Shasta Groene found alive from Kootenai Valley News
Eight-year-old ShastaGroene, who had been missing since her mother, brother, and her mother’s boyfriend were bludgeoned to death May 15, is alive and being cared for at Kootenai Medical Center, Coeur d’Alene, after a waitress at a Coeur d’Alene Denny's Restaurant recognized her just shortly before 2 a.m.
Shasta’s brother, Dylan, 9, was not with the two, and there is no indication yet as to where he might be, but authorities now fear he may be dead, though they have not released any information as to what leads them to this conclusion.
Officers verified that the girl was Shasta, and Dean walked her outside to a police car as Duncan was taken into custody without incident.
