On the run for 8 years, Dominican woman, son sought on human trafficking
NEW YORK.- The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) since last week resumed manhunt for Amparo Altagracia Montas, 52 year old Dominican and her son Eddy Vazquez charged with protecting illegal immigrants, forced prostitution and other unrelated crimes.
On Monday FBI sources told the media that Montas and her son, still on the loose after eight years, now face additional charges of fleeing to evade prosecution, by failing to appear before a Florida court after posting bond.
They are accused of trafficking with undocumented men and women who crossed the Mexican border into reach the U.S., where some were forced into prostitution at brothels controlled by Montas and Vazquez in Southwest Florida.
In many cases, the undocumented foreigners who trapped by Montas and her son’s network still had debts pending with the traffickers known as "coyotes."
