Mother of Human Trafficking Suspect Speaks Out

In Forced Labor, Human Trafficking on July 8, 2013 at 1:40 pm

The F.B.I. along with Ashland police and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Ohio claims the victim and her five-year-old child were padlocked in a room they were forced to share with reptiles. They were threatened harm by pit bulls and snakes if they did not work around the house and worse.

“Suffice to say, these victims were repeatedly exposed to sub-human living conditions such as frequently being denied meals, access to bathroom visits; they were physically punished for toiletry accidents; they were threatened not only with weapons but also with vicious animals to include pit bulls and pythons,” said FBI Special Agent Eric Smith on Tuesday.

Investigators believe the victim’s government assistance checks were stolen by the suspects.

On one occasion, they smashed her hand with a rock so they could take her pain medication for themselves.
