The Florida Department of Law Enforcement arrested Patty Bigbee, 45, after investigators said she tried to sell her 11-week-old grandson for $30,000 to her biological daughter, Danielle Skiver. Authorities are now investigating whether Bigbee sold Skiver to adoptive parents 26 years ago. “Skiver and Bigbee hadn’t been in contact since 1983 but found each other on Facebook recently,” said FDLE special agent James Madden. “When Skiver told Bigbee she wanted a baby, Bigbee allegedly offered her grandson for sale.” Skiver notified authorities. The baby is in protective custody until everything is sorted out. (JW/Tampa Tribune) ...Money is thicker than blood.
