Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Shannon was last seen at approximately 4:00 p.m. at a friend's residence in the vicinity of the 200 block of W. Blackhawk Avenue in Prairie du Chien, WI. She left behind two young children. Shannon has been described as a "homebody", someone who wouldn't leave without notifying someone.
Michael John Burroughs turned himself in in 2010 and told authorities he had killed Fischer, his girlfriend at the time. Burroughs told police he got into an argument with Fischer on Dec. 18, 2006, and put her in a choke hold until she stopped breathing. Burroughs kept her body in a closet for several days before dumping it into a garbage container behind his building at 207 E. Blackhawk Ave. Burroughs had no criminal history in Wisconsin, although court records show he pleaded guilty in 2005 to a misdemeanor graffiti charge and received a year of probation.
