Bittersweet news: Broussard found dead, baby reunited with family [video]

In time for Christmas, family members in Texas and Louisiana have closure knowing the body of their daughter and mother of a newborn, Heidi Broussard, was found, and the baby was safe and alive.

“A suspect arrested in the case was a “close friend” of Heidi’s who pretended to be pregnant while plotting to take her baby,” local news reported.

In what many are describing as a bizarre Lifetime movie, Broussard was allegedly kidnapped by her friend who lived in northwest Houston, in the Jersey Village area.

Magen Fieramusca, 33, was arrested and charged with two counts of kidnapping and one count of tampering with a corpse in connection with the case. Fieramusca allegedly faked a pregnancy and later allegedly kidnapped and strangled Broussard in order to keep Heidi’s baby and pass her off as her own.

Thanks to Texas Rangers, Houston and Austin Police, the plan was stopped.

But not in time to prevent the murder of Heidi Broussard, 33, of Austin, also mother to a young son.

Police were hopeful Broussard was alive.

Finding her body, Austin police said was a “heartbreaking development.”

“It’s been a horrible week here in Austin,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge Christopher Combs. “We were hoping to find Heidi alive.”

The alleged murderer appeared to also have Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Heidi, originally from Louisiana, was described as kind by her neighbors in Austin.
