Billboards Feature Suspect In Vi Ripken Case
At least two Baltimore-area billboards featured the composite sketch of Violet Ripken's alleged abductor. Police released the sketch Tuesday.
The advertisements—jointly funded by Aberdeen Police Department, Harford County Sheriff's Office, Metro Crime Stoppers and the FBI—appeared on revolving billboards along Interstate 95 and Interstate 83.
The billboard, with the black-and-white sketch, read:
For the Abduction of Violet Ripken
The phone number is a 24-7 hotline dedicated to the case.
Ripken, 74, is the mother of National Baseball Hall of Famer Cal Ripken—a native of Aberdeen. Violet Ripken was taken from her home by a man hiding in her garage between 7 and 8 a.m. on July 24, and returned unharmed to her neighborhood, where she was found tied up in her car around 6:15 a.m. on July 25, police said.
