    BD's Public Appearances

    Many claim that BD has been cold and unemotional. However, in viewing the tape of BD's press conference, I notice she does choke up here and there.

    What is she talking about when emotion tends to come upon her? Does it appear to be about Hailey missing, or a fear that Hailey may not come home, or what?

    ETA: In the youtube video of the press conference here: Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community - View Single Post - TX - Hailey Dunn -- Media Links ** No Discussion **

    at about :56 in the tape, BD chokes up while saying (this is paraphrased) something about touching Hailey's beautiful. BD then seems to dry up as she goes on to talk about not knowing if Hailey is safe.

    at about 1:26, BD chokes up again when asking whoever might have Hailey to drop her off somewhere safe, but again dries up when asking others to call in any tips regarding Hailey to LE.

    Sounds to me like she knows she won't touch Hailey's beautiful hair (I'm assuming that's what you meant), but knows where Hailey is, so Hailey's safety is not an issue. And it sounds like she wishes this was different, that someone else did have Hailey, but she knows that there won't be any good tips because she and SA are the only ones who know what really happened to Hailey.

    I haven't seen any of her appearances, just read about them, but it seems to me that she gets emotional at things she knows she can't change or do anymore now that Hailey is gone or wishes would change about Hailey and what happened to her, and dries up at the stuff she knows for certain or won't do any good to help find her child.

    Wow, I was thinking she wasn't involved, but now I'm thinking she is...unless I'm wrong about this.

    I am seriously on the fence about if BD had anything to do with HD missing. One thing she says or does and I think she has to have knowledge of what happened. The next thing I'm thinking she's just concerned or not to bright. I will admit that I have issues with parents...moms AND dads....bringing people like SA into their childrens lives. I just can't stand that they can't wait to start their own lives, if they want to live it a certain way, until their children are grown.

    Keep in mind that not everyone is good with/knows how to appropriately express their emotions. I work with people daily that appear cold and aloof, but they are often greatly concerned about things. There are also several types of situations where a person would learn early in life that there is a need to suppress all emotions in order to get one's needs met. I have often seen this in childhood abuse cases when showing emotion to the abuser has tended to increase the amount of abuse one incurred, whereas staying somewhat "stoic" tended to decrease abuse.

    Which brings me back to one of the questions haunting my mind. How was BD and CD home life growing up. I know that everyone isn't a product of their upbringing but some are, IMO.

    That is an excellent question. The only problem is that, unless they decide that they would like to divulge that info, we will not ever know.

    So CaseyLPC, from what you have seen of Billie in media interviews, what is your opinion of her? Are you saying she was abused or grew up in an abusive home?

    I can say this, IMO BD was VERY unemotional early on. We talked extensively here about it. I can very much remember just a few days after all of our comments BD appeared to have more emotion on NG. It was truly ironic to me.

    IMO I most certainly think discussions here were told to BD. I think she was well aware of public opinion about her. We all know that is one of her very top priorities!

    One only has to look at BD in her public appearances to see that she has cried plenty over her daughter. Her puffy eyes and circles tell me she's been very distraught. I know what it's like to want to remain strong and stoic, only to break down in privacy and eventually, when you least expect it.

    Other than pleas for her daughter's safe return and thank you to searchers, I think BD should forego any future interviews or press conferences. Certainly, she shouldn't be answering any questions about her lifestyle, past or present. It does nothing to help find Hailey and gets picked apart, misconstrued and becomes fodder for gossip. Above all, she shouldn't be trying to answer for SA and what he did or didn't do December 27th.

    You know Sue, I have to agree with you...

    I'm not concerned at this point whether she appears to be shedding real tears or not, or whether her voice is monotone or shaky, or whether she's wearing make-up.

    What DOES concern me is that we've heard repeatedly that her statements to LE did not add up, that she failed polygraph questions specifically related to Hailey's disappearance, and that she is still in close contact with the one and only suspect, whom she claims to be in love with.
