ANCHORAGE, AK — A mother has been charged with murder after two of her baby daughters die two years apart.

Last November, 23-year-old Stephany LaFountain called emergency services to report her 13-month-old daughter was not breathing.

The girl was taken to the hospital where she would die four days later. It would later be determined that the girl had died from lack of oxygen to the brain.

Looking into LaFountain’s past, investigators learned that she had lost another daughter in a similar fashion two years prior.

In 2015, while in a relationship with a different man, LaFountain had a 4-month-daughter that died. Police did not believe the death was the result of foul play at that time.

But now? After LaFountain had lost two baby girls in the same way within two years?

“The autopsy results and medical records for both children showed that they were entirely healthy, with no genetic abnormalities, no diseases, and no injuries,” police stated in a news release.

Investigators started to focus their attention on LaFountain and decided to check out her Internet activity. They discovered LaFountain had a very interesting search history. Some of the terms she searched for included:

“Best ways to suffocate.”

“Ways to kill human with no proof.”

“16 steps to kill someone and not get caught.”

“How to: commit the perfect murder.”

Granted, I’d hate for anyone to be convicted of a crime on their search history alone as I would have been locked up years ago. You can only run a crime site for so long before your search inquiries are chock full of red flags.

But LaFountain had two dead babies to go along with her search terms and investigators believed it was enough to charge Lafountain with the murder of both of her babies.

She was arrested on Friday and is currently being held on $2 million bail at Fairbanks Correctional Center.

Police have not speculated on a motive, but I think LaFountain just wanted to be a single woman with no kid to increase her chances of snagging another man.
