Young women and men, either struggling to pay bills or trying to launch careers, are turning to social media sites.
ModelMayhem.com is not new. In fact, it has more then 760,000 active users. Hundreds of those are in Jefferson City, Columbia and across Mid-Missouri.
However, the website that promises to connect aspiring models with the people who can help rocket them to fame is now being investigated for its role in the disappearance, rape and trafficking of more than a dozen women across the country.
The site is not on the radar of most investigators and it’s certainly not the only website being accused of fostering phony and dangerous relationships.
