Who is Shawn Grate and what did he do?
Shawn Grate is a convicted serial killer from Marion, Ohio, U.S. He reportedly took the precious lives of five women, namely 43-year-old Stacey Stanley, 29-year-old Elizabeth Griffith, 29-year-old Candice Cunningham, 31-year-old Rebekah Leicy, and 23-year-old Dana Nicole Lowrey.
His heinous killing spree allegedly began in 2006 and lasted until 2016, the year he was convicted. According to the autopsy reports, strangulation was the cause of death for the five victims. Several of his victims were also brutally beaten and stabbed.
In September 2016, he allegedly kidnapped a 38-year-old woman who remains unnamed and is referred to as 'Jane Doe'. Shawn went on to s*xually abuse and assault her for three consecutive days. Fortunately, the victim was able to call 911 and ask for help. Her 911 call helped police arrest the sinister serial killer from the Yellow Ashland house.
