Excerpt from Heat Street
Written by William Hicks
California mother of two Sherri Papini, who claims she was kidnapped for almost a month and brutally tortured, has returned to her Redding home.
After she was found following the kidnapping in November, she and her family left Redding to spend time away from the media.
But yesterday Papini was spotted back at her house, walking outside to fill a container with water. Reports say she looked thinner and was hiding her blonde hair. Her husband Keith claimed the kidnappers chopped off her hair in an interview with 20/20 while the woman who found Sherri on the side of the road after her kidnapping claims she still had her long hair.
Because of the strange nature of the kidnapping, the Internet is full of theories that Papini staged the entire thing for attention.
