The home of Lisa Montgomery, who killed a pregnant women and cut out her baby. On Dec. 16, 2004, expectant mother Bobbie Jo Stinnett, 23, scheduled a meeting with a prospective owner of one her show-quality Rat Terrier puppies. That possible business transaction ended in the death of eight-month-pregnant Mrs. Stinnett and the kidnapping of her unborn daughter. “Nodaway County 911, what is your emergency?” a Nodaway County dispatcher said on the afternoon of Dec. 16, 2004. Screams from the mother of Bobbie Jo Stinnett, Becky Harper, echoed through the small Skidmore home after finding her daughter’s body in the back bedroom. The room was used to hold puppy kennels for the show Rat Terriers raised by Mrs. Stinnett, but became filled with the uncontrollable sobs of Ms. Harper. “She is laying on the floor with blood everywhere,” Ms. Harper said as the dispatcher asked her what happened. “She was pregnant. ... It’s like her guts have exploded or something.” A tip led to a woman named Lisa Montgomery, a 36-year-old woman who claimed to be pregnant. Partnered with former Lt. Don Fritz with the Cameron Police Department, Mr. Strong and Mr. Fritz sped down to Ms. Montgomery’s home in Melvern, Kansas, in hopes of finding the baby alive. At the Montgomery home, Mr. Fritz and Mr. Strong made their way into the home under the assumption of seeking potential witnesses. The pair found Ms. Montgomery, sitting on the couch, baby in her arms and watching TV with the nationwide Amber Alert flashing on screen. “You could tell that the shape of the baby’s head looked like it was a Cesarean (birth),” Mr. Strong said. “The color was good, but probably the thing that bothered me the most was the fact that the baby didn’t cry.”
