Criminals claiming to have abducted the wife of a wealthy Norwegian businessman are now offering to prove she’s still alive. The family has had a new round of contact revealed this week.
Police and the family of Anne-Elisabeth Hagen are extremely careful with what information they dislose to the media. Police said earlier this week that the alleged kidnappers finally communicated via a less complicated encrypted platform, but the family is still demanding proof she’s alive and well before negotiating any ransom.
State broadcaster NRK has since reported that the kidnappers did offer a means of sending signs of life from Hagen, but hadn’t yet delivered.
