Dead Baby used to Smuggle Drugs Past Customs - Internet/Facebook Rumour

21 Mar 2013 - Article No: 1696. Filed under: General | Internet/Facebook Rumour




My sister`s co-worker has a sister in Texas, who with her husband was planning a weekend trip across the Mexican border for a shopping spree.

At the last minute their baby sitter canceled, so they had to bring along their two year old son with them. They had been across the border for about an hour when the baby got free and ran around the corner. The mother went chasing, but the boy had disappeared. The mother found a police officer who told her to go to the gate and wait.

Not really understanding the instructions, she did as she was instructed. About 45 minutes later, a man approached the border carrying the boy. The mother ran to him, grateful that he had been found. When the man realized it was the boy`s mother, he dropped the boy and ran himself. The police were waiting for him and got him.

The boy, dead, in the 45 minutes he was missing, was cut open, ALL of his insides removed and his body cavity stuffed with COCAINE.

The man was going to carry him across the border as if he were asleep.

A two year old boy, dead, discarded as if he were a piece of trash for somebody`s cocaine.

If this story can get out and change one person`s mind about what drugs mean to them, We are helping. Please send this E-mail to as many people as you can, if you have a home PC send it out there too.

Lets hope and pray it changes a lot of minds. The saddest thing about the whole situation is that those persons who suffer are innocent and people we love........

God Bless you in this united effort to spread the word. You just might save a life!

In an American airport a young couple arrived to travel to Las Vegas. The couple carried some baggage and a baby swaddled tightly in a blanket. The young couple went trough the security without a problem with the woman holding the baby very close to her body.

Once the plane had boarded, the couple took their seats and waited for the airplane to take off with the rest of the passengers. When they were in the air a hostess came to ask if the baby needed anything but the couple refused and said everything would be alright.

From that moment the hostess was a little suspicious and she watched the couple during the flight. She noticed the couple didnít feed the baby, the baby didnt cry even once or make any sound at all.

When the plane landed, the police were waiting for the couple at the airport. The hostess had alerted the authorities. The police searched the couple and found that the baby was dead, itís organs had been removed and the body was packed full of illegal drugs.

These tales that outline the horrific tale of drug smugglers callously using the bodies of dead children to smuggle illegal drugs between countries have been circulating since at least the 1980s. And with dozens of variants telling the story from many different places from across the globe, this tale has well and truly become a hardened urban legend. The story asserts that drug smugglers use the ruse of a "sleeping" child to fool Customs agents and airport staff.

And despite the many variants of this story, gaining momentum every few years since the early 80s, there have been no documented cases of this ever having occurred, let alone it being a trending method of smuggling drugs.

One of the earliest variants of this tale attributes the airport to Miami. A United Press International story dating back to 1990, references the legend - in part -


For years, a bizarre tale of a cocaine-stuffed baby corpse has dogged Miami`s drug agents. Experts and investigators said the ubiquitous legend may have been inspired by a fleeting reference in a British satire, a gruesome incident from the Vietnam war, or maybe only our own worst fears.

This earlier version was slightly longer in that it also told of a child wandering off from his parents near the US-Mexico border, only to be found around 30 minutes later, "asleep" in the hands of a stranger attempting to clear US Customs.

Later variants of this tale have changed the location to the UK, New York City, Texas, Mexico, the UAE and Amsterdam. The legend has appeared several times since the 1980s, including in 2000 as false reports attributed the legend to happening in the UAE which led to a retracted story from The Post, and again in 2013 primarily through shorter social media versions.

Many, including ourselves, have tried to locate a documented case of this story as actually happening, but alas there is none. Thus it is generally not recommended to circulate this story as genuine.
