Following a call about a car with three flat tires sitting out of place, police found three men from Maine who had come to pick up a woman who had been staying in Robert Lee Horsley’s apartment.
The woman later told police that she had ended up homeless in Maine and was staying with another friend, who then connected her with Horsley.
Horsley allowed her to live in his apartment on the condition that she engage in prostitution, to which she agreed. The woman said Horsley had taken her identification and a debit card on which she received her Social Security disability payments. He had also taken her entire $1,700 stimulus check, she told police. Horsley also told her she still owed him another $1,000 for her “rent” and was angry when she called him from a hotel to tell him she felt uncomfortable with the situation.
