Clermont woman arrested 2 years after husband’s remains found buried in her backyard
Remains were found in March 2018 buried under a concrete slab and fire pit on Laurie Shaver’s property on Sandy Pines Road. Several months later, authorities positively identified the remains as Michael Shaver, her husband. Lake County deputies spoke to Laurie Shaver in early 2018 and she said she hadn’t seen him since 2015. Those friends and co-workers found this odd and did not think Michael Shaver would leave his children, according to the arrest affidavit. Laurie told her boyfriend Michael Shaver “wasn’t missing, he was no longer walking this earth," according to the arrest affidavit.
