    Any hinting or cutesy way of intimating you feel this is a hoax and you will be timed out.

    Thank you,

    yes, you just cannot post if the theory involves pointing the finger at specific people, particularly the victim or the family.

    As a Redding Native, I'm not surprised that anything involving pot harvesting has came to light here as a potential link to the case.

    I'm just speculating here, and have no inside information regarding the Papini's, however, I have seen and know people that grow pot in that area. It's EXTREMELY common, and is seemingly done by people you'd never expect.

    Could the Papini's be growers (complete speculation, pls no TO) and have "low-life's" or "sub-humans" that they are in contact with that would have a reason to send a "message"?

    This is not me victim blaming at all, just throwing out my two cents.

    Word. That is why I have decided to ignore anything in this case that does not come directly out of LE's mouth. Which is:

    1. The sheriff stated he has no reason to disbelieve Sherri's story.
    2. Two female hispanic abductors, vague description, dark SUV involved, abducted Sherri on Nov 2.
    3. Sherri was released by her abductors Thanksgiving morning near I-5, taken to hospital, treated and released.
    4. KP took a poly and passed.
    5. LE has no information as to whether this was a random crime or if Sherri was a specific target.

    Everything else is just speculation, theorizing, 2nd hand information, rumor, opinion, projection and media competition for ratings.

    I'm part of a Facebook group where this case is also being discussed and wild theories abound! But that's ok, because it's a free for all and anyone can say what they want. I raise theories about the case and people involved. But here, it's different. Here is all about sticking to the facts AT THAT TIME.

    If something has been ruled out currently, it doesn't mean it won't always be ruled out. But it does mean we shouldn't doubt that it's currently ruled out.

    Totally agree with how it's done here. As much as I enjoy the free for all group too, you do get some crrrazy theories actually gaining some flight over there!

    Could they have abducted her to try and get her pregnant for blonde haired blue eyed babies to sell? Those children would have a massive profit in the black market "adoption" world. Has she undergone somekind of long term contrceptive because she already has 2 kids and they realized this and tortured/dumped her as a way of getting back at her for wasting their time?

    Total strange theory and probably not likely but just thought if some part of it may be likely to throw it out there.

    People should be scared. Regardless of who did this or what the motives behind it might be, there are AT LEAST TWO deranged lunatics roaming around, who seem to enjoy torture as a hobby. The injuries described are horrifying. I don't know why they let her go but she is very lucky to be alive. Redding isn't the only pretty town with dirty little secrets ... evil is right in our own backyards.

    Maybe if LE told HOW she was taken people would be even more scared and LE is avoiding causing a panic? Maybe she was surprised/grabbed from behind and there was NOTHING she could have done to prevent being taken? At the very least, we know there was a gun involved and she is a 5 foot tall, 100 pound woman--not a lot she could do to fight back/run if they pulled a gun. And, also, maybe they don't want to focus on that because of the victim shaming and victim blaming that would inevitably follow--thousands of people asking, "why didn't she do this?" Or saying "I would have done this instead" would not make the public any safer. JMO.

    Besides all of the above, LE, along with the press, HAVE put out warnings to take safety precautions-- avoid jogging alone, be aware of your surroundings, etc.

    It is off limits, but people are still discussing it. I agree it needs to be off limits!

    "Everything has come full circle. Mainstream Media (MSM) is now reporting on what is being said on the Internet. We used to say that if MSM discussed a topic then Websleuths members could discuss a topic. Not in this case. Just because theories from the Internet are being reported by MSM does not mean we can bring theories to Websleuths which leads me to the Skinzheads post or whatever it's called.

    Until it is proven that Sherri wrote this post it is off limits. Her husband said she did not write the post. Law Enforcement has not said Sherri wrote the post but they are investigating. Until we hear for sure this part of the discussion is off limits. "

    I get the question. But there is nothing to suggest they had any connection with growing mj. Zip. Nada. Unless that changes, I see no reason to pursue that line of thought. But that's just me. ;)

    I say YES. Either that or they were told/asked to hold the information back by LE.

    I can't think of any other reason

    Probably LE, so as not to hurt the investigation. Maybe they are trying to link it to other abductions with the same MO.

    Many people with Hispanic last names don't speak a word of Spanish. Conversely there are those, like me, who have an "English" last name and speak Spanish fluently (Mother Spanish, father American).

    I hope you're not suggesting they were involved in a hoax. As for Keith treading carefully, remember the sheriff did publicly take him to task for talking about the branding. So, it's possible he's hesitant about revealing certain facts. It's not only possible, it seems probable.

    *5(b) the Sheriff stated that the public should be cautious

    *At the last presser, heard it with my own ears

    KP probably thought she was abducted right away because human trafficking is high in that area.

    Why did KP take photos of the phone to preserve the evidence? Did he pick up the phone and root through it? Maybe he foud something in the phone and relayed it to the family? Maybe thats why they were all reaching out for her to be brought back home from day 1. Her sister and KP's both plea for her to be brought back but dont look overly upset... odd!

    Presumably, people are generally "cautious" when it comes to personal safety, at least to some degree. But this was a rare, violent crime with some sort of specific luring or ruse to abduct the victim. People need to know. Jmojmojmojmojmo

    That was the first thing my husband suggested, when I was telling him about the case. He is a military officer & has experience and training in watching for suspicious situations. When I said that Sherri could only see part of their faces, he immediately asked if that was a possibility.
