Black crime and Craigslist: A black creep pulled a twisted bait-and-switch on a Philadelphia teen who came to him for a job, police said
Kevin Cornish, 42, promised the 18-year-old a career in home healthcare, but when she came to his apartment to fill out an application, he forced her to sign on as an escort and strip naked for photos before he raped her, Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said. “I guess the best way to describe him is a predator,” Chitwood said. “A true predator.” Police raided Cornish’s apartment in suburban Drexel Hill and found three computers and a stack of escort contracts for 50 women — signs of a major human trafficking operation, police suspect. The 18-year-old’s mother tipped off investigators after the teen returned home from her “interview” with Cornish. The fake job agent had told the girl he’d found her a position in healthcare, but when he handed her the paperwork it was a sex-for-hire contract, listing in explicit detail the sexual acts she’d be required to perform.
