NY - Craigslist Apartment Seeker Held As Sex Slave
This is a terrible story... If you read the article, it talks about the injuries she sustained.
Some of the comments say the story doesn't add up, b/c the woman returned each night for 8 days to this apartment.
Craigslist Apartment Seeker Held As Sex Slave
EAST WILLIAMSBURG, NY (WPIX) — A 27-year-old Wisconsin woman who agreed to cook and clean for a Brooklyn man in exchange for free rent, ended up being forced into sexual slavery, she told police.
On Tuesday, prosecutors said that 45-year-old John Hopkins is being held on $350,000 bail after being charged with rape, assault and unlawful imprisonment.

He then allegedly chained the woman to a radiator and proceeded to rape and abuse her for eight days. According to court records, she was able to leave the house at least once to go to her job as a chef at an Upper East Side restaurant. It is reportedly still unclear why she felt she had to return.

From the original article:
Officers responded to the apartment Saturday, and reportedly found the woman lying in the fetal position on the bed, shaking. The woman was transported to an area hospital to be treated for rectal hemorrhaging and bruising.
Who knows why someone would return to this... Long way from home... Some of the comments underneath this article suggest that this story sounds fishy...

Depending on how thouroughly the perp tortured her and denegrated her before allowing her to go to her job, he may have so decimated her psyche that she saw no other avenue but to return. Not a logical choice by any means but who among us knows if we would be able to form logical thoughts after being beaten, sodomized repeatedly, in a strange city, far from any support system we may have had. Besides, I tend to think people with a good support system to begin with do not move to NYC to be a housekeeper for some guy we just met on CraigsList. So while I don't understand her actions in returning, I will be the last to sling arrows. I hope she recovers from the emotional trauma of this.
