MANATEE — A 22-year-old Bradenton woman has been charged with trying to sell her 8-week-old son to her sister with her mother’s help, according to authorities.
Stephanie Sharrea Bigbee Davis Fleming is the third person charged in the case. Last week, Florida Department of Law Enforcement agents arrested her mother, Patty Bigbee, 45, and Lawrence Works, 42, in Holly Hill for their roles in the alleged scheme.
The investigation began in late October after Bigbee offered to sell the infant for $75,000 to another daughter she gave up for adoption 26 years ago.
That daughter, who informed authorities about the offer, lives in Tampa. After reconnecting on Facebook, she had told Bigbee that she wanted to have more children.
