Mother Tries To Sell Her Kids On Facebook For $4,000
Mashable reports that a woman named Misty VanHorn, a 22-year-old mother of two in Oklahoma, was arrested this past Saturday for trafficking of minors after repeatedly trying to sell her children on Facebook. VanHorn offered her 10-month-old girl for $1,000 or a package deal of the girl as well as her two-year-old for $4,000.
Another woman, in Fort Smith, Arkansas, was discussing buying the children from VanHorn and thus, there may be federal charges, as Fort Smith is over the state border.
In a Facebook message to the prospective buyer, VanHorn said, “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.”
Police believe the woman wanted the $1,000 to bail her boyfriend out of jail. Ironically, she is now being held for $40,000 bail.
The children are now in the care of the state’s department of human services.

Surrounded by rescued elephants, everything became so clear to me: I wanted the next chapter of my life to be dedicated to protecting these majestic animals.
This must be their revenge on the higher powers that thought it would be great to create a duck with the body of a beaver.
She’s still beautiful. Her photos and her pixelated life are simple in a way that reminds me of why I loved her so dearly.
How ironic that my quest for the control of my life causes my sanity to spiral out of control.
