These are recent posts by a person in the house where he claims he had nothing to do with Nick’s disappearance.

Nicholas Harley Shinn was an 18 year old from Ripley, WV. He had an older brother and was named after his aunt. During the day of June 25, 2003, Nicholas was at an apartment hanging out with friends, although he had had a run-in with a guy there a couple years before. The group said Nicholas walked off. He was never seen again.

Yet, Nicholas could’ve gotten around the creek and walked off into the woods behind the apartment. He could’ve walked for miles and miles and miles. It’s West Virginia. It’s June. A perfect time to go for a walk in that state. And Nick decided life wasn’t worth living.


Certainly possible.


However, if we are to look at the creek theory more closely, what’s hard to understand, given its curves is how far Nicholas really could’ve floated away. This is the disappearance of Krystal Bailey all over again—sure, she probably ended up in the water, but how far could she have gone in a creek that was windy, meaning it would flow at a slower rate even with it being higher than normal?


Same with Nicholas. Yes, the creek was up. Yes, it was right there behind the apartments. Yes, he surely would’ve gotten whisked away in its currents. But could he have really been taken the whole way to the Ohio River? Doubtful.


Then why wasn’t he found hung up in some limbs on a riverbank? Probably because I doubt anyone checked. Not to mention, there would be a time element in all of this.
