Underage sex trafficking, assault and now murder – all linked to the sex trafficking and prostitution ads in the adult section of Village Voice Media’s Backpage.com.

Two men have been arrested in connection with the slayings last December of four Detroit women whose bodies were discovered in car trunks.

The killings were widely dubbed by the press as the “Backpage murders,” after three of the women placed online escort ads on the site, police said.
