It was a regular morning at the home of Heidi Broussard and Shane Carey. Carey said goodbye to his fiance, their six-year-old son, and their newborn daughter, before heading to work. Broussard bundled baby Margot into the car, and dropped her young son off to primary school.

Broussard, 33, and three-week old Margot remained missing for eight days, before the young mother’s body was found in a duffle back in the trunk of a car outside a home in Houston. Following a search of the home, a baby who matched Margot’s description was found. She was unharmed.
The home was owned by 37-year-old Magen Fieramusca, Broussard's childhood friend. Fieramusca was arrested and initially charged with kidnapping and tampering with a corpse.
The woman — the victim's best friend of more than twenty years — would ultimately confess to her murder.
