“Dogs searching a landfill have turned up evidence in the case of Hailey Dunn, the 13-year-old West Texas girl reported missing in late December, a spokesman for the investigation told The Associated Press on Tuesday.
Colorado City Manager Pete Kampfer declined to elaborate about what had been found during a recent search of the landfill in Abilene, about 70 miles east of Colorado City, where Hailey Dunn was reported missing.
“It’s a sensitive part of the investigation,” Kampfer said. “The cadaver dogs did hit on items at the landfill.”
Police affidavits released this week offer a few details, but suggest the teen’s mother and her live-in boyfriend lied and gave contradictory statements to investigators. Both have strongly denied involvement in Hailey’s disappearance and claimed they were misquoted by police.”
