Bradsaw was wanted by the TBI for Felony Aggravated Kidnapping and Felony Trafficking for Commercial Sex Acts stemming from the kidnapping of a 15-year-old Kentucky female who was recovered in Montgomery County, TN.

The TBI says Crystal Lynn Bradshaw,41, of Lexington faces kidnapping and sex trafficking charges.
