SPOTLIGHT EVIL DRUGS AS MAN KILLS 2 FRIENDS

MATES MURDERED BY DRUG PARANOIA

SPOTLIGHT EVIL DRUGS AS MAN KILLS 2 FRIENDS
It was Friday, April 27, 2012. The dirt road was dry, VERY dry,
There was three people in the four-wheel drive, 40-year-old Philip Jonathan Thomas, 41-year old Christopher Bennet Sandison and his partner of 13 years, Cindy Haynes. All three people in the vehicle knew the owner of the property they were heading for, Shane Jon Shove, who owned a house on Jim Jolly Road in remote Sandalwood in the South Australian outback. The area known as Sandalwood consists of 3 houses and a hall. Sandalwood is the sort of place you go when you don’t want to be disturbed by the modern world. It’s dry and dusty, 176 km east of Adelaide. The closest place to civilisation is Karoonda, 28 km back towards Adelaide.

OUTBACK SOUTH AUSTRALIA

All in the car, where headed out to Sandalwood for a weekend of shooting, drinking, smoking some weed, a bit of meth and generally just being out in the open air. Build a campfire at night and drink, smoke and tell a few yarns and have a few laughs. Cindy was also there to get some more tattoo work done as Shove was a bit of a backyard artist when it came to tattoos.
The weekend had been going great, probably a little too much drinking and a bit too much drugs, but everything seemed relaxed. However, Shove became more and more paranoid over the few days that Thomas and Sandison were there to steal his weed. The group had run out of beer by Sunday lunchtime, so Sandison drove the 56 Km round trip to Karoonda to get some more.
While he was gone, Shove’s paranoia over Thomas and Sandison stealing his pot had peaked.

Shove grabbed a gun and pointed it at Thomas. All Thomas managed to say was, what the hell are you doing?. And Shove fired, hitting Thomas strait in the heart. Thomas dropped to the floor and was dead before he hit the ground. His body left laying on the back Verandah just as Sandison pulled up the drive with more beer. Cindy, who had witnessed the killing of Thomas, ran out the front of the house to warn her partner, but she was too late. Shove had run around the house and confronted Sandison asking him why he was trying to steal his drugs. When Sandison replied that he wasn’t, Shove shot him in the head.
Cindy ran to Sandison and held him in her arms as he died. All Shove could say was. Tell them I did it in self-defence.
Cindy phoned the police and hid in the four-wheel-drive until they arrived and arrested Shove.

During his court case, the prosecutor told the courts that Shove became more and more paranoid as he consumed more drugs. He believed the two blameless men were out to steal his pot.Shove’s parents, via a letter, informed the courts that their son’s paranoia was linked directly to his drug abuse since the early age of fifteen.

The Judge stated that this was a cautionary tale of the effects of drug abuse. The lives of Two innocent men senselessly ended. In doing so, Shove has destroyed his own life and that of many others. Shove pleaded guilty and accepted that he had no justification for doing what he did.
Initially, the Judge set a non-parole period of 33 years. But because of his guilty plea and the fact that he showed he was genuinely remorseful and ashamed. The Judge lowered his non-parole period of 26 years.
