Naked in Nature Preserve Charges

(La Porte County, IN) - A man and woman from La Porte County allegedly found naked in a local nature preserve are facing charges.


Shauna Mulcahy, 28, and Samuel Wilson, 36, are charged in La Porte Circuit Court with level 6 felony possession of methamphetamine and Class A misdemeanor public nudity.


Wilson is also charged with Class C misdemeanor possession of paraphernalia.


According to court documents, a hunter at the Kingsbury Fish and Wildlife Area spotted a Jeep pulling a trailer drive off the road and into a field.


The hunter reported his discovery to an Indiana Department of Natural Resources conservation officer because vehicles were prohibited from traveling off-road in the nature preserve.


Court documents revealed the officer spotted Mulcahy and Wilson lying completely naked on the front seat while approaching the vehicle. Authorities said music was playing from the vehicle parked about 150 yards from a parking lot.


The man and woman from the Kingsbury area and Springville were allowed to put their clothes back before the officer discovered a meth pipe in the vehicle. A small amount of methamphetamine was found inside a tiny metal container along with a marijuana cigarette.


Wilson was also wanted on an active warrant for an undisclosed offense.
