Report: Scurry County Remains are Hailey Dunn




We have preliminary report that Texas officials are set to announce that the remains found in Scurry County are those, indeed of missing 13 year old, Hailey Dunn.

This is the county in which Shawn Adkins was noted as truthful when he told investigators where to search for her, in January of 2011.

It is not known, as of yet, what, if any, they will speak about in the upcoming press conference.

Another report says that family has gone to Austin to pick up Person of Interest, Billie Jean Dunn, and that it is not known precisely where Shawn Adkins is today, with some reports stating that he is near Scurry County.

Poor Hailey. Even though I expected it, it doesn't make it any less heartbreaking. Rest in Peace Hailey.

My sentiments exactly Bonnie Blue.

God is taking care of Hailey now, and I hope LE will soon take of Shawn and Billie by serving them with all kinds of arrest charges! Rest in peace, Hailey. Justice is coming.

RIP Hailey. At last you can be laid to rest. I take no pleasure in hearing that my suspicions were right all along. So incredibly SAd to know that the very person(s) who were in charge of loving and protecting this child are the very ones to blame for this atrocity!

Why family?

Peter, what happened to the post: Report: Shawn Adkins to Roll on Billie Jean Dunn"?

Did BD make a deal when she was in town earlier? Has she put the whole thing on Shawn? Wow! And so it begins...

If she is guilty. Throw her sorry ass in the back of a squad car and haul her in kicking and screaming!

This is incredibly sad but I'm happy she's found. More than anything, I wish she was found alive but I also wish her remains would've been found sooner. I hope Hailey will now get the proper recognition she deserves. She is hope she is free. She's no longer one of the many, many missing children never to be seen again.

Justice for Hailey.

It is not known precisely where Shawn Adkins is....I hope in custody and telling them everything he knows.

Thank God!

Thank you Peter and Heather for never letting Hailey's case go and for showing us the light. You showed us this was Hailey and now we have the official word. I look forward to learning more.

Thank you Pointhunter for finding Hailey so she can be laid to rest with the respect and dignity she deserves. Please be careful. You need to take the threats seriously.

Seagull said...

Although the majority of us felt it to be true, It's a sad day hearing the news. Statement Analysis works. I agree completely with Jen, may justice be swift and may Haileys death not be in vain. If ever there was a test case for the veracity of Statement Analysis, this is it.

Hailey, may you rest in peace with all of the other angels.

John Young, the lawyer for the family of Hailey Dunn, confirms to the Odessa American that the bones found in Scurry County last month are those of missing Colorado City teen Hailey Dunn.

The remains were found last month. Dunn was reported missing on Dec. 28, 2010, from the family's home in Colorado City. A press conference was called this afternoon in Scurry County.

Several law enforcement agencies converged on a location near Lake J.B. Thomas last month after human remains were found there, officials from the Department of Public Safety reported.

Human bones were found at a location south of Snyder near Lake J.B. Thomas, Senior Trooper Sparky Dean reported at the time.

Speculation began immediately after the discovery about whether the remains are those of Dunn.

Billie Jean Dunn, the mother of the missing teen, was in contact with investigators following the discovery of the bones, the OA reported last month.

Dunn reported her 13-year-old daughter missing Dec. 28, 2010, from the family’s home in Colorado City. Since then, there has been very little evidence uncovered involving her disappearance. Shawn Adkins, the then live-in boyfriend of Billie Jean Dunn, is the only person identified as a suspect by Colorado City police. No arrests have been made in the case.

The remains were found near the lake about 22 miles west of the community of Dunn, where Adkins lived with his grandmother following the teen’s disappearance.

Dean did not know what types of bones had been discovered. However, Billie Jean Dunn said via text message last month investigators said that “as soon as they can compare dental records they (investigators) will let me know.”

An FBI evidence-response team had been at the scene of where the remains were found.

The Texas Rangers requested the FBI’s assistance, which is routinely done because of the FBI team’s expertise on processing and collecting evidence, Chaumont said.

When asked if the FBI agents were on scene because of the possibility it could be Hailey Dunn, Chaumont could not speculate and referred to the local law enforcement. She did say that the evidence-response teams are called at the assistance of local law enforcement.

The bones were found by an individual who immediately contacted the Scurry County Sheriff’s Office, Dean said. Scurry County investigators enlisted the assistance of the Texas Rangers and the DPS.

Because of the extreme decomposition, investigators were unable to determine the gender and age of the bones, including whether the remains are that of an adult or child. Billie Jean Dunn said investigators did not tell her whether clothing was found near the remains.

Dean said the remains were sent to a medical examiner either in Lubbock or Tarrant County.

“We are treating this as a crime scene,” Dean said at the time. “We want to make sure that we preserve any evidence that may have been left behind.”

An expert in identifying human remains, Dr. Roger Metcalf, who works in the Human Identification Laboratory in Tarrant County, said that with skeletal remains there’s no way to tell how long it might take to identify a person. And it’s possible that the skeletal remains might never be identified, he said. Metcalf was speaking generally and not specifically about the remains found in Scurry County near Snyder.

Hobnob said...


The probability of identifying a person with just a skeleton is elevated if they’re part of the DNA database, or if they can be linked through their dental records with the person’s dentist, through X-rays or other internal tracking signs such as the serial number on a hip replacement, he said.

Hailey Dunn’s mother Billie Jean Dunn said that she submitted DNA to law enforcement following her daughter’s disappearance. DNA from Hailey’s grandparents and her biological father, Clint Dunn, was also submitted, Billie Jean Dunn said.

Almost one year ago to the day, on March 20, 2012, police in Big Spring found human remains near the McMahon Wrinkle Airport. Just two days later it was discovered that the remains were those of a male and that they had been in the location on the southeast corner of the airport at a steel oil tank manufacturer for quite some time.

Relieved said...

I had no doubt that Hailey died 2 years ago. Still having it verified makes me incredibly sad at this announcement. Sad for the past. For Hailey this isn't ongoing. Hailey is and has been far removed from all of this for 2 years and has been in the loving presence of her heavenly Father. According to my beliefs, she has no need of justice in this world and no memory of the pain that was inflicted on her. I don't believe she is resting in peace, I believe she has been dancing with joy for 2 years. Please, no one misunderstand. I'm not justifying what happened to her and I'm just as relieved her remains were found, and I'm anxious to see Billy and Sean pay for what they did to her. But it's so comforting to know Hailey doesn't have to be aware of any of it. Just my personal beliefs

Relieved at 5:00 p.m., just as the aethists have expressed their beliefs; I wish to share in your beliefs. Haileys' remains, not Hailey, was lying out in the prickly and desolate thickets, in the cold and blistering hot Texas sun all this time, thrown away, rotting and knawed on by animals.

My beliefs; yes, she is safely at home in the arms of Jesus, and has been since the moment she took her last breath; walking, singing and dancing on streets of pure gold. She is not tormented over those who ravaged and killed her body, not angry or sad, nor does she cry.

She crossed the great divide, carried by angels, where there shall be no memory of the former things; all tears, pain and sorry are wiped away and cannot be found in heaven. She cannot see across the great divide, where those suffer who commited their sins, their evil, and never turned or repented, or begged forgiveness.

It is her honor, dignity and a rightful resting place that I wish for her remains on this earth. God told us to bury our dead. THIS she deserves. And justice for those who did this to her to suffer their punishment while still on this earth. God have pity them when they reach the bar of judgement and the books are opened.

PLEASE, don't any of you who believe otherwise come out in hot pursuit of me. I'm not judging you. YOu are entitled to your beliefs just as I am. Anon 1

Listener said...

Thank you Peter for all you've done. Even though I've believed for 2 years that Hailey was dead and buried in Scurry County, I feel sick to see this news. I grew up in Snyder (Scurry County). Even though I left after high school, I still live in Texas and have stayed in touch with many people there. There are so many GOOD people in that area. I'm heartbroken that this young life was in the hands of trashy druggies. Those are the only words that come to mind to describe those people. Please God, let there be enough evidence and 12 people who can convict the people responsible for her death!

Susan said...

I have a comment. As the Mother of a brutally murdered daughter, I read here, I absorb the information. Never a doubt in my mind from the beginning, watching that scum mother was I ever fooled. Not the right response a frightened Mom would give. I was a frightened Mother at the first moment she was missing. This Billie creature reacted like a cold blooded snake from the first moment. This discovery is no surprise. You just cannot hide a human body. Animals do not like the smell. Human remains are repugnant to wild animals. Perfect example of a killer Mother and boyfriend, too stupid to bury the body DEEP. There is never closure. That is a myth. When a child is dead, all joy is gone forever. Proper burial? What a load of crap. When you have rotted brown bones to bury, I don't call it proper. Angels, another load. Peace, Hah, another load of crap. Ms Billy will get her just desserts very soon. Party days are over. This mother cannot even fake a feeling. Pure selfishness, no regard for the child.

Picture captures the grief over the loss of Hailey Dunn

By Jason Goodwin, Assistant News Director, jgoodwin@ktxs.com

By George Levesque, News Director, glevesque@ktxs.com

POSTED: hr UPDATED hr

A single snapshot taken in Colorado City on the day Hailey Dunn's remains were identified, proves a picture really is worth a thousand words.

Seen in this picture are Colorado City Detective Kelsey Rivera, Sergeant John Bivins (who was acting Police Chief in Colorado City when Hailey Dunn vanished) , and Colorado City Middle School Principal Mark Merrell.

This picture was taken shortly after the remains were identified.

They are all crying. I was wrong about local LE. They are mourning too just like us just like Connie Jones. I find it ironic that the news posts this pic and not one of Billie Jean crying. Shows who cared about Hailey the most. Very telling.

The picture is courtesy of Cat Geiger Photography.
