A 29-year-old Texas woman is behind bars today after authorities said she SOLD her 7-year-old son. The investigation took place over several days and, although the child was sold, they were able to recover him from the TWO men that she sold him to!
"The news release states that agents located a seven-year-old boy, who was allegedly sold by 29-year-old Esmeralda Garza. The boy was purchased by two other males according to jail records.
Investigators added the investigation uncovered that two more children were in the process of being sold. DPS Troopers said Garza was attempting to sell two children, a two-year-old girl, and a three-year-old girl.
Garza was arrested and charged with sale or purchase of a child, which investigators say is a third-degree felony. She was taken to the Nueces County Jail and her bond amount was set at $100,000.
Meanwhile, during the DPS investigation last Friday, investigators say a male and a female were also arrested as a result of a drug investigation and additional charges are expected to be filed.
They were transported also to Nueces County Jail.
The investigation is not over according to DPS Troopers and additional charges could be filed in this investigation against Garza."
I understand that times are hard and sometimes people feel as if they're up against a wall HOWEVER, this is not what you do when you can no longer take care of your children. If you need money and can't take care of your children, take them to a safe shelter, a family member or CPS and sell yourself! There have been too many cases over the years of children who have been sold turning up dead and this is ABSOLUTELY not cool!
I hope they all live out the rest of their days behind bars.
