Kelly Johana Suárez, Top Colombian Beauty & 2013 Miss Cartagena's Contestant Arrested for Recruiting Young Boys and Girls for 'Child Prostitution Ring'
22-year-old Kelly Johana Suárez, a former contestant in the 2013 Miss Cartagena contest and a community figurehead, has been charged with human trafficking of minors, “pimping and pandering.”  She was arrested last weekend for her alleged role in a child prostitution ring aimed at foreign sex tourists.
 

The United States Immigration and Customs (ICE) led a joint operation, Cristal II, in cooperation with the Colombia’s Navy and Coast Guard to arrest Kelly Johana Suárez Martínez Moyam and four others during a party attended by 25 minors, among others, on Colombia’s Caribbean Islas de Rosario islands. An additional three were arrested in Armenia and four in Medellín for their involvement, according to ICE.


The arrests took place in a scenic archipelago with white sand beaches just a short boat ride from Cartagena, the country’s fifth largest city. Undercover agents posed as foreign sex tourists to break up the child prostitution ring purportedly run by the former Colombian beauty pageant contestant

As both a former contestant and current student studying social work at the Colegio Mayor de Bolívar, she is known as a trusted leader within her impoverished community.  Since participating in the pageant she has become a professional model and appeared in the music video for “La Luz” alongside Juanes, a 20-time Latin Grammy award winning Colombian musician who has sold over 15 million albums worldwide. She is accused of using her celebrity to recruit socially disadvantaged minors with the potential to become professional models. According to the ICE, she even attempted to sell one 11 year-old child’s virginity to a foreigner for up $1,000 at the party last weekend.
