Shane Finley is a minor character in Red Dead Redemption 2.



Shane Finley is a criminal wanted for theft, cattle rustling and child murder. He had a bounty of $400 and was wanted in five states. A newspaper article states that Finley has evaded capture multiple times and is adept at wearing disguises.[1]

Sadie Adler went after his bounty and found him disguised as a lady in a house for fallen women.

Events of Red Dead Redemption 2

As Sadie was bringing Finley in for the reward money, rival bounty hunter, James Langton stole Shane Finley from her near Armadillo. Sadie and John go to Pike's Basin to recapture him from James Langton and his men. After dealing with his men, John and Sadie take him to Blackwater to collect his bounty.

  • The player can read about Finley in newspapers before "An Honest Day's Labors".
    • Despite this, John will still ask Sadie about his crimes, thinking he is only a cattle rustler.
  • Despite Chief Dunbar saying that Finley will be hanged, the player cannot witness his execution.
  • Shane Finley can also be brought in dead; Police Chief Oswald Dunbar will express his disappointment that he won’t see Finley hang, but he still pays the $400 bounty for Finley's capture nonetheless.
