“Her husband Keith, was immediately notified,” Sheriff Bosenko said. “I believe it was the California Highway Patrol was able to use their cell phone, and connect Sherri Papini in cell phone communication with her husband.”
Sheriff Bosenko told reporters he doesn’t know why Papini was released now, or why here, or where she has held for the past three weeks.
“No she was not able to provide that specific information,” Sheriff Bosenko said. “I’m not able to release all the information that she was able to provide us at this time.”
Witnesses say investigators meticulously examined the shoulders of Interstate 5, and the land surrounding this church near where Papini was found.
