The two parents made previous attempts to cause a miscarriage but were unsuccessful, according to the report. Blaha also asked Thomas for Methamphetamine to help ease childbirth pain.

Text messages show Thomas hit the body in the woods, but police have not been able to find the remains, according to KCCI. Authorities have searched for the baby’s remains since November.
