4 year old boy for sale on Craigslist; investigation closed

SPOKANE, Wash. - Investigation into a Craig's List advertisement offering a four-year-old boy for sale has been transferred to another law enforcement agency elsewhere. Deputy Damon Simmons had been investigating the matter since it was reported to the sheriff's office on March 1st

A woman perusing the site noted the ad and made an electronic copy which did not include the photo of the boy. By the time she became concerned about the ad and returned to review it, it had been flagged and removed.

Simmons utilized a series of search warrants to obtain IP Address information from various internet access companies, and said Tuesday that all leads in the matter point to another jurisdiction outside of Washington.

He provided the law enforcement agency in that jurisdiction his investigative notes and the matter continues to be reviewed to determine if the ad was a hoax or an actual offer to sell a child.
