A Shelbyville judge ruled Friday that a man who is a suspect in the disappearance of his ex-wife in 2011 cannot have visitation with his daughter. The Shelbyville Times Gazette reported Judge Lee Russell wrote in his opinion that he concluded that the child’s story is credible.”
Russell was referring to accusations made by the now 8-year-old daughter of Tyler and Shelley Mook, who claimed that Tyler and Kim Mook, the child’s paternal grandmother, spoke to the child about burning down her maternal grandmother’s house in Pennsylvania. The judge wrote in a letter to the attorneys given the actions of the father and paternal grandmother, I find it is not appropriate to resume any form of visitation at this time. He said he would discuss “our future course” in more detail in his full written opinion.
