Horrific hotel killing of a tourist in New Orleans shocks city during holiday tourism season
The brutal beating death of a tourist in New Orleans earlier this month is sending chills through the city during its holiday tourism season.
A terrifying crime wave of rapists allegedly targeting women in hotel rooms is unfolding at well-known hotel chains in the U.S., a new report has found.
"I think this has been a longstanding modus operandi. I think what’s new is that survivors are willing to come forward and that the climate is changing so that perpetrators and systems are being held accountable," Emilee D. Whitehurst of the Houston Area Women’s Center told the New York Post.
The outlet found various cases, most notably in Texas, where criminals managed to get key cards to hotel rooms by allegedly lying to staff. The criminals then enter the rooms of women and rape or attempt to sexually assault them, according to the New York Post.
In one disturbing incident at a Holiday Inn Express & Suites in Gonzales, Texas, a woman allegedly woke up in her hotel room last year to a man with his pants undone.
