Lindzie Wilson Murder: Mom Kept on Life Support to Deliver Baby Boy Before Her Death

Playing Little Boy Serves as Pallbearer at Mom's Funeral After Her Murder

A pregnant woman who was shot in Ohio was kept on life support so she could deliver her baby.

Lindzie Wilson, 25, was shot on March 1 but remained on life support until April 21, when doctors delivered her baby. She died just three days later.

Wilson was reportedly 16 weeks pregnant when she was shot multiple times, including once in the head, outside her home, police said.

It was days before her 26th birthday.

Her baby boy, Bailee, was born premature at 23 weeks and is expected to be in the hospital until August. Wilson also had two other children, ages 8 and 5. 

The 8-year-old served as a pallbearer at her funeral.

“Heartbreaking isn't even the word," Wilson’s best friend, Jana Yates, told InsideEdition.com. "She’s an amazing, beautiful woman [who] did not deserve this and the coward [who] did this will pay.”

Wilson was also engaged to be married.

Police have not yet named a suspect in the shooting, but "investigators definitely have things that they’re working with in this case," Springfield Police Chief Lee Graf said.

An autopsy determined that Wilson died from trauma caused by a gunshot wound to the head. The case has been ruled a homicide.

Wilson is the second pregnant woman to be fatally shot in Springfield in the last two months.

Lindsey Marsh was killed on April 5, at 30 weeks pregnant. Her baby was delivered by cesarean section and was uninjured, reports said.

The father of her child, Travis Hypes, has been charged with murder, reports said. He has pleaded not guilty.

Police noted the cases are not related.

"In a sense of unusual — I think more than anything it's tragic," Graf said of both cases.

Graf said anyone with information on Wilson's case should call 937-324-7685 or 937-324-7716.
