A photo had been mysteriously released of Crawford's young daughter gagged and tied to a chair. It was then discovered that Kayalar was using the photo to extort money from the supermodel. In a German court, Kayalar was found guilty of extortion, in addition to his blackmailing charge.

Reports claim that Crawford had paid Kayalar $1000 for the picture in 2009, but then he came back asking for $100,000.

Back in November 2009, after months on the run, Kayalar turned himself into authorities.

As for the picture, the young girl says that the photo was taken by her nanny during a "cops and robbers" game. Kayalar allegedly stole the picture from the nanny.
