In domestic homicide cases, we often find the subtle blaming of a victim. The perpetrator seeks to blame, in very subtle terms, the victim in order to alleviate the responsibility for what the perpetrator did.
It is not expected that a mother would disparage, in any way, a missing child, as the tendency is to almost deify the child, as the parent can only think of the best of times. When a parent disparages, in any manner, it is a red flag. Can you think of other cases where the missing child was disparaged? Hint: Sometimes, the insult can even be heard in the 911 call.
"Hailey went and disappeared" Billie Dunn said. Hailey did no such thing!
"She caught her attitudes."
"Hailey was 13 when she left."
Hailey didn't "leave"! This is to put the responsibility for her disappearance upon the victim!
The police affidavit said that Adkins called her "promiscuous" and later we heard "boy crazy."
These are unexpected but it is the subtle blaming of the victim for going missing that is not to be missed.
The following has portions of the article to show dating:
Billie Dunn said, "I just wish I could get her, I just wish I knew where she was, I just wish for sure I knew she was there and I could just walk in and grab my daughter and bring her home."
Billie Dunn said she believes her daughter is still alive, "I want her back, I want my daughter home, I want my son to quit hurting, I want her to quit hurting, it horrible to know that your children are suffering and you cant do anything to ease their pain."
Dunn said she is more determined than ever, after 22 months of Hailey missing, "It's devastating , my daughter was thirteen, an innocent baby when she left."
