NYPost A former Victoria’s Secret stock boy, miffed that his girlfriend wasn’t paying attention to him, decided to get back at her by trying to sell her 2-month-old daughter on Craigslist — and someone even called offering to buy the infant, authorities said yesterday. “Heyy I have a 2 month old baby . . . she loves to play nd have her little fun but there is only 1 problem, the doctor said that she has asthma nd if she turns a certain way she can stop breathing, she’s really getting on my nerves nd I don’t want her Please email me,” 23-year-old suspect Paul Marquez allegedly wrote in one ad posted under Craigslist’s “Baby and Kids’’ category last week. The Staten Island man — who even posted photos of the baby — was allegedly offering to sell her for $100, sources said. “Marquez had been chatting with the child’s mother online, and the two had been out a few times,” said a law-enforcement source. “He was apparently upset she wouldn’t pay him more attention and posted the two ads as revenge,” the source said, adding, “[The mom] didn’t have time for him. She was working all the time.” Marquez put his phone number on one of the two ads — posted last Monday and Tuesday — and at least one person responded, sources said. The suspect then gave the person the baby’s mom’s number. “That person then called mom and did in fact offer to buy the child,” a source said. But two stunned Craigslist shoppers who noticed the postings immediately contacted police at the new 121st Precinct on Staten Island, sources said. The NYPD’s computer-crimes unit traced the e-mail’s IP address to Marquez, who was arrested last Thursday, sources said. He was being held in lieu of $1,000 bail.
I like how Paul Marquez meets the mother online, they go out a few times, and he tries to sell her baby on Craigslist. Classy. He must have been thinking about how perfect the mother would be if it wasn’t for someone else’s baby getting all of her attention, so he decided to eliminate the problem and make a little profit in the process. Paul Marquez must either want this baby out of the picture ASAP or not understand the value of a baby if he is only asking $100. Babies have major value to loads of rich folks who cannot have one naturally and Paul Marquez could have asked for a lot more than $100 if he was going to risk placing this idiotic advertisement that had a 100% chance of getting him busted.
