Cone of silence surrounds Vi Ripken's abduction

Thanks for your continuing coverage of the abduction of former Orioles Cal Ripken's mother, Vi. ("As Vi Ripken abduction case continues, police silent on details," Aug. 2).

It's been 10 days since this unfortunate incident and still very few facts have been revealed while many questions remain unanswered.

I saw family spokesman John Maroon's statement, but why has the victim not described what happened to her? Why have authorities not divulged more details of the investigation?

Is this normal procedure? I look forward to hearing more about it in The Sun.
