Punish Parents Who Reportedly Tried to Sell Their Baby on Craigslist

Target: Dan E. Armstrong, District Attorney for Greene County, Tennessee

 Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the parents who allegedly tried to sell their 5-month-old baby on Craigslist for $3,000.

A Greene county couple allegedly tried to sell their baby on Craigslist. Per the arrest warrant, their ad read “5-month-old baby for sale” and listed the infant for $3,000. Demand justice for this innocent baby.

“Can you believe this? We bought a baby. It makes my heart drop,” stated Sheriff Pat Hankins. The Greene County Sheriff’s Department and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation responded to the ad after a concerned citizen alerted them. An undercover agent contacted the couple and arranged a meeting, where they reportedly exchanged the baby for $3,000.

John David Cain and Deanna Lynn Greer were arrested and charged with aggravated child abuse and aggravated child neglect or endangerment. The Department of Children’s Services took the baby into their custody. Sign below and demand that Cain and Greer receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.


Dear District Attorney Armstrong,

A couple reportedly tried to sell their 5-month-old baby for $3,000. They reportedly placed an ad on Craigslist and met with an undercover agent claiming to be an interested buyer. We demand justice for this innocent baby.

Per Sheriff Hankins, this was a human trafficking case unlike any the Greene County Sheriff’s Office has seen in 34 years. The warrant stated that Cain and Greer “did knowingly place the child in threat of serious danger, bodily injury or death by selling the child to an unknown person, (an) especially heinous, atrocious and cruel act.”

This horrific crime cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

    OMG, lock them up and throw away the key. This is beyond disgusting!! Bad enough people try to sell their pets on Craig’s List, now a baby?????

    Sorry, but Craig’s List needs to take some part in the responsibility as well They should NOT allow anyone to sell a living creature, or child on their site!!!

  2. Think vasectomy and tubal ligation. They do Not need to be bringing children into this world. Stop This Now. Disgusting. Animals are better parents.

    Absolutely disgusting and vile!
    Lock them up & throw away the key.
    Make sure to get them both fixed immediately so they cannot produce and put another innocent child in harms way.

    They have to be one of the most heartless and evil parent’s I have ever heard about.
    So truly sad what mother could sell her child for 3,000.

  4. Rosslyn Osborne says:

    Just too stunned for words! Incomprehensible!
    Desperate for money or just decided they don’t want the responsibility???
    Please find this precious child a kind and loving home.
    Thank you.
