    Is a trafficking ring involved in this case?

    With today's presser, the question has arisen as to whether LE is possibly looking at a trafficking ring or something of that nature.

    This thread is for discussion of trafficking rings reported in the Portland area or any other thoughts we might have regarding this possibility.

    Kimster, that's the ONE POSSIBILITY that I thought of in the other thread that would be worse than death. I pray God that he didn't suffer, that he isn't suffering, that he has not been through something as heinous as that. Death would be preferable.

    Cry.

    Three Portland teenagers are safe after they were rescued in a child "sex" trafficking ring, according to police.

    Portland Police Bureau's sex crimes unit, along with Gresham and the FBI worked collectively to get the girls rescued within one week.

    "It's all about money, money, money," Said PPB Spokesperson Mary Wheat.

    Lendrick Lee Thomas, 33, is now facing compelling prostitution and rape in the third degree charges. He was arrested at the Downtown Marriott where police conducted a sting June 25.

    Social workers tipped off police that a runaway, 14, may be prostituting herself. So police scoured exotic websites and set up a "date" with the girl.

    When Thomas drove up to the hotel driving a BMW to drop the girl off, police moved in.

    I never really thought so, but after today's presser, I'm thinking it may be.

    Very sad.

    My guess is yes. I think TH got in way over her head when she met unsavory characters that she wanted to kill Kaine. MOO.

    And now she can't say a word, because she fears for her life.

    MOO.

    I've always thought she killed him (horrible) or had him stashed somewhere(better, but he needs to come home).

    The thought of her selling him to a trafficking ring makes me sick. The thought that he could be out there somewhere being abused daily makes me want to scream...WHY????
    I know it happens everyday. It's so cruel and inhumane.

    Oh gosh! How horrible. Prayers for Kyron.

    I've always prayed he was alive. But, if he has been sold, he is suffering everyday. Too much to comprehend. How must his parents feel???

    I still think there could be a connection between her online activities and Kyron's disappearance, whether or not she was directly involved or even knew of the person who abducted Kyron.

    And ugh... from the CAT link above...

    In many of the cases investigated, detectives discover additional child abuse crimes against other victims, which create the need for more investigative resources over a greater period of time.

    It's times like this I believe in washboarding. She needs to tell the truth about what she did to Kyron!!!! No matter what it takes to get it out of her.
