    Sherri obviously has not gotten the help she needs if "she hopes for a break in the case."

    I can see why LE released the tipster info.

    Hello all, I am here again to say that I have changed my mind! I now find myself in agreement with everyone who thinks it was a hoax. Partly because of the man who recently came forward. But of course we still don't actually know, and maybe never will. I can live with that, and I wish Sherri and her family well.

    I think that Papini and Smollett should at least be Facebook friends since they have so much in common.

    I usually don't watch video coverage on cases but I was telling someone about this one and showed her the Dateline story. I'll say this, that Sheriff's level of professionalism did not impress me which consequently gives me less confidence in the veracity of this "leaked tip" from out of his office.

    Whatever became of the Papinis' puppinis? (This reference goes waay back to the first of this debacle.)

    What did she have to gain from the hoax though?

    If she wanted attention- she could have easily been on every talk show, had a tv movie of the week, done a book.
    No appearances, no public pleas from family to find her kidnappers, no one is saying anything.
    She and her family appear to be recluses, afraid to say or do anything - fear of the kidnappers? Or family just wanting the scrutiny to go away and hope the public forgets?

    My take has been that she was in the habit of occasionally taking off for a couple of days to spend time with <ahem> someone other than her husband. The Michigan Man and the new dude from SOCAL line up with this, as does KP immediately using the "find my phone" app, rather than calling her, texting her, calling friends and family, etc.

    KP was fed up, reported her missing, and blew up the news. The whole "super mom," "our girl," and "signature hair" was OTT and ridiculous, and perhaps could be read as snide or sarcastic.

    And ultimately, he knew she wouldn't miss Thanksgiving with her family.

    She was embarrassed and humiliated, did (or had done) just enough damage to herself to somewhat support a kidnapping story, but not so much as to have to be kept in the hospital for any length of time. And refused a rape kit.

    And now she has learned her lesson, and stays home with Keith, happily ever after.

    I think the $50k go gimme money was an unexpected plus.

    I hate that she is blamed in so many comments here. I thought there were rules about victim blaming.

    Please read the very first post in the thread, where Tricia explains why SP's account is allowed to be questioned.
