    For the purposes of this board and the newbies, I would mention that there is a local reporter from Phoenix who is interviewing local WS'ers with MJD as a byline. Many of the sleuthers have put feelers out in Milwaukee among other places for missing foster children or organizations that are familiar with the sex industry and perhaps sex trafficking. FMW is the primary contact for the LE who is pursuing the case as an active investigation, and mod Christine 2448 is handling the reporter. Absinthe has the ME report and FmW the police report. We are still waiting for any photos they have to share, specifically ones that include articles of clothing, her jewelry and her possible pair of shoes from Alonzo's car. Our stated purpose is to try and ID this child, although it is hard not to quarterback the investigation into the events....She has fingerprints in AFIS and DNA in CODiS. LE checked her prints in local adult databases, but I think we still have a question mark if they ran them out of state....Last I heard, LE thinks she is from Mojave County, so we have ads on Craigslist asking for information.

    TYVM Believe! I would like to know where the Mohave County info came from. I still think the Craigslist posting is a good idea. Maybe we should fan out to Wisconsin??? Someone, somewhere knows who this baby is!

    345 arrested, kids rescued in prostitution busts



    Hundreds of people have been arrested and 21 children rescued in what the FBI is calling a five-day roundup of networks of pimps who force children into prostitution.
    The Justice Department says it targeted 16 cities as part of its "Operation Cross Country" that caps off five years of similar stings nationwide.
    Many of the children forced into prostitution are either runaways or what authorities call "thrown-aways" kids whose families have shunned them. Officials say they are preyed upon by organized networks of pimps who lure them in with shelter or drugs, then often beat, starve or otherwise abuse them until the children agree to work the streets.
    "We together have no higher calling than to protect our children and to safeguard their innocence," FBI Director Robert Mueller said Wednesday. "Yet the sex trafficking of children remains one of the most violent and unforgivable crimes in this country."
    In all, authorities arrested 345 people including 290 adult prostitutes during the operation that ended this week. Since 2003, 308 pimps and hookers have been convicted in state and federal courts of forcing youngsters into prostitution, and 433 child victims have been rescued, Mueller said.
    The cities targeted in this week's sting are: Atlanta; Boston; Dallas; Detroit; Houston; Las Vegas; Los Angeles; Miami; Montgomery County, Md.; Oakland, Calif.; Phoenix; Reno, Nev.; Sacramento, Calif.; Tampa; Toledo, Ohio and Washington.
    The problem of child prostitution has taken on a new urgency in recent years with the growth of online networks where pimps advertise the youngsters to clients. The FBI generally investigates child prostitution cases that cross state lines.
    The cases aren't easy to convict.
    In April 2006, for example, charges against a Nevada man resulted in a hung jury after his 14-year-old victim refused to testify against him. Months later, however, a second jury found Juan Rico Doss of Reno, Nev., guilty of forcing two girls ages 14 and 16 to sell sex in Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Francisco and Oakland.
    A University of Pennsylvania study estimates nearly 300,000 children in the United States are at risk of being sexually exploited for commercial uses "most of them runaways or thrown-aways," said Ernie Allen, president of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
    "These kids are victims. This is 21st century slavery," Allen said. "They lack the ability to walk away."

    I can do a copy paste unless someone else wants to give it a go? Let me know!

    Christine, any updates on the reporter?

    I just read believe's post where it was mentioned that we are waiting for any pictures. I could just picture all of us, if and when the pics are posted, with our noses pressed to the comp screen, staring and staring for hours at these pics that we have waited so eagerly for, for such a long time.

    Just a thought - if MJD was a prostitute, why would she have been seeking employment at a strip club? I really don't think she was hooking - at least not yet. Or maybe she was just trying to get away from it. IDK - IDK - IDK!!!

    Good catch! I didn't even think of that!

    Did anyone ever figure out where the KC Slim/Kansas City Slim reference (in the police report) originated from?

    I don't think the police report explains the nickname actually. But if that is Lipsey's street name, it would imply he's from Missouri - IMO. Great, another mystery! Jeez. LE needs to have a meaningful conversation with him.

    I agree! It occured too me she was too well groomed to be a hooker. How do we know the condoms weren't planted on her, or she just didn't carry them as a safety precaution, lots of teens are sexually active. Were the condom packages tested for prints? Who's were on them? With the shoes, how do we know they were MJD's and not LDJ'S? Did they have the same shoe size? Where they right size shoes for MJD?

    Were the condoms found ON her or with her, with all the other stuff that was found in the street? they may have been Lindseys?

    I am on the fence about them-if she had them on her, then to me I think it is interesting that she did not have them in her purse if she was simply a sexually active teenager...it pushes me to the possibility of her being a prostitute. They were found on the hwyetc...

    So are you thinking she had them in her pocket? That seems kind of odd to me, but I agree that if they were found on the highway, they would have been hers. Seems to me that if she did have a purse with her, she might have had the presence of mind to grab it before she jumped - if she did jump intentionally. I wonder how well LE searched the desert in the area for other personal effects??? I've always thought that ADF & LDJ had plenty of time to toss her stuff out the window before they were stopped. If I'm not mistaken, it would be nothing but desert between those mile markers. Her purse or backpack could have been anywhere in between. The police report did not say anything about them searching for her possessions.

    Who's to say Alonzo didn't force her to take them during the argument? I'll only be convinced they were solely hers IF Alonzo's and/or LDJ's prints weren't on them. (Unless he was driving like a big shot with leather gloves)

    ETA: How long was Alonzo in AZ? Where was he from prior to being there? IIRC LDJ stated she was only in AZ a few months. Was Alonzo from AZ? Most people in the Phoenix area are from other area's. If Alonzo wasn't born in AZ we should, imo, look into where he was from and put feelers out there.
