Paulina Karina Diaz, a 27-year-old Colombian model and presenter, has been arrested in connection with an unsolved double kidnap.
Colombia’s special kidnap police force arrested Diaz and a man nicknamed ‘La Bruja’ (The Witch), accusing her of using her good looks to ‘lure’ men into a trap.
The charges stem from an investigation into an alleged blackmailing and kidnapping that took place in 2011. According to Colombian police, Diaz and La Bruja participated in the kidnapping of businessman Hugo Lopez Moncayo and lawyer Milton Caro Villamil in December of 2011. Police captured the pair at a bar in Cali, Colombia.
Diaz, 27, who is a present for Channel 2, also works as a model and presents the sports section on a show called Guia Magazin. Representatives for the channel released a statement claiming Diaz worked for free in an effort to increase her social media following.
Two other people have already been convicted in connection to the case and sentenced to 23 years in jail.
