REDMOND, Wash. — Police said Thursday that a Lynnwood couple indicated to teens and women that they would be taking part in production of a documentary, but instead they were subjected to prostitution and sex trafficking throughout the country.

According to Redmond police, King County Superior Court has issued $250,000 felony arrest warrants for David DeLay, 48, for promoting prostitution and tampering with a witness and for Marysa Comer, 20, for promoting prostitution and extortion.

DeLay and Comer’s residence is in Lynnwood, where police said “much of the prostitution is known to have taken place.”

“DeLay and Comer engaged with teenage girls and women via dating websites on the Internet, indicating they wanted them to take part in a documentary about prostitution and sex trafficking,” a Redmond Police Department news release said.

“While the victims were convinced they were assisting with documentary production, they were subjected to prostitution and sex trafficking throughout the United States, primarily in Washington, Oregon and Florida.”

Three victims have come forward to Redmond Police Department, the news release said, and detectives have reason to believe there are additional victims.

Individuals are asked to contact Redmond Police at 425-556-2581 with any tips regarding DeLay or Comer’s whereabouts or additional victims.
