The California woman who was abducted while jogging, and then tortured for weeks before being released, has ditched her Redding home, as well as the family dogs. According to Monday’s New York Post, the victim, Sherri Papini, along with her husband Keith, packed up their two children and left their home.
According to one of the Papini’s neighbors the family may never return. The man told a Post reporter, “I don’t think they’re ever coming back here again.” According to another neighbor, the family went to live with “wealthy” relatives. A family friend was at the couple’s home on Saturday, walking their dogs.
Sherri disappeared while out on a jog on November 2 – on Thanksgiving morning she was found over 100 miles away from home on a freeway. While Papini was in captivity, she was starved, beaten and branded.
It is surmised that the family fled their home in order to escape anyone who might still be trying to harm Sherri. After her release, Sherri told the authorities that she had been abducted by two Hispanic women who were armed with a gun.
It is unclear if the family will try to reclaim their dogs – the family friend who was walking them did not provide a comment about their fate.
