What a heinous tragedy.
Late last week, new mom Shanna Riddle Vandewege and her 3-month-old son Diederik were found murdered in their Texas home. Both victims were reported to have had their throats slit.
According to multiple reports, Shanna's husband Craig Vandewege found the pair dead upon returning home from work around 9:30 p.m. on December 15. At this time, Craig has been cooperating with investigators and has not been named as a suspect.
To make this incident even more upsetting, sources reveal Mrs. Vandewege had suffered multiple miscarriages before finally conceiving her son. The baby was a miracle child for the slain mom.
