This mini-series about a completely crazy news story captivates Netflix subscribers

Currently at the top of Netflix's audiences, this series tells an incredible news story that captivates the streaming platform's subscribers.

After The Tinder Scammer, a new documentary inspired by an incredible but true news story is exciting Netflix subscribers. This three-episode mini-series was put online on January 17, 2024 and was a hit on the streaming platform, topping the site's series audiences in just a few days. Internet users are captivated by this crazy story told in just three episodes (and less than three hours).

In The Kidnapped Truth: From Dream to American Nightmare, Netflix takes subscribers back into the story of Aaron Quinn and Denise Huskins. In 2015, the first reported the disappearance of his girlfriend when men broke into their home and presumably kidnapped her.

In the first hours following the kidnapping, Aaron Quinn is quickly considered a potential culprit by the police... And even more so when Denise Huskins reappears two days later, to everyone's surprise. She is then accused of having orchestrated a prank to take revenge for her boyfriend's affair. Denise Huskins, however, continues to claim that she was indeed kidnapped.

The Kidnapped Truth: From the Dream to the American Nightmare is one of Netflix's many "true crime" documentary series, in which the streaming platform returns to an often sordid news story to decipher its inner workings.

So, it is likely that Aaron Quinn and Denise Huskins unfortunately suffered the unwanted consequences of David Fincher's film Gone Girl. Released a few months earlier, this feature film tells how a woman fakes her own kidnapping to frame her unfaithful husband. Through The Kidnapped Truth: From Dream to American Nightmare, it is more precisely the judicial, police and media system of the United States that is criticized, particularly while the words of women victims of abuse still remain flouted.

Eventually, the couple will end up being considered, finally, by the authorities. A suspect will be arrested, while Denise Huskins and Aaron Quinn will file a complaint against the investigators in charge of the investigation for defamation, wrongful arrest and imprisonment intentionally causing emotional distress.

Today, the couple say they are still traumatized by the tragedy they experienced in 2015. However, these ordeals will not have broken them, on the contrary. Denise Huskins and Aaron Quinn are now parents to two children. You can discover their story in the three-part miniseries available on Netflix.
