Tennessee couple accused of trying to sell a 5-month-old baby online for A$3,932 (US$3000).

News outlets report that the Greene County Sheriff’s Office arrested 37-year-old, Deanna Lynn Greer, and 26-year-old, John David Cain, on Friday charged with aggravated child abuse and aggravated child neglect or endangerment, shared News.com.au.

Sheriff Pat Hankins says authorities were alerted after another couple saw an ad posted on Craigslist listing the infant for sale.

Craigslist provides classifieds and forums for jobs, housing, for sale, personals, services, local community and events.

Hankins says an undercover officer contacted Greer and Cain and was given the price for the child. He says the couple then met with the agent at a shop, exchanged the baby for cash and both were then taken into custody.

Hankins says the child is in state custody, and the couple are being held on a A$196,605 (US$150,000) bond.

  • what a joke! how pathetic of a person would you have to be to be able to do this to your own child! no way!


  • Do hope this turns out to be nothing but a hoax. How could any parents think of selling their child? Only drug addicts would try to do something like this.


  • Poor little darling. These so called parents had no idea what sort of person they were selling this baby to. Nor what this persons intentions were for this baby. Mind bogglingly sickening


  • I am horrified by this article. I’m going to be vindictive. I hope they die from guilt. Why should the USA Govt. and its taxpayers support them by feeding them etc. I’m glad the authorities found about the baby’s plite and rescued


  • That’s disgusting and sad. How could you ever give up your child? For whatever reason? You just make it work even if times are tough!


  • Oh my goodness, imagine if this poor little baby ended up in the wrong hands. Thank God the police got involved. This is just beyond comprehension how anyone could do this.


  • This is beyond comprehension. Who knows what horrible things could have happened to the baby. Glad the child is now in safe hands. Lock these two morons in jail and throw away the keys


  • Wow, really? I’d heard something similar before and thought it was a bad joke. Some people should NOT be parents.


  • Keep them in jail for life. Morons!


  • Hope they receive a sentence fit for trying to sell a beautiful baby!


  • Lol! Haven’t we have all thought about doing this at one point or another thought! ???? I’m sure they weren’t serious

    • They indeed were serious. The couple actually exchanged the baby for cash with an undercover officer.

      All I can say is thank heavens for the couple who saw the listing and alerted authorities.
      Also I am praying for the wee infant and pray it gets all the love and care possible.


  • That is so horrible :( Poor baby!


  • Omg! Hope they rot in jail!
