Shannon Cox Bio – Shannon Cox Wiki
Gruesome details have emerged in the case of an Arkansas couple who are both charged with first-degree felony endangerment of a minor.
Shannon Cox is 48 years old.
DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
According to an affidavit filed in the Circuit Court of Boone County, which people obtained, Shannon Cox, 48, was arrested early last month after he used a chop saw to cut off his leg in front of his 5-year-old daughter after her mother, Sandy Cox, 30, left her at home.
On Tuesday, Aug. 2, Boone County Sheriff’s officers responded to reports of a man with an amputated leg when they found Cox lying naked in front of a residence with his leg missing. He was airlifted to a nearby hospital.
His wife Sandy was not at home at the time but told police her husband was “acting odd all day long”, but he “never touched her” and “was only being verbally abusive,” according to the affidavit.
“Sandy said he was telling her that he was Jesus Christ and that she needed to get right with the lord. Sandy said he became violent towards her and said he was Satan,” the affidavit reads. “He told Sandy that he would twist her head off and continued to make verbal threats.”
Sandy then left the residence at around 8:15 p.m. because she “was scared Shannon would kill her” and went to stay with a friend, leaving their daughter at home, the affidavit continues.
“When I asked Sandy why she didn’t take her daughter with her, she said she was worried about Shannon killing her and wasn’t worried about her daughter,” wrote Corporal Jason Brisco.
Their daughter, interviewed at a child advocacy centre, confirmed her presence when her father amputated his leg. She still appeared to be in a state of shock, and it was recommended she undergo counselling before further interview attempts.
