Keith Papini Still Suspect In Sherri's Kidnapping After Lie Detector Test
I can't imagine the horror of having a family member abducted, beaten and branded, and I certainly can't fathom what it must feel like to be considered a suspect as their kidnapper.
Keith Papini — whose wife, Sherri Papini, was allegedly kidnapped on November 2 during her morning jog — is still being considered a suspect in the case.
According to the New York Post, Keith volunteered to take a lie detector test to clear his name, but authorities aren't letting him off the hook.
Tom Bosenko, Shasta County Sheriff, talked to the Post about their reasoning behind interrogating Keith in his wife's abduction case.
He said that Sherri's husband "has been cooperative and even volunteered for a polygraph, which he passed."
However, he also admitted, "We are keeping an open mind and looking at all avenues."
Keith Papini of Redding, California, made the harrowing realization that his wife went missing after he couldn't get in touch with her about picking their kids up from school on November 2.
In an effort to find his 34-year-old wife, Keith traced the steps she took during her morning run and discovered her cell phone and headphones about one mile away from their home.
Shortly after, he contacted the police and a search commenced for his wife.
On Thanksgiving, Sherri was discovered on the side of Interstate 5 in Yolo County after flagging down a motorcyclist.
She was beaten and reportedly bound with restraints by her kidnappers.
After being taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, Sherri was able to describe her kidnappers to the police.
Authorities are searching for two women: one with long, curly hair, pierced ears and thin eyebrows and an older woman with straight, black hair and gray eyebrows.
Although Sherri confirmed she was kidnapped by these women, her husband remains a suspect in the case.
It's even been reported the cell phone and headphones Keith found while searching for his wife were "planted" after being the only pieces of physical evidence in the case.
