State Police filed criminal charges Tuesday against 49-year-old Shaun Long.
A criminal complaint filed by Tpr. Balcik, of PSP Butler, indicates the investigation was initiated after a woman who was later identified as Kayla Dunlap, 28, of Callensburg, was found dead on September 17 in a wooded area along Lake Road near Oneida Valley Dam in Oakland Township, Butler County.
“Based on evidence found at the scene, it is believed that Dunlap was left on the side of the road after she died in a different location.
Shaun Long was interviewed on September 18, in relation to the whereabouts of Dunlap and indicated he last saw her when he left his residence on September 16, between 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. Long’s residence is located on Eakin Road in Scrubgrass Township, Venango County. Further interviews corroborated that Dunlap slept at Long’s residence until the early morning hours of September 16 and confirmed it was her last known location. The next time that Dunlap was seen occurred when she was found dead. According to cell phone records, this was all a lie.
he cell phone data received indicates Long was in close proximity to where Dunlap’s body was discovered on Lake Road. The data also contradicted Long’s statement to investigators about where he was at that time.
Aknown female snitch, who was in jail on unrelated charges at the time of the interview, said Long gave Dunlap five bags of fentanyl when she arrived at Long’s residence around 1:00 a.m. on September 16. She said she was there when Dunlap overdosed that day, and she gave Dunlap Narcan in an attempt to save her life, but the dose was unsuccessful and Long allegedly refused to call 9-1-1.
It was also determined that Long allegedly provided false information in what police said was an attempt to impede the investigation. Furthermore, he allegedly attempted to conceal the woman’s involvement as a witness to the crime, according to the criminal complaint.
Long is charged with the following crimes.
– Drug Delivery Resulting In Death, Felony 1

Due to being considered a flight risk, Long was denied bail and lodged in the Venango County Jail.
