Not so great when dealing with women you can't intimidate are you 'Beavis"?'Oh, look at the scary man...' you see, your kind of aggression only works when you prey on the weak. And that we are not...we are hurt and angry but not weak. Have you ever heard of a martyr? A martyr is someone who suffers in silence and then is sacrificed. When a martyr is sacrificed it creates a large, angry backlash. I guess you always thought that Shannon didn't have any power---but she did; she just was not the type to use it. But Shannon is gone now and we WILL bring you down. You will get what you deserve through the legal system. AND you don't scare us...you are so ignorant that you are looping your own noose.

Butthead...a real father NEVER would have taken their child's mother away from them. If this is Nathan, you don't love your daughter, you love the idea of having a female that you can control. You are in love with the idea of being able to dominate Faith. If you truly loved her and wanted the BEST for her, you wouldn't have plotted to take her mother away. "Mother is GOD in the eyes of a child" You probably have every intention of telling Faith what a horrible person you think her mother was, and warping that innocent child's mind into believeing you and your sicko, sociopathic, crippled up, getting turned into someone's b***h father were just for what you and him did. You will rationalize it to make it right so you can feel like you are a good parent to Faith. Well, you are not! Your daughter, unless removed from you, will grow up with horrible beliefs, feelings of being unloved and unwanted by her mother, she will have severe emotional problems and no appropriate coping skills to handle them, and will live a miserable life. If you loved Faith, you never would have treated her mother that way...but you are a selfish, arrogant, pompous, reject that desreves to be castrated so you can NEVER again reproduce! You think it is funny to parade a little girl around in front of her dying mother???? Well, it proves a point that you are a sick twisted individual. All you did by showing your daughter her dying mother was send a message to onlookers that you are the poster child for abusive men. You are so insecure in your manhood that you had to show Faith her mother like that because you couldn't possibly gain that child's respect in any other way than intimidation and abuse. You think you are smart...you think you have the system beat...well douche bag, you don't! I love that you are so sure of yourself and think you got away with it...it will make seeing your butt locked up in prison that much more fulfilling!!!! When you are in a prison cell making passionate love to your cellmate, I hope you dream of this posting. And if for some reason you don't end up in prison....May the devil NOT have mercy on you when you are burning in the pits of hell!!!

Emily -- nathan's mother will be sitting there too. Both of my parents are far from ever doing such stupid and ignorant things as what nathan's family does. I'm so glad that all my family and relatives are all very loving and knows there other ways than murdering and abusing such wonderful and loving people.

The mitchells bullied Shannon. I know this first hand. I was at faiths 1st bday party and saw distress in that poor woman's eyes and ever since then the bullying got worse to where I said that poor girl was either going to kill herself or get killed by them. they all will answer to a higher power.

the poster "beavis" is a troll that posts on all ncwv boards. It's not Nathan. Just another typical message board a--hole who likes to ruffle feathers. He/she does this in all forums to start arguments.

Hey idiots, relax! Beavis has been commenting on Topix long before this murder happened and he'll be here long after. He's posted in every major thread in the Harrison Co. area. He's a Topix legend with a hilarious sense of humor. Definitely not Nathan Mitchell!

Shame on CPS for not removing that child from the father's custody. He paraded that child in the parking lot that her mother was shot. And why would they not set up a supervised location for the drop off and pick up of the child. In Maryland there are centers designed for that to keep the parents and children safe. Shame on the court system in WV for not taking this volital situation more seriously. As a result a beatiful, loving mother is dead and a young child has lost her mother.
Shaking My Head at the disgrace!! Everyone involved in this situation should be ashamed and I hope they wear the guilt of not taking it serious.
I totally agree! Wv system sucks. I'm scared to death if they ever grant my daughters father visitation. Nothing is taken seriously and horrible things like this that cld of been prevented can nevr b taken back. God rest her soul. Send her to keep watch and b an angel to her lil one.

There was no reason to have a supervised pick up, from what I know. She was just supposed to meet him and they were going to exchange the little girl. From what I know Shannon hasnt been around much if any for 2 years. I don't know much more than that. I don't think anyone was expecting Larry to do such a thing, not even his son. I don't know the deceased girl but I know someone close to the situation and from what I've been told this was supposed to be a friendly exchange. Now his son, the little girl's father, is a good father. While i understand Miss Stafford's family's concerns and wanting to remove her from her father's care he has been the only parent she has known and i absolutely believe it would be unconcianable for CPS to take her, right now at least. This situation is very sad and I am deeply sorry for the lose of such a beautiful young woman whose life was taken way too early.
Sound like to me you are saying you do not know her but does seem like maybe you know the father a little too well. Sure we are supposed to believe his son knew nothing about what was going on in his fathers head. Fathers only do things like this either to give their children what ever they want, or because he wanted the girl(Shannon) around for his own needs. This gentleman (Larry) thought he was more than what he was but he made the mistake of going outside of Shinnston to do it(in Morgantown he's just the crap he is). Sounds like they may have the system in Shinnston wrapped around their little finger and that is the only reason the father(faith's daddy) was left with the child. Lord only knows what this boy did to get her to leave without her child. Not being there for two years sound like his family had her wrapped in the court system so tight that they made sure she couldn't be around for about 2 years. I just hope the same thing does not happen to you.

Anne, I will sure pray for you!!!! Look at how many people love Shannon, she was a wonderful person. I do not personally know her but I do know Nathan and how he treats women. Anne, did you know that it is on Walmart cameras that Nathan was parading Faith around her mom's deceased body? Cameras DON'T lie!!!!! Is that what a good father is? Laughing while everyone else is crying? He was married to this woman. He was supposed to "love" her. He had a child with her. Even if they were disagreeing, how could someone be so HEARTLESS to someone they used to love?? HOW CAN HE LOOK AT FAITH & SEE SHANNON & FEEL FINE ????? Because he is a monster. He should be behind bars with that sick murderer. He is just as BAD! CPS NEEDS to take this child IMMEDIATLY. IT IS IN HER BEST INTEREST YOU IDIOT. Nathan wanted Shannon dead. No remorse? Yeah, he has no business taking care of a child. I do believe you are blind and STUPID. Who is to say that when Faith is older and disobeys him, he wont choke her out too??? Anne I will pray for you!!!!!!!!!! You SURE need it.
Whats sad is he did not do this to protect his child he did this because he could no longer control Shannon and she had a very nice looking gentleman that loved & respected her. Your darn right him and his Family should be the one's with the supervised visitation. The should not have custody of this child. Can anyone tell me why he was not put in jail?

Shannon was a wonderful person and a great mother. She fought so hard just to be able to see her daughter so if you do not know all the facts please do not say she wasn't around for 2 years or that the girls father was the only parent she ever knew because that right there is a lie. Shannon loved Faith more than words could describe.

I saw this story on the ID channel and it blew my mind! I don't understand how those awful people got custody of that little girl in the first place!! That would never happen in Massachusetts where I live! I also read that after the murder by Larry that Nathan and his mother fled the area with the little girl after Shannons family got visitation...is that true?? If so Family Services should really be held accountable!

This is the second time I've seen this story, the first version of it made the Mitchells look even worse! I believe Shannon was the 100% wronged party and it's a shame she convinced herself she could make it work. Her foster family sound like really good people, too bad they couldn't convince her even sooner than when she did wise up. Here's hoping Nathan and his mommy get theirs soon.

Prayers for Shannon, Faith, and the foster family. Hope Nathan and bitch mother-in-law burn in hell for eternity. Think the dad was their pawn in the whole thing, but yea, he is paying and will continue to pay for the rest of his life. That poor child, breaks my heart. Hope she is not being abused by the bitch and the douche bag son. Justice for Shannon and Faith!

I agree with the previous post that there should be a supervised trade at all times, despite if there is a high risk or not. It just keeps all parties concerned safe.
I think they should put the son and the mother in law in jail as well. She's the one that caused this whole situation!
