Suspect in girlfriend’s shooting death walks free

A Utah man arrested for the murder of his girlfriend has been released from jail due to a lack of evidence.

KUTV reports that Shaina Bigby , 27, died on June 27, the day after she was shot in the head. Witnesses reportedly placed her boyfriend Cameron Lundgren at the scene of the shooting, and he was subsequently arrested. But as of this week, he’s a free man — although authorities do not appear to have any other suspects.

Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill told the news station that Lundgren, 40, had to be released because authorities did not have enough evidence to keep him in custody.

“The presumption of innocence applies to every citizen,” Gill said. “There’s a process we have. It’s not about the hurt and harm we perceive, it’s about what we can go into court and prove.”

A Twitter user who said they were a friend of Bigby’s posted a message on the media platform claiming that Lundgren was now active on the dating app Bumble, and warned that he may be “looking for his next victim.” CrimeOnline could not independently verify this claim and cannot confirm that the photos in the Twitter post are Lundgren.

Bigby’s father told KUTV that friends saw the couple fighting outside their Midvale home on the day of Bigby’s death, before the woman followed Lundgren into the home.

“She never came back out again,” her father told the news station, adding that the couple had a volatile relationship.

The father said he now worries that his daughter’s killer will never be brought to justice.

“She’s taken from me, and I don’t have anything to show for it. Nothing — and I may never,” Bigby told KUTV.

But the District Attorney said the case is far from closed.

“It continues to be an active investigation with law enforcement,” Gill told the news station.
