Unsolved Murder Spotlight: Shannon Paulk

Shannon Paulk was 11 years old when she disappeared from her trailer park in Prattville, Ala., on August 16, 2001. For two hopeful months, Shannon’s family and friends clung to the possibility that the young girl may be found alive. But that hope was shattered when rabbit hunters discovered Shannon’s body in a forest 17 miles north of town. More than a decade later, the case remains unsolved.
