NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A 23-year-old mother crossed the state line and never returned home.

On June 1, 1996, Shawn Neal was supposed to meet someone at the Windy Shores II Condominium complex on South Ocean Boulevard in North Myrtle Beach. It would be the last time anyone would ever hear from the Leland, N.C. woman.

More than 20 years later, no one has been held accountable for Neal’s death, which destroyed a family and left her young daughter without a murder.

In this edition of Carolina True Crime, WMBF News looks back at this unsolved crime and the collateral damage it caused.
