On the morning of the 23rd of July 2002 in North Carolina, 15 year old Elizabeth Shannon grabbed a gun and shot her father, David Shannon dead. Authorities were about to uncover dark secrets including sex and jealousy.
Joan and David were swingers who hosted sex parties for couples and in 2001 David met a man online called Jeffrey Wilson. David was happy for Joan to have sex with Jeffrey and others as long as no emotional connection occurred. However, many weeks later Joan was seeing Jeffrey behind David’s back and even declared she loved him. David did start to realise and wanted them to stop seeing each other and even leave the swinging way of life. This angered Joan who then hired her daughter to kill him.
In 2005, Joan Shannon was sentenced to life and Elizabeth Shannon received 25 - 30 years
