Shawn Milne, a convicted murderer is set to be released from prison this month after murdering 13-year-old Barbara Renee Harrison in Toms River, New Jersey 30 years ago.
Some of the residents of Toms River are upset to hear that this man convicted of raping and murdering a 13-year-old girl 30 years ago is soon to be released from prison. For those of you who don't know the story, Shawn Milne was 15 years old when he was accused of the brutal rape and murder of his neighbor, 13-year-old Barbara Renee Harrison in 1985. Investigators say Milne hit Harrison on the head, knocked her unconscious and dragged her into the woods, where he assaulted her. Investigators then say he threw her into Goose Creek, where she drowned.
Milne was tried as an adult and sentenced to 50 years in prison. However, he is getting out on Nov. 14 after serving 30 years, due to good behavior.
Now residents say that they feel uneasy, because they think someone who is capable of these crimes should not be released and allowed back into the community.
