Important update in the horrifying case of mother whose decapitated body was found months later in a plastic container with a head

THREE men were arrested this week, more than 16 years after a woman’s decapitated body was found floating in a river.

Shanan Lynn Read’s decomposed body was found in a plastic container in Puget Sound on January 15, 2006, months before her head was later discovered in the same area.

After years of working on the investigation, the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office, along with law enforcement agencies across the country, has arrested three men in California, Florida and Pennsylvania.

Authorities said a fourth suspect in the case has since died.

Read, who was 33 when discovered, was killed in August 2005, investigators have found.

Five months before her discovery, she was hit in the head with a metal club in a Seattle apartment, police said.

She was then taken to a cabin in Port Orchard where she died,” King 5 reported.

The suspects then doused her in chemicals to speed up the decomposition process for months before disposing of the body, investigators said.

“This is one of the most brutal cases I’ve seen in 30 years of work here,” Lieutenant Ken Dickins told King 5.

Police suspect stolen money may have led to Read’s death.

Michael Thomason, who is not one of the suspects, helped dispose of her body and was later convicted of unlawfully disposing of human remains.

Authorities said the case never officially went cold because they identified four suspects through interviews and by following various leads.

Over the past 10 months, investigators have been able to confirm the involvement of all suspects in the events surrounding Read’s tragic death.

A 39-year-old man was arrested Monday in Philadelphia, while a 34-year-old was taken into custody in Riverside, California, and a 42-year-old in Sarasota, Florida.

All three face first-degree murder charges and are being held on $10 million bail, King 5 reported.

The suspects’ identities are being withheld until they are formally charged.

“No human being ever deserved to be treated the way this woman was treated,” said Coast Guard Investigations Special Agent Jimmy Kilgallen.

“No mother, no daughter, nobody.”
