According to police in Eastman, Georgia, James and Sandra Davis came up with a novel plan to pay for the '98 Dodge minivan that wanted to purchase at Shorty's Used Cars. They would let the dealership's manager have sex with their 14-year-old daughter in lieu of payments... Police believe James Davis and his wife swapped sex with their daughter for drugs and other items as well. Police say they bought the van two years ago from 66-year-old Wayne Bearden, manager of Shorty's. But they apparently never made payments on the van—at least the monetary kind. Bearden was instead paid with sexual favors by the Davis' daughter, who would have only been 12 when the arrangement began.

And this just in...

A computer-addicted couple let their real life baby starve to death while they raised a virtual daughter online, police said today. The couple spent 12 hours a night at internet cafes while their three-month-old daughter was left home alone at their apartment in Suwon, South Korea.... Father Kim Yoo-chul, 41, and mother Choi Mi-sun, 25, called police when they returned from one overnight, 12-hour session and found their daughter dead. "They called in last September to report that they found their daughter dead after coming back home in the morning," Detective Chung Jin-Won of the Suwon Seobu Police Station said. "They had spent 12 hours, all night at a PC bang (a Korean internet café)." Officers became suspicious of how severely dehydrated the child was and have charged the couple with child abuse and neglect. An autopsy confirmed she died of malnourishment.
