What the hell? 

From CNN:



Pregnant woman found dead, fetus gone

HOLDENVILLE, Oklahoma (AP) -- A missing pregnant woman was found dead in a field with her abdomen cut open and the fetus removed, and a 37-year-old woman was in custody after bringing a dead fetus to a hospital.

A hunter found the body of Carolyn Simpson, 21, of Okemah in a field near Lamar, about 100 miles southeast of Oklahoma City, on Friday. She had been shot in the head, said Tommy Graham, an Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation regional inspector.

Simpson was six months pregnant when she was last seen December 22 at a tribal casino in Okemah where she worked. One day after Simpson's disappearance, Effie Goodson brought a dead fetus that had reached six months' gestation to a hospital about 30 miles from Okemah, saying she was the mother, authorities said.

Medical personnel determined Goodson couldn't have given birth to the fetus, and the 37-year-old was taken into custody as a material witness in connection with Simpson's disappearance. Graham said he expected she would be charged this week.

Officials hadn't determined whether the fetus brought to the hospital was Simpson's, Graham said.



The only semi-plausible explanation I can come up with is this: Goodson thought Simpson was going to abort the fetus and killed her to try and save the baby.
