A high school football player committed a horrific crime over the weekend in Indiana. Aaron Trejo, 16, is accused of killing his pregnant classmate and tossing her body in a dumpster. Trejo told police he murdered Breana Rouhselang because she waited too long to tell him she was pregnant with his child.

According to a report in the IndyStar, Breana Rouhselang and Aaron Trejo were classmates at Mishawaka High School. The two teenagers had known each other since elementary school. Trejo played football for the high school team, and Rouhselang was the team’s student manager.

While the details of their relationship remain unclear, at some point the two had sex and Rouhselang became pregnant. Trejo learned about her pregnancy and heard through the rumor mill that the child was likely his.

By the time Trejo learned about Rouhselang’s pregnancy she was more than 20 weeks pregnant. The state of Indiana does not allow abortions after 20 weeks gestation.

According to Rouhselang’s stepmother, Nicole Rouhselang, on Saturday evening her stepdaughter went to speak with Trejo about the baby. Rouhselang left her house around 11 pm. When Breana didn’t return home by 1 am, Nicole grew concerned.

At around 1 am, Nicole told police she went over to Trejo’s home to find out where Breana was. Trejo told Nicole that he went to an alley behind Breana’s house to talk to her around 11 pm, but she never showed up.

After speaking with Trejo, Nicole called the police. Officers went to the alley where Trejo said he went to meet Breana and found glasses and a stocking cap that belonged to Breana. The stocking cap looked like there was blood on it.

Shortly after finding the stocking cap and glasses, police found Breana’s body in a dumpster in the alley. A black plastic bag covered her torso and head.

When police located Breana’s body, they brought Trejo into the police station to question him about her death. Initially, Trejo told police the same story he told Breana’s stepmother. When police asked Trejo about the pregnancy, his story completely changed.

Trejo told police he went to talk with Breana about the pregnancy that night. He said that the two argued over the pregnancy. Trejo said he was angry that she waited to tell him because he wanted her to have an abortion. Realizing that Breana couldn’t abort the child, Trejo said he took “took action” and solved the problem.

According to police, Trejo brought a knife with him to meet Breana. During their argument, Trejo stabbed and killed Breana. After she died, Trejo threw her body into a nearby dumpster and covered her with a plastic trash bag he brought from home. Next, he said he walked to a river near the alley and threw Breana’s cell phone and the knife into the water.

An autopsy performed on Breana determined that she died from multiple stab wounds. A scarf tied around her neck had been used to strangle her before she died. Following Trejo’s confession, police charged him in the murder of Breana and the unborn fetus.

Word of her death spread Sunday night as the football team prepared for the annual football banquet. Instead of athletes and parents celebrating the end of the season, the group joined together to mourn the murder of Breana.

Police booked Trejo into St. Joseph County Jail. Prosecutors said Trejo would be tried as an adult for the murder. Trejos is ordered to remain in jail without bond. His first court appearance is on December 11, 2018.

Nicole Rouhselang said that Breana played softball, was a cheerleader, and managed the football team. Nicole is still in shock following Breana’s death. She told ABC7, “I’ve known her since she was 6,” she said. “I just don’t understand it.”

While the relationship between Trejo and Breana seems unclear, people close to the case say there was no indication of previous violence between the two.

According to an article published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, murder is the number one cause of death for pregnant women. The study published in 2001, determined that 20% of pregnancy-related deaths were associated with murder. Most of the killings are connected to the partner, husband, or father of the unborn child.

Today a community in Indiana grieves the loss of a young woman gone too soon, and a football star sits behind bars because he wanted to get rid of a problem. According to school administrators, students will have access to counselors to work through their grief.

    A football star murderer sits behind bars because he wanted to get rid of a problem

    > “According to an article published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, murder is the number one cause of death for pregnant women.”

    They would say that. Actually, auto accidents are a slightly higher cause, however the major cause is medical misadventure. I’ve seen claims it runs up to 8 times as high as auto accidents.

    And in the US it is getting worse, not better. But the doctors try to obscure that.

    BTW, beware of some of these numbers. For example, one study of homicide of pregnant women included women who were murdered up to one year after giving birth!

    Also be careful at including husbands. This very case did NOT involve a husband and that is very common.

  • So are you done FUDding with this?

  • husbands were a part of the study. Sorry -not my study.

    Just kill her.

    Kill her if she won’t have sex with you.
    Kill her if she has sex with someone else.
    Kill her if she’s pregnant.
    Kill her if you don’t want to lose money in a divorce.
    Kill her if you want her money for yourself.
    Kill her if she annoys you.

    Man’s answer to every problem with a woman…kill her.

    He didn’t just “become angry” while talking to her and take out his anger on her. He brought a knife and a large plastic bag with him to the meeting.
    He went to meet her knowing he planned to kill her.

  • Jim Jones

    Correcting misinformation? No, why would I be?

  • Jim Jones

    I know, but as I said, when I dived into some of these back around 2002, I found some pretty serious BS was involved.

  • Jay Has

    Premeditated murder. Should definitely be life without parole.

    I bet you’ll say WHAT! at least three times.

  • Kirkyshooter

    If men/males had reproductive equality with women, and could make the same unilateral decisions to abrogate parental responsibility, in the same time frames as women, this kind of thing would reduced. If legal “paper abortions” or “paper safe drops” were available to men, women/females could not ransom them by deception, making it less likely to foster desperation actions.

  • swbarnes2

    If men want “reproductive equality” with women, they’d better start carrying 50% of the pregnancies.

  • lady_black

    Oh, he was angry. Boo-f*cking-hoo. Put him up under a jail cell and lose the key. That will solve many problems.

  • lady_black

    Men will NEVER have reproductive equality with women, because 1) they don’t share equal burdens, and 2) SURPRISE! He doesn’t OWN her because he managed to ejaculate inside her!
    Grow up, Bluto. If he doesn’t want a pregnancy, let him have a vasectomy, or use condoms. In a pregnancy, he has no say, unless HE is pregnant.

  • Jack Baynes, Sandwichmaker

    Wear I condom or get the snip and quit whining.

  • Kirkyshooter

    Then ladies need to stop worrying about abortions, get a snip or keep their legs closed, it takes two, both are culpable or capable, good for the goose? Good for the gander! Interesting to note, you don’t even have to be the biological father to get blackmailed for child support… so snip or condome (which can fail) are not the answer.
    And females wonder why men are losing interest in marriage or relationships, it’s a zero sum lose-lose game…

  • Kirkyshooter

    18 years or more of crippling financial burden is somehow nothing when they may not want to be a parent in the first place but get trapped by someone else’s unilateral choice? When that other person has a safe unilateral choice even after birth to abrogate any parental responsibility? You don’t want equality, you want superiority and privilege. And you wonder why some don’t support abortion…

  • Kirkyshooter

    Ps, if she chooses to keep a child he doesn’t want, she should take responsibility for her choice, nobody said anything about forcing her to do things with her body, ply take responsibility for her unilateral choices… if she can choose unilaterally to terminate parental responsibility for a child that is his too, he should have the same right, it has nothing to do with bodily autonomy, it has everything to do with legal equality of rights…

  • Kirkyshooter

    Men often end up with the majority of the responsibility for the child for the first couple decades of their lives.
    And females wonder why men can’t wait for the artificial womb…

  • Lizard

    Here’s a novel idea: if he doesn’t want a kid, he can use a condom. Or, I dunno, keep his dick in his pants.

  • Lizard

    “And females wonder why men are losing interest in marriage or relationships”

    Because men are whiny assholes who can’t look at a story about a young woman being murdered by a sexual partner without wailing about “his” rights and then being a douchebag when called out? News flash, sweetheart: we’re not “wondering” anything. Your mistake is assuming all men are like you, and we don’t miss men like you. If this is your opinion of women, that we’re disposable the minute a dude feels threatened, that our bodies are the same as your wallet, you can stay far the fuck away from me and all other “females,” thank you very much.

    Carrying a pregnancy isn’t “parental responsibility.” She is not yet a parent, and neither is he.
    Child support is the right of the child. Both parents are responsible.

  • lady_black

    She has the same eighteen years of financial burden.

  • lady_black

    LOL.

  • Anat

    Death up to a year after giving birth is a pretty common definition for pregnancy-related death in general because many effects of pregnancy and childbirth result in later complications.

  • Anat

    Abortion is not abrogation of parental responsibility because there is no parental responsibility before one becomes a parent.

  • Jim Jones

    I’ll accept it for medical misadventure, but not for homicide.
