State agents are trying to figure out who recently posted a Craigslist ad purporting to want to sell a newborn child for $500.
“Baby is 2weeks old. It sleeps, don’t make noise at night,” the ad read. “Formula and clothes will give it to you. Can give you the baby 4 year old sister for free.”
Investigators are unsure whether the ad was a crude hoax, or someone actually trying to sell a child online. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement launched the probe Friday, soon after the ad was posted to the popular classifieds website.
The poster also claimed to live in a “quiet influential neighborhood” and to work for “the department of children and families.”
