Product description

Product Description

The gray ranch along Third Avenue in the sleepy Midwestern town of less than 400 people was the recurring site of screaming, mad chaos and horrific domestic violence.

Then one day, abusive husband Scott Shanahan was gone. Some thought he packed his bags and left town. Weeks passed. Months went by. Still no sign of the volatile wife beater. But what really happened to him was so shocking and so unbelievable that even grizzled, long-time law enforcement officials were aghast by the sight and awful smell. The town wondered why Dixie Shanahan managed to live with her husband’s rotting body inside her master bedroom — for fourteen months.




"This fascinating story will leave you asking yourself one question, was the punishment that Dixie received in her case justified? Highly recommended for all true crime readers" -- RJ Parker, Bestselling True Crime Author

About the Author

A native of Plainfield, Illinois, John Ferak's first true crime book, BLOODY LIES: A CSI SCANDAL IN THE HEARTLAND (Kent State University Press) chronicled the tragic farmhouse killings of Nebraskans Wayne and Sharmon Stock and the ensuing CSI scandal that sent prominent CSI director David Kofoed to prison. Since 2012, Ferak has worked as an award-winning investigative team editor for Gannett Wisconsin Media, based at The Post-Crescent in Appleton, Wisconsin.
