Hailey Dunn's mother, Billie Jean Dunn, and her former boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, were both named "Persons of Interest" by police, but no arrests have been affected to date. Both mother and boyfriend failed polygraphs, were involved in drugs, pornography (including child pornography and bestiality) and violence.
Dunn, in her many appearances on national television, has been indicated for deception and showed that she knew what happened to Hailey, that Hailey was deceased, and that when remains were located, knew they were Hailey's.
"3 years ago today someone took my baby, whatever happened there's been no remorse,because to this day nobody has stepped forward to try to make this right for her. You not only ended Hailey's life, you ruined many others. Many people love her. I won't sit by & let her case go unsolved. All of our Hope for Hailey family will keep Hailey's name alive, Law enforcement will not stop until every piece fits & you are punished. Hailey, my world stopped, for a while I didn't know up from down,didn't know what to do,where to turn. So I let myself drown in sorrow. I opened my eyes, I saw your brother's face & I'm here to fight for you & him. I'm here to be your voice. I realized, I don't have to let you go, you will always be my daughter, you will always be with me. You come from me, you are part of me. I love you from the deepest depths of my soul, the aching that my heart feels will stop when I hold you again. Until then I will stay here & fight for you & watch after your brother."
Here is the same statement with emphasis added, with Statement Analysis in bold type.
"3 years ago today someone took my baby,
The statement begins with the time frame, as this was the 3 year anniversary, not of her death, but of the police report.
Please note that with regard to being taken, Hailey is "my baby."
Note that"someone" is singular.
whatever happened there's been no remorse,
There has been no "remorse", in that, no expression of regret or being remorseful. It is interesting to wonder how the subject knows that there has been on remorse:
this day nobody has stepped forward to try to make this right for her.
Now note that there is no remorse because no one has "stepped forward"; indicating that without a "stepping forward" nobody feels negative emotions. No one has been caught.
Notice that the subject uses the phrase "stepped forward" rather than "confession."
Stepping forward is a much weaker phrase than "confession" or "admission."
One might wonder why such a soft phrase is used. Mothers (close family members) of murder victims are angry and demand justice. "Step forward" is not to "confess" nor be tried for the murder.
It is also interesting to note that the subject does not seek a confession for herself, the mother of the victim, but for the victim herself, who cannot be impacted by justice.
It is expected that the parent of a murdered child would want justice for herself, since she would be the one sentenced to a lifetime of pain.
Objection: The subject may believe that the victim cannot find rest or peace until a conviction.
Answer: We will seek to learn if the subject, within the statement, portrays the victim in a state of unrest, needing someone to "step forward".
You not only ended Hailey's life, you ruined many others.
Please notice that the context of softness continues. The "someone" (not the killer, nor the murderer, but only the "someone") only "ended" Hailey's life. She does not use harsher language, including "stolen" or "murdered" but only "ended."
And while the "someone" (soft) only "ended" (soft) Hailey's life, the someone only "ruined" (not destroyed, or other harsh language) "my life", no, she uses "many" others.
This is a far step from personalization that we would expect from a mother. A mother's life is destroyed by the loss of a daughter's life, and the anger of not having the murder brought to justice would only heighten this anger.
The soft, passive sounding language is not the expected from an innocent mother. For those readers who are familiar with this case, you know that it is actually consistent with the mother's statements over the years, consistently attempting to protect herself and put her self first.
Many people love her.
Not to say "I love her!" but only"many people" love her. This is also most unexpected from the mother of a murdered child.
Statement Analysis deals with the unexpected.
I won't sit by & let her case go unsolved.
Here is a point of tension. She uses a phrase that employs body posture, often indicative of strain. It is interesting to note that when Hailey was first reported "missing", the mother refused to turn off her favorite television show and join the father in searching. The father also reported that her brother sat and played video games instead of joining the search, or getting involved in searching. When the mother was challenged about not searching she said she would not "search ugly fields"; incidentally, where Hailey was found. Billie Jean Dunn was most roundly criticized, even by her initial supporters, for her inactivity, as well as her lying and hiding of her boyfriend, Shawn Adkins. She "sat by" and did nothing. It is interesting that she would use the same phrase here, three years later.
Note that "let her case go unsolved" is also passive language. She reports this in the negative, and with passive language. Passivity in language is often used to conceal responsibility.
Note that the soft language continues with "go unsolved." This is not to say "I will find justice for Hailey's killer!" or the death penalty, or life in prison, or anything expected from an angry, innocent mother. Instead, she only says, in the negative, that she won't sit by and let the case go "unsolved."
The case, in the eyes of the public, is not "unsolved." It is unadjudicated, but not unsolved. The killers, in the eyes of the public, are known, and the body recovered. The only thing that is not complete is justice.
All of our Hope for Hailey family will keep Hailey's name alive,
She does not say "I will keep Hailey's name alive" nor does she even say that the organization "Hope for Hailey" will, but instead uses the emphasis "all of our Hope for Hailey", which is, perhaps, indicative of some dissension within the organization.
Many people initially supported the mother, including Marc Klass, TV personality, until the mother was caught in a myriad of lies, and did not cooperate with police. A small remnant of women continue to support her cause, but her need to emphasize that "all" of them indicates strain.
Law enforcement will not stop until every piece fits & you are punished.
"Law enforcement" and not specific "police" "will not stop"; please note that law enforcement was a particular point of sensitivity for Dunn as they refused to speak to her and she continually was deceptive in her appearances in which she attempted to portray herself as cooperative and "in the loop" of knowledge. They did not reveal information to her as frequently claimed, as she has been a suspect in the murder.
Note: "you are punished" is used here.
Hailey, my world stopped, for a while I didn't know up from down, didn't know what to do,where to turn.
Here the subject turns her attention directly to the murder victim. We seek to learn the status of Hailey, in the subject's mind.
Note that her "world stopped"
It should be noted that several days after the murder, Billie Jean Dunn hosted a New Year's Eve party in her home, replete with alcohol, rather than be searching for Hailey. (Note that Hailey was reported "missing" from a copied story of another child who had been kidnapped while going to a sleep over. Dunn found this case online and used it as her own story line to cover the murder).
Note that she reports in the negative not knowing "up from down", nor "what to do", nor "where to turn."
The father attempted to get her to help him retrace Hailey's steps because he had believed her cover story. She refused, as she was watching her favorite soap opera on TV. She did not "turn" in the direction in which she claimed Hailey walked. She did not join searchers.
So I let myself drown in sorrow.
Many pictures have emerged of her partying and celebrating. This began on December 31, when she hosted her party, and continued throughout. Even showing up at events, she had to be coaxed into appearing appropriately like an upset mother. Instead she bickered over expensive cars and sought donations and fame.
I opened my eyes, I saw your brother's face & I'm here to fight for you & him.
It is interesting to note that she "opened" her eyes, and upon doing so, she saw her son's face, whom she lists as Hailey's brother. Now she is "here" to "fight" for Hailey and for David.
The opening of eyes is an interesting expression. In order to open her eyes, please note the following:
She had her eyes closed previously.
What caused her to close her eyes to Hailey's plight?
This leaves us open to many questions:
Why, when opening her eyes, did she not see Hailey's face?
Why did she see David's face, instead?
Why does David need fighting?
I'm here to be your voice.
Note present tense language. Three years ago, she was criticized for not being Hailey's voice when she instead chose to protect and lie for her boyfriend, instead.
I realized, I don't have to let you go, you will always be my daughter, you will always be with me.
We have learned that Hailey needs to be fought for, and now she affirms that she will "always be my daughter" indicating that there was a time when the subject did not consider Hailey to be her daughter. This is something that came via realization. What events have caused her to come to this realization?
You come from me, you are part of me.
Note the present tense. She spoke of Hailey in the past tense while Hailey was missing, but now dead, speaks in the present tense, 3 years after her death.
Note that in previous analysis, narcissism was noted in many of her phrases, with the focus and attention firmly upon her. Here, she repeats what she has said before, about Hailey being special because she "came from me" and she is a "part of me", being Billie Dunn, herself. This is consistent with prior statements.
I love you from the deepest depths of my soul, the aching that my heart feels will stop when I hold you again.
Note the love from the "deepest depths" but the aching from the "heart."
Until then I will stay here & fight for you & watch after your brother."
This is not a statement from an innocent mother of a murder victim, but is consistent with the previous analysis done here.
