Every day, stories unfold that have no resolution. Unresolved is an investigative and immersive look at those stories, as host Micheal Whelan tries to determine why these stories - unsolved crimes and other unexplained phenomena - have no ending.


Daniel Shaver

On the evening of January 18th, 2016, a young man named Daniel Shaver was checked into a hotel room in Mesa, Arizona. He was in-town for business, having left his wife and two daughters behind at their home in Granbury, Texas.

Daniel was enjoying life, and invited two guests to his hotel room for some drinks. There, he decided to show them his pellet guns (which he used for his work at a pest removal company). Some guests saw him handling these perceived weapons through his open window, and decided to warn the front desk. This led to a 911 call, and - ultimately - an encounter with police.

At the end of the evening, Daniel Shaver would be dead... while the young officer that pulled the trigger found himself facing murder charges.
