Black History Month: Shannon Darnell Harris

In honor of Black History Month I’m profiling one African-American MP every day on this blog for the month of February. Today’s case is Shannon Darnell Harris, who disappeared from Houma, Louisiana on October 10, 1998. This date also happened to be his thirtieth birthday.

Harris visited his mom in Houma that day, then left to take a bus back to Dallas, Texas, where he was living and going to art school. He apparently never made it to the bus stop. Foul play is suspected in his case and it may have been drug-related; he was involved with drugs.
