Mother of slain man holds on to hope
Published: 05/05/2008

TO THE EDITOR:

I am Gwendolyn Sanders, the mother of Shaun Sanders who was killed Nov. 6, 2006. It still remains a mystery to me after 18 months. I am still holding on to hope with strong belief that things will come full circle in this case.

But at this present time there has been no new evidence in this case. I, as a mother, still plead today that if anyone has any information about this case, please call and inform the necessary parties involved in this case. Please be advised that I am not writing this letter to point fingers at anyone who is or was involved with this case. Neither was it written to say justice was not done.

But this letter was written to ease my heart and mind. I am still deeply grieving a year and eight months later because of the sudden death of my son.

I am still holding on with hope and pray that this case will be solved so that my spirit can be at peace with the hope of knowing this too shall pass.

Does anyone know how Shaun died? I don't remember when this happened and can't find anything online.

His mother said that he was killed.

I was sorry to here you wouldn't post the information you have. But someone else may have better information than you.

He is dead but he was not killed. As for having better information, I don't think they could get any better than what I have. The forensic evidence backs it up.

This part is just as a joke, pigs do fly, we have helicopters and planes.

Thanks, Bonzi, but I have no desire to communicate with smokintaz via pm. If he can't post what he knows here, then he has no business telling it to me privately.

Shaun's mother made a plea to the public. I don't know what the problem is with smokintaz posting what he knows about it here, but that's his perogative.

I know the Burks family and the Minniefield family, I delt with them for many years. Some of the things they were up to I will not post as it could hurt any current or on-going investigation. That is why I will not post on here.

This is about the Saunders family.

I would not want you to post anything that would harm an on-going investigation. I do hope it is current and on-going.

The mother asked for help, and there just isn't anything to be found about Shauns's death online, no newspaper articles in the archives, nothing. That's strange. Can you say if it is a Bowie county case?

Gwendolyn is a Burks and the case was investigated in the city.
