Three Suspects Charged In Kidnapping Of Joseph Capone & ‘Halloween: Resurrection’ Star Daisy McCrackin
On Tuesday, three suspects in California drew multiple charges in kidnapping two actors: Joseph Capone and Daisy McCrackin, the star of the 2002 horror film Halloween: Resurrection.
Keith Andre Stewart, Johntae Jones and Amber Neal allegedly entered 36-year-old actress and singer McCrackin’s home in Los Angeles on May 3 and attacked Capone before putting bags over his and McCrackin’s heads and taking the pair to Jones’ home.
The trio are also accused of coercing Capone to strip naked and keeping him in a bathtub for 30 hours without feeding him.
The perpetrators then allegedly forced McCrackin to pay a $10,000 ransom for Capone’s release by driving her to a bank. After the trio returned the actress to her home, she called the police.
The charges Stewart, Neal and Jones drew include kidnapping and assault with a firearm. Prosecutors said Neil and Jones were each being held on $1 million bail, while Stewart’s bail was set for $2 million. Should they all draw convictions, the trio could receive life-long prison sentences.
Neal was arrested by Los Angeles police at gunpoint, and the video went viral online shortly after it was posted. The footage quickly drew controversy because several officers drew their guns on her even though she walked out of her car unarmed and with her hands raised.
Who cares if she’d broken the law? She’s unarmed, facing away from them, with her hands in the air. She presents zero danger to them. There is no justification for having guns drawn.

What has our society come to? That was like 7-8 cars right there for a unarmed civilian
