A family torn apart in so many ways. One daughter Shonnette Dover age 20 dead, the other a 15 year old kept it a secret and a boyfriend on the run. What really happened that fateful night on April 3rd when a young bartender disappeared. Close to a month of endless searches and lots of traction on the social networks about sightings and whereabouts investigators based on critical intel were able to crack the case midnight on Friday the 30th.
The key source who broke under questioning was to everyone’s surprise the victim’s 15 year old sister. Two days after her disappearance police would document a missing person’s report based on statements given by those who last seen her. Her photographs splashed on the news and on social networks went viral.
For three weeks police were led on a wild goose chase by the boyfriend and sister. The suspects helped in the many searches based on information of sightings and possible whereabouts.The suspect released a video outlining the events leading up to her disappearance pleading for her safe return.
Police in a report claimed that based on information they made contact with the victim’s sister. Who gave police the tip off was it the sister who placed the call after her conscience kicked in. Some of the statements given to police on the night following the sister’s confession may be suspect in nature.
The juvenile in the presence of Child Services alleged that on the night the victim went ‘missing’, her boyfriend (name provided) was oiling ‘his brownish gun in their living room’.
He then pointed the gun at the victim who told him ‘he like play and he should put away that thing.’
The sister says she then heard a sound like a squib and he (suspect) said ‘oh shoots, I shoot that girl’.
She then saw Shonette’s mouth open and blood on her face and she said to Shaquawn, ‘lets take her hospital’ and he said “no she dead already”. The suspect would involve his father who helped the duo bury a deadly secret. She would then lead detectives to her sister’s decomposing remains at the back of the boyfriends home at Canvas City Wismar in a 4 feet shallow grave.
Was this just an accident gone terribly wrong or did he kill her to silence her. Based on information gathered in the weeks leading up to the gruesome discovery friends of the deceased commented about her shaky relationship with the suspect. They claim that she confided in them that things were not going well and she wanted to walk away from the relationship.
Information is that she may have witnessed an illicit affair between her sibling and the boyfriend and confronted them about it when she was silenced. Which puts the statements about cleaning a gun which went off by mistake into disrepute and raises the question whether it was a deliberate shooting. Hence the sister’s silence and cover up. Based on the suspect’s criminal history and revelations of drugs and gun possession Investigators may be looking at another theory whether the juvenile was under duress and threatened with her life by the suspect after witnessing her sister’s death.
However there is no other information to suggest that her life was in danger even as the threat is in the wind. The suspect was expected to report to the station daily but after awhile stopped. According to reports the wanted man 19 year old Shaquawn Alleyne was no where to be seen days leading up to the discovery.
It is believed that he fled the jurisdiction and is hiding out in French Guyana. Police continue to hunt his whereabouts. A wanted bulletin is out for him in the murder of a charming young lady who met a tragic end.
