Police Grow Suspicious After Mom Asks This One Specific Question Right After Baby's Death

mother

Stephanie Castillo, 42, of Eden Prairie, Minnesota, has seen her share of hard times and controversy. She recently experienced a tragedy, but investigators are suspicious this may be another scandal the mother has gotten herself into.

According to court documents, on July 18, Castillo drove her 2-month-old son Leo to Fairview Southdale Hospital in Edina, Minnesota. Within 40 minutes her son was dead.

Investigators said that within 20 minutes of hearing that her son died, Castillo asked how soon death benefits would be paid to her. Documents also mention that doctors recall her being "unusually upset" after she heard that an autopsy would be performed on her son.

Eden Prairie police found her behavior and history suspicious, so they issued a search warrant on the blue minivan that Castillo used to bring Leo to the hospital.

When Fox 9 approached Castillo about the incident, she declined to comment.

In January, Castillo was charged with eight counts of embezzlement. The total amount stolen was $1.3 million. Castillo allegedly stole the money from the property management company of which she was vice president.

Her accusers say the money was stolen to fund her shopping addiction and her husband's business in Mexico, reports StarTribune. Investigators said that she would forge checks and log fake invoices and had been doing so since 2009.

Court documents reveal that her pending embezzlement case is what makes the death of her son and her reactions so suspicious.

So far, no charges have been filed concerning Leo's death and the autopsy has not yet been completed.
