Almost 5 years later, Shay Pendleton, an Arizona mother continues to grieve over the unsolved mystery and the death of her son in Goodyear, Arizona. The case has not been solved, and the issue didn’t even go through the Silent Witness program. This is an unsolved mystery with regard to the Goodyear Police Department. You can hear Shay’s story here via the Lou Show.
Scrolling through the photos of her son — Jered, it was difficult to try to pick one of him for this story because I have a teenage son, too. It ails my heart to even think of losing one of my sons. When you speak to Shay about her son who is no longer with us, you can see her pain when she speaks to you about it. The pain you see and hear in her voice is smothering and suffocating. It’s almost as if you want to look the other way because the pain is that unbearable to see in her heart and her eyes. She’s a good-hearted woman doing the best that she can in the most difficult circumstances.
While going through the photos of Jered’s young life …. you will find he is your typical American boy playing in
the beach sand, riding a bike, playing with puppies and enjoying himself at birthday parties. His bright smile lit up the sky.
To this day, when I speak to her … I sense a hole within her soul she yearns to be completed. I wonder how long it will take for the Goodyear Police Department to help this grieving mother?
Please join Shay Pendleton at a vigil to remember her son this upcoming Monday, January 28, 2013.
Here are the details below:
When: Monday, 28 January 2013
Time: 6 pm – 9 pm
Where: 175 N 145th Ave., Building E
Goodyear, AZ 85338
Why: The Goodyear City council is having a meeting this night. Shay Pendleton needs support and a presence there to remember the unsolved mystery of her son, Jered Pendleton. The citizens of Goodyear, AZ, should also be informed with who is on the Goodyear City council in light of the upcoming City Council elections this February.
Most in the city council, including the Mayor, knew about what happened to Jered on April 6th of 2008 and not one of them chose to do the right thing by encouraging discipline towards the officers involved in his death and subsequent cover up. I am calling all journalists and TV crews to come cover this vigil.
On a side note: Both Wally Campbell and Joe Pazillo are two city council members that should probably be elected OUT of office.
Please support this grieving mother!
Please bring a candle and light it and stand beside her. Unfortunately, I will not be able to make the candle light vigil (since I will be out of the State), but I am asking my audience to show some love to this woman who has been put through hell and back.
I believe music has the ability to heal … and this song below by Chris Taylor of San Antonio, Texas, struck a chord and made me think of this special grieving mother.
so send the rain, send the angels
move the mountain, we’re now strangers
send some healing, send some daylight
wish I could say it’s good to be alive
there’s no light in my head
there’s no light in my head
there’s no light in my head… now that you’re gone
