I really feel for the families of those taken in these shootings however I don't believe that they have the right person. Look at the source of the police information. Sammy Ranson AKA Lying Sammy, really??? He's a liar and a thief and is in A LOT of trouble with the law himself. Bobby Walker and Andy Palmer??? Both of which have had their own run in's with the law and have both been involved with drugs (both of which are very good friends). Rodney Shaffer Jr. who has several meth charges pending against him. And once the investigation is complete at the Sissonville property and they find NOTHING then what??? I'm afraid that these families that feel a false sense of relief will have to go through this all over again when they realize that they have arrested the wrong person.

The police have wrongly accused Shawn Lester of this crime. What's going to happen when he is proven innocent??? Everyone is still going to look at him as if he was guilty just because of how he has been portrayed by the news and newspapers and everyone else. Shawn is a good hearted person and anyone that really knows him knows that. Yeah he has made some bad decisions in his life but who hasn't?

i think that they do have the right person bc someone must know something and if it is him and who ever else was involed stays in jail for the rest of there lifes and killing someone must have been over drugs that is a good reason

Shawn did not do this. He is a good person who took me in when i was a troubled teen b/c he was married to my sister. He supported me and all my teenage bullsh for 2 years and was never one time violent towards me or my family even when I stole his car and money!!!!!! He did not have to take me in or take me to school in his embarassing old junk heap cars( the pop can). Thanks Shawn

Well I happen to know that Shawn Lester is VERY capable of comminting these crimes and many more. Any man that could sexually molest and sodimize a baby from the time she was about a year old until she was three could do anything, if you ask me. And there is no use in him or anyone that knows him denying it because he was seen, and it was known that he did it. HE IS A MONSTER CAPABLE OF ANYTHING. I wish someone would have had the guts to come forward at the time and told the whole story instead of waiting until now. They need to jack up the jail and put this MONSTER underneath it. And peopld need to quit defending him when they know he is capable of doing the things he is accused of. HE is a SOCIOPATH!

Only a sociopath serial murder would continue killing anything in its path without any remorse.
And to you jac about your comment Shawn flipped after the divorce. Ask Jennie Pattons son how it feels to be raised without a mom because some monster like (HANNIBLE LESTER) decided to take another life. The people who really no (HANNIBLE LESTER)no he is like a circus lion that was just turned lose on the streets of Charleston. But in the end u die in jail hopefully long and slow over a long period of time.

But u can never fool all the people all the time. It was ten to one ur favor. But this time one man fighting for what was wright was stronger than ur ten hired hands.

You know, the people that have the REAL information and are not coming forward, need to. This MONSTER has walked as a free man for over 7 years. It is time that he is prosecuted for his horrible crimes. We need closure for the crimes he has committed. I just wish that WV had the Death Penalty. Although maybe even that would be too good for him.

I have known Shawn for most of his life and know for a fact that I have NEVER heard of the above allegations!!! Where did you get your info??? Out of all the things that Shawn has done, Child Molestation was not even close to any of them!

I too know both Monk and Shawn and believe that Monk is way more capable of doing this that Shawn. I believe that Monk did it and Shawn is taking the fall for it.

If everyone is so sure that he did this, then why hasn't he been indicted?

If you knew him so well you would know what he was capable of. The Mother herself accused Shawn of the crime. No one wanted to believe it and now it has come to light that it is the truth. The police have the information and I know that for a fact. And now that child's life is RUINED!! And he went on to just execute people with no feeling at all. I always knew that he had no feelings like normal peole. And now it has been proven. As far as I am concerned, there is no punishment harsh enough for what he has done in his lifetime. We will probably never know all the horrible things he has commited.

When did this "supposedly" happen? Again, I know Shawn very well and most of his life. Did this just "come to light" after he was accused of these murders? I'm sure that a lot of things "come to light" after he was arrested. Why are you the only one that seems to know anything about it?

This is not the place to argue the point and not it did not come to "light" after his arrest. To protect the innocent child he abused it was not shouted from the mountain tops so you might not have known. But believe me, you do NOT know the REAL MONSTER that is sitting in that jail and that is all I will say on that point. I know what I know. and it is not "supposedly". It is Factual. I can give the time, the place, names, everything that is needed, but I will not do it on here to protect innocent people that have been violated and hurt by that MONSTER enough. Sometimes the pople you THINK you know are not the people you KNOW at all. And I have known this MONSTER just about since the day he was born. Shawn Lester is a Sociopath who can hurt people without feeling a thing, and then think he can charm his way right out of any trouble that comes his way. This time I hope they bury him UNDER THE JAIL!!!!!!

Well I would be very interested to know more information. Not only have I known Shawn for most of his life but also his entire family. It just seems very odd that NO ONE has heard anything about this until you posted it on here. When did this supposedly happen. I too have children of my own that Shawn has been around a lot and never did he ever do or say anything out of the way around them.
