A couple arrested after a pregnant woman and her baby were found dead in two different locations

Two people have been arrested after a pregnant Arkansas woman and her baby were found dead in separate locations.

Ashley Bush, who was 31 weeks pregnant, was found dead on Thursday – a day after her baby, Valkyrie Grace Willis, was found dead. Bush, 33, appears to have died of a gunshot wound, Benton County Prosecutor Nathan Smith said at a news conference. Benton County is in Arkansas and adjacent to Missouri, where the bodies were found.

Two of the suspects, Amber Waterman and Jamie Waterman, were arrested on kidnapping charges and are a couple from Missouri who met Bush online, Smith said. Evidence shows that Bush was looking for a work-from-home job online and believed she was going to meet someone for a job interview, Smith said.

It is unclear where Bush and her baby died. Additional charges are expected to be issued.

Smith said it was too early to know a motive.

The investigation is ongoing and police are not yet able to provide a timeline for the abduction and death. The FBI and police in two different counties are assisting in the investigation.

“This is just a reminder that there is evil in the world,” Smith said. “People do evil things. And for someone to pray to a pregnant woman in her most vulnerable state is unthinkable, but unfortunately that’s the world we live in.”
