    Neighbor and eyewitness Jim Kelley

    Jim Kelley was the neighbor and eyewitness to the white truck acting suspiciously in the neighborhood on the day and late evening of June 4. Does anyone know the following questions:

    1. Did LE do a search/investigation regarding this eyewitness account?
    2. Was there conclusively anyone besides Jim Kelley that saw this suspicious activity?

    Also, it seems like this neighbor and eyewitness is active in community activity regarding KH. He has been quoted in many articles with his statement "This kind of thing is unheard of" when he was one of the neighbors who showed up at Brooks Hill Historic church on Sunday, June 6 and spoke about KH's dissapearance. Here is one key example: http://www.oregonlive.com/portland/i...gy_of_eve.html

    Does anyone know of any other statements/activities of Jim Kelley besides the eyewitness account and the statement in Oregon Live?

    If this thread is misplaced, I am sorry. I don't post here too often. Thanks.

    Kelley, who lives about a mile and a half down hill, at the end of a winding, secluded country lane off Cornelius Pass, said police, federal agents, K-9 teams and helicopters scoured the area Saturday.

    "We had two odd sightings of a vehicle on our road Friday," Kelley said. Around 3 p.m., he and a neighbor reported seeing a white pick-up truck with a female driver pull to the end of the long road, idle and then turn around. Then again at 2 a.m. Saturday morning, a similar white pickup truck appeared, idled and when a neighbor loosed her dogs, eased away.

    "A, it was strange to have a car there, any car there, that we didn't know, and B, it was strange to have a vehicle come down our dead-end road twice in the same day, hours after a little boy goes missing," said Kelley. "That's beyond rare."


    Kelley said authorities have twice searched the deep ravine, creek and railroad tracks located near the end of his street by air and on foot.

    Ruby Red,

    Thank you for posting the information on Jim Kelley. It appears that the area near where he saw the white truck has been searched good. Do you know if there are any other statements from this eyewitness? What I am asking if he has made additional statements to the press besides the white truck incident?

    Good point. Just wanting to know if there are other statements/activities reported in the media about him.

    It is interesting to note what he observed and we can comment on that, but he is an innocent party and we don't want to discourage anyone from trying to help find a missing child. I appreciate him for sticking his neck out.

    I saw a female neighbor speak out about the odd truck sightings as well (she may be the one that let her dogs loose? not sure). But in the days following her appearance on the news, I didn't see her quoted in any articles. I *believe* she was on KGW, but it could have been KOIN.
    MOO and all that jazz.

    Let's assume it was their truck. Couldn't it have been that Kaine and/or Terri did drive around the neighborhood at some point(s) to see if Kyron had tried to walk home, was hurt, etc? The first time was "around 3 pm", which would have been around the time they learned that Kyron was not on the bus and had been marked absent at school. 2 am, I will admit is an odd time and the police were involved in the search by then. But, they could have went out driving again out of desperation. I know my parents did that with me if I was still out riding my bike too late or something.

    Kyron would have gotten off the bus at 3:30, the time they've given us for when the bus arrived at the stop.

    There would be no need to drive around to look for a boy they assumed was still in school, though it sure wouldn't preclude them driving around the area. We simply don't know enough to say this was their truck and one or both of them were in it.

    I know we don't know enough yet. I was trying to offer a reasonable explanation why they might have been driving around the area, based on Jim Kelly's alleged sightings and estimated times. My point was that even if his sighting is true, it could have been for the reason(s) I described.

    The school bus did arrive at 3:30 and Jim Kelly said "around 3" for this sighting...which could have been 3:15 or it could have been closer to 4, like 3:45. We just don't know and apparently Jim Kelly isn't sure either. If it was the latter part of 3 o'clock, then it definitely could have been either one of them just checking various areas near them right after they got the news that he wasn't on the bus. I agree, again, that 2 am is odd. But, if they did go out at an odd hour like that the very first night that the search was on, wouldn't LE have noticed their car going out at such a strange hour?

    My instinctive reaction when I first read about these events back at the start was that it was the perp getting paranoid that he wasn't really dead or feeling guilty.

    Was the comment about the driver being a blonde woman discounted?

    FWIW, just for clarity, Jim Kelley wasn't really a neighbor and didn't know the Horman's did he?

    I don't know if it's been determined if he knew them.
