Ransom Demand for Girl, 5, Cut

November 18, 1987|United Press International

ESTEPONA, Spain — Kidnapers lowered their ransom demand to $5 million for return of the 5-year-old daughter of a Lebanese construction magnate who pleaded he could not pay $13 million demanded earlier, police said today.

A caller speaking Spanish with a British accent told the national newspaper ABC that the kidnapers of Melodie Nakachian were making a "last offer" of $5 million for her release. Four masked kidnapers snatched Melodie, the ponytailed daughter of Raymond Nakachian and South Korean rock opera singer Kimera, as she was being taken to school Nov. 9.
