Shannon Paulk was vivacious 11-year-old girl who was known for having a heart of gold. She was popular in her neighborhood and was friends with, well, everyone. She's spend her mornings playing with schoolmates and her afternoon speaking with her elderly neighbor. Yet kidneys can be a weakness, especially in someone so young, and Shannon was kidnapped in August 2001. Then she was found dead two months later. For the small town she lived in, this was a shocking and horrible event. Crime just didn't happen in Prattville, Alabama. So what happened to Shannon? Who committed this crime? And why have police been unable to find her killer after nearly 20 years?
