According to the criminal complaint, an undercover officer answered an ad online for Foxxy. Walker met Walker at the Comfort Suites Inn Kendall, 3901 117th Ave. Walker. Walker and Walker were then taken to Miami-Dade's special victims bureau for interviews.
Foxxy stated that the three other men were going to Arizona from Connecticut and would be coming to Miami during Super Bowl Week. She said that Walker instructed them to wear fancy clothes because he was going to take them somewhere fun once they arrived. She was at a strip club when she realized she had seen Walker smuggle cocaine. Walker also tried to get women jobs.
Without identification, the club owner wouldn't allow them to be hired. Foxxy said that Walker took Foxxy and the other women to Marshalls to purchase high-heeled shoes. Walker informed them eight days before the Super Bowl that they were short of cash.
The complaint stated that he took the three women to Ocean Drive and asked them to wear their shoes. Foxxy claimed that the shoes became too uncomfortable and that Red developed a blister on her foot which then began to bleed. Walker purchased hydrogen peroxide and bandages and gave them to the Minor Victim. She told the Minor Victim that she would clean up the blisters and then put the shoes back on so she could continue walking.
