MUSKINGUM COUNTY, OHIO: In a shocking case, a college student gave birth in secret before hiding the baby in a cardboard pasta box and dumping her in a bin.
26-year-old Emile Weaver had hidden her 2015 pregnancy from her friends and professors at university. She had also been in denial that the baby would actually be born. However, she went on to give birth in secret at the Muskingum University’s New Concord in Ohio before dumping the baby girl in a bin near her sorority house.
She is currently serving a lifetime prison sentence and had texted her boyfriend saying "no more baby" and that she had "taken care of it". The baby was later named Addison by authorities and was placed inside a cardboard mac n cheese box and an empty bag of Doritos before being dumped.
Weaver shared that she feels like a "monster" but still denies killing the child in 2015. While speaking to Elle magazine, she shared that she had lied to her friends about the pregnancy and that led to her genuinely believing that she was not pregnant. "Them not really thinking I was pregnant…manifested into a bigger [belief]: "I’m really not pregnant," she shared.
However, rumors that she was expecting a baby started to circulate in the sorority after she started to gain weight. On the day she gave birth, her friends recall her looking sick and skinnier before one pal made the sickening discovery. Her friend Elise noticed an unusual tied bag leaking liquid next to the bin outside.
After opening it, she saw a tiny baby's foot and recalled yelling out, "It's a whole f*****g baby." At the moment the friend found the baby, Weaver had texted her sorority group saying, "Attention: Housemates, whoever made the mess in the study bathroom needs to clean it up ASAP."
During her trial, Weaver described how she rushed into a toilet one day thinking she needed to pee. However, she gave birth instead and claimed that the baby was stillborn. Prosecutors have shared that the baby died as a result of being stuffed in a box and dumped.
