The group operated a number of sex businesses under the guise of modeling studios, health spas, massage parlors and bikini bars all here in Houston. Under the cover of those businesses, they were preying on young women, many of them teenagers, some as young as 16. The victims were described as indentured sex slaves and were brought to Houston from Kansas, Nevada, Arizona and Florida. They lived in deplorable conditions and were routinely beaten and threatened. All of their money went to the traffickers.
