KANSAS CITY, Kan. — The Wyandotte County District Attorney’s Office announced on Thursday that Shane McClure is now charged with three counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child and one count of sexual battery.

McClure, 36, a Kansas City, Kansas firefighter was arrested at his home Wednesday morning, where his family of five lives.

A KCK neighbor of the McClures who wanted to remain anonymous said McClure was recently re-married, living with three children and his wife. Neighbors say they would often hear crying coming from the home and the family never spoke to anyone.

“Very… very much to themselves. Not happy. Would not ever acknowledge someone being around. Not say hello,” the neighbor said.

Investigators aren’t saying much about the current allegations, but court records show McClure was divorced in 2014 and the divorce papers note an emergency motion to terminate all parental contact between McClure and a child. Neighbors say he has a teenage daughter from his previous marriage.

It’s unclear what relation the child in the investigation had to McClure.

The McClures didn’t respond when FOX 4 reached out for comment. McClure is being held at the Wyandotte County jail on $150,000 bond. The KCK fire department says McClure will be on unpaid suspension, pending the investigation.
