Have you noticed that the Lexington Herald Leader and the Lexington TV stations have not kept this story on the forefront? Could it be that they don't want to glorify a killer? The sad thing is that Shayna was a physically attractive woman who had achieved a college degree and now will have nothing to show for her life other than the label of "killer." The photos show a woman who has no remorse. What was Ryan's crime against her? So what if he didn't want to be with her. If her personality had matched her appearance, she could have had a good man. If her personality had matched her appearance, Ryan may have been more interested himself. No matter what he said to her that night, he did not deserve to die in his own apartment. We have all been rejected and we have all rejected someone in our lifetime. My feeling is that the reason you don't see much about this story in Lexington's news outlets is because Shayna is an embarrassment to this city. Normal people do not behave the way she has behaved.
Very well stated. He was guilty of nothing aside from no linger wanting to be with her. It happens. You deal with it, and move on. I am so sad for the parents. They have both lost their children.

Can money dictate any media or case of a crime?
Can family legal networking dictate testimonies or judgements within a community?
Just average curious questions. Wonder if attorneys & judge all went to school together? Wonder why that autopsy report has not been disclosed yet? Interesting..

Oh dear God you can't be serious? You're not seriously insinuating that the Poston family is paying off judges, detectives and prosecution. The FACTS speak for themselves. She didn't have a mark on her - FACT; she changed her story numerous times - FACT; she shot him six times - FACT; he's dead - FACT; she is not - FACT. Sometimes the FACTS speak for themselves. As far as autopsy it takes about a month for toxicology reports. All that will come out to the Grand Jury.

You most certainly are insinuating that those factors are all at play..

Lets see here:
1. If the judge and attorneys all went to school together, the judge would recuse him/herself.
2. The autopsy reports are not usually "disclosed" fully.

Not really all that interesting..

Wow.... No insinuating anything.... Quite defensive to someone just curious about objective questions... Poston or Carter families would never use their money or social connections to dictate or drive a legal case. You are correct, facts are very relative and pertinent in any legal case. Why would a police officer have any reason to lie? Geez... That would be absurd!
It is a FACT that you're an idiot! She is a cold blooded killer, no need for his family to "pay" for a guilty verdict you moron. You obviously didn't know these people

They are good questions and yes they most certainly affect the outcome of a crime. If Ryan was a waffle house manager and his toxicology report shows full of amphetamines and opiates it would certainly change the case and the opinion of any jury. People can hate this post all they want but even ryan would agree factors like this affect a case. Her background of being a smart educated girl play into this. If she was an ugly eastern ky meth head with criminal record, there wouldnt even be a grand jury. And rather than a plea down the prosecutor would probably be seeking death penalty. You have good questions ans law is unforntunately not close to fair, ive seen multiple dui offenders get off when the facts are clear as day, simply bc of their lawyer. Hell, look at OJ Simpson. Law is not always fair and even if it is cold blooded murder none of us were there that night. the only thing you or anyone knows is what the people who were there tell us. People can defend either side they want, and if they understood law or reality they would have the same questions you do. She has a side, it is not out yet and no one knows anything but "the facts" released by the people that are charging her. It will be interesting to hear. My best advice is call a lawyer friend and discuss this story with him/her and watch your same questions come out of their mouth. People on this sight for the most part have a conflict of interest and don't understand the factors of this case or understand how law is not so black and white

There is a 25 and up site that would probably be a better place for questions like this, you will actually get an educated non biased answer

There will also be forensic evidence and other that will tell a story beyond what Shayna says. She's said quite a bit already.

Mrs Hubers please quit posting on this site. It's not beneficial and certainly doesn't portray your daughter in a flattering light. You also might want to use spell check periodically too.

It's not her mother, but obviously someone who isn't impartial. They did make a very strong accusation, in a passive aggressive sort of way like "christians" do often. But I don't think it's her mother - perhaps another family member.
I'm trying to imagine having my son gunned down in the prime of his life and then be accused (indirectly, of course!) of paying to have someone framed for his murder, and it's very painful to even think about.

Im not related to anyone in the case and quite honestly don't care what happens. no matter what happens its nothing but a loss in my mind. Im quite honestly sick of the immaturity and people wanting to cast the first stone when no one knows shit. she may be guilty as sin. If what u people believe is correct then she would already be hung, but see this law system thing plays a role. Though it may not be fair the least bit, the questions the person asked about his and her background do play an important part in the outcome of the case. The only facts anyone knows Are the ones the prosecutor wants you to see, and everything else is disclosed when the defense is ready for us to see her side. All she's said so far is how much she apparently hates him, now I'm curious to why she Hated him so much that she could do what she did. When they are ready to tell, we will know. Oh and Sorry for not using spell check bc im on my phone and don't care to proofread for ya

I am actually quite impartial, I'm just not close minded and understand that there is the possibility that there is more to this that what's out at the moment. Maybe info will come out that she did just want him dead, but that's not the case at this point and it's too soon to just draw whatever conclusion you feel like. I made no accusations only the statement of possibility. My main point was that law is very unfair and justice is not always served just. I'm just tired of the stone casting without all the facts. This is why we have a judicial system in the 21st century. As corrupt as the justice system may be, it will do it's best to present all the facts. Then maybe you all can cast those stones.

Not a christian either, just an open minded person that questions what he doesn't understand.

From a completely neutral standpoint in that I don't know either party to this case, I can give you this advice and you can take it as you like:

In the halls of justice, sometimes, the only justice is in the halls.

Its hard to understand the context or emotion of a typed message. Don't twist my words, if Ryan were my son she wouldnt have made it to jail, if shayna were my daughter I would want all the answers and the facts of how she was treated by him. I am sympathetic very much to both families, I'm simply playing devils advocate

To the devils advocates out there. STOP. You are doing nothing but insinuating YOUR opinion and wanting everyone to buy into that opinion. You think everyone that has a different opinion to be close minded. The FACTS so far do speak for themselves. If I get a different Fact it will be through the likes of Nancy Grace or Court TV not you and your so called pontificating. By the way I type on my phone too it's just called courtesy to check grammar. But I guess that's just my age showing that I give a damn.

It's not just courtesy. It's what keeps you from looking like a complete illiterate like dear old Lexington. And that's just a FACT.

I know Shayna. She was in one of my classes last year. I am in no way condoning the murder of her bf, but I will say that Shayna was a beautiful girl who had a ton of potential. No, she was not perfect, and she would sometimes say and do things that were extremely offensive and off-putting... but she is human. Yes, murdering someone is completely unacceptable and wrong, but I believe Shayna snapped.

I do not wish to make assumptions about Shayna and Ryan's relationship, but I will say this... women who have been verbally and/or emotionally abused can do some crazy and out-of-the-ordinary things. Again, I am not condoning her behavior, I am simply offering my point of view and opinion here. I believe Shayna certainly deserves to be in jail, and obviously, she does have some serious issues. However, I wanted to shed light on the fact that Shayna is a capable, bright, beautiful and talented young woman who had a lot of potential. It makes me absolutely sick to my stomach that she would throw her life--and Ryan's--away like that.

I am praying for Ryan's family, as well as for Shayna's. I am also praying for both Shayna and Ryan, as well. What a horrific tragedy. God help and heal everyone and anyone who's been affected by this nightmare.
