William Hoehn faces Conspiracy to Kidnap charges in this case.

Man facing charges in Greywind case convicted of Child Abuse in 2012

FARGO, ND  –  We’re learning new details into one of the people currently in jail after refusing to cooperate with a Fargo Police investigation into the disappearance of Savanna Greywind.

William Hoehn faces Conspiracy to Kidnap charges in this case, but was also convicted of Child Abuse back in 2012.

According to court documents in the case out of Grand Forks, Hoehn told investigators that his son was acting normal when he picked him up from daycare in early January.  No issue with the boy’s head were observed that day.  The boy’s mother, documents say, went to work that afternoon, and a few hours later Hoehn called her crying, saying that the boy had a swollen head.

Documents say he asked her if he should take the boy to the emergency room.

Hoehn does just that, doctors finding “a diagnosis of multiple fractures” on the boy’s skull.

Several doctors say in the documents that swelling would have occurred within hours after injuries such as these.

The boy was in Hoehn’s care that day.

William Hoehn faces up to 20 years in jail for this charge if convicted and given the maximum penalty.
