A Florida woman was arrested earlier this week for trying to sell her 8-week-old grandson. Ironically, the person she was trying to sell the baby to was a biological daughter of hers whom she had given up for adoption.
Patty Bigbee, 44, was arrested in a Dayton Beach parking lot where she and her boyfriend, Lawrence Works, went to complete the transaction and turnover the infant baby boy. Works was also arrested and charged with being a principal in the illegal sale of a child.
The child's mother knew about the attempted sale, and was supposed to get part of the illegal adoption money in order to buy a car, according to investigators.
