An investigation was opened Friday, November 22nd, the same day an add appeared on Craigslist attempting to sell a newborn for $500.  The author of the post offered to throw in the baby's 4 year old sister for free.


What's not clear is whether this posting is intended to be some kind of sick joke, or a serious attempt to sell a child.


The Florida Department of Law Enforcement has already identified and spoken to a person of interest in the case, but that individual has denied any involvement.  Law enforcement is now awaiting the return of computer records in hopes of identifying the author of the post.


The investigation is ongoing.
