Morbid Affidavits: Strange Behavior Related to Missing Colorado City Teen, Hailey Dunn

Hailey Dunn, a 13-year-old Texas girl, is missing after never showing up at a friend’s house. Now, there is a wide-ranging search and abduction investigation for Hailey Dunn, who disappeared in late December in Colorado City.

Hailey Dunn, 13, was last seen on Monday December 27th at 1 p.m., at 1804 Chestnut Street in Colorado City, Texas. Hailey Dunn is a white female, 5’1′ with hazel eyes and brown hair and pierced ears. She was last seen wearing navy blue sweat pants, a short sleeve light colored T-shirt and pink and white tennis shoes. Prior to her disappearance Hailey was a cheerleader at her middle school.

Affidavits, obtained by KTXS, the ABC television affiliate for the Abilene/Sweetwater/Brownwood market, through the Freedom of Information Act, revealed the following:

During the course of a detailed investigation it was determined by police investigators that the last known person to see Hailey was her live-in boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, 25, on Monday, December 27, 2010 in the late afternoon.

David Dunn, Hailey’s brother is quoted saying he returned home about 4:00 p.m. Monday, December 27, 2010 and pounded on the door to the house for five minutes, but nobody answered. When David Dunn managed to get into the house, he observed Shawn Adkins standing in the hallway with a “deer in the headlights” look.

On Tuesday, December 28, 2010 at 2:00 p.m., Hailey Dunn born August 28, 1997, was reported missing by her biological mother, Billie Dunn.

Investigators discovered inconsistencies in the story Adkins told them about where he was the day Hailey went missing.

Adkins and Billie Dunn both failed polygraph tests. Billie Dunn was dismissed on the first voluntary submission of a polygraph test after she was found to be under the influence of narcotics. On Dunn’s second attempt, the investigators concluded there was “deception indicated.” Billie Dunn was given the chance to discuss and explain “why she failed the examination.” Officials said she couldn’t explain them, and she walked out on the interview.

Shawn Adkins twice refused to take polygraph examinations. Then he agreed to a polygraph, but after providing some inconsistent information, he walked out during the polygraph test. Officials reported he failed the polygraph test, particularly concerning the whereabouts of Hailey; however investigators were able to obtain indications that Hailey Dunn may be located in Scurry County.

Nothing was noted missing in Hailey’s room after she disappeared, including her new iPod, cash, and her favorite clothing items; also left in the house were her toothbrush, hairbrush, contact solution, a new MP3 Player, and a jacket friends say she’d never leave home without.

It was uncharacteristic of Hailey to leave home without letting her mother know where she was going; it was extremely cold outside, and Hailey was allegedly last seen leaving without a jacket.

Hailey had lived in Colorado City most of her life, so it is most unlikely she would have gotten lost on her way to a friend’s house a few blocks away.

No witnesses saw Hailey walking on the date she is believed to have gone missing.

Shawn Adkins, Hailey’s step-father, claimed he had an altercation with his boss and was fired from his job; investigators later learned he was not fired from his job, and he had no altercation with his boss.

Located in the bedroom of BIllie Jean Dunn and Shawn Adkins was a box that was searched by police with consent. Within the box were documents printed from websites that focused on mass murderers, serial killers, sexual sadists, murders of family members, motives from major cases, and other similar topics. The documents were printed from the following websites:,, and During an interview, Billie Dunn informed investigators that she was responsible for printing the documents that were discovered in her residence.

Juggalo or Juggalette (the latter being feminine) is a name given to fans of Insane Clown Posse or any other Psychopathic Records hip hop group. Juggalos have developed their own idioms, slang, and characteristics.

There have been numerous incidents of Juggalos committing violent acts including murder, kidnapping, assault, and arson (though studies have noted a lack of evidence linking music with violence). Although Juggalos have denied any connection to gang activity, authorities have classified them as a gang in Utah; Arizona; Monroe County, Pennsylvania; and Modesto, California. Because of this, some schools have prohibited students from wearing Insane Clown Posse related paraphernalia.

Insane Clown Posse is an American hip hop duo from Detroit, Michigan. The group is composed of Joseph Bruce and Joseph Utsler, who perform under the respective personas of the “wicked clowns” Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope. Insane Clown Posse performs a style of hardcore hip hop known as horrorcore and is known for its elaborate live performances. The duo has earned two platinum and five gold albums.
