Real-Life ‘Gone Girl’ Couple Talk About Their Trial & Upcoming Book
TYLER, TX (KLTV) – Denise Huskins and Aaron Quinn, the subjects of “Victim F: From Crime Victims to Suspects to Survivors” spoke with East Texas Now host Jeremy Butler on Friday.
The couple’s ordeal was featured on a recent episode of ABC’s “20/20” news show.
Huskins and Quinn were awakened from a deep sleep in March 2015 by gunmen who tied them up and drugged them, according to a press release.
“Warned not to call the police or Denise would be killed. Aaron agonized over what to do,” the press release said. “Eventually he trusted law enforcement and dialed 911 “But instead of looking for Denise, the police charged Aaron with her murder. Her story, they told her, was just unbelievable.”
Then, when Huskins was released alive, the police focused on her and nicknamed her the “real missing girl”.
“In ‘Victim F’ Aaron and Denise recount the horrific ordeal that cost them almost everything,” the press release said. “Like too many victims of sexual violence, they were fired, incredulous and dragged through the mud. With no one to rely on but one another, they have faced victim blame, harassment, misogyny and abuse of power that plague the criminal justice system.
The book, which was written by Nicole Weisensee Egan, is due out on Tuesday.
