Who Are Shad Thyrion Parents?
Shad Thyrion the boyfriend and victim of Taylor Schabusiness was born to Tara Pakanich and Michael Thyrion on September 7th, 1997 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. He died on 23 February 2022.
According to a criminal complaint that local news outlet WBAY was able to obtain, a resident of the residence called the police on February 23 after discovering a decapitated head in a bucket.
When police arrived at the site, they descended the basement steps where they discovered the head still covered by a towel and resting in a black bucket on the floor. They also noticed “what appeared to be dried blood on a nearby mattress.” A storage bag that had been used to store the torso’s top was discovered after a more thorough examination of the home.
At a nearby house, Taylor, who is thought to be the last person to have seen the 25-year-old victim alive, was discovered. According to the complaint, her clothes were covered in dried blood, and when authorities searched her truck, they discovered a crock pot box containing other human body parts, “including legs.”
Taylor remarked, “That is a good question,” in response to the police’s inquiry about what had occurred. She was then accused of third-degree sexual assault, first-degree mutilating a corpse, and first-degree deliberate killing.
The complaint claims that Taylor initially used methamphetamine with her victim before killing and dismembering him. They started a sexual interaction, which developed into the usage of chains—which the Green Bay woman described as a dog’s choke collar—and eventually led to violence. She claimed that there were two—one for her and one for him. Taylor claims that she eventually started strangling him with her bare hands. She informed the authorities that she could feel his heart beating even as she strangled him, “so she kept pulling and choking him harder.”
According to the complaint, the woman continued while the man’s face went purple and blood began to spout from his mouth.
After his death, Taylor allegedly played with the corpse for “two to three hours” while using many knives to dismember it, according to the complaint from the prosecution. She claimed in a police interview that a bread knife’s serrated blade “worked the best.” According to the complaint, Taylor informed the police that they would “have fun trying to find all of the organs.”
Her plan had been to bring all of the body parts with her, but, being “paranoid and lazy” as she put it, she left the head behind. “I can’t believe I left the head, though,” she said. Taylor told investigators that she had just gone “crazy,” and blacked out during at least part of the encounter. She asked them “if they knew what it was like to love something so much that you kill it,” according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette.
According to his obituary, Shad attended Howard/Suamico schools as a youngster and then worked at the family enterprises run by his father and grandfather. He loved to go camping, play games, and be with his family.
Shad was a very nice and caring man who frequently put the needs of others ahead of his own. He was a gifted artist and liked to carve wood.
