Merry Christmas to Peter, Heather and admins of this fantastic blog! Also, to the many posters "anonymous" or not, I wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas.
I have been a reader and subscriber only since the Blackburn case, but I have gone through and read many other of the posts on this blog.
I have commented only a few times, as I don't feel as confident or have the intelligence of many of the posters here. I am learning so much! Learning about my speech as well as learning to discern the speech of others. Thank you all!
My wish for you all this Christmas is for happiness and peace. I do hope the New Year will bring resolution to Amanda's murder. My prayer is that Indy LE is putting the pieces together and will find the connection to CD and the 3 that are arrested.
Merry Christmas to All, and to All a goodnight!

Merry Christmas!!! Hobs, that was a blessing to read, thank you!! Blessings to you Peter and family and blessings to this community of truth seekers. I am feeling strangely nostalgic this year. I am not sure if it's a mid life crisis or the loss of love of ones this year, but I have an urgent desire to bestow good will and love beyond Christmas. I will never meet any of you beyond typed words but I am thankful for you. Your wisdom and insight and thirst for knowledge and justice are uplifting to me despite the hard topics discussed here. Thank you

OT Update:

Five Years After Disappearance, Hailey Dunn's Mom Remains "Hopeful"

AUSTIN, TX— Monday will be the five-year anniversary of the disappearance of Hailey Dunn, age 13 at the time, from her home in Colorado City. Her remains were found two years later at Lake J.B. Thomas in Scurry County, but police have not charged anyone with her murder.

I am missing out a lot on having a teenage daughter and getting to do so many things with her,” Hailey's mom, Billie Dunn, said. “I know what I am missing out on, I see it all the time when I am out and about, and that was taken from us.

“I thought it would be quick,” Billie said. “I thought the remains were found, that there would be an arrest and we would get the remains back, and that’s not what happened.”

Billie Dunn said she thought finding her daughter’s remains would bring some closure and that she would finally get the answers she’s been looking for. However, days before the fifth anniversary of Hailey’s disappearance, Dunn said she has more questions and very little answers.

“I know I’ll get closure one day, and I know that there is going to be an arrest,” Dunn said. “I’m more confident in that now then I have been. And I see that happening. I know it could be a couple more months, maybe a little bit longer, but I know it’s going to happen.”

On December 16, the Texas Department of Public Safety released a statewide initiative to help solve Hailey’s murder, hoping to generate new investigative leads.

“The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) and the Texas Ranger Unsolved Crimes Investigation Team are asking for the public’s help in solving the murder of Hailey Dunn, 13, of Colorado City,” the DPS press release said. “As part of a public awareness program launched recently, DPS is featuring one unsolved case each month in an effort to generate new investigative leads and bring added attention to unresolved or “cold cases” across the state.”

Billie said she remains hopeful that someone will come forward, but admitted that they hardest part is not having Hailey home for the holidays.

“Christmas is really hard,” Billie said. “Hailey loved decorating and getting the rest of us in the Christmas spirit. So, Christmas is always really tough for me

Billie’s live-in boyfriend at the time of Hailey’s disappearance, Shawn Adkins, was named a person of interest in the case, however no arrest was ever made. Billie said she has not spoken to Adkins in years, and still believes he is a suspect in her daughter’s murder.

Anyone with information about this unsolved case is urged to contact the Missing Persons Clearinghouse at 1-800-346-3243.

The remains???? Billie Dunn is such an appalling person. The center of her own universe. I hope there's justice for Hailey in 2016.

This is the first Christmas I've had in many years I didn't have to worry about what I'd find in my home or my vehicle, or if my pet(s) be killed. It's nice to not have to worry about missing/dead children for a change. Or wonder about Texans and what they are up to and why they are around.

I don't even have to know what is going to happen before it does. God doesn't make physics for the snitch system of law and order.

I'm just glad my earrings came back.It's sad to have lost a teacher of Christ; sadder yet no one cared.

GeekRad said...

Billie it is time to stop the lies. You know darn well who killed Hailey. Oh she makes me sick.

My wish for everyone is a healthy 2016!

Dylan stated the original title of the poem, "A Visit from St. Nicholas". Merry Christmas to all, and may 2016 bring joy to all.

Here is another completely credible denial (I'm using the sarcasm font).

“The allegation that I would do something like that is complete garbage and is totally made up. It never happened. Never,” Manning said in a statement released by the Broncos. “I really can’t believe somebody would put something like this on the air. Whoever said this is making stuff up.”

Merry Christmas is happening here all week long 'cause ima.grandma is finally back home. It'll take a swat team to make me leave again for awhile and ima.grandpa says he thinks he can take 'em if they try. It's a wonderful life!
