    This is so strange. I hope the police will find out that someone did this to this mother and son. I don’t understand how this could be a murder/suicide!

    He will be missed from all of us. He and I graduated together in 1988. It is really hard to believe that he is really gone. Rest in Peace Shawn, with no pain, sufferings.

    Why his mother murdered her own son then herself end up. Must be something wrong before their life were ended up. Seekgeo? You already know to deal with his problem or his mother’s responsible.

    Anyone if you know him to communication earlier week before their death is really shocked in Coloradro’s deaf community.
    You should talk with police if you know more details with your best friend’s death is not expected. If you believe that he is not deserved to death. Why not you reported to Police before it’s happened? Think about and figure out to getting straight and the specifically since he was victims before he died.. No one report to police if he have hard time with his mother?

    REMEMBER: NO one knows anything until investigation is finalized, please do not make any assumptions or speculations. There are a lot of feelings involved and we need to respect individuals involved. Please stop making up theories, it upsets me so much to see people accuse or make assumptions, because it is wrong and hurts others. Remember Deaf Culture, very easy to misunderstand and separate fact from opinion/fiction. Careful what you type/say..

    Shawn was my cousin and he indeed died as a result of a murder suicide, my Aunt killed him, set the house on fire and then turned the gun on herself…we are unable to understand why, I grew up very close to Shawn, carried him around on my hip, played with him and attended his wedding etc… I am only now starting to see how much he was loved by everyone, he was a special man and will be missed by all who loved him. Thanks everyone for the kind words. Funerals will be held on Friday…

    I am saddened very much to learn of Shawn’s passing. I have seen him once since he moved to Colorado after his wedding. My good friend Kate who lives in Missouri had invited me to many social events where Shawn would go. He will be missed. It is very sad for a person to take the life of another person, especially family. Shawn was so young. This is awful.

    So tragic a mother killed her own son. That is crazy. Sad, we would never fi d a good photopgrahy as good as he is. Is nice to have a deaf person to communicate especially trusted a person a real business job. He was a strong and he keep his privates pictures between the deaf and photography. That sometime will never be missed. R.I.P. Shawn god will take care of you and family. The reason his mother did that us because it has to do with money or she did not want him to give money I his dad or something rumors saying that if someone died. Life insurances is killing people because people are struggling with no job. Sadly people do that just for nobeeason and jealousy is one of the biggest thing to the world. God said never hate other family and jealous to Yr family. So sad!!!!!:( but we all have to be strong and move on with Yr life..
