The Amish community in the USA was left devastated by a brutal murder that occurred in Pennsylvania, the heart of their religious community. On February 26, 2024, Rebekah Byler, a 23-year-old pregnant woman, was discovered dead in her home in Spartansburg with a gunshot wound to the head. Her husband Andy Byler found her body and unfortunately, their unborn child also did not survive. However, their two other children, aged 2 and 3, were unharmed.

After several days of investigation, the police arrested Shawn Cranston, a 52-year-old trucker as a suspect in the murder. Several pieces of evidence pointed to him as the perpetrator. The victim’s husband had seen a suspicious man in their garden days before the murder, described as bald with a white beard, driving a red car similar to Cranston’s wife’s Jeep. In addition, the victim’s son witnessed the murder and mentioned seeing a man wearing sneakers which matched shoe prints found at the crime scene that belonged to Cranston.

Further evidence such as videos placing Cranston near the crime scene on the day of the murder and the discovery of items from an Amish home in his possession implicated him in the crime. Although DNA evidence is still being analyzed police found disposable rubber gloves in Cranston’s home which suggest his involvement
