California Woman, Once Called The Real Life 'Gone Girl,' Receives Apology From Police

It’s been more than six years since an armed man, wearing a scuba suit, burst into the bedroom of Aaron Quinn and his girlfriend Denise Huskins and abducted her in a crime so bizarre it had many wondering if Huskins was a real life “Gone Girl,” who had faked her own disappearance.

When Huskins resurfaced two days later in her mother’s Huntington Beach neighborhood more than 400 miles south of the crime scene, investigators questioned the couple’s story, even hinting publicly that it had been nothing more than a hoax.

“Mr. Quinn and Ms. Huskins have plundered valuable resources away from our community and taken the focus away from the true victims of our community while instilling fear among our community members. So, if anything, it is Mr. Quinn and Ms. Huskins that owe this community an apology,” Vallejo police spokesperson Lt. Kenny Park said at the time, according to SF Gate.
