missing.

    Of Slain Pregnant Woman Pray For Miracle For Baby, Ask If Undocumented Status Slowed Investigation

    The family of Marlen Ochoa-Uriostegui, 19, said some neighbors of the crime scene may have stayed silent because of their immigration status.

  • Li-Wright

    I lean Democrat and I don't want to let them in. I think we need to have a comprehensive immigration program. Comprehensive. For example, Trump always hires Europeans to work his properties during the summer months. How do we know they went back home after their work visa ran out?
    I think ICE is doing a good job rounding up as many people as possible, but once they get here -- whether it's over the Canadian border or Mexican border - it's hard to find them.

  • Li-Wright

    That's a different story. That happened about a week ago. The teen and her boyfriend and mom were all charged. That baby is well and probably won't be returned to the family.

  • CCW47

    I do not understand why the black community support illegals coming over especially the Hispanic, they are the ones who gentrify the black neighborhoods especially in Los Angeles!!!!!!! They hate Americans and the hate blacks. What people do not understand is they have a totally different views. I got cussed out on IG because my son now has to too get more vaccines for junior high school now or he cannot got to school and why is this happening because of the illegals coming through the border sick with sick babies and kids.

  • Rahab

    Right, they could have had that one and not be in lockup.

  • Jussjess25

    What a horrible story.. so dam sad rip to the young life stolen ??

  • Guess Who

    I can't believe this type of shit STILL happens????????
    I wonder if anyone has ever gotten away with this.

  • Tbone

    This is really Savage

  • Chocolate Bliss

    Too late! That already happened hundreds of years ago with the cacs coming over here, and killing the natives.

  • Ni Ni


  • Tbone

    Yup !

  • Renee Bee

    Rest in Heaven dear lady.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Yep. Native Americans said the same thing about wyte folk.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    How did they think they could cut it out without injuring the baby? What idiots! Not one class in med school, but they thought they were surgeons. So st00pid to think they could get away with it.

  • NewNew

    The whole thing was stupid and evil. Read this morning that the 46 year old had been planning this for months. Her 20 year old son died recently and she wanted a baby boy to raise as her own but her tubes were tied and she's old and ugly so it wasn't gonna happen. She claimed to be pregnant back in October, started posting fake ultrasounds online, tried to lure women due in May to her home and asked her 24 year old daughter in April to help her kill a pregnant woman. And the daughter, like a phucking simpleton, agreed. They dumped the body in a trash can in their own backyard. I mean, talk about stupid. They killed those people for nothing. The woman is dead, the baby is brain dead. Under the jail is too good for them

  • Allihave2say

    These dumb asses took a life and didn't even get away with it for 30 days.
    Just like the fools who killed XXXtentacion.
    This crimes are worth short time you gain.

  • Sandyb1117

    That is a problem. But along with the immigration problem, we still have to figure out why our own American citizens are the main ones shooting up churches and schools.

  • Wile E. Coli

    Given the number of homicides on during any week in Urban areas it is not my main concern. VERY small number compared to the thousands killed each year. It is a nightmare.. but not our worst. Unless you believe that lives are not equal and black lives matter less than school kids.
