Tiffany Hall

Click HERE for the story from the USA Today.

A baby sitter clubbed a pregnant woman in the head repeatedly with a table leg, then cut her fetus from the womb in a bathtub where she later drowned the victim's three young children, an investigator testified Wednesday.

The grisly details in the September slayings of Jimella Tunstall and her family were revealed at a hearing where a coroner's jury, after a few minutes of deliberations, concluded the deaths were homicides. Tiffany Hall, 24, has been charged with first-degree murder and faces a possible death sentence in the death of Tunstall and with intentional homicide of an unborn child — Tunstall's 7-month-old fetus. She has pleaded not guilty and remains jailed on $5 million bond.

She has not been charged in the drownings of the children, ages 7, 2 and 1, although authorities have said she confessed and led them to the bodies. Prosecutor Robert Haida has said those deaths eventually will be presented to a grand jury for possible charges.

Illinois State Police investigator David Bivens told the coroner's jury that Hall "had been thinking about taking the baby for some time" from Tunstall before going through with it. Bivens said Hall confessed on videotape that she hit Tunstall twice over the head with a table leg in Hall's mother's East St. Louis house Sept. 15, then bound the woman's hands and feet with duct tape. When Tunstall tried to wriggle free, Bivens said, Hall hit her again and taped the woman's mouth shut before apparently dragging the unconscious woman to the bathtub. Hall used a scissor-like implement to cut open the woman's womb and remove the fetus, Bivens said. The coroner's jury ruled Tunstall bled to death.

The body of Tunstall was first hidden by Hall in a plastic container in the basement, then dragged outside into high weeds behind the house where it was found, Bivens said. Later that day, Bivens said, Hall summoned police to an East St. Louis park — just blocks from where Tunstall's body later was found — saying she had given birth to a stillborn child after she said she had been sexually attacked in St. Louis. At a hospital, Bivens said, Hall refused to let doctors examine her.

Tunstall's body had not been found by Sept. 18, when her children were last seen alive with Hall.
According to Bivens, Hall admitted she drowned 2-year-old Ivan Tunstall-Collins and 1-year-old Jinela Tunstall in the same bathtub where their mother had been slain, then found their 7-year-old brother, DeMond Tunstall.

"She told DeMond it was time to take a bath, and she drowned him, too," Bivens said.
During the baby's Sept. 21 funeral, Bivens testified, Hall confessed to her boyfriend that the baby wasn't his and that she had killed the mother to get it. The boyfriend notified police, who found Tunstall's body and arrested Hall.

The bodies of the children were found in the washer and dryer of Tunstall's apartment, after Hall reportedly directed police there. They had searched the apartment earlier but did not look in the washer and dryer.

A relative of Tunstall's told reporters through tears after Bivens' testimony that she feels sorry for Hall and does not believe the death penalty should be in play. "I just think she should be in prison the rest of her life to think about what she did," said Regina Kizer, a cousin of Tunstall's. "God's gonna have the upper hand."

Why oh why do people feel that this monster will suffer at the hands of God? There is no "God" and the sooner people stop believing in this nonsense,they will act accordingly and do the right thing. The death penalty.

There is a GOD and once people realize there is a GOD it will be to late. GOD created all and he sees all so how dare you say there is no GOD. He is the reason you are breathingthe mercy of GOD. I feel sorry for all of the people in volved in this story. May GOD have mercy on her soul. She did not have mercy for those babies or their mother.

Oh wow, you saw and spoke to GOD? Oh..well then you died and spoke? Oh hmm..so you just believe..umm ok then. I used to do that to with the Easter bunny, then I GREW UP! This was a human desire to have the child at all cost. She deserves to suffer for the pain and death she caused..end of true story. You may believe what you want, I believe in rules of civility for all humans. If you don't play fair you get just punishment.

They should have kept that crazy bitch locked up when she was 14. I was in the Saint Clair County Detention Center with her, and EVERYONE knew ahe was fucking nuts then!!!! She needs be sentenced to death!!! Those poor babies didn't have a say.

How then do you explain the basis for any morality whatsoever? God is real and came to this earth in the person of Jesus Christ. So many refuse to believe simply because they choose not to even learn anything about him. How can you explain the very life we are given? We are so quick to pass judgement on one another when we have not taken time to know one another. My heart is saddened by your comments.

I just watched this story on The Discovery I.D. Channel on cable.
That crazy chick is exactly where she needs to be. Remember people, other prisoners HATE child killers. The first chance they get she will pay for her actions 10 fold! I hope they hold her head underwater til she passes out, bring her back, then repeat drowning her on a daily basis. I hope they cut her stomach open w/out pain meds, stitch her up, let her heal then repeat those actions til the day she dies in prison on a shitty pissy floor!! Hopefully she's some butch chick bitch & hating every second of it.

To say God doesn't exist because he can't be seen is simplistic and childish; as is any attempt to equate Him with pagan symbols like the easter bunny or fairies. Air, electricity, and emotional pain can't be seen either; but I challenge anyone to deny thier existence. In addition the comment that seems to limit this vile behavior to "niggers" is ignorance personified. No ethnic group in the history of the world has saturated this Earth with more innocent blood than that of the person whose group is fond of calling other groups names. Native Americans, Asians, Africans, Irishmen, and countless others have taken thier last breath at the hand of this group.Susan Smith, as well as the Staff Sgt. that just killed sixteen persons as they slept (including 9-children) adds to your group's legacy of carnage. So before you start to moralize to or about any other group wake-up, bathe, do some research, and then get on your knees and beg the God whose existence you question to forgive your willful ignorance; you idiot!!!!!!!

Truly sad story, but to condemn actions like this to only "niggers" is absurd! Let's not forget people like BTK, white man who killed over 20 people in 30 years some in front of their kids, oh and what about the man who severed the head of Adam Walsh?? Oh wait, on this same exact broadcast the "white" man Christian who tied rocks to his kids feet and dropped them in the Oregan river, then ran off to Mexico with his girlfriend, at least she had heart enough to confess....SMH.

First of all, the first known case of AIDS was a gay White man living in San Francisco. At the time he died of the disease it didn't even have a name. So before people start talking about AIDS infected Africa they need to learn the history of the disease process. God is real, and if he wasn't ignorant people would not be able to type crazy s$#@ on their computer because there would be NO WORLD! He holds all atoms and molecules togather each and every day. Everyone must die one day, may God have mercy on ignorant, hate-filled Anon. Good luck!

Where was the aids and god in this story? I don't believe in aids.

Gee, you learned to spell "niggers" but don't know the difference between "they're" and "their". Idiot, "their" is a third person possessive pronoun; "they're" is the contraction for "they" + "are". Before you start yapping about people being niggers maybe you can become educated so that you don't sound like a dumb-assed NIGGER!!!

You need to stay off here cause niggers don't have anything to do with the story..It five deaths on here and you talking about that...shows your stupidity. Maybe the reason you are anonymous?????if you don't have anything nice to say shake...bitch

Some people are so stupid and need to grow up! I'll be sure to pray that GOD have mercy on you for the ignorant things that you have allowed to come out of your mouth!! This has nothing to do with blacks nor whites, but humanity as a whole!! God be with the Tunstall and Hall families, Tiffany will some day have to meet her maker and he will have the final say concerning her doom.

Whats important is the victims! Each race on earth has tragedy equally. If one kills no matter the race they all fit into the same category.. Scum bag murderers that has no color.

I too feel sorry for you. Only a foolish person who doesn't know about God would say that. You need to pick up a bible and read, pray and get some true spiritual knowledge.How you think you got here, how you think you have all you have including the breath you breath and life you live. God is more real than you are. And one thing for certain, two things for sure, God will make you a believer, either now or when you die. My suggestion to you, don't wait till you die.

Wow, all of I have to say is EVERYBODY on here commenting against blacks or whites you ALL are wrong! The issue shouldn't even be race at all in GOD's eyes everybody is equal thus the quote in the Bible "I made them all in my image". It's extremely sad when there's a situation so evil as this one what this monster did to her so called best friend and ALL her beautiful children! Tiffany Hall is true product of Satan! That should be the focus of the comments about the evil that happened NOT RACIST REMARKS! Jesus loves everybody the same and at the same token it's obvious the devil too is very much real with people like Tiffany Hall being in the world! God bless the families involved and now that beautiful woman and her 4 angels are together again for all eternity happy in Heaven and may they always know GOD's love and mercy!

Jeez people! Shut up about "my poor race" and "no, my race has been treated worse than yours!" This report is about a chick who obviously has mental problems, but she also is a horrible person because she was smart enough and sane enough to keep her plan to kill Jimella to herself long enough to actually do it, and Tiffany deserves to get what she did done to her. Just bc she confessed doesn't mean she's better than other killers, that means nothing! This bitch slowly killed a woman, her unborn baby, one child, another child, and another child, how much time did it take for her to be looking in their eyes while she killed each one? Those babies did nothing wrong! What I want to know is who specifically is Jimella's boyfriend, Shawn Smith, because I had a boyfriend named Shawn Smith in St Louis for a couple years, too.

This has nothing to do with god! I dont believe in god and ive been going to catholic school all my life. So what? I think i came here by the big bang theory. You cant do anything about my religion oand religion has nothing to do with this. for the story its sad. She really needs the death sentence. Anyone who kills three kids and a mother just to raise the fetus as her own is just plain mental. And its sad that the fetus didnt survive.

Niggers is not a race.....look it up. So when someone use that term you allow them the joy by assuming that they are speaking of the Black race. Therefore if it don't apply let it fly. This was about a sick young lady and her bad choices. Have mercy on her soul and may the slain young lady and her four children souls be saved. Tiffany probably wish she was dead. Can you imagine what she see or hear everytime she try to sleep.....she will never be at peace in this lifetime again....ointfr

most baby snatchers are whites and they use this method to cut out babies from their mothers wombs to steal them after killing the mother. Most serial killers are whites. Most cannibals are whites. blacks my commit petty crimes but big crimes that actually ruin society are committed by whites,
