Authorities announced on Friday that remains of missing 13-year-old cheerleader, Hailey Dunn, was found in a remote area west of Texas. According to People online, her remains were found near Lake J.B. Thomas in Scurry County in March after her mother reported two months before. Up till the case has been cold but the Texas Rangers have confirmed that the missing remains found this time were of Hailey Dunn’s and reported it to her mother. Her body was found 20 miles northwest of Colorado City. It was reported that her mother’s boyfriend was that last one to see Dunn, who said that Hailey told him that she was going to visit her dad and then stay the night at her friends. That was the last anyone ever saw of her and Dunn didn’t go to either place. Dunn’s mother and boyfriend have denied involvement with the missing girl.
To me this story sounds like a case of to catch a predator! Hailey was a 13-year-old girl who knew how to use a computer and was able to get to places by herself, wouldn’t surprise me if this story ending up reporting that she was chatting with a man online and went to meet up with him which slowly led to her death. In this day and age it easier and easier for people to kidnap others, especially children. Parents need to make sure that they are keeping track of their children and their where abouts. The Texas Rangers and police officers are in need to find this killer because until they are found children are not going to be safe and parents are going to be uneasy about their community.
