As per a report by CTV News Toronto, Aiden Pleterski, a 23-year-old citizen of Ontario, Canada, was abducted from Toronto in December and was held captive by kidnappers who demanded a hefty ransom of at least $3 million. The victim’s father and associates confirmed the incident.
In December, an unidentified father shared a harrowing account of his son’s abduction in southern Ontario. According to the father, his son was held for three days, moved to different locations, physically assaulted, and subjected to torture. The abductors allowed him to make phone calls to specific individuals, but the father was not one of them.
Pleterski reached out to his landlord while being held captive and requested a sum of $3 million.
The landlord claimed to have received several calls from Aiden during the late hours of the night. However, it wasn’t until approximately 1:30 a.m. that the landlord decided to answer the phone.
During the conversation with the landlord, Pleterski expressed his frustration and stated that he had exhausted all of his options for assistance. The landlord shared that he was unable to provide any further help in the situation.
Pleterski is currently caught up in a bankruptcy scandal in which he was reportedly requested to invest more than $40 million, but chose to squander almost $16 million on extravagant getaways, high-end automobiles, and exclusive air travel.
According to bankruptcy trustee Rob Stelzer, as reported by CTV, Pleterski was involved in a business where he had promised to invest people’s money, but failed to follow through on that commitment.
According to Stelzer, the individual did not follow through with their promises.
Back in December, Stelzer revealed to CTV that Toronto police had informed him of Pleterski’s kidnapping. Stelzer also mentioned that Pleterski had outstanding debts with numerous individuals.
The report reveals that Pleterski’s investment was less than 2% of the total funds.
