May 8th was the day Shan’ann broke the news to her husband that she was pregnant. At that stage she’d only been pregnant a week to 10 days. Notice the message captioned to this photo of the dutiful husband getting up early to go to work then mowing the lawn afterwards: #Helovesme.
Did he really? Because that’s the question at the heart of this case. Did he love her and was the unborn child loved and wanted?
Although the video was recorded on May 8th [by the looks of his clothing, beard, glasses and shoes], Shan’ann posted it June 11th. Anything unusual – do you think – in waiting a month after recording the video before posting it to social media? Anything unusual in how soon she knew she was pregnant, and how soon the video was recorded?
If he didn’t love her, would he really have wanted this stuff posted on social media?
It does raise a few potential questions, doesn’t it? How long is the “right” time to announce your pregnancy? The biggest advantage in telling early is getting support early on.
Was he going to give her that support, or was he acting in front the cameras then knowing what he intended to do all along? Was this evidence [in his mind] potentially exonerating him? We know in the Indle King case, there was purposeful acting on camera, appearing caring and considerate, precisely for this purpose of plausible deniability.
If the video was held back, whose decision was it to delay telling everyone?
And if the videos were never posted to social media – not in June or any other time, and Shan’ann never made it to her gynecologist – who would have benefitted from that? Would certain people not have known she was pregnant to begin with if she disappeared prior to the gender reveal party?
The fact that this coverage of her pregnancy was there anyway and she was murdered in spite of it says a lot about his commitment and intentionality. There was an urgency driving him to get rid of her and apparently his children as well, wasn’t there?
