Aldair Hodza & Laura Sorensen

Aldair Hodza and Laura Sorensen

Crimes: Kidnapping, Torture, Rape, Animal Abuse

Truck driver Kevin Kimmel at the very least saved a young woman from future torture and rape. IMO I think he saved her life. Kudos to Kevin Kimmel for stepping up and doing the right thing.

On January 6, 2015, Kevin Kimmel saw suspicious things happening at the Pilot gas station on Route 106 in New Kent, Virginia. Seated in his rig parked behind the Pilot station, he spotted an RV with black drapes. He saw a distressed young woman’s face peering out from behind those drapes just for an instant before she disappeared. He then saw a man knock on the door of the RV, enter, and then “all of a sudden the thing was rocking and rolling.” Without a doubt in his mind what was happening to that young woman, Kevin Kimmel called 911.

Little did the truck driver know the extent of criminal activity that was going on inside that RV. That RV was, literally, hell on wheels.

When deputies with the New Kent County Sheriff’s Office responded to the 911 call, they found 3 people in the RV — Aldair Hodza and Laura Sorensen of Clive, Iowa, and a terrified, malnourished young woman. The woman was removed from the RV for questioning. The poor thing begged them not to make her go back in the RV, and told them a tale of absolute horror.

On December 19, 2014, the young woman met up with Aldair Hodza and Laura Sorensen in Des Moines, Iowa. She knew Laura Sorensen’s sister, so she didn’t think she had anything to fear.

Laura Sorensen told her that her sister was in their RV, but that was just a ruse. Once she was inside the RV, the evil pair took her phone from her, plied her with alcohol and marijuana, then raped her. And they were by no means finished with her.

Over the next 18 days during a road trip that took them to Virginia, that poor woman was raped and tortured repeatedly. Aldair Hodza and Laura Sorensen heated keys and scissors over the stove and used those to burn her abdomen, groin and back. They butted out their cigarettes on her. Still they weren’t done.

The vicious sadistic hellbeasts whipped their victim with a rope. Worse yet, they used a hammer to drive nails into her feet. As if that wasn’t unbelievably painful enough, they sprayed bleach into her wounds.

And there was still more horror in store for the victim. The evil roadturds not only raped her, they penetrated her with various objects including a large flashlight.

Disgustingly, some of the physical and sexual abuse was witnessed by Aldair Hodza’s 8-year-old child! Their complete and bottomless depravity just blows my mind!

The victim was made to fear for her life when Aldair Hodza brought a dog into the RV and slit its throat in front of her. He threatened to kill her slowly by removing her organs one by one. I’m sure she believed him.

Both Aldair Hodza and Laura Sorensen threatened to kill their captive’s family if she didn’t cooperate fully. So cooperate she did.

Cooperate with what, you ask? Well, Aldair Hodza and Laura Sorensen had decided to make some money off of their captive. They needed money to pay for gas and food — not that they fed their victim anything. They deprived her of food and water for days on end.

The evil piles of shit hellbeasts took photos of their captive and posted prostitution ads on Craigslist.com. Sadly there were men who responded. Laura Sorensen negotiated the price and collected the money from the johns they hooked up with at truck stops and campgrounds.

So why wasn’t the victim reported missing by her friends and family? Because Aldair Hodza and Laura Sorensen forced her to make calls to reassure everyone she was fine.

If it weren’t for Kevin Kimmel taking action (bless the man), I have no doubt that the sadistic monsters Aldair Hodza and Laura Sorensen would have soon wound up with a body on their hands. Instead they found themselves arrested and charged with Abduction and Intent to Defile. Those charges grew to include Sex Trafficking by Force.

The injuries to the victim were completely consistent with the tale of horror she told. And detectives found incriminating text messages and photos on Aldair Hodza and Laura Sorensen’s cell phones. They found photos of the victim restrained and gagged, and also of Clorox bleach being sprayed into an open, bleeding wound.

On February 9, 2015, Aldair Hodza, 36, and Laura Sorensen, 31, were charged in federal court with Sex Trafficking by Force, Fraud/ or Coercion.

On May 1, 2015, the evil hellbeasts pled guilty to Interstate Transportation of a Person for Prostitution, and Sex Trafficking by Force, Fraud/ or Coercion. By pleading guilty, they avoided a trial. They also avoided charges of kidnapping which could have meant life in prison.

At their sentencing on August 17, 2015, both hellbeasts apologized. Aldair Hodza said of his crimes, “This is monstrous, horrible senseless, inexplicable, inexcusable. I offer sincere apologies. I know that doesn’t mean much because I can’t take back what happened.”

Laura Sorensen also said she was sorry. “I made a bad choice, however, I am not a bad person,” she told the court. Riiiight.

The defense attorneys told the court that both of the defendants had been abused as children.

The prosecutors and the defense attorneys recommended Aldair Hodza and Laura Sorensen receive prison terms of 35 years — 11 years more than the top end of the federal sentencing guideline range.

U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson looked at the photos of the victim’s wounds and decided that 35 years was not enough.

“Some of the things you did to this young lady are so horrifying you cannot capture it in words,” said Judge Hudson. “[The victim] may never be able to have a normal relationship because of the unusual and rare level of depravity in this case.”

The judge then sentenced Aldair Hodza to almost 42 years in prison. He sentenced Laura Sorensen to 40 years.

Kudos to Judge Hudson. I am glad and relieved he put these two dangerous individuals behind bars for a long, long time — longer even than the prosecutors asked for.

I wish for the victim all the love, support and therapy she needs to recover from her horrific ordeal. She’s a strong woman for having survived so much. She sacrificed herself to keep her family safe, and that makes her a hero in my book.

I wish all the best to Kevin Kimmel. I truly applaud the man for coming to the aid of a person in desperate need.

And to Aldair Hodza and Laura Sorensen I wish decade after decade of endless suffering. It’s what they truly have earned.

    Why can’t dentists who like to hunt chase down beasts like these? Life’s not fair. Lions deserve to live, these monsters don’t.

    Oh my goodness. Cleo, I have been coming to your site for a while, by viewing this entry made my hair stand up. I live in Virginia, in a county neighboring New Kent, where these people were caught. As soon as I read the entry to this article, I immediately had a flash back of when I saw an ad for this story coming on later that night in the news. I never watched the story, but I have no doubt that this is it. Having read damn near everything on your site, it wasn’t until this article struck literally only miles from my home that I realized, these people are actually real. I hate to sound so naive, but it just isn’t until the story hits home that one really begins to fear the stranger next door.

    Thanks, Cleo. You may already know but it’s lovely to see that Kevin Kimmel was awarded the Harriet Tubman Award from Truckers Against Trafficking this year.

    They need to be shacked down in a concrete cell with
    the locks of the cuffs welded closed. Then they should be forced to lick roaches and mice feces off of the floor.
