The mother of Kara Nichols has finally admitted that the missing 19-year-old Colorado woman was involved in drugs and prostitution. This comes several weeks after initially denying that the 'aspiring model' was doing anything more than paid modeling gigs. In November, advertisements claiming to be the teen surfaced in Las Vegas, and some older ones were also dug up from Colorado and both the family and law enforcement denied that they had anything to do with the teen's lifestyle. So why is the mother finally, after at least two months, admitting that the girl's lifestyle did in fact include prostitution?
Hopefully investigators in Colorado are thoroughly investigating and not just going on what the parents say is and isn't in the missing woman's character. In fact, it's a disappointment that officials claimed the Las Vegas advertisements weren't posted by Kara. After the mother has admitted to the prostitution aspect of Kara's life it's hard to imagine what might have been overlooked.
Kara Nichols hasn't been seen since October when she was supposedly heading out of town for a modeling job. She was later seen with at least one brunette woman that has also been seen in online prostitution advertisements before vanishing. She has completely fallen out of contact with her loved ones, making it hard to speculate on a positive note about her case. Hopefully she is alive, but at this point where could she be and in what condition?
