Su­per­model vic­tim of bizarre ex­tor­tion plot

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

LOS AN­GE­LES: Su­per­model Cindy Craw­ford has been tar­geted in a bizarre ex­tor­tion plot and po­lice are hunt­ing for a Ger­man man sus­pected of de­mand­ing cash in re­turn for com­pro­mis­ing pic­tures of Craw­ford’s young daugh­ter, re­ports said.

Court pa­pers said Craw­ford and Rande Ger­ber were the vic­tims of the $100 000 (R750 000) ex­tor­tion scheme in­volv­ing a pho­to­graph of their sev­enyear-old daugh­ter.

The photo shows the scant­ily clad child bound and gagged and was taken as part of a “cops and rob­bers” game without Craw­ford’s knowl­edge.

Po­lice are search­ing for an ac­quain­tance of the nanny. – Sapa-dpa
