Spokesman: Lie Detector Results Not Released in Dunn Case

The results of Wednesday's lie detector tests on Billie Dunn and Shawn Adkins weren't released in the manner described on the "Nancy Grace" show, according to Colorado City City Manager Pete Kampfer.
Kampfer told KTAB News' Tiffany Tatro the administrator of the polygraph test did not release results to anyone that was administered the test.

During Thursday night's "Nancy Grace" epsidoe on HLN, Dunn said she was told her boyfriend Shawn Adkins failed a polygraph test prior to receiving the test herself. Dunn says after learning the news, she failed her test.

An expert on Grace's panel said a polygraph test administrator should never do that and revealing information of that nature could cause someone to fail a test.

On Thursday evening, KRBC's Tim Johnston spoke with area polygraph expert Mike Gougler about whether revealing information about who passed or failed a test is commonplace. Gougler says everyone who takes a polygraph is typically told afterwards if they passed or failed, so that's not unusual.

Gougler is not directly involved with this search, and could not speak about the case specifically, but in his experience he says these type of tests can really aid in the investigation.

"When they start running polygraphs early on, they're trying to eliminate people so they can focus their efforts on the most important factor, and that's the safe recovery of the individual that has disappeared."

UPDATE: Searchers Hit Streets as Dunn Investigation Intensifies

Colorado City, TX—Investigators in plain clothes will go door-to-door Friday asking residents of Colorado City for any information they might have on 13-year-old Hailey Dunn, who was been missing since Dec. 27.

After a day of twists, turns, and constant developments, Friday morning started off rather quietly in the town of 4,000, located halfway between Abilene and Midland.

Hailey was last seen on a Monday afternoon, having told her mother's boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, that she was going to spend the night with a friend.  She was reported missing 24 hours later.

Volunteers have again hit the streets to look for any signs of the missing Colorado City Middle School student.  An organized search has been setup at 2 p.m. Friday at the Mitchell County courthouse. Various groups have planned other searches, with many of those searches being organized on Facebook.

Abilene's Child Abduction Unit joined the investigation today, putting the number of assisting agencies at 10.

As of 10 a.m. Friday, Hailey's mother Billy Dunn was still resting following an intense interview on HLN's "Nancy Grace" program Thursday evening.

"It's not feeling good," she said of the chances of a happy ending.

Officials continue to tell bigcountryhomepage.com they're following "substantial leads" and the search is intensifying.
"Our leads are primarily around corroboration and information from the different people that they've interviewed and talked to," said City Manager Pete Kampfer during in interview with Lane Stone. "We're corroborating all the different information and data that they've provided."

DPS helicopters are on standby in case they're needed to flying over Colorado City for a second day. On Thursday, a chopper flew over town landing at one point. City officials tell us the landing was nothing out of the ordinary and no discoveries were made during the landing.

Part of the investigation over the next few days is expected to center around sex offenders who live around the Dunn home.  Colorado City City Manager Pete Kampfer says the city is aggressively tracking sex offenders to make sure they know where they're located at all times.

"We're also following up on information that they've provided us to make sure they are where they say there are," said Kampfer.

"It's not safe (here) and this makes everybody realize it," Hailey's father, Clint Dunn, said.


Students have returned to Colorado City Middle School with additional counselors on hand to talk to students about what happened.

"We are trying to give our kids a sense of normalcy so we can give the kids a little security," Tammy Johnson, one of Hailey's teachers said."

Private donations have swelled the reward money to $25,000 for information that leads to Hailey's safe return.

The City Manager Pete Kampfer is "quoted" in regards to the polygraph issue in the article that Klaas posted.

If Billie was not informed that she and her boyfriend failed the polygraph ... what could possibly be her motivation for outright lying on the Nancy Grace show?

Polygraphs unconfirmed

By Staff
Posted January 7, 2011 - 11:29am

In a press conference this morning, City Manager Pete Kampfer stated that polygraphs results were unconfirmed.

"It is my understanding that they (task force) did not advise whether a person passed or failed," Kampfer said.

Kampfer further stated that  not informing interviewees of the results of their polygraph tests is standard law enforcement procedure and to his knowledge, none of the people involved  had been informed of the results.

I wonder if the LE have talked to Hailey's friends to ask them how Hailey felt about the boyfriend and if she had revealed anything to friends that he made her uncomfortable or if she was ok with him. I know that at first Mom said that Hailey did not like the boyfriend, but that Hailey and he had been getting along better lately..
Hope that TES goes to look for Hailey.
I really don't think that it is such a bad idea to go house to house and look in closets etc..Jessica Lunsford was kept in a closet and a little girl in England was hid in an apartment for about  3 weeks before she was found..Mom was in on that one though..It could be that Hailey is hiding out or that someone is holding her against her will.. other missing kids have done that before...We have to look at everything when a child goes missing..jmo..I don't think that she is hiding but never hurts to check it all out...would be a miracle if that was the case.

Search Intensifies; Officials Looking North Of Colorado City

COLORADO CITY, Texas -- The search for a missing Colorado City teenager has intensified Friday afternoon, particularly on the northern areas of town.

Dozens, if not hundreds, of volunteers are combing though vacant lots, and a dozen of law enforcement officers from several departments are knocking on doors, two-by-two, interviewing residents and checking closets and any other possible hiding place for Hailey Dunn.

Law enforcement officials are focusing their search on the northern areas in Colorado City, and KTXS has learned, as far north as the community of Dunn, about 13 miles north of Colorado City. Search officials have also said they’re interested in searching an abandoned cotton gin in the area.

More than 15 billboards featuring Hailey Dunn have gone up – from Abilene to the Midland-Odessa area. Although an Amber Alert has never been officially approved or issued, the billboard space has been donated by Lamar Advertising.

Officials working the case also spent time Friday correcting misunderstandings or misinformation in case.

Sparky Dean, senior trooper in the Department of Public Safety, told KTXS on Friday that none of Hailey’s relatives has been told of any failures of polygraph tests.

This information contradicted statements made by Billie Dunn, who said that she and live-in boyfriend Shawn Adkins had both failed the tests. She made her statement on the HLN’s “Nancy Grace” show Thursday night.

Dunn, contacted Friday after Dean made his statement, reasserted her claim that she was told there had been “deception indicated” in the polygraph tests.

There are now 12 law enforcement and child protection agencies involved in the case, including the FBI, and 30 law enforcement officials on the ground working the case.

Hailey, an eighth-grade student at Colorado Middle School, has been missing since Dec. 27.

Mystery Deepens Around Missing Teen Cheerleader

More than a week ago, 13-year-old cheerleader Hailey Dunn vanished from central Texas without a trace.

The last person who saw her was her mother's boyfriend, Shawn Akins, who reportedly says the girl was going to her dad's house and then would spend the night at her friend's place.

Dunn never showed up at either location, according to CNN. Police also say that the friend didn't know Hailey was coming over.

People in her hometown of Colorado City, Texas – located 70 miles west of Abilene – are up in arms because an Amber Alert was never released.

Police tell the Abilene Reporter-News that their requests were denied because there was not enough information that Hailey was abducted.

Adkins has met with police and has not been named as a suspect, but there are conflicting reports about whether he took a polygraph test.

Hailey's mother, Billie Dunn, told KTAB news that her boyfriend did indeed take the test, but several other family members have said he refused.

Texas Rangers and Colorado City Police have searched the home Hailey shared with her mother, brother David Dunn, and Adkins, as well as the surrounding area for clues.

According to KTAB, bloodhounds tracked Hailey's trail to a motel near her home last week. Authorities have continued to search the town's wooded areas by horseback and foot.

There is a $25,000 reward is being offered for the girl's safe return.

Anyone with information regarding Hailey's whereabouts can call the Colorado City Police Department at 325-728-5294 or 325-728-3161.

I think that would we a smart decision to talk to her friends about what was going on in her life, how she felt about SA etc.....

Totally agree about the closets if OTHERS are searching, I guess I read it wrong and they wanted folks to search their own closet but others closet's is different and sadly Jessica was alive 3 days IIRC and alot of it in the closet I still can't believe nobody else in that scum's family were arrested. Always can look forward to a miracle and pray (what a nice change that would be)....I do also consider the proximity to the highway and random abduction, it only takes a second to snatch someone.

I hope they are right. I pray they are right. Maybe they know something we don't. I hope they don't have the "it can't happen here" syndrome.

I pray they are correct.  I am exceptionally confused on why they are leaving TES on standby rather then having their help to search right now if they believe Hailey needs to be found.

"We'll start at the city limits and walk down Highway 208, checking pastures and fields until we get to Dunn," she said.

Volunteers should wear jeans, boots, walking shoes or tennis shoes and flashlights.

"Bring a crow bar or pry bar for lifting heavy rocks or looking under stuff," she said.

Hailey's Mom: Not Much Has Changed

<snipped>

Colorado City, TX—Not much has changed in the search for 13-year-old Hailey Dunn, her mother, Billie Dunn, said on Friday afternoon.  She spent the afternoon at home with DPS investigators being briefed on her daughter's case.

Investigators in plain clothes went go door-to-door Friday asking residents of Colorado City for any information they might have on Dunn, who was been missing since Dec. 27.

After a day of twists, turns, and constant developments, Friday morning started off rather quietly in the town of 4,000, located halfway between Abilene and Midland.

Hailey was last seen on a Monday afternoon, having told her mother's boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, that she was going to spend the night with a friend.  She was reported missing 24 hours later.

Hundreds of volunteers have again hit the streets and woods across Michell County to look for any signs of the missing Colorado City Middle School student.  An organized search started at 2 p.m. Friday at the Mitchell County courthouse. Various groups have planned other searches, with many of those searches being organized on Facebook.
