Year in Review: Part 3 of 4

1 / 2
2 / 2

A local pageant queen made history, the daytime sky went dark, and a murder-kidnapping case broke our hearts.

As we start this new year, we are looking back at the stories that delighted and devastated us in 2017.

Here is the third in our four-part series:

A Fargo man gained notoriety when he was called out for being a white supremacist.

In August, Pete Tefft took part in a "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, that turned violent and deadly.

Pictures of him marching at the rally went viral.

Tefft describes himself as "pro-white" and family members say they reject his beliefs.

August 19th, 22-year-old Savanna Greywind of Fargo went missing.

She was eight months pregnant.

Family said she had gone to an upstairs neighbor's apartment to help with a sewing project.

Days later, police found a newborn baby in that apartment.

The two people who lived there, Brooke Crews and WIlliam Hoehn, were arrested.

Then, a little more than a week after she went missing, Savanna's body was found in the Red River.

The baby, Haisley Jo, was confirmed to be Savanna's through DNA testing.

She was returned to her biological father, Savanna's boyfriend Ashton.

Crews pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit murder and kidnapping.

She will be sentenced in January.

Hoehn has pleaded not guilty to the same charges; his trial is set for March.

For a few hours, it seemed the entire country stopped and looked to the sky, but hopefully not without some protective eyewear.

A total solar eclipse appeared over the United States in August for the first time since 1979.

Up north, we saw the moon cover 80% of the sun.

But some from our area traveled to the middle of the country to catch the stunning moment of totality.

And in September, one young woman made history for North Dakota.

Cara Mund from Bismarck, became the first from the state to take home the Miss America title in the pageant's 96-year history.
