Discussion in 'Kyron Horman' started by RoseTree, Apr 7, 2012.
I remember hearing about someone having an affair. JMO
TMH was allegedly "sexting" with a former high school friend of Kaines's during the early days when Kyron went missing.
Just curious what your opinion is- Why is she finally pursuing visitation 3 1/2 years later?
Thanks Scandi, could it have anything to do with DS? How about that evidence found in the search Desiree hinted about? Carp, I can't stand those news teasers!
I'd forgotten that Desiree had hired Elden Rosenthal, another brilliant Portland attorney. There's some real heavy hitters on the legal teams on all sides of this mess. If anyone could match TMH's attorney Stephen Houze blow for blow, it's Elden Rosenthal. Too bad they decided to drop the civil suit.

Has the landscaper been deposed yet?
KATU's report tonight was regarding the landscaper's deposition. Frankly I was underwhelmed by the report. Supposedly he was first hired in 2008 to do work at the Hormans' home. About five months prior to Kyron going missing, he met with TMH at a restaurant, and the baby girl was there as well. He stated that she told him that she wanted Kaine gotten rid of because he would never let her have her daughter (implication that in a divorce she would not get custody). She told him that Kaine regularly carried around $10K in cash and a computer and it could be made to look like a mugging.
Kaine says he never carried around that kind of money.
There must be much more in that depo, why it's not being reported is odd to me.
Thanks La Louve, I can't believe I missed that newscast, but my D in L called and needed to talk and I didn't have the heart to say I've got to watch the news! lol
I agree there must be much more in that depo of the landscaper. Or it might be simply HOW the TV station is reporting the news, to protect Kaine who is a victim in the case. I think the landscaper and TH knew each other pretty well. She might have told him things that have not come out in print yet. If that is the case I don't think we will hear those things until the trial. IMO
Somehow I think the reasons stated for her wanting to get rid of Kaine are not even worth killing somebody for - if that makes sense! Sounds like some poetic license by a reporter.
I don't understand how Terri can afford those lawyers. Can anyone take a guess as to how much she had to pay for her legal team so far? I don't get it, as I am pretty sure her family is middle-class. Are they working pro-bono? And if they are, do they secretly hope that the case will go to trial so they can get even more publicity?
Here is a link for the story: http://www.katu.com/news/Details-in...31.html?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter
The landscaper, Rodolfo Sanchez claims in a deposition taken last month that:
• Terri hired him to perform landscaping work in 2008;
• Kaine was never told that Sanchez was doing the work;
• Terri had been contemplating divorcing Kaine for many months;
Now, if only KATU could find and report on the details of Spicer's depo!!! I am very interested in what she had to say.
TMH allegedly texted Kaine's high school friend (the guy she was allegedly sexting with) that attorney Houze's retainer was $350K.
The reason this became an issue in the divorce is that Kaine's divorce attorneys are arguing they want to know where Terri got the retainer money from, and if it is from assets in the marriage that Kaine is entitled to half of that amount. Houze of course denied that Terri's retainer was that much.
$350K may be high, but considering the high profile clients Houze has represented (Portland Trailblazer team member accused of rape, local car dealership magnate leaving the scene of a hit and run, etc.) IMO there is no way Houze is working for Terri pro bono.
Dang those phone calls from family when we're trying to watch the news!
I agree that the news reports are probably holding back a lot of salacious details from the depositions that could be considered a distraction to the search for Kyron. The last thing Kaine and Desiree want is for the public to stop caring about finding Kyron.
Perhaps her parents took out a home equity loan?
Wow. Just wow.
Btw, odd use of words...."he COULD refuse the offer" vs would. Odd.
I doubt the Hormans would've been able to get that large an amount in equity from their home. It's no estate or mansion. And in 2010 the housing market in Oregon was in the tank, so home values would've been lower.
I think more likely it was a combination of home equity loan and cashing out some retirement funds. And who knows what Terri might have been squirreling away while she was living with Kaine. I don't know much about the body building competitive circuit but maybe she had some prize money from that as well.
There was a second grand jury. DeDe Spicher testified and appears to be "cooperating" to some degree. Despite this, there was no indictment. Added to the fact that it has been four years without an arrest, TH is feeling more confident and feels she can play ball a little bit, in the family law litigation arena, at least enough to possibly get some access to her child.
Previously, the investigation was very hot and I think she (and her attorneys) expected or greatly feared imminent arrest. The above changes the picture somewhat.
It appears they did get some money and probably have a family law property lien against TH's interest in any property owned by the couple.
But even well-known, experienced criminal defense (and other) attorneys will take high profile cases for free or low cost, because they (or their firms) can always do with the extra business it brings (think Mark Geragos and Gloria Allred).
