The three-part documentary follows the mother of two as she becomes a bodybuilding celebrity and explores her toxic relationship with fellow competitor Ray McNeil, who she killed on Valentine’s Day 1995.
Sally was convicted guilty of second-degree murder and given a 25-year prison sentence, despite her claims that she was acting in self-defense. After serving her time, she was released from jail in 2020 and settled in Northern California, where she currently works in a warehouse.
For the first time, in Killer Sally, Sally, now 60 years old, speaks out about what happened to her and her husband, claiming Ray was adulterous and abusive and reportedly attacked her on the day he died while in a steroid-induced frenzy. Sally further claims that Ray abused her son John and daughter Shantina from a previous marriage.
The documentary Killer Sally has interviews with both of Sally’s children, son John and daughter Shantina. John claims Ray often beat him and his sister when their mom was out of the house. When Sally was imprisoned, John and Shantina were just nine and twelve years old, respectively; after spending time in a foster home, they eventually moved in with John’s and Shantina’s maternal grandparents.
Where, though, are John and Shantina, Sally’s offspring?
After Sally’s imprisonment, both John and Shantina Lowden served in the military, with John doing five combat deployments in Afghanistan and eventually developing PTSD and a drug addiction.
Shantina served in the United States Army for 16 years, during which time she worked as an electrical engineer and toured Afghanistan and Iraq. She later developed post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a result of her time in the military and a previous violent relationship.
The Cinemaholic reports that they both had settled down with families and established professional lives. John and his family live in Texas, and Shantina is an IT network administrator for the Defense Logistics Agency. She and her kid make their home in Georgia.
