CASTALIA -- Shannon Limberios doesn't want to separate any other mother from her child.

"It's hell," said Limberios, who lost her son, Jacob, to a gunshot wound in a case that has galvanized not just this village and the surrounding areas, but people across the world.

Limberios said because she doesn't want to separate another mother from their child, she will not press for any sentences if what she feels is the truth comes out about how her 19-year-old son died on March 2, 2012.

Shannon's older son, Michael Jr., said in an interview Thursday Sandusky County authorities weren't cooperating or listening to the family's pleas for further investigation into the case.

So the family has taken their case onto the Dr. Phil show in the hope that what they feel is the truth comes out. The first part of the episode aired Thursday and the second part airs today. During today's episode, Dr. Phil is expected to reveal the results of a lie detector test taken by individuals who were with Jacob at a gathering, which is when a gunshot killed him.

The Dr. Phil show airs at 4 p.m. on WTOL, Channel 11.
