Law enforcement has named several "persons of interest" in a case that continues to focus on the criminal element. One of the names on the list, Shawn Adkins, Billie Dunn's boyfriend.
While he is a "person of interest," he is not a suspect in the investigation, but Hailey's paternal grandmother, Connie Jones, thinks otherwise.
"You wanted Hailey out of that home, is that correct?" asked host Nancy Grace on her own show on HLN.
"Yes ma'am," answered Jones, adding she tried that last January.
Jones specifically mentioned she wanted to get the teenager away from her mom's boyfriend.
"Because Hailey told me that with him living there, in the past, that he would walk around at night time and the hall light would be on. You could see his shadow," said Jones on "Nancy Grace."
"Hailey was afraid of him?" clarified Grace. "Yes ma'am," answered Jones.
While the mother was unaware of these claims, "Why would nobody tell me this? If she was concerned about that, why not tell me, or Clint, a long time ago?" said Dunn on the show.
The teen's mother said she's been doing everything to help investigators, including what could be a search underneath her own home.
"There was a place that Clint, when he was here, boarded up a long time ago so the dogs couldn't get under there. I know where it is, and we can get them [the investigators] under there."
Dunn told Grace, that her ex-husband was in Odessa following up a tip that someone gave, claiming to have seen the teenager with a young boy on the side of the road.
