Kyron Horman: Why Haven't the Parents Spoken Out?

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

We can't stop thinking about missing second grader Kyron Horman. He's been missing for seven days. But why haven't his parents spoken out yet?

Kyron's parents have not gone on camera to make a public plea for their son. C. W. Jensen, a retired Portland, Ore., police detective, said that's not unheard of -- but it's not the norm, either. "Generally, parents in cases like this are incredibly distraught," he told KATU. "They're almost just dysfunctional."

Kyron's stepmom has gotten criticism for posting trivial messages on Facebook (such as, "Hitting the gym tomorrow") since her stepson has gone missing. She didn't change her profile pic to one of Kyron for six whole days -- even though her husband and countless friends and concerned strangers all did.

Jensen said that the stepmom's Facebook activity -- especially the stuff about "hitting the gym" -- is unusual. "What I know from being an investigator and dealing with parents in tragic situations like this -- homicides, kidnappings, stuff like that -- they just really couldn't much function other than to sit and wait for us to call," he told KATU.

What's wrong with this picture?

I have been following this case closely since it happened. I think it bothers me so much because I have a son the same age, and I know how sweet and naive children are at this age. Here is what I think happened and why I think it:

1. Kyron had ADHD, and Step-Mom was dreading the school year ending and having him around 24/7. (dr. Appt, and teacher had to fill out paperwork. Usually done so child can receive meds.)
2. Step mom had a little bit of post partum and was feeling fat/ugly/undesirable after having the baby. Hubby wasn’t paying as much attention to her, so she sent older son to live with his dad, but biomom couldn’t take Kyron for health reasons. (stepmom was a weightlifter before, and she had to stop after becoming preg with daughter.)
3. Stepmom helped the kyron with his project, but he acted up and wouldn’t cooperate with her, and that was the final straw. She began planning how to get rid of him, but needed an alabi, so she took him to school and made sure she got a pic of him with the project to put on fb, and she made sure a couple of adults saw her, but she told the teacher he had a dr appt. (the pic of his project looks like an adult did it, and she told the teacher about the dr a ppt in a crowded room where it was hard to hear.
4.she did something to Kyron, then hid his body, ran home, cleaned up, picked up the baby, posted things on fb, and waited for bus time to call. (pings on cell phone from strange area, baby at babysitter, white truck seen in weird area.)
5. Something about the book her grandpa wrote about a red squirrel holds clues, but I haven’t figured out what they are. Does anyone else know about the book? I know her nickname is red squirrel. I’m still trying to put the rest together. Does anyone else have theories?

You people are evil vultures who should have your tubes forcibly tied to prevent you from breeding further. What kind of “mom” would so carelessly accuse another mother of such a horrible crime? Clearly, as a father, I couldn’t possibly understand the depths of your motherly wisdom.

FYI: Police ALWAYS focus on family members first. You obviously watch enough TV to know that.

I think that book the granfather R neil Horman wrote. does show some clues. in it one of the kids says dont get lost to another. in the woods of washington. very odd. maybe this book could be the answer to the case. its only my opinion.the LE should check out the realtives and their property. no stones unturned. it wouldnt hurt anything to check the theory out.

After a week of fashion shows at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, there are few trends that stand out, among them: pale tones and sexy Christian Louboutin Shoes.
These open-toed booties from Nicole Miller’s Spring 2011 collection are a good example of spring’s pale palette.
After four seasons of subdued shopping by luxury buyers, looks for spring were dominated by white, nude and other neutral colors, which gave the clothes on the runway a softer, lighter look.
It was a real shift from recent shows, where designers had picked darker colors that seemed to reflect the gloomy mood of the economy.
This trend even extended to the fingertips with a peachy-nude-putty-colored nail polish worn by models in the Marc Jacob show and a manicure of beige polish, with a thin coral arc applied by celebrity manicurist Jin Soon Choi at Prabal Gurung’s runway show.
Overall, many of the looks for spring were uncomplicated and versatile, which should help these clothes make the transition from the runway to the stores as retail buyers remain selective in their purchases.
What was wild? The Christian Louboutin Shoes-both on and off the runway. (You have to see for yourself. Look at our slideshow.)
It stands to reason. Consumers can only shop their closets for so long. Eventually, they have to start buying again, but they will look for pieces that will work with what they already own (hence the neutrals) and that will make a fresh new statement (cue the shoes.)

Strange this post is totaly unrelated to what I was searching google for, but it was listed on the first page. I guess your doing something right if Google likes you enough to put you on the first page of a non related search. :)

Mistakes are a part of being human. Appreciate your mistakes for what they are: precious life lessons that can only be learned the hard way. Unless it’s a fatal mistake, which, at least, others can learn from.

Coming home from very lonely places, all of us go a little mad: whether from great personal success, or just an all-night drive, we are the sole survivors of a world no one else has ever seen.
