There have been plenty of updates about the kidnapping case of Sherri Papini, as reported by the Inquisitr.
According to the Facebook page of KRCR News Channel 7, there will be a press conference about the Papini case that will be covered via “Facebook Live,” starting at 1 p.m. That 1 p.m. is presumably 1 p.m. PT, which is 4 p.m. ET. However, the KRCR website states that press conference held by the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office will happen Wednesday at 1:30 p.m., which means the press conference would begin at 4:30 p.m. ET. Update: The press conference has been changed to 1:30 p.m. PT.
Either way, the press conference plans to shed new light on new info gleaned from Sherri’s kidnapping case. The Papini case and press conference already has Facebook users wondering aloud if authorities will release sketches of the suspects involved in the kidnapping. Those that miss the “Facebook Live” press conference should still be able to view the video afterward on the Facebook video tab of the publication, such as the below video of Sherri Papini’s sister, Sheila Koester, when she spoke to the press on Friday.
In that video, Sheila read a statement from Keith and Sherri — but it’s Mr. Papini’s new letter, which detailed the horrific conditions under which Sherri was discovered, that had caused surprise on Wednesday, November 30.
The letter from Keith can be read via the below tweet that links to the Record Searchlight Redding publication, which published the full contents of Papini’s letter.
Shasta County Sheriff Tom Bosenko noted that Keith’s letter contained details of Sherri’s injuries that hadn’t been released to the public.
According to the Daily Mail, there are also questions about Sherri potentially being spotted by Christine Everson, a woman who described seeing a blond female that looked just like Papini, appearing very afraid inside a dark pickup truck with two men only two days before Sherri being tossed onto a freeway on Thanksgiving Day.
Everson said she was afraid for the woman at the Travel Center stop outside of Redding, California, when Christine saw her at approximately 7 p.m. on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving Day.
Christine said she contacted authorities after trying to communicate with the woman who looked like Sherri, who was only 15 minutes from Papini’s house at the time. The 54-year-old Everson said that the woman who looked like Sherri captured her attention because she remained in the vehicle.
“My husband, my son and I were getting ready to go out of town and were filling up the car. It was dark and I looked over and thought, ‘Why are those men going back and forth from the truck and the woman isn’t?’ You know a woman always wants to take a potty break and look what’s in the store. We were there for 20 minutes, pumping fuel and what-not and my husband was like, ‘What are you doing?’

“I saw this blond lady in a blue pick-up truck about ten yards away from where we were parked and I kind of did a double take. I said, ‘This looks like Sherri Papini here,’ so I walked over, the guys had left the car, I walked over and her window was down a little. It was just odd how the men were coming back and forth…She was blond and very pretty, and I thought it could definitely be her, she was the right age…it was a close enough resemblance that I couldn’t just drive away and have that question mark in my mind.”
Meanwhile, DailyMail.com has also claimed that the blog post being circulated with Papini’s maiden name as the author — Sherri Graeff — wasn’t written by the real Sherri, but was a prank written by Sherri’s high school enemy, as reported by Papini’s ex-husband. David Dreyfus and Papini were divorced in 2007 — and he told the publication that Sherri isn’t racist.
“That post isn’t true, it was a prank by someone at high school, she never found out who did it. Sherri isn’t racist. The crowd couldn’t have been more diverse. That’s not who Sherri is.”
