Even Kidnappers Need a Sitter Sometimes

I read an article about a newborn kidnapped from a hospital in Texas on Saturday morning, who was found today, when the kidnapper dropped the baby off at someone's house to be looked after. Did the kidnapper have a date? Or maybe had to run to the grocery store and didn't want to bring a baby with her? An exercise class at the gym? I'm just thinking of all the reasons I drop my kid off at a sitter's house. But if having a baby was going to be so inconvenient to the woman's schedule, maybe she'd just wait and kidnap someone later, after her appointment. Maybe it was a job she had to get to, after all, they don't offer maternity leave to kidnappers.
