The Islamic State is trying to sell the headless body of American Journalist James Foley for $1 Million Dollars, according to Buzzfeed.
It was previously reported that before Foley’s death, his family was approached by the group with a $132 million ransom to secure their son’s release, but that U.S. officials made it clear that if they paid the ransom themselves it would be an act of treason.
‘It will be like a shame for the U.S. government,’ the FSA official said, of selling the body. ‘People will ask why you brought the body but you didn’t bring him when he was alive.’
‘They ask for $1 million, and they will send DNA to Turkey, but they want the money first,’ he said. ‘They will not give the DNA without the money.’
But the FSA official warned Buzzfeed against publishing the article, believing the U.S. government would shut the deal down if they found out.
