With all these signs, someone should have been able to reach out to her or her family with their concerns before it reached this point. Maybe they did, though. We seem to have a lot of disturbed young women these days.
Did she own a gun?

Past few comments have been pretty spot on. Ive only known her for about a year but I knew she had serious social problems. Never saw her do drugs but I can't say it would suprise me. We hung out quite a few times this summer and even the past couple weeks.. I thought she was odd just as I think most did but never thought she was a bad person. Very socially awkward, would say things that would catch me and friends off guard. She took a liking to me this last summer and even again very recently. I never had any sort of relationship with her so I don't know anything about her infedelity but it seemed as soon as I told her I wasn't interested in her like that she went back to ryan immediately. She had told me a small amount about her and ryans relationship and from her side it seemed pretty dis functional. Definitely insecurity/acceptance issues, sweet girl, very socially awkward but never thought she was a bad person. I'm very curious to how she could do something like this. I never would have guessed. I feel so bad for her, Ryan and the families enduring this crazy, traumatic event.

There are many things that will be brought to light and more to the story with Ryan than anyone knows. I wish he was here to tell his side of things. I'm neither friend nor foe to her, I refrain from judging what I do not understand

Did you have any knowledge or suspicion of abuse toward her that would have warranted self defense?

Never did she say he was abusive to her... She made it sound like he played mind games and messed with her emotions. Told her she was fat etc.. Stuff you dont say to a girl that might be a little off. She told me quite a few stories about their break up at the beginning of summer involved over his addiction to pain pills.. Again this is just her side but it seemed sincere and honest when telling me

Such a tragic situation. His life gone, her life, and the lives of their families, ruined. And for what? We all know people like the girl you all have described in the comments. You never think they will actually do something like this. So sad. I am praying for his family.

True and yes, Shayna is academically brilliant and musically inclined. She was the recipient of the Governor's School for the Arts, a coveted scholarship. She also received numerous academic scholarships, graduated from U.K. with honors in just three years. I have heard that Ryan was on drugs for depression and could be very abusive. If Shayna is guilty of anything, it is staying with this man and continuing to date him. Temporary insanity? Self-defense? Probably both. But the true loss is that society and these two families and many friends have lost two great young people who were contributing members in a world that has too few of them. We are all the losers in this battle of which we know so little about as of yet. We don't need to pass judgement until we know some facts. Only the future will tell.

This is 100% accurate. I used to be friends with shayna all the time until about a year ago. I would catch her lying about 10 times a day over nothing even important so I said to hell with her. I honestly think she believed her own lies. Shayna is brilliant and a sociopath. Everyone saw her mugshot. I think she planned this whole event. I bet that Ryan had a new girl and she freaked out. Ryan and Shayna were always hot and cold. I think that she went to his house and planned to murder him. Think about it, her facebook was down before the event, she woukd have had to drive from lexington to nky. I think that she purposefully made herself look like a wreck so that she can plead insanity/ self defense.Never knew her to do drugs. Ryan took her to the shooting range and taught her how to shoot. Horrible that such two bright futures are now destroyed.

She never made it sound bad or concerning to me. She just told me she broke up with him at the beginning of summer bc she found pain pills in his house. And that she was done with the relationship bc he lied to her about the drugs. During the same conv. She mentioned she lost weight last Xmas bc he thought she was overweight. She then laughed about that being so stupid that she cared about losing the weight for him( at this time she was broke up with him according to her). She seemed happy and over the relationship at that time, but nothing did she say seemed concerning, just seemed like an ended relationship that most of us could probably at one time or another relate to.... Nothing alarming

Although she might have gotten very upset about something, what she is guilty of is killing a man, not dating him.

I noticed that about her facebook too. She looks absolutely crazy in her mugshot! She left her instagram up though and that was dumb considering she has the shooting range pic on there. I heard she shot him 5-9 times, doesnt sound like self defense to me...

Agreed. Ryan only stayed with shayna bc she would threaten to kill herself if he left her. He thought he was doing her a favor. Look how that turned out. How dare you say that she is guilty of staying with him. If you don't know anything about the situation then do not talk in this forum.

Certainly wasn't self defense. Apparently she was waiting at his apt for him and shot him dead when he walked through the door.

As far as I know, the police haven't released any further statements so NO ONE knows anything more about the situation than that Ryan was shot multiple times, that Shayna allegedly shot him (she hasn't pled guilty, nor has a jury convicted her yet and, in this country, people are presumed innocent until proven guilty), and that it is a very sad situation that resulted in the loss of two bright, young lives.

According to her Ryan owned a few guns, at least one with a silencer she mentioned once
