    In a dream world, say the one some anonymous Internet commenters occupy, Terri Horman would be locked in a jail cell right now, behind bars until she came clean. Gore would be booking a private jet to Portland to face charges, or already exonerated and back at work reminding us all that we're destroying the planet.

    Unfortunately for our communal need for concrete results and instant gratification, cases like these aren't about what really happened in the wilds of Northwest Portland or the ninth floor of the Hotel Lucia. They're about what prosecutors can prove.

    Polygraph tests aren't admissible, no matter how many Terri Horman takes. Cell phone records may prove she wasn't where she was supposed to be, but that's circumstantial evidence. I started the search for Kyron worrying that the Sheriff's Office seemed slow and clumsy. Now I think Staton's crew is being understandably and even admirably methodical, connecting all the dots before revealing the picture they form.

    Detectives press on in Kyron Horman investigation as costs mount and boy remains missing
    Updated: Saturday, July 03, 2010, 12:02 AM


    Kyron Horman investigation:
    Transcript of interview with Sheriff Dan Staton

    Updated: Saturday, July 03, 2010, 12:03 AM

    Staton: I believe, and if you're going to ask me the question do I believe Kyron is still alive, there's nothing that's come out of this investigation that has indicated to me that he is not alive. They've developed nothing that would say otherwise.


    Staton: But what I can tell you is that through the investigators and what I've been briefed on in my involvement in this investigation, is that there's nothing that's been developed that would tell me to change the direction or course of this investigation and that he's still alive and we're going to go on that premise.

    Sheriff says missing Oregon boy's stepmother cooperated
    Last Update: 6:20 am

    Multnomah County Sheriff Dan Staton says the stepmother of a missing seven-year-old Portland boy has been cooperating with investigators.

    That assessment came yesterday and is at variance with what the biological parents of Kyron Horman said the day before when they pleaded with Terri Horman to, as they put it, "fully cooperate" with investigators.

    Hope this hasn't been posted yet, I apologize if it has. I found it interesting that the LE spokesman rolled his eyes upward when asked if TH was a person of interest. It was as if he had to think about what to say before answering...it's real quick, but telling to me.....imho it tells me that he knows she is THE person of interest.

    Bill for Kyron Horman investigation reaches $300,000
    Mystery surrounds the June 4th disappearance of Kyron Horman. The boy seems to have vanished without a trace. But in an interview with Oregonian staffers Helen Jung and Kate Mather, the Multnomah County sheriff has offered some new information about the investigation itself.

    The massive search, for instance, hasn't yielded a single clue about what happened to the boy. The sheriff, Dan Staton, has dedicated all but one of the agency's detectives to the case. The investigation so far has cost taxpayers $300,000, prompting cuts in other areas of the agency.

    You can choose to be bitter or better when handling your problems.

    Investigators are declining to confirm or deny published accusations that Terri Horman tried to hire someone to kill her husband seven or so months ago.

    "The Multnomah County Sheriffs Office has no comment," Lt. Mary Lindstrand, the office's public information officer, told the Portland Tribune.

    from KOIN 6:



    Multnomah County Sheriff Dan Staton Sunday said he had "no comment" directly about the facts in the article, and he was "not sure how the information was obtained". However, Staton did imply that events could move quickly during the next few days. When asked for a timetable of upcoming developments, he told KOIN Local 6, "I should be able to answer a lot more questions this coming week. I've got a lot of decisions this coming week."

    Kaine Horman told of plots against him

    Kaine Horman, whose seven-year-old son Kyron has been missing for more than four weeks, was told by investigators that his wife Terri had offered a landscaper "a lot of money" to kill him, according to more than one source.

    He was also told "if she did it once, there's a chance she did it other times and we're investigating that possibility."

    DHS opened a case on Kyron's stepmom years ago


    A source confirmed late Sunday afternoon that the Oregon Department of Human Services opened a case on Terri Horman following a 2005 arrest and charge of driving under the influence. Her biological son, who was 11 at the time, was in the car when his mother was arrested. As such, Horman also was convicted of reckless endangerment of that son.

    Horman pleaded guilty in that incident. She had her license suspended for a month and a half, and is still serving out a 12-month probation for those convictions.

    We called the Department of Human Services to try to get answers from the agency's case file. Instead, DHS workers referred us to investigators working Kyron Horman's disappearance case.
