    This is so horrible! Three babies treated as if they were disposable. Inconceivable!

    So she was caught when she left the 1st one on the side of the road tofreeze to death. So the next two she just put into bags in her car.

    What a piece of work. Hope she enjoyed her vacation she will do time for this for sure. Probably not enough time though...

    Why did it take almost 5 years for her to be arrested for Crystal's death?

    She refused to give a DNA sample.

    What I'd like to know is ... how did she hide not just one, but three pregnancies? She was living with her boyfriend at the time of Crystal's death. Surely he knew she was pg. Seems like her parents might have known too. Did any of her family or friends know she was pg the other two times? Is she going down alone for this, or is she taking others with her? It will be interesting to see how this turns out.

    She is a real slob, imo. That's the nicest thing I can think of to say about her.

    And she's smiling in that mug shot.

    TIMELINES
    Follow Baby Crystal's case
    Follow the trunk discovery news

    These are interesting timelines. This female has a living son, whose father is petitioning for custody. Can't say as I blame him.

    She's a fertile b###h, isn't she?

    IL - Katie Stockton, Dead Children's Skeletons Found in Car

    http://abcnews.go.com/Video/playerIndex?id=8330861

    How awful. The skeletal remains have been in a car impound lot for a year. It sounds like the mother may already be jailed for murdering her newborn. The impound lot had contacted the owner who promised to come for the car. Never did.

    Our poor children.

    They are just thrown away like trash. In life and in death.

    My heart breaks for each of them that met that boogeyman/woman who disguised themselves to look like mom or dad.. who was suppose to care about them.

    Woman accused of being "Baby Crystal's" mom had skeletal remains in her car

    ROCKFORD (WREX) - The Baby Crystal investigation leads police to two infant skeleton's in the trunk of a car. Prosecutors say the car belongs to 28-year-old Katie Stockton, the woman they believe is Baby Crystal's mother. Just last week Stockton was charged with murdering the newborn in December 2004.

    Investigators went looking for any cars that had a connection to Stockton. Late yesterday they found her 1993 navy blue Saturn at an impound lot in South Beloit.

    "You never know where cases are going to take you," said Winnebago County Sheriff Dick Meyers.

    WINNEBAGO COUNTY (WREX) - The woman charged in the death of a baby left along a roadway nearly five years ago goes before a judge.

    Katie L. Stockton, 28, appeared via video teleconference Friday to hear the charges against her. She faces two counts of First Degree Murder. If found guilty, she would face 20 to 60 years in prison under Illinois law.

    Stockton was also assigned a public defender by the judge, and her bail was set at $1 million. The Winnebago County State's Attorney's office plans to seek a grand jury indictment against her.

    So, basically, if they had arrested her four years ago, these kids might not be in that trunk...?

    Assuming these children belong to the car's owner, baby Crystal's mother. What mother (or any person) could live with knowledge that two children were in the trunk of her car? I've never been a person who favored the death penalty; now, however, I see two (three) reasons for it.

    Mom looks like 'girl next door'. I don't understand how a mother could do this. So many would have loved to adopt those babies.

    Police help arrest Illinois fugitive accused of killing baby
    Posted on Thu, Aug. 06, 2009 11:27 PM
    <snipped>
    Kansas City police helped arrest a fugitive accused of killing her baby by leaving it in a trash bag to freeze along a rural Illinois road in December 2004.

    The crime shocked authorities and residents in Rockford, Ill., who named the newborn Baby Crystal and organized her funeral. An autopsy showed she died from exposure.

    A police squad recently reopened the case and focused on Katie L. Stockton, 28, who fled her home Sunday night.

    Winnebago County, Ill., authorities filed charges Monday and got a tip Tuesday night that Stockton might be in Merriam, where a friend from the Rockford area had moved several years ago.

    Illinois investigators worked with Kansas City’s FBI fugitive task force to track Stockton to an extended-stay hotel off Interstate 35. Stockton checked in under a fake name and paid cash, authorities said.

    When police knocked on her door Wednesday, Stockton appeared surprised to see law enforcement officers, said Kansas City Detective John Cooley, a task force member.

    Authorities booked Stockton into the Wyandotte County jail, where Winnebago County investigators interviewed her. On Thursday, Stockton waived extradition, and investigators drove her back to Illinois.

    Police said DNA linked Stockton to the infant, who was found in 9-degree weather in a ditch in the yard of Stockton’s parents.

    Investigators found the naked baby, who had curly black hair and blue eyes, in a white trash bag Dec. 17, 2004, with bloody clothes that appeared to belong to the mother.

    An autopsy determined the baby probably had died a week to 10 days earlier.

    Authorities said they questioned Stockton several times.

    Over the years, authorities ran out of leads. In recent months, authorities struggled to get a DNA sample from Stockton to test against the baby’s. Stockton resisted, but investigators eventually got the sample, police said.

    Suspect in "Baby Crystal" case returns to Winnebago County

    The woman police say is Baby Crystal's mom is on her way back to Winnebago County, to face murder charges in the newborn's death.

    You may remember Baby Crystal. She was found dumped on the side of a rural Winnebago County road in December 2004.

    Now, after more than four-and-a-half years later and countless interviews, Winnebago County Sheriff's Police arrest a Rockton woman they say is the mother.

    Katie L. Stockton, 28, was arrested Wednesday in Kansas City, Kansas. According to Stockton's Facebook page, she was on vacation in Kansas City.

    Stockton appeared in court there and waived extradition. Winnebago County detectives were driving her back to the jail here.

    "I think it's terrible that it happened in the first place," Winnebago County Sheriff Dick Meyers, said. "It's extremely rewarding that we can bring it to a conclusion."

    If Stockton did dump her baby in a garbage bag, she didn't go very far to do it. This is the Stockton family home on Will Road, just a few feet from the scene of the crime. Meyers says Stockton and her family were extensively interviewed at the time but never considered suspects.

    "We talked to them, but when you're talking then you don't talk to them as suspects because you have no reason to suspect," he said.

    13 News went to the Stockton home, and though the door was open, nobody responded to our calls. But according to Stockton's Facebook page she worked at the Rockton Inn. The owner there wouldn't comment except to say she was in a state of shock.

    One neighbor tells us she's surprised the arrest took so long. "With all the technology, I wonder why they coudn't have found out sooner," Janice Mockus said.

    As for the baby's father, neither Meyers nor Winnebago County State's Attorney Joe Bruscato would give any information about him - including whether they know who he is.

    Meyers and others stressed that if you have an infant you can't take care of, you can drop it off at any safe haven spot with no questions asked.
