LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Police Department’s Operations Valley Bureau-Human Trafficking Task Force is seeking additional victims of human trafficking.

On February 3, 2020, Operations Valley Bureau-Human Trafficking Task Force arrested Christopher Moss, 33-year-old from Dallas, Texas for Human Trafficking.

In February North Hollywood Area Officers responded to a domestic violence radio call. During the officers investigation it was discovered that the victim had been engaging in commercial sex acts at the demand of her trafficker.


Operations Valley Bureau Human Trafficking Task Force assumed the investigation and immediately went into action and was able to provide the victim with advocate services.

This investigation has lead us to working in collaboration with other cities and states who may have an investigative interest in this case.

As the officers continued the human trafficking investigation it was obvious more victims were involved and needed to be located. We are asking for the public’s assistance in locating any additional victims. Detectives believe there are additional victims who have not filed police reports.

The above photograph is a tattoo that was branded onto one of the victims. Often times a human trafficker will brand their victims as a sign of ownership in the pimp culture.

The crown represents royalty and when the victim has earned it, the human trafficker will brand them. This specific tattoo also had the letter ‘D’ and inside is the $ symbol.

Christopher Moss moniker is “Daddy Cash” and the ‘D’ represents Daddy and the $ symbol represents cash.

It is important to note that any victim that comes forward, will not be in any kind of trouble. We have resources available to victims that come forward.

Anyone with additional information regarding Christopher Moss, or anyone who may have been a victim are asked to call Operations Valley Bureau-Human Trafficking Task Force, Detective Cynthia Gonzales at 818-644-8091.

Court TV to Cover Trial of Robert Durst for Murder of Susan Berman

Published

on

LOS ANGELES — Court TV will provide coverage of real estate heir and subject of the HBO Docu-series The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst. Durst’s murder trial in Los Angeles, starting March 2.

Jury selection is complete, and the trial has begun. Court TV will air opening statements, closing arguments and the verdict, with on-going reports of the camera-less testimony and the trial’s most significant events.

Durst, 76, is accused of shooting and killing his longtime confident Susan Berman in her Beverly Hills home in 2000 to silence her from telling investigators what she knew about the 1982 disappearance of his wife, Kathleen, in New York. Making this case more sensational is that the defendant is the subject of the HBO documentary The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst.

In the last scene of The Jinx, Durst went to a bathroom and not realizing his microphone was still on said, “There it is. You’re caught. What the hell did I do? Killed them all, of course.” After The Jinx aired, the investigation into Berman’s death gained momentum as the filmmakers unearthed a letter Durst had written to Berman. The envelope had nearly identical handwriting to a note sent anonymously to police directing them to Berman’s lifeless body. 

Durst has pleaded not guilty to the murder charge.

The unusual case has already been called “fascinating” by Superior Court Judge Mark Windham, the judge who will preside over the trial.  Judge Windham has told prospective jurors, “If you’re going to have one trial where you’re going to be a juror, this is the trial. These are the best lawyers I’ve ever seen…. You’re never going to have an experience like this.”

This will be the second time Durst has stood trial for murder. He was acquitted of the murder and dismemberment of neighbor Morris Blake in Texas in 2003 in a trial covered by the original Court TV. The former Galveston County Judge who presided over that trial, Susan Criss, will appear on Court TV live this afternoon to be interviewed by Seema Iyer.
