A Texas woman shopping at a local Walmart last week reportedly wanted to buy something even the retail behemoth does not sell: another woman’s child. 

Rebecca Lanette Taylor, 49, of Crockett, was arrested after police say she offered a mother $500,000 to purchase her son “because she wanted him,” then continued to harass the woman and her family after her offer was summarily rejected, The Messenger of Grapeland, Texas reported. Later she left the place in a black SUV.

As per sources, Taylor was accompanied by another woman while she was dealing with the infant’s mother. Both the woman approached the mother and her two children when she was standing in the self-checkout line in the Walmart store. This incident took place on 13th January 2022.

According to police records, Taylor “began commenting on her son’s blonde hair and blue eyes. She asked how much she could purchase him for.”

The mother, who was not named, “tried to laugh this comment off, thinking Taylor was joking. Taylor told her that she had $250,000 in the car and she would pay that much for him. [The mother] told her no amount of money would do,”

“Taylor began screaming at (the mom), saying if she wouldn’t take $250,000 for him, then she would give her $500,000 because she wanted him and she was going to take him” while they were in the parking lot, according to The Messenger newspaper.

This case was filed at the Crockett Police Department by the mother of the infant immediately after it took place. She also filed an affidavit against Rebecca Lanette Taylor who tried to purchase the infant.

The evidence against Taylor was found by the officials through the surveillance video recorded in that area. The lady has been charged with a third-degree felony for trying to purchase or sell a child. Taylor was detained at the Houston County Sheriff’s Office and got released on a $50,000 bond.
