They also said they would kidnap my son, who was six, and daughter, who was two, and chain them next to me. So I made them an offer.

They could have anything they wanted if they let my wife and children leave the country. I felt with them gone, the kidnappers would lose their leverage on me. I had only one way to survive and that was to try to buy my life by giving them what they wanted. That did not work out too well, as we now know. More than four weeks later, Schiller was still chained to the warehouse wall. He was also being routinely abused. Finally, he was told to validate one final piece of unseen paper with his signature. Schiller has since seen much of the documentation that he was forced to sign blindfolded and under duress.
However, with this final signature Marc Schiller had now become obsolete to the Sun Gym Gang who proceeded to force-feed him alcohol and sleeping pills over a number of days before stuffing him unconscious behind the wheel of his car. Lugo gunned the accelerator pedal towards a concrete post before jumping out at the last minute.

Determined to leave no loose ends, they then reversed their car back over his seemingly lifeless body. Strangely, what worked in the gang's favour was the outlandish nature of the kidnap and torture plot and the astonishing ineptitude with which its final act was carried out. One of the most striking disconnects between film and reality is that the actor Tony Shalhoub is not cast as Schiller.
Instead, he plays a character named Viktor Kershaw. Clearly, they want the audience to root for these guys in some way, so they don't lose them early on. To not see them as the animals and sociopaths that they really were. As if the story couldn't get any stranger, immediately after Schiller's extraordinary testimony against his captors — which presiding judge Alex Ferrer deemed "traumatic" just to listen to — Schiller was arrested and accused of false Medicare billing.
