Please think long and hard before calling a child a 'run-a-way':
You might be giving a 'perk' to the 'perp'.
Democracy requires the occasional necessity of deferring to the opinions of other people. (Winston Churchill)
When the biological parents gave interviews last week, they specifically mentioned that Kyron could not see well without his glasses. While I don't think the public needs to know about the medical issues of a child, knowing that Kyron had a birthmark and allergy to bees would have been helpful in identifying the missing boy. I wonder if Kyron needed an Epipen or other allergy medication for the bee stings? I feel that the parents were remiss in making this vital information known. jmo
They have a completely misguided sense of how to utilize the assets of the media, and instead have come off as small, vindictive, and mean spirited.
Instead of engendering sympathy and support for thier cause, they have stabbed themselves in the proverbial foot.
Seeing WW is one of them kicked out I wouldn't take much of what they are saying as " given truth" He could of very well said them things maybe he didn't We was not there so who knows. But seeing they was one kicked out I'm sure they are not going to be all perfect in what they post now. IMO
I confess I've only been skimming these threads the last several days. I keep thinking one day I'll log on & see he's been found !
Instead, I'm more confused by what I read everyday. I can't make sense of any of it. I feel so sad for Kyron though. He deserved so much better.
again all that being said, where do you place this case with any other with (sorry for the term) part-time bio mom calling out the step mother of her missing child. The Step mother who her ex husband has recently filed for divorce and filed for a family child abuse prevention restraining order against (and taken her pride and joy.... her baby girl).
I don't see this case as an oh my gosh.. see the similtarities case at all! I have never seen something like this!
it is nuts!
This bee my opinion
Someone reported something too close to the truth. At least we know there is more than one newspaper in Oregon that is still capable of investigative journalism. (Digging the dirt.) I knew they would be angry with the Willamette Week, It was the Oregonian getting "booted" that surprised me.
If the press quits digging the people lose interest. I said this in the beginning, I don't care what the press dug up on me as long as my missing child's pic and story was still being shown in the media.
There are some people in this situation that have massive control issues. Makes people start taking a second look at somethings.
"I would rather die standing than live on my knees": French editor and cartoonist Stephane Charbonnier.
Where's the strategy in booting reporters, being team players ? Being allergic to bee stings....well that's kinda DA*NED important info to get out there, especially right at FIRST when no one's sure what the hello happened! Was it to put pressure on TH, I don't think so....there's already PLENTY of pressure. We have entered BIZZAR-O world my friends.
If there's hink....there must be stink.
The note was posted in response to the Oregonian article that questioned the response time of the school and LE. I don't know how to imbed the image of the note, but the note read:
Your implied criticism of law enforcement effort in this search is not the majority opinion by anyone we've talked to in this neighborhood.
Frankly, your Sunday article on the front page is bull*****.
The owner of this building
Removal of this notice gets media kicked off the property
(Stuart, we don't feel this way about you)"
Actually, this note helped narrow some things down for me. The ONLY person I don't suspect at this point is Stuart. I am 100% certain that Stuart was not involved. IMO.

Was this just an unfortunate blunder by a desperate family? The WW stood on Terri's doorstep, made her come out with the baby, chatted about grass, and took pictures of her nut house welcome. Maybe, just maybe the WW deserved a slap.
Stepping back just a bit - Perhaps they just need professional help with the media. Perhaps they need an attorney for this criminal matter. (Not to defend them, but to guide them.) Frankly, I'm surprised no one is helping them... Maybe having LE officer in their family makes them a little overconfident on the do-it-yourself front?
I dunno. I'm still stunned & teh still hasn't brought me my smelling salts.
That said, I think we may be in for quite a shock if the truth ever comes out. People here are not easily fooled and have been picking up on little "oddities" from the beginning without being disrespectful to anyone involved. Everyone here knows you can't afford to take anyone at face value. Hate to sound paranoid, but it's true.
Surely LE is scrutinizing everything and everyone just as closely as we are. I hope so.
The statement wasn't what I expected, but then I have the strong feeling it was not directed at me. It was a desperate measure to do something to try to get Kyron back. I feel for DY, because that must have been incredibly hard to do, to deliver. I don't even want to analyze it, though I could. Since the horror going on isn't about me, I don't take offense at what they feel they have to do to try to save their little boy, if there is any chance at all they can. They owe me nothing and him everything, and his life is at stake. The press will attend to their own hurt feelings, and will be fine as long as they have a story.
OK... let's think. There was a huge argument Saturday that started around 5:30 or so (don't remember the exact time of the first 911 call). Someone at the Horman home was being 'threatened'. LE came out, and then apparently left. Things did not settle down because a second "child custody" call happened around 11:00 pm that night. KH left with the baby and has successfully managed to get a RO, so that must mean TH was the aggressor in Saturday's event - but she wasn't arrested. Up until this Saturday event, all four of the adults in this case appeared to be supporting each other. Does anyone else have any more information about those 911 calls?
So,who's getting played here,you know,this whole thing is off,only ones I feel confident in is Desiree and Tony.For all we know TH could have been set up,I think she hasn't been,but if she is the one,why did she do this and why in the heck is he not showing any emotion and looks so nervous?What is all this "control" thing going on?I feel like we're being put to bed for 12 hours and having to stay there till someone comes and gets us and that's suppose to be normal,NOT.
This is too wierd,I mean I feel sorry for Desiree,but she's not wanted custody of either child,the fathers have raised both boys and Terri has raised Kyron.So,what was the reason,if she did,hide Kyron?She knows there's tons of other family she could have reached out to,I'm just not getting it.Oh by the way,if I left home and came back to find my baby gone,you better believe 911 would have to be called. If this was a divorce play,it's sure worked to this point,whose in control?
