Denise Huskins, Kidnapping In Vallejo? – Sketchy Details On Possible Ransom Demands….

Every parents’ nightmare regardless of victims age…. 

VALLEJO (CBS13) — A Vallejo woman may the victim of a kidnapping and may be being held for ransom.

CBS ransom suspectVallejo Police continued its search for Denise Huskins, 30, and is releasing little information about her disappearance. Police searched her boyfriend’s home on Mare Island where the alleged kidnapping took place.

She’s described as being 5’7, 150 pounds with blonde hair and blue eyes.  Her father, Mike Huskins made the trip from the Los Angeles area to Vallejo to be close to the investigation and the search for his daughter.

He’s praying for her safe return.

“I’m terrified of what’s going on with my daughter,” he said. “I’m in fear as we’re standing here about what could be happening to her.”

Her father says his daughter has no enemies.

Police and search crews from all over the area spread out over Mare Island searching for her, and have called in the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice to help.

At the same time, officers converged on the home where Denise was reportedly kidnapped. Sources say he was the one who reported the kidnapping about 12 hours after it allegedly happened on Monday morning. (read more)

    Hmmm?! Kidnapping, huh? Right out of her boyfriend’s home? Well, I have my thoughts, but I think I will keep them to myself until we know more. 🙄

        New development just a couple of hours ago. I can’t find confirmation or corroboration thus far though…

        Search for Kidnapped Vallejo Woman Paused
        (KGO/810am News) – Authorities searching for a missing Vallejo woman on Mare Island have stopped the search for now. 29-year-old Denise Huskins was allegedly kidnapped for ransom early on Monday morning from her home on Kirland Avenue.

        Over 100 teams had been conducting a ground search yesterday. Police dogs led investigators to the water near the Highway 37 bridge, and authorities used sonar to search the waters at low tide last night. So far, investigators have not found anything.

        Vallejo police say that currently, no searches are going on on the ground or in the water. A press conference is scheduled for later this afternoon where authorities will have more information.

    I have the same sinking feeling I had in Hannah Graham’s case. Since both Denise/boyfriend worked at the same hospital, it would seem unusual Denise would be a target of a kidnapping, how much money could the boyfriend possibly have? The 11 hr. delay is beyond disturbing, it’s a lot of time to alter evidence, disposal, clean up, etc., I hope that’s not the case but it’s ominous.

    Sundance, you are so right, an unimaginable nightmare for any parent, praying for Denise & her family.

    I can only imagine a kidnapping for ransom if someone owes someone drug money. My guess is that the bf killed her. Has he consented to a search of the apt? I’d be looking for blood stains and evidence of a clean up.

    They need to extract the information NOW out of that boyfriend, by any means necessary.
    12 hour delay in reporting makes it a slim chance he isn’t involved. Don’t kill him, maybe he is innocent and you can apologize later, but beat the answer out of him RIGHT NOW.
    Every second counts. I’m anti-torture but willing to suspend that for cases like this.

      “Investigators are not calling her boyfriend a suspect.” It says he reported it 12 hours after it allegedly happened. It does not say how the time of the kidnapping was determined, If it was the police that made the determination or what. The facts as delivered could be very misleading and result in coming to erroneous conclusions.

      It says they met at work so the boyfriend could have been working at the time of the kidnapping and not discovered the event until he went home. The rush to torture the boyfriend is a little over the top.

      michellec ~ you are correct. The case really stinks, not much information has been released. It’s puzzling as to why LE think it’s a kidnapping, Denise’s father hasn’t rec’d a ransom note, if the boyfriend was at home when she was abducted, did the kidnappers give him a verbal ransom demand? More questions than answers.

        So he witnessed the kidnapping and they took her away in his vehicle and he waits 12 hours to report her being kidnapped and only he says they asked for a ransom, but yet he’s not a suspect? That is crazy.

    • BertDilbert says:

      But he is not a suspect. So it that case it probably means that she was driving the boyfriends car and dropped him off at work or something. It says they met at work or were seen together. This could explain the 12 hour delay as well. There sure is a rush around here to implicate the boyfriend.

        Granted there may be way more that we don’t know, but from just what the police have released the boyfriend sounds highly suspicious.
        He witnessed her abduction at 5 a.m. from his home, taken in his car and they state a ransom demand to him at the time of her abduction and he doesn’t report it until 2 p.m.

        Now if they reveal he was held at gunpoint and/or tied up and told she would be killed if he reported it to the police then of course he would not be a suspect but a victim. However, if none of that happened, what kind of boyfriend watches his girlfriend be abducted from his home and he does nothing to help her and then waits 12 hours to report it unless he’s involved?

        It’s not a rush to implicate the boyfriend, it is from what is being reported the boyfriend sounds highly suspicious.

        He very probably is a suspect. The police do not have to arrest him for him to be a suspect. I agree that it would be crazy for anyone to try torturing him for information. Apart from the still existing possibility that he may be innocent, this could spoil the case if he were guilty. Presumably the police are keeping tabs on him while searching for the body.

    Is the boyfriend’s dad the Chief of Police, or something? Can you think of any other reason this guy’s not a suspect? Twelve hour delay, no ransom note, and a dive team already in the water … I’m pretty sure they know it wasn’t a kidnapping. Why the cover up?

  12. When Michael Franke, head of the Oregon state prison system, was just about to release what some people thought would be an explosive case of public corruption in high state government place, he was stabbed. State police almost immediately called it a “robbery gone bad,” in spite of many, many curious details, like the ones in this alleged kidnapping. A petty thief is currently serving time for the murder, thought hardly anyone who knows the case thinks he did it.
    So all of you with suspicions are probably right.

She could have some at least semi rich relative someone might know about. Just because she or her parents don’t have a ton of money doesn’t mean someone close to her doesn’t, it be nice to know how much the ransom is to help gauge.

Both Huskins/boyfriend were employed as PT’s at the same hospital. His parents could have fronted him the down payment, he financed for 30 yrs. which is plausible imo.

            I agree, without knowing how much ransom is demanded it’s hard to gauge & I agree there could be a wealthy relative on either side.

    If I had to spitball it — The Boyfriend murdered her, perhaps in “a crime of passion” initially, but he farked up bigtime and panicked then disposed of her body. Hence, the 12 hours long shock, grieving, plotting, grieving, thinking, grieving, disposing of her body, grieving, moving stuff around to set up the scene, grieving, cleaning, grieving, and then calming himself down enough before he, the sole person who was aware of her ‘kidnap’, reported the “kidnapping” that he claims he personally witnessed occur. Police are disseminating to news media that he’s not considered a suspect so he’ll hopefully stay relaxed and continue interacting with them, deeply, so they can eventually recover her body — in addition to extracting more information from him. They’ll attempt to cleverly wear him down. Give it a couple of days and his conscience, if he does actually has one, will crack and he’ll spill his guts to investigators.

    Or — she really was kidnapped and the 12 hour delay was out of concern for her safety as the kidnapper made the obligatory demand that he not contact Police and just pay the ransom, whatever that is, and he made it 12 hours until desperation forced his hand.

When LE ask the public for information, volunteers/professionals spent their time searching for an “abducted victim,” the boyfriends home was treated as a crime scene, his car was towed, then answers imo should be shared w/the frantic public concerned for her welfare.

      Divers worked into last night searching for her body, I’m glad she’s okay, but, I hope there is a believable explanation forth coming from LE.

      I followed a case of a beautiful young woman that traveled the world w/her husband for 2 years. She had a blog that she updated at all the cities/countries the couple had visited, it appeared to be a fabulous life. Then, the couple returned to Texas, were staying w/ his parents when she stated “she was going out for a run.” She never returned. National Media exposure, all the friends/family singing her praises at how she was well adjusted, happy, but was abducted. Millions of dollars spent on searches, eventually, her body turned up & she had committed suicide. The family NEVER gave any indication that she was suffering w/the transition into her “new life” of having to get a job, earn a living & the couple supporting themselves. THEN! The family ask for “privacy.”

    “Today, there is no evidence to support the claims that this was a stranger abduction or an abduction at all,” Vallejo police Lt. Kenny Park said in a statement. “Given the facts that have been presented thus far, this event appears to be an orchestrated event and not a kidnapping.”

    “Park noted that Huskins, 29, had promised to meet with Vallejo police — and that the FBI had even arranged for a jet to bring her back to Northern California for an interview. But detectives have been unable to contact Huskins, who has since retained an attorney, and police do not know her whereabouts, Park said.”
