Remains Found Near J. B. Thomas Lake in Snyder, Texas Positively Identified as Missing Teen Hailey Dunn


It is sad but not unexpected news to report … the remains found last month near J. B. Thomas Lake in Snyder, Texas have been positively identified as missing teen Hailey Dunn.   Dental records and DNA were used to try to identify the badly decomposed bones. The teen’s scattered remains were discovered by an unidentified person on March 16, 2013. Her body was found about 20 miles northwest of the girl’s hometown of Colorado City.  The Texas Department of Public Safety, Texas Rangers and FBI investigators spent nearly four days gathering the remains and evidence that could lead to a conviction. Hailey Dunn went missing on 12/27/10 in Colorado City, TX. Hailey Dunn’s mother’s boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, was the last person to see Hailey before she went missing on December 27.

Billie Jean Dunn, the mother of Hailey Dunn, pleaded no contest in June 2011 to making a false report to law enforcement and received a suspended 90-day jail term with probation. The mother and Adkins have denied involvement in Hailey’s disappearance. Law enforcement officials have named Adkins as a “person of interest” in the case, but have not charged him.
