Manoucheka Fortin, 27 (pictured above), is in trouble with police after abandoning her infant in a Florida Walmart with a man she met through Facebook, reports the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
The man, Pigge Berlus, had met Fortin face to face two times before she asked for a ride to Walmart.
He agreed to take her, but informed her that he had to be at work in a few hours and Fortin promised that she would be quick.
Hours after Fortin left him with the baby — and one hour late for work — Berlus left the infant and his phone number with Walmart’s customer service.

Police found that the infant’s mother, Fortin, met Berlus through Facebook. They had only met each other face-to-face two times before the Walmart trip and they usually meet when Fortin needs a ride somewhere. The two only knew each other by their online names: Fortin went by “Ketia” and Berlus by “Jonas.”
This was the first time Berlus met the woman’s infant, the affidavit says.
