Hailey Dunn Case: Where is Texas Justice?
Texans are fond of their freedom, barbecues, and the fact that if you take a life, you forfeit the right to your own.
Texans, along with the nation at large, are also wondering: Where is the justice for Hailey Dunn?
Thus far, prosecutors have not sought arrest warrants against the two known Persons of Interest in the murder of 13 year old Hailey Dunn, Hailey's mother, Billie Jean Dunn, and her former boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, with Billie Dunn having become emboldened over time with insults and taunts towards law enforcement, and with recent 'suspicion' towards Shawn Adkins.
I'm not buying either.
Her taunts and insults are not something that endeared her to anyone. She mocked the polygrapher of who's test she handily flunked, and even went as far as to say that there was a wide cross county conspiracy in law enforcement against Shawn Adkins. Was this a ploy to signal to Adkins that she would remain loyal in silence?
Her loyalty became strained when she learned that there may have been an overture from Adkins' camp (family or attorney) that he would be willing to seek a plea bargain.
She responded on Facebook that her daughter did not have the opportunity for a plea bargain, whatever that meant, but in her responses, indicated a consciousness of guilt regarding sexual homicide.
It was a pretty severe 'oops' moment for her that was not likely lost on the prosecution.
With an abrupt cancellation of appearance by the gentleman who found Hailey's remains on our radio show, we know that this order of silence has an expiration date.
Of course, it can be removed, but it does suggest that a window of time does exist, leaving the public with the expectation of arrest warrants being issued.
Statement Analysis has covered this case from the beginning and has indicated, like the polygraph tests, guilty knowledge and deception on the parts of both Hailey's mother, Billie Dunn, and her boyfriend, Shawn Adkins.
We await arrests so that Texas justice may be served.
next: examining the death penalty in a case of mother daughter killing.
