Shawn Skelton Has A Strange Desire

April 30, 2009 at 4:53 am by  

Seattle, WashingtonCraigslist: a network of online communities featuring classified ads ranging from help wanted ads to erotic services, with a lot of everything in between. The website has been popping up in news articles as consistently as Myspace. We have featured a handful of Craigslist stories here at the Dreamin’ Demon and I have another odd story to add to the collection–the story of Shawn Skelton and his strange desire.

Shawn is a 24-year-old man who lives in Kent, Washington. He recently made a post to the Casual Encounters section at Craigslist, looking for ‘serious inquiries’ only. Shawn wanted to hook up with someone for sex, someone who wanted to be killed afterward. But, he’d be more than willing to kill an ‘unwilling participant’ too. That’s right, Shawn, cover your bases. And what does he ask for in return? Cash. He wanted to be paid for nookie and murder. The guy is retarded. Has to be. A Craigslist employee spotted the ad and called police.

An undercover vice detective responded to Shawn’s ad. The two exchanged about 30 e-mails over the next several days in which Shawn described what sex acts he was going to perform on her before he killed her, and he may have alluded to the manner in which she would die. The two agreed to meet at a Seattle motel. At the last second, Shawn doubled the asking price to $2,000. The meeting was set for Monday morning. When Shawn knocked on the motel door, he was taken down and arrested. A search revealed that Shawn had come prepared…he was in possession of a knife, a heavy chain, and two long shoe strings. Shawn later confessed to the attempted murder and said he needed help. According to investigators, Shawn told them, ‘this activity excited him and admitted that he needed counseling and could not control his urges.’ Shawn is now controlling his urges behind bars…he was booked into jail for investigation of attempted murder. Because of the nature of the offense, bond was set at $1 million. Shawn has one prior, for indecent exposure.

    Death

    The pain and the suffering are endless…Mood: Pfffftttttt…

    Okayyyyy. Seems he needs to research more.
    Serial Killers usually just kind of go get a victim.
    By advertising for a victim you will most likely be
    kicked out of the “Crazy Sex Murder Guy Club”
    Hopefully this young person will be locked up in a
    nice cozy cell ……………….oh say for LIFE.

  • CassieMomma

    FRrrraaaaaeeeeekkkk.  It says he thinks he needs help……..ya think?????

  • Senna

    I’m sure on some planet his idea of advertising for a victim is good…his main problem is, this is Earth!

  • http://www.myspace.com/justdazin So Jaded

    You know, as stupid as he is, I’m glad he was stupid enough to use craigslist and get caught. Thank gawd he didn’t just pick up an ‘unwilling’ victim at the local Wal-Mart.

  • JessicaR

    I typically just like a shower after sex…I’ll pass on the death.

  • Wicked Doll

    OMFG!  He’s a parent? Jeezus, thank goodness he’s stupid and got caught.  Something tells me that baby would have ended up as some sort o freaky ass sacrificial offering.  *shudder*

    Thank goodness he’s so stupid, because he’s obviously very unbalanced and dangerous.  At least now he’s been caught and they can get him off the streets — hopefully for a long time.

    He is now being charged with conspiracy to commit murder…

    King County prosecutors today charged a Kent man with conspiracy to commit second-degree murder, alleging he advertised on the online Craigslist personals that he wanted to have sex with someone before killing them.

    Shawn Tyler Skelton, 24, is being held in the King County Jail with bail set at $1 million. Arraignment was set for May 13. If convicted he could face more than 13 years in prison, prosecutors said.

    [...]

    Skelton had been looking for a consensual arrangement, but the detective proposed something different, asking if he would be willing to discuss murdering someone, the documents say. Skelton agreed and negotiated a $2,000 fee, at the same time alluding to what he wanted to do to the nonexistent victim, charging papers said.

    [...]
    A woman who answered the phone at Skelton’s home Tuesday and identified herself as the man’s girlfriend and the mother of his child said he is innocent.

    “He didn’t do anything,” the woman said. “If he was doing anything, he was trying to figure out a way to get money. He had no intent to go through with it.”

    She said she read some of the e-mails between police and her boyfriend and she said the police “definitely entrapped him.” She said the issue of payment was brought up by officers, not by her boyfriend.

    “They offered him money and we’re broke, living at our grandmother’s house,” she said.

    “He actually has a lot, lot, lot of mental issues that need to be dealt with … But he’s not really the person they’re making him out to be,” she said. “He’s a good person, an amazing father, and I love him and support him.”

    King County prosecutor spokesman Dan Donohoe, asked whether he was concerned about possible entrapment issues arising from the detective proposing the murder while Skelton had initially sought a willing participant, said simply, “No.”
