Last week, TLC canceled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo following a series of stunning and sickening revelations.

First, TMZ reported that series star June Shannon was dating a convicted child molester named Mark McDaniel. 

Later, we learned that McDaniel’s victim was Anna Shannon – June’s eldest daughter who was just eight years old at the time.

June Shannon to Lose Children?

Then, in perhaps the most shocking development in this story thus far, photos emerged that showed McDaniel with Honey Boo Boo – Shannon’s 9-year-old daughter who currently lives with her in Georgia. 

More details have now emerged regarding McDaniel’s horrific crimes and it’s more astonishing than ever that June Shannon would welcome this man back into her life and allow him to spend time with her young children.


Radar Online has obtained a police report revealing that McDaniel was caught only when 8-year-old Anna told her teacher about McDaniel’s assaults.

Sadly, by this time the abuse had been going on for over six months.

"Anna told a teacher she had been molested by her stepfather, Mark McDaniel," reads the report. 

Caleb Clark – an ex-boyfriend of Anna’s – spoke to the National Enquirer about the report back in 2012:

"Anna told me that McDaniel threatened that if she ever told her grandparents what happened, he would kill them and her," Clark said. "That’s how he made her shut up about the rapes."

June Shannon is reportedly under investigation by the state of Georgia to determine if her children are safe living in her home.
