Lady Tries to Sell Her Two Children For Money to Bond Her Boyfriend Out of Jail
A 22-year-old lady from Sallisaw, Oklahoma was arrested this week for attempting to sell her two children -- a 2-year-old and a 10-months-old -- to a woman in Fort Smith, Arkansas. According to police, Misty VanHorn offered to sell her 2-year-old for $1,000 or both kids for $4,000. The Fort Smith woman called the Department of Human Services, who in turn notified Sallisaw Police. Detectives say Misty told them she needed $1,000 to bond her boyfriend out of jail. Ah, isn't love grand?! She was charged with trafficking children and remains jailed on $40,000 bond. Both children were placed into state custody.
Sidebar: It's not immediately clear how Misty knew the woman she tried to sell her children to. Did she post an ad on Craigslist or sent her a message on Facebook?
