Truck Driver Notices Something Odd At A Truck Stop, Immediately Takes Action
Trucker Kevin Kimmel was just going about his business as usual when he spotted some strange behavior in an RV. He caught a glimpse of a young, distraught woman through the window. The woman disappeared behind a black curtain and Kevin’s gut reaction told him that something wasn’t right
“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,” Kevin told 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.”
Kevin described calling the police as a “no brainer.” “When I saw the young girl’s face, I said that’s not going to happen, I’ve got daughters and granddaughters,” he said.
Investigators searched the RV and found a couple and a young woman who appeared disheveled and malnourished. It turns out that Kevin had just saved an alleged sex trafficking victim from a potential lifetime of torture. What a legend.
Aldair Hodza, 36, and Laura Sorenson, 31, were arrested and charged with the sex trafficking by force, fraud and coercion.
The victim, 20, had puncture wounds on the top of her feet and numerous burns on her abdomen, groin and back. According to The Daily Mail, Hodza allegedly tortured the woman by burning her with keys heated over a stove and hammering nails into her feet. What rotten people.
The victim told police she was abducted on Christmas Eve and forced into prostitution by the couple, who was traveling from Iowa to Virginia. Sorenson and Hodza allegedly threatened to kill her family if she told anyone.
Pictures were found in the trailer of the victim naked, bound and gagged. Another photo shows an unknown person spraying Clorox bleach into an open wound on her body.
Kevin only heard what had happened to the woman when he saw it on the news. “I only learned the gruesome details through the news,” Kevin said. ‘”I’m just happy I helped her.”
Thankfully on this occasion, Kevin acting on instinct helped prevent the situation from getting even worse.
