7 dead babies were found in a Pleasant Grove, Utah home on Saturday. A woman has been arrested and charged with 6 counts of murder when the bodies of 7 infants were crammed into individual cardboard boxes, ABC News reported April 13

Megan Huntsman, 39, was arrested Saturday following the grisly discovery in a house she moved out of in 2011. Police responded to a family member's call who is now living at the house. Police said the first baby found appeared to be "full term."

When the family member was cleaning out the garage, a box that looked suspicious was present. It was opened up and an infant was inside it, Capt. Michael Roberts of the Pleasant Grove Police Department said. When authorities got a search warrant, they found the bodies of 6 other babies.

After further investigation, the 7 dead babies found in the home were believed to have been born between 1996 and 2006. It's believed that Huntsman then murdered them.

Salt Lake City Tribune detailed in its April 13 report that Huntsman's ex-husband is the father of the babies found dead, but he hasn't been charged anything. DNA results are pending in the investigation. The ex-husband's parents own the home and his three daughters still live there.

It would be a horrible discovery if there 7 dead babies found in a home. It's hard to fathom what on earth would cause a mother to kill her own children.
