Shawn Adkins Interview 2011
Shawn Adkins did two short interviews with BigCountry News. They are found here:
She's very outgoing and she loves her family. That's her number one thing. She's very involved in school, loves sports, and she's just overall a wonderful girl," he said on Jan. 3.
According to police, Shawn Adkins described her as promiscuous, boy crazy, on drugs, and mother had to talk to her about birth control in spite of being only 13 years of age.
Her number one thing is she loves her family, not that she is missing. This is a veiled attempt to portray the "family" in a positive light while the child is missing. Note the use of "wonderful" in comparison to what he told police when he disparaged Hailey.
"I didn't see anything out of ordinary other than the police saying she didn't take anything. That raised some red flags to us and really, really worried us."
Note that he, singular, didn't see anything out of ordinary but what the police said raised red flags to "us" (plural) and "really really" worried "us". Note the sensitivity of "worried" along with the fact that Hailey "left" without her favorite jacket and her mp3 player.
1. Note that he "didn't see" is in the negative, making it sensitive. He denies what he saw, but this was next addressed with not what the police saw, or didn't see, but said.
2. "some" red flags reduces the number = minimization, yet he contradicts this with "really really" worried, making worried a highly sensitive topic to him. Since anyone would "worry" over a missing child, why would "worry" be sensitive? This is indicative that the "worry" is not for Hailey.
3. Note the use of the word "us" here, in "worry", yet he began with the pronoun, "I", in what he didn't see.
Note also that he speaks to the emotion/thoughts of others who are not present nor in the room with him (see video). This is an area commonly associated with deception.
Note in the January 4th interview, he uses a "self reference" which tells us that he is not working from experiential memory but from his previous statement. This is common in deception since the liar wishes to keep track of lies.
The self reference is "like I said" which means he was not working from experiential memory, but from what he said that day before.
Note also the introduction of the word "normal" regarding the day.
When someone uses the word "normal" always flag it as sensitive. If a person says "I am normal" it is an indication that they have been held out to be "abnormal" as some point in life, either by their own accord, or by the opinion of others. When someone introduces a day as "normal", you can safely assume that it was anything but normal. Even a 2nd grade reader knows that when a story starts out with it being an "ordinary day" or a "normal day", they are heading towards something extraordinary or something out of the norm.
Shawn Adkins, "my main focus is hailey. we just want her to come home safe" shows change from singular to plural.
Note that he has other things to focus on, but Hailey is his "main" focus. What other things is he focusing on, other than a missing 13 year old?
"like I said she was just sitting in the living room watching TV like a normal day... and she said, 'Shawn, I'm going....'
1. As a self reference, it is not from experiential memory and I believe this is completely fabricated and not from any part memory. In listening to the "raw video", he does not appear to have said this to the interviewer, but, perhaps, to the police, indicating his need to 'stay to script' of what he and Billie Dunn had agreed upon as their story.
2. Shawn Adkins needs to tell us "sitting", which, in Analysis, is indicative of tension. Body posture often enters statements indicating an increase in tension for the subject. What causes tension at this point in the story, if Hailey is okay?
This particular time is sensitive; and is allegedly about an hour before the brother, David (16) had to climb through a window and said Shawn looked like a "deer in the headlights". This is tense and the fact that he feels it necessary to recount that she used his name may indicate that he is not only deceptive, but fabricating this exchange entirely.
"As far as me, Hailey, Billie and David, we get along fine. I would never do anything to that little girl. I love her with all my heart."
Note the order:
He and Hailey listed together, and Billie and David. This is, especially now, quite telling. We have learned how bonded David was with his mother, to the point where he, instead of searching for his baby sister, stayed back and played video games while his mother watched TV. Most 16 year olds would have gotten their entire school mobilized for searching, passing out flyers, hanging up posters, or anything the police would allow them to do.
The private investigator spoke how bonded the boy is with his mother, and would protect her at any cost.
Note that Shawn lists Hailey as next to him. Speculation from Hailey's own grandmother was that this was a sexual assault by Shawn that Billie came upon, in anger and lost her temper, but covered up for Shawn Adkins. Many believe that Billie Dunn could not be reported by Shawn since Billie could report that Shawn was sexually involved (abusive) with Hailey, as just 13 years of age. Note that child porn, along with home made porn, and bestiality were found in both of these people's possessions. Dr. Glass opined that Billie Dunn viewed Hailey as a rival for Shawn Adkins's affections. Take this with Adkins' description of Hailey as sexually promiscuous, and couple it with drugs and the de-sensitizing impact of drugs.
Note the unreliable denial of harming Hailey.
Note that the word "to" (it is not "with" as the article shows) that little girl shows distance ("that"). In terms of listing them as getting along, he and her are close; but now when it comes to harm, he distances himself from "that" little girl. In harm, she is "that", which is far away.
Interviewer: "...to the people pointing their fingers at you"
Adkins: "they're entitled to their opinion"
Innocent people do not allow for guilt that does not belong to them.
Here, instead of issuing a simple denial, he allows for people to own an opinion. This is not what innocent people do. They cannot allow people to think they killed a child, lest the search and hope end.
It is polite and accepting language; not something associated with innocents. Innocent people do not allow for another opinion or view. Whenever you hear someone allowing for guilt to be placed upon them, the acceptance is an indicator of guilt itself. For more on this, see similar reactions from Tiffany Hartley when posed with the same indication.
For Shawn Adkins, his involvement is not denied, but he allows for it to be an opinion that people are actually "entitled" to.
When he said that police should look at "the two of us", he was telling the truth.
When he said that police should look in Scurry County, he was telling the truth.
When he avoided saying that he did not harm Hailey, it should be believed. When he said he "would not", future, conditional tense, "harm" Hailey, it is also true. He could not, at this point, nor in the future, harm her.
He is unable to bring himself to say "I did not harm Hailey" which would have been very strong. Instead, he uses the most common deceptive denial: "would not" as a substitute for "did not."
In subsequent appearances, Shawn Adkins continued to avoid a reliable denial.
If a person is unable to say "I didn't do it", we will not say it for him.
