Authorities say it's too early to tell if additional child pornography was discovered in the search of Shawn Adkins' grandmother's home in Dunn Thursday evening.
Mitchell County Sheriff Patrick Toombs says a number of electronic devices were removed from the home. Those devices will be sent for testing.
Toombs says this is the third search of the home in Dunn, Texas. He said the second search was consensual. Toombs noted pornography was discovered in the second search, but he couldn't confirm it to be child pornography. Toombs says the images are in the process of being analyzed.
Adkins is the only named suspect in the disappearance of 13-year-old Hailey Dunn.
Toombs added that Adkins does not own his own computer. However, investigators have reason to believe Adkins regularly uses the computer in his grandmother's home.
Friday, 4:30 p.m. Update:
Authorities confiscated electronic items from the home where suspect Shawn Adkins lives in the Scurry County community of Dunn. They were serving a search warrant out of Scurry County.
A second search warrant, served Thursday evening at the home of Billie Dunn, was a warrant for Adkins' body, signed by a Howard County judge. According to Mitchell County Sheriff Patrick Toombs, they were looking for an item Adkins commonly carries with him. He did not have it on him, Toombs said.
Dunn, Texas – As law enforcement in Mitchell County was in the process of arresting Hailey Dunn's mother, officers from Scurry County were searching the home where the only named suspect in the case lives.
Law enforcement executed a Scurry County search warrant at the home of Shawn Adkins' grandmother in Dunn on Thursday.
KRBC's Tim Johnston reports officers took items from the home and searched vehicles on the property. Law enforcement left just before 10 p.m. without making a comment on what they discovered or seized.
Johnston was told by witnesses that authorities had been at the home since early Thursday afternoon.
It's unclear if Adkins was inside the home as the search warrant was carried out.
