Disturbing images emerged Tuesday of a young woman believed to be the British model who says she was abducted by a sex-slave ring — showing her lying on her back and being offered for sale.
Pinned to the woman’s pink leotard is a note reading, “Did you know chloe ayling has been kidnapped in italy and is now for sale by russian mafia ??? see attachament [sic],” according to the photos, which were e-mailed to several British newspapers, the Daily Mail said.
The paper did not give a time frame for when the photos were sent.
The e-mail described Ayling, 20, as a “beginner model” and “Chloe, born in UK, abducted in Italy and held in Italy” — and said “collection can be arranged” or that “girls can be transported globally.”
The photos surfaced with new details of what Ayling has described as her terrifying six days with online sex traffickers including one arrested suspect, Lukasz Herba.
She told police that after being handcuffed for two days in Italy, Herba, 30, a Polish national, took off her restraints and let her sleep in a double bed — next to him.
But “to be clear, he didn’t molest me sexually or ask for any sexual favors,’’ she reportedly told police. She said she was given chocolates and underwear as presents during her time in captivity.
She also has tearfully admitted to investigators that she went on a shoe-shopping extradition with Herba — and couldn’t give a “reasonable explanation” as to why, other than she feared for her life, the Mail said.
In another twist, Ayling was set to pose for topless photos as part of a shoot Tuesday, the Mail said.
