My Sweet Son Shane Gaspard

by Gilda Melancon
(Cut Off Louisiana USA)

My son Shane Gaspard was murdered on Christmas Day 2012 I got the call at about 11:40 am my son was working in brazil for the last 2 1/2 years he was divorced from his wif of 24 years they had 3 children together
while he was in brazil he meet a Brazillian woman who he married in Feb.2012 on Christmas they were at a family Christmas party someone at that party killed my son
police even think it could be the wife it was her sister that called me and told me my son was dead then her husband came on the phone an told my daughter to send $15000. then they would send my son body back to us they wanted the money in the wife's banking Acct. and if I didn't send it bay the end of the next day that they wife would bury him
then I called my local sheriff and he help with us to call the US consulate in brazil they said that they would send all information & price to me not to send the family any money
so I did send the consulate the money got my son body back so he could be put to rest
the wife in brazil also went to ATM in brazil and took money out of an Acct. my son had at a bank in Louisiana that was only on his name because he paid his child support and any extra things the children needed
the wife in brazil mows tells police that she took the money 2 hrs. after he was dead because she needed to hire a lawyer well now she has two lawyers why if you are not guilty of a crime would you need a lawyer
I just can not believe that their are such Evil people I could not even kill an animal
now I can not get over that I will never hear my son voice or see his handsome face again I don't sleep at night I just want justice for my Son

Miss you my friend
by: Claudio

Last week I was looking for Shane in Itajaí and I could not believe in what happened to him...I can't believe he is dead! I am so sad about this, he was a good person and a very good friend. I miss him a lot.
I spoke to his wife by phone and she told that just saw him when he was already dead. I had cancer and left Santa Catarina to treat myself. I was Radio Operator at one of the Candies boats...actually he helped me to get in the company. In feburary of 2012 I got a call from him, he invited me to his marriage, he was so happy, I could not tell him that I was so sick to drive...then I drove four hours to see them. After that we just had "e-mails talking" .

Your son
by: Kate

This is a horrible tragety
I am so sorry you had to
Endure this terrible situation.
Losing your son is hard enough,
I lost my son Nov 17,2012 and I
Am still in such grief! To have to
Endure is so hard. I hope it helps
To know we are all on here in the
Same hurtful sorrowful struggle of
Going on without our loves.
A son is a special gift of love from God.
My heart goes out to you.

Gilda I am sorry for your loss of your son. What a terrible tragedy. No mother should have to bury her son in these cruel circumstances. It will be a harder grief for you because there are no answers for any closure to your son's death in mysterious circumstances.
The best you can do for yourself is to talk to a grief counsellor who will allow you the time and space to grieve and unburden yourself from this senseless death for whatever reasons. Also your 3 grandchildren will be suffering the loss of their father. So all round there is a family who is suffering greatly from this loss.
