Case 111

Shauna Howe

*** Content Warning: child victim, child sexual assault ***

In 1992, the children of Oil City, Pennsylvania were excited as Halloween approached. But when 11-year-old Shauna Howe fails to return home after a church Halloween party on October 27, the typically festive atmosphere quickly turns to one of anxiety and fear. 

Two days later, Shauna’s body is found near a waterhole in the woods. Instead of trick or treating, Oil City residents hold a candlelit vigil as they question who among them could be capable of such an unspeakable crime.
