Suspect In Kidnapped Model Saga Claims Victim Staged The Whole Thing

The saga of 20-year-old model Chloe Ayling has captured a ton of attention, and there may be even more twists and turns to come. She alleges that she was held against her will for six days after being lured to a fake photoshoot in Milan.

Ayling claims that she was drugged and kidnapped soon after arriving, and she was placed up for auction on the black market while she was in captivity. Her kidnapper supposedly took mercy on her after realizing that she had a two-year-old son.

She was released in front of the British consulate, and her story quickly captured worldwide attention. Ayling would soon find herself with a whole bunch of speaking gigs and a tell-all book deal, but a ton of shade has been cast on her account of things.

It was revealed that she had gone on a shoe-shopping spree during the time that she claimed she was in captivity, and the believability of her story has been called into question. New revelations are casting even more doubt on her side of the story.

As the New York Post shares, the suspect, a 30-year-old Polish national named Lukasz Herba, has indicated through his lawyer that the whole thing is a gigantic ruse. He alleges that Ayling concocted the whole thing in a bit to acquire fame.

We can definitely say mission accomplished in that regard, but whether that attention is well-warranted or not remains unclear.

Attorney Katia Kolakowska notes that her client has professed his innocence.

“He says the kidnap was a fabrication. They planned it together so she would become famous,” she said. “There is evidence the two had an existing relationship.”

According to the police report, Herba and his 36-year-old brother Michal lured Ayling to a photoshoot in Milan, but the whole thing was a set-up. They allegedly gave Ayling ketamine before transporting her to a remote cottage.

Police have also noted that she was placed up for auction on the dark web by a group known as Black Death, and starting bids were said to be $353,000. The story gets even weirder, as it’s claimed that her captors would simply let her go in front of the British consulate when they realized she was a mom.

In addition to her shoe-shopping spree, while she was allegedly being held against her will, eyebrows have been raised because Ayling admitted to sharing a bed with her captor, but she made absolutely no mention of her shopping trip. Her lawyer, Francesco Pesce, is calling poppycock on claims that the ordeal was somehow staged.

“She was subjected to a tremendous ordeal and she suffered so much,” Pesce said.

Italian investigators have also balked at claims that something stinks with the whole story, and they’re standing by the findings of their investigation.

“Chloe was only a victim: there was no plot, no contact,” a source said.

There have been more plot twists in this tale than you would find in a poorly scripted dramatic series, and all bets are off in terms of how this case is going to turn out. It sounds like there are a tremendous amount of holes in the story, and we can only hope that all ducks are placed in a row so that justice can be served in the proper fashion.
