So we left off where Shannon Ryan is brought into custody for kidnapping charges for allegedly dropping Kamdyn off at The Edge Apartments in Miramar. We know that investigators have surveillance and cell phone records of Shannon leaving the Hollywood RaceTrac and going to the apartments in Miramar between 8:15 and 8:38am on July 26th. We also know that there is video footage of Shannon purchasing trash bags, odor eliminator and duct tape. Earlier reports in the media stated that Shannon used Leila’s credit card to make purchases at RaceTrac and Walmart, however, he was in fact using his girlfriend’s card, Christine Lawson – who is the woman he references in the hospital.We are going to fill in some of the blanks with what we know from testimony that was given in last Friday’s hearing. But before we get to that, I want to talk about something that is really bugging me about this case. And that is when police began taking the dumpsters from RaceTrac. They removed them this past Thursday, over 3 weeks after Leila was reported as missing. It seems like a really long time before they start searching dumpsters, doesn’t it?
I just wanted to jump on really quick and give you guys an update on new charges that have been filed against Shannon Ryan in the disappearance of Leila Cavett.CBS is now reporting that in addition to the 2 charges of lying to a federal officer, Shannon Ryan has now been charged with kidnapping.So initially, I didn’t think that Shannon was involved in Leila’s disappearance, but obviously this new evidence says otherwise. And I think its safe to say that we will be seeing more charges that are filed against him in the coming days.
Self-proclaimed witch doctor, Shannon Ryan has been arrested in connection with the disappearance of Leila Cavett. After Thursday’s press conference, we started to see a lot of chatter about Shannon Ryan.Shannon says that he knew Leila from when they both lived in Alabama. He said he knew her for about a year and that both she and Kamdyn lived with him briefly when Leila had nowhere to go.
