Sherri Papini: Mystery of male DNA on California mother 'abducted by women'

  • What happened to Sherri Papini? New sketches, details released nearly a year after California mom's disappearance

Investigators also found Sherri Papini was texting with a man in MI days before her disappearance. Papini maintained she couldn't accurately describe her abductors because they kept their faces covered and spoke Spanish.

New sketches of Hispanic suspects accused of kidnapping and beating Sherri Papini are released after ELEVEN months.

The desperate 911 phone call Sherri Papini's husband made to report her missing has been released.

Nearly a year ago, 34-year-old Sherri Papini was found bruised, beaten, branded, and partially shackled by the side of Interstate 5 in Northern California after she had gone missing three weeks earlier while out jogging in her neighborhood near Redding.

The Sheriff's Office said they were unable to decipher the message because of its "obscure lettering".

Papini told investigators that she was not sexually assaulted, and "there is no physical evidence to indicate otherwise", the release states.

Detectives also found text messages sent back and forth between Papini and an unnamed man in Detroit about plans to meet up when he was in California. Her blonde hair had been cut to shoulder length and she had a "brand" burned into her right shoulder. But now, almost a year later, investigators continue to poke holes in her story.

Papini told investigators she only saw two women while she was in captivity.

Jackson acknowledged that the male DNA raised questions in the context of Papini's account of being abducted by two women, saying that "with any investigations there's always some oddities, there's always some inconsistencies". "Officials said the first is described as being 5'5" tall, with a medium build, 20 to 30 years old, coarse, curly dark hair, thin eyebrows and pierced ears.

The mother of two picked up her cellphone and ear buds before heading out for a jog in her Redding neighborhood - sometime between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on November 2, 2016.

The department said investigators collected male DNA from the clothing that victim Sherri Papini was wearing when she was found on Thanksgiving and female DNA that was discovered on Papini's body. The second was described as older, with straight black hair with some greying color and thick eyebrows.

In a statement released to the Record Searchlight Wednesday evening, Keith thanked all the people who have supported the Papini family over the previous year.

Sergeant Brian Jackson, of Shasta County Sheriff's Office, said detectives had looked in to Papini's alleged relationship with a male acquaintance from MI.

The Shasta County Sheriff's Office says it's still investigating the case, along with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. "Just on the facts that we know it doesn't seem to be a sex trafficking or a sexual abduction in nature, and that is what we are trying to figure out: What was the objective?" he says.

The Papinis have continued to cooperate in the investigation and the FBI is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the suspect's identities.

"This has been an extraordinarily hard time for our entire family", he told Record Searchlight.
