When a post showed up online advertising a young girl for sale, police investigated her parents. But then it turned out a much younger mastermind was behind the offer.
Local police confirmed to The Local on Monday a report by the Westfalen-Blatt that an eight-year-old girl had offered herself for sale online on shpock.com for $45,448, including a photo of herself. A man saw the advert and alerted police.
Police then searched the refugee home in Löhne, North Rhine-Westphalia, where the Lebanese girl has been living with her parents and siblings for the past two years. Officers seized cell phones and child services took the girl into custody, along with her three- and 12-year-old siblings.
When questioned by authorities, the girl said she had posted the photo and offer herself. It is not yet known why she decided to create the advert.
A police spokesperson told The Local that the mobile devices taken by police must still be analyzed to determine how and why the girl created the post. The eight-year-old reportedly had access to many Internet-enabled devices inside the family home.
The mayor of Löhne, Bernd Poggemöller, told the Westfalen-Blatt that the children are now back with their family.
Awaiting autopsy results to see if “other crimes” were committed against this little girl prior to her death…

Narayanganj, Bangladesh: Police in Narayanganj’s Rupganj upazila recovered the body of an eight-year-old girl yesterday, two days after she went missing.
Sumaiya Akhter, daughter of Wazid Miah of Sutalara area, was found dead in a pond adjacent to Sutalara Jam-e mosque in the upazila’s Tarab municipality.
Police detained the muezzin of the mosque, Jahirul Islam, in this connection and he confessed to killing Sumaiya during primary interrogation.
Ismail Hossain, officer-in-charge of Rupganj police station, said Sumaiya and several other children went to the mosque to take Arabic lessons from Jahirul on Thursday morning.
“After the lesson ended, Jahirul allowed to leave all students, except Sumaiya. He also made a loudspeaker announcement from the mosque that Sumaiya had gone missing,” he said.
The body of the minor girl bore several wounds and was sent to Narayanganj General Hospital for autopsy.
Police said Jahirul had confessed to killing Sumaiya by pushing her into the pond but more details would be revealed when he would be extensively grilled.
Sumaiya’s father filed a case with Rupganj police station after her body was recovered.
In the case statement, Wazid said attempts were made to disappear his daughter’s body after killing her.
