GBI gives update on death investigation
of woman found floating in Darien River
On Thursday, May 9, GBI Kingsland Special Agent in Charge Stacy B. Carson provided information concerning the GBI’s investigation into the death of Sammeka Barriner, age 29, of Broward county, Fla., whose body was found floating in the Darien River on April 3.
SAC Carson stated: “The investigation revealed that while traveling north on Interstate 95, Sammeka Barriner and Shon May-Stone stopped at the Darien exit at an unknown area. While there, Shon May-Stone believed Sammeka Barriner had died and therefore left her there without seeking any medical assistance and was in possession of Sammeka Barriner’s belongings.
A warrant has been issued for Shon May-Stone for one count of Concealing the Death of Another. At this time, Shon May-Stone has not been arrested, but law enforcement is actively seeking her.
The autopsy findings are still pending and additional charges could be forthcoming.
