Halloween: Resurrection actress endures real horror in kidnapping ordeal

Halloween: Resurrection Daisy McCrackin

This was some shocking news to come across: actress/musician Daisy McCrackin, who played the ill-fated character Donna in the 2002 HALLOWEEN sequel HALLOWEEN: RESURRECTION, recently endured real life horror when she and a friend were kidnapped and held for ransom.

Three assailants who had previously stolen McCrackin's car invaded her home in Los Angeles on May 3rd, where they pistol-whipped actor Joseph Capone. Bags were then placed over the heads of McCrackin and Capone as they were taken to a house belonging to one of the attackers.

At this new location, Capone was held naked in a bathtub for 30 hours without food, and an indictment states that things got even worse from there: apparently an unspecified body part of Capone's was maimed, his tongue, nose, ear, and lip were cut, and an eye was "put out".

Meanwhile, two of the attackers put McCrackin in her car and drove her around to several different banks, demanding a $10,000 ransom for Capone's release. When the kidnappers took McCrackin back to her home, she managed to escape and contact the police.

Keith Andre Stewart, Johntae Jones, and Amber Neal have been arrested for the crime and charged with kidnapping and assault, among other offenses. Jones and Neal are being held on $1 million bail, while bail for Stewart is set over $2 million. If convicted, the trio could end up serving life in prison.

Hopefully appropriate justice will be carried out in this case. Our thoughts are with McCrackin and Capone as they try to recover from this nightmarish situation.

Extra Tidbit: McCrackin's other genre credits include SHE RISES, HOUSE OF DEMONS, DELIRIUM, and Angel.
