The Hailey Dunn case is heating up again after the teen from Colorado City, Texas has been gone since 2010. Earlier this week the discovery of human remains rocked the community of Colorado City as well as nationwide, and there is plenty of speculation returning to the front of this high profile story. Could the skeletal remains found this week in fact be the missing Colorado City teen?
Nancy Grace discussed this week’s gruesome find and she rehashed the case as it has been known to the public. She revealed that while identification of the body hasn’t been achieved yet, details of its appearance have leaked out indicating that this could in fact be the body of Hailey Dunn. It’s rumored that there were blonde hairs on the skeleton, but that is not confirmed. What is confirmed, however, is that the skeletal hands were of the size of an adolescent.
This timeline recounts the same events discussed on tonight’s airing of Nancy Grace, and the one thing that hasn’t changed in this investigation is the only person of interest. Shawn Adkins was the last person to have seen the missing girl and he claims that she had left to walk to a friend’s house. That was the last time she was reportedly seen. Shawn Adkins is her mother’s boyfriend, and it appears that she still supports this man after all this time. Let’s see if that changes if and when this body is identified as her missing teen daughter.
