Daddy's Girl
5 July 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode of "On The Case" concerns a crime that would have been laughable were it not so terrible. In March 1995, New York student Kimberly Antonakos was kidnapped. The motive for the crime was purely financial; her wealthy father doted on her. The kidnappers tied her to a chair in an abandoned house while they sent him a pre-recorded telephone ransom demand, which due to their stupidity, he did not receive.

If they are to be believed, which is a big if, after leaving her without food or water for three days, they returned intending to free her, but were surprised to find she was dead. They decided to torch the house in order to destroy the evidence, which they did. The autopsy revealed she had not been dead at the time.

Obviously with crooks this stupid it was not long before their litany of mistakes brought them down, but how's this for stupidity par excellence, after confessing to all this, Nicholas Libretti asked his interrogators for a subway token to get him home. Even Paula Zahn found this difficult to swallow. Libretti won't be going home until he collects his pension, if ever.

The second victim of this botched crime was Kimberly's father, who is said to have died of a broken heart.
