Yesterday the police received a tip regarding the whereabouts of Baby Elaina Steinfurth. Remains have been found in a computer box that was in Angela Steinfurth’s boyfriend’s (Stephen King) garage. The baby went missing on June 1st. The coroner will determine whether this is in fact baby Elaina. Both Steinfurth and King are currently incarcerated.
Today Stephen King, the boyfriend of Elaina’s Mom, pleaded not guilty to charges of obstructing the police investigation of this case. Yesterday when the Mom, Angela Steinfurth appeared in court also for obstructing justice, we heard for the first time that the case is being investigated as a homicide. The family is still holding out hope that the baby is alive. Links for both articles below:

Relatives of a cellmate of Angela Steinfurth (the baby’s Mom) contacted the FBI with the following information: Angela confessed to helping her boyfriend dispose of the baby’s body. According to the source (Connie Elam) Angela’s boyfriend, Stephen W. King, threw baby Elaina against a wall late the eve of June 1, injuring her. He then put the toddler down for a nap and returned later to find the baby had died of the injuries. They then wrapped her up in a blanket and took her down by the high-level bridge and threw the baby inn the river. A neighbor said she saw the couple leave between 12- 1am in their van for about 20 minutes. Relatives of the cellmate say she has nothing to gain by providing this information. Link to full article:
