Around 1,000 people were on hand for the funeral of Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind Thursday morning in Fargo.
The 22-year-old Greywind, who was 8-months pregnant, went missing Aug. 19 after her family said she agreed to help a fellow apartment tenant fit a dress. Police arrested Brooke Crews and William Hoehn after discovering what was believed to be Greywind's 2-day-old baby.
Police said kayakers on the Red River found a body wrapped in plastic and duct tape against a tree near 90th Avenue North and 15th Street north of Moorhead on Aug. 27.
That body was determined to be Greywind's.
On Thursday, over a dozen horses led the procession from the church to Sunset Memorial Gardens. The horses solemnly walked walked east on 35th, then down University to Sunset.
Greywind's obituary said she loved family first, but also loved all animals, especially horses. Her family has requested privacy and asked that only family go to the burial site with them.
WDAY is also reporting Haisley Jo, the baby believed to have been Greywind's, went to both Wednesday's vigil and the funeral services Thursday. Cass County Social Services would not comment to ABC-affliate WDAY on whether the baby has been permanently released back to the family.
