FBI agent gives talk to community on trafficking

BUTLER TWP — FBI special agent Aaron Muscatello, a former Butler resident who worked with a Detroit task force bent on corralling sex traffickers and helping victims, especially minors, shared his experiences with a Butler women’s club Monday night.

Sex trafficking is considered the one of the fastest growing criminal enterprises in the nation, he said.

“I spoke to over 500 victims while in Detroit ... If you treat them like victims and talk to them like they’re human, they would open up and help us bring (traffickers) in.”

Muscatello spoke about his career during a meeting of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs Intermediate League of Butler at Christ Community United Methodist Church. The members learned about what victims experience and how people can help.
