The Pierce County Sheriff’s Office reported that Parker tried to lure a new mom posing as a baby photographer, before drugging her and attempting to steal her baby. The Sheriff’s Office was first made aware of the kidnapping plot when police were called by a mother who believed she was drugged by another woman.

According to KOMO-TV, the alleged victim read a statement about what happened, saying that doctors believed she had been poisoned with the date-rape drug GHB.

Court documents say that Parker asked a man she had previously dated if he could get her a sample of GHB, so that she could use it to take a baby and raise it as her own. Parker allegedly told the man that she knew where to get the baby, and referred specifically to kidnapping.
