Thank you,

Interesting question. I asked the same question 4 years ago on here and the blog went on for 3 years. I was a close friend of Shannon Agofsky and a student of Ms. Short. I have talked to lots of people over the years. Some who were involved directly in the case and others that just had opinions. I have had people warn me that I should be very careful and concerned for my personal saftey for asking questions. It has been 22 years since the robbery. Very few people are fully convinced that Joe and Shannon were truly guilty. Noel has always been and still is a center of criminal activity. Everone has heard the rumors of the three P's on Noel. Drug trafficing, daughters of Law enforcement officers being murdered, mysterious suicides, and so on.

Here are some questions I have always had.
1. Why would local people search out blueprints of the bank? You could walk in and understand the layout in 10 seconds.

2. Where is the evidence? There is nothing concrete.

3. Why didnt the FBI question Shannon's associates?

I could go on and on but what is the point.

Yes I did, but I only attended one year in 88-89, then I moved to colorado. Did you live in Lanagan for a long time. I moved back in 1991, and I worked at Jose O' Malleys in Noel before I moved back to colorado

I knew Joe and Shannon, though not well. Joe was very quiet, minded his own business. Shannon was heavy into martial arts when a guy I knew named Tom Wright attended the Hwa Rang Do studio in Noel. He loved to fight. But I don't know if murder was up his alley. I think my former friend Tom coulda whooped his rear though. Tom has several black belts and, like Shannon, breathes martial arts.

Dan Short was my grandma's brother. I was Only 4 years old when this happen. I don't know that much but the family stories heard through the years. I don't know who really did this or did not do it! however someone did. And the proof that was Dan Short had been taken from his home and murderd for 70,000 bucks. I would say if the 2 brothers did do it. then there right where they belong. heard shannon also killed a man in prison. maybe a case of protecting himself. but maybe not!!!!!!!!

"Very few people are fully convinced that Joe and Shannon were truly guilty."

Upon what do you base THAT opinion?

And in answer to number two... a fingerprint on the ducttape, preserved between the layers wrapped on Dan Short, is pretty damned good evidence. And the hoist that was tied to the chair belonged to a friend of mine, and had been borrowed by the Agofsky's.

IT AMAZES ME ANYONE COULD DEFEND SHANNON AND JOE, THEY ARE RUTHLESS SCUM OF THE EARTH. THEY NEED TO BE BEATEN AND TIED TO A CHAIR AND DROPPED OVER #10 BRIDGE ALSO AND DIE THE HORRIBLE DEATH THEY GAVE DAN FOR NO REASON.. AND FOR THE WOMEN WHO HAVE SINCE BECOME PENPALS WITH SHANNON HOW PATHETIC AND STUPID ARE YOU WOMEN. TO EVEN WANNA BE FRIENDS WITH SOMEONE LIKE THAT, DISGUSTING PEOPLE YOU MUST BE.. I AGREE WITH DANS BROTHER KILL EM STOP WASTING OUR TAX DOLLARS ON SCUM LIKE THEM

So let me get this straight. It makes sense to you that prints were ONLY found on one piece of water logged duct tape? Add to that the fact that one piece was found by a relative of the chief of police? He just stumbled upon it several weeks after the crime? I'm sorry this just really smells to me.

Curious, I've gotta hand it to you. Your tenacity is impressive. 4 years later and you're still on topix obsessing about this case.

After several years I have come to the conclusion the Agofsky's are guilty. How sad. I went to school with both of them.
