Finally some activity in the Shauna/Zaylee Fryar case

I wrote about missing baby Zaylee Fryar last summer. She vanished without a trace in 2011, along with her mother, Shauna Fryar. Shauna was found dead in a river several days later, but there was no sign of Zaylee. Well, after nearly four years the police have finally disclosed some information about the mother’s death: namely, that it was a homicide and they think she was killed in Millersville, Tennessee (the town she and Zaylee lived in and vanished from) and then taken to Nashville, Tennessee and dumped there. They haven’t disclosed the cause of death or much other information.

The local authorities are blaming the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation for losing some records. The TBI claims they gave the records to the local LE. Shrug. There are two suspects in the case, neither of whom have been publicly named. Zaylee’s father is presumably not one of them as he was in jail when Shauna was killed.

Shauna’s death left one child missing and six others without a mother. I can only hope that Zaylee is still alive. She turned four years old on the 14th of last month.

    You may have meant seven other children. According to the case file, unless it has been changed, she had eight kids, including Zaylee. At the age of 28. I just can’t even……I doubt the little girl is still alive, but I guess you never know. Twenty years from now it might be a different story. And as for the release of info? Nothing anyone with a brain couldn’t have figured out by now. I’m not sure how that would help except to put the case back in the public eye.

    Megan wrote that one of Shauna’s kids had died previously.

    Unless I missed it, that wasn’t there before.
