The 20-year-old British model who was allegedly kidnapped to be sold as a sex slave on the dark web is now opening up about her terrifying experience.
The model, now identified as Chloe Ayling, revealed to The Sun that she was the woman who was held captive after a fake modeling job in Milan.
“I’ve been through a terrifying experience,” Ayling said. “I’ve feared for my life, second by second, minute by minute, hour by hour. I’m incredibly grateful to the Italian and UK authorities for all they have done to secure my safe release."
The cops allege that the model was assaulted and drugged by two men, stuffed in a suitcase, and then spent almost a week trapped in a small house in Turin. She was told she was going to be auctioned off if her agent did not pay a ransom.
“I have just arrived home after four weeks and haven’t had time to collect my thoughts. I am not at liberty to say anything further until I have been debriefed by the UK police.”
The sex trafficking group eventually decided to let Ayling go after they found out she has a young child.
While police are still searching for multiple suspects, they did arrest 30-year-old Polish national Lukasz Herba, the man who dropped her off. Police claim Herba is apart of an organization that auctions off women called the "Black Death Group."
We hope Ayling is okay. Our thoughts and prayers are with her!
