‘Witch’ charged with missing Georgia mom Leila Cavett’s kidnapping

A self-professed witch has been charged with kidnapping in the case of missing Georgia mom Leila Cavett, nearly a month after she disappeared in Florida and her son was found wandering alone the next day, court documents show.

Shanon Demar Ryan, a 38-year-old who refers to himself as “the witch” and a “master of the occult arts” on his Facebook profile, was charged Monday with kidnapping with the intent to collect a ransom weeks after Cavett, 21, was last seen in Hollywood, Florida, on July 25.

Her 2-year-old son, Kamdyn, was found alone the following day about two miles away in Miramar, court documents obtained by WPLG show.

Ryan told investigators he’s known Cavett since January 2019 and that she recently traveled to South Florida to sell him her pickup truck for $3,000, a criminal complaint shows.

Ryan said Cavett and her son met him at a RaceTrac gas station in Hollywood before going to the beach in his gold Lexus. The trio later returned to the gas station, where Cavett and her son got into a dark sedan with several males early on July 26, Ryan told investigators.

“She grabbed her kid and got into the car with those guys,” Ryan has said on Facebook, according to the station.

But video surveillance at the gas station doesn’t show the Dawsonville, Georgia, mom and her son getting into a sedan, nor does it show Ryan’s car where he claimed, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

Ryan, who was arrested Saturday on two counts of lying to a federal officer, has not been charged in Cavett’s disappearance, but he bought bleach, duct tape and carpet deodorizer using the woman’s debit card at Walmart on July 26, FBI investigators said.
