Listverse has a new list featuring ten noteworthy cases of missing children. One thing that struck me was, in a couple of cases, the victim was allegedly sold to a pedophile ring, presumably to be used as sex slaves.
Huh? I’ve never heard of organized rings of pedophiles holding kidnapped children prisoner. Frankly, this sounds like something from an episode of CSI or Criminal Minds. Part of me wonders if this is a modern-day version of the Satanic cults people used to worry about: a mythical evil group that is supposedly widespread, yet somehow completely escapes the notice of law enforcement.
Are there any documented cases of this sort of group being discovered?
