Hailey Dunn Case: An Inquisitive Grand Jury Part One
Statement Analysis will not convict anyone of anything.
There will be no "Billie Dunn dropped her pronoun right here! Shawn Adkins issued an unreliable denial."
Nor should a conviction rest solely upon such things.
There will be, however, much evidence to present, as well as Statement Analysis, both in conclusion, and used even in trial.
A Grand Jury could be asked,
"Do you believe the mother's account of the sleep over that she gave the nation on the Nancy Grace Show?" along with actual analysis of her answers.
Her answers show not only clear deception, mirroring the polygraph results, but also give additional information.
When Billie Dunn was asked how far Hailey had to go to the sleep over, she said that she had four or five blocks to go, and then went on to attempt to portray herself as a conscientious mother, attempting to post how she put limits and boundaries on Hailey's freedoms. "She wasn't allowed to..."
In referencing Hailey in the past tense, jurors may instinctively wonder, "Why would the mother of a missing child do that?", and intuitively, consider that the mother knew or believed that Hailey was dead. This would, naturally, lead to a question to investigators:
"Did you tell Ms. Dunn anything that would lead her to believe that Hailey was dead?"
As Dunn refused to be silent, the same inquisitive, thinking grand juror may then see the transcripts of the 6 month vigil where Dunn is heard saying something to the affect of 'see ya'll in 6 months' which may then rattle about the brain, especially if the juror is a parent, leading to more questions of the same.
Of course this same juror could ask more questions along the same line, freely asking questions in the hearing of other jurors.
They'll, of course, hear evidence of cell phone pings, results of lengthy interviews, behavioral analysis conclusions from the FBI, statement analysis write ups, and...
whatever Hailey has to say from the grave.
Do not conclude, without scientific evidentiary conclusion, that the remains were there too long to indicate anything.
Next: What else a Grand Jury may hear...and ask.
