Heidi Broussard: Chronology of the case
KVUE has covered this case from the start when Broussard and her young daughter went missing in December 2019. About a week later, police found Broussard’s body in the trunk of a Harris County car.
Officers found Broussard’s daughter alive at Fieramusca’s home, where the car was parked. Investigators claim Fieramusca pretended the baby was her own.
Investigators later said Fieramusca abducted her childhood friend and the baby from their South Austin apartment. She now faces numerous charges, including kidnapping and capital murder.
In May 2022, a judge denied Fieramusca’s lawyers’ request that evidence against them be thrown out. Attorneys alleged that the evidence was obtained illegally when investigators entered the Harris County home without a search warrant.
On January 24, 2023, KVUE reported that the Travis County District Attorney’s Office expects Fieramusca to plead guilty to the January 31 murder of Broussard. The plea is conditional on Fieramusca receiving a 55-year sentence and waiving her right to appeal.
