FOX 29 Investigates: Sex Trafficking In Our Area

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

An ugly business stained with sex, drugs and violence is exploding on the Internet. It's called sex trafficking, and it happens right here in our area.

The victims of trafficking can be runaways, the homeless and young people hooked on drugs.

They're often brutally beaten, raped and held against their will all so their captors can profit from their misery.

Warning: Some of the details in this report are of a sexual nature and may be disturbing to some viewers.

FOX 29 Investigates' Jeff Cole has a startling look at what goes on right here.

    NICE EASTER WEEKEND

    The first half of the holiday weekend has been great and Easter Sunday looks just as nice. Clouds thin out late tonight with temperatures falling back to the 40s.

    Initially it'll be jacket weather early Sunday morning but plenty of sunshine will warm us into the 60s by afternoon.  High temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than Saturday.

    It will be noticeably cooler and breezy at the shore with highs in the low 50s.  Quiet conditions continue into Monday.
