    IA - Jackie Burkle charged in deaths of newborn twins, Huxley, Jan 2012

    The state Department of Public Safety said Sunday that Huxley Police went to the woman's apartment in Huxley Saturday because someone was concerned about her welfare.

    When police reached the apartment, they discovered that the woman had given birth to twins, and the babies did not survive.

    Officials with the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation say when officers arrived they learned the 22-year-old woman had given birth to twin girls at home.

    Link has been updated. Autopsy results aren't being released pending more tests. Not a good sign.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    I have one year old twin grandsons-I cannot imagine. I delivered twins 22 years ago, the girl survived, the boy did not. My heart is still broken today.. (The twin girl is the one that has the twin boys today-healed my heart so much!). How can someone deliberately do this?

    Incredibly the car was parked in front of her home, across the street from the police department in the town of about 2,800 people, about 20 miles north of Des Moines.

    I can't get over this. They were in her car, in her trunk...

    ACROSS the STREET from the POLICE STATION?!

    How lazy do you have to be to not walk over to the police station to hand the babies over?
    Certainly the police station has to count as a safe haven location?
    People knew she was pregnant... she wasn't hiding it successfully... across the street... seriously?

    I am a local to this story but not verified yet (not sure how to do that). I work for the same company that this girl worked for and we share the same supervisor but we work at different stores, about 30 miles apart.

    It's my understanding that she told her co-workers and family that she was not pregnant, even when asked. She had worked for the company for awhile, then she left the state for awhile, when she came back and started working for the company again, she was obviously pregnant but told her co-workers she was not.

    She does not have a criminal record. Her only record was when she got in a car accident and did not have insurance.

    Since I am not verified yet, I can't go into any more details and I am not sure just how much I can say about this.
