ABC News– “The Texas girl missing for nearly three weeks, was scared of her mother’s boyfriend Shawn Adkins, and said he would stand in the doorway of her bedroom at night watching her. “Hailey did not like him. She was afraid of him and she didn’t want him there,” Hailey’s paternal grandmother, Connie Jones, told ABCNews.com today.”
“Hailey told her grandmother that Adkins would pace around the house at night, talking on his cell phone in the bathroom and peering into her bedroom. “She had told me on a couple of occasions that…he walked around at night and she said that she could see his shadow standing at her door. She said, ‘Nana, he scared me. I’m afraid he’s going to come in there,'” Jones said.
Hailey’s grandmother said she prays that Dunn was not involved in Hailey’s disappearance.”
“Ever since this has happened, he’s been my top priority as a suspect. I’ve just always had an eerie feeling about him…just a gut feeling that he’s not a trustworthy person,” Jones said.
“Adkins’ car, a white Chevrolet Lumina, and cell phone have been seized. The mother’s cell phone has also been seized and her home has been searched.
Records show that police were called to Dunn’s home in February of last year after Adkins threatened to hurt Billie and Hailey Dunn.
In their bedroom were hundreds of pages printed from news web sites including ABC News about “mass murderers, serial killers, sexual sadist, murders of family members,” according to the affidavit.”
“Adkins told investigators that he drove straight to his mother’s home in Big Spring, Texas. Cell phone records show Adkins making calls from Dunn’s home between 6:35 a.m. until 6:56 a.m., the court papers state.
Dunn left for work as a receptionist at a hospital at 6:20 a.m.
“According to all reports, Hailey Dunn would have been alone in the residence during this time period,” the affidavit said.”
