The National Women’s Coalition Against Violence & Exploitation says the sites could be feeding grounds for sexual predators. “We’re up to 13 or 14 cases that we’re familiar with,” Michelle Bart, the organization’s co-founder, told the Fox News affiliate in Colorado.
Nichols and Furlong were on a site called “Model Mayhem,” while Shelling had posted a profile on a site called “Explore Talent.”
Police haven’t ruled out anything yet, but the sites appear to have nothing to do with the disappearances. Rather, it appears that a person or persons may be using the sites to find young, vulnerable women.
