Who is Heidi Broussard’s husband?

Heidi Broussard was not officially married but was engaged to her boyfriend, Shane Carey.

Shane was the father of her two children; a daughter named Margo and a son called Silas.

In 2019, Broussard announced that she was pregnant with her second child and got engaged to the baby’s father Shane Carey.

Carey understood the friendship between his partner and her friend to the extend that he would give her a key to their home.

After Broussard went missing, Carey assumed that both of the women were kidnapped and begged the public to help find them.

“I don’t know why anybody would ever harm or touch these two beautiful women together,” he told ABC affiliate KVUE at the time.

Her best friend-turned-murderer, Magen, also had a boyfriend called Christopher Green at the time of the murder.

How many children did Heidi Broussard have?

Before Heidi Broussard was murdered, she was a mother of two; a son and a daughter, per TheSun.

The names of her kids are Silas Carey, 9, and Margot Carey, 4.

On the day of her disappearance, she had dropped her older son at Cowan Elementary in South Austin.

Neighbors said they last saw her hugging Fieramusca on her porch, before getting in her car with Fieramusca and her baby daughter Margo.

Following her death, her daughter Margo was kidnapped by Magen but was found safe when police found Fieramusca, and her ex-boyfriend Christopher Green. They lived in Jersey Village, Texas, in late 2019.

Margo was later placed in the custody of Child Protective Services for a while and then was returned to her father and Broussard’s family.

What happened to Heidi Broussard?

On December 12, 2019, Heidi and her one-month-old daughter Margo went missing after she dropped her son off at Cowan Elementary School.

On December 19 of the same year, police located Heidi’s corpse in a duffel bag in the trunk of her best friend Magen Fieramusca’s car.

Her infant daughter was found alive and unharmed at Fieramusca’s residence.

She and Fieramusca had been close friends for over a decade; they met through church camp.

The assailant was arrested for Heidi’s murder and charged with capital murder, kidnapping, and tampering with a corpse.

Prosecutors believed Fieramusca killed Heidi so she could take Margo and raise her as her own daughter.

They also believed the assailant started plotting her scheme while the victim was pregnant.

While the victim was pregnant with her daughter, the assailant also faked her own pregnancy.

On February 2, 2023, Fieramusca pleaded guilty to Heidi’s first-degree murder and was sentenced to 55 years in prison.

During her impact statement, Heidi’s grieving mother Tammy Broussard told the court: “This is something I never imagined in my whole life that her children would have to face.

“Thinking of her gives me peace amidst the pain. We miss her dearly.”
