Heartbreaking to see videos of her as a little child. Where are you Hailey????

Here is a working link.

It sounds to me as though someone has been 'tipped off' that speaking about a missing child in the past tense is not a very good idea!

...
But as the baby of the house, Hailey does have a streak of mischief!
"We prank each other all the time," Billie reflects.
And a sense of adventure.
"She loves going to Six Flags," Billie recalls, "that's our thing, we're thrill seekers."
Roller coasters were Hailey's favorite.
...

:waitasec: :waitasec:

"thrill seekers" ... "prank" ... "mischief"

When I read this, it seemed to me that Billie was really referring to her and Shawn ... not Hailey ...

My opinion...

Prayers for Hailey ... I hope you are found soon.

It would not surprise me if SA is afraid of roller coasters! He loves scaring innocent young girls,but he is afraid of.... what was it? crickets? grass hoppers?
Yes! SIX FLAGS has bugs!
he was happier on his "comfy couch" huh?
Makes him not scary to me at all just pathetic.
Maybe he just gave HD the "Willy's " he knew she could "take him" with the jujitsu. I hope she did run!!!! I pray to God she did and she is somewhere safe!

Any video or pics of HD's life after 3 or 4 years of age? Her sporting participation? Her cheerleading? Trips to Six Flags? Birthday parties? Did they go to the lake for swimming and picnics? Take mini week-end vacations to see the local sites and history?

The pictures of HD this last Christmas look like a very unhappy child to me. One who has been mentally or physically abused....or both. The pics of her at her father's, with the new baby, appeared more like an active/engaged, happy one to me.

Disconnected. I'm betting Christmas was all about big, baby boy toy and what made him happy.

The "talk" that SA had with HD about his relationship with her mother and how he wasn't replacing her father, just wanted to be her friend. Not buying it. Prolly more like an dissertation on "this is the way it is" and "Get over it.". JMO

This is JMO - I know this is suppose to be a heart warming look at Hailey, but why not show more recent times. They need to get Hailey's face out there as she looks now. She might still be alive, and she doesn't look like a little child anymore.

I was looking for the happy family times in the last year, maybe Hailey opening her presents at Christmas, or a recent birthday party. Did I miss the pic from Six Flags they took? I guess the purpose of this interview was to make Hailey more real to us. Yet, I don't get a sense of urgency from BD about her still missing daughter . BD talks as though she now knows Hailey's not going to be found alive. What was the purpose of the interview then?

I always find the use of the word "exclusive" in regards to pictures and videos interesting in missing children cases.

First, it makes me wonder why someone wouldn't want the pics and videos distributed via as many channels as possible.

Second, it makes me wonder if the reason is that the pics and videos were sold to that one, particular media outlet. To use the word "exclusive", a media outlet usually needs a strong reason for their confidence that they are the only ones with rights to publication, or initial rights to publication.

KTAB is a CBS affiliate. I wonder if we'll see pictures published within the next few days on CBS Crimesider or CBS news. Maybe an upcoming show on 48 Hours Mystery.

JMO but maybe she only picked the much younger Hailey because that was the time when they were close. i was hoping to see all her school pictures K- present why not show her favorite hoodie that everyone has said she loves along with her baby come home outfit? i don't know maybe i just expected to much. IMOO i don't think i'm the only person that has felt "let down" by BD

I find BD's attempts insulting. To HD and my intelligence. It worked for CD when he spoke of HD so BD decided to jump on that, for her however it falls short. Another MAJOR FAIL. IMO, MOO, yada, yada, yada.

IMO Billie is fully aware that HD is no longer alive, and one of the purposes of this was a late and lame attempt to portray Billie as a loving, caring, concerned mother. (Wonder how many bucks were paid for these pix? Donations must have shriveled up by now. Folks will drink tainted Koolaide only so long.)

I think what I had learned though the Haleigh Cummings and Caylee Anthony cases, That they don't pay for interviews but will pay for "exclusive" photos of the child.

I noticed that too, Alice...

Which is interesting when you recall that BD has no computer, and has to rely on others to remind her that there is a balloon release ceremony for her daughter she just might want to attend. :rolleyes:

Priorities.

If it's true that BD's responses are formed to fit public expectations, it says a lot to me. What parent who has a missing child is concerned about the public's opinion of them and their behavior? How does that help find their child?

All I know is what it indicates to me.

When the video started, I had decided that I would try not to be so suspicious. But. I couldn't do it. I feel this was an attempt to rehabilitate BD's image.
Teary eyed, check. talk about daughter in present tense, check. Show videos, check. Talk about fun times and Hailey's personality, check.
It was supposed to be about Hailey, but to me it was about BD. Again. Then she adds, "I'm the lucky one. She's mine."

"No matter what's being said or thrown at me, I'm still very proud to be Hailey's mother," she said, "I'm the lucky one, she's mine."

Almost seems like she is trying to imply that the negativity is about Hailey and not her. I don't think I will ever understand this woman, guilty or innocent. Very strange.

I didn't watch the segment but from reading here, it looks like they showed a lot more pictures of Hailey as a child than as a preteen/teenager. I noticed the same thing on NG. Do they not have any recent pictures of Hailey? Or is there something "wrong" with the recent pictures? Hailey is still missing as a 13-year-old; it's not like she was found murdered and the show is showing her during different stages of her life. But even for murder victims, the vast majority of pictures we saw were taken in the last couple of years of their life. The whole point of all these appearances is to get Hailey's name and face out there and putting pictures of her as a 2-year-old isn't going to help.

Sounds like BD wants people to think HD is like her. I don't believe it. As for pranking each other, in my eyes it seems like BD life was all about her and SA with no room for her children.

Actually I think the reason for this interview and the videos was because someone told BD that people on here were questioning where the pictures and videos of HD life was, after seeing the ones of SA.
It's still as if BD is trying to protect her own image.
MOO

02-17-2011, 06:08 PM
As I watched the video I felt that BD probably, at that time in Hailey's life, was in a stable place. Not so much in the past several years ... The lifestyle of the parent directly relates to the stability and well being of the kid (s), MOO.

Curious Me
02-17-2011, 06:14 PM
What's with the pranks being mentioned again?

Did fun loving SA pull a prank that went bad? It sounded like Hailey needed some closeness with her Mom, and all she got was pranks. BD would probably forgive SA 'cause he just likes to kid around all the time.

I can't speak for that family, but in my own family, we are all big on joking, laughing, even pranking each other. It's how we show our love. My mother had a wonderful sense of humor, and even though my dad was serious and quiet, once in a while he could send us all into a fit of giggles.
My grown boys and their families are the same way now, and we all still love kidding around. I don't find Billie's statement unusual or hinky in any way. Some families are like this, they find great joy in having a good time with each other.

Sorry - typo in my last line. Should have read voluntarily "restrained".

(However, Now that I think about it - CD has been involuntarily "stained" by some.)

PS to sweet Hailey - You are loved and missed by so many. Please give the searchers a sign so they can bring you home.

It's funny (as in strange) that yesterday I was trying to imagine how this lazy apathetic and stupid group would murder a child. I can't see it as cold blood. I have a hard time thinking SA was a child molester when his "woman of choice" is way older than he is. Also, the drugs they're on are "mellow" drugs for the most part. So...my thought was being high and happy and becoming dangerous. Playing out a joke. A prank gone bad. And then here I see today another reference to pranking. Hmmmm...That is looking better and better as a possible situation.

Hi y'all! :seeya:I haven't been on much in the last little while due to health reasons. I haven't stopped thinking about Hailey and wishing her well.

To put my :twocents: in Quiche, maybe wanting to remember the "happpier days" instead of the last year or so, just guessing. Raging hormonal teenagers are not always fun, esp. females, kwim. And esp. when mommy and daddy aren't getting back together and there's a guy you don't like living in your house creeping outside your bedroom door at night and who knows when else.

Hope to heck she ain't reflecting back on "those" years and yearning for a wee one again...:sick: JMHO

What's with saving "all" the baby clothes? A couple cutesy outfits, yes, but many? See above sentence.

If the past "few" years were too rough to put in the video, why stop at age 2 or 3? What about the 10 years between 3 and 13? There were no middle years that I saw. So, so strange. :waitasec: Surely she couldn't have been hormonal since the age of four.

Glad you're feeling better.

It sounds better to be known as the mom who saved all the baby clothes than the mom who redecorated her daughter's room after she'd been missing for a few weeks IMO. (Not sure if the latter story is true but it is out there.)
