Hailey Dunn Drug Letter Responded To

Had this been true, there would have been no reason to lie, fail polygraphs, and not cooperate. 

It is a deliberate diversion designed specifically to take attention off the two Persons of Interest in the criminal investigation into the disappearance of 13 year old Hailey Dunn.

COLORADO CITY — Mitchell County Sheriff Patrick Toombs said Monday that the investigation into the disappearance of teenager Hailey Dunn includes information in a letter sent by a female inmate in an Odessa corrections facility to her sister in Abilene.

Toombs said law enforcement has had possession of the letter "not quite two months" and has been checking out its validity. However, "no body has been found, no bones have been found," he said.
Toombs verified the contents of the letter that described a teenage girl being taken in Colorado City as part of a drug-related situation. The letter said the girl was moved to Odessa, where she died of an accidental overdose of drugs to keep her sedated, and her body buried in West Texas, Toombs said of the letter's content.

The girl is not named in the letter.

He said his office, Colorado City police, the FBI, the 32nd Judicial District attorney's office and Texas Rangers have pored over the letter and interviewed those who might be familiar with its contents.
"So far, nothing has come out of it," Toombs said, adding, "If there had been a big break," information would have been released to the public.

"There hasn't been something we felt very good about" to release news, he said. "Nothing viable to make for a public release.

"We're not going to say no to anything. They've looked at it but there has been no big break. No truth has come out of (the letter)" to substantiate a solid lead to the whereabouts of Dunn, dead or alive, he said.

Dunn was reported missing Dec. 28, 2010, by her mother, Billie Jean Dunn, who now lives in Austin. Her live-in boyfriend at the time, Shawn Adkins, claims to have seen Hailey headed Dec. 27 to her father's house, with plans to spend the night with a friend. Neither Clint Dunn, Hailey's father, nor her friend's family reported seeing Hailey that day.
The case has made national news and outside organizations have lent their expertise and support to finding the middle school student and cheerleader, who was in seventh grade at the time of her disappearance. She would be a Colorado High School freshman this school year.

Volunteer searches, billboards and the arrival of a psychic produced no new leads. Most recently, private investigator Mac Sanford of Houston offered his services at no cost.
Toombs said he hoped some clue, wherever it came from, would help turn the case.
"The bottom line is getting this case solved," he said.

Anything said in the negative is sensitive,is that relevant in this statement Peter ?

There was a similiar article where BD also claims the letter is false:

Billie: "we're still believing that she was alive."

Why does BJ Dunn feel like she has to play with peoples emotions? It's terrible. She's a horrible person and knows what happened to her daughter, and was involved. She is a liar and an attention seeking psycho.

On Blog Talk there is a new talk show named "Hailey Dunn Personal Notes and Friends". Use the BTR search box and type in "Dunn". There are 5 shows. The show I listened too (which Billie was a guest on!) the host sounded drunk. Anyhooo...something to listen to if you are really interested to hear what backers of Billie are saying.

Bonnie Blue:

Billie: "we're still believing that she was alive."

Isn't she something!? It's like she CANT keep her mouth shut, no matter how many times her words betray her guilt and stupidity!

I've said it before & I'll say it again...KEEP TALKING BILLIE, yourself right into a jail cell!

Billie Jean is very unhappy with KTab. She feels she was blindsided with the letter. This is coming from yet another news report. But Billie seems to forget what she has said on Facebook. For a week after the interview she was telling everyone that Hailey was going to be found. She could feel it. They had new leads. She was on the blog talk crazy radio saying the same thing. Billie was flirting on facebook and changing her pictures during the same week. *** Remember this interview was done a week prior to being released so Billie did not know what was going to be aired ***

But look at what she states in this article:

Upon hearing about the letter, Billie Jean Dunn, who lives in Austin, went straight to FBI investigators, whom she said have conducted interviews with nine or 10 people in connection to the letter.

“The FBI in Abilene said there was no credibility in the letter,” she said, adding that this restored her hope that her daughter would be found alive. “They assured me they went over this with a fine tooth comb.”


If Billie went straight to the FBI upon hearing about the letter (which I believe was even before it was read to her by KTab), then she KNEW that the FBI had already assured her that it was not credible.

Why, then, did she continue to tell everyone Hailey was going to be found? Why did she tell people that Ktab mislead her into believing her daughter was going to be found alive? That she BELIEVED her daughter was alive based on what KTab read to her from the letter?

More lies. They never end.

BostonLady said...

Did Billie Dunn go STRAIGHT to the FBI just like Shawn Adkins went STRAIGHT to his mothers on the day he quit his job???

Unknown said...

Even better, (I can't resist posting this):
“I was really upset with the way KTAB (presented the information) and even assuming that I might have met that Sonja lady,” she said. “I don’t associate with those types of people.”
I am STILL laughing.
Really? did she REALLY just say that? Um, Billie - "note to self; mother was just released from jail for drugs. Brother supposedly in prison for drugs. Husband has been arrested for drugs in the past. Boyfriend is known addict. YOU admitted to buying drugs during all of this. Yeah, KTAB has some nerve!

BostonLady said...

Lol good point Bonnie. Not to mention the drugs used by her ex bf and her husband who has been jailed how many times related to marijuana use?

I guess we are supposed to pretend we didn't know this.

BostonLady said...

Victor from KTab published another report that wraps up the week of news. And at the end of the article it was stated that in the last 24 hours they received new information and have brought it over to the investigators.

Wonder what they received ??? Did they call Billie and let her know or since Billie is bad mouthing them in the news, will they bypass her and let her find out with everyone else.

Investigators tell us they are digging deep into all of the claims made. While the leads have not led to Hailey, they have led to other new leads. Within the last 24 hours we have received new information regarding the case, which we immediately brought to investigator's attention. They are looking into the new information.

KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa. – Authorities recovered the body of a 10-month-old girl not far from where her grandmother was slain and arrested a family friend who investigators said killed them in a botched ransom kidnapping.

Saanvi Venna's body was found around 4:30 a.m. Friday in the basement of a building in the same Upper Merion Township apartment complex where she lived. Investigators had been searching for her since Monday.

The family friend killed 61-year-old Satyavathi Venna while trying to abduct the girl, whom he planned to hold for ransom, Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman said.

"The grandmother died trying to save her granddaughter's life, trying to prevent her from being taken," Ferman said.

Ferman identified the suspect as Raghunandan Yandamuri, 26. He lives in the apartment complex and was acquainted with the family as a member of the Indian community.

Yandamuri was being arraigned Friday afternoon. It wasn't clear if he had an attorney.

Ten copies of a ransom note were left in the apartment. It demanded $50,000 in exchange for the girl's safe return, Ferman said.

"It was clear it was crafted by someone who knew the family nicknames," Ferman said.

Yandamuri led investigators to the girl's body, according to Ferman. He told investigators he stuffed a handkerchief into the girl's mouth and wrapped a towel around her head before putting her in a suitcase as part of the kidnapping, she said.

An autopsy was being conducted on the girl. Ferman said her body had been found under a bench in a sauna or bathroom area.

Upper Merion Township police say the girl's father and mother moved to the U.S. from India in February 2007 and into the apartment in June.

Ferman said there was no indication Yandamuri knew the family before they arrived in the area. He had participated in a candlelight vigil held for the missing girl and distributed fliers about her, Ferman said.

The grandmother had been visiting from India since July and was scheduled to return home in January. She died of cuts to her neck and chest, a coroner said

I am sorry I ever said anything against Jessica Ridgeway's mother, calling her a fat cow and a heifer. I truly am. I watched a video of her in tears and feel so badly for her sorrow and tragic loss. I deeply regret making those remarks.

The poor thing is grossly overweight, is obviously not well. You can look at her and see she is a sick woman. I would imagine she would be so tired by the time she gets home from work in the mornings that she would be exhausted. I imagine Jessica had to do a lot of things for herself, and for her mother, that Sarah really wasn't able to do much for her. I feel bad for what I said.

As to the rest of it, not having any sympathy for those who cannot provide a ride for their children to and from their front door, I still feel the same. NO child these days is safe on any street or sidewalk, and we all KNOW thaqt; not even walking for 500 feet or to a nearby neighbors. Some of you implied you couldn't even afford $10 a month? What that means is your child's safety isn't paramount to you. There's no excuse for that!

James 3
New International Version (NIV

7 All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and sea creatures are being tamed and have been tamed by mankind, 8 but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.
9 With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. 10 Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be.

Whatever happened to the missing Iowa cousins?

It was a warm July morning in Evansdale, Iowa when two little cousins, 8-year-old Elizabeth Collins, and 10-year-old Lyric Cook went on a daylight bike ride. The little girls loved riding their bikes and playing together, especially when they were both together at Elizabeth’s house. On July 13, 2012 the girls’ grandmother, Wylma Cook, was watching the cousins at Elizabeth’s house to help out. At 11:30 a.m. the girls asked their grandmother if they could go for a bike ride. They would always ride up and down the street and go only as far as a parking lot across the street. But within an hour Wylma Cook knew something was wrong. Elizabeth and Lyric never came home. By 3 p.m. that afternoon police were searching for the girls. By 4 p.m. the girls’ purple and red bikes, Elizabeth’s purple purse and cell phone were found just 2 miles away on a trail near Meyers Lake. But since then, the two girls have not been found.

Woman fakes abduction to skip work?

A San Antonio woman is facing an aggravated perjury charge after police say she faked her own kidnapping to get a day off from work.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit cited by KCEN-TV, police found 48-year-old Sheila Bailey Eubank bound with a rope in her car. Police said the woman told them a man jumped into her car and held her at knifepoint.

After investigators confronted Eubank with surveillance video which reportedly showed her purchasing a lottery ticket during the hours she claimed she was abducted, Eubank admitted her story was false and said she wanted a day off from work, the station

John, I've wondered too what happened, if there was any news follow up on these two missing cousins. I'm guessing there hasn't been. Follow up and news just seems to have died on the vine like so many others here.

One poster keeps posting "Find Ayla", which is admirable, but does that poster actually think there is anything anyone here can do to help find Ayla or anyone else? I've never seen it happen.

Which brings me to the fact that we haven't heard anything about the DiP's for a long time either. If I understood correctly, Peter had a communication from Justin DiP that I thought he was going to share with us but never did?

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the link John. Now that one takes the cake, 'eh? She wants a day off work so ties herself up inside her car and claims she was abducted? What a mess she's made NOW! Poor thing. Look at her pathetic eyes, how frazzled she is. She needs more than a day off work.

I’m sorry I thought that Jessica’s mom was guilty. I was wrong to have seen guilty knowledge and jump to a false conclusion. I’m guessing that it must be God’s maternal instinct that put the questionable words into the mom’s mouth. I’m looking for understanding; in her language she describes the killer, (college called), The 1st two crime scenes, (small and insignificant and everybody’s worst nightmare), the abduction, (double-fisted, he hogged-tied her), and a type of weapon he owned, (double edged sword). It’s like she narrowed the search; look for college students that own double-edged swords. Why did she use those words?

Please help find Ayla,

There were sensitivity indicators in Jessica's mother's words, so don't be hard on yourself. I do not think she was truthful about certain things, but we noted in the analysis that the indicators were not related directly to the missing child.

Remember: from the beginning, the police did suspect her.

I do not believe she was honest about the life that Jessica had, specifically, and her behavior and words triggered police.

Later, police cleared her, but were so certain she was involved that they told the public not to think a killer was "out there." That is how certain they were.
