Policy: Due to the similarities in stories, I will exhaust every avenue, every lead and turn over every rock that I come across, or that others come across. The ultimate goal is to find out what happened to Hailey, but my role in this is to find out what people know, who they know, etc. No sacred cows in this process. Don’t care who it is, who they’re related to, what status they serve in the community, the truth is the truth, and we will seek it.

HaileyDunn.org is a domain name pointed to a Web page on The Ellis County Observer that seeks to centralize information, articles and other pertinent information regarding a child pornography ring in West Texas, a child-trafficking network and other elements that may contribute to the cause and stifling of an/the investigation into Hailey’s disappearance. As this is a project of The Ellis County Observer and Freedom of the Press Group, there are tools and features on The ECO that may offend some people.

Hailey Dunn
Missing Since: Dec. 27, 2010

Amber Hagerman was 9-years-old when she was abducted on Jan. 13, 1996. Her still-unsolved* mystery is where we get the nationwide “Amber Alert” system. I knew for the past eight years that I was supposed to bust open, expose and break a “big” child pornography ring. I told people this out loud over a span of eight years. It finally came to fruition on Feb. 8 (my 30th birthday) at the Courtyard Apartments on North Clay Street in Ennis, Texas. It wasn’t just a child porn ring, but a network, a syndicate, a from-the-biblical-Molech type of operation that has reached global cities, countries and U.S. states (specifically Prescott Valley, Arizona), and it has pushed out into the open — I believe — the suspect who abducted and murdered little Amber. My proof? http://www.elliscountyobserver.com/amber-hagerman/ (hence why I put an asterisk near “unsolved.”)

Hailey Dunn, 13, was abducted in December 2010 from Colorado City, Texas, near Abilene, and some eerie links between the child pornography bust from Ellis County on Feb. 8 has produced evidence that the players here lived near Colorado City at one time. Source: http://www.elliscountyobserver.com/2011/07/15/child-pornography-ring-updates-more-bill-n-fry-links-to-west-texas/. Notice that the home in Mabank (Henderson County) that some of the child-abuse occurred in/at was owned by Randy Anderson, who also lived in Abilene at one time. Coincidence? Read below…

Several people who have independently hunted this case have supplied The Ellis County Observer and our sister site, The Odessa Observer, with leads and other information. We present this material as an alternative to what may not be printed or published, for whatever reason, in other media outlets.

Excerpt from an independent blog:

Fascination with violence
Investigators found a box of hundreds of pages printed off the internet about brutal crimes in the bedroom of Adkins and Billie Dunn.  The stories were about mass murders, serial killers, sexual sadism, and murders of family members.  Billie said she had printed them at work and brought them home for Adkins.  The topics were a hobby, she said.

A family member told investigators he was speaking to Adkins and said he couldn’t believe anyone would hurt a little girl, and Adkins replied, “Yeah, it’s like killing a deer.”

Witnesses said Adkins often talked about killing deer and cutting them up with chainsaws, and that he was obsessed with horror and slasher movies and watches them daily.

Ellis County’s most corrupt judge (and former DA) Joe F. Grubbs is originally from Colorado City, according to the book Born Bad, a true-story murder case that pitted Ennis resident Jason Massey and his Satanic-fueled writings and desires with the mutilation and murder of a 13-year-old girl: http://www.elliscountyobserver.com/2011/08/07/hailey-dunn-update-colorado-city-texas-gets-new-police-chief-again/

Clint Dunn’s fiance’s mother says she’s taking legal action after she said slanderous comments were posted about her online.

Monday June 13

Law enforcement officials have ruled out the possibility that Hailey Dunn’s father had anything to do with her disappearance.

Mitchell County Sheriff Patrick Toombs said both Clint Dunn and his fiance Naomi Stewart took Polygraph tests.

Okay, that’s enough for now. I’m a member of a small group. We have monitored this since the beginning and heard every rumor concerning this case. The info given to you by Russel Turner before the first radio show, compiled by him, Erica, Lisa Hale, etc…was somehow “messed up”, tainted by the time it got in your hands. You were right in pursuing the conflict of interest angle regarding the CC Police investigator. But Danny Rivera was never reported to have been seen with Hailey. Somebody got their rumors mixed up and that was “added in” before it got to you.

In the future, I’ll send you some topics/questions, in order of importance, that need resolving immediately. We do not want credit. We work behind the scenes because two of us have received threats since this all began. We have withdrawn from offering too many opinions of this case publicly.

Your biggest problem as I see it, is that you need time to get up to speed on the most basic aspects of this case. Antagonizing and bickering with the people on Facebook is a waste of time. They’re not pissed at you for your “techniques”. They’re pissed because you had two days to prepare for last night’s show and you still don’t know who’s in Hailey’s immediate family. I’m not here to judge. I’ve screamed for someone who’s not afraid to ask the tough questions. Most of these people have “adopted” Hailey as their own, so to speak. This is very personal for them, not simply a STORY.

Russel is a nice enough guy, and Roll Call was a good idea, but he only has about a month head start on you. Regardless, whoever your “sources” are should have helped you prepare better, and warned you about the fervor you would likely experience. There are some 35 Facebook pages dedicated to Hailey Dunn, and countless “private” groups. If you only count the 5 or 6 most popular ones there are well over 12,000 members, and new ones every day.

I don’t have the time or patience to try to explain all the sub-plots and side-shows surrounding this case. The Hope For Hailey split from the Search Center is still a fresh wound, and a lot of locals say Patricia Trichel was at least partly responsible for that. I have no opinion on her at this time. But if you want to alienate your audience, giving Patricia any more air-time right away is a good place to start. The best thing to come out of that was, you got Clint on the phone. You decide on your “guests” though.

This is a weird case, Joey. Think about this…There’s not one piece of physical evidence pointing to an abduction or harm done to Hailey Dunn. Not one drop of blood evidence. No DNA. No hair or fibers. No credible sightings of her after 9:00 pm on December 26th. It’s like the world swallowed her up.

You’re fighting an uphill battle. I think it was Erica that tried to warn you that things are different in West Texas. The good ol’ boy network is in place and it’s thick. You asked for help. If you want to take advantage of this, there’s A LOT more. This stuff was easy…you could have found all of this on your own.

We’re here solely to find out what happened to Hailey Dunn. If you uncover trafficking rings or CP distribution or public corruption, all the better. Take care and good luck.
