    Biggest stories from 2010

    http://kdrv.com/news/local/200590

    In June, another Oregon child disappeared. However, this time, a happy ending wasn't written in 2010.

    Kyron Horman vanished from his school in the Portland area in June. That same month, his mother, Desiree Young of Medford, spoke publicly.

    "I think focusing on just the hope that he's going to come home every day is what gets me through," Young said.

    Six months later, the investigation continues.<snipped>

    The seven-month search for missing Kyron Horman turns its focus today on two rural locations north and west of Portland as investigators run down specific intelligence they've developed and warmer weather conditions now provide a window of opportunity.

    today when crews search near two rural Portland roads.
    At least 40 rescue workers and a handful of search dogs will take part in the effort, says Multnomah County sheriff's spokeswoman Mary Lindstrand.
    They're focusing on Northwest Skyline Road near Rocky Point Road, plus a gravel road in the Dixie Mountain area.

    New Intelligence May 'Bring Closure' to Kyron Horman Case

    A police spokesperson echoed Young's statements, telling KATU that the search today, the first in several weeks, were initiated in the hopes of bringing "closure" to the case.

    The decision to search the two locations today was reportedly based on investigative leads developed by the Kyron Horman Task Force. <snipped>

    At least one neighbor now says he wonders if what he saw the day Kyron disappeared is important.

    Fred Hall, a rancher, said on Monday he saw a white pickup on the Friday that Kyron disappeared about a mile down the road.

    “It was a white truck and it had a gal sitting in it,” he said.

    Hall said he called in the tip to investigators and told them where he saw the unfamiliar truck on Skyline Boulevard.

    “It was parked at one of the gates,” he said.

    Investigators said they are specifically searching the land around turnouts that have gates where a car or truck could easily park. Many of the gates aren’t locked and a car or truck could drive in and disappear down a gravel road.

    Dorsey retired from the FBI at the end of 2010, after an extraordinary career that took him across the globe and into some the darkest places of the human psyche.

    Dorsey, 57, was one of a just a handful of profilers with vast knowledge of child abduction, child murder and serial killer investigations.

    He worked many of the high-profile abduction cases whose names are familiar to people across the country — JonBenét Ramsey, Elizabeth Smart, Jessica Lunsford, Samantha Runnion, Jacob Wetterling. He worked on the case of Heaven LaShae Ross, who disappeared while walking to her bus stop in Northport in 2003. He was deployed to 202 on-site investigations in 44 states, most recently to Portland, Ore. to investigate the case of Kyron Horman, a 7-year-old who disappeared from his elementary school in June.

    Kyron Horman's mother puts pressure on his stepmother

    snip

    Saturday Kyron's mother, Desiree Young, was in Roseburg, Oregon, where Moulton-Horman has lived with her parents since her husband filed for divorce weeks after Kyron's disappearance.

    “We are putting the pressure on Terri,” Young told KGW. “We are bringing it to her. She needs to know we will not rest until Kyron is brought home.”

    Young, her husband Tony and members of their family were handing out new fliers highlighting Kyron.

    Young urged people who see Moulton-Horman to ask her about Kyron.

    MCSO has published a Flash Alert announcing the meeting with the Commissioners on Feb 24. It says, in part, "...will not include specific investigative details as this remains an open and ongoing investigation."

    Multnomah County Commissioners have apparently redesigned their website, resulting in confusion! Here is the link I just found to today's Board meeting, showing Staton on the revised schedule. Perhaps others can find other links they need there related to this meeting:

    The team of investigators assigned to the case includes an expert in information technology and a communications technology expert hired out of California to look over cell phone and cell tower data. There is also a behavioral psychologist helping in the case, Staton said.
    Multnomah County Chief Deputy Jason Gates says the FBI has been a partner in the investigation "since day one."

    Two Multnomah County commissioners Thursday morning said they were surprised to learn through The Oregonian of the added involvement by the FBI in the ongoing criminal investigation into the disappearance of Kyron Horman.

    "As a mother, I can only imagine the horror this family is feeling at this point," Commissioner Loretta Smith said. "But as a commissioner -- and this is directed to the DA's office -- are we on the right track?"

    "The short answer is yes," responded Rod Underhill, a chief deputy district attorney, who addressed the county board Thursday with Sheriff Dan Staton.

    Underhill said any case must be proven "beyond a reasonable doubt."

    "As such, it requires a tremendous amount of work to bring to justice an individual, or individuals, responsible," Underhill said. The role of the district attorney's office is to advise and provide investigative support to the ongoing investigation, he said.

    "It's a duty that we will work and work and work until this matter is resolved," Underhill said.

    In response to a query on whether the investigation was still on track, Multnomah County deputy district attorney Rod Underhill said yes.

    The goal, he said was "to create a case that is provable in a court of law to a standard of reasonable doubt. It is the highest standard available, relative to prosecution."

    "...Capt. Jason Gates, told reporters Thursday that investigators hope to bring things to an end "either by solving the case or coming to a semi-conclusion by having done all that we can do."

    Horman divorce hearing scheduled for Thursday cancelled, set over for another three months

    http://www.oregonlive.com/portland/i...g_schedul.html

    The Multnomah County judge handling the pending divorce case between Kaine Horman and Terri Moulton Horman has cancelled a scheduled Thursday hearing and will delay it for another three months.


    Multnomah County Judge Keith Meisenheimer ruled in October that there's "substantial overlap of evidence" between the divorce case and the criminal inquiry and parallel proceedings could create a discovery nightmare. But he said he also had to balance Terri Horman's constitutional rights with Kaine Horman's right to a prompt resolution of custody, parenting, property and financial matters.
