The 6 News investigation of “Michigan’s Hidden Secret” takes an in-depth look into the sex trafficking that’s happening right here in Lansing.

6 News anchor Lauren Thompson recently rode along with a Michigan State Police trooper who’s found himself at the forefront of these investigations as more and more cases are reported locally.
