    Or it had happened before and he knew if he gave a specific date using the kids as bait, she might come home.

    Her contact with some unnamed man prior to her disappearance may factor into this.

    For some people, especially those who might be mentally unstable-

    1. Getting sympathy from those around her for what she went through (sort of like Munchausen people).
    2. Getting back at her husband for something and punishing him.
    3. Reward money.
    4. Coming up with a story to hide an affair.
    5. Something that was part of an elaborate cuckolding fantasy that went wrong.

    Who knows? Could be a combo.

    Maybe once it became bigger and clearly improbable to the majority of the general public, she decided she better keep quiet. She might have had some legal advice long the way as well. Anything she says on the news could be used against her.

    But yeah, one would think that a person unstable enough to pull something like this for attention would not be able to stop talking.

    Do we know she was actually 87 pounds or is this more hyperbole from her husband? Because he also said they cut off all her hair and she had a cute bob a couple weeks later.

    In any event, I remember a poster stating they had perused her Pinterest back when it was still up and something to the effect of, as a result, they had the sense that SP had an eating disorder and was so into appearance that she seemed unstable or something. That was the inference I got. The poster felt sorry for her.

    This was before SP was miraculously released alive.

    I was a bit offended by that because I felt the insinuation was that she had possibly made this up. But SP had not yet been found and despite the strange facts and her husband’s somewhat bizarre interview, I felt she could have been abducted and killed and that making inferences and insinuations about a victim was wrong.

    But I think I was the one who was wrong and that poster had a keen eye and noticed some interesting things that could explain what happened. And also, her weight.

    I voiced my feelings about being offended for the victim and as a result, the poster didn’t bring it up again. I wish I hadn’t been so closed minded at the time. That person had interesting insights.

    I'm pretty sure all of the physical details came from the husband. The info released by LE was IIRC very general.

    ETA. If she were 87 pounds after supposedly being starved, I would think she would have been kept in the hospital overnight.

    Not even 24 hours.
    Basically observed and released as fine and healthy.
    Maybe because the hospital observed none of these things ?
    We have only the husband's word for all of her horrific 'injuries'.
    Imo.

    Agreed.
    Also, didn't the hospital have some questions about where she was and what exactly happened ?

    Considering their haul from the crowd funding, maybe they just took the money and ran.

    But it feels too simplistic.
    There are other ways of making quick cash.

    Query and speculation : Was there ever any instances of odd or unpredictable behavior from Sherri in the past ?
    In high school ?
    Or even before ?
    Mental issues are a real thing and very sad.

    Most of the time those people need sympathetic and professional help; and more counseling than you'd get from a concerned friend-- just saying.
    Some just want attention that they're not getting at home.

    Or was it just needing to be with the unnamed friend ?
    Was it only that and nothing else ?
    MOO

    Her family had a history of making 9-1-1 calls about SP.

    911 call logs shed light on 'Super Mom' Sherri Papini's past

    A call log from the Shasta County Sheriff's Office dated Dec. 17, 2003, indicates that Papini's mother, Loretta Graeff, alleged that her then-21-year-old daughter had been harming herself and blaming it on her.

    On Oct. 1, 2000, Papini's sister, Sheila Graeff, alleged that Sherri may have kicked in her back door but was unsure if anyone actually got into the house because nothing was missing.

    Then later that day, Papini's father, Richard Graeff, alleged that Papini vandalized their home in Shasta Lake, California.

    Three years later, On October 3, 2003, Richard Graeff also alleged to police that an unauthorized withdrawal was made from his bank account and that he suspected Papini, who was living with them at the time.

    There's obviously something going on with this woman from a mental health standpoint, and there's no shame in that. The shame is in continuing a ruse of abduction. How hard would it be to just make a statement that she disappeared willingly and is now getting the help she needs for her mental health issues. Of course all of us would still want details deep down, but at least the matter could be put to rest.

    If SP admits to lying about being kidnapped she could face charges for lying to the FBI. It's not in her best interest to confess.

    Good point.

    Could a good lawyer get her off?

    Where I live, a guy was just arrested for lying to the police about being rear-ended, then pulling over, and while trying to exchange insurance information, the guys in the other car robbed him of the money he'd just won at the casino and took off. Turns out it was all a lie. The guy HAD won that money at the casino. But then he went and lost all of it right after he won it. So, you have to wonder why he created that elaborate robbery ruse? Wife/girlfriend at home is the most logical explanation to me.

    Folks go to strange lengths to keep misdeeds from their spouses.

    Yup! I know a young woman who in an attempt to keep her boyfriend, made up the most incredible backstory for her life full of trauma and drama. She didn't think she could keep him any other way; it was all to keep him focused on her and worried about her. It all started to unravel when, in concern, he got her to make a police report and go to counselling; lies on that level can't be sustained when outside parties get involved.

    Where did this “super mom” originate?
    And what made her a “super mom”?
    Children and a fulfilling yet demanding job?
