    Missing Pennsylvania teen feared to be sex-trafficking victim, police say


    A Pennsylvania college student who vanished nearly two months ago from a New York City motel may be a victim of sex trafficking and was allegedly assaulted by a man who could be her pimp, NYPD sources told Fox News.

    Corinna Slusser, 19, was reported missing on Sept. 20, the same day she was last seen leaving Haven Motel in Rego Park, Queens in the early morning, police said Monday. Police are investigating Slusser as a possible victim of sex trafficking, NYPD sources told Fox News on Wednesday.

    Slusser’s Facebook page showed she was studying marketing at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Relatives initially reported her missing on Sept. 12 when she didn’t show up at her grandfather’s funeral in Florida, the New York Daily News reported. Her last post on her Instagram page was Sept. 10 — a photo of herself with the location tag listed in the Bronx.

    Police Disclose New Sex Trafficking Details About Missing Teen Corinna Slusser

    A missing Pennsylvania teen who fell prey to sex traffickers has likely been handed off to pimps and ferried out of New York, reports the Daily News.

    Police say Corinna Slusser is most probably still alive, information her family has been desperate to hear since the 19-year-old went missing on Sept. 20.

    “(Detectives) believe that she is out of New York State,” a high-ranking NYPD source with knowledge of the case reportedly said, according to Daily News. “They are trying to determine her whereabouts.”

    Investigators searching for the missing teen alarmed that Slusser had been moved from where she was living in Harlem or possibly even killed after she filed assault charges against a man relatives say she called “her Daddy”. The man is believed to be a pimp who lured her to New York from her Pennsylvania hometown of Bloomsburg.

    “There is no indication she is subject to foul play,” an undisclosed source allegedly said, according to Daily News, but added that this is merely a likely scenario–far from certain.

    Members of the NYPD’s Vice Human Trafficking Team believe she has been shuttled between several different pimps since she vanished, says Daily News, adding that she had been mentioned in a number of vice investigations in recent weeks.

    Relatives of the missing girl say she left Pennsylvania in March to be with her pimp. But then in August she filed an assault complaint against the man, alleging he choked and beat her.

    The 32-year-old assailant had been arrested numerous times for promoting prostitution. Authorities are withholding his name because he may be in possession of information critical in the case.

    ‘Sex-trafficked’ missing teen’s cryptic Instagram post could help detectives find her

    A post left by Corinna shortly before her disappearance could offer clues to her location.

    The post shows a young woman smoking, with the caption “cyphin mid day road is always good for the soul [sic]”.

    Even though the picture is tagged as in the Bronx, her family have claimed that it looks as if it has been taken in South America, and that she could be being kept there against her will.

    It is believed that Ms Slusser disappeared after she reported her pimp for attempting to strangle her.

    Nineteen-year-old Corinna Slusser was last seen in the early morning hours of September 20, 2017 at the Haven Motel in Queens, New York. Two months earlier in July, just as Corinna was set to finish high school, she contacted her mom and said she had met somebody who could give her a place to stay in New York City. Corinna left for New York with just her cell phone, I.D., and the clothes on her back. Her family fears she has been entered into a sex trafficking ring against her will. The NYPD say they do not know Corinna’s whereabouts, but the investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information regarding Corinna Slusser is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). All calls are strictly confidential.

    Lots of info in this article. Timeline of events naming the attacker involved with the protection order Corinna signed.


    Then in August, according to Julie, Corinna’s mom Sabina got a letter in the mail from the New York Police Department. It was addressed to Corinna.

    “It was a copy of a letter of protection notifying her that the attacker was incarcerated,” Julie told Dateline. She said, “Sabina freaked out, called the NYPD and said, ‘What is going on?’”

    The order of protection, provided to Dateline by Julie, named 32-year-old Yhovanny Peguero as the defendant. The Manhattan District Attorney’s office provided Dateline with the complaint for Yhovanny’s corresponding arrest. It states the attack occurred on August 25 around 1:00 p.m. in Harlem, New York. He was charged with various assault and harassment charges, including assault in the third degree and criminal obstruction of breathing or blood circulation.

    The complaint states the alleged victim “was crying, shaking, and speaking at a fast pace” as she told the responding officer about the attack. The victim stated “the defendant placed his hand around [her] neck and slammed her against the wall, making it difficult for [her] to breathe and causing substantial pain to [her] neck.”

    A temporary order of protection was put in place.

    Slusser was last seen on Sept. 20 at the Haven Motel, located at 6805 Woodhaven Blvd, according to police.

    Tuorto said that her daughter’s difficulties began a year ago, when the two of them began to argue about her deteriorating school grades.

    Slusser moved out in June and lived with a friend in Hazleton, Pennsylvania for a short period.

    She then moved to New York to live the “sugar daddy lifestyle,” said Cameron Seely, a hometown friend.

    Slusser had been documenting her journey from Pennsylvania to the city via social media. She updated her Twitter bio to say that she lived in the Bronx, and her final Instagram post was tagged in that borough.

    Slusser told her mother that she had found an administrative job. Tuorto said that she urged her daughter to come home, although subject to certain conditions.

    “I told her that she was not welcome home until she got a job and went back to school,” Tuorto said. “Not once did she say she was not okay.”

    Tuorto said that she did not realize that her daughter was in danger until a Protection From Abuse order arrived for Slusser.

    The order said that a man named Yhovanny Peguero, 32, was not permitted to have contact with her. The document, dated Aug. 29, stated that Peguero had been incarcerated.

    Stunned, Tuorto contacted her daughter.

    “I called her and she said ‘Some guy bashed my head in and choked me,’” Tuorto said.

    Slusser also told her mother that the man was out on bail and was trying to find her. Tuorto later learned that her daughter had been assaulted by the same man twice. After one of the assaults, she was transported to hospital with a neck injury.

    The NYPD could not provide updates on the investigation into Corinna Slusser's disappearance, or say if there are any new leads after a year, but said the search is ongoing.

    Man arrested for allegedly forcing missing teen into prostitution

    By Tamar Lapin

    A Manhattan man was busted for allegedly forcing a Pennsylvania woman who vanished over a year ago into prostitution, authorities said Thursday.

    Ishi Woney, 23, was charged in Manhattan federal court Thursday with sex trafficking and sexually exploiting young women, including 19-year-old Corinna Slusser, who went missing in September 2017, officials said.

    Corinna, 19, of Bloomsberg, was reported missing after she failed to attend her grandfather’s funeral on September 10 of last year. She previously studied marketing at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

    Officials believe Woney transported a woman, whom documents identified as “Victim 1,” to several different states, according to the media outlet. The suspect allegedly advertised prostitution through ads purchased via the internet. More than one of the aforementioned ads highlighted Victim 1 along with Slusser.

    “As alleged, Ishi Woney engaged in a vile form of exploitation, using force and other coercion to compel young women to engage in paid sex for his enrichment. We will continue to work with the FBI and NYPD to protect prospective victims of human trafficking and arrest and prosecute their predators,” U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman said.

    Slusser moved to New York City in August 2017, according to the New York Post. After meeting an unidentified “pimp,” she was reportedly beaten up by the suspect and subsequently reported the purported assault to police.

    The New York Post, citing police, reported that “over 800 text messages” were shared between Woney and Slusser in a 10-day timeframe, “between September 10 and 20.”

    On September 20, the missing woman is believed to have met and shared a room with Woney, an aspiring rapper, along with Victim 1.

    Victim 1 apparently grew jealous of the relationship between the suspect and Slusser—who then moved to a motel in Queens on the same day. Slusser has not been since since then.

    Missing girl’s mom spends Christmas alone aching for daughter’s return

    The mother of Corinna Slusser — the missing Pennsylvania girl who was allegedly lured to the Big Apple last fall to become a prostitute — chose to spend another Christmas alone this year as she continues to ache over her daughter’s disappearance.

    “It just doesn’t feel right to celebrate when Corinna’s not here,” explained Sabina Tuorto in an interview with the Daily Mail.

    “Corinna is all I think about,” she said. “I can never feel happy. It takes every bit of my energy just to get up every day.”

    This was the second Christmas that Tuorto decided to spend by herself following her daughter’s disappearance in September 2017. She told the Daily Mail that Slusser was lured to New York by a young Manhattan man named Ishi Woney, who was charged with sex trafficking and sexual exploitation on Nov. 1. Slusser was 19 at the time and said to be one of two alleged victims.

    Is this what missing Corinna Slusser looks like now? Pennsylvania cheerleader turned sex-trafficking victim looks almost unrecognizable in newly uncovered photo, as her mother begs for help finding her


    A newly uncovered photo of sex trafficking victim Corinna Slusser shows the formerly blond, blue-eyed girl looking dramatically thinner with darker hair and eyes.

    Corinna is pictured alongside the pimp accused of trafficking her in the Instagramphoto posted last October, over a year after she disappeared from New York City.

    Corinna’s mother Sabina Tuorto told DailyMail.com that she ‘nearly fell over’ when she saw how different her daughter looked from her former self.

    Speaking from her home in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, Sabina said she fears that Corinna may have been forced into changing her appearance, and that even family members did not recognize her when they saw the photo.

    ‘But I’m her mother, I know my daughter. I know that’s my Corinna,’ she said.

    Sabina added: ‘It looks like they have dressed her down and made her look different. I don’t believe that she would have chosen to look like that. She was always so into her hair and makeup. This just doesn’t look like her.’

    Former cheerleader Corinna was just 19 years old when she vanished from New York City in September 2017. Investigators believe that she is the victim of sex trafficking, and last month they arrested a 23-year-old man in connection with the offence.

    The FBI have charged Ishi Woney, who appears to be the man in the photo with Corinna, with trafficking her and a second woman, referred to in court documents as Victim 1.

    According to the complaint against Woney, he had been using both Corinna and the second female victim in online advertisements promoting prostitution.

    Investigators say that Woney posted an online advertisement offering a 'two girl special’ along with a photo of Corinna and the other female victim.

    Sabina is now convinced that her daughter is being held against her will.

    ‘I know that if she was capable she would have called me,' she said. ‘She’s being controlled. I don’t know what they’ve done to her, whether she’s on drugs or mentally unstable or whatever. But I know she’s not herself.’
