Shawn's Msg

The text message Shawn sent to Carlos.

The first time Frank and the player confronted Shawn was moments after Carlos's cell phone was found inside a pile of panties, unlocked, and digitally analyzed by Hannah. Hannah found a text message arousing her attention--the victim was told to act right or face the consequences, and the text was sent from Shawn, in which Hannah transmitted the information to the player's tablet, much to Frank's dismay. In plain simple words, Frank and the player rushed to Shawn's address to interrogate him for the first time. Shawn claimed Carlos and himself were friends and also claimed he was joking when it came to the text Frank mentioned, even going as far as declaring Carlos a brother in spite of the rage problems Carlos had.

The second time the team talked to Shawn was a little after the team found a faded shift schedule inside Oceanic Tattoos restored with forensic powder. Frank wanted to know if Shawn knew anything about the murder weapon. Shawn liked the car but as much as Frank wanted to know who drove the car during Shawn's shift, Shawn told the team many people came during his shift and kept no records of those vehicles, as people who do business with Oceanic Tattoos buy tattoos for their body. Shawn said that the last time he saw Carlos was when he had a good time at Derek Stone's party.

It was later revealed that Shawn was the killer of Carlos Antonio. Shawn killed Carlos because he was in love with Memphis Banach and was sick and tired of Carlos abusing Memphis. He tried to convince Memphis to file a complaint against him, but Memphis refused to file it, so he tried to text Carlos to try to reason with him, but it didn't work at all. So Shawn decided to kill Carlos by hijacking a street racing car, lured Carlos outside, knocked him out, tied him up to the car, and killed and tortured him by going full speed in the car.

Judge Dante sentenced Shawn to 20 years in prison (15 years for murder and 5 years for street racing).
