BREAKING: Arrest made for attempted first degree murder of Shannon Wrench, formerly known as Jane Doe

Live Oak — Suwannee County Sheriff Tony Cameron told The Suwannee Democrat that Jane Doe is Shannon Wrench, 34, of Rantoul, Illinois and that a fellow Rantoulan was arrested for attempted first degree murder of Wrench.

Cameron gave the information first to the Democrat.

Cameron said that Wrench was able to give information to authorities so an arrest warrant could be obtained on Shawn Patrick O'Bryan, 38, of Rantoul, Illinois who was arrested today by the Rantoul Police Department on a charge of attempted first degree murder.

"We will be waiting to see if he waives extradition," Cameron said. "Either way, he is in jail in Rantoul, Illinois."

Cameron wouldn't give too many specifics, but stated that Wrench and O'Bryan knew each other somehow. He wouldn't elaborate on how the two ended up in Suwannee County only that O'Bryan has ties to the Gainesville area.

"From what we can understand he has family that lives in Gainesville," said Cameron.

O'Bryan is in jail with no bond.

He will eventually be brought back to Suwannee County, Cameron said.
