Concerned family members had been unable to reach him or his mother, and finally asked the police to do a welfare check. Shannon was found dead on his bathroom floor, and his mother was arrested. Police say that she said she didn’t want to take him to the hospital even though she knew he probably had broken bones, and wanted him to “die a peaceful death”.

Shannon loved animals, especially his “fur baby”, Bella. He enjoyed reading, sports, and classic rock music

Case status:
