Hailey Dunn, Missing Texas Teen, Body Found 2 Years Later
Hailey Dunn, the 13-year-old cheerleader who has been missing since December 2010, has been found. Her remains were located in West Texas near Lake J.B. Thomas in Scurry County on March 16, authorities announced on Friday.
An investigation into the cause of her disappearance and the ultimate cause of death is ongoing, according to Scurry Country Sheriff Trey Wilson. He also revealed that the county's district attorney confirmed the identity of the remains on Friday.
Dunn's body was found roughly 20 miles northwest of Colorado City, the town she had lived in with her mother and her mother's boyfriend, Shawn Adkins. Adkins had told police that the last time they had seen Hailey was a day before they reported her missing. Apparently, the middle schooler had told him that she was going to stay and her father's home one night, and at her friends on the following. She never turned up at either residence.
Although Adkins was initially considered a person of interest, he was never charged in Dunn's disappearance or murder. Dunn's mother, Billie Dunn, was charged and plead no contest to making a false claim about Adkins' whereabouts to law enforcement.
Neither Billie Dunn nor Adkins have admitted any wrongdoing or involvement in Hailey's disappearance.
