Something about the crime scene just didn’t sit right with investigators.

“This was not a stranger,” says Amy Meredith, who was an assistant district attorney at the time of the murder. “This was not a stranger killing.”

Once investigators dug deeper, they learned their hunches were correct. It was not a random robbery but rather a plot involving the Shaughnessys’ son Nicolas and his wife, Jaclyn Edison, to have his parents killed. Police had evidence that included text messages between them, which appeared to be a discussion about paying for a hit. Soon after, Nick Shaughnessy and two alleged hit men were charged with capital murder.
