Woman Arrested for Child-Trafficking on Facebook
Chris Hadley / 11 years ago
Every corner of Facebook these days has a local buy, sell and swap page and mostly you’ll find reasonable items on there that are harmless and have a genuine reason for sale. However one woman in Oklahoma has taken the idea of selling on Facebook to a whole new level by putting her CHILDREN up for sale.
The woman in question, put her two children up for sale on the social networking site after her boyfriend got arrested and thrown into jail. Whats more, is the woman could be in more trouble than she first though as someone actually offered the $1000 asking price for a ten month old baby girl plus all of her clothes. A message to the willing buyer reads:
“Just come to Sallisaw, it’s only 30 minutes away and I’ll give you all of her stuff and let y’all have her forever for $1,000”
To top this off 22 year old Misty VanHorn even offered up her two year old child in a ‘bundle’ deal for $4000. Considering the woman’s boyfriend was only being held on a $1000 bond, it leaves us to wonder what the extra money was for. Either way though she is going to need a lot more help herself now after a $40,000 jail bond was placed against her as the case gets looked into.
As the potential sale has spread out of the woman’s home state, this is now looking to become a federal case, however the chances of seeing her children again are slim after they were taken into custody and safe care of Oklahomas department of human services after they alerted the state police.
So before you think about putting your kids up for sale on Facebook, take a step back and think about the consequences as its pretty certain that child trafficking will be against the terms and conditions that you abide to when you register your account.
