Samson Shelton, the Missouri gym teacher who was arrested for breaking the neck of 17-year-old student Ashley Reeves and leaving her to die in the woods, hasn’t learned his lesson. Apparently, the local girls haven’t either…
SMITHTON – Just a few hours after being released Monday from the St. Clair County Jail, Samson “Sam” R. Shelton pleaded on the telephone with a teenage girlfriend to visit him at his mother’s house, where he is confined until trial.
Tuesday, the 18-year-old Columbia girl visited Shelton at the house just south of Smithton, said Lt. Steve Johnson, lead investigator for the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department. Shelton is charged with kidnapping and attempting to murder 17-year-old Ashley Reeves of Millstadt.
The Columbia girl’s parents called the sheriff’s department to complain, Johnson said. They were told their daughter’s visit to Shelton’s mother’s home did not violate conditions of the $80,000 bond set by St. Clair County Circuit Judge John Baricevic.
“It is not a violation, but it is certainly a concern,” Johnson said. “The parents called us, and they were worried.”
Besides being confined to his mother’s home, Shelton must wear an electronic monitoring anklet, Baricevic ordered.
Why this scumbag is out on bail is beyond me anyway. And ladies, if a man confesses to breaking a girl’s neck, it’s probably a good idea not to go to his house.
Shelton’s MySpace has since been removed.
