NORTH MANCHESTER, Ind. (WOWO): New details have emerged in the case regarding the former Manchester University student accused of killing her newborn son.

On March 8, 22-year-old Mikayla Munn of Elkhart called 911. She told police she gave birth in her bathtub and there was “blood everywhere.”

Manchester University officers responded and found the newborn boy unresponsive. Munn allegedly said she didn’t know she was pregnant.

Court documents indicate medical professionals said the child was “a full-term healthy baby and that the child was born alive and took a breath. An autopsy ruled the baby’s death due to drowning” and the manner of death as homicide.

During the investigation, several text messages were discovered that showed Munn knew of her pregnancy months before her child was born… and that she had searched the Internet for topics related to pregnancy, including “home abortions” and “water births.”
