British model Chloe Ayling was drugged and kidnapped in July 2017 in Milan to be sold in an online auction in the Middle East. Seth Daire and JJ Janflone gives their ‘hot take’ on this still unfolding story, which is still under police investigation. While assuming it’s true unless proven otherwise, they give reasons why this could be true based on existing trafficking narratives and why it could be false based on oddities with the entire story, especially with the kidnappers.
