Aberdeen Police Are Still Chasing Down Suspect in Vi Ripken Kidnapping

Share the News

Despite releasing several likenesses of the suspect — including this police sketch, and a Walmart surveillance video — as well as having “a lot of leads,” Vi Ripken’s armed kidnapper, who abducted the celebrity mother from her Aberdeen home nearly a month ago, is still at large.

Aberdeen Police say they are not slowing their efforts and have plenty yet “to investigate, to prioritize, and to check out,” and the department has increased patrols of Ripken’s neighborhood. They say the case is receiving the department’s full attention — which is just how the case would be treated if the victim weren’t the mother of a celebrated Oriole.

Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to call the tipline, 410-836-5432, at any time of day or night.
