Police found the two of them parked in Rachael’s car late one night in a wooded area with the windows steamed up. Rachael and Sheldon both told police that they were just talking that night, but their late-night chat led to Rachael’s suspension from her job and the end of her engagement, even though no charges were ever filed against Rachael.
48 Hours aired an investigation into Rachael’s murder in May of 2019. Just hours after Rachael’s investigation called “What Happened to Rachael?” aired on TV, someone connected to her was found unconscious on the side of the road.
This someone was none other than Sheldon Jeter Jr. Yes, the same Sheldon she was found talking to in her parked car before she was murdered.
Sheldon was 21-years-old when he was found to be unconscious, and he was apparently partying hard in Pittsburgh that night. At 4 in the morning on Sunday, May 19th, a 911 call was placed saying there was an unconscious man just lying on the side of the road.
The caller mentioned they had seen a blue-colored truck at the scene speeding away. When firefighters got to the side of Orchard Street, they found Sheldon.
Sheldon appeared to be suffering from an overdose, so first responders gave him Narcan and were able to revive him. Michael Santicola, Sheldon’s attorney, said that Sheldon was not overdosing when he was found. He also says Sheldon has no history of using drugs at all.
Sheldon just had too much to drink that night and blacked out on the side of the road, his attorney maintained. Sheldon remembered nothing. He did remember blacking out, he didn’t remember being revived, or the first responders who helped save his life.
After he was revived, he flipped off the first responders and just walked off towards home. Some display of gratitude.
Even though Mr. Santicola insisted Sheldon was just drunk, the curious thing about Narcan is that it won’t revive you if you’re suffering from alcohol poisoning or an overdose of that kind of cocktail…..
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that Narcan is only successful in reviving patients who have overdosed on opioids.
If that isn’t curious enough for you, it turns out that Rachael and Sheldon were romantically involved. Mr. Santicola even admitted that Sheldon and Rachael were romantically involved for quite some time, but he pointed out that Sheldon is innocent and had nothing to do with her death at all.
