Woman killed in Portland was sex-trafficking victim

The Associated Press

PORTLAND — Police say the 24-year-old Vancouver woman who was killed last week in a Portland hotel was a victim of sex trafficking. But it’s not clear if that was directly related to her death.

The body of Ashley Renee Benson was found Friday in a stairwell at the DoubleTree hotel near the Lloyd Center shopping mall.

Police are asking anyone who knows about the case to help them find the killer.

A friend told The Oregonian newspaper that Benson leaves a young son.
