still can't wrap my head around this…….This happened less than a mile from us. They were "supposedly" close friends. Just goes to show you never know someone's true identity and the level of their crazy. https://t.co/UfKBOimsPs

Her parents lived beside my parents the last few years. I literally can’t wrap my head around the fact some one she was friends with could do this to her? Why? Did she seriously think she would get away with this?? I’m mind blown https://t.co/cMuWNDJgvc

The victim’s mother wrote on a Facebook post:
“Our beautiful daughter Reagan Hancock and her precious unborn baby girl Braxlynn were murdered yesterday by Satan in the flesh.”
“Our Reagan was one of the most precious people you would ever meet. Please I beg keep us in your prayers.”
Hancock and her husband Homer already have a three-year-old daughter and were expecting their second baby girl, “Braxlynn Sage.”
The baby was expected on November 10.
Hancock made the announcement on Facebook, which read:
“We are having another SWEET BABYGIRL come november the 10th (give or take). She already acts like her daddy & big sister.”
“We cannot wait for our Braxlynn Sage to be here. Daddy is definitely out numbered.”
This woman and her unborn child were brutally murdered by someone she claimed as a friend. Her friend stabbed her and cut her baby out of her. If you could find it in your heart to donate to the family, please do. https://t.co/EsHKAi7AwZ
