We’ve always wondered less about the people that sell babies than those that *buy* them. Who does that? How do you explain it to the neighbors?
“Hey, Linda, I see you got a new Hispanic baby there.”
“Oh, yeah, well, we, uh, found him at Wal-Mart and decided to keep him. Gotta go!”
Amado Torres, 64, of Harlingen, Texas, and his 25-year-old wife Maria Isabel Hernandez are suspected of buying more than a dozen children aged 2 or younger, officials say.
Investigator Oralia Mancha said the child trafficking ring came to light when a woman came to a police station in Reynosa on Monday to report her granddaughter missing, spotted Torres there and claimed he had the baby.
Police later arrested Torres and Hernandez after finding them with the baby at a house in nearby Rio Bravo.
