Shawn went camping a few miles from his family’s home for the weekend in 2017. He never came home. His family last saw him in Sunday the 24th. They realized something was seriously wrong when he wasn’t answering his phone Monday morning. They went out to the campsite and knew something was wrong. His tent was moved, his bed was halfway out of the tent, the hamburger meet was still in the cooler, the fire-pit was never started, his key of the four wheeler was still in the ignition, both his cell phones were there along with his tablet and his shoes were found neatly placed on a log close to the river. For more information please look at our “Documentaries” tab for this and other cases.
Shawn’s remains were found almost a year later, yet it would take another five months to confirm that they were that of Shawn’s. They were found in the Illinois River about 15 miles from where he was camping. Foul Play is suspect.
There has been no arrests and his death currently remains unsolved.
