Sean Shea Wiki
Sean Shea Biography
Alexander and Nicholas VanDuren, both 32, were charged with the murder of Sean Shea, 36, of Kenmore, at a Motel 6 in Lacey, Washington, on August 30.
Sean was staying at the motel with his wife and their two children after attending a wedding when his seven-year-old son heard someone get into the car and woke his father around 9:30 p.m. m.
Shea opened the window and began to argue with the twins. When he came out to confront them, they “pushed and punched the victim,” according to court documents, seen by KOMO News.
Shea then fell backwards and hit her head, sustaining a “broken back of the head”. The twins then allegedly continued to hit and kick him until he passed out and then he died at St. Peter’s Hospital.
In court on Thursday, Sean’s fiancée, Sheena Shea, pleaded with the court to jail the brothers for life.
‘And my son had to witness it and he was horrible. For a seven-year-old to see that happen to his father, these men should go to prison for life.
Alexander was arrested Wednesday and is being held on $1 million bail, but Nicholas is still at large and considered dangerous. He is also believed to drive a 2016 Ford Fusion with registration: CEJ9093 and has an ace of spades tattooed on his shoulder.
Nicholas has been arrested 24 times and has six felony convictions, according to KOMO News. He also has eight felony misdemeanors and just got out of jail in April.
We will find Nicholas, we will apprehend him,” Detective Eric Lever told King 5 News. “It’s not a question of if, it’s just a question of when.”
A motel resident, who did not want to be named, said he heard a boy ask: ‘Where’s my dad?’
‘That’s one thing that stayed with me. Just hearing him ask, “Where’s my dad?” [It was] really heartbreaking,’ he told KOMO News.
Alexander is expected to appear in court again on December 28. He has pleaded not guilty to second degree murder.
