SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A San Francisco newspaper has received a series of emails from a person claiming responsibility for a California woman’s abduction, including one demanding that police apologize to the woman for calling it a hoax.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports Tuesday the anonymous person writes that Denise Huskins’ ordeal was real and they want to clear her name.
Huskins’ boyfriend called police March 23 to report she was abducted from their San Francisco Bay Area home. Huskins turned up safe Wednesday in Huntington Beach, where she says she was dropped off.
Hours later, police said the alleged kidnapping was a hoax. They have since declined to comment.
The Los Angeles Times also has received an anonymous email.
The emails include details about the alleged kidnapping, and refer to auto thefts and burglaries that the sender says his group committed.
