Mother Under Investigation for Facebook Photo of Duct-Taped Children ‘For Sale’

According to WILX, authorities in Tennessee are investigating a woman for posting a photo of her two young children with duct tape over their hands and mouths on Facebook.

Facebook user Jaton Justsilly Jaibabi uploaded the photo, along with the caption: “Kids for sale, 45% off because they bad.”

The photo of the young children went viral, prompting Memphis Police and Tennessee Department of Children’s Services to investigate the incident.
