A Broward man and his “wife” are accused of prostituting teens for sex. Investigators with the FBI say James Mozie and Laschell Harris ran a business known as the Boom Boom Room out of their Oakland Park home.
The evidence of the rape and murder seemed overwhelming — the suspect’s DNA was found in the victim’s underwear. The victim’s blood was found on the suspect’s clothes. The suspect told police that the victim “had to die.”
The CBS4 I-Team is investigating why a DNA match message sent by the national DNA database, confirming the identity of a suspected rapist, was not received by the Miami-Dade Police Department. The suspect was able to remain free on the South Florida streets for months.
