Wausau police continue to investigate prostitution activities in the city.
Police are investigating what’s called “adult escort services.” Many of them are listed at a site called Backpage.com, which has a Wausau area page. The website has legal services like rentals and items for sale, but it is commonly used to promote prostitution.
Several arrests have been made over the past four months. The most recent involves a woman named Tamara Predzik, who was advertising her “time and companionship” at the site just three days after getting out of jail on a signature bond for a prostitution charge. Police are also tracing the customers that seek these services.
