Mother Who Abandoned Children Arrested

Posted 10/31/2012 10:04 AM by KWESTBERG

On Tuesday, October 30, 2012, a construction supervisor at the I-90 interchange project at Mile Post 1 near the state line found two boys, ages three and six, sitting in a grassy area near the construction site at about 9:00 a.m. Kootenai County Sheriff's Deputies responded to the scene and the boys told them their mother had run out of gas and went for help. The boys were eventually placed into protective custody.

On Tuesday evening, October 30, 2012, at about 8:30 p.m., an anonymous caller contacted Spokane County dispatch and provided information that the boy's mother, 27-year-old Shannon Duval, was at a residence near the 300 block of South David in Spokane Valley. Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputies located Duval at the residence where she was arrested for a local Negligent Driving warrant. A fugitive hold has since been placed on Duval by the Kootenai County Sheriff's Office.
