Jana Shearer

Jana Shearer appears to have been the victim of one of the more abominable crimes of recent times. Her lover, Christopher Lee McCuin not only murdered her but dismembered her and was found cooking her ear. Jana Shearer's friends are of course shocked by the whole affair:

At nearly 6-feet tall with long blonde hair, green eyes and a bounce in her walk, Jana Shearer turned heads.

“She looked like a skinny Barbie, except with a goofy little grin,” said friend and neighbor Jennifer Landfair.

Outside Shearer’s Whitehouse apartment Sunday friends consoled each other, half expecting for the 21-year-old to come prancing out of her apartment in 4-inch heels carrying an oversized tote bag.

“She never left home without her makeup bag, and she didn’t have it with her that night,” Landfair said.

Smith County Sheriff’s Office investigators said Shearer’s boyfriend, 25-year-old Christopher Lee McCuin abducted her Friday evening from the apartment she shared with her mother.

Saturday morning investigators found Shearer’s mutilated body inside a brick home in the 400 block of Princess Place — parts of her flesh were carved out and an ear was found on the stove boiling in a pot of water.

Friends were sickened as the learned of her violent death.

Unsurprisingly, he's been charged with murder:

A MAN slaughtered his lover then sliced and diced her body in a cannibalistic cooking ritual. Christopher Lee McCuin bizarrely called police after the filleting and cooking stage to confess. The 25-year-old told an emergency dispatcher he had killed Jana Shearer, 21, and was boiling her body parts at his mother's home. When authorities arrived at the home, they found Shearer's mutilated body, one ear boiling in a pot of water on the stove and human flesh sitting on a plate on the kitchen table. Police said it was unclear whether McCuin consumed any part of Shearer's body - but it appeared he meant to. "We cannot prove that he did (eat her). He was either going to, had been or led us to think that he was doing it," Smith County Sheriff J.B. Smith said. Her death and mutilation was apparently the beginning of a crime spree that included McCuin allegedly stabbing the boyfriend of his estranged wife and breaking into a business. The stabbing victim is in critical condition. McCuin was charged with murder. He was being held on a $2 million bond.

And capital murder at that:

Friends say Shearer had planned a “girls’ night” on Friday. McCuin was seen at the apartment complex waiting for his girlfriend to come home from a day of shopping. Shearer’s friend, Amy Gage commented, “He came over and talked to us, waiting for Jana to get back. That’s what’s so weird. He seemed so nice.” Gage had seen the couple arguing that evening, but she couldn’t see anything dangerous in the situation. “He hugged and kissed and played with my kids. That scares me. Its like something just snapped.”

The following morning McCuin called Shearer’s mother. He repeatedly told her that he killed Jana. Jennifer Landfair was visit at the time and took the phone, “I said, ‘what are you talking about?’ There was no remorse in his voice. He said, ‘she’s dead. I killed her, she’s dead…I didn’t believe him.”

Christopher McCuin will be in court today facing a capital murder charge

Why are there only pictures of the perpatrator and none of the victim? Could it be because the victim was a beautiful White woman. We would not want to make a warning about the danger of mixed relationships would we.

What is the danger? Beautiful intelligent children? Or do you mean that all Black men intend to murder and eat their beautiful white spouses? And what "race" should a biracial child be "bread" with when he or she is older? Or should they just be castrated?

I'll say what everyone should be thinking. You lay with dogs, and the dog turns on you and bites (in this case eats), what do you expect?

The black statistics on rape and assault are astronomical, far worse than whites and Asians. Their IQ's are one standard deviation below that of whites, or an average of only 85. Dating blacks puts you at great risk of abuse and increases your chances for having cognitively below average babies.

Love your own race whits. Africa looks the way it does because blacks can't do any better. Lowering yourselves to their level is a recipe for future misery. The data are already in.

"For all you uneducated idiots evil is evil it doesnt matter wat your skin color is!!"

That's like saying that a broken car is a broken car so we shouldn't examine reliability statistics when determining which model be a good buy and which might not be. "Evil" of this type happens much more frequently among blacks. It's as simple as that.

"Beautiful intelligent children?"

The average IQ of American whites is 100. The average IQ of American blacks is 85. The average IQ of black/white children is 91. So, no, the children aren't "intelligent." The average is, not surprisingly, almost halfway between the two for each race. That means having babies with blacks will produce dumber children. Even if the black parent is intelligence, regression to the mean will still produce lower IQ children through many generations.

Blacks also have smaller brains on average as proven by several recent studies using MRI technology. Yes, the reason why blacks have never done as well in areas of intellectual endeavor really IS because they are dumber, on average. It's called evolution people. Evolution does not act to produce identical results among all populations. Deal with it.

Just a damn mudshark-good riddance-when will white women learn to leave these subhuman negroids alone-I bet her parents are real happy now.

Im not going to even stoop down to the level of you idiots, I mean who are you really to pass judgement on any one you are NO ONE. My kids are beautiful and intelligent so who cares what your stupid "statistics" say. For DJ and Rick what you say and how you feel is something you will have to take up with your God. Because he's the one and only one that can pass judement. I will be praying for you every night!!!

For all of you blaming this incident on being black, you are stupid. these types of incidents are not prevalent in the black community. the man was crazy and mental issues don't choose a race. what happened to her sucks because it should have never happened but to say that it is because he is black and that blacks are all violent is a racist statement, and if everyone in the world were to think that way than everyone would be no where. blacks have despite what you have been taught have made amazing discoveries in the world (but of course never get the credit for it). it is possible for these incidents to happen in any race (have you not heard of jeffrey dommer and hannibal lecter...and for your information they were not black) everyone is vulnerable to this type of crime, it has no race.

Posted by: shabooty.com | Mar 13, 2008 7:52:50 PM

Lol, Lol, Lol! I love it when this happens. Each and every grisly time, I lol. I'm sure her parents were real open minded about the relationship she was carrying on, and were all behind Obama for president and anything else that they could do to make themselves feel like real progressive, understanding, educated open minded white folks. "We'll support her in whatever she wants to do." they told each other as they sipped sangria together and watched Bernie Mac shows on their expensive european leather couch. Welp, SURPRISE!! Hope you don't mind spending quality time with her now that she's underground because of all that understanding you had going on. Be thankful that the mudder didn't breed with him before he slaughtered her. Goodnight, sweet princess, I hope you enjoy the long sleep.

First of all coming from Jana's "black friend" all of you are changing the focus of how beautiful my friend Jana was and instead of charishing a life, you want to change this into a race thing. For as long as I knew Jana all she ever dated was black men, she just so happen to run into the wrong one. This had nothing to do with race. This was the case of a good PERSON meeting a MONSTER! Every race has bad apples. So for all of you who are changing the focus of the issue. SCREW YOU

What the hell! I just read about this story and Jana was so beautiful. I am white and don't understand anything about this race thing. Let me remind you all that most psychopaths & serial killers are White Men! Do you not watch CourTV, A&E, MSNBC or 48 Hours Mystery. This girl had everything in the world to live for and from what I have read, a great personality.
My heart goes out to her family & friends.

The nigger lover is dead thank god. Talking about it doesnt change a thing. Everytime a story like this comes out, it just shows me that there is still justice in the world. Die all you race traitor whores.

I live in Texas I never heard about this until now. Any good reason why this news was suppressed? White women with black men is always a life of trash. Black men are sex addicts, violent, and impulsive. Any white woman that I have ever know that slept with them were cheated on constantly. Their has to be some biological reason for this because they all do it. Even "nice" ones. Sleeping with niggers makes so many victims in the white woman's family because young girls in the faimily get used to the idea of having niggers around and try out niggers too. Especially if there is a "gift" of a child there is no going back to a decent white man. The white grandparents are usually the ones stuck raising the mullato. How come these freaking women can't realize the reason they're so good in bed is that they sleep with a new woman every week??? When a white man does this he's a sex addict that needs help, but for niggers it's normal. Don't give me this Jeffrey Dahmer BS. The reason most serial killers are white is because they have to have high intelligence and organization skills to pull that off. Not something to be proud of but there are hardly any serial killers & niggers kill in every city every day of the year.

And you nigger lovers out there don't bother praying for me. I'm not religious and living with niggers and nigger lovers in heaven would be my idea of hell anyway!

so i really don't give a fuck what color a person is, but facts are facts. black folks have smaller skulls, sooo....smaller brains! oh and what's with the majority of prison peoples that are black? are they all innocent? people tend to have sympathy for the mentally retarded... now, you people that go to church and pray...do me and the world a favor, kill yourself, be sure to have someone put it up on the web. suicide's always a great watch. personally, i understand that the majority of humans need to be put down, dead. you're polluting this world with your filth, i don't associate myself with any organizations...but i'm pro green, you're all scum to me, no matter the race

Today marks the 1st yr on earth without my friend Jana Lauren Shearer. The sweetest person that anyone could've ever known. I love you still, and your memory will never fade away. There isn't a day that goes by that you are not thought of. This year has been very hard on your family and friends, but I know that you are in a safe place now. Away from all harm and danger, and I know that you are up there in heaven watching over all of us. I can remember so clearly us running toward each other me screaming "My Jana Banana" and you yelling "My Tanisha Wisha". I love you sis!
