Where's Kyron? Interview contradicts past reports
Story Published: Aug 18, 2010 at 11:48 AM PDT
The contradiction goes to the heart of what Spicher was doing the morning Kyron Horman vanished. Multiple sources have said Spicher and Terri Horman could not account for about an hour and a half the day Kyron disappeared. And The Oregonian reported Spicher abruptly left a nursery where she was working that morning.
But according to People magazine reporter Elaine Aradillas, Spicer told her: “I never left the property that day.”

DeDe Spicher's former boyfriend describes Terri Moulton Horman's friend as a "high-energy, dynamic" person who changed dramatically

Updated: Wednesday, August 18, 2010, 5:15 PM
An ex-boyfriend of DeDe Spicher said he was stunned when he learned that investigators were interested in the whereabouts of Spicher on the day Kyron Horman, 7, disappeared from Skyline School.
Jason Wishert, who has volunteered as a child's advocate in Multnomah County for more than a decade, said he dated Spicher for about 10 months, and they had even talked of marriage, but their relationship fell apart in early August 2009.
Wishert, 41, said he called the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office tip line soon after hearing Spicher's name in the news.
"My mouth was agape. I couldn't believe what I was seeing," Wishert recalled. "I thought, 'Oh my gosh, there's two things that investigators should look at.' "

OMG. No one is going to know nothing (anything) until Kyron is found, DoA. This is one of the saddest cases I have ever seen. So sorry, so sorry. Very sad.
I think of Kyron every day.
My Dear God, what has happened to him? Where is the little guy?
My heart is breaking.
