Daily Mail published the never-before-seen photo of Brinton at the conference.

Brinton is accused of grabbing a suitcase from the baggage carousel not belonging to them at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport on September 16.

According to a criminal complaint filed on October 26 in Minnesota state court, they were not traveling with a checked bag when they arrived.

Security footage showed Brinton taking a Vera Bradley 26-inch navy blue roller bag with belongings worth $2,325.

Weeks later, on October 9, Brinton was seen toting around the bag through Washington-Dulles International Airport on their return from Europe, leading to a call from Officer Anne Katchmark of the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport Police Department.

The victim had confirmed it was her bag after being shown a close-up picture.
