    Exclamation shanda sharer murder, january 1992

    Those of you from Indiana you more than likely remember this. i was 11, a year younger that Shanda and living about 90 min from where this took place. Shanda was a 12 year old girl and was tourtured for 10 hours and then burned to death after being 1/3 of a bizzare teenage lesbian triange. 2 of the 4 are already out and living among us. The following is very disturbing.

    I read a book on this case several years ago and it was horrible. From what I remember it was completely planned and premeditated. What they did to that beautiful little girl was horriffic.

    I hate the thought that any of them are out.

    This story is horrifying. EVERY damn aspect of this crime is unimaginable. I keep going back to my initial thought though. She was 12 years old and involved in a sexual lesbian relationship? That blows my mind. I'm not passing judgment - please don't misunderstand. I am just shocked by how young these kids were and their lifestyle. It is a travesty that these two willing participants are allowed to walk free.

    Does anyone know what is going on with the two girls that are out of jail? Unbeliveable the things they did to poor Shanda and now they are out living their lives.

    Unhappy

    Well, I just read about the case and I'm sorry I did.

    Poor little Shanda. It breaks my heart to hear that right before she died, after being beaten and stabbed for hours, she was saying "Mommy". OMG.

    I had nightmares for awhile after I read this book. I could not sleep without picturing shanda in my mind. It was terrible.

    When I hear stuff like this, it makes me wish I could turn back time.
    I am a paranoid parent as it is.

    when it happened i was 11 and we lived not too far from whre these girls are from and it scared me to death and my mother was scared to death too, I remember when we heard about it and all the detail, i didn't even know what a lesbian was at the time. It did and still does disturb me.

    Its one of the most Horrific Murders I have ever read about. I can still remember them describing how shanda was when they found her, that is the description that gave me MANY sleepless and restless nights. I swear this stuff scares the hell out of me as a parent!

    It did my head in too.
    I wished I hadn't happened upon it when I first read about it.
    I'm not sure how healthy it is to focus on all the bad stuff in this world.

    I am telling you I had to STOP reading all the "True Crime" stuff. I started reading about Ted Bundy and Diane Downs when I was like 13, and I have read MANY books. At night sometimes My mind is going a million miles a minute thinking of all the tragedies and I cant sleep. Its not healthy but I have always been interested in "Why" and the "Mind" of these people.

    There's really no mystery Michelle, people who commit murder are just very unevolved souls and where there is good, there is always bad, it cannot be any other way.

    Not sure I've heard of Diane Downs......geez I'm slippin' lol

    Hey thanks Michelle
    I'm not right up on True Crime and don't watch any of those CSI type shows.
    I'm not sure what got me interested in the JonBenet case which is how I found WS.
    I think maybe my child was 6 at the time....that was one reason.
    And I guess I just love kids and once I saw how cute JB was....I had to know what happened to her.
