How cellphone photos of a hotel room might combat sex trafficking

The photographs on a popular online site advertising “escort” services showed three young women selling their bodies, posed against floor-to-ceiling windows of the same high-rise hotel.
One of them perched provocatively atop a desk.

Hotel rooms by their very nature often feel anonymous, but the view beyond the women in the windows was unmistakable: the landmark green dome of St. Louis’ Old Courthouse adjacent to the easily identifiable facade of another downtown building.

Photographs of the hotel’s interior posted by guests on an online travel site confirmed that the style of desk on which the one young woman was posed matched the desks used inside Crowne Plaza guest rooms in St. Louis.
