THERE have been several stunning new developments in the bizarre unsolved kidnap of California mum Sherri Papini.  Ms Papini, 35, told detectives she was abducted by two Hispanic women who held her captive for 22 days last November before inexplicably releasing her alive on Thanksgiving morning. But in their first public briefing overnight in more than 11 months, the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office revealed both male and female DNA was found on her clothes. They also released sketches of two partially masked female suspects based on vague descriptions provided by the mother-of-two in the wake of her release. In another twist, investigators disclosed that in the lead up to her disappearance, Ms Papini exchanged text messages with a man in Michigan.
