This story is a month old so I apologize for not bringing it to you sooner however I just received it myself.
Anyway, 40-year-old Silvio Raul Illescas was arrested early in March for allegedly raping three escorts that he found off of Backpage in Westchester County, New York. He is accused of taping two of the women in Greenburgh and one in Tarrytown. Police say that he raped at least one of the women at knifepoint cutting her. She sustained minor injuries as far as the knife goes. Investigators are also said to be looking at Illescas in other possible rapes as well.
I think that a lot of these scumbags pick prostitutes as their target not only because of the ease of access to them online but also they think that not only will they not report it but if they do that police won’t believe them. Thankfully it seems today that police do care. There was a time that this was not the case.
You know who doesn’t care? Backpage of course. They still go on waving the First Amendment in everybody’s face while women are being raped and killed through their website. Meanwhile they’re taking their blood money all the way to the bank without fear of any kind of legal reprisal. It’s sad that this is the world we live in and very few people seem to actually care about it.
