A young, pretty California woman made national headlines recently, when she was grabbed off the street while jogging. She was held for several weeks, had her hair chopped off, she was beaten, starved and branded… and then set free. Investigators believe she may have been abducted into a sex trafficking ring. It seemed so bizarre. And then I met a woman it happened to… in Schenectady.
Here is her story.
In NewsChannel 13’s Web Exclusive, she talks a little more about her experience, including the five words that began her road to recovery, and why she was able to get out and lead a successful life when so many other young women don’t. You can also learn how to spot a potential trafficking victim, and who to contact about it.
