(KWTX) – The operation by the Bell and McLennan County sheriff’s offices that resulted in the rescue of women from being trafficked at Sunshine Massage in Killeen back in December 2019 was featured on the CNN series “This is Life” Sunday night.
The four month investigation led officers to the massage parlor and a house in the 2500 block of Bacon Road in Killeen.
The women were turned over to the Unbound organization.
“The women came to America hoping for a better life,” said Sheriff Parnell Mcnamara.
Multiple massage parlors were shutdown throughout this investigation and authorities rescued a total of 10 victims of human trafficking.
Lisa Ling’s special “This Is Life” featuring this story and our local sheriff’s agencies will air Sunday December 6 at 8 p.m. central on CNN.
The episode is called, “The Secret World of Massage Parlors.”
You can also watch the special the next day on Hulu with a premium subscription.
