well I'm pretty sure the average person would stop what they were doing when shot in the leg, and then she could at least run away.(dont know what scenario youre imagining). & the HEAD isnt the largest body mass and THAT is where she shot.

<quoted text>
As someone who knew her awhile ago, she was always a little off. She never had friends longer than a few months. She always talked bout her personal life, never cared about other peoples feelings or their life. She was nice to your face, but you could tell it wasn't sincere. When I met her, she had just left her sorority at UK. She was a DZ and said they were to strict and no fun. She constantly bitched about men. Wasnt really friends with her when she was dating Ryan. But do know she was known for sleeping around with married men. And would be devastated when they wouldn't leave their wife/fiancée/girlfriend! She was an odd one. Prayers to her and Ryan's family!
She was a DG and the blackballed her because she was so crazy,so pretty much they kicked her out. She couldn't keep friends and would always lie and steal from them.

Patrick Crowley of Strategic Advisers, LLC released the following statement from the Poston family Wednesday morning.

Please keep in mind that the real victim in this tragedy is Ryan Poston, not the woman who shot him multiple times. Anyone who ever knew Ryan knows her claims of self-defense are absurd. We look forward to the day when the truth comes out in a court of law, not from the mouth of a criminal defense lawyer trying his case in the media.

I think they summed it up perfectly, and I hope that people continue to focus on Ryan and his family, rather than the absurd claims of an obsessed, troubled girl, whose only possible defense is to blame the victim.

I don't believe it was self defense, for the reasons I stated. But the idea that you can shoot someone in the leg if they are indeed trying to harm you - it doesn't work. That's a tiny little target and you're taking a chance on it stopping them. If you're ever truly fighting for your life, let me know how it works to try to take aim at a leg (probably in motion).

Exactly, he was obviously already down after the first shot (if it was in fact in the face), which would have made any shot beyond that unnecessary, so it seems to me that this was done in a fit of rage by Shayna, not in self defense. And as many have stated before, despite her insecurities, if she was in fact being abused by him physically to where she thought her life was in danger, then why was she so obsessed with him? Most people who are in a physically abusive relationship are scared to leave or feel trapped because of the consequences, but from what I gather he wanted nothing to do with her so this does not add up.

Well hopefully if i go to the gun range like Shayna clearly did then i will have the practice i need to hit that "tiny little target". His leg was an example...if she could aim and hit his head then im pretty sure she had good aim, and could do shoulder, leg, whatever is less life threatening than his head. now lets stop being a smart ass and focus on whats truly important, that Shayna shot him multiple times and cant claim that it was self defense.

I guess I can see where it would be possible to get that angry to shoot, but I'd think most people would snap back to reality after the first shot and freak out and call 911. Unless they really wanted them to die and gained satisfaction from their death so they wanted to make sure it happened.
Self defense? Man on the floor, mission accomplished, I'm out of there fast and dialing 911.

You're a little too touchy, no one is being a smartass. You obviously have little to no experience in firearms or dealing with threats, and are supposing what YOU would do (try to find that leg with them moving toward you). As I said, I absolutely agree that it wouldn't be self defense since she continued to fire after the threat was eliminated. The fact remains that you don't look for a particular body part to hit when your life is on the line - which I don't believe hers was.

Not touchy. Thankfully, I do not have experience in firearms and dont feel the need to. I'm just saying it is possible to shoot without intent to kill. You just took my comment too literal when i said shoot their leg. The purpose of the comment was to say, why shoot him in the head if it was indeed self defense. The leg was an example.

I think that the elephant in the room here is that Ryan had an ongoing drug problem. Prescription opiates are capable of MASSIVELY changing a person's mood and personality. They are incredibly addictive and yes, it is capable of making a person extremely depressed and even suicidal. None of us have ANY idea what happened that night.

What I don't understand is, if her craziness and stalker behavior was keeping him from ending the relationship, why didn't he get a restraining order or pursue some other legal avenue? If anyone knows how to get a restraining order, it would be an attorney, right? People on this forum who only knew Shayna for a matter of weeks or months picked up on the fact that she was "off" and sociopathic. So after 3-4 years he, of all people, must have known that she was crazy and unstable. WHY didn't he get her out of his life for good? There is more to this story than we think.

I'm not even sure that it matters, but this is driving me nuts: Their relationship did not last 3-4 years. This is the result of a factual error from one quote from one news story. As far as I can remember, the two knew each other for two years, at best.

Ryan did have a restraining order against her at one point. He blocked her number but that didn't work so he CHANGED his number.

Exactly. I knew her about 3 years ago! He was not in her life then! And you know she would of told people about it! She would talk bout her life to anyone who would listen.

Shayna's Facebook page went down Saturday evening and Ryan's today. Both families did not want people speculating from pictures of their children's past, would be my guess, nor evidence gathered from the data and pics. Since Shayna could not have taken her own Facebook page down from a jail cell, I am sure she asked a friend or family member to deactivate it for her.
why post this comment when it's irrelevant and not true? Ryan's page is still up. but who cares.

@anon~ Seriously! Stop being such a know-it-all! You have snapped at numerous people for being incorrect, when you yourself do not know as much as you think you do. You obviously didn't actually know this couple as well as you say and you have contradicted yourself so many times on here, that you seem as looney as Shayna. Leave Ryan alone and shut your mouth when you have that strong urge to blast a victim's personal life!
