Illinois Department of Children and Family Services officials and Oak Lawn police say Christ Medical Center did not contact them about Clarisa Figueroa when she came to the hospital with a newborn and had no signs of having just giving birth. The woman is one of two defendants accused of murdering Marlen Ochoa-Lopez and removing her infant from her womb. Paramedics brought Figueroa to the hospital April 23rd, but police didn’t link her to Ochoa-Lopez’s killing. The baby boy remains in grave condition.
