Discussion in 'Cold Cases' started by Kimster, Oct 29, 2015.

    Hailey vanished Dec. 27,2010 from her Colorado City, Texas home. On April 4, 2013, Hailey's body was discovered near J.B. Thomas Lake, 30 miles from her home. There has been a lot of discussion about Hailey, but no arrest of any suspects in her case.

    Why is there still no justice for Hailey?

    COLORADO CITY, Texas -

    Over two years after the remains of Hailey Dunn were found, officials in Colorado City are looking to demolish her former home. It comes at the request of the neighbors. Squatters have made it their home and it now poses safety and health hazards.

    "We did condemn the building because there is some very unsafe areas in it," said City Manager David Hoover. "It is very unsanitary. There are no utilities hooked up to it and it is uninhabitable."

    After Hailey's body was found in March 2013, the home served as a memorial for the 13-year-old. Now, the only people that come to visit are the homeless looking for a place to stay.

    "The latest thing we've heard are complaints from neighbors about the weeds and them being so tall and grown-up and squatters living in it," said Hoover .

    Hailey's friend, Hannah Sosa, says if the home is destroyed, it will be taking all they have left of Hailey.

    SPECIAL REPORT: Justice for Hailey

    A burning question hangs in the air, not only in Colorado City, but across West Texas. When will we know what really happened to Hailey Dunn?

    The five year anniversary of Hailey's disappearance is coming up. Her remains were found and identified more than two years ago. One would think the case was close to being wrapped up.

    It frustrates Clint to think that his daughter's disappearace and death may not be any closer to being solved today than before.

    "The case has gone from law enforcement to law enforcement. Each time, they start all back over on the case and end up no where. Every time."

    "I'm just going to say it like this: we all know who did this," Clint said. "It's not fair that this type of person gets to go free after doing such a horrible thing to such an innocent person."

    I couldn't agree with you more, Clint!

    Hailey Dunn's Father "Hopeful" About Renewed Interest in Cold Case

    Clint Dunn said he felt a flicker of hope this week - the first sign of light after "five years in a dark tunnel" - upon learning of renewed efforts to investigate his daughter's unsolved murder.

    The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) launched a public awareness program to generate new leads in cold cases across the state and issued a statement Wednesday asking for the public's help in solving Hailey Dunn's case.

    In hopes that there will someday be an officially named kidnapper- killer, we will have a thread for Hailey.

    Colorado City TX
    Most will remember Haily Dunn who disappeared overnight right after Christmas in 2010. Her mother, Billie Dunn & mom's live-in boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, both failed polygraph tests & Adkins was a person of interest from the beginning. They were later found to be in possession of a large amount of pornography. Billie Dunn's actions brought suspicion on herself.

    Hailey's partial remains were discovered in March 2013, but there has not been an arrest.

    The first link above is a good summary of the case.

    @Akoya thanks for putting this photo up of Hailey, until tonight i always thought she was Holy Bobo. I got the big smiles confused i think, and because the names both started with H.

    About the failed polygraph tests of the mum and stepfather, do the details of the test results get made public noZme? If yes - did they both fail the same questions? Or different questions to one and other?
