The parents of one of the most disturbing child murders we have ever seen have just been charged.
Shaun Cody Oxenreider and Samantha Marie Trump allegedly murdered their 6-month-old child, Harper, and buried her in a bag of cat litter. They’ve now been charged with murder.
House of Horrors
The young couple lived in a home in West Lawn, PA, where a probable cause affidavit was filed by Children and Youth Services that prompted an investigation into the death of Harper Trump.
The parents claimed the child had been cremated, but the parents could provide no death certificate or proof of cremation to the caseworker.
The caseworker apparently drove by the house one day and saw one of the parent’s vehicles parked there, so she called the police to check out the house.
As officers were looking around, Samantha reportedly had a seizure and was taken to the hospital.
Police eventually found a bag of cat litter under the stairs.
One officer noticed another bag inside the bag of litter and opened it up.
Inside the bag was the dead body of the child.
At that time, charges were filed against the parents for unlawfully concealing the death of a child.
As if that was not bad enough, the autopsy revealed even more horrors about the child’s life and death.
The report revealed the child died from “blunt force trauma to the head and homicidal violence.”
The medical examiner also stated the child appeared to have been the victim of sustained abuse.
At the time of the arrest, the couples 21-month-old child was placed in protective custody.
Samantha was also pregnant with their third child.
Both parents remain in jail and are being held on $250,000 bail each.
