Cindy Crawford extortionist ‘surrenders’

Posted on: November 19, 2009

American model Cindy Crawford and her husband Rande Gerber’s extortionist is said to have surrendered to the police following an international manhunt.

Edis Kayalar, 26, who has been accused of attempting to extort 62,500 pounds from the couple, walked into a police station in Stuttgart, south-west Germany late on November 16, reports the Daily Star.

Gerber had paid Kayalar, the acquaintance of a former nanny, 625 pounds to keep a controversial snap of their young daughter bound to a chair in revealing clothing away from the media and Internet.

But Kayalar threatened to sell the picture to the press for 312,500 pounds before he was deported to his native Germany in September this year.

He continued his threats to sell the picture earlier this month, and allegedly demanded 62,500 pounds from the couple to keep it private – prompting the model and her husband to call in the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

The model’s representatives insist the controversial photo at the centre of the extortion plot was taken by the nanny during a game of cops and robbers, without Crawford’s knowledge.

Kayalar, who had to appear before a judge on November 17, could face up to two years in prison
