Sherri Papini was abducted nearly four weeks ago while jogging near her home in Shasta County, California. According to Tom Bosenko, the Shasta County Sheriff, the kidnappers released Sherri Papini nearly 150 miles away from her home.
The hospital at which the mother of two was treated remained undisclosed, as the perpetrators have not yet been identified. Furthermore, Tom Bosenko did not comment on her condition, saying only that she has been safely reunited with her family under close observation by the doctors.
However, according to a police recording, the 34-year-old woman appears to have been severely beaten, sustaining multiple serious injuries. Moreover, she has been “chained to something” while receiving the gruesome treatment, according to the police-dispatch conversation.
Sherri Papini was able to get away from her abductors and flag downs a passing driver on the Interstate 5, Thursday evening, November 24th. The driver transported her safely back home to her husband Keith.
Not much information was revealed on the couple, as Sheila Koester, Sherri’s sister encouraged the reunited couple to spend the first days in quiet, away from the press and police. Furthermore, during a press conference, Ms. Koester refused to comment of her sister’s disappearance or rescue mission, as well as refrained from giving any information on the ongoing police investigation.
The perpetrators are still at large and the Shasta County police department has launched a full-blown investigation following Ms. Papini’s safe return. The suspects are two women, possibly armed, driving a dark SUV.
Tom Bosenko, the Shasta County Sheriff said he was holding out some pieces of information during a press conference on Friday, November 25th, as he considered several aspects sensitive and could jeopardize the course of the criminal investigation. So far, no new information has been given to the press on the police investigation. Furthermore, the sheriff’s department declined any further comments after the press conference.
Sherri Papini was abducted from a jogging trail, near her house in Redding several weeks ago. Another fellow jogger is Sandra Oswald. The 29-year-old Redding community organizer has helped with Sherri Papini’s search following her sudden disappearing. She says that because they have the same passion she was able to empathize on a deeper level with the missing woman than most of the community when she heard the news. Moreover, now that Sherri Papini is safely reunited with her family, Sandra says she is rooting for her recovery.
