The controversial classified website backpage.com is now closed for business after federal authorities took down the site accused of enabling prostitution and sex trafficking.
Backpage.com let users create posts to sell items even list upcoming events or job openings but it is mostly known for prostitution among adults but also trafficking children.
That's something Channel 2 Action News reported as recently as last month in Cobb County where police found prostitutes as young as 14 years old inside a Marietta motel. Police say the teens were forced to create ads on backpage.com.
