The body has now been sent to the Ramsey County Medical Examiner's Office in St. Paul, Minn., Todd said, where it awaits an autopsy.

Crews, 38, and the 32-year-old Hoehn admitted the baby is Greywind's child, but authorities say they are doing DNA testing to be sure.

Crews and Hoehn are charged with conspiracy to commit murder and other counts. A cause of death hasn't been released yet, and a full report isn't expected for weeks, officials said.

On Sunday evening, LaFontaine-Greywind was found by a group of kayakers on the Red River.

According to Crews, Savanna left the apartment that afternoon, but returned at 3:30AM Monday with the baby girl. She was last seen after a woman living in the same apartment building knocked on her family's door and requested that LaFontaine-Greywind try on a dress that she was sewing.

"Recreational kayakers on the Red River found what appeared to be a body sized object heavily wrapped in plastic and duct tape, stuck against a tree, sticking out in the middle of the river".

Todd said in a press conference Monday that both suspects will likely be charged with conspiracy to commit murder, conspiracy to commit kidnapping and false information.

But what's different about this case is that the two people arrested in connection to Greywind's disappearance are a man and a woman. Police believe the newborn girl belonged to LaFontaine-Greywind.

While the details of the crime are still under investigation, it appears to be a case of what experts term "fetal abduction", when a baby is stolen from the womb of a pregnant mother.

Crews was arrested with LaFontaine-Greywind's baby August 24 and the mother's body was found in the Red River north of Moorhead three days later. "She wouldn't just leave that lady's apartment and go somewhere", she told the paper.

According to the New York Daily News, she was found wrapped in a plastic bag, stuck on log in the river.

She was taken to a hospital and is now in the custody of Cass County Social Services, authorities said.

On Friday, Chief Todd said police had been "investigating several different theories, including Savanna being held against her will and/or her unborn child being induced or removed and possibly being alive".

Savannah's mum Norberta told WDAY-TV that her daughter was "very excited" about the child she was expecting with boyfriend Ashton Matheny and was due to give birth in late September.
