Colorado City, Texas - Hailey Dunn, 13, has been missing since December 27. We’ve covered the case here and in our forums, with the usual “oh, Mom’s boyfriend” response. I mean, really. You see a few hundred of these and it plays out like variations on a damned theme every time, right? Mom was high, Dad was also kinda high, mom Billie Dunn met 25-year-old Shawn Adkins online, moved him in, Hailey went missing, and now everyone’s all shocked like this shit never happens and Nancy Grace acts like she’s won the lottery. Again. But now we have affidavits and search warrants and new case data, and the case appears to be breaking. Hailey, at this writing, remains missing, and no one has been arrested or charged in her disappearance. Shawn Adkins is a person of interest.
Now, some Myspace pics have come up that show Shawn Adkins flashing the Evil Devil Sign, and one affidavit lists multiple true crime documents printed by Billie Dunn involving serial killers. There was also some ICP stuff, and also, Shawn Adkins has a Cryptshow account (user name unconscious_mind78) and likes Michael Myers. A lot. A lot a lot. He apparently even bought a mask, and posted feedback on how awesome the Myers mask was on January 6 or 7 – a week after Hailey went missing. Now, none of this makes him guilty, and none of this makes him a cultist or Satanist. There is no evidence at this point that Hailey was the victim of any culty activity whatsoever. Not that pointing this out does any good to the nice people of West Texas. In fact, your favorite imp got the banhammer just for mentioning this site and refuting the hilarious Hailey Was Prey To A Satanic Cult theory over at the Help Find Hailey Dunn Facebook page.
What does make Shawn Adkins a creepy bastard is that he told investigators that Hailey was promiscuous and sexually active without being prompted. Nobody else has said anything of the kind, and it was weird enough that the officer affiant noted how weird it was in the affidavit to search his cell phone. That’s creepy. Shawn threatening to kill both Billie and Hailey in February, but still getting a free ticket to cohabitationville, that’s creepy. Billie and Shawn having people over for New Year’s Eve after Hailey went missing is creepy. Billie and Shawn withdrawing money from an ATM at 6:20 pm on December 27 to buy drugs is creepy. Nobody seeing Hailey after 9:00 pm on December 26 is extremely creepy, and Shawn telling Hailey’s uncle that “killing a child is like killing a deer” is seriously creepy.
Hopefully police, unlike some of these online cybersleuths, are chasing evidence rather than shadows of cultists and horror sites and Hailey will be found and brought home – dead or alive. I just hope that Hailey is found in better shape than Zahra Baker, another recent victim of creepy, horror-loving online white trash nutball child killers.Tags: Abduction, Billie Dunn, Child Abuse, Child Endangerment, Child Murder, Child Neglect, facebook, Hailey Dunn, horror movie, Missing Person, Myspace, Shawn Adkins, Texas
