Seth Mull’s Facebook profiles (he has three of them) show a muscular man who has lived in Honolulu, Pittsburgh and the Lehigh Valley. He claims to be a personal trainer. His photos show him with a black lab, but no family. They also show someone who frequently has to change his cell phone number and who once set up a “Go Fund Me” page in Hawaii for legal fees. Bethlehem police first arrested him on October 28 on charges of raping, strangling and otherwise intimidating a female victim at the Bethlehem Holiday Inn Express hotel on Cherry Lane. When his mug shot was published, police soon discovered they may have a serial sexual predator on their hands. That’s because several victims have come forward locally, in Philadelphia and from as far away as Hawaii.

At a news conference that included DA John Morganelli, Assistant DA Laura Majewski and Bethlehem Police Chief Mark DiLuzio, authorities asked any additional victims to come forward.

According to Morganelli, Mull uses several internet sites to meet women. He portrays himself as a charming and caring person, winning a woman’s trust. But that soon changes. He forces the women in his life to take drugs until they are addicted, refers to them as his “property,” and even has even required them to sign sex slave contracts. He forces these women to participate in orgies that he films and prostitutes them.

Unlike sex traffickers who prey on undocumented aliens, Morganelli said Mull’s victims are American women, mostly in their 20s.

Chief DiLuzio said a news conference was necessary “for the safety of the community.”
