Heidi Broussard's suspected kidnapper asked ex not to be 'mad'

The woman suspected of being involved in the murder of her friend Heidi Broussard in an elaborate plot to steal her newborn allegedly told her ex-boyfriend not to be mad when she returned home with a baby after faking her pregnancy.  

Broussard was found strangled to death in the trunk of a car outside a home in Houston, Texas on December 20 after she disappeared with her newborn baby Margot Carey a week earlier. 

The baby was found unharmed inside the home where Broussard's close friend Magen Fieramusca, also known as Maygen Humphrey, was living at the time with her ex-boyfriend.

Fieramusca has since been charged with kidnapping and evidence tampering in relation to her friend's death after police say she faked being pregnant in an elaborate plot to steal Broussard's baby. 

No one has been charged yet with Broussard's killing and authorities say they are still investigating.

Court documents, obtained by KVUE, released on Monday have provided somewhat of a timeline in relation to Broussard's death and indicate why police have come to suspect her friend Fieramusca of being involved.

Authorities believe that Fieramusca faked being pregnant for months in an elaborate plot to kidnap her friend's baby in a bid to pass her off as her own, according to the affidavit.

Police said Fieramusca displayed suspicious behavior soon after her friend gave birth to Margot in an Austin hospital.

Fieramusca drove from Houston to visit Fieramusca a day after the baby was born, the affidavit said.

The baby's grandfather told police that he recalled Fieramusca asked if she could hold the baby first instead of him.

A nurse also told investigators that she overheard Fieramusca speaking to Broussard at the hospital about being 37 weeks pregnant.

The affidavit said that Fieramusca and Broussard were excited about being pregnant at the same time and had wondered if they would go into labor around the same time.
