California – The San Francisco Chronicle has stated it received an email from a woman demanding that police apologize to Denise Huskins for saying her alleged kidnapping ordeal was a hoax. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the Chronicle and another California newspaper said emails had been received from the woman suggesting Huskins’ name should be cleared in addition to messages from someone claiming to be responsible for the abduction.
The purported abduction was reported to authorities by Huskins live-in boyfriend Aaron Quinn, who said $8,500 had been demanded from the kidnappers for ransom. Attorneys for Quinn have said that he was bound and drugged in the incident.
Huskins was found safe two days after being reported missing on March 23. She claimed to have been dropped off in Huntington Beach, showing up hours prior to the ransom was requested due.
Vallejo police subsequently called the kidnapping a hoax at a news conference, and have stated they are continuing an investigation into the incident.
Chronicle Editor Audrey Cooper is quoted as stating of the emails, “They say it was a legitimate kidnapping and that they feel bad for it. Whether or not these are authentic we’ve been absolutely unable to prove. That’s really up to the FBI at this point.”
