VANCOUVER (CP) Three U.S. residents have been charged with abducting an 11-year-
old [White] Oregon girl, plying her with drugs and forcing her to work 12-hour days as a
prostitute in Vancouver, where she earned as much as $1,000 before police intervened.
Our officers said this was the most horrific case theyd seen and the youngest victim
theyd seen, Const. Anne Drennan, spokeswoman for Vancouver police, said Monday.
She was very badly treated while on the streets.
The vice squad officer who wrote the report on the case described the girls statement
to police as the most disturbing hes taken, said Drennan.
The girl and the three adults two men and a woman met in a shopping mall in
Portland, Ore., some time in the last couple of weeks.
It was not immediately clear whether the three knew the girl before they met her in the
mall, said Drennan.
They crossed the border Wednesday and the girl began working the streets in an area
known as Vancouvers kiddie stroll soon after, said Drennan.
They said they were coming up for a wedding, said Drennan.
On Saturday afternoon, city police spotted what appeared to be a young female
working the area on the citys east side.
The girl told police she had been working the area for about four days and had
apparently been kept awake by being given acid, speed, caffeine and the popular rave
drug ecstasy.

She might have earned about $1,000, said Drennan, adding that the girl told police
she turned the money over to the three adults.
She was very frightened and had been threatened and assaulted, said Drennan, who
said the girl was given brief breaks while on the street and may have had only four
hours sleep throughout.
Drennan said it was a possibility the girl might have worked the streets before,
although she could not say for certain.
The girl, who was living in a foster home in the Portland area and was reported missing
Feb. 17, has since been returned to the Oregon city.
Charged are Jabari McCrory, 26, David Martin Walker, 25, and Mistenda Mae Carter, 24,
all of Portland. They are charged with abduction of a minor under the age of 14, living
off the avails of prostitution, sexual interference and assault.
All three have criminal records in the United States, said Drennan.
Carter had an 18-month-old baby with her when she crossed the border and Drennan
said the child was believed to be her daughter. The child was placed in the temporary
care of the B.C. Childrens Ministry.
The woman apparently also worked the street with the 11-year-old girl part of the time,
said Drennan.
McCrorys father, John McCrory, told the Vancouver Sun the two men had attended an
elite Jesuit prep school.
He said he was stunned by news of the arrest of his only child. He said the men had
been missing since at least Friday.
Drennan refused to blame officers for not noticing an 11-year-old working the streets
for four days.
If you are working the streets, tracking movements can be tough, said Drennan,
adding that the adults and the girl lived in different motels while they were here to try
to avoid detection.
Raven Bowen, director of Prostitution Alternative Counselling and Education, agreed
with Drennan.
Its difficult to spot because they dont last long on the street (before theyre picked up
by a customer), she said.

Bowen also said she was not surprised at the age of the girl, only the fact that her
pimps put her on the street where she would certainly be eventually spotted by police.
Normally, young girls are held in off-street places, trick pads, where they cant be
seen, said Bowen.
Cpl. Gerry Peters, an RCMP member and part of the Provincial Prostitution Unit, said an
11-year-old girl is an extreme example and very disturbing. He said the youngest girl
working the streets to his knowledge was 12.
In B.C. the average age of entry into prostitution is 14, he said. Its extremely rare
that a woman older than 20 would decide to work as a prostitute.
Peters was not surprised that the girl would be able to attract customers.
There seems to be a high demand for it, he said.
There is a fairly new term hebophile to describe men wanting sex from young girls,
he said.
Im told by a psychologist that a pedophile will seek the youngest child they can get
their hands on, while a hebophile prefers children in the early stages of puberty.
