    It looks like possibily an investigator at the Sheriffs Office started this fb page? That's really awesome. I wish there where more cases like this.

    I'm so glad to see a thread about this! Sally was my friend's sister, so I really want to see this case solved and justice served.

    The Facebook page was started by the new investigator on the case. I can't remember his name, but I've emailed with him and he's very devoted to the case.

    I believe this case will be solved when someone with information finally decides to talk. So it's imperative that we keep this case in the public eye!

    If anyone is interested in this case, please message me! I'd love to compare notes!

    May Shane and Sally rest in peace.

    Has anyone heard any updates in this case? I think the last I heard was that they were going to exhume Shane, but that was a while back.

    I'm afraid to know what might be on those audio tapes. Or was it just music that might have belonged to Shane?

    He certainly does look old, perhaps a life time of stress and / or unhealthy lifestyle choices.

    The other thing that sticks out to me is that if the alleged offender is only 47, that he would have had to have completed this horrific double murder (complete with keeping 'trophies' from the victims) when he was just 18 years old himself. Thankfully it seems as though this budding serial killer didn't kill any further victims in the almost three decades since the murders of Shane and Sally.

    MOO.

    Wow....just goes to show every case is just one step away from being solved. And I agree, that is a rough 47 years.

    Remembering Sally McNelly: What her mom wants you to know

    Two teens, Shane Stewart and Sally McNelly were killed on July 4, 1988. Their bodies were found in two different locations months later. Their case is unsolved but is still being investigated.

    Sally’s parents told us what they would want people to know about sally.

    "Sally was a very kind, loving person, she held no malice. She was very sweet and compassionate. I with more people really knew her. It's sad but when children with so much to live, to grow, to become, their lives are ended like this anyway but in a violent way like this, it's unbelievable. It's incomprehensible. I just want people to continue to care because Sally would have cared. She never would have forgotten her friends,” Patricia Wade, Sally’s mother, said.

    Interesting that he was poi from the beginning, if he is the killer I hope he can be arrested and convicted as he deserves to spend the rest of his life in jail

    Hope endures in 29-year-old cold case

    Mr. Gilbreath has in fact been a person of interest since the beginning, amongst several others," Lowe said, but he did not elaborate further.

    Lowe, who has been working the case since 2013, believes it will be solved.

    "Investigators working cold cases are blessed with the work that has been completed by those that have gone before them," he said. "Time passes and evidentiary opportunities and techniques become available that weren’t even thought of in 1988. It is said that the information to solve a cold case will be in the case file. One just has to see it. Never hurts to have another set of eyes look."
