Kidnapping or Adoption? Woman Offers to Buy Child for $6,000

"A wealthy woman accused of kidnapping a 7-week old baby was adopting him, her lawyer said, but police claim she took the baby after his teenage mother rejected her offer to buy him. Annette Pinkard, a 47-year-old real estate professional from the Dallas, Texas, area, is being held in Texas along with her cousin, Sylvia Nunn, 53. Authorities say the women saw Devon Calloway with his mother, Dominique Calloway, 17, at a store last month and offered to buy the child for $6,000. Calloway said that though tempted, she refused the offer, but let the women drive her home." Link to Article (last visited 6-4-06 NVS)
