Keith Papini, the husband of Sherri Papini, 34, the California mom who was missing for 22 days, revealed in a shocking new interview that his wife could not get anyone to stop and help her after she was released from captivity. As a result, she ended up screaming so hard and for so long that she coughed up blood!

“She screamed so much, she’s coughing up blood from the screaming trying to get somebody to stop,” Keith revealed for ABC News’ 20/20, which will air on Dec. 2. “And again just another sign of how my wife is, she’s so wonderful. She’s saying, ‘Well maybe people aren’t stopping because I have a chain that looks like I broke out of prison,’ so she tried to tuck in her chain under her clothes.”
Being chained wasn’t the only thing shocking about Sherrie’s appearance though. The mother-of-two was also covered in bruises and burns, had a broken nose, and her hair was completely cut off at the time. Eventually though, she was FINALLY able to get someone to pull over and ultimately rescue her from her nightmare.
“She had a metal chain around her waist,” Keith continued in the preview of his upcoming interview. “She had a bag over her head. She was chained anytime she was in a vehicle.” He also detailed how she was released from captivity, describing how her two captors — whom Sherri has described as being two Hispanic women — eventually let her go. “They opened the door… they cut something, freed her restraints that were holding her in the vehicle and they pushed her out,” he explained.
Sherri was allegedly kidnapped while out for a jog on Nov. 2 and was found around 4:30 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 24, in Yolo County, California — about 150 miles south of her Redding home. In a statement released by Keith on Nov. 29, Keith explained the brutal condition his wife was in when he reunited with her for the first time.
“My first sight was my wife in a hospital bed. Her face covered in bruises ranging from yellow to black because of her repeated beatings. The bridge of her nose broken,” he wrote. “She has been branded and I could feel the rise of her scabs under my fingers.” He also noted that she weighed only 87 lbs.
