Man Stopped For Medical Emergency, Found To Be Sex Trafficking Suspect By Police

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Howard County Police make a stop for what seemed like a medical emergency, but instead, officials say they discovered a suspect who was holding women hostage and using them as prostitutes.

Howard County Police say the suspect used drugs to control the women as he drove them across the state, and forced them into prostitution.

Police say they pulled over 29-year-old William Murray because it seemed like he was having a medical emergency, but police say there was a 34-year-old woman in his car who was a victim of human trafficking.

Investigators also believe Murray may have been trafficking as many as eight other women, and he’s accused of shopping the women around on the internet as prostitutes.
