She would have to get permission from her PO to travel outside of Travis County.

We ALL know they are holed up together in Buda (pronounced Bewda). It's not that far from Nite or me.

I agree, he has one hell of a hold on her. I don't believe a word that comes out of her mouth! HOW could she co-exist w/the ONLY POI in the disappearance of her daughter?????

Gnreed, I see you online, good to see you back here. Was Clint at this vigil?
What I do not understand about LE is that surely local LE has to answer to county or maybe state LE????? I don't know the chain of command but I am having trouble believing that local LE isn't having to answer to a higher agency. I truly believe that local LE just wants this to go away and that's just so wrong.
A child is missing and they just do not care. Blows my mind.

Thanks Raine. I haven't heard if Clint was there. The quote from the Sheriff says it all: "There are no pending cases against Dunn or Adkins."

I think everyone should contact this Sheriff and ask him to clarify the CP that he CLAIMED was found.

Anyone have the email of the Sheriff? Anyone else we should contact? I'm ready to email everyone in or related to LE on this, it's BS that they're doing nothing about Hailey and the existence or non-existence of the CP. Even IF there's a child porn ring, an arrest should have already been made on the person who allegedly possessed the computer files! As far as I'm concerned LE is saying that Hailey does not matter.

Hailey Dunn: Vanished without a trace

It has been exactly eight months since she was reported missing by her mother, but still, there is no trace of Colorado City teen who would have been 14 years old today.

On Dec. 28, Hailey Darlene Dunn, 13, was reported missing by her mother, Billie Jean Dunn. Billie Jean’s live-in boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, was the last person to see Hailey alive. He has been named the prime suspect in the case, but, as yet, no arrests have been made.

Eight months after the teen vanished, there are still visible signs that of a concerned community. But the billboards that show her smiling face and sparkling eyes are fading. Across the street from where Hailey lived on Chestnut Street, two fences covered with stuffed animals surround a bench dedicated to Hailey’s memory and to commemorate the community’s hope for her return.

As the hot Texas sun parches the West Texas landscape, the searches for Hailey have wound down.

“We still have people calling us,” said Kristy Lloyd, a board member for Hailey’s Search. “We have discontinued regular searches due to the heat.”

But searchers had planned to continue searching Saturday and a prayer vigil and balloon release were scheduled for today to mark her 14th birthday.

Last week, would have been her first day in high school as she would have started her ninth grade year.

“We will never give up looking,” Lloyd said.

The case
Hailey was first listed as a runaway because at first, Colorado City officials were taking a wait-and-see approach. But on Jan. 3, Colorado City Police and the Mitchell County Sheriff’s Office called in the FBI and Texas Rangers and formed a task force. The 60-member team worked relentlessly to come up with clues about Hailey’s disappearance.

And the agencies continue to work on the case, Sheriff Patrick Toombs insists.

“We get about one or two leads a week,” Toombs said. “And we follow up on every one of them.”

According to affidavits from Mitchell County Judge Ray Mayo’s office, Hailey was last seen by Adkins on Dec. 27, when he said she went to spend the night with a friend. But the friend’s family would tell police that Hailey never showed up there that night, affidavits state.

Affidavits indicate investigators were looking at family members early in the case. A few days after her disappearance, investigators interviewed Adkins, and asked him who they should be looking at for answers as to her whereabouts and he responded “both of us,” meaning himself and Hailey’s mother Billie Jean, the affidavits state.

The affidavits also state Billie Jean and Adkins had a fascination for true crime, serial killers and horror films, and, during a search of the home, investigators found a box inside filled with hundreds of pages on murders and true crime. Billie Jean told police that copying and reading the stories was “a hobby.”

Both Adkins and Billie Jean failed polygraph tests, the affidavits stated. Adkins walked out of the test after refusing to answer questions about where Hailey could be found, the affidavits stated.

Clint Dunn, Hailey Dunn's father, said Hailey's 16-year-old brother David Dunn told investigators he returned home at about 4 p.m. on Dec. 27 and pounded on the door for about five minutes. Later, Billie Dunn confirmed that David had "indeed pounded on the door and nobody would let him in." Upon entering the residence through the window, David Dunn observed Shawn Adkins "standing in the hallway with a deer in the headlights look," according to the affidavits.

Investigators enlisted the help of cadaver dogs from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice and searched landfills in Abilene, Mitchell and Scurry counties. While the dogs hit on several items, no real evidence was ever found, investigators said.

Since then, investigators have searched locations in Mitchell, Howard and Scurry counties, concentrating many efforts in the small community of Dunn, 10 miles north of Colorado City in southern Scurry County, where they have searched this summer.

“We conducted three searches up there with the TDCJ officers on horseback and on foot and using a four wheeler,” Toombs said, but nothing was found.

THE PLAYERS
Billie Jean and Adkins have denied involvement in Hailey’s disappearance from the beginning. In early January, when investigators named Adkins as the only suspect, he moved out of the Dunn home to his grandmother’s home, located, oddly enough, in Dunn, Texas.

“I’m really scared,” Billie Jean said in an Abilene Reporter-News story about a month after Hailey disappeared. “Anything could have happened.”

Adkins has made very few comments during the past eight months. He did appear on “Nancy Grace” on HLN with Billie Jean. He later told the Associated Press that his life had “flipped upside down,” since Hailey vanished.

Hailey’s father Clint Dunn, was excluded as a suspect early on. In the weeks and months after his daughter’s disappearance, Clint Dunn would travel up and down the Interstate, all the way to El Paso, passing out fliers and looking for his daughter.

In February, Billie Jean’s mother, Connie Ostrander, was arrested for possession of drugs. Also in February, Clint Dunn, turned himself in on a traffic warrant and spent several days in jail. Toombs said he was just released from the Mitchell County Jail after serving a 60-day sentence to “sit out some traffic warrants and a possession of marijuana charge.”

Later, in March, Billie Jean was arrested for reportedly lying to police when they came to her house looking for Adkins. She told him he was not there, and investigators found he was.

Billie Jean, who Toombs said moved to the Austin area to get away from the “negative comments,” did not return calls for comment. Toombs said Adkins has also moved to central Texas but could not say positively that the two are together.

Evidence confiscated
Toombs and other investigators are banking on evidence obtained from two computers and several electronic devices.

Investigators collected evidence from the Dunn home and from the homes of Shawn Adkins mother in Big Spring and his grandmother in Dunn, Texas.

In February, results of a search warrant revealed that almost 109,000 images and videos depicting “deviant acts and pornography” were found on a computer confiscated from Adkins mother’s home in Big Spring. Adkins told police he went there the day Hailey went missing.

Likewise, a memory stick, taken from the Billie Jean’s bedroom drawer, contained an additional 320 images and videos of a pornographic nature, according to an affidavit from 32nd District Judge Glen Harrison, of Sweetwater.

Toombs said the computer and memory stick contained images of bestiality and child porn.

Then other digital devices were confiscated from Adkins’ grandmother’s home. The FBI and a computer forensics expert in Garza County continue to look for more evidence. So far, no charges have been filed and no arrests have been made, regarding the pornographic items found on the computers.

“You only get one shot at some things and we are going to make sure we get things right and make sure it is done right,” Toombs said.

Toombs said in the last several months, there have been bogus rumors popping up on Facebook, that Hailey has been found.

While the possibility still exists she will be found alive, Toombs said it is remote.

“We would like nothing more than to find her alive, that would be our greatest joy,” Toombs said.

From above:
"And the agencies continue to work on the case, Sheriff Patrick Toombs insists." -- What agencies? Toombs needs to elaborate on that statement otherwise it's just lip service. MOO.
"Toombs and other investigators are banking on evidence obtained from two computers and several electronic devices."
"In February, results of a search warrant revealed that almost 109,000 images and videos depicting “deviant acts and pornography” were found on a computer confiscated from Adkins mother’s home in Big Spring. Adkins told police he went there the day Hailey went missing."
"Toombs said the computer and memory stick contained images of bestiality and child porn."
Either some of LE are involved in trading images of CP and LE now wants to sweep the whole issue under the rug OR the 'deviant acts and pornography' ended up to be 18 and older, in that case they need to come out and state just that. Not that I believe that's the case but there's a remote possibility that some idiot thought the material was child porn and shot his mouth off to the media..?? Since bestiality is legal in TX (shouldn't be!) I guess that doesn't matter.
The FBI and a computer forensics expert in Garza County continue to look for more evidence. So far, no charges have been filed and no arrests have been made, regarding the pornographic items found on the computers. BS. If there were as many images of CP on the computers that Atkins used they don't have to *look for more evidence* regarding him! Do they think we are idiots?

“You only get one shot at some things and we are going to make sure we get things right and make sure it is done right,” Toombs said."
LE needs to hold a press conference to substantiate their findings or lack of to the public!
All of this is JMOHO of course.

I just listened to that interview with the blonde (Holly?), Billie and the other two.
First, was that Holly, the one who has been involved in so many searches? Whoever it is, she mentioned her daughter was missing and I didn't catch if she was ever found. Does anyone know?
Putting aside anything regarding Billie or Shawn, I'm glad these females went before the media and brought this all out into the open. It's just as we all have suspected, LE is not doing a damn thing. And for the Texas Rangers to say they are not involved? Well who gets involved if CC PD, the Sheriff's Office and the DA can't or won't communicate? This is BS!

After watching the interview several times, I am changing my mind. I believe these ladies are full of crap.
They seem to have fallen into BD's trap. I believe LE is working on this case and I believe LE has their reasons for not getting involved with these people.
FYI: Holly was the one in the video a couple of months ago smiling and laughing with Billie Dunn. Not sure why it was a celebration but she took the heat for it.
And another lie from BD. LE did search Sex Offenders residences in CC. I was there the day they walking every street and contacting SO. Some things never change. The women in the video seem to have learn to lie as Billie does. I will find out if the evidence I had tagged was picked up this week.
IMO LE would have been crucified for being there along with the two SUSPECTS in this case. JMO

gnreed I have to agree with you. I chose not to say it on my own because a lot of folks really like Ambers mother. I don't. She is the one that flew in and give money to Billie. She was with Mark Klass but I noticed Classy Klass choses to leave this whole bunch alone.

I would love to be a fly on his wall after this appearance of "four angry women".

I believe the cause is just I just have never liked this "means to the end". A bully interview.

Billie Dunn is a habitual liar. Therefore, anything any of those women said in the video, I do not believe.
I also do not believe LE including Texas Rangers and the FBI, did not investigate bones that were found.

BD continues to blast everyone including LE for not looking for her daughter. If I remember correctly, they were searching for Hailey the night BD was hosting her NYE party.

I believe we will be hearing from LE soon regarding these accusations from the three women and the liar.

Just wondering what Billie has to smile about? Her daughter is missing and her son is living many miles away from where she resides. The smile must be because, in spite of it all, she still has her toy boy Shawn in her life and in her bed.

COLORADO CITY - It's been eight months since teenager Hailey Dunn went missing in Colorado City and there's still no sign of her. Now residents are remembering another date, Hailey's 14th birthday.

It's supposed to be a day of celebration but instead August 28th is a solemn reminder that Hailey Dunn is still missing.

On Saturday, family and friends held a vigil to mark eight months since she vanished but also to remember Hailey's14th birthday.

"All over Facebook, it's happy birthday Hailey, we miss you come home," Kristi Lloyd said. "There were people that brought birthday cards and attached them to balloons to send to her."

Lloyd is the search coordinator for Hailey's Search and she said the timing is hard for everyone, especially her friends.

"They took it very hard," Lloyd said. "You know them being so close to her, one day they're fine and the next day, they're heartbroken. The school teachers know that she should be a freshman she should be in band, should be playing in all the sports.

Saturday's vigil also had some unexpected guests.

"We figured Billie would come," Lloyd said. "We didn't think Shawn would but everybody was good to each other and everybody was peaceful."


Billie Dunn moved to Austin after her daughter's disappearance. Lloyd said Billie again criticized law enforcement at the vigil.

"They were just saying they didn't feel like law enforcement was doing what they should do. I feel like they have," Lloyd said. "They're not forgetting Hailey. They're still going on leads and doing what they can to find her."

But even after eight months, Lloyd said she, along with countless others, still have hope.

"You look at cases where they're found ten or 12 years later and that's what we're hoping for is to bring her home," she said.

Lloyd said they did go out and search for any sign of Hailey on Saturday but because of the hot weather and limited people, they've had to limit their searches.

This has gotten out of control. I usually don't read Facebook posts about Hailey but did so today. It's reported that LE admits to no CP was found.
Who did they admit this to? Once again, I am not believing anything I read on Facebook. LE does need to step up to the microphone and set the story straight.

But, Yes..LE needs to step up to the mic and say something. They have CP in their possession or they don't. If so, they Will press charges or they won't. They still look at Shawn as the ONLY POI or they don't. bla bla bla.

Normal After Eight Months, Investigators Say Hailey Dunn Case Still Priority

Post by Nama on Tue Aug 30, 2011 10:10 am

Video on the link

After eight months since Hailey Dunn's disappearance and after her 14th birthday has passed, some volunteers have questioned law enforcement's commitment in solving the case.
It's been eight months since Hailey went missing from Colorado City.
Billie Dunn, the mother of the missing teen, told authorities she was going to a friends house, but she never arrived.
The case caught national attention and for months law enforcement agencies and search volunteers have been on a quest to find Hailey.
Carrie McGonigle of Team Amber said, "There is seriously a lack of communication between the Colorado City PD, the Sheriff's Department and the Texas Rangers."
Colorado City Police Chief Roy Owens told KTXS, "We are not giving up on anything. This is an ongoing investigation."
The Colorado City police told KTXS that in the beginning of the case the investigation was intense, but over time it does settle down.
Det. Kelsey Alexander said she wants to assure the community that the case is still priority.
Alexander said, "It's not getting brushed aside. We just, in order of the integrity of our case and investigation, we can't say what exactly we're doing. We always have to think that our person or persons of interest are watching."
On a daily basis, they are receiving tips, emails and phone calls about Hailey and continue to follow leads.
Alexander said they have several leads "even as far as Mexico, helping us look for her based on different leads and speculations."
A meeting has been planned for all the law enforcement agencies to meet and regroup on new information involving the Hailey Dunn case in the next few weeks.

I can believe that LE were dropping the ball on the Hailey case. The fact that CC PD made statements that they are not giving up on anything, it's an ongoing investigation, it's not getting brushed aside, etc, means nothing. Where were they the other night, not one representative from one agency could be present at the balloon vigil? And after those four females went in front of the press, LE now comes out and makes statements yet all LE agencies are not going to meet for a few weeks to discuss the Hailey case?????? WTF
I noticed not a word was mentioned about the alleged child porn. That's crap !

I didn't realize that the female doing most of the talking during the press interview the other night was Carrie McGonigle from Team Amber. I would think she would be familiar with LE doing their jobs or not doing their jobs after the horrible one year time Amber was missing. Whether BD has convinced Carrie that she's an angel or not shouldn't matter, Hailey is what/who matters and I'm glad Carrie called LE out.

Well how nice that everyone played nice when Shawn showed up. To have him there is like a slap in the face to Hailey.

I can see why LE was not at the vigil. As a LE officer, I could not be present when both suspects are also present. Eventhough it was for Hailey, I could NOT have been present with that scum (SA) there also.
I cannot defend LE as I have no idea where the investigation stands. I just cannot bash them for not being present at the vigil. They are in a tough spot. They are getting hammered by the locals. Maybe they deserve it, but I am more than certain if LE had been present, they would have been criticized for being there with SA also there. JMO

Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems as though BD is gaining support from a lot of people. Very strange.

Normal Porn in Dunn case not yet presented to grand jury Authorities still analyzing found images

Post by Nama on Wed Aug 31, 2011 12:05 am

The case involving the discovery of nearly 109,000 pornographic images on devices seized during the search for missing Colorado City teen Hailey Dunn has not been presented to a grand jury, and law enforcement officials say they're not sure when it will be.

Mitchell County Sheriff Patrick Toombs said Tuesday that J. Bruce Flournoy, a deputy with the Garza County Sheriff's Office, is still analyzing the data, including images of child pornography and bestiality, on the seized devices. Toombs said that during the most recent meeting of the investigation task force, Flournoy did not indicate how much longer his analysis would take.

Toombs said officials also are waiting for results from several devices being analyzed by the FBI in Dallas.

"They'll let us know when they're done," Toombs said.

Because of the statute of limitations on child pornography offenses, state prosecutors have up to three years from the date of the alleged incident to file charges. That limit goes up to five years for federal prosecutors.

In February, officials executed search warrants for Billie Dunn's house in Colorado City and for the home of Shawn Adkins' mother in Big Spring. Billie Dunn is Hailey's mother. Adkins, Billie Dunn's live-in boyfriend at the time of Hailey's disappearance, is the only named suspect in the case so far.

A computer was taken from Adkins' mother's home, and a memory stick was taken from Dunn's home. The fact that none of the devices was secured, and many people had access to them, is complicating the investigation, Toombs said. So, too, is the large number of files to be analyzed.

"There was so much of this stuff, on so many different devices, and in order to get an arrest, and eventually a conviction, we have to make sure we know who was responsible for what," Toombs said in May.

Investigators also are trying to determine what was downloaded intentionally and what may have been inadvertently stored on the devices.

Toombs said representatives from the agencies involved in the case — Colorado City Police Department, Mitchell County Sheriff's Office, 32nd District Attorney's Office, Texas Rangers and the FBI — had another meeting planned soon to discuss the status of the case.

"We do stay in touch, and we do meet," Toombs said. "We are continuing to pursue the child pornography case and the disappearance case. In the next couple of weeks, we'll find a time we can all get together and meet."

Toombs also responded to accusations leveled at the efforts of law enforcement during an impromptu news conference held after a balloon-release and vigil Saturday in Colorado City.

He said Billie Dunn, along with representatives of various search organizations, criticized the way the investigation was proceeding — specifically with regard to looking at local sex offenders — and the lack of communication between law enforcement and Billie Dunn.

"Well, for one, we have looked at every sex offender in the entire county. Multiple times even. We've looked at them and the FBI has looked at them, multiple times," Toombs said.

"And as far as communication, that was the decision of Billie and her attorney not to speak with us," he said.

Hailey has been missing from her home in Colorado City since December.

Enough gawking at the analyzing the images. Turn off the DVD player, get back to work and make an arrest!

I was just going to say the same thing. 7 mo. is long enough to determine who downloaded the CP. I don't buy what local LE is selling!

I had the exact same thing in my mind, especially "Enough gawking at the analyzing the images". I don't buy what LE is saying either, on both cases.

The last I heard from BD's attorney, John Young, he appeared live on a local news station. He stated he has instructed BD NOT to speak to LE. Now BD complains and people are starting to side with her. WOW.
I agree it is taking too long for LE to make an arrest on the child porn but we have no idea what is taking place.
I still hope they are attempting to link the CP and Hailey's case together. That WOULD take time.
I find it amazing that the four women can appear on TV and make wild claims and the majority of people believe them.
For anyone to believe that LE did not investigate the bones that were found is crazy. That would indicate that CCPD, Texas Rangers, FBI, and the DA's office all ignored bones being found.
THAT DID NOT HAPPEN. Be careful about what BD and the three BD supporters in that video are spewing out.
After watching the Casey Anthony trial, it should be very clear that it is difficult to get a conviction on anyone.

LE needs to make a move and show that they're doing something. IF there's any truth to the letter on FB as above, as far as I'm concerned LE needs to come out and stipulate what they're doing now. I don't mean give their case away but the public is losing faith in them.

I hope someone will bite and get Hailey's face out there again and if that's what it takes for LE to kick into gear, so be it. Nothing should be swept under the rug for any reason I'm going to fill out the form appealing to NG to Hailey's face back out there.

I haven't been on here, or anywhere else dealing with this case, in a very long time. I am not able to begin to catch up, and I cant wrap my feeble brain around what is going on. All I do know is that anyone with a speck of sense would know there has been something rotten in Denmark....oops, CC....since the beginning of this case. Wrap and I both agreed on corruption a long time ago, and to me, it goes way beyond corruption if someone with the volume of supposed CP is still running loose. If what LE reported was true, it speaks volumes about their obvious callousness and lack of regard for children. If it is dis-information, then shame on them. I believe with all my heart that SA and BD know exactly everything, and even in giving them the benefit of the doubt (innocent until proven guilty)....their silence is more deplorable by the day. The evil twins moved away, and yet no one is living in the house on chestnutt...am I correct there? Why not? Doesn't CD own it? Hmmmm......can you say luminol? I hold the opinion that SA, and BD as long as she keeps company with him, poses a grave danger to the community in which they live now, given the affinity for the violent and the macabre, and their increasing transient nature as well as lack of moral foundations early in life. There is also a never ending stream of drama that people seem to love and love to discuss it. Have you ever watched a magician at work? He is distracting you with one hand so that you dont realize he has done something right under your nose with the other, and yet there are oohs and ahhs over the illusion. I have to hand it to LE...a very good trick indeed. I believe there is at least one person in the honorable offices who knows what happened. I recently read somewhere that it is better for a millstone to be tied around one's neck and be thrown into the ocean than to offend one of the little ones. I hope anyone with any iota of information gets thrown in soon. I also read the LOVE of money is the root of all evil, and everytime something like this happens, there is money in it one way or another. Money and egos....and jobs. I hate this case with a vengeance, and I feel hopeless because LE WONT do anything, and helpless because I CANT do anything.I have no interest in discussing anything except what has a factual basis. All this drama is making me nauseated. But facts do tend to get in the way of a good drama, though. I will tell you this. Peta dropped the ball, and the Steve Wilkos show seemed to run into a brick wall. I wonder what they told Tim Miller. I guess my next step is to write the president. There has been technology in place since the 60's, and the satellites are so advanced now, surely someone can look at the archives and actually SEE what happened, there is no one out there who can convince me otherwise. In fact, if there was a group who could monitor those things, there would be a lot less crime, but then again, there would be no entertainment in the form of suspense and ultimately a trial that thousands will flock to, and millions will watch online. I can not see how anything good can come of this.

Hi Everyone.. I know I have been absent for a bit but I've been traveling for work and just haven't had time to drop by. I was in SC, TX and Iowa. And it was HOT HOT and HOT.

I have to admit, I have become very discouraged with Hailey's case and feeling like nothing is going to change. But, after the BS this weekend with the press conference and the vigil, I really hope LE is moving forward to make an arrest. I believe that Billie Jean and Shawn have become emboldened to come out from their seclusion and are now making statements. In fact, Billie Jean is posting on Facebook on the Hailey DMZ group. She is posting as her aunt Teresa Gaddis but also has an account with her name.

I am astonished at the change in people who have been sure it was Billie Jean and Shawn who hurt Hailey. Now those same people are all up in her business and being as sweet as pie to her. You have to go read for yourself. I won't make a comment in that thread because I think it's better to let her talk and maybe something will spill out. But the fawning over her is really gross.

Hi GnReed. The story behind LE not being at the vigil is that they had multiple emergency calls that they had to respond to and actually had to call for help from another county. There was a fire, a high speed chase and some break in. It's a small police organization and I guess it's easy to overwhelm them. That is what Cat Geiger stated on FB and she works for the local radio station there.
