Past History

Shane came to LA with dreams of an acting career. Things didn't go as planned and he soon found himself homeless. This situation put him in a position to witness Darla's accidental death. He kept this to himself and, when he got work as a landscaper in Taylor's yard, he planned to blackmail the family with the information. That changed when he met Phoebe and an accident incapacitated him from working. The Forresters paid all of his medical bills and invited him in, treating him well. This was enough to dissuade him from pursuing his blackmail scheme and, when the truth came out of Taylor's involvement, he spoke out in her favor. Although he pursued a relationship with young Phoebe, the family barred him from seeing her and her attentions shifted soon elsewhere as he drifted out of the picture.

Shane became obsessed with Phoebe and in an attempt to land a client for his recycling company so they could have a future together, tried to hit Forrester up for support After they threw him out of the building, Shane came back looking for Phoebe, but ran into Ridge instead, who tired to call the cops. Shane stopped him by pulling out a gun. Ridge tried to wrestle it away from, but it went off and killed Shane. Ridge took Shane's body on Nick's boat, went out to sea and threw him overboard along with the gun.
