9.00pm Hailey Dunn’s brother, David Dunn, leaves the residence  to spend the night with a friend.   David says when he left the residence, Hailey was playing a video game in the living room of the residence.  Based on the progress on the game and Hailey’s skill level of the game, it is estimated that Hailey played the game until around 12pm that night.

December 27, 2010

6.00am Shawn Adkins arrives at work and quits his job.  According to his employer, WSI in Snyder, Adkins arrived at work around 6am, walked into the break room, purchased a Dr Pepper from the vending machine, look at the supervisor without saying a word, then left the premises.

Adkins however, told others he got fired from his job.  His employers denied that they fired him.

6.10am Adkins left his place of employment (Snyder).

6.20am Billie Dunn leaves the residence to go to work in Snyder, Texas.

Adkins says he then drove to his mother’s house in Big Springs, Texas, but according to the cell phone pings, he was in the Colorado City area, the same area where Hailey was reported missing.  Eleven phone calls are captured between 9.38am-2.40pm.

Cell phone towers indicate that:

6.35 – 6.56am Adkins was in the area of Colorado City, Texas.

9.38am – 2.40pm, Adkins was in the area of Big Spring, Texas.

NOTE: According to Verizon Cellular Tower records a person at Chestnut would utilise or ping Tower 724 on the northern coverage area transmitter when using a Verizon  cell phone, which is the same tower that Adkins was using from 6.35am until 6.56am.  (Hailey was alone at the residence during this time).

In other words: 

*** According to Shawn, he went from Colorado City to Snyder to Big Springs.

*** According to the Evidence, he went from Colorado City to Snyder to Colorado City.

4.00pm, David Dunn returns home from school and pounded on the door for 5 minutes, and nobody would let him in.   David gained access to the residence through a window.  He observed Shawn standing in the hallway with a “deer in the headlights” look.

Roger Ostrander (uncle of Hailey) and Adkins were discussing the disappearance of Hailey.  Roger stated that he could not believe anybody would hurt a 13 year old little girl, to which Adkins replied “yah, it’s like killing a deer.”

Del Ostrander indicated that Adkins talked often about how he kills deer and cuts them up with a chainsaw.  He also says that Adkins is obsessed with horror / slasher movies, watches them daily, he also collects movie memorabilia connected with the Halloween movie series.

6.19pm Billie Dunn made two cash withdrawals from an ATM in Snyder, Scurry County, Texas.  First $60 then $80.  The money was to purchase illegal narcotics from a person in Scurry County.   These narcotics were for Adkins and Billie.  (this info was confirmed by Billie).

According to Billie, Adkins tells her that Hailey left the residence in the afternoon to go to her father’s residence then to go to her friend’s house, for a slumber party.
