Brooke was willing to do anything to keep her family together, even if it meant selling herself online. That’s why she hooked up with “Hard Mike” on Craigslist. That’s what killed her family.
Her boyfriend Charles and their unborn baby, Audi Lynn, meant everything to Brooke. She was the kind of person who talked friends out of committing suicide. Brooke stood by them when no one else seemed to care. She was also willing to do whatever Charles wanted her to do, and do to whatever it took to raise the money needed to keep her family together.
All she asked for was $50. “Hard Mike” offered $120. How could Brooke turn that down? Besides, Charles would be there for protection. What could go wrong?
