Shaun Gallon formally charged

Ironically, I found out about this yesterday, right on Jason's birthday... but I wanted to wait until today to share this because, even though it's great news, I didn't want it to overshadow the celebration of Jason's life! :)

This has been a long time coming! After a full year of investigators collecting evidence and building a case, Shaun Gallon has been formally charged with Jason & Lindsay's murders! Quite honestly, for the longest time, I didn't really think we would ever find their killer. SO much time had passed and since no one had come forward, I thought it would go unsolved forever. It was a huge surprise and a relief when Gallon was caught last year, but my worst fear that someone else would die at the hands of their killer was realized. That's how he was caught. He murdered his own brother. :( I am so grateful that he did reveal some information though that only Jason & Lindsay's killer would know! I'm not sure why, but in California, they still have to build a case against him even though he implicated himself in an interview with police last year. The Sonoma County Sheriff's Department has done an outstanding job over the years in their concerted efforts to follow leads, which ultimately led them to Gallon! I can't say enough about how amazing they've been. The case never actually went cold because they never let it.

    Jason's 40th Birthday!!! :)

    Jason rockin' the whitewater, Summer 2004

    Today, Jason would have turned 40! I turned 40 last August and, even though I sort of dreaded the "Big 4-0," it was a truly special day because my family planned some really awesome surprises! So I wonder how Jason would have been celebrating his birthday today... since this really is a special one!

    I went to a visitation last night for my great-aunt who passed away a few days ago at age 93. She lived a long life and died very peacefully, surrounded by family. The circumstances of her life and death are different in SO many ways, but similarly, we know how much she loved the Lord and that she's now in heaven! There is such an enormous sense of joy and peace in knowing that! We celebrate her life because of who she was, the lives she touched, the memories she gave to everyone who knew her, and her love for the Lord! This applies to Jason as well. He was only here for 26 years and 3 months, but he made his life count! And because we KNOW that he accepted Christ and followed Him, there is NO doubt that he too is in heaven! The comfort in that is hard to put into words. We have such a treasure in Christ! HE took the punishment that WE deserve, and because of that, we can be saved for eternity! His love for us is unfathomable! No matter what we have done, His arms are open to welcome us. He dearly wants us all to turn to Him and to know the freedom of repentance, which leads to a peace and a joy that is indescribable! I have seen the most hardened people completely transformed after they've accepted Jesus! Jesus is not just some myth... He is real, He is powerful, and His love, peace, grace, mercy, compassion, kindness, patience, (etc., etc., etc.) are life changing!

    "For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." ~John 3:16

    "The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. He will not always accuse, nor will He harbor His anger forever; He does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His love for those who fear Him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us." ~Psalm 103:8-12

    So today, I give thanks to God for the memories I have of Jason which are a treasure to me. We had such fun when we were kids and I am forever grateful for that privilege! I never could have imagined how things would turn out, but I also never imagined how God could turn this tragedy into something beautiful. So many people have come to know Jesus through Jason & Lindsay's story and their influence. That is priceless and it means they did not die in vain! For their story to glorify God is all they would have ever wanted... and I am so glad that is the case.

    Below is a sweet tribute from Jason's mom, in honor of his birthday today:

    For Jason’s 40th birthday, I thought I would share a birthday memory of him. When he was in high school, he wanted to buy an old Jeep and fix it up. He found one within his price range that looked as though it had been through the war. It was pretty beat up, and it did not run. His dad, somewhat hesitant about purchasing this vehicle, gave in and allowed him to buy it. After all, it could be a great father-son project to get this Jeep fixed up and running. The Jeep had to be towed to our house and was given its place of honor in our garage.

    They worked diligently night after night. When they were able to get it started, the engine was so loud that it would rock the neighborhood. I would not allow them to work on it after 10:00 pm for fear the police would show up at our door!

    After months of toil and not a whole lot of success, Jason grew sick of this Jeep. His dream had become a source of frustration and financial liability. He decided to sell it. But who would want to buy an old dilapidated Jeep that would barely run?

    Jason advertised it in a truck trader magazine that had a circulation that covered the state of Michigan. Finally, after several weeks and much prayer, we got a phone call from a girl in Jackson, Michigan.

    "Do you still have the Jeep for sale?" she asked.

    "Yes", I replied.

    "Good! I want it and will bring cash," she said.

    Shocked I said, "But you haven’t seen it."

    "That’s o.k. I want it!"

    "It doesn’t run, and it will have to be towed," I said, not wanting her to make a two-hour trip for nothing.

    Not hesitating she said, "I still want it."

    Quickly I added, "There is a large hole in the side of the Jeep."

    "That’s o.k. I really, really want it! I will bring the money." She was determined.

    "Great," I said. "We will look forward to seeing you."

    When she came, Jason was so nervous that he stayed in his bedroom. He didn’t even meet her, as he was afraid she would change her mind once she actually saw the Jeep. Instead, he lay on his bedroom floor praying.

    She didn’t bat an eye when she saw it. In fact, she looked thrilled to have found it. I took her money, and she and her friend loaded up the Jeep and left. I went up to Jason’s room and said, "God sold your Jeep, and see how much He loves you? He sold it on your birthday! Happy Birthday!"

    With that Jason let out one of his famous victory cheers! God had given him a great birthday gift.

    Happy Birthday Beloved Son! We sure do miss you.
    Mom and Dad

    The infamous Jeep. :)

    Celebrating his birthday and selling the Jeep! :)

    Happy 40th Birthday Jason! ♥ You are loved by so many and you will never be forgotten!

    Lindsay's 36th Birthday!

    Thirty-six years ago today, Lindsay was born. God had a plan and a purpose for her life that I believe she lived out fully in the almost 23 years she was here! She had a true heart for the Lord and lived her life accordingly. Every time I think of her or of Jason, I think of heaven. For me (and I'm sure many others), their story is a reminder of how short and precious life is... and of what really matters and what doesn't. God views death much differently than we do. For those of us who have accepted Christ's gift of Salvation, there is a guarantee of eternal life in heaven with Him. So naturally, when I think of them, I think of heaven and how that is our ultimate destination. It is so easy to get caught up in the stresses that come with adulthood and everyday life, but to remember that God is in control and to keep the perspective on what matters for eternity and what doesn't, is a true gift. This is a perspective that Lindsay had while she was here. This is an excerpt from one of her journals:

    "I greatly desire to have many crowns to give my God when I get to heaven. Nothing on earth matters in light of eternity. It is so easy to get caught up in the things of the world and forget what really matters. How amazing that we have forever to spend with Christ. The more we worship and spend our lives for Christ on earth the better we can serve Him in heaven. I sometimes think of myself as a pilgrim in a foreign land traveling through life. We are here temporarily. I should be less materialistic and give more to God. Don’t waste time."

    Beautiful Lindsay at Donner Lake, Summer 2004

    Lindsay was a remarkable person with a remarkable faith! She was loved by so many people and her memory is kept alive by those who knew & loved her most. I didn't know her personally (only having met her once) but I love hearing stories about her. I am truly looking forward to getting to know her in heaven! I can only try to imagine the adventures that she & Jason (and Caleb) are experiencing at this very moment. ♥ Her mom wrote a sweet tribute for her birthday today:

    Go Tribe!

    I am sure that, to those of you who didn't know Lindsay very well, this would seem like a strange start to what I am about to say. But if you did know her you would completely get it. She had to be one of the biggest Cleveland Indians fan that there ever was! In fact, on her eighteenth birthday, we all went to the ball game with her. To her surprise, we had "Happy Birthday Lindsay" put up on the big screen for all to see. Last month, Chris took our oldest grandson (Jackson) to a game and he became an instant fan. How cute he looked when he came home in his new Indians cap! He knew his Aunt Lindsay was a huge fan and that we still had all her Tribe things in our shed. It didn't take him long to start going through all her items and scrap books. Even though it was hard to see all those things again it brought me joy to remember the good times. All that to say, on her birthday today, we will be going north to the Cleveland game once again! She would be so happy! And what is really neat is that the Lord worked out a way for us to meet the team after the game and to go down and be on the field. Funny how God works isn't it? He cares about the smallest details. I am sure that Lindsay has met so many saints of old, and to be in the presence of the Lord, that she couldn't care less about being a fan anymore. But boy, is her nephew Jackson ever excited! To see the joy on his face will help make the fact that we can't see her on her birthday a bit easier."

    Happy Birthday Lindsay! ♥ You are loved by so many and you will never be forgotten!

    Thirteen years...

    Thirteen years ago today, Jason & Lindsay met Jesus face-to-face. They entered into heaven... a paradise FAR beyond what we can even begin to comprehend! Their lives were taken by a cruel young man filled with hate who had no respect for human life... but this isn't about him. This is about JESUS... who is the only One who can turn what someone meant for evil into something good. Jason & Lindsay's deaths were horrific... that hasn't changed. But their eternal lives began at that moment and that is something we have to celebrate! I know it seems really strange to think about it that way. It doesn't erase the validity of grief or how much their presence here is deeply missed... but it gives us HOPE. That's who Jesus is. He is HOPE, He is LIFE, He is LOVE, He is our RESTORER, He is our HEALER... and His death on the cross and resurrection made Him our REDEEMER. If we choose to follow Him... our death means the beginning of eternal life with Him. That is a reason for joy!

    With that said... I'm not gonna lie. It did take me some time to fully recognize that there was such a reason for joy in this situation. What I mean is, I was so deeply impacted by this tragedy because it was just... unimaginable! It was overwhelming. I don't know a better way to describe it. But I never doubted God's goodness. In fact, I felt closer to God than ever before! But I was still devastated. There's nothing wrong with that. With God's help, I began to only see the beautiful truth that they're in the glory of heaven and that far outweighs the evil act that ended their lives here. I recently found a song that speaks perfectly to how God, as He NEVER leaves us, carries us through the trials that seek to consume us:

    Direct link here.

    Jason & Lindsay had such a heart for Jesus! They set aside material things and focused their lives on serving God in very unique ways. God gave them a passion for the simplicity and excitement of the "great outdoors," which is what led them to their unique calling... working at Christian adventure camps, where they could minister to youth while giving them the adventure of a lifetime! Just imagine that. How fun! No typical stresses of the "daily grind" that most of us have. They took their passion and found a way to serve God while pursuing their passion at the same time. Even on their last night on earth, they found a beautiful beach with a breathtaking view of the Pacific ocean and the sunset, and they wrote about their gratitude to God. They saw God in nature and it fueled their faith. They were truly remarkable people! I can only try to imagine what adventures they're on now. I look forward to joining in on those adventures one day.

    So today... while I do always wonder what they would be doing if they were still here... I know that God always knew exactly when they would die. Nothing is a surprise to Him. I don't know why He allowed it, but I know He didn't cause it. I am grateful that Jason & Lindsay's legacy honors God in such a beautiful way. They live on in the faith of their families & loved ones who keep their memory alive.

    Here are beautiful words from Jason's parents:

    A few days after the news broke concerning the suspect in Jason's and Lindsay's murders, God gave me this poem. I found it while reading Elisabeth Elliot's "Keep A Quiet Heart":

    I've many a cross to take up now,
    and many left behind;
    But present troubles move me not,
    nor shake my quiet mind.
    And what may be tomorrow's cross,
    I never seek to find;
    My Father says, "Leave that to me,
    and keep a quiet mind."

    Oh the peace that comes from knowing God is sovereign and the freedom that comes from carrying a heavy burden that truly is not our responsibility, when we commit to follow Jesus as our Lord and Savior!

    Yes, after 13 years, we still miss Jason and Lindsay, we long to see their smiles, hear their voices, and feel their touch. The hope that we have in Christ assures us of having all of that again someday. That hope heals the grief and the pain and gives us a quiet heart.

    Jason's 39th Birthday!

    Today, Jason would have been 39 years old. Every year that another birthday passes, my heart breaks knowing his dreams for his life with Lindsay were never fulfilled. I have so many memories of our childhood together and many of them make me laugh! He was so funny and full of energy and we had so much fun together! We used our imaginations to come up with fun games. We spent a lot of time outdoors. Lately, people around here have been looking for morel mushrooms because, apparently, they are really delicious. (I wouldn't know, as I don't like mushrooms AT ALL... haha!) I remember finding them out in the woods with Jason and we would stomp on them because we thought they were poisonous. I still remember how it felt to squish them, and it cracks me up! :) So every time I see a morel mushroom, I think of Jason. Just one of many memories that make me smile. Our childhood was idyllic, and I am so grateful for that! That is why his death absolutely broke my heart, because our early years together meant so much to me. I treasured my childhood with him and our other neighborhood friends. His tragic death cast a shadow over my memories for many years, but thankfully, God has removed that shadow and I can laugh and smile now as I remember those memories. God has been so good! He has touched so many hearts and changed so many lives through Jason & Lindsay's story.

    Me & Jason at age 3

    It is surreal and AMAZING to be able to write this now knowing the person responsible for killing them is in custody! I am enormously grateful to the Sonoma County Sheriff's Department! I have so many questions as to why their killer (Shaun Gallon) did this. I'm not sure we'll ever find out, as it seems he does not have any empathy or remorse. If he did, he would have turned himself in long ago. Sadly, his evil nature led to him murdering his own brother too. I don't know what his brother was like... he could have been just as evil or he could have been the absolute opposite... or somewhere in between. But I am saddened that another person died at the hands of Jason & Lindsay's killer. That is exactly what I hoped and prayed would never happen. :( And that is why this is so bittersweet.

    With that said, I am looking forward to seeing justice for Jason & Lindsay... if for nothing else than to give their families that closure, if there is such a thing. They already have the peace of knowing that Jason & Lindsay are safe in the physical presence of Jesus! No evil can ever touch them ever again. But it will sure be a huge blessing to see the person responsible for killing them to finally be held accountable for it! I hope he will someday feel remorse and turn to Jesus for forgiveness. Despite the evil crimes he has committed, God's grace even extends to him! But he needs to choose to turn from evil, and he's in it deep. There's no other way to heaven than to truly repent to Jesus and to receive the gift of salvation! I think it will take a lot for him to do that, but it's possible. Nothing will bring Jason & Lindsay back and Shaun Gallon's brother back, that is why it is important he faces justice now. I thank God that now he WILL!

    I want to honor Jason today by remembering his legacy of faith and obedience to God. He chose to walk the straight and narrow and he lived his life in such a way that honored God. Perhaps that is why God allowed his death. God knew that this tragedy would turn our lives upside down, but He also knew that this would give us an eternal perspective. God knew that shining a light on the deep faith that Jason lived with would inspire people to follow Jesus. (This obviously applies to Lindsay's legacy as well.) God knew that the steadfast faith that Jason's family (as well as Lindsay's) would display in the aftermath of this enormous loss would challenge people to live with greater faith... and to understand that God can give us strength and peace that passes all understanding, even in the most heartbreaking of circumstances. And, most of all, God has shown that He is good, even when life is deeply painful. He was so very tangibly present in the raw grief... offering such a sense of peace and comfort when the devastation was so intense. I know that Jason would be humbled to know that his untimely death led people to turn to Jesus and experience Him in such powerful, life-changing ways. What Shaun Gallon meant for evil, God turned around for good. He brought beauty from the ashes.

    To conclude, here is a beautiful message from Jason's parents:

    With the developments of the past few days, Jason and Lindsay's legacy is once again in the forefront. It was always their desire to honor God with their lives and to be obedient to His calling. They surrendered their lives totally, to be used for His glory. Who knew that Christ would be honored not only in the way they lived their lives but also in their deaths? Only God knew. He knew that before they were born. They were faithful to the end.

    I am reminded of Paul's desire to advance the gospel in any way God deemed best. In Philippians 1:20. Paul says:

    "My eager expectation and hope is that I will not be ashamed about anything, but that now as always, with all boldness, Christ will be highly honored in my body whether by life or by death." (HCSB)

    Jason, we, as your parents, are proud of you, and on May 16, we will celebrate the 26 years that God loaned you to us. Happy Birthday, son! We look forward to celebrating eternity with you.
    Love, Mom and Dad

    At long last!

    All glory to God!

    Wow, what a day! It is with enormous gratitude that I finally get to write about a real resolution to this case! I am in shock! I have to admit that, after all these years, justice on this side of heaven seemed next to impossible. I thought we would have to wait until heaven to have answers. But by God's amazing grace, answers came today!

    I wasn't quite prepared to handle the news. I always imagined I'd be elated and jumping for joy... but with this news came a tidal wave of emotions. It was like bringing myself back to the day we got the news that Jason & Lindsay had been found murdered. It utterly breaks my heart, even to this day. It is so unnerving and devastating, and it doesn't make any more sense now than it did then! And now we have a face and a name to go with the faceless killer that has eluded justice all these years. It is amazing that this day has finally come, but it is overwhelming and bittersweet all at the same time. Surreal, to say the least!

    I want to thank, from the bottom of my heart, all of the officers & detectives (and everyone else) from the Sonoma County Sheriff's Department and other agencies for their tireless efforts to solve this case! It's been over 12 years and 8 months and they've been phenomenal! They've cared so deeply about getting justice for Jason & Lindsay. They never gave up and today their successful efforts have been made known! I am in complete awe!

    Please keep the Allens and the Cutshalls in your prayers! Pray that Shaun Gallon pleads guilty so there's no need for a trial. If a trial becomes necessary, pray that the sheriff's department will have no trouble building a strong case, with or without his confession. Pray for Gallon's family. I don't know their character, but they're dealing with a whole other set of horrific realities. Most of all, pray thanks to God for the capture of this killer who will never be free to kill or hurt anyone else ever again!

    Here is a transcript of the press conference from the Sonoma County Sheriff's Department today:

    Sheriff announces break in 2004 Jenner double murder case.

    The Sheriff read the following statement at today's 10:30am press conference:

    Good morning ladies and gentlemen. I’m Steve Freitas, the Sheriff here in Sonoma County. I’d like to make a brief statement and then I will take some questions.

    I’m pleased to announce that the Sheriff’s Office has made a major break-thru in the investigation surrounding the murders of Jason Allen and Lindsay Cutshall that took place in August, 2004 in Jenner.

    Many of us will never forget when Sonoma County was rocked by the discovery of a young innocent couple found murdered on a secluded beach where they spent the night. Jason and Lindsay were just 26 and 22 years old at the time of their deaths. Jason, from Michigan, and Lindsay, from Ohio, were in California working at a Christian youth white water rafting camp in El Dorado County and were on a three day sight-seeing trip of the Northern California coast.

    The Sheriff’s Office has identified Shaun Gallon, a 38-year-old resident of Forestville, as Jason and Lindsay’s killer. Gallon was recently arrested for the murder of his brother in their Forestville home. Gallon is well known to Sheriff’s Office Investigators, and early on in the Jenner murder investigation Gallon was a person of interest who detectives never ruled out as a possible suspect.

    Upon Gallon’s arrest for the murder of his brother, Sheriff’s Office Detectives took another opportunity to talk to him about the murders in Jenner. Gallon made statements to the detectives with new information and additional investigative leads into the case. He had information about the killings that no other person could have known and we have located evidence that corroborates his information. Based on what detectives have been able to learn, we feel confident that we have Jason and Lindsay’s killer in custody.

    Sheriff’s Office detectives are continuing to follow-up on leads and are working hard to complete the investigation. We will be presenting our report to the District Attorney’s Office in the near future. However, we are still encouraging anyone with information about this case and/or Shaun Gallon to contact our detectives. For that reason, we are releasing a photo of Shaun Gallon. Sergeant Crum has that picture for those who want it and it will be posted at the end of this press conference.

    I’d like to a take moment to thank the other law enforcement agencies who assisted on this investigation over the years: The Santa Rosa Police Department, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms, California State Parks and the California Department of Justice. Additionally, I want to thank the members of our community who have come forward with information on this case.

    I also want to thank the many men and women of the Sheriff’s Office who have worked on this investigation over the years. I’m grateful to the dozens of detectives, from all of the Sheriff’s Office investigative units, who persistently and faithfully worked on this case for nearly 13 years. I wish I could name them all, but there are too many to list. I would like to acknowledge and thank the current investigative team: Lieutenant Tim Duke, Sgt. Shannon McAlvain, Lead Detective Joe Horsemen, Detectives Jeff Toney, Jayson Fowler and Jesse Hanshew.

    This case is further proof that the men and women of the Sheriff’s Office will never give up in protecting our community and seeking justice for crime victims.

    Most importantly I want to thank the Cutshall and Allen families, who have consistently been supportive and patient during this 13 year investigation. I’d like to read a statement from Bob and Delores Allen and Chris and Kathy Cutshall:

    “We are extremely pleased that our children’s murderer is in custody where he belongs. We praise the Lord for his capture and we trust in the due process of the law. We would like to thank the heartfelt concern of the people of Jenner and Sonoma County. We have appreciated your support for this case throughout our thirteen-year ordeal.

    We are especially grateful to the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office for their tireless pursuit of Jason’s and Lindsay’s killer. The strong support for us and for the case by the former sheriff, Sheriff Cogbill, and the current sheriff, Sheriff Freitas, has been outstanding. And the dedication of all the lieutenants, sergeants, detectives, and support personnel of Sheriff’s Office Investigations throughout the years has totally amazed us. The combination of their humanity and professionalism would not allow them to give up on this case. And when we at times wondered if this day would ever come, the detectives in particular wouldn’t allow us to lose hope. To all who have worked this case over the years, we can’t thank you enough. You are true heroes to us and we thank God for you.

    Finally and most importantly, we want to thank our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for sustaining us and our families throughout this long journey. We know that we have miles to go before the case is closed with a conviction, but we also know the power and wonder of God’s grace.

    Our prayers continue to be for the Sheriff’s Office as they build their case, for the families of the deputies, who have given them their undying support, for all the dear folks of Sonoma County who have prayed for us, and even for Shaun Gallon who heartlessly committed this senseless and wicked crime. Thank you.”
