Pregnancy of Woman in Long-Term Coma Was ‘Quite a Ways Along’ — But Staff Had ‘No Clue’: Police

As Arizona authorities investigate the sexual assault of a woman at a nursing facility who gave birth to a boy while in a vegetative state for more than a decade, the question of how her pregnancy went unnoticed remains unanswered.

At a Wednesday press conference, when asked if the 29-year-old woman had a full-term pregnancy, Sgt. Tommy Thompson of the Phoenix Police Department said she was “quite a ways along” and had a natural birth on Dec. 29.
