On April 21, 2012; 29 year old Shannon LYnn Stafford was gunned down in a Wal Mart parking lot, going there that morning to meet family and thinking she was about to have her first unsupervised visit with her 2 year old daughter Faith in over a year after months and months of torment from her "ex". Shannon had finally proved she was a good mother, which she shouldn't have had to prove because she was an amazing person. On that dreadful Saturday morning Shannon dropped her boyfriend Nick off at the Tire center at Wal Mart where he thought she would be meeting him momentarily, She then pulled around front to a parking space where her soon to be ex father in law walked up and shot her, she tried to escape the truck and once she did he shot her a few more times. Her ex husband was parading their 2 year old daughter around within yard from Shannon's dead body with a smile on his face according to several wItnesses. She had endured an abusive controllIng relationship, escaped, but not allowed to take Faith and in the end was Not allowed to have her. On Monday April 30,2012 Larry Mitchell pled NOT GUILTY to the murder of Shannon, his bail hearing will be Wednesday May 2,2012 @ 9 am. Due to the fact Shannon was told to meet at the Wal Mart alone I believe that her ex Nathan also knew what was going on. This was all premeditated in an effort to make sure Faith was not in the hands of her loving mommy. Please make sure there is justice for shannon and closure for that baby who now has to live the rest of her life in the controlling arms of an ill minded family, teaching her nothing but evil. For shannon, nick and faith! Justice will prevail

      Because no one has a right to take a life and especially in front of her child.. I firmly believe this was planned by both father and son!!
