On May 3, 2017, Halloween: Resurrection actress Daisy McCrackin and actor Joseph Capone were kidnapped from McCrackin’s home. Three people have now been indicted on charges of kidnapping.
Prosecutors allege that two men, Keith Stewart and Johntae Jones, pistol-whipped Capone before dragging him into their vehicle along with McCrackin and covered their heads with black canvas hoods. The two victims were then driven to Jones’ home in Compton. Capone was stripped and held naked in a bathtub for thirty hours and beaten when he attempted to protect McCrackin.
Variety reports that indictment states that the next day Jones and Amber Neil took McCrackin to two different Bank of America locations where she withdrew $100. They then forced her to write a check for $10,000 as ransom. Jones and Neil also reportedly stole her 2011 Lexus after dropping her off at home where she called the police.
According to the site, Neal was arrested Monday and is being held on $1 million bail. Her arrest was caught on camera and posted on Twitter by a witness that watched the arrest. The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed today that the woman in the video is indeed Neal.
Jones is being held on $3 million bail. Stewart is in custody with a $2 million bail. If the three are convicted they face the possibility of facing life in prison.
