Early in January investigators executed a search warrant for several electronic devices, according to Mitchell County Sheriff, Patrick Toombs, who is involved in the investigation, over a 100,000 images were found "depicting deviant acts."
These acts were later confirmed as child pornography and bestiality, topics that Billie Dunn, Adkins' girlfriend and mother of missing teen, Hailey Dunn, doesn't believe he's involved in.
"It's definitely a shock," said Dunn, adding, "I've talked to him [Adkins] about it a little bit and I'll talk to Shawn a little more [later]."
"Of course, he didn't put anything like that on there," insists Dunn about the pornography accusations.
Dunn went on to say the recent reports that pornographic pictures were found by investigators doesn't sound like her boyfriend.
"It's definitely out of character for him. I've known him for a while, and I've never known him to be into anything like that, or we wouldn't have a relationship."
While Dunn admits Adkins was the one who brought over the memory stick that was confiscated, she says she's still in the dark about what is happening.
"I haven't gotten to talk to investigators, to find out what it is."
Still, for the mother of the missing teen, these reports are a lot to take in.
"You just don't want to be associated with that stuff [alleged child pornography and bestiality]."
