Shawn Myran Murder
Posted by RobC (+8) 4 years ago
Does anyone have any information on the teen's murder in the late 80's or early 90's? No suspects were ever named and the case remains open. It has been said that little effort, if any, was made to find whoever was guilty of the murder because the victim was a known drug user and trouble maker.

I wondered about that as well?

It was actually 1991. The most consistent information I have heard is that he was accidentally hit and killed by a car at night as he walked home down Valley Drive toward town. That's interesting because I thought he lived in Kinsey. His father was also told he was found with a stab wound. If it was a hit and run, was the driver of the car ever found?

The topic of Shawn's death came up here once before, albeit briefly:

Shawn was my cousin, though I never knew him. I don't recall ever even meeting him, he was six years older and my parents moved out of MC in 1987 when I was 8. But, I know his father well and his death had an understandably profound effect on him. He was never the same after that - honestly, who would be? He felt that the Police Department had no interest in investigating the case and basically wrote it off as good riddance.

This event pops up in my mind every now and then and has always made me wonder. Had we stayed in MC I would have graduated with the class of '97 at CCDHS. Maybe I would have known him.

Was there ever a person of interest? I had heard about and from a guy named ----- that had accidentally ran over someone around that time. But it may have been a completely separate event and time. Does anyone have any names at all?

It is odd that the victim was a drug user, so the cops dismissed it. I wonder if the assailant was a drug user as well? With all the hype about cold cases in the news, I wonder why this hasn't bee solved.
