Search for Oregon boy who disappeared from Portland school grows as police meet with parents





Published June 07, 2010

Kyron Horman




PORTLAND, Ore. -- Classes resumed Monday amid extra security at an Oregon elementary school as the FBI joined in the search for a 7-year-old boy who authorities described as a "missing endangered child."

Investigators interviewed nearly 200 of Kyron Horman's classmates and their parents over the weekend, and crisis counselors were brought to Skyline Elementary on Monday. The boy disappeared sometime after his stepmother left him at the school on Friday morning.

Sheriff Dan Staton said late Sunday night that he was "not prepared" to call the boy's disappearance a kidnapping. Staton described Kyron as a "missing endangered child" because more than two days had elapsed since he disappeared and because search efforts were hampered by rainy weather.

The boy and his stepmother, Terri Moulton Horman, attended a science fair at the school early Friday, and she last saw him walking down a hallway toward his second grade classroom at 8:45 a.m. He was wearing a "CSI" T-shirt and dark cargo pants.

Police said Kyron did not return home on the bus as scheduled. The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office was contacted about 4 p.m., and authorities have been searching the school and the surrounding area ever since. The search focused on the area around the school and the two miles to Kyron's house.



Investigators asked Kyron's fellow students and their parents to come to the school Sunday and said they spoke with some 200 of them to glean clues into his disappearance. Relatives also distributed flyers with the boy's picture.

Authorities were reviewing photos and videos taken at the school's science fair. The last photo of Kyron shows him smiling Friday in front of his project on the red-eyed tree frog.

Asked if there were any persons of interest, Staton replied: "In this type of situation, I think everyone is of interest to us."

The FBI has dispatched its Child Abduction Rapid Deployment Team, as well as its Behavioral Analysis Unit, which often takes part when a young child disappears. Its presence doesn't mean police have determined the child has been abducted, the FBI said.

The boy's parents were not ready to speak, Lt. Mary Lindstrand said Sunday.

Superintendent of Portland Public Schools Carole Smith would not comment on the details of the district's policy for reporting school absences. Details about whether Kyron was reported as absent were not known.

(CNN) -- The search for a missing 7-year-old Oregon boy is now in its fifth day.
Police said they are not ready to call Kyron Horman's disappearance a criminal investigation yet, while the boy's parents have indicated they will release a statement to the public sometime Wednesday.
"We're not prepared to call it a criminal investigation at this point," Captain Jason Gates of the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office told reporters Tuesday, "But we are certainly prepared to call it a missing endangered child investigation."
He also narrowed the scope of the incident.
"What I can tell you is that we have no reason to believe that this is anything other than an isolated case," Gates said.
Kyron was reported missing by his stepmother Friday afternoon after he did not return home from school, authorities said.
According to investigators, Kyron's stepmother said she last saw him Friday morning walking down a hallway towards his second-grade classroom at Skyline Elementary School.The school was holding a science fair at the time, officials said.
"We can tell you that we have completed 99 percent of the interviews with the children at Skyline Elementary School," Gates said. "We've also completed the majority of interviews with the staff and parents at Skyline."
The sheriff's office said no one at the school saw Kyron after 8:45 a.m. Friday and that Kyron never made it to his classroom.
Authorities continue to pursue hundreds of tips, most of them from Oregon and Washington.
"The leads that are being provided would not suggest that it would be a national search at this point," Gates said.
"We don't have enough information to satisfy the criteria to complete an Amber Alert or issue an Amber Alert," Gates explained. "Amber Alerts are designed to find children very quickly when we have specific information."

Anyone with information on Kyron Horman's whereabouts is asked to call the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office at 503-261-2847

Kyron Horman: Missing Endangered Child



Posted on June 8th, 2010 by Valhall
Kyron Horman’s science fair project was on the “red-eyed tree frog”. His stepmother attended the science fair held at Skyline Elementary School in Portland, Oregon, Friday morning. She most likely was the one that brought all his little science fair things and helped him get it set up. The science fair ended and his stepmom last saw him as he walked down the hall to his second-grade class. This would be the last known photograph of Kyron with his red-eyed frog science fair project.


Kyron didn’t come home after school on Friday. Kyron typically rode the bus home, but on Friday, he did not arrive home as he should have. By 3:45 pm Kyron’s stepmom had called 911. They began searching the school and all along the 2 mile distance from the school to his home. No one has seen Kyron since Friday morning. The police are not making all information public at this point so it cannot be stated with any certainty at this point if Kyron was seen later during Friday’s school day, but articles are currently stating that an unidentified person at the school was reported to have “last seen” Kyron at 9 a.m. It should be noted that ABC has reported that Kyron “never made it” to his second grade class that morning. It is unknown at this time if this is a verified statement or not. It appears to be, however, since Multnomah County Sheriff Lt. Mary Lindstrand is quoted saying “…his teacher didn’t see him.”
While the Sheriff’s department is being slow to classify this as an abduction, they are classifying Kyron as a “missing endangered child”. That Kyron does not appear to have made it successfully to his classroom just 150 feet down the hall from where his stepmother was last with him, seems to imply something happened within those school walls. The disturbing situation is that there were numerous visitors (not signed in apparently) in attendance for the science fair that morning. This would be assumed to be family and friends of the elementary students participating, but this also allows a predator to mingle in the crowd. The school apparently does not have surveillance cameras but the sheriff’s department has been reviewing any photos or videos taken by visitors at the science fair.
Kyron’s stepmom states he was wearing a CSI T-shirt (as can be seen in the photo above) and black cargo pants on Friday.
Multnomah County Sheriff Captain Jason Gates provided an emotional update yesterday saying they would not give up on bringing Kyron home to his family.
If you have information that could lead to Kyron coming home…please call the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office tip line at 503 261-2847.
Help bring Kyron home.

Ore. boy's disappearance now a criminal case

Monday, June 14, 2010 5:07:41 AM




PORTLAND, Ore.(AP)

Ten days after a 7-year-old Portland boy disappeared, Multnomah County Sheriff Dan Staton fought back tears while announcing the search has been reclassified as a criminal investigation.
Until now, Kyron Horman has been considered a "missing endangered child," a designation that spans a range of possibilities, including that a minor is danger after getting lost.
Staton announced the reclassification _ along with a $25,000 reward for information that leads to Kyron _ at a crowded news conference Sunday. But he offered no explanation for the change.
"(The investigation) is not going to stop," Staton said. "I will address those types of issues once we've located Kyron."
It's not the only detail about Kyron's disappearance that remains a mystery, as school officials and law enforcement try to keep a clamp on information they say could compromise the investigation.
What is known is that Kyron saw his stepmother, Terri Moulton Horman, in the hallway of rural Skyline Elementary School on the morning of June 4. It was minutes after he had presented his second-grade science fair project, a diorama on red-eyed tree frogs.
Hours passed. Kyron's school bus arrived at his home that afternoon, but he wasn't on it. His stepmother called the school, and the school called 911.
Investigators have refused to release a more detailed timeline of the day Kyron went missing _ or say whether they've found any clues, or have any suspects or theories about what happened.
And it's the unknown that has consumed the attention of the people in this area, to say nothing of the camera crews and TV trucks that descended seemingly overnight.
"There's a terrible cloud over everything," said Elinor Markgraf, who has lived in the Skyline area for decades.
At a high school graduation party last week, Markgraf said the mood was tense.
"Nobody was talking about it," Markgraf said. "But it was so close to the surface."
One other detail is clear: Search and rescue teams have been combing a two-mile radius around Kyron's school. Skyline Elementary sits 725 feet above sea level, perched on the crest of a hill that takes a 300-foot drop to the east into the basin near a fork of the Columbia River some 5 miles away.
Teams spent hours drawing and redrawing on maps, splitting up the methodical work of walking the area with dogs, on horseback and sometimes in "grid teams," men and women walking nearly shoulder-to-shoulder, searching for evidence that Kyron had been there.
The elements worked against the teams that searched the area's dense forests. The rain that fell nearly every day made embankments near roadways slick and footholds undependable. At least one searcher had to be taken from the area by ambulance. But no details on the searcher's injuries were released.
"It is difficult terrain and, at times, difficult circumstances," said Sheriff's Capt. Monte Reiser.
Staton said Sunday the search for Kyron will be scaled back, with teams that came from across the state returning to their homes. But he said local teams will keep looking.
"Our commitment and resources are unwavering," Reiser added.

Van der Sloot's life worth $50 in Peruvian prison?


Last Update: 10:20 am




SHARETHIS.addEntry({title:'Van der Sloot's life worth $50 in Peruvian prison?',url:"http://www.cbs42.com/s/VOSZZgihvkaLc9rwHZXlUQ.cspx"},{button:true});






"For $50, someone will cut your throat. If the family of this young lady wanted to pay a prisoner there 50 or 100 bucks, they'd be standing in line to cut his throat."
((AP / CBS))

Birmingham, Al (WIAT) Life is cheap in Peru's prisons...so cheap that Joran van der Sloot could have his throat cut for as little as $50.

That's the opinion of international defense lawyer Michael Griffith who told the CBS Early Show "He's gonna probably have to stay in what's called 'the tourist section,' or 'the tourist dorm.' But even prisoners outside can get in there. They shine shoes, they cook for the foreign prisoners. But in this prison, you can get anything -- you can get women, drug, weapons, you can get money. For $50, someone will cut your throat. If the family of this young lady wanted to pay a prisoner there 50 or 100 bucks, they'd be standing in line to cut his throat."

In turn, could van der Sloot's family pay prisoners to protect him?

"No," Griffith said bluntly. "I mean, if they want to get you in this prison, they'll get you. In fact, the day that I was there, I got back to the gate a little bit late and the guard wanted to keep me in overnight. So for a couple of cigarettes, he let me out.

"Money will get you anything in this prison and I'll tell you, I'd be very surprised if van der Sloot makes the seven or eight or ten years, whatever he'll get, with time off for good behavior."

PostSubject: Sources: Search for Kyron Horman Focuses on Step-Mom, Cell Records   Fri Jun 18, 2010 1:14 pm

Sources: Search for Kyron Horman Focuses on Step-Mom, Cell Records
4:52 PM June 17th, 2010 by James Pitkin


As the search for 7-year-old Kyron Horman continues, one of the most puzzling aspects has been rescue teams’ repeated and intensive searches of Sauvie Island.
The island is more than five miles from rural Skyline Elementary School, where Horman was reported missing June 4. But rescuers on horseback, on foot and in dive teams have repeatedly scoured the island beginning around June 10 and continuing this week — even after Multnomah County Sheriff Dan Staton called off other major search operations last Sunday.
WW has learned that federal, county and city law-enforcement officials say the reason for the search of Sauvie Island is that cell-phone records reveal Kyron’s step-mother, Terri Moulton Horman, may have been on the island the day he disappeared.
And as searchers comb the island, law-enforcement officials say the investigation is increasingly focusing on the step-mother, because of problems with her account of what she was doing the day Kyron went missing.
This information comes from five separate law-enforcement officials from agencies at the city, county and federal level. To our knowledge, none is directly involved with the investigation.
But several said they’ve heard the same or similar accounts from multiple officials in the law-enforcement community. All agreed that Terri Moulton Horman has become a main focus of police attention because of problems with her story.
Four of the sources say they’ve heard Horman’s story doesn’t jibe with her cell-phone records from June 4.
Cell phones send off a signal called a “ping” to the nearest cell-phone tower when the phone is in use. With the help of cell-phone companies, law-enforcement officials and rescuers can use those signals to locate people (there’s an explanation from the Chicago Tribune here).
Horman has been the source of public speculation since early in the investigation. She reported seeing Kyron last in a school hallway about 8:45 a.m., when she says she was leaving him at the school and he was on his way to his homeroom.
Skeptics latched on to the fact Horman wrote on her Facebook page she was “hitting the gym.” To some, that seemed out of character for a parent with a missing child. Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office officials explained at a news conference that they’d told the family to continue their normal routine and try to stay healthy.
Members of the family spoke out for the first time publicly at a news conference June 11, but they did not take questions from reporters. Terri Moulton Horman is the second woman from the left in the photo below. She’s seen comforting Kyron’s biological mother, Desiree Young.

National by Bethany Burks
Kyron Horman News and Case Update – Kyron’s Stepmother Under Scrutiny
June 19th, 2010

Kyron Horman News and Case Update – Kyron’s Stepmother Under Scrutiny. Kyron Horman is,still missing over two weeks after he went missing from his school in Utah. His stepmother claims that she seen him at 8:45 am on June 4th as he was walking towards his classroom 150 feet away. That’s the last time anyone has seen him alive
Two weeks later, and this missing persons case has turned into a criminal investigation. Authorities have put out flyers, and they seem to target his stepmother, raising a lot of eyebrows.
The flyer asks if anyone has seen Kyron, and also asks if they had seen Terri Horman or her white Ford Truck on the day that the young boy went missing.
The focus of the investigation shifted to Mrs. Horman after her story about what she did on the day of his disappearance didn’t match her cell phone records. Due to cell phone records found, investigators have been combing bodies of water around the area that he went missing from.
Kyron attended a science fair, and was photographed just minute before he vanished wearing a CSI shirt and a pair of cargo pants. Terri Horman posted the pictures of Kyron to her FaceBook page the day he went missing.
Of course, just because the authorities are inquiring about Kyron’s stepmother doesn’t mean that

PostSubject: Kyron Horman Case - John Walsh & Another Polygraph for Terri Moulton Horman   Sun Jun 20, 2010 7:40 am


National by Bethany Burks
Kyron Horman Case – John Walsh & Another Polygraph for Terri Moulton Horman
June 20th, 2010


Kyron Horman Missing Case – Another Polygraph for Terri Moulton Horman. The stepmother of Kyron Horman in the missing child case is going to have to take yet another polygraph test after suspicions have mounted about her wherabouts the day Kyron went missing. Cell phone records obtained from the phone company don’t exactly jive with the story that Terri has told authorities.
Mrs. Horman claims that she last seen Kyron heading towards his classroom 150 feet away from her. She turned around and left the school before she seen him go into his class. His teachers claim they never saw him.
After he didn’t return home, 9-1-1 was alerted and the missing persons investigation began.
Over two weeks later, and still no Kyron. A three page flyer passed out around the area he went missing suggested that the authorities are scrutinizing his stepmother for his disappearance. The flyer inquired about whether or not people saw Terri Moulton Horman the day Kyron went missing, and if so where and when.
In addition, she’s agreed to a second polygraph test in connection to the case. She’s not happy about it – but she is confused as to why she’s getting all the same questions considering she didn’t do anything.
Whether or not Mrs. Horman is a person of interest has yet to be reported. However, there’s a lot of scrutiny surrounding her and all that she did the day that her stepson went missing.
However, when taken in consideration with the “gut feeling” of America’s Most Wanted John Walsh, which indicates that he feels there’s already a person of interest in the case and that he thinks authorities don’t want to compromise the case the reports are enough to make you wonder what’s really going on.

The questionnaire asked those completing them to tell what time they arrived and left the school as well as their purpose. If anyone had accompanied them to the school they were asked to name them and explain their reason for joining them. The fourth question asked if anyone saw Kyron Horman and if so what time did they see him and whether or not he was with someone.
The questionnaire specifically asks if anyone saw Terri Horman or the family’s White Ford F250 truck at or near the school. The questionnaire also asks whether or not witnesses saw anything suspicious or out of the ordinary.
Parents were asked to fill out the questionnaire for their young children as well.
Kyron Horman disappeared on June 4, 2010. If you have any information regarding Kyron Horman you are asked to contact the tip line at 1-503-261-2847. Please call 911 in the case of an emergency.

Joran van der Sloot to open in jail

Published on : 20 June 2010 - 12:08pm | By Pablo Gámez (RNW)





The case against Dutch murder suspect Joran van der Sloot gets underway on Monday, he will hear the charges against him during a formal opening in the Miguel Castro Castro prison in Peru where he is being held.
The charges will be read out against the Dutchman by Judge Carlos Morales.
The arraignment will take place behind closed doors. In legal terms, what follows is the pre-trial investigation. Van der Sloot's detention can be extended up to twelve months.
During the investigation, the authorities will try to clarify the facts and determine any guilt. Police sources earlier reported that van der Sloot had confessed to the murder of 21-yearold Stephany Flores.
Student Flores was seen on CCTV entering van der Sloot's hotel room after the two had been at a poker tournament - the next day she was found dead and in the meantime van der Sloot had fled to Chile. He was handed back over to the Peruvian authorities after giving himself up to police.
Lawyers for van der Sloot have remained silent but question marks are said to have been raised about the confession.
If declared guilty, Van der Sloot faces a minimum of 15 years imprisonment.
In an exclusive interview with Radio Netherlands Worldwide, Edward Álvarez, lawyer of the Flores family, insists that despite concerns that Joran van der Sloot will get a fair trial in Peru:
"Peru is a democracy and therefore it has an unconditional respect for fundamental rights, among which the judiciary, and the institutions of the penal system guarantee that Joran van der Sloot's will get a fair trial. The principle of the assumption of innocence cannot be questioned until there is a solid and definite judgement."
The way in which Joran van der Sloot was put on display for the national and international press after his arrest provoked criticism in The Netherlands, suggesting that Van der Sloot "had already been condemned by the media."
Álvarez recognises that "there has been mass media attention. This happens frequently in the Peruvian legal system but we cannot, in any case, doubt the assumption of Joran van der Sloot's innocence. Neither can it be presented in a situation that affects his human dignity."
The organisation Prison Law, which supports prisoners worldwide, is one of the bodies that has raised concerns. Spokeswoman Rachel Imamkhan says he has little trust in the Peruvian justice system.
"My experience is that there is little chance of a fair trial in that country. Peru is a party to international treaties but in practice you see little of that."
What may help, according to Imamkhan is the international attention for the case
Evidence
Judge Morales Córdova will have at his disposal the results of psychological and psychiatric tests of Joran van der Sloot, as well as the autopsy report and expert reports in the preliminary investigation.
But Álvarez says there are still gaps:
"There are still many things to finish in the pre-trial investigation. One of the primary things is the reading of the contents of Joran van der Sloot's laptop. We do not know yet what information it contains. We also need to investigate the record of telephone calls that Stephany Flores received. We know that she received calls from Joran during the days before her death. There are people at the casino that were aware of Joran van der Sloot's presence: whether he won money and whether it is true if he entered the place with so much money."
The hard disc of Van der Sloot's computer could also contain information about the murder of US citizen Nathalee Holloway in Aruba in 2005. Van der Sloot remains a suspect in that unresolved case.
Aruba and the US have already asked Peru about the kind of information that the laptop contains.

Extradition

Lawyer Álvarez insists that Joran van der Sloot "will definitely not be extradited. Peru does not have an agreement with the Netherlands, which makes this scenario impossible. Van der Sloot will have to serve his sentence in Peru."
RNW sources who wish to remain anonymous say that Joran van der Sloot's mother is trying to manage her son's extradition to the Netherlands.

Kyron Horman: Desiree Young’s letter to her son



Posted on June 21st, 2010 by Valhall
Below is a very emotional letter written by Kyron’s biological mother to him. I pray her strength and her feelings that he can still come home to his family remain intact and prove to be true. Miracles can still happen. Envoking the names of Dugard, Hornbeck and so many other kidnapped children who later were found and returned to their loving families, let us not give up hope on Kyron.
Valhall.

Dear Kyron,
I am so soooooo sorry that this has happened. I am sorry that I was not there to protect you. I will never be able to forgive myself for being so many hours away when you needed me the most. I pray that you come back to me because I am afraid that I can’t live without you. I miss you every second of every day. I would give my life for yours, I just want you back safe. You must come back to us. We have so many things that we have planned this summer that you are going to love. Quinn loves you so much and wants you home too. All of the family is here and wants you to know just how much they miss you. Mayson is terribly sad without his best friend to play with and wants you home soon.
When you come home I will show you all of [the] things that everyone did for you, just to find you. There are literally hundreds of thousands of people that don’t know you and yet they pray for you every night. They know how much I miss you and need you and they just want to bring you home to me. There are so many wonderful people working on this case and they are going to find you soon.
I would give anything to run my fingers through your short hair again. I miss having you to hug anytime I want. Night time is always hard for me. I miss you so much and want you back here so that I can protect you from all of the horrible things in this world. I just can’t believe that you aren’t still with us. Your life has been really great and I know that it is [not] done yet. A long time ago you saved my life and now I am going to do the same for you. Our lives will never be the same after this. I love you very much!
Momma

PostSubject: Kyron's Mother's Open Letter   Tue Jun 22, 2010 12:47 am

Kyron's Mother's Open Letter






This is a "letter to Kryon" that was sent to NBC by his mother. At Orenonianlive.com, an investigative journalist, Michelle Cole, has been covering the case. As of this time, I haven't seen other statements yet released, nor has the information regarding the polygraphs been released (or even confirmed)

However, we do have a concerning statement made by law enforcement regarding the potential danger to the community posed by a predator.

In it, the law enforcement official downplays the likelihood that a dangerous kidnapper is out there. (I am seeking the actual quote)

I will not do a full analysis of this letter as it reveals much pain and guilt and statement analysis can be a sharp tool that can cut deeply; here, we have a mother's anquish, and what it reveals is heartbreaking. There are no signals of deception within the letter.

---------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Kyron,

I am so soooooo sorry that this has happened. I am sorry that I was not there to protect you. I will never be able to forgive myself for being so many hours away when you needed me the most.


This may appear like alibi building but is more likely linked to the overbearing guilt this mother feels regarding her son's life prior to his disappearance. She recognized that he had a need to be protected, which may have been an instinct that sat with her, in which, due to her life's circumstances, she was forced to ignore; having felt powerless to cause change. The extra words show sensitivity, with repetition suggesting acute anxiety

I pray that you come back to me


Here we see a break with the family responses, as a mother would, appropriately, reduce the situation to "me". She is his mother, and she is the one who has taken responsibility for his disappearance (see above) This is strong ownership

because I am afraid that I can’t live without you.

This is alarming and I hope that those around her will intervene in her life. This is strong desperation; no planning, no conniving, no convincing. The heartbreak may be more than she is able to bear. This statement is a warning to her family members to watch her carefully; perhaps under a doctor's care.

I miss you every second of every day. I would give my life for yours,

This statement is powerful, first person singular. The regret she has is also acute. This statement of trading her life should be believed.


I just want you back safe. You must come back to us. We have so many things that we have planned this summer that you are going to love. Quinn loves you so much and wants you home too. All of the family is here and wants you to know just how much they miss you. Mayson is terribly sad without his best friend to play with and wants you home soon.

Going into detail like this is a sign of veracity and walks a balance between denial and hope. She wants her son to know his value, so she expresses it in words that Kyron would understand. She has no need to explain it, as it is for his ears.

When you come home I

This is in stark contrast to the "family" statement about Father's Day. This is another indicator that the mother had nothing to do with Kyron's disappearance. Her suffering is unbearable. She will not yield hope, even if others do.

will show you all of things that everyone did for you, just to find you. There are literally hundreds of thousands of people that don’t know you and yet they pray for you every night. They know how much I miss you and need you and they just want to bring you home to me. There are so many wonderful people working on this case and they are going to find you soon.

The mother feels the weight of debt that she feels that SHE owes to those who have helped in the search. There is an absence of anger which tells me that she may have some suspicions, at this time, but she is unable to articulate them BECAUSE her hope is so powerful that if she feels anger, it would be as if she has given up hope that Kyron will be found alive and well. Her denial/hope remain powerful. In statement analysis, this is why we use the example of Susan Smith or Casey Anthony: an innocent mother who does NOT know what has happened will NEVER speak of a child in the past tense. Kyron's mother is the norm for innocent family members.

I would give anything to run my fingers through your short hair again.

This is a sensory description and is appropriately placed giving us another indication of veracity. It continues this way:

I miss having you to hug anytime I want. Night time is always hard for me. I miss you so much and want you back here so that I can protect you from all of the horrible things in this world.


This is an insight into her thinking. "all of the horrible things" is deliberately non specific. Kyron's mother CANNOT entertain a specific thought of "horrible thing" in her mind. She cannot. She cannot believe this as she is still in denial. This is a letter of an innocent mother.


I just can’t believe

She is to be believed, first person singular: she cannot believe this. She cannot believe he is not with "us", as now she recognizes that through life's circumstances, Kyron belongs not only to her, but to others. This may be the hint of suspicion that she beats back in the recesses of her mind.

that you aren’t still with us. Your life has been really great and I know that it is done yet.

This is the mother's guilt. Innocent mothers will, no matter what, blame themselves, as being ultimately responsible for the death of their child. There may be no sound reason to it, as it is a powerful instinct of responsiblity. She was not able to raise him early in life, and the guilt is unbearable: she blames herself as she does not feel that his life has been "great" but "really great". Extra words give us meaning, and it weakens the "great" in her mind. She likely knows of some difficulties he had with his step mother.


A long time ago you saved my life and now I am going to do the same for you. Our lives will never be the same after this. I love you very much!

Momma (Desiree Young)


-----------------------------------------------------------------

I won't fully analyze the letter, as students of Statement Analysis know that a painful profile emerges from the language here.

I will state that there are no indicators of deception or of withholding of information pertaining to Kyron's disappearance.

I will also say that this letter strongly shows that the mother was not involved in the disappearance of Kyron, yet takes ultimate responsibility for his life, and what happened to him. Her love is genuine and powerful.

I pray for his safe return, yet also hope that those closest to the mother will know how severe her cry is, and how she may not feel that she can live without him.

In Statement Analysis, we must not confuse guilt with nefarious guilt, or with a guilt that comes from criminal behavior. Sensitivity indicators are just that: sensitive, emotional points that warrant follow up questions in an Interview.

This letter reveals much guilt, and regret, for what was likely a very difficult life for Kyron. (which is revealed in the letter)

Rather, what is concerning is the other statements revealed by "family".

In particular, I am concerned with what has been attributed to the step mother with regards to a doctor's appointment.

Why would a teacher need to fill out forms for a doctor's appointment for 7 year old?

It may be that a stressed, fed up step mother is seeking prescription medication to control Kyron's behavior. The teacher's statement regarding the dating is going to be relevant.

The investigation continues and I will continue to view statements as they are released. I trust those who love Statement Analysis will understand why many of the words in the letter have been skipped over for analysis:

This mother's pain is far too much and I hope the analysis causes someone close to her to assist and carefully watch her

Kyron Horman: Why was Kyron not accounted for?



Posted on June 26th, 2010 by Valhall
I just put this in a comment on another thread, but I felt an urge to create an article for it – for no other reason than to keep little Kyron’s name at the top where it belongs. I want to revisit the lack of reporting to the family about Kyron’s absence from school on June 4th, the day he disappeared from the face of the Earth.
Before Roll Call
I think the main thing we should keep in mind as we discuss the issues surrounding Kyron’s absence and the lack of reporting back to the Horman family is that nothing we’ve heard so far concerning it has been confirmed except that he was marked absent. I believe Mr. Shelby, spokesman for the Portland school system is the one that confirmed Ms. Porter, Kyron’s second grade teacher, marked Kyron absent that morning.
According to what we’ve been told, it appears roll call for classes did not take place until 10:00 a.m. The school was open to family and students at 8:00 a.m. so they could tour the science fair together. Classes appear to have UNOFFICIALLY convened late at 9:00 a.m. so that the classes could be split into small groups of students led by chaperones to view the science fair. As a parent, I have to say I would be wondering why children were not accounted for at this time and prior to the science fair tour. And while I have found no official statement of exactly when roll call was made, the unofficial statements state roll call was not performed until 10:00 a.m. when the small groups completed touring the science fair.
Reports state that Kyron and Terri went to his classroom first and left his backpack and jacket in the room before touring the science fair. One account has the backpack and jacket left on top of his desk, another account has it hung in a locker/cubby space along the wall.
The Doctor’s Appointment
There are two versions of the alleged statement made by Terri Horman to Ms. Porter. Both unconfirmed by law enforcement.
1. Ms. Porter is claimed to have stated Terri Horman told her “in a crowded auditorium” on the morning of Friday June 4th that Kyron had a doctor’s appointment that day.
2. Jaymie Finster, friend of Terri Horman, states Terri told her that she told Ms. Porter of the doctor’s appointment when she was at the school on Thursday June 3rd and that the appointment was not until Friday June 11th. Jamie states Terri says she gave Ms. Porter paperwork associated with that doctor’s appointment. As I have stated in previous articles, the science fair projects appear to have been set up prior to 8:00 a.m. Friday morning, so Terri being there the day before would make sense if she needed to deliver the project early so that Kyron could get it set up. As I’ve also stated, the entire doctor’s appointment issue is a CONCRETE issue. In other words, there either was a doctor’s appointment or there wasn’t. It either was on June 11th, or it wasn’t. And there either is paperwork at that school or there isn’t. With the concrete, verifiable statements made by Terri Horman, her story is either true or false and can be confirmed as such…no wiggle room.
Roll Call
It is reported that at 10:00 a.m. the teachers took roll call for their classes. Ms. Porter is reported to have marked Kyron absent at this time. Now, here is where I have been confused for some time. The teacher’s responsibility is to account for the presence or absence of a child. The teacher’s responsibility during roll call is not to account for where that child is, only to account for if they are present. As I stated in prior comment, I’m 46 years old and I attended an extremely small school. The school system I was in had less that 700 kids for all grades K through 12th grade. The town had less than 2000 people total. Even in this small (ancient…lol) school system, the same procedure was in place as was in place for every school my two children attended whether they were in elementary school, middle school or high school, and no matter how small or big the school (some of which were huge metropolitan schools). The teacher is required to submit the absences to the central office of the school. Why? Because it is the central office’s responsibility to account for WHERE the child is.
So, if Ms. Porter marked Kyron absent at 10:00 a.m., why didn’t the Central office of Skyline Elementary call Kyron’s parents to confirm where he was? Please note that Mr. Shelby has stated some smoke and mirror nonsense about this not happening because Skyline wasn’t using the “automated call system”. Hogwash. Please keep in mind that Kyron came up missing on Skyline’s watch. Mr. Shelby has a conflict of interest. He is acting as spokesman for the school system. The same one that didn’t call Kyron’s parents when he was marked absent. That Mr. Shelby would use such a lame excuse is a flag to me. This is a transparent attempt to try to excuse why protocol was not followed. It also does not logically fit with other information we have been given, such as:

  • Skyline Elementary is a small school.
  • Skyline Elementary does not have a truancy problem.

The above two factoids make Mr. Shelby’s excuse for why Kyron’s parents weren’t contacted fall apart. A low number of children to account for, and a low absentee rate mean the central office didn’t even need an automated call system. It’s called picking up the phone and dialing the number. And it apparently did not happen.
So let’s look at this lack of reporting to the parents and see what logical explanations could lead to no phone call home (leaving behind the ludicrous excuse of no automated phone call):

  • Skyline Elementary School central office was negligent and simply didn’t take the time to report and verify Kyron’s absence, or
  • Ms. Porter did not report Kyron’s absence to the central office, or
  • Terri Horman told the central office Kyron was going to the doctor, or
  • Ms. Porter supplied paperwork from Terri Horman showing Kyron would be at the doctor that day, or
  • The central office only had the landline number to the Horman household AND there is no voicemail system on that number AND Terri wasn’t home so they were unable to reach a parent. This would require that the school not have a cell number for either Terri or Kaine (don’t know about you but I always gave my cell, once I had one, as my primary number to ensure they could get me no matter where I was), and didn’t have Kaine’s work number. That’s a lot of didn’ts to get in to make that make sense.

Those really are the only excuses for the central office not calling the Hormans to check on Kyron’s absence. We can rule out that the school DID attempt to contact the Horman residence because of the vacuous excuse Mr. Shelby gave…at least I can and still feel comfortable about it.

Father of Missing Oregon Boy Files for Divorce





Published June 29, 2010

| Associated Press


PORTLAND, Ore.-- The father of a 7-year-old Oregon boy missing for more than three weeks filed for divorce from the boy's stepmother on Monday, court showed.

The filing in Multnomah County Circuit Court listed Kaine Horman as the petitioner and Terri Moulton Horman as the respondent.

Police have said she's the last known person to have seen Kyron Horman alive before he disappeared from his Portland school on June 4. After a massive search, the Multnomah County sheriff's office recently described the case as a criminal investigation.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Lt. Mary Lindstrand said Monday night her office is "not talking about personal issues going on with the Hormans." She said Terri Horman is neither a person of interest nor a suspect.

Terri Horman's father, Larry Moulton, is staying at her house to give her support. He confirmed to KPTV that the couple's 18-month-old daughter Kiara was staying away from the [color=blue][color=blue !important][color:5b06=blue !important]house at a separate location.



"It's a very difficult time and I'm just here to support my daughter," Moulton said. "We'll leave it at that."

Earlier Monday, Kaine Horman as well as Kyron's mother Desiree Young and her husband Tony Young issued a statement through the sheriff's office that was signed only "Desiree, Tony and Kaine." It did not include Terri Horman's name.

In the statement, the three said they have been fully briefed on the investigation and support the sheriff's office.

"Any actions taken by the investigation, or by us, are based on the best interests of Kyron and Kiara and comply with the law," the statement added.

Police have said Terri Horman told them she took Kyron to school on the morning of June 4. The school was having a science fair before classes began, and Terri Horman took a photo of Kyron in front of his project.

She has told police that she last saw him walking down a hallway toward his second-grade classroom, wearing a "CSI" T-shirt and dark cargo pants.

The divorce filing was reported by The Oregonian and several other news organizations.

An Associated Press call to lawyer Laura Rackner, listed on the court petition as Kaine Horman's representative, was not immediately returned Monday night.

Kaine Horman and his former wife, Desiree Young, were interviewed by national TV morning shows and by local affiliates late last week. It was the first interview the missing boy's birth parents have granted.

PORTLAND, Ore. - The father of missing Skyline School second-grader Kyron Horman has filed for divorce from his wife Terri Moulton Horman and was granted a restraining order against her, a source confirmed to KATU News Monday night.

The source also confirmed that Kaine Horman has moved out of the family’s house.

The source said the restraining order is a physical restraining order that is meant to protect the couple’s 18-month-old daughter, Kiara.
Before KATU's source confirmed that Kaine had moved out and taken his daughter with him, KATU News had friends of Terri call her and ask her if it was true.

She told them it wasn’t true and that everything was fine. But the divorce papers weren’t served until 6 p.m.
Terri has not answered requests to talk.

Terri Horman is Kyron’s stepmother and was the last known person to see him when he disappeared Friday, June 4.

In a statement released Monday afternoon through the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office, Kyron’s biological mother, Desiree Young, his stepfather, Tony Young, and Kaine Horman, said they don’t want to say too much to the media for fear that it may damage the integrity of the investigation.

“We are in complete support of that investigation,” they wrote. “Any actions taken by the investigation, or by us, are based on the best interests of Kyron and Kiara and comply with the law. Beyond this, we have no comment on the matter.”

The statement was not signed by Terri.

In a phone interview, Desiree Young was asked if Terri knew they had written the statement. She said, “No, Terri didn’t know that we wrote this statement.” She wouldn’t comment as to why Terri wasn’t involved in the writing of it.

Meanwhile, Terri’s father, Larry Moulton, said in the latest issue of People magazine that investigators are taking a closer look at his daughter.

“She’s trying to be as cooperative as she can. … I guess they think she’s going to break,” he was quoted as saying.

He said his daughter, who is a former teacher, is “really good with kids.”

He also said investigators have questioned her for six hours at a time during several sessions, have given her two polygraphs and have twice taken her truck away.

Investigators have said the truck was removed from her home for repairs.

When the magazine’s interviewer asked Moulton if he thinks his daughter will be arrested, Moulton said, “I think it’s 50-50.”
Investigators have refused to comment about any possible suspects or persons of interest in the case, but they have said they believe it is an “isolated incident.”

Kyron Horman's family prepares in case an arrest is made of the missing boy's step-mother

Portland, Ore. - according to Willamette Weekly (WW), Kyron Horman's family prepares for the worst in case an arrest is made of the missing boy's step-mother. The second-grader who disappeared June 4th after his school science fair, has been the subject of an intense investigation. His step-mother, Terri Moulton Horman, was the last to see the 7-year-old boy as he walked down the school hallway to his classroom.
At 6 p.m. Monday, Terri Horman was served with divorce papers and a restraining order from Kyron's father, Kaine Horman. Although Kyron's step-mom hasn't been arrested in the missing boy's case, nor is an official suspect, it appears the rest of his family is preparing in the event that happens.
Kyron's step-mom at the center of plan by corrections staff
A source at the Multnomah County Corrections Division indicated that a plan had been in the process for about two weeks regarding Kyron's step-mom if she's arrested. WW learned from the source that corrections staff have been planning to immediately notify Corrections Health Director Gayle Burrow along with a mental health staff if an arrest is made on Terri.
The source confirms to WW the reason behind getting the mental health staff involved is so an evaluation can be performed on Kyron's step-mother and put her on suicide watch when if need be if she's in custody.
Terri Moulton Horman is not a suspect, this is just preparation
It's important to reiterate Kyron Horman's step-mother is not an official suspect and has not been arrested. However, Terri has been under intense scrutiny by authorities since the disappearance of her stepson. She has completed two polygraphs and has been questioned for many hours in the investigation.
Kyron Horman's family prepares for the worst with Terri Moulton Horman
It's not known what caused Kaine Horman to file divorce papers accompanied with a restraining order against his wife. It's unsettling to see a family, which has been portrayed in the media as close-knit, fall victim to a fractured state throughout the investigation.
Kyron's father and step-mom share an 18-month-old daughter, Kiara, and as of Monday, she and Kaine moved out, leaving Terri alone.
This case has a mystery that deepens with each day. Will Kyron's step-mother be arrested or is the Horman family so distraught, their bond is being challenged?

INSIDE STORY: Who Is Missing Oregon Boy's Stepmom Terri Horman?



By Eunice Oh

Wednesday June 30, 2010 01:00 PM EDT


Kyron Horman and Terri Moulton Horman



FBI; Landov





More than three weeks ago, Terri Moulton Horman had what many would call an ideal life.

Married with three kids – James, 16, Kiara, 18 months, and stepson Kyron, 7 – the stay-at-home mom frequently read aloud to her children and planned family outings and trips. And when she wasn't running a "loving" home, as friends and family describe, she volunteered at Kyron's Portland-area school.

But the former elementary school teacher now finds herself under intense scrutiny – heightened ever since police started focusing their attention on the 40-year-old, who has also taken two polygraph tests.

Though Kyron's father, Kaine Horman, initially stood by Terri, he has since moved out of the couple's home and filed for divorce.

Kaine cited irreconcilable differences in the court documents and is seeking sole custody of the couple's daughter, Kiara, and has also requested a restraining order, which was been sealed. The restraining order was filed after Kaine had been fully briefed by law enforcement on the ongoing investigation into his son's disappearance.

Last weekend, a 911 call was placed from the Horman's home at 5:46 p.m., regarding "threats" at the property," The Oregonian reports. Contents of the call have not been released.

Good with Kids

Those closest to Terri – who has not been named a suspect or person of interest in Kyron's June 4 disappearance – however, say the criticism may be uncalled for.

Her father, Larry Moulton, who recalls Horman making homemade costumes for her children on Halloween, tells PEOPLE: "She's really good with kids."

Terri has not spoken publicly about the incident, but those closest to her say the entire ordeal has taken a huge toll.

"She sends me text messages at random and says, 'I miss my son; I want my son back.' It's heartbreaking to talk to her,' " friend Jennifer Jones tells PEOPLE.

And while in some situations "the finger points back at stepmoms," says her dad, "she's trying to be as cooperative as she can."

Terri Moulton Horman remains silent as attention focuses on her


Published: Wednesday, June 30, 2010, 10:22 AM
Updated: Wednesday, June 30, 2010, 10:42 AM

The Oregonian


For weeks, Terri Moulton Horman has remained quiet as the search for her 7-year-old stepson, Kyron, continues. This morning she maintained her silence even as her husband has moved out and taken their young daughter with him.

News reporters are camped out at the Horman home this morning. An Oregonian reporter approached the Horman house and was turned away by Terri Horman's mother, Carol Moulton. Carol Moulton said her daughter was not home this morning and declined to say more.

Kaine Horman, who is living in an undisclosed location according to court documents, has not responded attempts by The Oregonian to speak with him. But a friend from high school who helped organize a vigil for Kyron earlier this month said he has spoken with him. Michael Cook declined to say how Horman was doing.

“It’s sad,” he said about the latest development in the case. “It’s very sad. I’m just a friend. I hope Kyron comes home."

Cook urged the public not to convict anyone. “I’m not jumping to any conclusions or passing any sort of judgment,” he said. “I don’t know what happened to Kyron and I won’t presume that someone is responsible because of how things might appear.”


Terri Horman was served with the restraining order and divorce papers about 6 p.m. Monday at her home, about 45 minutes after she denied to an Oregonian reporter who came to her door that her husband had moved out, and gave a thumbs up, saying, "Everything's good."


A restraining order is issued if the petitioner can show he or his child is in "imminent danger of further abuse" by the respondent, and respondent represents a "credible threat to the physical safety of petitioner or petitioner's child."

Kaine Horman's petition for a restraining order, which must offer an explanation of why he feared his wife was a threat to himself and their daughter, was sealed by Judge Keith Meisenheimer. It was sought after Kyron's dad, as well as his mom and stepdad, had been "fully briefed by law enforcement on the on-going criminal investigation."

A group of local news organizations, including The Oregonian, has requested that the restraining order be made public.

The restraining order says the stepmom can have no parenting time with her 19-month-old, and restricts her from possessing firearms.

Kyron was last seen at Skyline School on June 4.

Only POOF! Into thin air
June 29, 2010 ·

“Polly was taken inside of her bedroom. A little girl named Amber Dubois was taken out in front her school last February. Children can be, unfortunately, snatched anywhere.”
- Marc Klaas, on Larry King Live last night

In an odd twist, Kyron Horman’s father filed for divorce from his stepmother yesterday in Multnomah County Circuit Court. It includes a restraining order. The filing listed Kaine Horman as the petitioner and Terri Moulton Horman as the respondent. KATU also reported that, “The source said the restraining order is a physical restraining order that is meant to protect the couple’s 18-month-old daughter, Kiara.”
Read the Horman divorce papers
Kyron’s father, biological mother and stepfather issued a statement yesterday. Noticeably absent was his stepmother’s signature:
“We have been fully briefed by law enforcement on the on-going criminal investigation. We are in complete support of that investigation. We have asked the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office to facilitate releasing this statement for us due to their access to the media/flash news.
We understand that we have free access to the media but are limiting statements to the media to keep the integrity of the investigation intact.
Any actions taken by the investigation, or by us, are based on the best interests of Kyron and Kiara and comply with the law. Beyond this, we have no comment on the matter.
Desiree, Tony and Kaine”
Since Kyron disappeared from his school on June 4, police have said that Terri is the last known person to see him alive. After a massive search turned up nothing, the Multnomah County sheriff’s office labelled the case a criminal investigation.
Last night, Sheriff’s spokeswoman Lt. Mary Lindstrand said her office is “not talking about personal issues going on with the Hormans.” In other words, the divorce papers mean nothing to them. Although speculation has mounted in recent weeks that Kyron’s stepmother might know more about his disappearance than she had initially let on, Lindstrand said Terri Horman is neither a person of interest, nor a suspect.
Meanwhile, her father is staying at her house to lend a hand and to give her much needed support.
Former Multnomah County Deputy District Attorney Jim McIntyre had a few things to say about the investigation.
“The probabilities are that it’s somebody close in – and when I say that I don’t mean immediate family members, I mean that it’s somebody that may or may not know Kyron or know the routine. It’s usually someone closer in but closer in can include a retail store clerk that sees him all the time that decided to do something,” McIntyre stated. He said that maintaining a lead on the right suspect is a key ingredient. “You don’t want to put the investigators off on the track that could be an erroneous track because then the individual who actually committed the offense is gaining time.”
McIntyre also warned about the problems associated with joining public opinion. “Jumping on the bandwagon of who the public thinks did it is often a huge mistake,” he said. Pointing fingers at the family usually causes them to shut down.
“It’s easy for family members to begin to believe that they’ve become targets when perhaps they’re really just trying to eliminate [the family] and they’re can be a natural friction that can develop and you saw that historically in the JonBenet case which still remains unsolved and that case slipped sideways between law enforcement and the family.”
Terri Horman’s white truck being impounded twice and the recent questionnaire sent out, McIntyre concluded, ”You have to go back to who is the last person who was with Kyron, who was the last person to see Kyron. What was Kyron’s regular schedule and where would he have been. What was the likelihood of people having contact with him.”
On Larry King Live last night, Marc Klaas of the Klaas Kids Foundation said, “As I understand it, he does. Let me clarify a couple things. First of all, it’s a very rural community. It’s a rural school. There are about 300 people at the school. What happened that day, according to her own words, as she was walking the little boy to his class and was very close to the class when the bell rang at 8:45 a.m. She then told him – he told her, mom, excuse me, I’m going the classroom now. She said she waved to him and that was the last time she saw the little boy.
“The problem with that statement is that if she was walking with him, she would have kissed him or rubbed his head or something. Waving doesn’t make a lot of sense if you’re close to the classroom. So she then turned and went away. One of two things happened, I believe. Number one, she is involved. That’s where the numbers take you. That’s where the facts as we know them take you. The second possibility is a very high risk snatch by a local pedophile.”
The problem with Terri’s story is the relative lack of time. If she was walking Kyron to his classroom, he would have been merely seconds away from the door. Had she turned around to leave, how much time would there have been for someone to grab him and run out of the building? Why didn’t anyone see a perpetrator? Klaas added, “And I think the best thing to yell is you’re not my mom, you’re not my dad. Under no circumstances, if a child has any kind an option, you never, ever go with the bad man.”
Although the sheriff’s office states that Terri Moulton Horman is not even a person of interest, how could someone enter a school undetected and, in a matter of seconds and perfect timing, leave with a young child in tow? This is a far cry from the 31 days Casey claimed, but it becomes more believable if we factor in the entire school day. Remember, he wasn’t reported missing until he failed to get off the afternoon bus.

Kyron Horman Missing and Endangered Sources: Terri Horman Arrest Is Imminent

Posted by Blink | Kaine Horman, Kyron Horman, Missing Child, Missing and Endangered, Terri Horman |

Tuesday 29 June 2010 10:31 pm


Portland, OR– Late this evening, blinkoncrime.com has learned from a source close to Terri Horman that she expects to be arrested at anytime on possible charges related to endangering the welfare of a child.

It is not known if those charges are related to the disappearance of her 7 year old step-son Kyron Horman, or her daughter, Kiara Horman, 18 months.
Following the filing of the and restraining order by Kaine Horman, Terri’s estranged husband and Kyron and Kiara’s Father, the restraining order was subsequently sealed by the court on Monday.
However, under Oregon law, for primary custody to be awarded without mutual agreement in this phase, an emergency ex-parte order must be filed. That requires a fairly heavy burden in the immediate threat area.

This is all adding up to a very sad conclusion for me, folks.
First, we’ve got The Family Statement (minus Terri) released Monday:
“We have been fully briefed by law enforcement on the on-going criminal investigation.
We are in complete support of that investigation. We have asked the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office to facilitate releasing this statement for us due to their access to the media/flash news.
We understand that we have free access to the media but are limiting statements to the media to keep the integrity of the investigation intact.
Any actions taken by the investigation, or by us, are based on the best interests of Kyron and Kiara and comply with the law. Beyond this, we have no comment on the matter.”
Got to say… I’ve had a baaaaad feeling ever since the term “criminal investigation” was used following the initial groundswell of search efforts. To me, that says, while short a body, it has been determined a crime was committed and, as such, resources were shifted from recovery/rescue to collecting evidence for beyond-a-reasonable-doubt identification of the suspected offender and his/her eventual prosecution/conviction for the crime.
In other (read: fewer) words, the emphasis is on criminal responsibility now. That likely means there is reason to believe Kyron is no longer expected to be found alive, and it’s time to enforce the law against the person(s) responsible for his death - even if, in Terri’s case, she only suspected of being guilty of endangering his welfare. (Though, as opposed to many astute thinkers here, I believe she - and she alone - is directly behind his death.)
As far as the seemingly dragged-out nature of the case, there is, of course, something to be said for the old trope: A watched pot never boils.
But, more to the reality of the situation, detectives assigned to this investigation have to abide by the consitutionally guaranteed rights of the accused throughout its course - that’s why we have not seen an arrest yet, imo. I think (as B has noted repeatedly) they are building a case here that can be prosecuted based on someone’s *intent* to do harm. (And the specific question in this instance is: Who had the means, will and way to intentionally harm little Kyron?)
I also agree with B and other posters on this thread that the procedurals in the case - and its seeming veil of secrecy - totally reflect the Susan Smith situation: i.e., *dual* investigations, with one out in the open and the other hush-hush until the “shocking” arrest was made.
To wit, there was the “public” investigation in the wake of a desperate, sobbing mother’s police report and pleading press conference - here, LE searched for Smith’s allegedly “carjacked” young boys and the alleged kidnapper; the other was “secret,” wherein Smith herself was the focus. While these separate probes were being conducted, LE couldn’t be truly certain which one would be successful, but ultimately they were able to get a confession out of Smith by confronting her with the evidence uncovered during their under-the-radar investigation.
I’s with B - I think we’re about to see that happen here.
This was further underscored on June 26 by Kaine getting Kiara, a powerhouse family attorney, and the F outta Dodge. The fact that he was able to successfully obtain emergency legal custody (without Terri present at the hearing) through Oregon’s FAPA law shows he was able to show the judge that Terri’s ability to access him and Kiara put his child in immediate physical danger.

5 years ago I took care of Kyron at a daycare (he was ages 2-3).
I saw his step-mom and talked with her at each drop off. She was very kind, very motherly.
For the past few weeks I kept thinking…they look really familiar, then I realized I knew her during her body building time. She was dedicated to that new hobby and seemed to enjoy it.
Her older son was very well behaved, and was loved by Kyron-I don’t recall feeling any concern at all. He helped read to Kyron on the rough drop off days. Not one thing in my mind raises a red flag about her behavior then to what is going on now.
But, that is what’s scary- it’s usually someone you just would never have suspected. It’s heart breaking to think about.
As for the dad’s job, my husband works at Intel and it’s a job where you might have manditory meetings all morning but can work from home as well. Depends on exactly what he did. Most engineers are flexible and Intel wants to enable you to work from home if you cannot come into the office for whatever reason. His being home at ‘odd’ times to everyone else could have just been a thing that even our family is used to.
No speculation there. It’s interesting reading everyone’s comments. I’m more of ‘innocent until proven guilty’ not visa versa, but this case is so strange that that’s hard to apply- even having once known this family.

Skyline Parent– Email From Today
Dear Parent of Skyline School:
We are sending this follow up email because we do not believe that we have received a response from you or your child regarding your and / or their observations on June 4, 2010 at Skyline School. Sometimes we have received partial responses from families, and we just want to make sure that we have all the responses from everyone in your family who was present that day.
We realize it is possible that the reason we haven’t received a response from you could be as simple as the fact that you were not there that day.
At this point, it would be helpful for us to know that as well. A simple reply to this email with your name and the information that you were NOT present can assist us in taking you off of our list requiring follow up.
If you or your child WERE at Skyline on June 4, and you haven’t yet responded, please take a moment now to do so. The questionnaire is attached for your convenience. You can either print it, fill it out, scan and send back OR simply respond in the body of an email. Please remember to include your full name as well as your child’s (or children’s).
If we do not receive a response, law enforcement will be contacting you personally later this week. A quick response saves resources, and is much appreciated.
Thank you.

This Just In…
And, as B would say: “Uh boy.”
According to Terri’s hopelessly “helpful” backwoods publicist, “Terri Moulton Horman was ‘blindsided’ by the divorce papers, according to a close friend.
“A friend of Terri who wished to remain anonymous, told KOIN Local 6 Kyron Horman’s step-mother was caught off guard when she was served divorce papers as well as a restraining order from her husband and Kyron’s father, Kaine Horman.
‘Terri didn’t know she was going to be hit with divorce papers or a restraining order,’ the friend said”

(http://www.koinlocal6.com/content/news/topstories/story/Terri-Horman-may-talk-to-the-media/Dz4uMChK60KCWjy3W5FG4Q.cspx)
Oooookay. When paired with the gist pieces of the Family Statement (strategically released the day before the divorce “bombshell” got dropped):
“We have been fully briefed by law enforcement on the on-going criminal investigation. …Any actions taken… by us, are based on the best interests of Kyron and Kiara and comply with the law. …”
This can only add up to one conclusion, the way I see it. Kaine, Desiree and Tony were advised by the Sheriff’s Office last week on Terri’s impending arrest. (And Kaine was likely further advised: Lawyer up. Leave. File. Wait.)

Kyron Horman Missing Case Latest News - Dogs ad Divorce



Kyron Horman is still missing, and his case continues. The Latest news places dogs as being used in the search for him, and a divorce between Terri Moulton Horman and Kaine Horman. Deputies are using border collies to try to find Kyron Horman. These are not cadaver dogs, rather dogs used to find missing persons.

In addition, a strange twist of events brings Kaine Horman to divorce Terri. She is the stepmother of the missing boy and the last one to have seen him alive. Kaine is seeking sole custody of the couple's 19 month old daughter.

This makes a strange case even stranger.

An Amber Alert was never issued for Kyron, and authorities haven't mentioned that they think he was abducted. Many speculate that the authorities know more than they let on but don't want to jeopardize the case.

The search efforts are focusing on Sauvie Island. The area surrounding Kyron's father's home and many areas around the school, including a river have been searched.

The divorce filing cites "irreconcilable differences." Prior to the divorce filings, the couple showed a united front. Now, Kaine has a separate home with the couples' daughter Kiara. Even stranger is an order of protection filed by Kaine and also an order that Terri Horman must stay away from firearms.

Desiree Young and her husband remain united with Kaine Horman. Desiree is Kyron's birth mother. Kaine and Terri had custody of the seven year old. Desiree has been extremely distraught during this whole ordeal, as would be expected from a mother in this situation.

Many people think that in some way the stepmother had something to do with the boy's disappearance. The authorities have not named her as a person of interest. Although the divorce does look suspicious, it could just be that Kaine can't live with the fact that his boy is missing and she's the last one to have seen him and she doesn't have the information to help him be found.

There's still a lot of hope that the young boy will be found alive. The case is extremely strange and leaves many people scratching their heads. Hopefully, the young boy will be found alive and well.

PostSubject: Kyron Horman's Family Boots WW and The Oregonian from Bizarre News Event   Thu Jul 01, 2010 8:36 pm

Kyron Horman’s Family Boots WW and The Oregonian from Bizarre News Event
1:04 PM July 1st, 2010 by James Pitkin


The saga of missing 7-year-old Kyron Horman got a little more bizarre today at a news conference held this morning by the boy’s family.
The event at Brooks Hill Historic Church was arranged on Wednesday by Kyron’s father Kaine Horman, biological mother Desiree Young and her husband, Medford Police Detective Tony Young.
Absent was Terri Moulton Horman, the stepmom investigators say was the last person known to have seen Kyron before his June 4 disappearance. Kaine Horman filed for divorce and a restraining order against her earlier this week. And she’s since hired star criminal defense attorney Stephen Houze.
Today, Kaine Horman and the Youngs sat at the head of a table in a room filled with more than two dozen national and local reporters for print, TV and radio. As the meeting began at 10 a.m., Kaine Horman started out by explaining “the agenda.” This wasn’t going to be a typical press conference.
Horman said the family’s goal was to make “the story” about Kyron. With news of the divorce and investigators homing in on the stepmom, media coverage (including in WW) has increasingly focused on Kyron’s troubled family.
First came Horman’s “ground rules,” as he described them. No cameras. No recordings. Everything was off the record and couldn’t be reported, unless agreed otherwise. Horman made everyone in the room agree to these rules before proceeding. And so this roomful of reporters consented, in essence, not to be reporters.
Horman then laid out how the meeting would go. They would take questions, make some phone calls (presumably to investigators, to find out what they could say in their answers), then return and make an on-the-record statement. But first, Horman wanted all the reporters he didn’t know to introduce themselves.
KEX radio, KATU, The Portland Tribune and “Inside Edition” all got the nod from Horman. But then came Shane Kavanaugh and Bryan Denson of The Oregonian.
Horman said the family didn’t like The Oregonian’s coverage and wanted them to leave. Horman said the daily had failed to be a “team player.”
“This is a team, and if we’re not going to play as a team, there’s no point in being here,” Horman said. “This is about Kyron.”
Denson objected, saying he’s new to the story and after 28 years in journalism he’s “a pretty good reporter.” But there was no arguing. The family wanted The O gone, and a woman who said she’s a manager at the church escorted them out. The biggest newspaper in the state had been eighty-sixed.
I introduced myself and said I’m with Willamette Week. Horman said the family has the same problem with WW. I agreed to leave. And so the paper with the second-biggest circulation in Oregon was also kicked out.
As far as I was concerned, after getting kicked out all deals were off. I wasn’t going to keep the meeting off the record.
According to a reporter who stayed, the family went on to lay out more “ground rules” for the future. They said they’d hold these “news conferences” (if you can call them that) twice a week, on Mondays and Thursdays, as time allows. They would make prepared statements, answer some questions submitted in writing and may also do occasional interviews.
“They want us to cover Kyron, and they’re not going to get neck-deep in gossip and rumors,” the reporter said.
ABC News convinced the family to make an on-the-record statement in front of one camera, with the tape available as pool footage for other reporters. After more than an hour inside the church, the reporters were sent outside while the family stayed in to prepare a statement.
The reporter at the scene said The Oregonian had somehow gotten back on the family’s good side and was among those waiting outside to hear the prepared statement.
At shortly after 12:30, the family emerged from the church and Desiree Young gave a brief statement in which she implored Terri Moulton Horman to cooperate with investigators. She also said the family believes Kyron is still alive. Check out the video with KATU’s coverage here.

PostSubject: More Notes from the Strange Press Conference with Kyron Horman's Family   Thu Jul 01, 2010 9:38 pm

More Notes from the Strange Press Conference with Kyron Horman’s Family

4:14 PM July 1st, 2010 by James Pitkin


As we’ve already reported, WW was kicked out of this morning’s news conference by the family of missing 7-year-old Kyron Horman.
But our reporter friends have continued to fill us in on what we missed. After mother Desiree Young gave a tearful statement, she answered some questions submitted by the media.
Here are one reporter’s notes from the question-and-answer session:

They said they were unable to answer any questions about Terri because the investigation was ongoing.
Their employers have been flexible and supportive.
They spend their days doing things surrounding Kyron and whatever investigators need that day.
They lean on each other and use Kyron as their strength. They pray for resolution and strength each day.
Not knowing where Kyron is is the most difficult part for them.
Kaine said they miss Kyron’s toothless smile, belly laugh and him just being around.
Kyron has a v-shaped strawberry birthmark in the middle of his forehead. when he’s upset or crying it comes out more.
Kyron loves sushi and mac and cheese.
He is allergic to bees like his mom.
When Kyron comes home they joked and said they’re not letting him leave the house but also said they had vacations planned, camping and fishing. They will focus on making him happy every day.
They would like the community to continue what they’ve been doing. Keep Kyron’s face out there and look on their properties for him.
The family is helping with the case everyday by working with investigators and the media to make sure his face stays out there. They’re handing out fliers, getting t-shirts out there. Desiree said it is her goal for everyone any where in the world to know what Kyron looks like.
They have been fully briefed by police and they are optimistic.
They are fully confident in the investigation and investigators who are doing everything they can to find Kyron.
Scheduling:
Next week they will meet with media at 10am on Tuesday since Monday is a holiday

On Thursday they will do interviews starting at 4pm but nothing live. Everything taped as has to be held for air until Friday because Kyron went missing on a Friday.
