I would think that they already have an idea by the cloths whose remains those are.
And, I would bet that Billie was told what the deteriorating clothing looked like. Therefore, Billie would KNOW this is her daughter. She knows. Shawn knows. I think Shawn's mother knows and possibly that perv cousin that dressed up w/him. MOO.

Hailey Dunn's Aunt Speaks Out

By: Jenne Anderson
Updated: March 22, 2012

BIG SPRING--On Tuesday, remains were found a mile away from Shawn Adkins' mother's home. He's the boyfriend of Hailey's mother, and the only person of interest in Hailey's disappearance. This location has even more significance because Adkin's cell phone records show that he was at his mother's house the day Hailey disappeared.

The remains are currently on their way to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner's office. We're told they were held up because of poor weather conditions. Once they receive the remains first they'll work to determine the identification.

They tell us they have three ways to determine the identification of the remains.

First they'll use fingerprints. If that doesn't work then they'll try dental records, and the last resort is DNA analysis. Which, they tell us is the longest of the three processes.

Local authorities tell us the remains were at least partially mummified. Authorities at the medical examiners office weren't able to give us any kind of time line of mummification, but they say it's all dependent upon the environment and weather conditions. Authorities refused to say if there were clothes discovered on the body.

Meanwhile, family members of Hailey Dunn say these last 48 hours have been very difficult "It's very emotional," said Hailey's Aunt, Dona Byerley. "In once sense you want closure and hope of finding out if this is Hailey. But then again you don't want it to be Hailey in the hopes that she may still be alive."

Hailey's aunt says she hasn't received any updates from authorities but says Billie Dunn, Hailey's mother is in contact with them, and is being very cooperative.

Hailey Dunn's Family Talks Amidst Human Remains Discovery

By: Brooke Thomas
Updated: March 22, 2012

Sources still tell KLBK News it is likely the human remains found in big spring are those of missing Colorado City teenager, Hailey Dunn.

We're waiting for a definite I.D. from authorities but much of the focus has shifted to the young cheerleader's family.

Her mother Billie Dunn and her mother's boyfriend at the time of her disappearance and the only named suspect in the case, Shawn Adkins.

They've been living in Austin since soon after Hailey went missing.

Both have returned to Colorado city in wake of this new discovery, although officials aren't saying who the body belongs to.

We've reached out to both Shawn Adkins and Billie Dunn and outside of 'no comment,' they're not talking, but their attorneys are.

Alex Eyssen represents Adkins and John Young is Billie Dunn's lawyer.

Both say their clients have made themselves available to law enforcement, but Eyssen said although they've attempted to make contact with authorities, no one from law enforcement has reached out to Adkins. This may be true Right NOW but I would bet the farm the feds w/be making contact w/him VERY soon!

As far as Billie Dunn and Adkins' relationship, many people are questioning the mother of a missing child, being with the only named suspect in the case.

Friends tell KLBK News the two are living together and Tuesday Adkins told us he and Billie Dunn share a cell phone.

But Young says Billie Dunn does not live with Adkins, he said it's hard for her to break the emotional bonds.

Eyssen acknowledges this body being found just more than a mile away from Adkins' parent's home, but he said that's irrelevant. REALLY?? I don't think so!

Young said Billie Dunn does not want to believe Adkins had anything to do with Hailey's disappearance, if he does though, she wants him punished. Of course she does not want to believe it. She's "in love". GMAB!!!!

"Let me be clear if Shawn Adkins is responsible for the death of Hailey or for Hailey being missing, Billie Dunn will be doing everything possible to assist law enforcement and prosecutors to ensure he is prosecuted to the full extent of the law," Young said.

"Shawn had nothing to do with her disappearance. We're not even sure that it is Hailey and we still hold out and hope and pray for her safe return," said Eyssen.

Both attorney's say they're clients hope the body found in Big Spring is not Hailey.

Young said every time the phone rings, Billie Dunn still expects it to be Hailey.

Both attorney's say their client's want closure and Eyssen said Adkins just wants to be cleared of any wrong doing. Good Luck With That, scum bag!

IF the remains are Hailey, it could get Very Interesting if Billie turns on him. She would Have to in order to look genuine and not end up being arrested as a co-conspirator. MOO.

There are only 3 scenarios I see w/Billie:

1. She knows nothing about what happened and is so lovestruck that she is in denial..isn't even questioning the timeframe when his cell was off for 2.5 hours or the fact the cell pinged in Big Springs and Colorado City when he told LE something else, or the fact that he was the last person to see Hailey, or he said he got fired when he didn't. IOW, DENIAL.

2. She knows Some Things that she has kept secret..a pact w/Shawn if you will. (And, if this is the case, I think she will let it all out if the remains are Hailey's)

3. She KNOWS exactly what happened and may have been a co-conspirator as she knew that Shawn was standing by Hailey's bedroom door and instead of blaming Shawn, she took her anger out on Hailey and they both did away with her.

What else could it be???

Hailey Dunn Case: Latest Updates

Updating…The remains have not been formally identified as Hailey Dunn’s, as the FBI has yet to release a statement.
Sources report that it was a non-law enforcement person who told media that the size of the hand was larger than a 5 year old child’s, and that there is evidence of female clothing, as well as a blanket that may be linked to the former home of Billie Dunn and Shawn Adkins.

Sources report that Billie Dunn was informed last night by an unnamed female friend, (non law enforcement) and that it was this area that Dunn was upset about being searched, and that the steady rain from Monday had done much to erode the shallow grave. It may have been this particular area that Billie Dunn sought information from the FBI regarding, which heightened suspicion regarding the area surrounding Shawn Adkins’ relative’s home.

Some sources report that there is an article of clothing that matches Hailey’s found on the scene, but this is also unconfirmed.

Police likley will speak to the unnamed female friend regarding the contact with Hailey's mother.

Shawn Adkins and Billie Dunn are the only two Persons of Interest inamed in Hailey's disappearance. .
If indeed, this is Hailey Dunn, Behavioral Analysis indicates that while Adkins drove to work for only appearance sake, he did so to attempt to confuse police, and had difficulty explaining his whereabouts when the cell phone pings put him in this area the morning he left work abruptly. Contact between Adkins and Billie Dunn will prove critical to the case, as investigators have maintained that Dunn and Adkins have withheld information on the whereabouts of Hailey’s remains while volunteers worked tirelessly to locate her.

WHY would she be upset about that area being searched unless she KNOWS it's her daughter. Reminds me of TMLS (for those that are new here, TMLS is short for The Murdering Lying Slut, Casey Anthony). The ONLY reason I can see her being "upset" over that area being searched IF SHE IS INNOCENT in all this is because it's so close to Shawn's mother. And, if that is the case, than she HAS to be suspicious of her love bug scum bag.

Shawn Adkins and Billie Dunn are the only two Persons of Interest inamed in Hailey's disappearance. .
News to me that Billie is a POI????? I am NOT a fan of Peter Hyatt at all. He thinks he knows it all. IF Billie is a POI, this is the first I've heard about it.

Police likley will speak to the unnamed female friend regarding the contact with Hailey's mother.
Three guesses on who that could be? MOO.

Shawn Adkins' Lawyer Speaks Out to Clear Up Unanswered Questions

Posted: Mar 22, 2012 6:56 PM CDT
Updated: Mar 22, 2012 7:34 PM CDT

by Anayeli Ruiz
NewsWest 9

BIG SPRING - The discovery of a body in Big Spring has brought the name Hailey Dunn back on everyone's lips. Add to the fact that Hailey's mother's live-in boyfriend Shawn Adkins is back in town, it's stirring up a lot of controversy.

Since the disappearance of the Colorado City teen we haven't heard much from Adkins or his side of the story. But on Thursday, NewsWest 9 got the chance to speak to his attorney and clear up some unanswered questions.

December 27, 2010, 13-year-old Hailey Dunn went missing from Colorado City. The only person of interest named by authorities was and still is Shawn Adkins.

"He knows he had nothing to do with the disappearance of Hailey Dunn," Alex Eyssen, Shawn Adkins attorney from Abilene, said.

More than a year later, we're getting answers to some burning questions from Shawn Adkins lawyer. Eyssen says Shawn is back in the area.

"He and Billie both have a strong tie to Hailey and they want to be close if in fact that is Hailey. So before talking to anybody, he made the decision that he needed to come back and return to the area and be close," Eyssen said.

The remains that were found happened to be only a few miles from Shawn Adkins mother's house, fueling the rumors. But Shawn insists he had nothing to do with Hailey going missing. Eyssen says Shawn is heartbroken and hopes that soon his name will be exonerated.

"He is saddened by it. I think the law enforcement focus on him has been unfounded and he would like to have his name cleared," Eyssen said.

But why did Shawn move away from Colorado City?

"In a small community like both Colorado City and Big Spring he could not go anywhere without being questioned and confronted about this matter. He could not find employment and he felt that if he was ever going to be able to live a life on his own, he would have to move," Eyssen said.

Shawn's lawyer tells NewsWest 9 that he doesn't agree with the polygraph test he took last year and he approves of Shawn walking out.

"When a polygraph changes from what should just be a question and answer session to a screaming match where someone is being pressured to make a fake false confession, it has to be ended," Eyssen said.

As for the statements where Shawn told authorities that they could find Hailey in Scurry County, he says they are false.

"I think a lot of the statements that have been attributed to him and others have been incorrect," Eyssen said.

During the investigation, court documents said a search of the family's home found a box containing hundreds of documents focused on mass murderers, serial killers and murders of family members.

Eyssen said this was all based on Shawn's interest in film and literature. Another court document states over 100,000 images of child porn and bestiality were found on a computer at the home of Shawn Adkins' mother in Big Spring.

"We have never, despite numerous requests, confirmed from law enforcement that there have been any of those items discovered and if they have been discovered, which we don't know that, they have not come from any source attributed to Shawn," Eyssen said.

Billie and Shawn are still in a relationship. Eyssen said Shawn Adkins is accessible to police and he has informed them of where he is and how he could be reached. Eyssen is in contact with both state and federal officials.

Only Named Suspect's Attorney Argues Innocence In Hailey Dunn Case
Mar 22, 2012 7:32 p.m.

COLORADO CITY, Texas - Shawn Adkins remains the only named suspect in the case of missing teen Hailey Dunn. His attorney told KTXS since the discovery Tuesday of human remains in Big Spring, Adkins has made himself available to law enforcement.

"I'm not comfortable disclosing his exact location and partly for his own safety as well," said attorney Alex Eyssen.

Adkins dated Hailey's mother Billie Dunn on-and-off the last four years.

The two were together in Colorado City on the one year anniversary of Hailey's disappearance.

Dunn's attorney John Young told KTXS Thursday, she and Adkins are no longer a couple. Since when? He was on NG Tues saying they WERE a couple. Looks like Billie is turning the tables on him already to either save herself or because it's finally hit her that her loving boyfriend Murdered her daughter.

"There is not a relationship today," Young said, "Nor has there been one in the recent past."This guy is Lying! I heard him on NG tell her that YES, they are still a couple. There was NO hesitation.

And he says if the remains are Hailey's, they will demand justice.

"If it is proven Shawn Adkins is the person responsible for injuring or ending that precious life, we want him prosecuted to the fullest extent the law will permit," Young said.

Affidavits KTXS obtained said Adkins was in the Big Spring area the morning Hailey went missing.

"I don't believe it implicates him in anyway," said Eyssen, "While it's awful any human remains would be discovered so closely to anyone's residence. It does not implicate my client in any manner."

Eyssen told KTXS it's unfortunate the public is not affording his client the presumption of innocence.

Forensic Anthropologist Surmises on Time Frame for Identification of Remains

By: BigCountryHomePage.com Staff Reports
Updated: March 22, 2012

Forensic anthropologist William Stevens says the amount of time it could take for a positive identification to be made on the body found in Big Spring depends on the condition of the remains.

"If a body is mummified like that usually I think we'd rely more on X-rays to look at growth and development to predict the age of a person. Positive ID would depend entirely on what is available for the suspective person, you know, X-rays or dental records which tend to be the easier route," Stevens said.

When asked the amount of time he would expect for a positive identification to be made, he replied, "Depending on the availability of records and anti-mortem X-rays and dental records, it can be done in less than a week."

Stevens also surmised what would be left after a long period of time has passed, based on the environment in which the remains were found.

"I don't know exactly the conditions or how deep the body was buried, but likely in the sandy desert environment, they could mummify quickly in that time preserving a lot if not all of the hair and soft tissues."

Stevens also says that with this past summer's record-breaking heat and dry conditions, the decomposition process would be significantly slower, helping to expedite the process of finding a positive identification to less than a week.

Last year both Clint and Billie Dunn, Hailey's parents, provided police with DNA samples.

Stephens says with a high profile case like this, DNA records would be readily available, which would also expedite the process in finding the identification.

Did they get a DNA sample from Shawn? I bet they didn't. They could have court ordered it, especially since he's a POI.

Normal Big Spring judge describes skull at scene; Colorado City abuzz with Hailey talk/ Skull wasn't real big, he says

Post by Wrapitup on Thu Mar 22, 2012 11:54 pm

By Greg Kendall-Ball
Posted March 22, 2012 at 11:40 p.m.

While law enforcement officials remained tight-lipped about human remains found Tuesday near a Big Spring airport, a Howard County judge provided details about the body not previously disclosed.

Quail Dobbs, justice of the peace for Precinct 2, was called to the scene Tuesday afternoon shortly after the remains were found. He said he saw a partially uncovered skeleton in the dirt.

"I saw a skull," he said. "There was a little hair, and it appeared to be dark in color. I couldn't tell the length."

"(The skull) wasn't real big," he said.

Dobbs said it was the most decomposed body he'd seen in his 13 years as a justice of the peace.

Preliminary findings, such as the determination of gender and age of the body, could be sent to law enforcement as early as today, a Fort Worth medical examiner's spokesman said early Thursday evening.

What has been revealed about the remains — and, perhaps more telling, what has not — set the nearby town of Colorado City abuzz.

When Hailey Dunn disappeared from her home there — less than 50 miles from where the remains were found — about 15 months ago, a wildfire of public and media scrutiny was ignited.

As the days and weeks stretched into months with no information as to her whereabouts, TV trucks rolled out of town, and the blaze faded to embers — interest kept alive by close friends and family.

But Tuesday, word of the discovered remains fanned the embers back into full flame.

The body was found less than two miles from a spot police knew a "person of interest" in their investigation, Hailey's mother's boyfriend, had visited the day Hailey disappeared.

"Everybody's talking about it," said Jim Baum, owner of Colorado City's KVMC radio station. "Everyone around town is asking 'what if this' or 'what if that.' Everywhere I've been today, I couldn't leave without discussing the case."

Besides just talking about the discovery of the remains, Baum said nearly everyone in town had expressed an opinion about whose they were.

"Almost everyone I've talked to has said it's her," Baum said, referring to Hailey, who was 13 years old when reported missing by her mother, Billie Dunn, on Dec. 28, 2010.

Thursday, about 10 volunteers spent hours tearing down and rebuilding "Hailey's Hope," a repository of stuffed animals, signs and notes from well-wishers left in Hailey's honor.

Originally assembled on a bridge near the community of Dunn, just outside Colorado City, the shrine had been moved to a parcel of city-owned property across from Hailey Dunn's home on Chestnut Street after it was defaced.

Recently, volunteers who maintained the memorial were told the city would be starting work on a water project at the site, and the area needed to be cleared.

Billie Dunn reportedly gave her blessing to move the items across the street to the house Thursday, which she and ex-husband Clint Dunn still own.

Glenda Turner, a volunteer who helped with the search for Hailey since the beginning, said she was glad to have the "busy work."

Turner said most people she talked to Thursday believed the remains were those of the missing girl.

"Everyone I talked to it's pretty much the same. They all think it's her, and they all think (Shawn) Adkins is guilty," she said.

Shawn Adkins, Billie Dunn's live-in boyfriend at the time of Hailey's disappearance, was the last person to see Hailey. Adkins has been named a person of interest in the investigation by law enforcement.

On Wednesday, the remains were removed from the site near the Desert Tanks oil fuel tank manufacturing facility near the Big Spring airport. They'd been discovered by workers Tuesday afternoon, and local police called in the FBI to process the scene.

Wednesday, as throngs of media looked on, the FBI's evidence response team from Dallas photographed and bagged the remains, which were to be sent to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner's office in Fort Worth.

A spokesman at the office said Thursday that, to his knowledge the remains had not arrived by the time he left, about 5 p.m.

During a news conference Wednesday, Sgt. Tony Everett, a detective and Big Springs police spokesman, said the remains appeared to be partially mummified. Everett said he did not know how long it would take a body to reach such a state.

According to the National Climatic Data Center, Big Spring received 5.2 inches of rain last year, the driest year on record. There were more than 70 days where temperatures were above 100 degrees, and 75 more days where it was above 90 degrees.

Dr. Dennis Dirkmaat, a forensic anthropologist at the Mercyhurst Archaeological Institute in Pennsylvania, said under those conditions, a body would mummify fairly quickly.

"In intense heat, and with a lack of moisture, a body could become desiccated very rapidly," Dirkmaat said. "It would take easily less than a year for mummification to occur."

Sources report that Billie Dunn was informed last night by an unnamed female friend, (non law enforcement) and that it was this area that Dunn was upset about being searched, and that the steady rain from Monday had done much to erode the shallow grave. It may have been this particular area that Billie Dunn sought information from the FBI regarding, which heightened suspicion regarding the area surrounding Shawn Adkins’ relative’s home.

I wonder what female friend said this? 3 guesses.
I don't buy the break up story between Billie and SA. I knew a woman just like Billie and they stand by their Man no matter what. It makes me sick.

It may help that John Young is in trouble. Getting Billie to turn on Shawn would be a huge benefit for his business.
With the national exposure this would bring, the chances of getting his charges dropped would increase.

However, from day one I believe Billie is to blame for Hailey not being with us. Shawn may only be responsible for removing the body from the residence.
Something about Billie from day one raised red flags. It appears she was and still is the ring leader. As it's been said over and over, a mother would not protect a scum bag that harmed her daughter when she herself could be charged.
Billie did this. IMO

I feel the same way ...there is so much stuff that ticks me off right now. First of all i can't understand why in the hell she would stay with him ?? Why was there no contact information for her ?? It's like she dose not even care packs her stuff and moves away ? How about staying there and going out everyday looking for her lil girl ? How about calling every news station every talk show doing everything in your power to keep people talking about Hailey ? If my child would be missing I'll make darn sure they have a number to reach me day and night and if it would be only for them to say someone saw her ...they don't have time to go look ? I would go and do it my darn self !!!
Yeah I know Innocent till proven guilty put something is very wrong here she knows what happend to her baby!
How there she lay down every night with the only POI ? It's sick !! She knows what happend to her and is either one of the most evil "Mothers" I have ever seen or she's just plain stupid and needs a good slap in the forehead to snap out of it ! Police tells me you are the only person of interest you can be sure to get the hell out of my house until i know you have nothing to do with it and I will follow up on you and I will question everything you say and I would give police everything they need to nail your a.. to the wall and after it's all done you can be darn sure I'm coming for you !!
You don't put nobody before your child ! Ever !
Sorry I'm pissed right now WTF

Normal Where's Hailey's Father? Family Members Give Conflicting Reports

Post by Guest on Fri Mar 23, 2012 9:46 am

COLORADO CITY, Texas -- KTXS has received conflicting reports from family members as to the whereabouts of Hailey Dunn's father Clint Dunn.
On Thursday the mother of Clint's second daughter and step-sister to Hailey, Naomi told KTXS Clint was working on an off-shore oil rig.
Naomi told KTXS the family relocated to San Antonio where they were waiting for Clint to return sometime next week, and then planned to return to the Big Country to be near the on-going investigation.
KTXS also contacted Clint's mother Connie Jones, who said she no longer speaks to Clint. Nevertheless, she said that a friend of hers told her she had seen Clint driving in Snyder.

I know there was two other men missing in the area and only one family member of one of the men thought it could be their missing person. The other family said the circumstances didn't match up...... This is indeed SO strange to me, especially with all the information we were getting from Billie D's attorney.. I was so sure this was HL's remains... pulling hair

Autopsy Determines Big Spring Remains That Of A Male
POSTED: 11:57 am CDT March 23, 2012

Text Size
BIG SPRING, Texas -- According to the Big Spring Police Department, it has been determined the remains found in Big Spring Tuesday are that of a male.
Detective George Oliver with Big Spring P.D. released a statement Friday that the autopsy of the remains found in Big Spring Tuesday were male and nothing else has been determined.
According to Detective Oliver another release will be put out following completion of the autopsy and the preliminary report from the Tarrant County Medical Examiner.
This information conflicts on-going speculation this week that the remains were that of missing Colorado City teen Hailey Dunn.
Dunn, then an eighth-grader at Colorado Middle School in Colorado City, has been missing since Dec. 27, 2010. Her disappearance sparked a massive search by law enforcement and by hundreds of volunteers over the next few months searching through rugged areas in Mitchell and Scurry counties and surrounding areas.
She has never been found, and there have been no arrests in connection to her disappearance.
The last person who claimed to see her alive is also the only named suspect in the case: Shawn Adkins. Adkins was the live-in boyfriend of Hailey's mother, Billie Jean Dunn, and lived in the same house with Hailey.
Adkins left his job the morning that Hailey disappeared, and Adkins' story about where he went that morning has raised questions among law enforcement, but he admitted to authorities that he traveled to his mother's house in Big Spring on that day.
Billie Jean Dunn admitted that both she and Adkins have failed lie detector tests during the initial stages of the investigation in January 2011.
About five months after Hailey's disappearance, the couple moved to the Austin area.http://www.ktxs.com/news/30747442/detail.html

I went back and pulled the names of the two active cases and names of the men from page 2 of this thread:


Everett pointed out that there are two active missing person cases in Big Spring: Bobby Marquez and Arling Bynum. Little information was immediately available about these two cases. However, Everett said that Bynum has been missing since 2003.

Big Spring--40 year-old Big Spring Resident William Arlin Bynum went missing back in 2003 after last being seen at a bar in downtown Big Spring.

Upon hearing that remains were found, Bynum's mom Deanna Hartford says that all she wants is closure.

"We would like for it to be him so we could have some closure and give him a resting place," said Hartford.

Hartford says that it's difficult losing one of her own.

"Arlin was our youngest child and it's just hard to be with him 40 years, everyday of his life and then all of sudden he's gone," said Hartford.

But they're not the only family dealing with a missing family member, 29 year-old Bobby Marquez Jr. disappeared in 1998 after he was last seen at a friends house. Marquez's uncle Raul Marquez says he agrees with Hartford's feelings.

"The family still wants some closure to it and you always hope that that's it so that we can close the case and move on with life," said Marquez.

But Marquez says that he and his family are not too sure the remains found are his nephew Bobby Jr.

"I've talked to some of the other family members and they also feel that it might not be Bobby Jr. because of the location," said Marquez.

Though Hartford and Marquez there's still hope, both just want an answer and continue on with their lives.

"We have been waiting for a long time and closure is always good, to close the case and move one with life but if it ain't, it ain't," said Marquez.

"I still have hope that he might come home but I know he's not going to, I just want them to find him so we can bring him home so we know where he's at," said Hartford.

West Texas cops say remains found are male

Posted: Mar 23, 2012 12:25 PM CDT
Updated: Mar 23, 2012 12:25 PM CDT

BIG SPRING, Texas (AP) - Authorities in West Texas say a medical examiner has determined that remains found near an airport are male.

Big Spring Police Sgt. Tony Everett said Friday that more information will be released as the autopsy continues.

The FBI started collecting and analyzing evidence after some workers found the remains in a pasture Tuesday.

The determination of the gender ends speculation that it was the body of a 13-year-old girl who's been missing 15 months. Hailey Dunn went missing in Colorado City, about 40 miles east of Big Spring.

The unidentified remains were found a mile from the home of the mother of the person of interest in the case, the boyfriend of the teen's mom.

No one has been arrested in Hailey's disappearance. Her picture has been on 100 billboards.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

First of all, there were 2 people missing from Big Springs. One was an ADULT male, the other an ADULT female. I got their names and googled them. So, IF this is a male, it has to be a child. We were told that the hands were the size of an adolescent. Is there a male child missing in or around Big Springs????? Gnreed, I would LOVE your take on this!

As far as BJ's statement, I also have to wonder. Could they be wrong? Maybe we were all hoping this was Hailey simply because it would end speculation on where she is and due to the fact the body had been there for some time and was so close to Shawn's mom's home, and the hand was "small" in comparison to an adult...Of Course we and Everyone thought this was Hailey.

I have always believed she was trafficked out. When this body was discovered on Tues, it made me think I had been wrong. Now, I don't know What to think. We all thought this was a slam dunk and Billie would turn on Shawn. What do you want to bet, they w/return to Austin and Really celebrate?

At this point, I wonder if we will EVER know what happened to Hailey!!

BJ texted me and before I even looked at my phone, I knew it was about this case. I have to say, I was Shocked to my core when it said the body was that of a MAN!!

Could this be the man that has been missing for (I believe) 8 years???


p.s. Riley's Mom, It's SO good to see you!!!!

OK, I thought both that were missing were male. Of course, if this is one of the two that have been missing, we need to be thankful he's been finally found! Just disappointing this is not Hailey as it takes us back to square one. What happened to her and where is she?

NO Wonder Shawn was so readily eager to assist LE in any way he could. He KNEW this was not Hailey.

I was thinking the same thing Sly, but who knows if they even really know how long those bones have been there.

@ Wrap, don't duct and run ... You are correct.. LE has had their head up their ARS from day one down there seems like.

I have always thought and now still believe Hailey was sold into the human trafficking slavery :( Either that, or She is still buried somewhere out there :(

I was duct and run due to saying the FBI has done a poor job in this case.

I am AGAIN of the opinion she was sexually trafficked out. I think that Billie and Shawn were in debt due to drugs. Also, look at the people Shawn hung out with. I think he and possibly Billie wanted her out of their lives because she was growing up, getting her figure, was just beautiful and the perv Shawn "fancied" her. I think Billie would sell her soul to the devil (and has!) for Shawn. So, the solution was to sell her daughter to the devil.

I wanted to believe the remains were hers. But, I am back to my original thought. I just hope wherever she is, she is alive. I think of the Carina Saunders case. For any of you who are not up on that, look it up on the search icon here. Horrific!

It has been determined the remains found in Big Spring Tuesday are not Hailey Dunn's. The remains are of a male victim, according to Big Spring police.
Det. George Oliver of the Big Spring Police Department released a statement Friday that an examination of the remains found in Big Spring Tuesday revealed that the remains were of a male.

He said that nothing else has been determined. He said a news release will be put out after the completion of the autopsy and the preliminary report is released from the Tarrant County Medical Examiner's Office.

Peeps are agreeing w/me on that FB page re: Hailey being trafficked out.

After this search turning up a male, and so close to Shawn's mom's home, it stands to reason (as stated upthread) that Hailey MAY not have been his first rodeo. I put Nothing past him. Any "man" who would have that much child porn and beastiality and also make those slasher films, has IMHO no scruples, no conscious, Nada! He is Capable of anything!

No Closure In Hailey Dunn Case: Friends, Neighbors Stunned By News

By Brittany Molinar, KTXS News
POSTED: 2:16 pm CDT March 23, 2012
UPDATED: 3:10 pm CDT March 23, 2012

COLORADO CITY, Texas -- Friends, neighbors and searchers in the Hailey Dunn case reacted to shocking news Friday afternoon with mixed emotions.

Officials announced that the remains found in a shallow grave in Big Spring on Tuesday were not the remains of Colorado City teenager Hailey Dunn.

Many who have followed the story for 15 months since Hailey Dunn disappeared were expecting some closure Friday. They were stunned by the news that the remains were of a male.

“We have mixed feelings about the news,” said Kristy Lloyd, a volunteer searcher in the group “Hailey’s Angels,” which has spent hundreds of hours searching for her.
“We wanted closure,” she said, “but this gives us hope that she’s still alive.”

Several other neighbors and friends indicated they would like to have had closure in the Hailey Dunn case, but they are now praying for the family of the victim found partially buried Tuesday just east of the airport in Big Spring.

Hailey Dunn has been missing since Dec. 27, 2010, when she was last seen by Shawn Adkins, the live-in boyfriend of Hailey’s mother Billie Jean Dunn.

Adkins remains the only named suspect in the case, although no arrests have been made.

I guess Shawn and Billie felt confident enough that it wasn't her and that's why they came back.

I've heard quite a few stories on where Clint is..

Someone said they saw him driving around..

Somebody else {Naomi?} said he was working on the pipeline. Does anyone know for sure where he's been?
Does anyone in that family ever tell the truth? jeesh..

I find it odd that he didn't go down to the area either, Gnreed.

I was so thinking this was Hailey and those two idiots would finally get what they deserve !!
I also was thinking and i know it's sounds a bit far fetched that they should take one or two more good looks around that airfield and the surroundings... if it is possible for a body to be hidden there for so long Mr. Marquez has been missing now for 14 years and William Bynum for 9 perhaps there is more to be found ???

"We have been told that it is, that the remains are that of a male," Sgt. Tony Everett of Big Spring Police Department said today.

News that the remains discovered in Big Spring Tuesday afternoon are not those of Hailey Dunn has given volunteer searchers a renewed energy in the search for the missing Colorado City teen.

"That has lifted a burden off of our hearts and we have hope now," says searcher Terrie Newcomb. "We have hope that she is still out there somewhere. Alive."

The group as been working on Hailey's Hope, a place filled with stuffed animals sent from all over the nation where people can come to meditate and pray.

This morning the mood was somber, but hopes are high now, and searchers plan to continue searching as soon as tomorrow.

The group had a search dog scheduled to assist in a Wednesday search, but it was canceled with the news of remains found in Big Spring.

"We're going back to it. Tomorrow we're going to search," Newcomb says. "We're not giving up."

Now the group can stop wondering and get back to business.

They HAD made plans for a search dog out of Maine to come to the area, but now that the remains are not Hailey's, they cancelled. Why not STILL bring the dog???

It's not Dunn; Big Spring remains male
Families of missing men in the area wait for autopsy results

By Denise Blaz Scripps Newspapers
Posted March 23, 2012 at 9:21 p.m.

ABILENE — When it was determined Friday that human remains discovered in Big Spring this week were that of a male, new hope might have sparked for some families of missing people.

The announcement, however, briefly flattened hope for supporters and family members of Colorado City teen, Hailey Dunn, who was 13 when she was reported missing Dec. 28, 2010. At the time of the discovery Tuesday, speculation of closure to the Dunn case quickly spread throughout the region and then went national.

John Young, who represents the missing teen's mother, Billie Jean Dunn, told the Reporter-News that the Dunn family remains hopeful the girl will be found.

"She's pleased that we have hope for Hailey again," he said about his client's reaction to the news. "She's now grieving for someone else who has lost a loved one."

In a prepared statement issued by his attorney, Shawn Adkins — the live-in boyfriend of Hailey's mother at the time of the girl's disappearance who has been named a person of interest by law enforcement — said Friday afternoon the announcement that the body wasn't Hailey was bittersweet.

"First and foremost, it provides hope for the possible safe return of Hailey," he said, adding he wished to extend his prayers to the family of the not-yet-identified victim.


Mitchell County Sheriff Patrick Toombs, who has investigated Hailey's disappearance from the beginning, said perhaps discovery of the remains will breathe new life into the unsolved case.

"It's a good thing and a bad thing," he said. "It's one of those deals. We're sad it wasn't her, but in another way I think we'll be getting more calls and different leads. ... I knew it was going to be a 50 percent chance."

A preliminary autopsy has yet to be performed on the remains unearthed by fuel tank workers Tuesday at their work site at Big Spring McMahon-Wrinkle Airport, according to the Big Spring Police Department.

The remains arrived at the Tarrant County Medical Examiners Office on Friday morning. No other information has been released about the remains.

Forensic anthropologists say a positive identification on the body could take a month, at most, to complete.

The elimination of Hailey as the victim raises the question of who might have been found in Big Spring this week.

Five missing people were last seen in the city, according to the Department of Public Safety website.

The criminal investigations date back to 1979, according to the DPS. In two cases, foul play is possible. Out of the five cases, only one is described as being a woman.

Mark Allen Merritt was a 21-year-old man at the time of his disappearance May 1, 1982. No other details were available in Merritt's case.

Russell Gray, a then-32-year-old man, was last seen inside a bar in Big Spring on July 1, 1986. According to information from police, Gray might have been taken against his will.

Thomas Stephen Blake, a then-30 year-old man, was last reported seen Aug. 1, 1987. Authorities say Blake's tractor-trailer rig, with all his belongings, was located four days after his disappearance.

William "Arlin" Bynum, a then-40-year-old man, was last seen Aug, 15, 2003, leaving a bar and grill with an unidentified man after signing a $17 tab.

Bynum's truck in the restaurant's parking lot was the only evidence left behind, and foul play is suspected.

His mother, Deanna Hartford, said she still remains optimistic about finding her son.

"Mothers are not supposed to bury their children," she said this week. "But that's my baby, and I want to know where he is."
