We have had a handful of emails about a popular blogger, Beccah Beushausen, a 26-year-old woman from Lockport, Illinois, who faked being pregnant with a very ill baby (trisomy 13 and Holoprosencephaly), and then posted pictures of one very realistic-looking "reborn" doll as the miracle baby, "April Rose". She took donations and had advertisements as well.
Beccah is the owner of "See Through Me Studios", and has taught children at an art studio in New Lenox, IL in the past.
If you donated money to this person, please contact the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center or the Lockport Illinois Police.
The following are links sent to us about her story. Please feel free to add any others in our comments section.
Thank you to everyone who sent us emails about this story.
