Shasta Co. Sheriff Releases Sketches of Sherri Papini's Captors

New details have emerged in the 2016 case that left a young mother branded, beaten and left on the side of the freeway after disappearing for three weeks.

The Shasta County Sheriff’s Department has released sketches of two suspects believed to be involved in Sherri Papini’s kidnapping.

She vanished last November while jogging near her home, and was found three weeks later. Papini's husband said his 34-year-old wife was covered with bruises and burns and was chained at the waist and wrists when she was found along Interstate 5 near Sacramento on Thanksgiving. 

Papini said she was held captive by two women for 22 days. The sketches released by FBI officials show two women. 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 second woman has straight black hair with some gray in it, thick eye brows, between 40 and 50 years old, and 5'7" tall.
