Arrests were never made in the case as police struggled to identify a motive for the seemingly random crime.

Papini was then arrested in March this year after it was revealed she was actually staying with an ex-boyfriend during the time she was missing.

In her statement Tuesday, Papini said she was “deeply ashamed” of her actions and vowed to “work the rest of my life to right what I did.”

The statement was released shortly after she struck a deal with prosecutors in which she agreed to plead guilty to two counts of mail fraud and lying to a law enforcement officer – charges that carry maximum sentences of 20 and five years, respectively .

Under the terms of the agreement, Papini must also pay back more than $300,000 to federal, state and local government agencies. Prosecutors said they would recommend reduced sentences in return.

Shasta County Sheriff Michael L. Johnson, who has spent years investigating the case, told The US Sun he doesn’t buy Papini’s apology, insisting that “she’s just sorry because she got caught.” “.

“The bottom line in this case was very strong narcissistic behavior, along with deceit, deceit and selfishness,” Johnson said, “so I have a very hard time believing that she’s sorry.”

“She had several opportunities to come clean at various stages of this investigation and she never did.

“Now we’re suddenly supposed to think that she has regrets for what she did?” he asked. “Well, I just don’t think so.”

Johnson also admitted he had “mixed feelings” about Papini’s confession. While he called her admission a sign that investigators had done their job well and “backed her into a corner,” he was disappointed that after so many years of wasting time with the police and fear in her community had been given an opportunity to strike a plea deal community.

“I’m really struggling to have any compassion or sympathy for her at all, which is what a plea deal usually amounts to,” the sheriff said.

“I’m frustrated with that part because I want her to be held accountable and if you go on a plea deal you usually get a lot less punishment.”

“HARD PILL TO SWALLOW”

In a previous interview with The US Sun shortly after Papini’s arrest, Johnson slammed her for wasting it more than half a decade Police time and resources devoted to investigating their “false claims”.

Johnson also called Papini “selfish” and “callous” for sowing unnecessary fear in the local community, adding that he had “zero sympathy” for her following her arrest.

Following her confession, Johnson said his opinion of Papini remains unchanged.

The sheriff said he had absolutely no sympathy for Papini, but yes empathize with family members She “deceived” while continuing her lies, including her husband Keith.

“I can’t imagine what they must go through when they find out and now they know she fooled them all well,” Johnson said. “I can’t speak for her, but I have sympathy for the family.

“You must still be in shock… You supported her the whole time and she lied. That must be a hard pill to swallow.”

UNCONFIRMED STORY

Skepticism had long surrounded Papini’s kidnapping allegations, despite her detailed account of what had happened to authorities.

Johnson said investigators had been suspicious for some time that Papini’s story might have been fabricated, but they still worked for months to follow every lead and do their due diligence to “get their facts straight.”

Papini disappeared on November 2, 2016, leading family members to fear she was abducted while she was jogging.

Hours before she disappeared, Papini sent a message to her husband, Keith, asking if he would be home for lunch, but he said he would not be.

She was then unable to pick up her children from a daycare center and was reported missing later that afternoon.

Keith told Good Morning America at the time, “Anyone who knows my wife knows there’s no reason for her to go … She was definitely taken against her will.”

A motorist then found Papini on November 24 in rural Yolo County, about 150 miles from her home in Redding.

She was emaciated and bound at the waist with a chain that was attached to her left wrist with a cable tie. Hose clamps were attached to her ankles in what the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office later described as “pain restraint restraints.”

Papini was also covered in bruises, her long blond hair was shaved off, she had a “burn” on her right shoulder and a broken nose.

‘WARNING HUNGRY WOMAN’

In a statement last month, the Attorney for the Eastern District of California, Phillip A. Talbert, said the nearly six-year investigation into the case had determined that Papini fabricated the entire story, even going so far as to harm himself, to support their claims.

Investigators said they were able to determine Papini was dating an ex-boyfriend, James Reyes, who was involved in the ruse from the start.

The mock hijacking was reportedly planned on prepaid cell phones, according to an affidavit released by Talebert’s office this week.

Described in the report as an “attention-hungry woman” who had numerous affairs, Papini asked her former lover to pick her up and then spent the next few weeks at his apartment, Reyes confessed to police.

The ex-boyfriend is also said to have told police how he hired a rental car to bring her back to her Family quarters on Thanksgiving Day2016

“When a young mother disappeared in broad daylight, a community was filled with fear and concern,” Talbert said.

“The Shasta County Sheriff’s Office immediately began the investigation and requested FBI assistance. Countless hours have been spent following leads, all in an effort to bring this woman back to her family.

Talbert added: “Three weeks later she was found 146 miles south of her disappearance and the focus shifted from trying to find her to trying to find her captors.

“Ultimately, the investigation concluded that there was no kidnapping and that time and resources that could have been devoted to investigating actual crimes, protecting the community and providing resources to victims were wasted because of the defendant’s conduct.”

No one else has been charged in connection with Papini’s staged kidnapping.

Jackson said there was no evidence Keith Papini knew about the scam, which was planned by his wife. Reyes is also not expected to be charged.

Before her sentencing, the sheriff added: “She’s only sorry now because she got caught and she’s never been sorry before. Now that she’s being charged and facing jail, is she suddenly sorry? I do not believe that.

“And we’ll see if the judge buys it or not when it comes to sentencing.”
