GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – The Green Bay woman charged for her involvement in the Stony Brook death has been identified and police released gruesome details of the incident.

Shad Thyrion

A criminal complaint obtained by Local 5 shows that 24-year-old Taylor Schabusiness is facing multiple charges related to a 25-year-old Green Bay man, identified as Shad Thyrion, that was found dead in a house.

Schabusiness told authorities that she and a friend picked up the victim in a minivan and then went to the Eastman Avenue apartment. All three then smoked marijuana. Both Schabusiness and the victim reportedly smoked methamphetamine and shot up with Trazadone.


The complaint said the victim and Schabusiness went to the victim’s mom’s house and started to engage in sexual activity. She then told authorities that she choked the victim and ‘went crazy’. She said the victim went purple, but ‘she was already this far’ and kept on choking him until he died.

Schabusiness then told authorities how she mutilated the victim’s body. She is charged with sexual assault because she ‘played with the body’ after he died. She described how she used knives from the kitchen to mutilate the body.

The mother of the victim heard the door close and went to check if anyone was still in the house. She called the cops after finding remains of her son in the basement.

According to court records, Schabusiness is charged with the following charges:

  • 1st-Degree Intentional Homicide
  • Mutilating a Corpse
  • 3rd-Degree Sexual Assault

Schabusiness said she was not prepared and the killing was random. Police found her with blood on her clothes as well as remains in the minivan.

The court has set a $2 million cash bond and no contact with the victim’s family. Schabusiness is scheduled to appear in court on March 22.
