Spotsylvania investigators say these 11 men thought they were talking to a 13-year-old girl."A couple were using fake pictures. They sent explicit photos and asked for photos from the "teen" as well.Then, with continued chats with what they thought was 13-year-old girl, they eventually told us their real name," says Captain Liz Scott with the Spotsylvania Sheriff's office. Investigators say the conversations quickly turned to sex, with the men agreeing to meet the minor somewhere in Spotyslvania."Nine out of the 11 actually showed up in Spotsylvania County to pick up a child," says Captain Scott.“And there are so many rent boys,” or young gay men who find sex-work opportunities on sites like Rent Boy, which was busted and shut down in 2015 by Homeland Security for facilitating prostitution. — A 13-year-old Washington girl took her own life after her father recorded a video of him punishing her, sparking a debate over public shaming videos posted online by parents. “She was a 13-year-old that made some poor choices, meaning that she didn’t have to kill herself,” Tacoma Public Information Officer Loretta Cool told the New York Daily news.
A growing number of young people are selling their bodies online to pay student loans, make the rent, or afford designer labels.On Saturday, Izabel Laxamana got out of a car and jumped from a highway overpass, landing on Interstate 5 below, police said. Police believe an unidentified third party uploaded the video, thinking it would help.She was rushed to a local hospital where she later died. While her father may have intended the video to be a personal reminder for his daughter’s eyes only, her suicide has prompted a larger debate over the public punishments that can haunt children online — years after they broke the rules.Investigators say some suspects had been charged before for crimes related to children.Its a wake-up call to parents."I think we could probably continue doing this and make 11 more arrests, and I know that doesn't sit well with parents at home," says Captain Scott.
