JACKSONVILLE, FL – A housewife in Florida is being charged with faking her own kidnapping!
37-year-old Quinn Gray was abducted and held captive for four days over Labor Day weekend. A ransom note in her handwriting appeared on the door to her $4 million home, that read:
“There are three men holding me right now, and they want $50,000 cash. Stay at the house NO COPS! Keep your cell phone on you. Keep the kids with you. Please do this honey, please!”
However, police soon found the case to be much more complicated than a simple kidnapping. The manager of the hotel where she was eventually found and arrested at said she “didn’t seem to be in distress at all.”
Prosecutors also have a 90-minute audiotape of the sounds of Gray and her kidnapper, 25-year-old Jasmin Osmanovic, having sex, and then planning the details of her fake kidnapping!
Osmanovic told police he and Gray had met at the gas station he works at, and began a six-week relationship, which included meetings at her home. Gray even gave him a house key and the house’s security codes.
However, Gray’s lawyers are telling a different story. They state that Gray, with a long history of psychiatric problems, was taken advantage of. Their defense is that Gray, in the midst of a manic phase of her bipolar disorder, was coerced and taken advantage of by Osmanovic.
Gray is currently at a psychiatric facility in Georgia, while Osmanovic is behind bars. Her husband, Reid Gray, is standing by her side.
