The human remains that were discovered earlier this week in a field near the McMahon Wrinkle Airpark in Big Spring, TX, about 40 miles from Dunn’s home in Colorado City, were not those of missing cheerleader Hailey Dunn. According to autopsy reports, the bones discovered belonged to a male and thus ending the speculation that Hailey Dunn had been found.
The discovery of male remains now shift to male missing persons cases in that area. The news that the remains found were not those of Hailey Dunn, who went missing on December 27, 2010 is a double edged sword of emotion. Had this been Hailey Dunn there would have finally been some answers and closure for Hailey’s family, friends and loved ones. Now that we have learned that they are not, could Hailey be alive?
The community of Colorado City had mixed emotions as the news swept through the small town on Friday. The human remains found in Big Spring are not missing 13-year-old Hailey Dunn.
“Our hopes are back, and it has people a little excited. It wasn’t our little girl but unfortunately it was somebody’s baby,” said April Wehba, one of many who have been searching for Hailey. [...]
As the community continues to hold on to hope, they have one message they’re hoping Hailey hears:
“If Hailey is alive and if there is any chance she is watching and listening, we haven’t given up hope because we just want you home. We’re not going to give up so if you’re watching we just want you to know it’s safe to come home,” Jenkins said.
The investigation continues, what happened to Hailey Dunn?
