On a hot, August day, heavily pregnant Savanna Greywind was in her family’s apartment in Fargo, North Dakota. Her neighbor, Brooke Crews, came down to ask Savanna to help her with a sewing project, which Savanna agreed to. Savanna followed her neighbor upstairs and entered her apartment, expecting to spend a few minutes helping before returning to her own apartment for a quiet afternoon. Savanna would never return home, and it would be a week before her body was found.
