    IN - Tyler Shanabarger, 7 mos, suffocated, Johnson County, 19 June 1999

    I was wondering if anyone here remembers a case from some years ago about an Indiana ( I'm pretty sure ) guy who became so enraged when his girlfriend (wife maybe?) refused to go to his father's funeral, that he plotted to get her pregnant, have her bond with the child and then after about 9 months he smothered the child to get even with her? It was such an outrageous crime, sick to the core. I never heard whatever happened to this guy. Does anyone know?

    I think the mother's name was Amy Parsons. I think they were married. It was a baby boy.

    I'll see what I can find on Google.

    Okay... I can't do a link because the link I found has the 'F' word in it.

    Anyway, the man's name was Ronald Shanabarger. The mother's name was as I posted above.

    It did happen in Indiana. The baby boy was 7 months old, and was suffocated by plastic wrap wrapped around his head.

    Looks like it happened (or maybe just was written about) 30-may-2002.

    They were not married at the time of his father's funeral, it seems he married her and got her pregnant AFTER the funeral, as part of his sick plot.

    I will try to 'Google' using the baby's father's name to see what I can find.

    This is one of the most despicable cases I have ever come across.

    Good Lord. That is horrid! I have never heard of this case. Just when I think I've heard the worst thing one person can do to another, I hear something like this.

    Thankfully, though, the same is true about the wonderful things that one person can do for another.

    You know what its one thing to have come up with the sick plot while he was grief stricken about the death of his father, but its a whole other story when he could raise this precious child for 7 months and then go ahead with the plan. He is truly a monster and obivously nuts.

    I never heard of this case either and it's so hard to understand or believe there are such animals as this man roaming the streets before they explode. Sorry to hear he wasn't afforded the death penalty. How horrid.

    "Prosecutor Lance Hamner: "It's just so bizarre, it's hard to really comprehend the facts. It's the most bizarre case that I've ever had any dealings with and probably the most bizarre motive I've ever heard of."

    This case just caught my attention, I had not heard of it either until now.
    I do not understand how someone could plot this when he was grieving for his own father, then have a baby and murder him.
    It's just beyond words............
