The profile pic is of my brother Shawn Allison when he was in the Marine Corp. On Nov. 20, 2000, Shawn's body was found in LaPine, OR, near Bend, OR, with a gun shot to his head, and my life changed forever. A person must continue on with their life, and I am having a pretty good one, raising a decent, kind, successful, son of my own and continuing with my daily life. However, Shawn's death is never far from my thoughts. With no police investigation and too many different stories, lies, weird and creepy happenings and unanswered questions (including having a law officer tell us he was shot in the middle of the room, which we thought true, and then being unable to explain how a man with half his head gone could get to the couch and pose himself with his feet on top the gun), I refuse to accept the designation of suicide. When the local law enforcement can prove suicide, beyond a shadow of a doubt, then I will accept it. After 10 years of trying to shut us up and shut us down, I deserve proof. Until then, I am more convinced every day that it was indeed murder. A "simple" suicide would not garner, not only the lack of sympathy, but the overt attempts to stop us from finding out what really happened. Who works that hard to cover up a suicide?
