CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Candice Mahood doesn't know what her brother was doing before he was found shot to death beside a Dumpster on John Wesley Drive in Mink Shoals.
Kanawha County sheriff's deputies are still investigating and have not released many details into who allegedly shot Shane Patrick Henry, 26, multiple times Saturday.
Henry had been planning a camping trip and was excited to pick up his 3-year-old son for Father's Day, his sister said.
At about 8:30 a.m., Kanawha County 911 dispatchers received a call from a Mink Shoals resident saying that she saw a man lying on the ground next to a Dumpster. Henry was dead when paramedics arrived on the scene.
There had been no reports of gunshots fired, but neighbors told police that they had heard what they thought were firecrackers overnight.
Henry had no previous run-ins with the law and had been employed as a chef at the Embassy Suites before being laid off recently.
If somebody or something were troubling him, he wouldn't have told anybody, Mahood said.
"He had no family. Our father died, brother died, our two grandmothers died and my mother's boyfriend had passed on, too," Mahood said. "My brother never really had anybody around him, even if he wanted someone to help him."
Henry and Mahood lost their father when Henry was just 3 years old. Their brother died of sudden infant death syndrome and as children, their home burned down.
