    I am VERY local to this case obviously, and I can assure you all of the children were talked to. My youngest daughter's best friend's mom was also there that day and has been questioned extensively.

    Penton will be in jail for the rest of his life.

    I found that he'd been "charged" related to Shannon's disappearance, but nothing after that.
    Nothing about charges being dismissed.
    Nothing about him being acquitted.
    Nothing about it being a wild-goose-chase.
    Nothing past being charged. Nothing at all related to Shannon after that.

    Penton is on Murderpedia and it describes another girl (Christi Meeks) who also disappeared playing hide-and-seek who turned up murdered. She was in Texas. He pleaded guilty to her murder, along with the murders of two other TX girls.

    Meeks' father sounded like he thought Penton pleaded guilty to save himself from Death Row and doesn't necessarily think that he is the one who killed his daughter.

    The link to Penton in Shannon's case came from an informant in Ohio (Jeffrey Sunnycalb) and it doesn't sound like Shannon's father's PI believes him 100% either.

    This is why he should have been made to allocute, to remove all doubt. I assume he didn't or her father wouldn't have doubts.

    I recently completed reading the Steve Jackson book, "Bogeyman", and decided to map out Penton's abduction and "dump sites" for each of the crimes he's convicted of. It's probably just another observation that would be ignored in a folder somewhere, but Penton always seemed to travel north east after each abduction.

    Justice for Shannon Sherrill. She's out there somewhere, and the people who know where she is are likely still alive, too. Her family deserves to know where their child is.

    just read Shannon's case. Bumping for her as we approach 30 years. Wouldn't it be wonderful if this were the year. My heart goes out to her family.

    She and my oldest daughter were the same age. I know a couple of Shannon's family members.

    Thirty years missing on this day. It was a warm and sunny, beautiful October afternoon today, as it was that day thirty years ago when Shannon was last seen. The sky is a completely different shade of azure blue. Little kids played outdoors. Farmers harvested their corn and soybeans. Shannon went out to play with her friends, and never returned.

    Justice for Shannon.
