The court paperwork said Nancy told police the girl’s father “sold” the girl to “an unnamed individual” for $10,000. Nancy claims the father asked her to drive the 2-year-old girl “20 minutes from a gas station in Monroeville along U.S. Route 22.”

Nancy then told police she eventually met with a person with a silver SUV with out-of-state plates and gave the girl to that person.

According to the criminal complaint, police found no evidence yet of the mentioned SUV. Police have also not commented on the claims Nancy is making.
