Statement Analysis: Billie Dunn Radio Interview Analyzed




                                                     "Nobody be punished"  Billie Dunn

Yesterday, a woman in the Bronx, New York, was stabbed 40 times by a stranger, and lived to tell about it.  Her husband said, among other things, that the assailant must be found and punished, lest others be attacked as his wife was.

This is the expected reaction:  There is a violent assailant loose and must be caught even for the sake of others.

This is an expected response.  Statement Analysis is confronted by the unexpected.

What's it like to interview a narcissistic sociopathic killer and not be aware of it?

It happens.

 How could someone go an entire show with allegations hanging over her head without once saying "I didn't do it"?

What is it like to hear someone say anything but, "I told the truth" and still pander softball questions?

This is one of the most shocking interviews and will, one day, likely be used in teaching Analytical Interviewing the way the video clips of Scott Peterson are now used in trainings, as this  shows, through careful listening, just how the truth leaks out through the words spoken.

Kaaryn Gough likens words in the brain to marbles. Here is her visual imagery:

The marbles are words in the brain and the deceptive person opens the door to let out some marbles, that is, she must choose her words, yet it is that some marbles, unintended, slip out, as it becomes very challenging to control the flow of marbles.  In analysis, this is called "leakage"; that is, information that 'leaks out' from the subject's own words, that were not intended.

This interview contains the words of the mother of missing 13 year old Hailey Dunn in which leakage is at play.

Statement Analysis is in bold type.  Underlining and coloring, is added for emphasis.  We add red to highlight specific deception, and blue as the SCAN technique's highest level of sensitivity.  Where you see the color blue, know that you are looking at a very sensitive portion of the statement.  If you see the color blue coupled with a second, or even third blue, you are looking at extreme sensitivity.  SCAN calls this a "cluster of blues" in analysis, and the color jumps off the page to the analyst.

It is fascinating to look back, after all that has been revealed through analysis first, and the Police Affidavit secondly, and see where the mother's deceptive answers were picked up, and where they were not.  Some hosts knew, like Nancy Grace, while others, perhaps untrained or less experienced, did not.  For some, it is intuitive, while for others, it takes training, practice and time.  I am of the latter.

The interviewer is (I) and the person being interviewed is the subject (S), for the purposes of analysis.

The principles of analysis are applied in the same manner on all statements.

Analytical Interviewing is an interview based upon the subject's own words.

 The best interview is where the subject speaks 90% of the time, and the Interviewer only speaks 10% or less.  The trained and skillful interviewer will avoid introducing words to the subject.  Thanks to Equinox for the transcription.

HOST: Billie are you there?

BJD: yes,

Host: Help us understand what is true and what is not, okay,  so how about this Billie how about if we just start with the day Hailey went missing. Tell us about that day. Tell us what happened. Walk us through everything that happened that day including when she went missing. And when you found out


In Analytical Interviewing, we conduct the interview in a legally sound, non-persuasive manner.  We begin with open ended questions, do not interrupt the subject, and then highlight the subject's own words with follow up questions.  We seek to avoid, whenever possible, introducing a single word to the subject.  How someone words a question can teach the subject how to lie, or reveal to the subject the information the Interviewer has.  

Because this is a radio program, the Interviewer may have to interrupt the Subject due to time constraints or commercial breaks.  This is something not done in an investigation, even if the subject is rambling incessantly because, as Kaaryn Gough says, "the brain knows" and the words, even in incessant and seemingly off topic rambling, are vital.  

It is best to simply ask, "What happened?" but here the Interviewer is aware that there is information online that is being questioned.  What's most important is to ask the question and then take careful note where the subject begins the answer, and what words are employed. 

Instead of simply asking "What happened?", the Interviewer has given commentary which the Subject now answers.  We will listen to the answer carefully.  We will not what she calls her daughter, "Hailey", or "her" or "my daughter" and we will note the context in which she uses it. 
BJD: okay. Well I have hundreds of times but I'll put it out, I'll say it again umm.. 


Note "hundreds" of times; the subject complains about saying the same thing.  The analyst should now be on alert that the subject might be speaking from memory:  not experiential memory, but memory of what she said previously, especially since she has assigned a number ("hundreds") to the account.  

Note that the subject is not simply telling what happened, but is going to "put it out" and say it again.  

When someone says they are going to "put it out there" or "put it out", it generally means that it is an opinion that some will take, and some will object to.  The subject is doing this instead of giving an account.  Even before beginning her answer, she has alerted the Interviewer that something is not going to be strongly committed to.  

She went missing on Monday. I didn't find out till Tuesday. So Monday when I was at work, Shawn called me at some point in the afternoon. 

Note that the subject begins with
1.  Monday.  Then she moves to 
2.  Tuesday.  Then she moves back to 
3.  Monday. 

Very early in her statement, she is concerned with letting the audience know that she, herself, did not find out until Tuesday.  The pronoun "I" is injected here, about the child going missing.  
She also finds it important to note that she was at a specific location:  work.  

Recall in her first Nancy Grace interview, she said, "She went missing while I was at work" establishing the priority of her alibi.  
"I didn't find out" is in the negative, and is sensitive to her. 
Note "Shawn" is an incomplete social introduction.  This should be viewed in context:

It may be that by using only his first name, "Shawn" that she has an expectation that the interviewer (and audience) knows who he is. 

I guess it must've been around 330 or four because it was after Hailey left the house and before David got home so I asked him what my kids were doing and he said David isn't home yet and Hailey went to her dad's and she's spending the night with Mary Beth. So I said okay. 

We have highlighted a critical point of sensitivity in the account.  The subject feels the need to explain why she "guesses" the time:  she does so measuring it by Hailey's departure.  
Why would this be so very sensitive to the subject?  We have "two blues" very close together:

1.  The time chosen in the story
2.  Hailey leaving the house 

This analysis is not in a vacuum, as this case has been given extensive analysis since Hailey's disappearance.  This is a critical portion of the story the subject presented on the Nancy Grace Show which resembled the case of another young girl who went missing and was murdered.  Carlie Brucia case was at the True Crime Library that Billie Dunn mentioned downloading from, on the Nancy Grace Show. 

In his own research, Statement Analyst Mark McClish concluded that when someone is going to give a deceptive account, and must choose a number between 1 and 9, they most often cling to the number "3"; meaning that, in his work, "3 is the liar's number."  

He had students and law enforcement officials also track this and submit their findings to him, which confirmed his work.  

In my own interviewing experience, I found it also to be true. 

I believe the "guess" of time and Hailey "leaving" is highly sensitive to the subject because while she speaks it, she knows what she is saying is a fabrication and that Hailey's remains were disposed of earlier that morning when Shawn Adkins drove to his job, spoke to no one but allowed himself to be seen, and left after buying a soda.  

If this is true, Billie Jean Dunn would have to know that this is a fabrication in order to show the reason for sensitivity.  If she had believed the account,  she could tell it without sensitivity.  She would not have the need to explain why she did anything, nor even where she was.  It is within these additional words that we have sensitivity due to deception. 

So that night after I got home, David did come in my room, after I was laying down maybe nine or 10 o'clock and he said mom I don't like Hailey over at Mary Beth's her boyfriend's always there. And I said well that's good to know she's probably not going over there anymore. I was little upset Hailey didn't clear it with me anyhow - she had just cleared it with Shawn. 
 So the next day. I thought she'd spent the night with a friend. Around noon I called David, I said go ahead and call Hailey.. Hailey's friend to tell her to tell Hailey to come home now. So David did that, and called me right back not too long later and said "Mom. She said Hailey didn't spend the night there" and I said get over to your Dad's because he lives basically across the street. I said Go over there and see if Hailey spent the night there. And this was already very unlike Hailey, she never done this.


Note "David did come" and not "David came..." this additional word "did" is used to emphasize.  When someone is habitually deceptive, they often feel a need to be 'proud' or emphatic when they do, in fact, say something truthful.  
Note her need to include her body posture, "laying" indicating an increase of tension for the subject. 
Note that she didn't like Hailey not clearing it with her, but didn't call Hailey, nor check on her. 
Note that her son is portrayed in a positive, big brother role, yet Clint reported that instead of searching for his baby sister, he played video games while with his mother.  This suggests that he knew there was no point in searching.  The private investigator said that the bond was extreme between them. 

Note the scripted plan:  She called David to call Hailey, instead of calling Hailey directly.  This is avoidance.  

She wished to portray as concerned with "I was a little upset" and even went as far to persuade audience that David was concerned, yet she did not call, even with "Marybeth's boyfriend" being over there.  There was no call from her daughter, yet still, she does not call Hailey?  This from the woman who called herself a "wonderful" mother? 

Was the interviewer a parent?  Would these 'errors in script' be picked up?  Mother has the wherewithal to call son, whom she was not concerned about, but not daughter, whom she was concerned about; not that night, and not the next morning and not the next afternoon. 

This is deliberate distancing from Hailey.  

Note, "Call Hailey, Hailey's friend" confuses which one to call.  This is where it is difficult to keep track of the details of that which is fabricated.  
This actually gives us even more distance:

1.  She is worried about Hailey that night about a sleepover,  but does not call.
2.  David expresses worry about Hailey, but Mother does not call. 
3.  The next morning, she does not call.
4.  The next afternoon, she does not call.
5.  She tells David to call Marybeth, not Hailey, nor does she call herself. 

This is, degree by degree, distancing herself from Hailey.  She doesn't even want David to call Hailey, but to make the script work, the ruse must go on:  David is to call Marybeth, who will act surprised and say "Hailey's not here; we didn't plan a sleep over" which is then to subtly blame the victim, herself, for deception. 

Billie Jean Dunn is blaming Hailey.  

The victim is disparaged. 

Host: Right So now you're worried

BJD: So.. Right. I'm already panicked. David went over there, called me back said "Mom, Hailey didn't stay the night there". Clint didn't have a phone. I said David take my phone back over to your dad's and let me talk to him. So he did. I got Clint on the phone and I told him I'm coming home. I was at work 20 miles away, I'm coming home. You go ahead and go to the police station and file a missing persons report. Hailey is not where she was supposed to be. And I thought at that time. I asked had Hailey at least stopped by there . And I thought that he told me Naomi said she did. But I wasn't here I was with my friends playing video games.

Host: could you repeat that.

BJD: Clint said that Naomi had told him Hailey did stop by Monday but he wasn't there. He wasn't there. He didn't see her.

Host:  Okay. And Naomi is ?

BJD: Clint's girlfriend

Host: could you please speak up.

BJD: So I get my sister all to come and pick me up from work and to bring me back to Colorado City so I can find my daughter. We got into town. I went by her best friend Heather's house. Nobody was home there. So we went by Heather's grandma's house and didn't get an answer, so I left a note at Heather's house and then I went to the police station and reported her missing. After that for a couple of days, it's pretty hazy.


Here we have the subject's need to tell us why she had to get a ride home from work, making it very sensitive to her.  Note the two blues.  By telling us why she had her sister come, it is a high point of sensitivity and suggests that there was a very different reason for having her sister come.  

Follow the pronouns:
1.  We got into town
2.  I went by Heather's
3.  We went by Heather's grandma's

What caused the change from "we" to "I" to "we"?

Pronouns are instinctive and do not lie.  When pronouns are in error, we are looking at deception by the subject.  This was a phony scripted 'going by', as if casual, rather than an actual panic-mother searching for her missing child.  

The emotions and language do not match. 

The pronouns are inconsistent. 

"I" left note; "I" went to police.  Was her sister no longer with her?  

Host:  Okay, so when you say hazy you mean because it was so stressful and..


When a parent is on high alert, the hormonal rise brings great clarity of mind.  Dr. Ekman points out that not remembering is a low stress way of deception.  Here, the Interviewer just gave her the interpretation:  "so stressful" reminding us not to introduce any new words, whenever possible, so that the subject, herself, can tell us about what "hazy" meant to her. The days following were critical:

She did not search.
She threw a New Year's Eve party. 
David did not search. 
Clint searched but was surprised that Billie Dunn watched television and the 'concerned' big brother (see above) played video games. 

Most high schoolers would have likely not only been searching, but mobilizing the high school students to pass out flyers and search, within police recommendations.  

To sit at home and watch her "favorite" soap opera, and for David to be playing video games, while Clint Dunn went searching, was something to be noted in Behavioral Analysis.  Private investigator Mac Sanford reported the heavy and strong bond between mother and son.  
BJD: I think so. Before I reported her missing. I can remember everything very well . But actually going to the police station and having to report your child missing is too overwhelming and I just don't remember things really well


The subject has now prepared the audience to hear conflicting information and wants it excused.  This is important to the subject.  Yet, even while doing so, she does not want to lie, so she, instead, using the 2nd person, "your child" instead of her own child, which technically, is not a lie, especially since the host has invited a mother on a program who lost her own daughter.  It was a clever move by Billie Dunn to not only seek to excuse her deceptive responses, but to align a true victim with herself: 
Host: your mind can certainly shut down to protect you because you got so much stress. Carrie (Carrie McGonagal, Amber Dubois's mom) do you have anything you'd like to add or ask Billie?

Carrie: Billie there was a time that you called for.. Did you call the Texas Rangers and stuff. I know that you called us. You called..

BJD: oh yeah. I called the Texas Rangers, a week or two into it because I felt not enough was being done. I called them a couple of times and then Clint called FBI and I called FBI before FBI also got involved, also..


Note that she seeks praise for calling another law enforcement agency yet it is sensitive as she feels the need to explain why she called them.  
"not enough" was being done.  She had been accused of lying to police by the local police so she changed gears and tried her luck with the Texas Rangers who found the same as the local police :  she is lying. 

She adds that she called them a couple of times indicating, again, her frustration at not being given immediate call backs.  Law Enforcement suspected her and was not giving her information.  Deceptive people have a desperate need to control information and belief.  (See Scott Peterson)

Host:  Understand that the people that on web sleuths and myself. We are not asking these questions to embarrass you or to make you feel bad, but it helps us know what's going on and it helps to get, I know you told this story 1 million times


What one says in the negative is sensitive.  Here, they are "not" asking questions to embarrass her; yet it is that when she is asked, embarrassment comes.  This shows a recognition that the questions are both embarrassing and going to make her feel "bad"; why not just ask and let truth be the guide?

BJD: There are people with their minds made up. I've put the truth out there over and over again.

This is a similar expression from the one above, by "putting something out there" for people to decide for themselves.  This is what is done with opinions, not with fact.  There is no peace treaty between a false accusation and an innocent person.  This is a perfect time for the subject to issue a reliable denial and not accept any possibility that she had anything to do with Hailey's disappearance.  


She does not take the opportunity. 

Here is where she can tell us what the truth is.  She does not need to "put it out" there; she can simply say the truth.  

She chooses not to.  

Host:  I know that. But when I'm just learning some of this stuff new tonight. I didn't know some of these things that you're telling me this is good. I have an affidavit here. It was about getting a search warrant and it said that you took a polygraph and it said that the first one you had to stop because you were taking narcotics. Were you taking any narcotics the night or the day after that Hailey went missing?


Analytical Interviewing seeks to avoid introducing anything to the subject, instead, focusing on the subject's own words.  Here the interviewer introduces:
a.  affidavit
b.  search warrant
c.  polygraph
d.  narcotics 

This is given in the form of sentences, until the question, "were you taking...?" is asked.  Best to avoid all such. 
BJD: umm.. The same… same night I did. Monday night. I did. I had hydrocodone and  antibiotics for a bad tooth


Here we have the answer in the affirmative (she could have said "yes" and let it be) but the need to explain the reason why, making narcotics ("hydrocodone") sensitive to her. 

Due to the police affidavit, along with analysis from the Nancy Grace Show, we know more about this use of "hydrocodone."

Hydrocodone is Vicodin.  It is a strong pain killer (narcotic).  Billie Dunn's method of deception is interesting to study.  On the Nancy Grace Show, Nancy Grace asked her question after question and embarrassed Dunn, because Dunn kept on being deceptive.  

Here is her method: 

Dunn attempted to say that she picked up a prescription drug that she had been prescribed. 
This is technically true. 

She did pick up a prescription drug, hydrocodone, the generic name for Vicodin.  
She had previously in life been prescribed hydrocodone.  
These two sentences are both true.  It is in withholding information that she shows her deception:

1.  She picked up the hydrocodone, not at a pharmacy, but at a street corner. 
2.  She bought from a drug dealer, not a pharmacist.
3.  She did not have a prescription to buy it as doctors do not write prescriptions to drug dealers.  

She also uses the method of additional words.  

She was taking "hydrocodone and antibiotics."

By throwing in the word "antibiotics" she makes it sound as if a doctor prescribed these two drugs together. 

No. 

She went on a drug buy and emptied her and Shawn Adkins' accounts for the drugs.  

That night, she needed drugs, badly.  Why?

Host:  Okay so I'm thinking that maybe that might be the cause of some haziness to be add that to the stress of that happening


Alcohol blackouts in memory are not recoverable.  Vicodin would not have blurred her memory, but it is the Interviewer who has given the subject the excuse.  This is an example of how instructors say "do not teach the subject how to lie by your words"

BJD: probably so

Host:  I want to talk to about this affidavit that I have I'm sure you've seen it but first I want to talk about something to get cleared up. Carrie and I were talking before the show about something. There's an article in a newspaper called Ccitynews.net and in this article, it claims that Hailey's family has not made it easy for the police department to work with them and to try and find Hailey. According to the article the police department gave you a phone for maintaining contact after your phone was seized it was seized by the police. But then you disconnected the phone. That's not true. Tell me about that.


Analytical Interviewing Goal:  get the subject to speak 90% of the time.  Do not introduce words.  Let the subject guide you.  
"According to the article:
1.  Police gave BJD a phone to call them
2.  BJD disconnected it.  

Then the Interviewer says "that's not true" (assertion) and asks BJD to tell about it: 
BJD: No they didn't give me a phone. 


This is a strong sentence.  They did not give her a phone. 

They did take my phone, turn it off. 

This is also a strong sentence.  They took her phone.  She and Shawn failed polygraphs and were Persons of Interest in the disappearance. This makes sense.  They are going to seize any evidence from those suspected, whenever they can. 

Umm.. Never monitored it. I called it several times. I had family that called it several times.. The voice mailbox is full. It's not been checked. It's turned off. It goes straight to voicemail still. 

"Never monitored it" drops the pronoun.  How would she know what they were doing?  Police did not take her phone to "monitor" it, that is, to wait for the killer to call.  They were looking for evidence. While police had her phone, she called it.  Why?  She had family call it. (she is in charge).  Why? 

They took my phone and I never got a reason why I didn't get the phone back. 

Police do not reveal this type of sensitive information to those they suspect in a crime.   They were looking for, among other things, pornography.  

I really wanted it just because of pictures Hailey had put on there of herself, 

She was concerned about pictures of Hailey, which is why she feels the need to say "why" she "really wanted it" back.  There may have been deletions that she was concerned about being recovered. 

but FDI did come in sometime later because I already had another phone from one of my best friends, she gave me her phone to use. 

Here is why "they" didn't give her a phone:  because she "already" had one.  So if Hailey were to call, she could answer.  This is another example of deception and technical truth telling.  She has a phone:  did she turn it off as alleged?

FBI gave me another phone and I kept That one also. I only use the cell phone my friend gave me. I use that one for everything. I only use the one FBI gave me to talk with primarily the Texas Rangers. When it ran out of minutes, I didn't put more minutes on it.

She didn't disconnect it; she just didn't add minutes to it.  This is technical truth, while being deceptive.  
Note the word "with" between "me" and the "Texas Rangers" putting distance between them. 

Note the desire to denigrate law enforcement on both sides of the interview.  What is the purpose of doing so?

Host:  So if the police needed to contact you. Do they have a way to contact you or are they just playing with words here by saying that they're having trouble contacting you?


The interviewer introduces disparagement of law enforcement with the words "playing with words here";  this is to give information, not to seek it, and highlights the need for training. 

BJD: Oh definitely yes they had my other number as well because I was calling up there several times a day and they would always.. Oh they're busy.. They're in meetings let me take a message. They always took my other number down.


This is Billie Jean Dunn's spin about the lack of information law enforcement would give her as a Person of Interest in the case. 

The police are not sharing information with her:  she has made this clear.  Why doesn't the Interviewer recognize this simple fact and ask questions about it?  
The constant repetition of the theme is indicative of just how sensitive it is to Billie Jean Dunn: she cannot bear being seen as shut out of the flow of information like a common suspect, but that is exactly the case. 

Host:  When was the last time that you called them?


Remember the host said that they were not trying to embarrass her?  (in the negative).  This is an example of why it is sensitive:  

BJD: It has been a long time. Since my arrest.

Host:  Why is that?  Is there a particular reason.?


The host is pitching in a softball for her to knock out of the park, allowing her to give reason or excuse for the lack of contact.  Note the length of the answer as she is not only happy to respond, but see the blue color coding as highly sensitive: 
BJD: I was, I had been cooperating with them and doing things they asked me to do even if I didn't agree. I just did it just because just to let them get over this 'n so they would start looking for Hailey instead of playing who done it. So I was very cooperative up until umm.. I got arrested. And I just decided it's, it's not paying off. And it's not working. Mainly because that night when I was taken to jail,one of the DA detectives pulled me out of the cell several times to accuse me of having some knowledge of where Hailey was or what had happened to her and telling me that she was deceased. Which I can barely even say that. I don't want to think about that. I still feel like the worst thing that I can do is give up hope on my daughter. And I can't, I hate the man. I think he's a snake now. I think he's the devil.


1.  Note the word "with" shows distance.  She "had" been cooperating "with" them.  She was not cooperating.  She was not telling the truth.  She tried to take her polygraph under the influence.  She failed her polygraph.  She lied to them about Shawn Adkins.  So while she wants to say she was cooperating, she cannot use the word "we", which would have showed unity.  This is why we say it is so difficult to 'really' lie outright.  Even while being deceptive, the words show truth. 

2.  Note that she says she feigned cooperation "just because" they would "get over this"; which was to look at who did this to find Hailey.

Guilty people like to say "we need to just look for the missing person" when it is that when we learn "who done it" we can find the missing person.  Mark Redwine has repeated that he wants the focus to turn to finding Dylan, yet we know that by focusing on Redwine, we can find Dylan.  Police knew that by focusing on Billie Dunn and Shawn Adkins, they could find Hailey. 

3.  Note that while her 13 year old daughter is missing, she calls the law enforcement attempt to solve the crime "playing" who done it.  

It is difficult to understand how the Interviewer could have heard these words, and not stopped the interview to ask for an explanation of something so boldly shocking.  This is a willful avoidance of seeking information from the subject. 

4.  Note, again, the sensitivity with "cooperation" found in being "very" cooperative.  There should be no sensitivity, whatsoever, attached to a parent's cooperation when a child is missing. Clint Dunn was not "very" cooperative.  He just did what he could.  We do not even read of him "cooperating" with the investigation.  Why not?

There was no reason to bring up the topic.  

Joe Tacopina said that Deborah Bradley was being "very" cooperative in the search for Baby Lisa.  We noted the word "very" as making cooperation "sensitive" to Bradley, only to learn, shortly afterwards, that she had certain portions of her house off limits to police searching and testing, and that she would not interview without Lisa's father, Jeremy Irwin, present.  This is why cooperation was made sensitive by the word "very"; highlighting even the need to use the word "cooperation" when a child is missing.  

5.  The word "And", when it begins a sentence, indicates missing information. 

6.  She calls the detective who accused her a "snake" and "the devil." It is interesting that he is a snake "now", indicating that there was a time when Billie Dunn thought of him in some other manner.  It should be noted that he was a "man"; and not a "person" or her more often used word, a "guy."  

Here, the detective had taken her out of her cell and accused of her knowing where Hailey was dumped and that she was involved.  

Yet it is here that she reports that he accused her of knowing where Hailey was, and what happened, but she does not bring herself to make a denial. 

Since the case broke, neither Shawn Adkins nor Billie Jean Dunn have once said, "I did not cause Hailey's disappearance" in all their television and radio interviews. 

Statement Analysis Rule:

If a subject is unwilling or unable to say "I didn't do it", we are not permitted to say it for him. 

This is why training in interviewing is vital.  

This shocking answer should have been followed up on with direct questions asking the subject to explain the use of her words.  

She refers to being arrested in the same answer as she used the word "cooperate" in.  Why was she arrested?

She was hiding Shawn Adkins in her home. 

Is the DA's detective now part of the overall conspiracy?  How is it that 'web sleuths' allowed such a grandiose and untenable theory to go unchecked?   

This is why, at times, law enforcement can quickly dismiss such. 



Host: let's talk about your arrest because maybe people don't know about that. Billie you were arrested for according to the police, giving them false information when they were trying to find your boyfriend at the time, Shawn Adkins. Correct?

BJD: it was. It was. No it was lying to a police officer because they asked was Shawn there. I told them no.

The mother of a missing 13 year old had been told that they believed he was involved and she hid him, and had the steady nerve and presence of mind to look at them, while he hid, and lie for him. 


This showed her priority:  Shawn Adkins over Hailey Dunn.  

Note "it was" is passive.  She does not say "I lied to police", but rather uses the passive wording, which seeks to reduce responsibility.  

Question:  What mother of a 'missing' child would lie to police during the investigation about the very man police had told her they initially suspected?

Answer:  an involved mother.  

Host:  Right right . Lying to a police officer right. What happened with those charges?

BJD: There were other charges that were completely dismissed or dropped because they were so bogus. The lying to the police officer, that happened. I did that.


They were "so bogus" but she does not say that they were untrue.  There were drug charges.  She purchased street drugs and put them in old prescription bottles; common for addicts. 
Host: let's back up. Why did you lie?  Why didn't you let them know Shawn was there?



BJD: I'm not even sure. 


Note that she does not say she does not know. 
Note that she does not say that she was not certain. 
Note that she says "I'm not even sure"
"I'm" is in the present tense.  She is asked about what she did in the past.  What did she think at the time she lied? By moving into the present tense, she avoids the question, making the question sensitive to her.  How is it that the Interviewer missed this?
Note also, the additional word, "even" sure; qualifying a weak assertion. 
This means she knows why she did it.  

I just know that Shawn didn't wanna talk to them. 

She knew that Shawn did not want to talk to them.  
Q.  What did "they" want to talk to Shawn about?
A.  About her daughter's disappearance. 

Billie Jean Dunn's "cooperation" is sensitive because:

1.  She lied to police
2.  She attempted to trick the polygraph
3.  She thwarted the investigation in this lie to police, to protect Shawn Adkins. 

Not only did she not cooperate with police, she sought to harm the investigation into her daughter's disappearance.  

Their vehicle pulled up and I said to Shawn. I think they want to talk to you and he said I'm not gonna talk to them. I don't feel like talking to them right now. So at first I told them Shawn wasn't there.

Note the minimization of she only thought they wanted to talk to him.  This shows that she was prepared to lie for him as she knew why they were there. 

When one fails a polygraph, it means the person lied.  The person does not want to tell the truth, nor does she want the truth known. 

Lying to police, either directly, or being caught in the polygraph, is being uncooperative and damning to an investigation. 
Host: so Billie can you see why people might go Well! Here her daughter's missing and she lies for her boyfriend and I see why the police did it. It was a pressure tactic to see if they could get you to talk but I think you can understand how that might look. We are talking about perception here and sometimes perception and what is really the truth can be two totally different things. Can you understand how people can look at that and see that she's protecting her boyfriend. Why would she lie?


Host:  Let me say something. Billie, this is something you have to accept. Billie lied to the police. That's the difference. She lied.

Carrie: But then they returned! What happened when they returned, Billie?


Another softball attempt to make agreement with the subject.  This is feeding information rather than seeking it. 
BJD: Well they didn't return. He just asked if could he come in and look and knowing he was gonna find him and I could've told him no. 


She knew that police knew she was a liar, which is why she added "and look"; she knew he did not come in to talk to her, but to "look."  
Here, she takes credit for not telling him "no"; as if lying to impede the investigation wasn't wrong, but something she needs to be praised for.  This is her method of self-deception. 

I told him yeah come in and look. I don't care. 

"I don't care" is in the negative.  If it was true that she did not care, she would not have had to lie. 

Shawn wasn't supposed to be there, anyhow. 

She blames Shawn.  This is why I have repeatedly said that if one of them is arrested, she will make a deal in order to blame him, and save herself. 

I didn't think I, I think he was waiting for his mom to come and get him. because we were arguing. 

Here she is deceptive again:  "I didn't think" is stopped (self censoring) and changed to "I think" with a stutter on the pronoun, "I" from a non-stutterer. 
Note the need to explain why his mother would come and get him (or why not, if you take it in the negative).
Note the use of the pronoun "we" as unity, cooperation.  

But. So. I don't know I just told them yeah, come in.  and so he came in. 
Please notice that coming into her home is sensitive to her:  it is only because she told him "yeah, come in"; this is something very important to her.  She does not like being out of control, or someone else having control or authority over her.  This is deeply embedded into her personality that I have seen over the past two plus years.  Here is an example of it:  

And  went and got Shawn and talked to him and just set us on the couch. They didn't let me know what was going on and I just didn't understand anything. Another police officer came over and she took me into my bedroom and would not let me go out of my bedroom and wouldn't let Shawn come in my bedroom To check on me. And she held me there until they came and arrested me and asked if he could search my house again. And I said yeah.

1.  He set us down:  someone else having control
2.  The policewoman would not let her out of the bedroom, leaving the police woman with control.
She did not want Shawn Adkins answering questions without her presence.  
3.  They wouldn't let Shawn come into her bedroom, either. 

She mentions it both ways:  she could not go to him, and he could not go to her.  She did not want Adkins interviewed without her.  This is where liars panic:  they need to keep control over the information, and keep track of it.  This is very stressful for her.  The tension is high, even as noted with "set down" body posture.  
4.  "She held me there" until she was arrested.  Was this a physical hold?   Where are the follow up questions?
5.  Now note the need to give permission to search again as being important to her.  It is likely that she gave permission because she knew they'd have a warrant in a few hours. 

Host:  I understand where you're coming from. I do think Carrie and I have talked at length about this and again I don't want you to think that I'm jumping all over you or anything but you know you lied to the police. They can arrest you. It's just black and white there's no. If you hadn't lied to the police – they couldn't have arrested you. There is your perception of reality and I understand what you're saying but let's talk a little bit about Shawn. Okay because a lot of people have a lot of trouble with Shawn. Now He admitted according to this affidavit to threatening you and to threatening Hailey. Correct.?


Here the interviewer challenges that Shawn had threatened violence: 
BJD: According to the affidavit. The affidavit is anything the police want to say to be able to get what they want. He's has never accused Hailey and he never said that he did either. I disagree with many things in that.


Note that the question, "Correct?" is now sensitive to Billie Dunn, as she avoids giving assent (yes) or denying it ("incorrect" or "no") 
Host:  This is why I want to talk to you. Has Shawn ever threatened you or threatened Hailey?

BJD: He has threatened me. He has never threatened Hailey. That's a whole completely different story.


Domestic Violence does not differentiate.  When a woman is threatened, the children are not safe.  It puzzled me when I first heard this, how it was that the hosts allowed her to lecture something so terribly foolish as it being acceptable to threaten a mother, as long as the daughter is not threatened. 

When a woman is a victim of domestic violence and moves the perpetrator into her home, child protective services move to take the children out of the home so that they are not exposed to violence, should the mother refuse to move the assailant out, immediately.  This is called "Failure to Protect."

In Billie Jean Dunn's world, the violence or threat of violence, against her is acceptable for Hailey.  

How was it that this was not challenged?
Host:  What do you mean a different story. Tell me what you mean? 

BJD: That's completely different. You don't threaten my children. That's just way completely different in my eyes and in my mind. If you're mad at me and you want to talk ugly to me that's fine but he's never said anything about my children. He wouldn't have been there. 


Does Dunn know right from wrong?
Answer:  yes.  Here she says "in my eyes and in my mind" recognizing that in others' eyes and minds, it is not "way" "completely" different. 
Note also that this being "different" is qualified by "way" and "completely"; the two words which reveal that Billie Dunn knows that it is not different. 

She was a victim of domestic violence growing up; whether physically against her, or as a child, eye witnessing it. 
Both the one who receives physical abuse, and the one who witnesses it, will suffer repercussions later in life. 
Host:  So you're saying He's never threatened Hailey at all. 


Why would this matter to any mother listening?  How is it that an Interviewer can even ask it this way, as if, somehow, the violence is justified?  Note the word "never" is used, along with "at all."  
BJD: No

Host:  Okay, but he has threatened you. Now some might ask he's threatened you. Therefore he is dangerous and he is in your house with your children. Do you feel that Shawn is dangerous, you had a restraining order placed on him. Correct?


1.  The assertion that he is dangerous. 
2  that the kids are in the house
3.  Then she asks if BJD "feels" he is dangerous?  
4.  Then she asks about the restraining order?

Interviewing should always avoid compound questions. It allows the subject to pick and choose which question to answer.  
BJD: Yes, and that was again more just to try to work with police and I'd basically given up yet I still took out the order like they asked me to. And now when I wanted to have it pulled back. I couldn't

Host:  He did threaten to kill you. Correct?

BJD: Yes 

Host: I thought Shawn had said he threatened Hailey that's not true. You're saying, according to you that didn't happen.


Why would the host seek to minimize this claim?  How does one mark such a difference in danger?  Was this to appease Billie Dunn?  Was it to indict or accuse the police of lying on the affidavit?

Billie Dunn has, on this show, admitted lying for Shawn Adkins.  Why would she be believed now?
BJD: No.

Host:  Okay I can only go by the information that I have and that's what I'm going by and I'm so glad that you called in so that we can get to all of this. Again with Shawn Are you still with Shawn?


People are generally "so glad" when truth is revealed or something is "cleared up"; yet Billie Dunn has continued being deceptive, actually making things more 'cloudy' and confusing. 
BJD: Yes. I have no reason not to be. He stood right beside me and he's been the one constant. He's been there with me, day in and day out comforting me every time I cry every time I'm upset Shawn is the one there. 

Host:  Okay he failed two or three lie detector tests was it 

BJD: He failed one, and so did I and so did my brother. 


This is the example set out for us on how it is that when one feels guilt, one feels that if the guilt is shared, it is lessened.  "Everyone was doing it" says the school child caught.  
"He failed one" is true.  He also failed another, which is also true.  Whether he failed two or three, he still did, in deed, fail "one" as she said. 
Host: That doesn't cause you to go wait a minute he failed. 

BJD: Of course it did. After I failed? 


Please note that Billie Jean Dunn makes herself the reference point for truth and confidence in a polygraph. 
Please note that Billie Dunn just told them she lied to police who wanted to speak to Shawn about her missing daughter. 

Want to learn how to discern or catch a liar?  Watch carefully:  

And then I went home and told my brother and my brother said you know what I did too, they told me not to tell you that. And I knew something was wrong.  When I talked to my lawyer and he says let me guess who did the polygraph. And of course he got it right and he said those people are a joke. He called up a man I forgot his name. He said this guy was basically wrote the book on how to give a polygraph correctly. That man got on the phone. He also knew the names of the guys who gave us the polygraph and he said what a complete joke they were, he also didn't understand why they were still allowed to give polygraphs. 

Follow the language.  

Note "says" is present tense, reducing commitment to this statement. 

A defense lawyer denigrated those who administered the polygraph and did so by using a polygraph expert as his means. 

Really?  is this true?

1.  Who did the polygraph
2.  Those people are a joke

Then, he called "up" someone.  Who?

"a" man.  "I forgot his name" (not, "I forget his name" present tense. 
"this guy", with "this" being close and the word "man" is now a "guy"
"that" man got on the phone.  

The change of language is without justification in context.  
This and That:  When spoken of, there would be distance: "that" but when he was actually on the phone, he would be close up, "this", yet...

Bilie Dunn reverses it.  

The change of language, the verb tense and the use of "this" and "that" conclude:

deception indicated. 

Billie Jean Dunn's response:  'they are all jokes and he doesn't know why they are allowed to give polygraphs' instead of "I told the truth."

She cannot bring herself to say, "The polygraph is wrong because I told the truth."  This is the easiest and most common thing for an innocent person to say, yet a liar, feeling the internal stress of lying, cannot say it.  She can ridicule the test, ridicule and demonize the administrator, but she cannot say "I told the truth. "

We are not permitted to say it for her. 

There were questions like do you, did you do anything to cause Hailey's disappearance. Yes of course, I left her at home that day by herself. They asked Shawn and my brother could Hailey be in Scurry County. Hailey could be anywhere. Just very terrible questions – like a set up 

She blames the questions instead of saying "The polygraph is wrong.  I know it is wrong because I told the truth."  

How is it that the host did not pick up on this?  

Host:  so you felt you were set up to fail. Basically, is what you're saying.


Why would the police want to "set up" someone to fail a polygraph?  The results are not to be used in court unless both stipulate, so what motive would they have to "set her up" in a polygraph?  

How is it that the host did not see the folly of such an assertion?  There is no training for something like this. 

Where is the word "truth" in all of this?
BJD:  Oh yeah. So if they never wanted to look,the easiest thing to do was to pin it on to the boyfriend


The disparagement of the police is now laziness. They "never" wanted to look, so instead of the walking and looking, it would be easier to blame "the" boyfriend (not "my" boyfriend).  Police, she said, accused her in the jail cell.  It was not just "the" boyfriend, but both of them. 
Host: According to the information that we have. It's understandable that they would look at the boyfriend and you that when a child goes missing- they search from the inside out. First they start the people closest to them and then move out. I'm gonna get back to Shawn in just a moment. I have a question.. What is the biggest misconception about you that you would like cleared up?


listen to the words that Billie Dunn frames as acceptable for her speech.  Note what her brain tells her tongue to say: 
BJD: um about me, there's so many about the whole situation.. that I could've ever hurt my daughter. There are people that actually think I did something although I was at work and I'm the one that reported her missing. There are people who think Shawn did something which he did not. There's not a way in the world that he could ever hurt Hailey, or hurt me in that way. That's the biggest misconception. Or the people who think that law enforcement do not lie because that is the way I thought too.


What is the very first thing that Billie Dunn told Nancy Grace about Hailey going missing?
"She went missing while I was at work" establishing her alibi.  It was her priority then and it is now at the interview, which is precisely why it is repeated.  Repetition means sensitivity.  
Host:  According to this affidavit Shawn has said many things to them. I'd like to go over with you. Shawn according to the affidavit – Hailey was promiscuous and kind of said some really awful things about her. Did he say those things?


Yes or no question.  Because Billie Dunn admitted lying to police, why should she fear lying to the host?  This is the perfect opportunity to follow up her answer...watch: 
BJD: No. He said that as I did, that Hailey was boy crazy. She was not having sex. He knows that. She was not promiscuous. So I know that, I know he didn't say that. 


Host: So the police are lying in the affidavit then.

BJD: Yeah they lied a lot of in that I think 


She has accused police of lying.  Yet, the terms are not far apart:  
Police said that Shawn said she was promiscuous.  
She claims that he said she is only "boy crazy."

This is the perfect place to say:

"Billie Jean, you have admitted lying to police and now claim that police have set you up to fail on the polygraph, and are now lying on the affidavit.  If the one who signed the affidavit is caught, his or her job will be lost and may be prosecuted.  Please tell us, Why should we believe you when you say..." (and specify)

She will not be able to say "Because I told the truth."

This is a basic in Analytical Investigation  and it flows from the principle from SCAN (www.lsiscan.com) 

"No one can lie twice"

That is, if someone is lying, they will not say, about the lie, "I told the truth" when asked why he should be believed.  Liars will say many things, some even coming close:
"Because I don't lie" (using the word "lie" along with present tense verb)
"Because I wouldn't lie to you"
"Because I have no reason to lie"
"Because the facts say so..." and on and on,  but the subject who has lied will not look back on his (or her) lie and say, "I told you the truth."

Yet, the honest person will say, "I didn't cause Hailey's disappearance.  I failed the polygraph, but I don't understand because I told the truth.  You should believe me because I told the truth", using the pronoun, "I", the past tense verb, "told" and the word "truth" easily. 

Billie Dunn could have said, in the beginning of the show, "I didn't cause Hailey's disappearance" easily and have no need to explain away a failed polygraph.  "I don't know.  I told the truth."  Instead, she was unable to say these simple words, yet the Interviewer does not appear to grasp this 101 principle of analysis. 

She does not say, "I just want to find Hailey" instead, using words that show the distance between her and the police; 
the distance between her and Hailey;
the distance between her and the truth.  

She cannot say "I told the truth."  
Host:  Basically, this is what the public has to go on. So these are where the misconceptions are happening. Okay, this is why it's good for you to come on and just answer flat out. Now in the affidavit Shawn said that he was fired the day that Hailey went missing but according to his supervisor, that's not true that he just walked out. He got to work at 6 AM according to the supervisor. Shawn was a very good worker. They all liked him. Shawn went to work the day that Hailey went missing at 6 AM went to the break room, got a Dr Pepper, and then left at 610. According to the affidavit cell phone pings do not show him going straight to his mother house like he said. Your comments. Please.


What is the purpose of picking out small lies and inconsistencies?  It would appear the purpose of the interview was not to gain information, but to grant a platform.  Note the number of words from the Interviewer and the number of words from the subject.  If the best interview is 90% subject, and only 10% Interviewer, what do you say of this interview?

Yet, we listen for the wording in the answer, and pay attention to chronology.  We remember in sequence the events that happen which is why story-tellers and liars struggle: 
BJD: He went to his grandma's house. He quit his job. He did not tell me about that because we'd had problems about his job situation in the past. He certainly didn't tell me he was gonna try to get another job before he told me umm.. But he did quit. The thing with the cell phone pings he did not go to my house. He drove through Ccity to get to his mother's, which he would've had to. 


1.  He went to his grandmother's house.
2.  he quit his job.

Note the order.  Going to his grandmother's home is a priority.  
What he did not do is important, as it is reported in the negative, yet, she still feels the need to explain why he did not do something; making this very sensitive to her:

The time between going to his job and thereafter, his sensitive to Billie Dunn.  The cell phone pings may prove crucial in the trial.  
Host:  So again I'm a little confused

BJD: ..and the timeline was, with it also. He had enough time to get from work, stop his grandma', knock, they weren't up and then go to his mom's house.


Here is an indicator that she is not working from experiential memory, but from her "time line" previously worked on.  Not only does she refer to it as a "time line" but she has worked it out so that she can justify the time he spent:  "he had enough time..."

This is why the cell phone pings and communication link them both together. 

This is the time period in which Hailey's remains were disposed of; perhaps in several locations, just like "killing a deer."
Host:  I may have just lost track of what you were saying. He did quit but he didn't want to tell you right. So why did he tell law enforcement that he was fired?


The script got lost.  

When people do not speak from memory, they lose little details.  Now compare this with her complaint that when she lied to police, she was upset enough to say not only that she could not leave her room to talk to Shawn, but he was not allowed to go into her room to "check on" her when she was with the police woman. 
BJD: I don't know. I don't even know that he did.

Host:  So you feel that that is something else that they could be lying about, right? 


The host shows suspicion.  This is actually an opportunity for Dunn and Adkins to clean up their script. 
BJD: Maybe I don't know.


Interesting that she does not want to refute the host, but is still willing to lie for him, to the very officials charged with finding Hailey. 

If you can recall lying in life, you likely recall how scary it was.  Did you lie to a school teacher?  That was even more scary since the school teacher is a figure of authority. 
Can you imagine having the nerve, the steady nerve it takes to lie to a police officer?
Host:  According to Shawn's boss he just walked out like he didn't quit or anything is that we told you he did?

BJD:  umm.. I can't remember exactly if he told somebody or he just walked out. I don't know.


Note "exactly" means that she can remember, but remembering is sensitive to her. 
Host:  Let me tell you why that's important. Normally it would mean nothing but it was the day Hailey went missing so these type of details you know can clog up an investigation and just make it stop unless you can find out exactly what happened and if somebody isn't telling the truth then it messes everything up.


Would the mother of a missing 13 year old really need to be told on a radio show why it is important?
Host: The FBI does not need to obtain search warrants…

BJD: carrie the FBI did tell me, probably two or three weeks ago that they had not much if anything at all to do with Colorado city law enforcement. They've never agreed with certain things, so it wasn't exactly them. It wasn't FBI that had anything to do with it.


The additional word "did" instead of "The FBI told me..." indicates the fact that the FBI agents were not telling her things, so when she finally got something from one of them, she has the need to highlight it.  

Carrie: why doesn't local law-enforcement use FBI for what they're there for. Where they don't have to give an affidavit. Hey we need a search warrants. There were 50 of them served on Amber's case that nobody knew anything about because with the FBI. They don't have to prove anything. I forget what it's called and they get all the information they need, phone records and everything else they don't have to follow all the same rules that law enforcement have to follow.

BJD: probably because they didn't agree on everything. Colorado city wasn't trying to cooperate with FBI. I know that other towns came in, chief of police, I'm not supposed to know about this so I won't say who, offered their help, also, and Colorado city, early in the beginning said no we have it under control. They've turned down help from Equisearch. You guys. I was able to call you and ask you to come in. You could just do that. You didn't need law enforcement approval. Thank God or they would've told you no. They did tell Klass kids though, But they came anyway. Equisearch needed law enforcement's approval which we could not get so they were never able to come in.


Here she disparages CC police "wasn't trying to cooperate..."
Note "they've turned down help from Equisearch" and not "they turned down..."  This is something that could have easily been verified with a simple call to Equisearch.  Tim Miller does not work with anyone lying, or not cooperating with police, as is the case here. 
Law enforcement does not have the authority to tell 'you guys no' to speaking. 

Texas Equisearch chose not to, especially after the Cindy Anthony disaster.  Equisearch is not going to spend the funding to bring in resources where there is indication that the suspects know precisely where the remains may be found, unless law enforcement requests them to.  But to tell Tim Miller that the police have rigged the polygraph and are playing games and are too lazy to search is not something that is going to bring action. 
Carrie: and that is what everyone doesn't understand they ask why doesn't Texas Equisearch come in. Most most agencies like us don't come in unless we work with law enforcement

Host: The last thing they want to do is have the search party come in without the backing of law enforcement. It's impossible. It would just make everything so much worse. We are talking with Billie Dunn, the mother of missing teenager Hailey Dunn and we have Amber Dubois' mother Carrie on as well. We have lots of questions coming in. I'm kind of hopping all over the place here I just want to make sure that were clear on this. Billie you said you have talked to the FBI recently. When was that?

BJD: maybe three weeks ago.

Host: and what did you talk with them about?

BJD: I called to clear things up. Rumors I had heard. That's why I called and then we talked a little bit about the case. Cleared up some rumors from <interrupted>

Host: What did they say were they responsive

BJD: I wanted to know why, I wanted to know why they were following a psychics tips going out to the airport digging around what was the deal with that. What was it really that led them out there. The FBI really doesn't have much of a clue what Colorado city's doing and that's basically what they told me. I told them I I needed somebody that I could talk to and they said exactly I did and They just wanted to make it very clear that umm.. It's not them who rake this over the coals and I know that.


Note "digging around" and 
"the deal" while speaking about her daughter's remains.  
Note "the FBI 'really' doesn't have 'much' of a clue...." as if she knows what FBI agents know and what they do not know. 
Billie Jean Dunn and the FBI do not speak; they "told" one another; that is, one-way information.  They do not share information with her, and she does not have her "own" FBI "guy."

She "told" them she needed someone to "talk to" and they said "exactly" but not that she could talk to them. 

Law enforcement agencies are not in the business of sharing details of a murder with those they believe are involved. 
Host: Okay, okay, got it.

BJD: I also wanted to kind of find out what was the deal with Hailey and Mexico which I was told Naomi completely lied about that. They never thought she was in Mexico Naomi said that they found her in Mexico but couldn't just run in and get her. But I knew that was a lie, but I wanted to ask more about that, Anyway.


She does not say that she wanted to find out if Hailey was in Mexico, only that she "kind of find out" what was "the deal";
indications of language that show she does not have concern that Hailey was in Mexico.  

She wants the audience to believe that her husband's girlfriend said that Hailey was found but that they just didn't have the time or resources to pick her up.  She "knew" that was a lie.  Did she think this would make her seem like a lie detector?
Host: So Naomi is your ex husband and Hailey's father's girl friend. And you heard that she claimed that Hailey had been found in Mexico and you wanted to call and make sure  if that wasn't or was true right

BJD: right

Host: Okay okay Were kind of just going through slowly but surely so that we can get all of this cleared up. Hang tight for just a minute, I want to get back to the affidavit. Okay according to the affidavits while Shawn was being interviewed. He showed them his phone that had information on it. They gave it back to him. They asked to see it again before he handed it to them, He deleted the information they wanted to see. According to the affidavit. Have you heard about that at all?

BJD: yeah and that's completely ridiculous. They said show me where you called Billie so he pulled it up and showed it to em,and then I guess a couple minutes later,he said you know what show me that again. Shawn looked for it and couldn't find it, but all it was, was a phone call made to the hospital.


Note:  she does not say it was not true, only "completely" "ridiculous"
How does she know that this is a lie?
Since she was just confronted with Shawn's changing work story, how is it that this is not only ridiculous, but "completely" ridiculous.
Host: Okay, got it. What about this video on YouTube? Didn't you find that disturbing?

BJD: umm.. I think I just think they're crazy young immature boys trying to get a rise out of people who did it.

Host: It certainly did get a rise out of people. But Billie do you see as we go through everything why people and I'm not trying to pile on here. I'm just trying to get you to see the perception out here. He threatened to kill you. People said he's threatened Hailey and Hailey was afraid of him. You said, no he's not. You lie to prevent the police from seeing him – you were arrested. He claims that he was fired and his boss says no he just walked out. Supposedly cell phone pings didn't have him where he was. Then we add…

BJD: <interrupting> yeah, they did. The cell phone pings.. No the cell phone pings had him going to his mom's house, 

Host: Okay, so you're saying the cell phone the perception of the cell phone pings having him somewhere differently. That is not correct according to you.

BJD: no, it did not put him, they did not put him somewhere that he wasn't supposed to be, they showed him exactly where he was.

Host: Got it got it. Understood. Let's talk about what was found on the computer I was reading what was found. And honestly, if someone looked at my computer, I'd be mortified the stuff that's on there. Just because of what I do with web sleuths. I have a bunch of serial killer stuff, true crime stuff, morbid things all of that. A lot of people do, but apparently there was something on here that law enforcement really felt there was very disturbing pornography on the computer. I have been told or we have been told what are your comments on that?

BJD: I've been told the same thing. And I just don't know if I believe it. But even if it was it's not Shawn's computer. There were so many people that had access to it. But no, I don't see him ,his mom, his little brother, his stepfather looking at anything like that. His stepbrothers I don't know them at all, I just.. I don't even know if I believe that anything was on there.


She allows for child pornography, but seeks to blame others. 

Host: Okay So you don't think that there was any child porn on there?

BJD:I know there wasn't child porn on there somebody would be arrested, and if there was child porn on there, It's a damn shame nobody was arrested.


She can "know" because no one was arrested. 

Host: I agree. If there was child porn on there somebody should've been arrested because that's ridiculous. 


She joins in BJD's ridicule.  We learned that it was in several counties and several people who had access, making prosecution difficult.  Is this "ridiculous"?

BJD: exactly

Host:<inviting questions from the chatroom but chatroom monitor claimed there were no questions being asked that Billie had not yet answered.>

Host: Billie, here's the reality of tonight's interview so far the police have lied about everything they've lied about everything in the affidavit, again the perception, and even though Shawn has threatened to kill you and you have a restraining order against him: . He's a great guy.

BJD: yeah

Host:Do you see now how people just looking in would go..

BJD: no, I did in the beginning, now. I don't understand it at all. In the beginning yeah.


It is a large conspiracy involving local police, state police and federal police against her and Shawn.

Host: What do you mean in the beginning? I'm confused

BJD: when Before people knew anything, before people only had to go on what the police was putting out there but now so much more has come out and it's pointing to many other areas… It's

Host: Let's talk about that. That's great. Let's get away from Shawn let's talk about what is the evidence out there pointing in other directions. The floor is yours. Billie, this is good

BJD: the simple fact is nothing happened to Hailey inside my house. For a fact Somebody took her out of the house or snatched her off the Street. Cadaver dogs have been in my house, not just Linda's also law enforcement they been in and around my house. My car's been looked at. Nothing happened to Hailey inside that house umm.. I can't get over the fact that a sex offender who has more rapes and kidnaps than I have teeth in my mouth is not being looked at, Because he's a good guy. He's lived near within 20 miles of three missing teenagers. That's a hell of a coincidence but he's not being looked at cuz he's a good guy.

1.  "Nothing happened to Hailey inside my house."  We need to explore "nothing."

2.  "Somebody took her out of the house or..."  Now, we have an "either/or" allowance and that the "Somebody" may have taken her out of the house. 

Please note that "nothing" happened inside "my house" but
Somebody took her out of "the" house.  We have the change from "my" to "the"

Now the third:

3.  "Nothing happened to Hailey inside "that" house"

"My house" to "the house" to "that house" shows consistent distancing language. 
The first had possessive pronoun; the second only used the article, "the" but the third employed the distancing language of "that" house. 

Nancy Grace said that, "Sadly", Hailey Dunn didn't make it out of the house alive.  

To this, I agree, and the language progression confirms. 
Host: Backup what you mean not being looked at because he's a good guy. How do you come to that conclusion who told you that?

BJD: the Colorado city police said that this man is a good guy. A hard-working…

Carrie: actually, it was the sheriff and the DA investigator who said to me only got them all wrong. He's a good guy and you said would you have him watch your kids and they said well absolutely not. But he's a good guy.

Host: But what was his offense what put them on the sex offender list.

BJD: many rapes

Carrie: there's multiple offenses.

BJD: There's also at least one kidnapping but there's, I mean, multiple rapes since he was about 17. AndI guess he's I don't know now nearing 50.

<Host: and Carrie - Discussion of a sex offender in Colorado city out of Klackamas, Oregon, who was also living in the region of Hailey's disappearance. He's now in Texas.>


Host: Billie tell us more about things that are out there  that point to other people


This is an offer to Billie Dunn to build an alibi for Shawn Adkins.  Billie Dunn does not miss the opportunity as it is the first thing she goes towards:  Shawn.  

BJD: well those are the main things the fact that Shawn didn't have much time to do much of anything and umm..  really, I don't see how we could hold it in all by himself to himself, for this long and be living this close with her family. 


PLease note the attempt to clear Shawn by the use of time.  I believe that Hailey was already dead and the only thing he did that morning was dispose of her, building an alibi by simply going to work and walking out 10 minutes later. 
Note the pronouns:

She allows that he didn't have "much" time; that is, he had some. 
She allows for "we" to hold it all in "by himself" is the change of pronoun we find indicating deception. 

Pronouns are instinctive and do not lie. 

The main things are the sex offenders that bother me the because from day one  
Note the "main things" (plural) yet she did not start with sex offenders:  she began with:

1.  Shawn having enough time
2.  She and Shawn having the ability to keep it to themselves

As an innocent mother of a missing child, would you defend yourself with the notion of being strong enough to hold it all together?

Her brain knows what he did, and what she did, and what they planned, yet even in deception, her brain allows for these things.  She may be actually boasting here. 

They asked how I felt about it. And I said I live on I 20 that really bothers me and the chief of police said, "you know that just doesn't happen here." And I just looked at him like he was joking . I said "you got to be kidding me. Yeah it happens everywhere." And unfortunately it's gonna happen again. There was also. It's been a while maybe five or six months ago umm.. A guy had been out raping women in C city. I think he lives in Lorraine they arrested him. They let them out. I'm sure that the girl said he threatened to kill me had a knife to me and I got away. I bet you they didn't question him once about Hailey. I bet you they didn't.

Host: Let me ask you something. There's been a couple of things pop up in chat. Maybe you can clear this up there something about earrings… question about the earings that were found at Clint's tell me about that

BJD: Hailey had put in some red hoop earrings. They are the kind that you do body piercings with. They're bigger than a regular earing. So she put those in to stretch her earlobes. I told her keep them in otherwise they'll go right back to small so she put them in. They Had been in for a few days so when I reported her missing wearing those red hoop earrings. And After Clint moved out of his apartment or when he was moving out, packing up. David was over there helping him. He found Hailey's red earing on the floor and brought it home to me. And I called the police. So one of the earrings was found. 

Host: So does that mean that she was at Clint's what does that mean ?

BJD: I think.. I think she went by there even if she wasn't there for long. I think she went by there. They were in there. Maybe she took them off Sunday night. She did spend the night there. 

Host: You can't tell when they were there. That's the thing, so.. Somebody's asking me about an Xbox video is that anything but I don't know what that means. Do you know what that means?

BJD: yeah, Hailey's Yep, Hailey was playing her brothers Xbox I guess that was Sunday night, was playing on the X box. It takes pictures of you just randomly I guess I heard. I was told that in that video it looks like she's wearing the red hoop earrings

Host: So that night it looks like she's wearing the earrings that were found at Clint's house

BJD: right only one of them was found. I never got to see the video. I was told by Billie Sykes Hailey look so happy jumping around. Would you like to see that. Hould like see those pictures. I said I would love to see those pictures and he said I'll get them to you. I've never seen them. 

<Another few minutes if discussion of registered sex offender was in Oregon committed crimes in Oregon and was in the area of the bombs this. At times she went missing and was currently in Colorado city around the time Hailey Dunn is missing. Police will notextradite him to Clackamas County>

BJD: I bet they say he's a good guy too. It would be just like them.

Host: Okay. Is there anyone else that you can think of that LE is not looking at?

BJD: Oh yeah! There's some names that I don't want to say but we had chief Dewley. He was fired from, I think Taylor county because he had his girlfriend naked, chained up in the closet. 

Host: what? 

BJD: oh yeah! And that's a fact! Talk about weirdos. There, There's this, there's this, umm.. They've, people on the police force who had homosexual relationships with my neighbor and my neighbor not getting along with me. And My neighbor being a pedophile dating my son's friend's sister. She was actually living there with him playing basketball with MY daughter, which I never approved of. I mean. And he's weird, anyways, having girls and guys spend the night with him at the same time. in my opinion. and other people telling me this guy is a window peeper. I've always been leery of him also. That guy was also at work a couple of days before Hailey went missing talking about killing himself and acting strange. And he's never been looked at either. He is like I said in sexual relationships with some of the city workers in Colorado city. Some have actually been fired because they were actually caught in public, having sex.

Host: Wow That sounds like Colorado city is one crazy wild place.

BJD: <Shouting> There's proof.. No! The police officers that can't make it in other towns they go to Colorado city!

Host: That's scary. 

BJD: we've never had officers longer than a year, I mean they're in and out 

Host: Let's talk about Hailey because with all of this stuff going on Hailey, and this can happen in every missing child case where there's a lot of media, the child themselves kind of get lost in it all. Billie Dunn tell us about your daughter, Hailey.


BJD: Hailey is the most beautiful girl in the world. She's very smart, very loud and outgoing umm.. Funny. She's got a great sense of humor umm.. Likes all different kinds of music. She's very fun to be around, she's also stubborn and hardheaded but but always fun to be around, she's very much. She's so much like me. She's very strong-willed and a great sense of humor. 

Host: was Clint involved in her life a lot were they close?

BJD: yes they were they were particularly close, After Clint and I separated. I think Hailey was 10 years old. Clint took it pretty hard and Hailey needed to be there for her dad and she did and she was there with him a lot she started going spending the night with hima lot. She was around him a lot, she was scared of what he might do to himself and they got a lot closer after he moved out. She had always been pretty much a mama's girl until then and then she just she got really close to her Dad.

Host: What do you mean by what he would do to himself

BJD: I don't really like getting into this, he was very depressed. 

Host: She was just worried about her dad is what you are saying.

BJD: yeah yeah 

Host: Do you think in your opinion that Clint or anyone in his family, perhaps knows something that they aren't telling? what do you feel about that?

BJD: I don't feel like Clint does. I definitely feel like Naomi's mother has lied so many times and what for? She's.. She has told so many lies you she can't get anything straight and I don't understand why. I know that I know Hailey and Naomi were very jealous of each other umm.. I know that Clint doesn't know where Hailey is 

Host: Are you implying that maybe in your opinion Naomi might have more information?

BJD: umm.. I'm, I am not, I'm just not real sure about Naomi. I think I wouldn't be surprised if her mom did, but there, I'm not,  I don't know. There's just so many open ends to this.

Host: Naomi is Clint's girlfriend. Clint is Hailey's dad and Connie is Naomi's mother. No, Patricia, Patricia is Naomi's mother. Who is Connie? 

BJD: Clint's mom

Host: That is Hailey's grandmother. Why would she lie? Now. She did say that Hailey was very afraid of Shawn did she not? 

BJD: She did say that. Connie has never liked Shawn. Clint and Shawn fought. But if Hailey was scared of Shawn, She would have definitely told me and she would've definitely told her dad and her uncle. Most definitely.

Host:  you don't think there's a possibility that she'd maybe she didn't because she was too scared. She just didn't know what would happen or you don't think thats a possibility?

BJD: that's just not Hailey.No

Carrie: I talked to Clint a lot and asked him whether he thought Shawn was a threat to Hailey and he said no he didn't think that was an issue or anything else that Hailey would have told him things. If, but, you know, if it's going this long family split up. There was this time when I quit talking with my mother and I couldn't stand my mother because it hurt so much when you don't have answers that you just are grasping at straws but Clint said "I don't think Billie or Shawn had anything to do with that, I can't bring myself to think that." But I'm sure in time it's changed. Naomi and Clint both said had lie detectors and they passed them but I don't think that.. I don't know, that Patricia, Naomi's mother, ever took one and she doesn't.. She does lie and that things that come out all over the place are a lot of her lies.

Host: are you talking about Clint's mom or Naomi's mom. 

BJD: Naomi's 

Host: I still don't understand why Connie, Clint's mother would lie about that. It's Because you're saying that she didn't like Shawn?

BJD: she doesn't like Shawn and also I know she wants somebody to blame -which we all do. But She has said Billie's a great mother Billie and Shawn never did anything, and then she went to oh Shawn did something and Billie knows it and then back to Billie and Shawn didn't do anything. The police need to look elsewhere and then back to they did something or we know something. So she's not made up her mind yet.

Carrie: that's what happens. I think this happens with every case when you're grasping for some kind of answer. You look at everything. I know at one point my own mother thought that I had something to do with Amber's disappearance. My own mother. It's what happens when you're so desperate for answer and to you grasp at anything you can people go back and forth. And it's such that everybody wants to find Hailey so bad that you're mind plays tricks on you after a while. You don't know where to look at so you go back and forth. You know I've gone back and forth that Billie knows something, you know. One day. I'm like okay she doesn't. No, she does, and Billie will tell you I've called her up. "Do you know anything?", And we go back and forth because everyone wants an answer and no one we don't know anything. It's like Ambers case we just don't know what happened to Hailey Dunn 

Host: and the frustration just bubbles over and the.. 

Carrie:and your mind just plays tricks on you . 

Host: Billie lets go back to the affidavit. Billie you stated that pretty much everything in there is a lie. This is an affidavit they used to get a search warrant to search the car. In the affidavit they talk about David, witnessing Shawn come in that day come home that day with like this deer in headlights look after he broke in. Was that it? I'm confused. What about that?


With "pretty much everything a lie", why not seek out the motive of police, who will lose their jobs and their freedom if caught lying on a sworn affidavit?  What about asking:  how is it that law enforcement came upon this information?  Did this come from a vacuum?  Was it a lie or an exaggeration?  
BJD: David, when David came home and knocked Shawn didn't let him in. Shawn said he was in the bedroom watching TV. So David says he knocked and Shawn didn't answer. There's plexiglass in the door and it was broken so David stuck his arm in there and unlocked the door and went in and Shawn came out into the hallway and looked startled. I guess just because David walked in and he wasn't expecting anybody. 


Note:  Shawn "didn't let him in"; this indicates will.  
In her answer, she affirms the affidavit, yet gives the reason why Shawn "looked surprised."  What part of this is a lie?
Host: So that in the affidavit is true. That did happen?


BJD: yes


Since "pretty much everything" is a lie, why not challenge what about this story is a lie?  What is the police motive?  This is a good time for follow up questions.  
Host: About what time was that do you remember?

BJD: five o'clock 

Host: They took the sheets from your bedroom, right


To avoid information, the Interviewer could have asked what police took from the home, instead of introducing "sheets" and "bedroom."
BJD: no

Host: I thought they took the sheets. They took Hailey sheets. 


This is more information being given.  BJD may know all of these things, but it is her perspective on these things, that an experienced interviewer seeks. 
BJD: Her bottom sheet only

Host: Did you hear anything. Did they find anything? 


Compound question. 
BJD: They didn't

Host: There's two stories about where Shawn was, When David came home I've heard that he was watching TV like you said in the bedroom. But then I've also read that he was in the bathroom but you were saying he was in the bedroom. Correct?

BJD: yes 

Host: the big question a lot of people ask this question Billie and I don't want you to think I'm being mean I'm not trying to be mean but I think it's it is a fair question. What have you done lately to find Hailey?

BJD: lately I just wanna talk to FBI. 


The subject avoids the question of what she has done lately, but answers what she wants to do.  She wants to talk to the FBI, indicating that she has not.  The FBI was not giving her information because they suspect her.  

The accusation was that she was not searching, which came from Clint.  Clint said she was home watching her favorite soap opera, sitting on the couch, calm, with David not mobilizing help, either.  This angered the public.  

The subject avoided the answer of what she was doing lately but the Interviewer allowed the question to go unanswered.  

Billie Jean Dunn changed the topic to the FBI and the Interviewer went for it. 
Host: Why is that?


The Interviewer allowed BJD to control the interview. 
BJD: And you know what I've done probably the most for Hailey, I've got her on TV. Me and my friends made the first flyers and passed them out, I reported her missing. I got KlaasKids in. I got team Amber and Laura recovery center and human trafficking 911. We got Hope for Hailey started. Its endless and I'm not the only one. Many people I've done many things for Hailey that aren't getting credit for


narcissistic response.  

Note "probably" weakens the assertion.  This is a sore spot for Dunn. 

 Note the emphasis upon herself and note the order:

1.  done the most
2.  Got her on TV
3. Me and my friends made flyers
4.  I reported her missing

Reporting her missing is listed fourth.  Why would this be considered something to be note worthy to her?
5.  Klaas kids
6.  "I" got Team Amber 
7.  Change to "We" got Hope for Hailey 
Host: Let's list them I would love to hear them. Can you do that for us right now

BJD: Courtney Deteris (sp?) has gone above and beyond being a great friend starting the website for Hailey, having a website where kids can report straight to the police station the police didn't like that idea at first. She's done so much she paid for the website. When I offered to she did it. Holly Jenkins has been looking for Hailey since day one and has spent thousands upon thousands of dollars on gas looking looking for my daughter. She has waded in nasty creek water up to her waist 30° weather. There so many people.

Host: Why did you move people want to know why did you move?

BJD: this was planned many years ago. Clint even knows this. That I would moving as soon as David graduated I was getting out of there and returning to South Texas 


A signal of a habitual liar is the constant need for affirmation or "proof."  Because she lies so often, when she says something truthful, she calls upon some form of "proof";  it is indicative of habitual lying.  Here she calls upon Clint.  She does not say "Clint knew about it" (past tense) but instead gives emphasis (something a liar needs) with "Clint even knows..."
Host: How is David?  how is he doing?

BJD: he's doing. He seems to be doing. He's very well considering the situation. 


Uncharacteristically short answer.  This should have caught the attention of the Interviewer and caused follow up questions.  
Host: it is probably very stressful. Billie. I know you've been very good and staying on this long with us were gonna wrap it up here shortly. What would you say to the kidnappers because there could be somebody listening tonight and who could listen to the show later if they come on and listen to the pre-recorded show after it done. They could be listening. They could've taken Hailey what would you like to say to them?


Note the Interviewer's need to praise the subject causing an emotional entanglement that can interfere with questioning.  This is why training is so important.  It is easy to get caught up with empathy and lose objectivity in an interview, even over a short period of time.  Training in Analytical Interviewing is intense, with principles, video taping, mock interviews, and more principles.  It is intense. 
BJD: That is my daughter. I chose to have her for me. I wanted a daughter. I had a daughter. God gave her to me. She's mine. She's not.. She wasn't born to be somebody's plaything or whatever. She was born to be my daughter. I want my daughter back more than anything I want her back. If I have to have her back then nobody be punished so be it. I just want her back. I can't live without my daughter. 


This is another indication of the sociopathic narcissism similar to recognizing that God "chose" her to have Hailey.   Note the pronoun "I" as extreme.  
Was this form of narcissism not noted?  This, coupled with the admission of lying, the use of drugs, the acceptance of domestic violence, the heartlessness of pornography...was it not recognized during the interview?  Did this answer not shock?

Note the language likely gives insight to Hailey's last night:

"somebody's plaything"  is a sexual reference.  This is what Hailey's grandmother believed happened and what many agree to:  Billie Dunn found Shawn Adkins using Hailey, sexually as "a plaything" (Billie Dunn's word) 
Note the acceptance that "nobody be punished" is something that is transparent.  No call for justice?
No fear for other children out there?  This is a strong indication, from a narcissist, that she is involved and wants no punishment for herself and Shawn Adkins.  

                              This is where the brain 'leaks' out the truth.  

The mouth speaks trying to keep in the information but it flows. 
Host: What would you like us to do web sleuths, Web sleuths members, what would you like us to do to help find Hailey

BJD: not forget my daughter and not give up hope on her. She can come home and we can make her better through therapy whatever she needs. She can come home and be okay 


"forget" before "hope"; "hope" denies the death.  
The word "can" is repeated three times here, making it sensitive.  "She can come home" is repeated, making the ability to come home a sensitive topic.  It is sensitive because Hailey can't come home if she is dead.  
Note that Hailey needs to be made "better"; this, even under the guise of "therapy" is another subtle disparagement of the victim.  Hailey has been blamed by the mother for not calling, for going without permission, for being "boy crazy", having "hormones" and later BJD said that they should be arguing because Hailey would have wanted to buy "everything" and BJD would have to buy her a "new car."
Host: There's a name that keeps popping up here and I'm not familiar with it. Forgive me if it's not appropriate - Brian Glasco who is that?

BJD: that is Clint's half brother, who threatened mine and Hailey's lives and Clint brought that up to the police in the beginning and I don't think the police have ever contacted him. That's why his name comes up

Note disparagement of law enforcement.  Since she and the hosts agree that a 3 agency conspiracy exists against Billie and Shawn, why would the police bother to talk to Brian Glasco?




Analytical Interviewing has the subject doing most of the talking.  Note that is not what is happening: 


Host: Billie I want you to know that web sleuths members, We won't forget Hailey we never have. We have a very active forum that's active every day about Hailey and if there are any searches organized you can let us know and we will be there to help her,help you search for Hailey, I think I speak for a lot of people when I say that this has helped clear up some misconceptions people are still bothered by the fact that Shawn threatened to kill you. That will always bother people because it sounds abusive and I'm worried personally that maybe you're.. Ie threatened to kill you and that worries me. That when you say he's a great guy that scares me to be honest, so I want you to know that that were here for you if you want to talk again we would be happy to. Carrie, what would you like to say?

pandering to a killer?  Is there no discernment?  The entire interview has gone without even denying the accusations against her.  


Note that the host says that Shawn threatening to kill Billie Dunn only "sounds" threatening.  BJD, herself, took it more seriously than the host, by calling police.  When police confronted Adkins, he admitted threatening her, and added that he threatened Hailey and Clint Dunn as well. 
Host: This is been very informative and helpful to me personally. Billie one thing you can do is be seen and heard more often.

note "personally" ; this should have nothing "personal"; it is about gathering information. 
<snip> 

BJD:. I do know I do know there are so many people who do want to help and there's so many people who have their minds made up and there said that they don't care what kind of evidence is produced. They're not gonna change their minds and I just don't want to put me and Shawn right in the spotlight again. I want it on Hailey. I want it on Hailey we have all tried very hard to get Hailey in the spotlight


Like Scott Peterson and others who sought to control the spotlight, the subject expresses her desire to get out of the spotlight of suspicion, in the name of the child.  This is a good example of leakage of information.  By telling us that there are those who are "not" going to change their minds, in the negative, the subject is telling us why she gave this interview.  
Host: The best way to get Hailey in the spotlight is to get you in the spotlight. The most dangerous place to be in the world was between Mark Klass and a TV camera because he was always there. The only way Polly could be heard was through Mark's voice. You've got to be Hailey's voice and so..

BJD: right. And when I did that daily what did everybody say, that I just want to be on TV looking cute, you can't win.

Host: You got to ignore those people

BJD: yes I want my daughter remembered. I want everybody to be looking for her. I want everybody to know all about Hailey everywhere 

Memorialized. 

Note that she wants "everybody" to be doing what BJD herself did not do:  look for her.  Note that she wants everyone looking for her, but she does not say she wants Hailey found.  

Host: Ignore the trolls that say that. To hell with them forget about them. You be Hailey's voice and let us help you 


An interviewer should remain as neutral as possible in order to gain information.  Even when interviewing child killers, child molesters and those who cause repugnancy, the professional must not show either favor nor disdain, and must seek to avoid introducing words, teach the subject how to lie, or reveal information, even that which the public might be thinking.  The Interviewer does not want to influence the answers of the subject in any way.  The Interviewer does not offer advice, but could have taken the "trolls" and challenged the subject to answer for herself.  Yet it is that the subject was unable to bring herself to say the simple words of denial, nor affirm that she spoke the truth.  The subject literally leaked out that she wants no punishment for those responsible, and chose sexual language in her 'speech' to the guilty party.  None of these things appear to be caught by the interviewer.  

"web sleuths" has to do with "sleuthing", yet condemnation for those who see the narcissistic sociopathic killer.   "Sleuthing" is the ability to listen, follow facts and clues, for the purpose of truth.  This interview may be the richest one given, since the first appearance on Nancy Grace, yet none of the linguistic clues appear to be even recognized.  This is an example of how not to conduct an interview and is useful for Analytical Interviewing instruction, just as the subject's own words are useful in teaching deception detection and leakage.  

The "trolls" who can go to "hell" are those who recognize deception when they hear it and have given their opinion.  
Here is a host speaking for an entire online group.  Does this condemnation include those members who believe:
the polygraph results;
the police
the affidavit
and see drugs, violence, perversity and lies?

BJD: right. I feel the same. I am

Is this another change in her stories? Shawn at first got home at 3pm, Hailey immediately left. Now it's 330-4pm. Then later in the interview it's 5pm when David gets home.
Whatever happened to Hailey happened between Sunday night and Monday when David got home. David has a strong bond with Billie, played video games instead of being worried about Hailey. Is it because he knows what happened to Hailey? Is that bond strong out of fear that his own mother could harm his sister so she culd also harm him?

Listening to the Crime wire last night,i loved the analogy kaaryn used with the marbles.

The Host and Carrie certainly did a lousy job of this interview with BJD. They talk like they believe every word she says, especially the Host, they excuse her and respond like they are totally sympathetic with her. Pathetic.

If one didn't already realize how deeply involved BJD is in Hailey's disappearance, one might tend to fall for BJD's pitiful lying stories, or at least start to question yourself with 'could I have been wrong about BJD?'

CarlaP said...

This section stood out to me...

"They took my phone and I never got a reason why I didn't get the phone back."

Police do not reveal this type of sensitive information to those they suspect in a crime. They were looking for, among other things, pornography.

"I really wanted it just because of pictures Hailey had put on there of herself"


This statement reads to me that there were also pictures of Hailey that she didn't "put on there herself" i.e. that she didn't have ownership or control over; pornographic ones made by Billie and Shawn. I know investigators have found something like 100,000 child porn images on their computer, have they found any that involved Hailey?

The seemingly unconcerned attitude and behavior of her brother, could it be a coping mechanism? Is it possible in this case in order to rationalize and cope with the abuse that was going on, the brother vilified Hailey, that somehow the she "deserved" it in an effort to distance himself from her, therefore keeping himself out of the line of fire? People who grew up in abusive homes often minimize the damage done or the parent's role and blame themselves, for example: Dad wasn't a bad parent, we were disrespectful and rebellious so he had no choice but to beat us, I don't blame Mom, she was scared of Dad too, so that's why she didn't intervene and looked the other way when he beat us kids. Older brothers are usually protective of younger sisters, it seems so strange Hailey's brother didn't flood social media with "Help find my sister" postings or go out and search.


Peter Hyatt said...

Yes, well said, Carla.

She may want to make it sound a certain way, but the words themselves, tell us the truth.

Peter Hyatt said...

John,

the analogy is solid.

Today she added to it and spoke of green and blue marbles, with the subject struggling to keep track of which colors came out and which colors belong where...

Peter I think it is sad that the host made web sleuths look like idiots without brains who can't sleuth a monster sitting in front of them!

it is sad, dont you think?

Anonymous said...

Does that host still represent WEB SLEUTHS?

How could they take themselfs seriously after that?

Did law enforcement make fun of them after that whole mess?

Its like interviewing Jerry Sandusky and inviting him to play with the children while no one is home not having the ability to see the monster he is, even though he is telling them what a devious monster and danger to children he is.

Why won't they listen?

Peter Hyatt said...

I don't know if Web Sleuths all feel the way about Billie Dunn that the radio host does. Perhaps those who are members can chime in on this.

It is a stretch to think that an entire group could not only not see the lies, but also align themselves with the folly of law enforcement conspiracy nonsense.

I am betting it is not so.

Remember in this case, there is not a single crime analyst that I can find, anywhere, that thinks that Billie and Shawn are innocent.

Most all cases have people divided, even if for some pretty strange reasons, but not here.

Can anyone name a single commentator, crime analyst, profiler, or anyone who holds to the police conspiracy or that BJD and SA are innocent?

I have not found any in the 2+ years that I have followed the case.

My take on the interviewers is that they were being nice to Billy and in turn Billy just runs here mouth and we did not miss a word she said. She tries to place blame on Naomi and Mom with no real conviction and I love how they implore us to get out and look for thier child while they sit at home and do nothing. The brothers lack of motivation has always bothered me. This was so worth the time to read and reread. I think, hope and pray Haylee has been found and we can all have a small bit of closre. Think Casey Anthony and the lack of closre we have to this day. I still think of Kaylee often. Haleigh Cummins, Kyron, baby Lisa, Zahra and too many others that I cannot bear to think about.

john said...

Peter,

Is it possible for you to do a poll on BJD and SA,which one of them will crack first or give the other one up,or something of that ilk..

Thanks..

Are you highlighting this interview to demonstrate how not to conduct an interview Or to analyze BJD words to help find Hailey?

i know i'm just chopped liver, but i was right that casey anthony would not be found guilty. i do believe my thoughts on this case hold some merit.

Jo said...

Billie shows she does not believe Hailey is at Mary Beth's house when she says "call Hailey, Hailey's friend" She knows David will be calling the friend and not speaking to Hailey.

I said go ahead and call Hailey.. Hailey's friend to tell her to tell Hailey to come home now.

Wouldn't you call and ask for Hailey? Why ask the friend to tell her to come home?

So that night after I got home, David did come in my room, after I was laying down maybe nine or 10 o'clock and he said mom I don't like Hailey over at Mary Beth's her boyfriend's always there. And I said well that's good to know she's probably not going over there anymore.

How did David know that Mary Beth's boyfriend was always over there but Billie did not?

Also, when she leaves work, she doesn't call Mary Beth or go to Mary Beth's house, the place Hailey was supposed to be. Instead she goes to another friends house. Why didn't she check in with Mary Beth first to see if plans had changed or if there was ever plans for a sleepover?

I like the comparison to marbles and I think it is safe to say "Billie definitely lost her marbles".

SKEoD said...

I guess it must've been around 330 or four because it was after Hailey left the house and before David got home so I asked him what my kids were doing and he said David isn't home yet and Hailey went to her dad's and she's spending the night with Mary Beth. So I said okay.

a critical point of sensitivity in the account........ WHY WAS IT SENSITIVE?

1. The time chosen in the story
2. Hailey leaving the house

"3 is the liar's number."

because while she speaks it, she knows what she is saying is a fabrication.... I AGREE

-----------------
the first time frame offered was shortly after one o'clock, not three. ( before LE seen any cell phone ping timestamps, there is a pink flyer and witness postings on internet, that verify this)

it became a "guess" to Billie (even though she was sure), when LE told her that Shawn's phone was pinging Big Spring until 2:40 making one o'clock impossible for the rest of his claim when and where Hailey left.

It must be maddening to know that there are people working nonstop every day to put you away for the rest of your life, however long that may be, sooner rather than later.

Maddening. Every phone call. Every knock on the door. Wondering if this is the day.

You know. They know. Soon, everyone will know.

You dread it, but not completely. Your delight will turn to dismay, when you realize the consequences are not what you thought. Living with the consequences is one thing. Dying with them is altogether different.

Tick tock, Shawn. Tick tock.

Didn't Billie originally say Shawn picked her up from work that day?

And this lady doing the interview is NOT listening. How many questions did Billie ramble on about nothing only to have the interviewer act like she now got that cleared up. Not one thing was cleared up in this interview. Yet she didn't ask her to even clarify just moved on.

And so Billie admits she's STILL with Shawn. Disturbing.

And wtf. 100,000 plus images of child porn is NOT happening by visitor using your computer. That takes an excessive amount of time and let's not forget mot of them were SAVED on a flash drive hidden behind their (Billie and Shawn's) dresser. Why does no one ask her about this. A visitor did not hide their own flash drive in their home. So it's Shawn's, hers our "theirs". Period.

And Mary Beth's mother said that Hailey never spent the night there before, I would like to know how well they knew each other and did David really know them, know the boyfriend etc?

And really Billie, all these other people are weird, but you and Shawn.. Child porn, beastility, horror films is what?!?!?

This interviewer got no answers, no clarification yet even at one point says ok got it"

kind of anonymous said...

Its been proven time and time again on facebook that there are 2 ways to get Billie to talk. One is to make her mad, and the other is to kiss up to her. Obviously the host was using the later method. Billie talked a lot in this interview and provided you (Peter) with an abundance of material. I believe, when you interviewed her, she called you a dumb ass and hung up. So, maybe this host was smarter than you think. As for Websleuths, I can only think of one person who comments on that site that believes Billie is innocent or maybe she just likes to argue for argument's sake.

Jo said...

Agree Lemon, not a matter of IF, just a matter of WHEN!
Who is watching me? Are my phone calls being recorded? Is that co-worker asking me questions because they are interested or because they were sent to get information? I would think you would start to question everything and everyone.

Shelley said...

I found original statements to clarify.. Shown picked getup the night before.

But I noted a couple if major changes.

12-2112 BD said after David said Hailey was not at Mary Beth's "I Called Clint... Then after talking to him says "I left to work and went to The police station to file amusing person report"

This article she saysedge had her son take HER phone to talk to clint, told him she was far away so for him to go file a missing person report (why go im, CALL 911 this is urgent) and then says "her sister picked her up, they drove to town to look, went to Haileys friends grandmas house (not Mary beths, or her friends house but her friends grandmas house first) then To the police to file a missing person report.

First off, this part of the story should not change. Adding more details fine, but now it's changed quite a bit.

And I would like to know if Clint and her BOTH filed missing person reports.

And.. I wish they would ask why she didnt call 911 instead of drive to report. Clearly no sense of urgency.

BostonLady said...

Interesting. Billie left off some information in her "retelling" of "the story". In her own words, via her own timeline, via her own press conference, Billie said that David knocked on the door because it was locked. She then added, the window was broken BY Hailey with a basketball, and so David reached thru and opened the door. (the original statement from David was that he crawled in thru a window, not reached). Once inside, Shawn and David met up and said "Hey" and then went to their rooms. No remarks about the deer in the headlights, Shawn being surprised.

But if you read David's and Shawn's recollection of what happened, they both remarked on being surprised by each other. So why does Billie minimize?

More importantly, why did Shawn have the door locked?? Billie mentioned on the police 911 call that Shawn knows they don't lock the doors or windows. What was Shawn doing in there????? Clean up from that morning?

There is more I'd like to comment on but it will have to be later. Off to the races :)

BostonLady said...

Shelly, actually that has changed from the first time Billie told that story. She said to Clint to call the police and let them know she was coming to file the missing report. Clint never called.

So this is yet another change.

INTERROGATING AN INTERROGATOR.

Interrogation of Stephanie Lazarus, former LAPD Detective convicted of murder on a cold case nearly 23 years after the crime. This is an excellent video which shows that trying to suppress the truth, distort facts or to actively lie during an interview is very difficult, even for someone with training and experience in interviewing and interrogation techniques. As I say in my training classes, when there is a conflict between what is in the memory of an individual and what they are saying about that incident or event, there will be indicators within their language. Not only are there indicators in her language, but watch her body language, her facial expressions and micro expressions, her shoulder shrugs and see how they tie into one another.

I just read through the whole interview. Now, while I agree Billie Dunn is deceptive--I don't get the sense she was involved in Hailey's killing. Adkins obviously has red flags all over him--the most damning evidence: he just happens to quit work on the same morning of Hailey's disappearance. I am also disturbed by what Billie says about Hailey's father's relationship with her. She was close to Mom but then after divorce, she became particularly close with the Dad who was very depressed. At age 10, SHE is expected to give emotional support to Clint and started spending overnights with him. This is neither normal or good.
Adkins is obssessed with horror movies. Clint is self-taught in karate. Both of these interests could potentially be channeled into harming another person physically.
I don't know enough about these cast of characters, but there seem to be red flags everywhere.

So Billie Jean called David and asked him to call and/or text Hailey and/or Hailey's friend and tell her to come home - how did Billie Jean she expect David to do that if he didn't have a phone and had to use her phone?

If David was using Billie Jean's cell phone her phone, how could he talk to/text Hailey and tell her to come home since Hailey would be lacking a cell phone?

Did it not occur to Billie Jean that within just a few hours Shawn told her he had have seen Hailey and talked with Hailey that afternoon yet David claimed there was no sign of Hailey since the night before?

i believe you are correct in thinking that the Host was playing "friendly" with Billie in order to get Billie to talk. you are on the right track, but take it a step further..... how many of the questions and answers had been planned beforehand and agreed upon? i believe Billie knew what questions were going to be asked before the show was held. she had time to get her answers together. but that also put her answers in the past and she also knew what rumor or facebook talk the question was intended to be given an answer to quash. some answers quashed more than one unasked question/rumor that was out there.("put it out" was the language of the Host that Billie picked up so that listeners would be aware of the intent). it is my understanding that the Host and her assistants all had many conversations and discussions with Billie beforehand "in the making" of the show. that can be seen apparent in the Host's demeanor. jmo.

Does anyone have access to Billies facebook page? I want to see if she makes any comments to determine if she is with or NOT with Shawn since she seems to keep changing her story.

Cause to me, I was pretty shocked she said in this interview that she was "still with shawn" despite even telling Peter in his interview a while back with her that they were not together because of some things shes learned from LE.

Peter Hyatt said...

PS:

that the questions were discussed beforehand is evident in the language. Not a big deal and it does not impact the analysis to the point of changing anything. She uses reflective language.

Bottom line:

Shawn and Billie are linked and cannot separate. Ever. If they do, one will turn on the other.

It was the taped police talk with Jodis mother. Her mom was suspicious of Jodi and asked her "were you in Arizona"

Jodi replied "no and I have the gas receipts to prove it".

This to me goes back in line with pre-mediditated. She was even then thinking about those gas receipts as proof she was "not in Arizona.

This is a case to me so blatant I wish Juan would focus on the facts.

i understand how to get the truth from reflective statements, i am claiming that the answers were written by the same person who wrote the questions and that is why they "reflect". Billie is terrible with the teleprompter as you can plainly tell on the Nancy Grace shows. on the show where the CCity cops were talked about, Billie spoke freely, the change in her way of speaking is telling me that the rest of the show was scripted. jmo.

Both Anonymous and Ske are taking the statement out of context. When Billie states "it was with the timeline" she is saying that the times provided by Shawn going to his grandmother's / mother's matches the Ping timeline.

Gee Ske, I thought you would see that with your obsessive ping fascination.

There was no script for this interview. The questions asked were typical of the questions asked of Billie every time she was interviewed.

Billie didn't repeat all of the same lies because she can't remember from interview to interview , what she said in detail. Only in context which is why her answers are more vague as time goes on. Otherwise when she tries to embellish, she gets herself caught in her own web of lies.

I'm a little confused about the Vicodin making her "hazy"... I've been prescribed Vicodin twice before (and, relative to this scenario, once was for severe tooth pain) and it never made me "hazy" or impaired my memory/ability to make decisions. I've known a few other people who have taken Vicodin and they've had other reactions to it, mostly severe nausea. But I've never actually known anyone to get HIGH off a necessary prescription before.
So I guess what confuses me the most is... just how much Vicodin did Billie take that night to get so "hazy?" When Deborah Bradley claimed to have been drinking, people immediately asked, "how much?"

Peter Hyatt said...

Vicodin did not make her hazy.

The host gave her that excuse.

A missing child will increase adrenaline/blood flow to the brain, high alert, etc. to a mother desperate to find her child. It is instinctive.

Anonymous said...

Country Girl: I wasn't too happy either to realize at age 40 that I was already in middle age, and I hate to be the one to deflate your ego; but yes, 35 is middle aged. Actually, so is 33. 33 X 2 = 66, and that, according to our own US Govm't SS Admn, puts you one year past retirement age of 65 and you are considered to be elderly at that age. 33 is in the middle of 66 and that is why it is considered middle aged. 35 in the middle of middle age = 70, at which point you are past ederly and are supposedly in your golden years.

Someone else posted on another article that the US Census gives middle age ranges that go as high as 45 - 54. Maybe so, but technically that is not so in most cases. That would mean at 45 your middle age would give your longevity age at 90, 54 would mean your life expectancy is 108, when both of these ages are the exception and not the norm.

But I wouldn't worry too much about it. Col Sanders of the KFC fame was bankrupt at age 65, (elderly), had been raising chickens and selling his fried chicken to travelers from a little run-down overhang along side the road, when he started his first KFC from one tiny bldg. From there, we know the rest of the story. He lived another lifetime in his golden years, into his 90's. So there's hope for all of us even if we are already in our middle age and beyond.

Anonymous said...

Anon @ 9:48 p.m., I do not believe Hailey's death was premeditated. If it had been, Billie & Shawn would have had their ducks in a row and would have done a better job at planning, getting rid of Hailey's personal items, their illegal video filth in Billie's home and in Shawn's possessing, and in concealing her disappearance.

For instance, claiming she ran away; how stupid when all of her personal items that she would have taken with her were left behind. And that's just one example of their carelessness had they premeditated her death. Another: Claiming she could have been snatched off the street on her way to Clints' or to Mary Beth's. Again, very stupid; she took nothing with her, not her toothbrush, no nightie, her hairbrush, not even wearing a coat on a chilly day/night when she left for an overnighter? No way.

I don't think of it in terms of accidental either; I think that at the last minute, in their dope frenzy of rape and brutality, they didn't care if she died or not, was enjoying the violence they inflicted upon her, watched her die; or at some point decided she HAD to die to keep her from telling what they had done to her.

THEN, took measures to try and cover it up. They had all night and the next day to clean up their mess, do the laundry and dispose of evidence; (that is, if they hadn't already killed Hailey earlier on the day of the 26th), and the next day to dispose of her and some of the evidence (that is, if David actually did come home that afternoon); up until the time Billie reported Hailey missing.

All handled very stupidly even for an accident since they had no plans on how to explain that all of Hailey's personal items were still in the home. Had they used good sense they would have disposed of those items too. But, they are stupid stupid people, caught up in their own evil brain dead stupidity and their belief that they are smarter than everyone else.

Yes, evil stupidity, since there are people who are stupid and can't help it, but are not 'evil' in their stupidity. These two are evil and think they can get away with anything (especially Billie)and be damned with those who would question her evil actions. Billie still believes she can get away with her part in killing Hailey. As unbelievable as it may be, she still could get away with it.
