Italian ‘Kidnappers’ Who Tied Rich British Tourist to Radiator for Eight Days Insist It Was All His Idea
TIZIANA FABI/AFP via Getty ImagesROME—When police found Patrick Sam Kourosh Demilecamps—a wealthy Briton who had been holidaying in Italy for months—tied barefoot to a radiator in an apartment in central Italy, they weren’t quite sure what to think. Police had been tipped off by Demilecamps’ father, who said he received a cryptic message from his son that he had been taken for ransom. The kidnappers wanted €7,000 (roughly $8,000), a rather paltry sum for the son of a multi-millionaire.Based on Demilcamps’ message to his dad—in which he asked his father not to notify authorities but rather to send him the cash ransom—the father was able to report to Italian authorities where to find the kidnapped Brit. When they busted into an apartment near the town of Macerata, they found Demilecamps barefoot and tied to a radiator in a room with darkened windows.They were able to quickly find the perpetrators based on neighbors’ testimony, and hauled Rubens Beliga Gnaga, 18, of Italy; Dona Conte, 22 , from Guinea, and Ahmed Rajraji, 21, from Morocco; and his girlfriend Aida Carpani, 20, from Montenegro in on kidnapping for the purpose of extortion charges.Read more at The Daily Beast.
