I speak on behalf of two. although i can appreciate everyones input and opinions sometimes they cannot find a cause of death sometimes death just happens. When i knocked on the door, and a four year old answered, and he said "my mommy is on the bed and she's not talking." i knew something was wrong. When we found her lieing on her bed on top of her covers in the fetal position eyes open buldging her body literally blue bruised from head to toe distinct finger marks on her arms, neck, back, legs, face, pretty much anywhere a hand can be layed, we knew something was not right. We were there to take her to the safe house because she had called us monday morning april 24th. She told us that he (her boyfriend) kicked her down the stairs and held a knife to her throat, threatened bodily harm, she had him arrested, we told her to pack her bags which she did, and we would pick her up tuesday morning by noon, to take her to the safe house. apparently her bags were packed, but her boyfriend was released from OCJ early monday morning, the 24th. With a restraning order in tow he was delivered to her residence by whom? we dont know.(sherrifs?),(friend?), i doubt it he had none. Autopsy findings non conclusive. Toxicology reports, negative, for all you people who like to speculate. Bringing us back to the beginning of this statement. Investigation still on going. Boyfriend, person of interest was asked, by the sherrifs department investigator, if he is innocent, to clear his name come forward, and take a polygraph, or speak to the investigators, this the reply recieved by Suspect and suspects lawyer refused. Will justice ever be found? Will we on the little boys behalf, ever give up? NEVER. Anyone with any information on this investigation, please for this child and Sheila's family, please come forward. Or log on and explain. Thank you all so very much for your opinions your caring your doubtfulness and your hostility. Talk to you soon, Closer than U!
Brenda, I'm an old long ago friend of Jim's and your family. I am so sorry for you and your family's loss. For this to linger on unresolved like this must be very painful.

I hope Sheila gets the justice she deserves and I hope you and your family can get some closure to this.

Please take care.

We need justice.
Will it take this guy to kill someone else before anything is done?

Well pretty much the monster got off and now has his son who I feel was better off with his aunt and uncle. The poor little guy had to have his mother ripped out of his life so tragically by this man who they call his father and now he has been ripped out of a home that gave him much love and attention. Don't you think this Tom guy should have served time for all the beatings he did to Sheila and now her cause of death is unknown. Is'nt that enough. No because our justice system sucks. Just take a look at the Erin Maxwell case. Go figure she's dead to. I guess what come's around, goes around and that bastard Tom will get his to.

I heard that this Tom guy is a loser who cant even spend time with his own kid without a women around!Whats next the kid and the new girlfriend are dead too.Why would are justice system give custody to this part time dad/murderer,probably just because he had a good lawyer.Hopefully the poor little boy turns out all right considering all that he has been through because of his father.

Yea I agree with everyone about this loser and justice should be served. They what , gave this liar custody of his kid are you kidding me. He should be in jail for murder and now hes a father. He must have a great lawyer or hes really full of bullshit and can make people believe whatever he says. Good luck to his new women she must be a real piece of work to even believe a word this guy says. Sounds like their must be more than that going on?? she must be desperate to see a person like that.

Well at least they are telling you the investigation is still on going. My father died in Pennellville and I was told by Reuel Todd if I didnt like the way the investigation was handled then take it to Albany. This was sent to me in an e-mail all in capitals and we all know what that means. I found this extremely unprofessional from a L.E. Sheriff. My father is found dead on a Saturday I arrive on Sunday and the lead investigator Steven Bourgeois wont even speak to my husband and I as we leave NY. In fact I was never questioned. I was in Ny for 5 days and never did any LE officer call or come to my fathers home at 309 county rt 10 in Pennellville. I know my father was not the nicest guy but he was still my father the only one I will ever have, and they claim NO foul play? I dont believe them and never will.

Itís been 5 years now. I'm guessing the law has forgotten this investigation, about Sheila and her battered bruised body. How frightening to know the justice system works so efficiently with famous or high profile cases outside of rural America. I guess she becomes another blip...another number. The investigation of Tommy Perrin ends just like that and he gets a son out of the deal. Place yourself in 2006 and ask yourself if this is a man who, regardless if he murdered someone or not, should have custody of a child? I haven't lived in Central NY in more than 2 and a half decades. Got out while the gettin was good. I miss it though; the earth and the tree's, but mostly I miss the people. Tommy was a kid I knew about 100 years ago on a farm who helped me bandage my hand up when we were kids. He and the older boys built a fort behind his parentís house where us younger kids snuck into and annoyed the crap out of those guys. That was our job! When he got a little older he bought the greatest car I ever saw. Sounds like he made a few wrong turns in his life, sounds like he needs to man up and get a few things off his chest.

I am a former friend of the Shortslef family and former best friend of Sheila's brother, Jim. Sheila was such a shy sweet girl in her early years. She gained much needed confidence as she blossomed into a beautiful young woman. I know she became somewhat a party girl, but then again, who of us at that time, in Fulton, weren't? I lost touch with the family years ago, and was shocked to initially hear about her death at the time. I am even more shocked to learn now that this is still an open case??? How can that possibly be?

I don't know her at all I believe but from what I am reading here I have the same conclusions you do.
It's too bad the family cannot clarify the issues once and for all yet and lay it to rest because it is very interesting now.

What do you mean it's very interesting now? Whatever happened to Tom and the poor kid Seth? Did Tom Perrin flee the area ? There was testimony in Family Court that Sheila's death was not natural. Has anyone been charged? Let me guess.....
