BEACON TRANSCRIPT – Sonoma County deputies recently arrested a 39-year-old survivalist and charged him with murder. A Sheriff’s Office spokesperson declared that newly-discovered evidence linked the survivalist to the 2005 Jenner beach slayings. The individual’s motives remain unknown.
Survivalist Suspected of Killing His Brother and Other People
Last week, Sonoma County deputies arrested Shaun Gallon, a 39-year-old survivalist. Gallon, who makes a living by hunting in the woods, was declared a person of interest in the 2004 case of Lindsay Cutshall and Jason Allen, two Christian camp counselors.
According to the authorities, Cutshall and Allen, who were engaged to be married, decided to spend the summer at the Christian camp near Jenner.
All evidence retrieved from the crime scene pointed to Gallon, a lone survivalist with an impressive criminal record.
Based on the evidence, Gallon followed the couple to a remote beach and shot them while they were sleeping.
Cutshall and Allen’s bodies were found after a couple of days. Both were in their sleeping bags when Gallon opened fire.
The ballistics report suggests that the survivalist used a .45-caliber hunting rifle to murder Allen and his betrothed.
Gallon’s police interview revealed far too little. The authorities declared that the gunman’s motive remains unknown.
However, given Gallon’s past and the evidence found at the crime scene, the authorities have enough to incriminate the survivalist.
According to police records, Gallon was arrested in March 2017, being suspect of gunning down his younger brother. Due to the lack of evidence, the individual was released from prison.
Gallon’s criminal past includes bombing, driving under the influence, poaching, resisting arrest, burglary, and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon.
If he’s found guilty, Gallon might be sentenced to death or life in prison without parole. Authorities declined to comment on the new evidence.
