For those unfamiliar with this case, the Colorado City Police, like the Texas Rangers and the FBI believe that Shawn Adkins and Billie Dunn caused the death and subsequent disappearance of Hailey, who was last seen by a non suspected person on December 26th, 2010 when her old brother David left the home at approximately 9PM, saying his sister was playing video games at home. Hailey would never be seen alive again.
Police affidavit in the case show a startling array of behavior and information including:
*Shawn Adkins had previously threatened Hailey's life, along with Billie Dunn's, yet she invited him into the home anyway.
*Billie Dunn hosted a New Year's Eve party
*Billie Dunn and Shawn Adkins refused to cooperate, tried to fool a polygraph with drugs, but both eventually failed the polygraph.
*Drug purchases and use were rampant
*Child pornography, bestiality, serial killer literature, deer gutting videos, and home made porn found in the home of Billie Dunn and Shawn Adkins. This indicated the depth of perversion inside the home as sexual arousal comes at the abuse of children and of animals. Eventually the town spokesman told the public to "do the math" as drugs, violence, perversion and a missing child coupled with lying parents and caretakers gave the same conclusion Statement Analysis had from the first appearance of Hailey's mother.
In January, Billie Dunn appeared on the Nancy Grace Show with her very first answers indicating:
1. She knew Hailey was dead
2. She was in need of an alibi
From there, her story's "missing information" was picked up intuitively, howbeit slowly, by Nancy Grace. In the beginning, Marc Klaas, a frequent guest, praised Dunn, especially after spending personal time with her in Texas, only to later openly condemn her for lying.
Statement Analysis revealed the sociopathic nature of the lies told: lying from childhood, with a rage towards anyone who dare question her veracity.
Investigators closely monitored Billie Dunn's nightly appearances and read the Statement Analysis here each morning, confirming the accuracy of the analysis.
Deceptive individuals can be classified into various categories, but the most dangerous are those who distort or fabricate reality. This puts those who do into the rare < 10% category (90% + who deceive do so by withholding information rather than fabricating reality).
Billie Dunn, herself, printed out analysis after analysis and brought it with her to a television station asking her attorney, "Should I use his name?" later issuing a threat of law suit by her attorney, the bizzare John Young, who called Hailey "our daughter" and "our girl" in interviews. Later, Young would be arrested and suspended from legal practice, reportedly on cocaine, pointing a handgun at a Texas Ranger. In spite of aiming a weapon at a Texas Ranger (rumors said he was having an affair with the Ranger's wife), he lived to talk about it and entered rehab while suspended.
Some stunning Statement Analysis principles:
Shawn Adkins, even after reading analysis, in his appearances on radio and television, avoided saying "I did not kill Hailey." It is obvious that one could read analysis and walk up to a microphone and parrot a reliable denial, but even this he did not do.

The same principles applied to Casey Anthony were applied to Billie Dunn were applied to Charlie Rogers. All three came out the same. There are no changes in application or rules.

Billie Dunn is one who will file a lawsuit, even against legal advice. This is part of what make up a sociopath has. She, like Casey Anthony, will 'walk down the hallway to her office, escorting police' and go right off the edge of the cliff for one purpose:
She cannot bear being called a liar. She will file a law suit even if it means she will have to testify, which prosecutors will be drooling over to have done.
She can bear all sorts of insult, but not being called a liar. It is of the upmost sensitivity to this personality type as she has been surviving and living by deception since earliest childhood, where she suffered extreme abuse and exploitation at home. Deeply wounded in childhood, her perception of life, death, good, bad, right and wrong are askew due to the horrific crimes committed agains her. It became engrained in her personality from a very young age.
At this point, we can expect that she will make "noise" as she attempts to rehabilitate her image. She claims to have 'turned' on Shawn Adkins, but even this is thin. True, they could not have remained together forever, given the nature of the personality make ups, but she cannot go too far with her distancing as she will always fear that he will talk to police.
Her claims of having "my FBI guy" are deceptive in nature. The FBI that investigated knows and an agent is likely very happy to receive her calls.
Colorado City police have done what they could.
Prosecutors need to be certain that a jury will grasp everything they bring their way.
After the Casey Anthony jury, the game is changed. Shawn Adkins said his grandmother had access to his computer.
It is difficult for us to picture a juror thinking, 'this is reasonable doubt' but after the Anthony verdict, with the willingness of Cindy Anthony to perjure while under oath before God, prosecutors must be on high alert.
As she continues to speak, deception will be present. Even while memorizing the original script, she was unable to keep the story straight because it did not come from experiential memory. She took the script from a real case, but it was not her own.
There was never a sleep over planned by Hailey.
Who do you think made up this story, Shawn Adkins or Billie Dunn?
To consider this question, you might ask yourself:
Of the two, which was more likely to have read the story of the young girl Carlie Brucia, from true crime library that Dunn said she downloaded and printed at work. That story is here and the article addressing Billie Dunn's employment is here.
You might ask yourself, "which of the two, Dunn or Adkins, is likely to have read the story?" concluding that Dunn was the 'brains' of the two, but there is a far more important indicator:
Statement Analysis showed that the story was deceptive, as told, by Billie Dunn, on The Nancy Grace Show. While attempting to report what Shawn Adkins told her, she, herself, was indicated for deception. This means that she was not entering into Shawn Adkins' language, but was using her own.
Repeating a lie will not show deception. Deception is indicated because the person has exercised her will to deceive.
The story was Billie Dunn's and not Shawn Adkins.
Adkins personality includes bravado.
He is a fearful sort, which is why he loves scary masks. An example of a frightened person using bravado language is seen every day by bullies, but Shawn Adkins' own language is indicative of this very thing.
When confronted by police saying 'you threatened Billie Dunn', he confirmed it and added that he had threatened Hailey and Clint Dunn, Hailey's father. If they were going to accuse him, 'do it right' in his mind.
When asked by police, "Who should we be looking at?" in the disappearance of Hailey (which, by the way, is a great question to ask), Shawn Adkins boldly said, "Both of us", regarding himself and Billie Dunn. Both failed their polygraphs.
The polygraph itself is a window into Billie Dunn's personality and another indicator that she may file law suits, to her own detriment as she would have to testify.
The police asked them to take polygraphs and Adkins refused, and Dunn balked. His refusal and her hesitancy focused the investigation upon them, and not on a runaway, or a stranger abduction. They had reasons to pull away from the polygraph.
Next came the courting stage. This is where police were "nice" to her, gently reminding her that if she and Adkins have nothing to fear, that they should take it.
This went to the stage of showing up, walking out, or not showing up. At some point, police, in shuffling the deck (some police would be "good guys" (Texas Rangers) while some are "bad" (Colorado City) they knew to appeal to her ego and pride. Liars hate to be challenged.
They offered her 'counsel' in staying away from Adkins, which she feigned to accept, even while her language showed that they were together. (recall the radio program where she feigned break up with Adkins while he can be heard sitting next to her).
Billie Dunn called law enforcement back and volunteered, with Adkins to take the polygraph.
This is what she said to Nancy Grace, and it is true. She did contact them about the polygraph, and immediately, she was praised for it by the host and guests. Her statement was truthful: she did call them and did volunteer, but what she left out (which is what makes Statement Analysis more valuable than a polygraph) is the wrangling that took place beforehand. Eventually, this would come out in the police affidavit and she would be humiliated...again, on national television.
She could tell Nancy Grace that "we called and we volunteered" without the pronouns being caught...when someone says "we called", I always ask, "who, physically, made the call?" because of the pronoun usage.
She also left out something else critical to the account:
She and Adkins fought over taking the polygraph, but she, as the leader and dominant personality, prevailed. She convinced him that he could pass using anti-anxiety medication.
Police noted the struggle to get them to the polygraph, and now police noted the need to try to 'trick' the polygraph; not exactly the expected innocent behavior of a mother of a missing child.
Police sent her home.
On TV, she blamed them.
She was now forced with a choice:
Billie Dunn could either be called a liar by police, or, to her own detriment, would take the polygraph and have to rely upon her skill to keep her body cool under the pressure of lying.
|grown up hiding behind a mask|
She took the polygraph.
This is why I compare her to Casey Anthony, relying upon her own skills of deceit, walking down the hallway to her "office", with each step bringing her closer to being uncovered as a fraud, yet, step by step, she believed she would "get by" the police. Eventually, as we all saw on television, Casey Anthony's lies paid off as she lied, got her mother to lie, and got away with murder. Don't think the lesson of Casey Anthony was lost on Billie Dunn or the prosecutors.
If it comes down to the challenge of suing "important people" in her life, but by doing so, she will be undraped under oath, leading to prosecution, Billie Dunn may cut off her nose to spite her face, and do it.
The small percentage of the population who will deceive by fabricating reality and going into serious crime, will always bristle when their account is questioned.
In all the televised or radio broadcast appearances of Dunn, she was unable to bring herself to say "I told the truth." When challenged about the failed polygraph, instead of the simple, "No way! I told the truth!", she said she lost faith in the polygraph.
In sparing no expense in security for the President of the United States, and the most important people in the world today, those responsible for the security of such, rely heavily on the polygraph. They base their lives on the polygraph. These are those, in our world, who can afford the greatest means of security known to mankind, yet rely upon the polygraph in the screening process.
It is only the deceptive and those who defend them who disparage its results.
In the hands of an experienced polygrapher, one who will learn the subject's internal subject personal dictionary, it is a powerful tool.
When the results of the polygraph and Statement Analysis conclusions agree, deception is assured.
1. Billie Dunn and Shawn Adkins both failed their polygraphs when asked about the disappearance of Hailey Dunn.
2. Statement Analysis indicated deception in both, specifically related to the disappearance of Hailey.
3. Behavioral Analysis indicated both for guilt in the disappearance of Hailey.
4. Evidence showed that Hailey lived in a home of perversion, drugs and neglect. Child pornography (and perversion) with a 13 year old girl in the home is a recipe for the unthinkable.
Billie Dunn and Shawn Adkins must maintain some form of unity, even an uneasy peace or alliance, lest one budge or weaken, and make a deal with prosecutors.
It is her personality that can accept being labeled with immorality from pornography, even admitting having bestiality. This doesn't bother her, but question her veracity and out comes the attack. Just as "my FBI guy" is deceptive as is her "searching"for Hailey, or bringing people minor 'celebrity' through facebook, so it is that she will, eventually, bring about her own demise.
Eventually, Billie Dunn and Shawn Adkins are going to answer for the death of Hailey Dunn.
