MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WBTW) – The FBI is asking for the public’s assistance in seeking potential victims and additional information about two over-the-road truck drivers who kidnap females and demand ransom of the females for their release.
Brian T. Summerson, 25, of Dillon, was arrested in Daytona Beach, Fla., for battery causing bodily harm, false imprisonment, and tampering with a witness calling 911.
Summerson is an over-the-road trucker with a primary route of I-95 from New Jersey to Miami, as well as Chicago and Kansas City. When meeting potential victims, he tells them his name is Von or Vaughn.
The investigation is ongoing and has revealed photographs, videos and text communications of additional women on Summerson’s electronic devices and electronic accounts.
