Human Trafficking case in Ohio_solved iCognative


Mahoning County investigators claim that 50-year-old Ronald Hellman has been operating a human trafficking ring for the past 15 years. According to investigators, he has trafficked nearly 80 women during this period. Hellman was charged with four counts of compelling prostitution involving a minor on Monday. He is currently being held in jail on a $100,000 bond.

According to details of this case, Hellman allegedly brought women and girls to the home of 77-year-old Mr. Krusak and was receiving payments from him. Mr. Krusak was arrested two weeks earlier on prostitution and child porn charges. Hellman was arrested on Friday by U.S. Marshals at his house. The Sheriff’s Office and the Mahoning Valley Human Trafficking Task Force are working diligently to identify all of his victims.



What is modern slavery? The answer to this question is a human trafficking. The modern form of slavery can affect people of any age, gender or race. Thousands of people suffer from human trafficking all over the world every day. And, unfortunately, despite all the efforts of special organizations and agencies, the number of victims only increases.

According to official statistic, Ohio currently ranks as 4th in the US for human trafficking cases. A devastating statistic likely connected to the five major highways that pass through the state. The case of Hellman shows that the region suffers from this problem for many years and agencies need decades to reveal traffickers. That is why the question regarding improving their tools and methods is really an actual necessity today. How can law enforcement ensure that people like Ronald Hellman and Mr. Krusak see the light of justice?


The answer to the previous question is to use of modern technologies. But what kind of technologies can help in the situation with human trafficking?  iCognative technology is provided only by Brainwave Science. It can retrieve critical information related to criminal activities hidden in the brain of the perpetrators, and even witnesses, that can be key to finding missing persons and determining how they were taken, where they were kept  and who else may be involved. What is even more amazing is that even cases that have been cold for many years can be solved if the suspected perpetrator is still alive! This is because the brain retains this type of highly significant information which is brought to light by the iCognative  that collects data from the brain in order to monitor and analyze the responses.

In the Hellman’s case, investigators can use iCognative technology to tap into brain of the suspects for important details regarding human trafficking so that additional victims can be identified and details that can assist in breaking open other cases can be revealed. Details obtained during the investigation of this case such as, the names of victims, photos of victims, the addresses of places where crimes happened along with other case facts can be used as stimuli to corroborate the suspected criminal activity. These stimuli are flashed on a computer screen to suspects while the system collecting brain responses to each of those stimuli. As a result of measuring brainwaves, iCognative will determine with 99.9% accuracy the presence or absence of knowledge about criminal actions in the suspect’s brain.

iCognative by Brainwave Science was invented to protect people’s interests through the power of brainwave monitoring and analysis. With the aid of iCognative, law enforcement agencies in the US can gain critical information and help prove the suspect’s guilt, providing justice to the victims and their families. The technology can become a great instrument in the war against human trafficking not only in the US but also all over the world.
