Lexington, Ky Escort Agency Becomes a Top National Agency...with Help From Police (Part 1)

Let's continue our investigation into the murder of Deborah Wardlaw by showing how Mike Comberger, owner of Fantasy's Escorts, became a national powerhouse among prostitutes and escort agencies with a little help from the Lexington police and former Fayette County Attorney, Margaret Kannensohn.

My investigations beginning in 1997 started pointing to a few major players in the Lexington area. The more I heard about Mike Comberger and Fantasy's enterprises the more I became concerned. I started investigating Mr. Comberger and relaying my findings to local churches, mayor's offices and Fayette County Attorney, Margaret Kannensohn. The churches were concerned and some of the mayor's offices contacted me and we discussed ways to regulate and eliminate human slavery by mean of prostitution and escort agencies. Margaret Kannensohn and Fayette County Police officers, however, were not only less helpful but became very defensive and threatening to me.

Here are links to letters that I had sent out to various sources with mixed results. You may view or even download the documents at this link.

Deborah Wardlaw was murdered during the time that I was doing these investigations and writing these letters. As you can see, I was intimately aware of the escort industry and the major players involved during that time. Deborah was no longer cooperating with the corrupt vice cops and this made her a target. Mike Comberger was not only cooperating with vice but using them. Mike had officers driving the escorts to jobs, hanging out at the agency's townhouse and even partaking of the escorts' vices.

This made Mike nearly invincible. So much so that he wore silk shirts unbuttoned with chest hair and large bawdy gold chains around his neck. He had a jeweler make a gold copy of his logo and made each girl that he considered "his" wear it on a chain that he would purchase for them. He had a penchant for driving classic Cadillacs with every detail emblazoned in gold including the wheels. This would normally make someone like him an easy target for police to spot. Mike didn't seem to worry with an off-duty officer tagging along at his side everywhere he went. I spotted Mike and a girlfriend/escort at an event at the Continental Inn once. A few minutes later an off-duty officer pressed me into a table using his body weight. He then leaned over and told me that he worked for Mike and Mike had the protection of the police department so I'd better stay away from him (Comberger). When Mike found out that I was investigating him and his relationship to the police he found me at a gas station and ran me over in front of 25 witnesses. Though I wrote many letters and filed all the paperwork, Mike Comberger was never arrested nor charged in this incident. The officers that would later threaten and possibly murder Deborah Wardlaw as well as set me up for many false arrests were in charge of this file. We'll discuss this more in detail later.

The police and County Attorney, Margaret Kannensohn, famously ran highly publicized stings on massage parlors and escort agencies over the years. However, in the coming articles I will prove that the only prostitutes busted during these 'stings' were the independent ones or the stubborn agencies that refused to pay the 'protection' money.

Below you will find my most recent e-mail regarding Fantasy's Escorts availability. The website explains that you must undergo a background check before booking and you must use a credit card. The background check is to make sure that you are not a police officer or agency that is not on the payroll. It wouldn't do any good. Whenever a good officer comes along, usually a rookie, and they start to look into corruption and ties to organized crime and prostitution they are set up and gotten rid of. An accusation alone is usually enough to destroy someone's career.

You can see this in the case of local police officer, Joshua Cromer, famous for arresting John Michael Montgomery. Mr. Cromer's interest in corruption within the ranks at the Lexington Police Department made his arrest of a celebrity a convenient way to discredit him before he could prove his suspicions. Google the events in Mr. Cromer's life after he left the force and you'll see what typically happens to anyone who becomes a target of the dark side of police politics. I know of several other stories of harassment from gangs of officers, one even leading to the suicide of the victim of the harassment, a local minister and businessman. Let's not forget what happened to Fred Mills, manager of the Kentucky Theater, when he crossed these very same people. He dared play a classic porn show at the theater. Not an average porn but one considered to be a classic of film-making in general. The city confiscated the film, Mills fought and won and the city had to return the film to the theater. Not long afterward a couple claimed to need a ride. Mills, known to be a very nice gentleman, agreed to give them a ride. They didn't get very far and the local police pulled them over. The passengers were allowed to leave but Mills was detained. A questionable search found a small amount of cocaine in the back seat. Mills was arrested and charged. As with my case, a long fight ensued eventually leading to the dismissal of all of the charges. Mills had won but his name had been slandered and the costs of this type of harassment go beyond monetary. Fred Mills, like myself, will never completely trust those who are expected to protect us from exactly the actions they engage in.

You can bet that all of the cities listed on this e-mail have officers working with Mike Comberger just as they do here in Lexington, KY.

Human slavery and government corruption go hand in hand. Both are abhorrent and dangerous and seldom exist without the cooperation of the other. You can help me and other decent citizens of America by making phone calls to organizations like your local Rape Crisis Center, HALT and your local police departments, county attorney and attorney general's offices and ask them to look into Fantasy's, Mike Comberger, and the other agencies around the country that prey on the weak and helpless among us. Demand that local police officers and vice squads allowing prostitution ads on Craigslist, in phone books and on the internet like Fantasy's to 'pay to play' be arrested for aiding and abetting a crime.

Not long after I wrote the letters linked above and began to make phone calls, record and videotape evidence of connections between escorts and the local police I was charged with running an escort agency. For two years I fought to have the case thrown out while the county attorney admitted to the judge that they had only a belief but no evidence of such. The judge allowed the case to continue until after jury selection when the county abruptly dropped the case for lack of witnesses or evidence. They had hoped that the extensive cost of their 2 year delays would force me to take a plea bargain and thus destroy any credibility that I would have in telling of my investigations. They thought wrong, however, in a sense they beat me anyway. You see, a secret of the court system is that if they can't prove you guilty, they will just destroy you financially. Either way they have taken everything from you, slandered your name and now that you are broke you will be an easier targ et for their harassment. This time, however, you must settle for a more reasonably priced attorney. And so begins the cycle of harassment.

By the time I finish this series you will see the pattern of harassment and you will see the same names appear time and again. I believe that by bringing the evidence straight to you and providing the documents to prove the connections a clear picture of Lexington's corruption will emerge. You will have no doubt who murdered Deborah Wardlaw and you will understand exactly how Mike Comberger went from wanted felon hiding in Texas to bold and brash Lexington escort agency owner to running a multi-state human trafficking crime syndicate with the help of local police.

Please follow along and help me solve the murder of Deborah Wardlaw and help stop the sad crime of human trafficking. Local governments working with prostitution is a sad secret in many communities across this country. Together we can bring attention to this and help those trapped in this abusive life.
