France's Dominque Cottrez infanticide case worst in history of the country. The forty five year old mother of two living daughter's has been convicted of "systematically killing her babies since 1988." Cottrez hid 8 pregnancies and the bodies of her babies from her husband, Pierre Marie. New owners of a home the couple once shared in Villers-au-Tertre found human remains buried in their garden for over 20 years and informed local police. Officials report that the first home belonged to Cottrez's mother before the present occupants purchased the home.
Days later, at a second home just half of a mile away, occupants of a second home found the bodies of six more children buried throughout the grounds of the property.
Officials launched an investigation and traced the remains from both homes back to Cottrez and her husband. Cottrez confessed to kiling ten babies but K-9 units have only recovered 8 bodies wrapped in plastic bags at both residences.
