NEW KENT COUNTY, VIRGINIA (WTVR) — A truck driver is being credited for saving a young girl from a future of sex slavery after seeing something that wasn’t right, and calling police.
Trucker Kevin Kimmel is a father and grandfather. He says several things about a motor home caught his attention.
The biggest red flag was catching a glimpse of a distraught looking girl who abruptly disappeared behind a black curtain.
Kimmel was inside his big rig, parked nearby when he noticed the suspicious RV.
“Saw what looked like a young girl looking out the window, the black drapes didn’t make it look like a families’ RV, you know,” Kimmel said to FOX40 sister station WTVR. “I saw a guy come up and knock on the door then go inside the Pilot–then quickly came back and knocked again, all of the sudden the thing was rocking and rolling.”
Kimmel, a veteran trucker, said it was a ‘no brainer’ what was going on, so he called police.
“When I saw the young girl’s face, I said that’s not going to happen, I’ve got daughters and granddaughters.”
Inside the RV, investigators found a couple from Iowa and a young woman who appeared malnourished.
Aldair Hodza and Laura Sorenson were arrested and are now charged with a federal crime of sex trafficking by force, fraud, and coercion.
