A 911 call log released by California police reveals that the family of Sherri Papini, the mother of two who mysteriously vanished in November and reappeared three weeks later after an alleged abduction by two Hispanic women, had made multiple calls to the cops about her erratic behavior.
Papini’s relatives contacted law enforcement several times between 2000 and 2003, according to incident reports from the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office.
In 2000, Papini’s father alleged she had vandalized his home. That same year, her sister said she suspected Papini kicked in her back door while allegedly trying to break in.
Papini’s father called the sheriff’s office again in 2003 to claim that Papini had made an unauthorized withdrawal of money from his checking account. But police say that they later determined that the missing money was some type of mix-up, and that the funds were returned.
The log showed that Papini’s mother, Loretta Graeff, also contacted police back in 2003, claiming that her daughter was “harming herself and blaming it on [her.]” The report does not, however, indicate whether the 21-year-old had in fact harmed herself.
Authorities say the years-old cases don’t “have anything to do” with the ongoing investigation into Papini’s disappearance and none of them resulted in charges or arrests. Investigators were reportedly aware of these previous law-enforcement calls during their work on Papini’s disappearance.
Shasta County Sheriff Tom Bosenko has told People that investigators have no reason “not to believe” Papini’s account of how she went missing. At this time, no arrests have been made in Papini’s alleged abduction.
