Vindicated 'Gone Girl' accuser and her boyfriend appear holding hands to hit out at cops who dismissed them as liars, as it's ruled she WAS kidnapped 'by a Harvard academic using a water pistol'

'Gone girl' abductee Denise Huskins and boyfriend Aaron Quinn hold press conference

The FBI has made an arrest in a bizarre kidnapping that took place earlier this year in California. Denise Huskins (pictured right) was taken from her home in Vallejo on March 23 after claiming a group of individuals entered the house and tied up her boyfriend. She was then set free just a few hours later in the town she grew up in, leading many to speculate that the entire incident had been staged much like the popular novel and film Gone Girl (inset). That all changed however on June 8 when the FBI arrested Matthew Muller (left), and have now charged him with kidnapping Huskins. Huskins and her boyfriend Aaron Quinn are still dating despite the ordeal and put on a united front to criticize the police for dismissing them at a press conference on Monday night (pictured center).

Prison boss is fired as humiliated Mexico scrambles to find El Chapo: DEA reveals they warned of escape plot SIXTEEN MONTHS ago as kingpin's son posts taunting photos of his father 'enjoying freedom'

Mexico prison boss sacked as DEA search for Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman

Photographs (pictured top and bottom right) have emerged of billionaire drug-lord 'El Chapo' appearing to taunt authorities with his new-found freedom by drinking beer in public and flying inside an airplane. Sent to a blog which monitors the on-going drug war in Mexico by one of Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman's sons, the pictures were allegedly taken after his audacious escape just two days ago. If verified, the pictures would be the first of the notorious cartel leader to surface since he made his jail prison on Saturday morning from Altiplano jail and follow Twitter threats to presidential candidate Donald Trump warning him to stop his anti-Mexico rhetoric. Authorities today released a new mugshot of El Chapo, however it wasn't clear if the kingpin has since grown back his hair and mustache.

Drug king's tunnel of love: How the Viagra-guzzling most dangerous crook in the world burrowed out of jail to be reunited with his beauty queen bride

How Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman burrowed out of jail to reunite with his bride

Drug lord Joaquin Guzman (left) has staged a prison escape so humiliating to the authorities that it may yet bring the Mexican government to its knees, writes TOM LEONARD. For Guzman was the prisoner Mexico had vowed would never get away. He had already managed to get out of another of the country's maximum security prisons in 2001, and it took them 13 years to recapture him. Under his cunning and brutal leadership, the Sinaloa established itself as the first cartel to have a truly global reach, boasting distribution networks that U.S. officials say extend to the UK, France and the Netherlands. El Chapo is the world's most dangerous criminal and his disappearance - via a covert tunnel (inset) - possibly history's most damaging prison escape. Mexico's 'most secure' prison managed to keep hold of its worst criminal for just a year and a half. He could now be reunited with his beauty-queen bride Emma Coronel (right).

Giant Llamas and flames found among 24 new images at Peru's Nazca Lines

The research team of the Yamagata University Institute of Nasca discovered 24 new geoglyphs in the Nasca Region of the Peruvian South Coast during the survey conducted between December 2014 and February 2015.
