Lisa Shuttlesworth Aikens South Carolina: Missing and Victim of Intimate Partner Violence

Lisa Shuttleworth, 34 the mother of two was supposed to pick up her son, Ryan, at the bus stop after school that afternoon, but in her stead an older family friend was there to meet him. Returning Ryan to his home, they found it locked and no sign of Lisa, although her car, along with a car she had borrowed, were still in her driveway. After Lisa’s parents were called they all entered the house and found no signs of struggle, and the only thing missing was her purse. It looked as if Lisa planned to return shortly, even a pot of tea was on the stove, her jewelry on the kitchen counter.

Lisa was a single mother, an excellent mother according to family sources, her two children knew they were loved, well taken care of, and that she would never leave them of her own free will. So what happened to Lisa?

This past weekend the CUE Center for Missing Persons, a national organizations that has been assisting families of missing persons since 1994, held their annual "Road To Remember Tour." Each year they go around the county highlighting and bringing attention to case's like Lisa Shuttleworth. This is one of the case's we will be featuring and working on in the coming weeks. In my opinion Lisa was a victim of Intimate partner violence resulting in homicide.

So sad, i'm praying for her safe return.... a tragedy that an EAA would have made a difference, at least given a lead to go by. It is really sad that so many lives are lost and so little has been done in regards to law enforcement protecting women. Until now, law enforcement could sweep these cases under the rug. Not its time for some accountability. Thank you Susan.
