CaseEdit

Details: On July 10, 1997, Kristine Sue Westin, who was eight and a half months pregnant, and her boyfriend, Kevin Dale Woo, checked in the Lady Luck Hotel in Las Vegas, after spending three days partying, drinking, and ripping off retail stores. Three days later, she went into labor and delivered a healthy, normal, fully-developed baby boy in the bathroom of their hotel room, and Kevin, not knowing what to do, called the hospital but when they started asking questions, he hung up, so an ambulance was quickly sent to the hotel. Security was alerted when the ambulance arrived, so they went to her room where they found her on the bed and their baby deceased in the toilet. She was taken to the hospital and Kevin followed, but when authorities tried to question him at the hospital, he excused himself to the bathroom and fled. With the baby's cause of death undetermined, authorities questioned her, and she was surprisingly calm and not upset; she appeared to care more about her belongings in the hotel than her son. The next morning, an autopsy determined that the he had been born alive and had been drowned by his parents. When authorities went to the hospital, they found that she had checked out and vanished.
Then, two days later, Kristine and Kevin apparently stole a pickup truck in Henderson, Nevada, and it was later found abandoned in Los Angeles. When the FBI was brought in, thy were charged with second-degree murder, child abuse, possession of a controlled substance, and carjacking. Authorities soon discovered that they had continued in their life of crime. Kristine has been sighted twice in Southern California, and in October 2001, she was arrested by the Costa Mesa Police Department for shoplifting, but she was able to avoid identification by using one of her aliases, Kari Lynn Meeker, and she soon vanished again. Authorities believe that she and Kevin are traveling together. Shortly after the murder, the Las Vegas Chapter of the Knights of Columbus gave their son a name, Kyle, and a proper burial, but his parents are still at large.
Extra Notes: This case first aired on the June 27, 2002 episode.
Results: Captured. Kristine was arrested in Lynwood, Washington on a charge of shoplifting in March 2003. The police then tracked Kevin to the motel where they were living. After a thirty-hour stand-off with the police, he took his own life. She pleaded guilty to felony child abuse and involuntary manslaughter and sentenced to five to twenty four years in prison.
