  • Details of Disappearance
    Shirley Moon Atwood went missing from the Pittsfield/Canaan, Maine area. Atwood was reported missing on July 15, 2006, and her vehicle was found abandoned shortly afterward.

    When she disappeared, Atwood was estranged from her husband, Shannon Roy Atwood, and had moved out of their home in Canaan, where he was still living with another woman, Cheryl Murdoch, who also went missing and whose body was found in a wooded area in Canaan on Aug. 11, 2006.

    Shannon Atwood was subsequently arrested and convicted for the murder of Cheryl Murdoch and was sentenced to 55 years. Shannon Atwood was indicted for Shirley's murder even though her body was not found.

    The Shirley Atwood murder indictment was later dismissed without prejudice by the Maine AG's Office. Shirley Atwood's body has not been located. Foul play is suspected.
