In a bizarre case with a plot straight from the movies, police are accusing wealthy Florida wife Quinn Gray of faking her abduction, and lying about being sexually assaulted during her captivity, in a scheme, cooked up with her lover Jasmin Osmanovic, to extort $50,000 from her husband Reid.
Authorities gradually became suspicious of Gray as evidence mounted that her story was not making sense:
Authorities cite, among other things, testimony from the manager of the hotel where Gray was allegedly being held saying she "didn't seem to be in distress at all," and a 90-minute audiotape they say captured the sounds of Gray and Osmanovic in the throes of passion, and then plotting the details of a fake kidnapping.
Gray's attorney claims the woman is mentally unbalanced and was taken advantage of by Osmanovic during one of her psychotic episodes. Her husband fully supports her, both standing by her version of events as well as funding her defense.
