Kyron Horman Missing Case: Terri Horman Breaks Her Silence In People Magazine Interview

New York, NY-  For nearly five and a half years Terri Horman has refused to speak publicly about her step-sons case.  Outside of one assertion of her innocence while on the stand in a name change hearing she ultimately was denied, Horman did not speak to any reporters or answer any of their questions regarding Kyron Hormans disappearance. Until Now.

Horman was interviewed by People Magazines Elaine Aradillas for both the print and online editions,  and will be doing a series of personal interviews over the next week, to include

In the brief online video excerpt , the second part to air on ABC’s Good Morning America Friday morning,  Horman  maintains she is deaf in her left ear, a critical factor in the outcome of her first polygraph.

“… At what point are Kyron’s biological parents going to realize I don’t have the answers, they need to change this thing around…”

“…There is so much the public is not being told about this investigation, that’s why I am doing this- nobody is looking for Kyron…”

Horman’s interview drew sharp reactions from Kaine Horman and Desiree Young, Kyron’s parents.

“…Why is she silent for 5 1/2 years if she is innocent.  I want her to tell me where Kyron is.  If she is innocent she should call Multnomah County Sheriffs Office and sit down for an interview…”-  Desiree Young

“Hi friends. Yes I am well aware of the tabloid journalism piece in the media today. FYI – there will be more of the same coming Friday
We have a HOST of MCSO and FBI investigators STILL standing by with interviews and polygraphs when someone actually wants to cooperate. FEEL FREE TO STOP BY THEY ARE WAITING!! STILL!! Until then we’ll stick with the scores of people with valid/accurate information and the failed polygraphs as the only actual actions taken to-date.  To all of you: how about not linking the article/interview?
REMEMBER KYRON?!?!? This is what we need to be focused on!!
Love you Kyron!!” – Kaine Horman post on his Facebook Page

Christina Stoy, Editor In Chief was able to confirm with Ms. Horman directly that she has been willing to meet with Kyron’s investigators both previously and in the future with the sole provision that it be conducted in the presence of her Attorney,  Portland criminal defense lawyer Stephen Houze.

Horman went on to say that investigators with the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office have been well aware of “that” over the last five and a half years and they have never requested an interview.  Um, What?

Horman reveals some shocking details about the subsequent polygraphs examinations referenced by Kaine Horman and Desiree Young and other allegations of improper tactics on behalf of MCSO in the second half of her interview to air tomorrow morning on abc’s GMA and on Nightline.

    OT, but for me, it is an example of how police should conduct themselves when a child is missing/kidnapped/murdered. This was right in my “backyard” and I drive through the little girl’s Valley neighborhood every other day. RIP little Maddox.

    The evil that men do. I will never desensitize. God rest this tiny soul.

  2. Rose says:

    @TRuth. Ott would have re-tasked one of the many who report to her as HR Dir.
    Then There’s Lt Smith. not only Staton’s recent spokesperson
    who attended the Rigchie mtg and “kept” the report, but a “spokesman” for Staton way back to 9/2/15:
    Since he rocketed up to Professional Standards from a post that used to be 1/3 of professional standards, and before that iirc was Logistics, with his now being given a public face, perhaps this is who Staton had been grooming to take over on his retirement.

  3. Rose says:

    OR DOJ will hopefully interview the entire HR Dept including secretaries, and Lt Smith (who holds onto reports in process) and everyone who reports to him, as well as all other direct Sheriff reports.

  4. Rose says:

    former Internal Affairs Dir Sean Mallory would also be a good interview, if DOJ can find him as be and his team rotate from homeless encampment to homeless encampment reaching out across the city.

    btw both Pitkin, and a Julie Kafoury (wife of the big bucks commercial broker), the latter using Lexis, accessed Metro foia in 2015. He probably does pi for personal injury torts and firms like Kafoury’s that pay the lawyer real money rather than divorces where not much money is at stake like Hormans.

    What a beautiful little girl. So horribly sad and sickening. RIP Maddox.

    This article on why and just who gets charged with 1st degree murder, as opposed to 2nd is enlightening, at least to me. I did not realize the criteria. IMO they/we should add to the 1st degree charge to include anyone who kills an innocent child.

    The DA noted that first-degree murder is reserved for murders of police officers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians, ambulance drivers, paramedics, physicians or registered nurses who are performing official duties as first responders. Murders of judges and corrections officers are also counted, as well as murders in which prison inmates were already serving life sentences.

    There’s also law prosecuting paid hitmen, terrorists and those who kill witnesses as first-degree murderers. And murderers who “torture” their victims in an especially “cruel and wanton manner.” (The killer must “relish” in the extreme pain caused to the victim.)

    The only other way to charge first-degree murder? To prove the murder happened during the commission of these specified crimes: robbery, burglary, kidnapping, arson and certain sex crimes.

    But to charge first-degree murder, prosecutors likely would have to prove Ryan Lawrence kidnapped his own daughter and then intended to kill her sometime after the kidnapping. In other words, that the intent of the kidnapping was separate from the intent to kill her. So far, prosecutors believe she was abducted for the purpose of killing her.

    nicely done.

    maybe the Commissioners should file their own mcso foias.

    The only item Jacquiss failed to note is the rise in use of
    fore in the last 3 years coincides with Yankee’s (head of corrections) transfer to hdqtrs.
    niw, Mike Shults (and below):

  7. Rose says:

    Imo this recent string of Jacquiss comments reinforces a view of the Hirman investigation
    not known to the public in 2010: Sheriff Staton himself, not “detectives”, was fully in control of the Horman investigation, its seizure of jurisdiction (OT makes Unions happy), its focus, its missteps, its communications to the DA, and its public communications. I imagine Jacquiss will get to the “failed investigation” eventually. I’d love to see
    Blink get there first.

    Not seeing that in comments?
    I agree Staton was showing up at interviews of material witnesses- ie: Tanner Pumala- who’s Grand decided to contact media and speak publicly.
    I’m there, in the weeds Rose :)

  8. Rose says:

    Her report Blink:
    One can see why Staton’s syncophant Smith calls it a “work in process”, because she has a category Next Steps which gives him an out. Her next steps are inchoate, likely because she was never aCorrections Commander.

    Imo the only issue with this report is the Next Steps phase, and an Inspector Smith who hasn’t determined and tasked that in 6 months needs to take advantage of PERS.

    So tired of Soldier leading a FB charge on Spicher who

  10. Rose says:

    Sorry, I wrote unclearly.
    Not meaning comments to Jacquiss articles.
    I meant the content of his articles; his own comments.
    in Jacquiss’storylines he portrays the Sheriff as having absolute agency control.
    His strength is manifested in personnel reassignments (which date back to the first months of his tenure), promotions, lay offs and demotions, and attention to detail, although in the matter of the audit, Staton has strangely pled ignorance.

    off my game now mentally because distracted by the debate.
    hoped 2 dilletante demagogues would go down, and I
    go for the first military putsch in our history if a trump card is played.
    This is like a video game where all implode.

    Blink, Christie’s Bridge was nothing in comparison
    Personally, I think 1st Baptist Marfa TX needs to call one of those stentorian voices.

  11. Rose says:

    Hah. Tanner’s grandma put him in front of cameras becauseSheriff Staton himself
    sat in on Tanner’s mcso interview? Is that what you said? If so, go Grandma!
    Proves my current sense that Staton’s fingerprints were on every aspect of this investigation.
    And did vwoolf say somewhere he had tete a tetes with Desiree? egging her on
    to what?

    He was there, correct. Family allowed him (Tanner) to speak out against advice, all I can say on that.
    I did not understand Vwolf comment as it is my understanding Staton has no contact with Desiree, nor does she with any member of the DA’s office.

  12. Rose says:

    Thank you.
    Who has been and is Desiree’s contact
    with mcso who has had the responsibility
    from 6/5/10 to update her on the
    investigation, to your knowledge?
    It has sounded like at times O’Donnell has been her briefer?
    and Herron as to search sites.

    I could not say with certainty what that timeline has been Rose- wte that I can confirm she most definitely was updated as to DDS being cleared of any knowledge or involvement after her (DY) accusations last June. I do not have any faith they are being truthful with her and unfortunately that she has been truthful in her public comments. One teaser *I will not comment on further* until I publish my update/interview article- is that after much diligence I now truly understand WHY DDS was believed to be complicit if TH had been. Obviously it should have been ruled out early on, but I can see how MCSO went down that road so to speak.

  13. Rose says:

    What is Sheriff Staton doing sitting in on a 7-8 yo’s interview
    regarding an abducted child’s final sightings,
    but to exude intimidation by his large((ard)
    bodyand big green suit?
    to direct the conversationof the interviewee.

    You think I have the faintest? As I understand it the interview was conducted by a CARD agent and at that point I am told the prevailing theory was that Kyron walked off grounds.

  14. Rose says:

    Moawad was given this sex offender case before she retired as a prosecutor.

    Busy nephew: babysitting the family dog outside and 10 year old inside
    (but impossibke to do both) for ten minutes while both parents
    sit in the empty lot of a closed tire store. Sounds strange in itself.

    Rees prosecuted it- very odd Aimee Green was denied that FOIA.

  15. Rose says:

    One now sees why Elizabeth Trojan was stressed by Staton’s threat.
    3 weeks before the meeting
    she led and kicked off a legal process to change Oregon state law
    to limit campaign contributions inState.
    Apparently Oregon, like NJ, is an outlier.

  16. Rose says:

    Who would make walk off a leading theory when during the
    disappearance there was a building full of strangers
    and a chaotic scene with open doors?
    The only possible explanations for a walk off theory:
    1) He didn’t want to go to Medford that weekend.
    2. The classroom (or the talent show) was a source of stress to be avoided.
    3) he’s easily led by older acting-out kids.

    … but I can see how MCSO went down that road so to speak.


    So, it sounds like TH may have done her half hour stop at Skyline and Germantown, probably the SE corner. It’s a very large flat graveled area and is less than a half mile up the road (and through the trees) from Westwind Farm.

    If so, it makes sense why so much was made of that intersection and sightings that might have been made of TH and the truck there at around 10:30 that morning. And, it would explain why several searches were made in that area. The SE corner was used as a staging area for at least one search of that area, and probably all of them.

    So Q- I am apparently not as slick of a wordsmith as I like to think, lol. Not quite, no, but I will be going over this is minute detail.

    O/T, I am shocked that Christie came out endorsing Trump today. Not that I know anything about NJ, but I just lost all respect for Christie.
    And I kinda’ liked him.

  20. T. Ruth says:

    Recently DY contradicted herself, again, by saying at first she didn’t think Terri had done anything with Kyron’s disappearane. Yet this is what she said back in 2013:

    September 17, 2013
    What did you think when you first got those calls back in June 2010?

    “Yeah, uhm right away I felt like uh Terri’s story wasn’t jiving, she was lying to me.” (snip)

    “Uh her story just wasn’t lining up, my gut was telling me that uh, something was wrong very seriously wrong.”

    When asked a bout the job LE has done so far, this was her answer:

    “You know honestly I feel like LE has done an incredible job.” (snip as she talks about all hercase reviews and amber alerts)
    “And i truly have not seen a case that has been this thorough and initiated as well as Kyron’s case, it could have gone bad from the very beginning just based on the jurisdiction question was ppb going to handle it or mcso going to handle it, and they did it right, right from the very beginning, and they dispatched everybody to the scene. So I applaud them fro that and I so far have been extremely happy with everything they’ve done. Obviously, three plus years later I’m a little disappointed with he progress that we haven’t made, mostly in bringing Terri Horman accountable for her actions and proceeding with that avenue.”

    I know we commented before on this, back when it took place, but I wish someone would ask her this question again, now in 2016. If she still thinks LE has done such a grand job, then why is she taking it upon herself, along with her sister and their groupies to ask for tips to be resubmitted to them personally? Why are they demanding that Kaine’s property be searched once again? This sure doesn’t sound to me like someone who is/was ever happy with the investigation. It sounds to me, like the only thing she was happy with at the time this interview was made back in 2013, was the fact that she felt LE was focusing on TMH, who she says, laughingly, Kantor “candidly” (not so candid if you ask me) called TMH a suspect.

    If she currently is not happy with the investigation and LE is still focusing on TMH, then what is she unhappy with? Or is she unhappy now because LE is no longer focusing on TMH? She is not asking for tips to help find Kyron. They’re specifically asking for tips that had something to do with TMH’s whereabouts that day. This speaks volumes to me.

    I’m still overwhelmed that her comment on being slightly disappointed in the investigation, had NOTHING to do with the fact that her son has not been found.

    @Blink, I wish you were going to interview DY.

    Me too. Ya never know.

  21. MockingbirdSings says:

    Did Terri ever for even 5 minutes believe the walk off theory was likely?
    Rose mentioned “stress to be avoided”. That reminded me that any child vulnerable to sensory overload or anxiety from any cause could have become very uncomfortable as the morning went on – Terri described it as chaotic and I’ve had enough experience in school buildings with crowds to know exactly what that feels and sounds like. Not saying this fits Kyron, but even more – why waste valuable time on that one theory that early in the investigation and fail to declare the school a crime scene, possibly losing some information forever? This one question says incompetence to me more than any other thing MCSO did.

    Not only did they fail to declare it a crime scene- they compromised it.

  22. Quizzical says:

    Well, I had to take a shot, lol. I eagerly await the minutiae.

    !! :)

  23. Rose says:

    If the school was declared a crime scene, PPB absolutely would have had jurisdiction by contract with PPS. All that mcso Overtime gone… including Staton’s own OT had anyone ever foia’d that in 2010. Heck the guy sat in on kid interviews….

    Not in city limits Rose- no argument here at the rest as you know.

  24. Rose says:

    @TRuth. He was always gunning for Veep. That’s why he attacked
    no. 2/3, not the top dog. There is a great essay on
    HuffPost today from the WashPo on the matter of the GOP reaping
    what it has sowed.

  25. Rose says:

    @TRuth. The unhappiness of Desiree’s Soldiers, top to bottom of the platoon, is focused on the DA.
    The troops’ anger appears to be his failure to charge and bring to trial Terri and DeDe.
    The troops have an email, snail mail, and phone calls campaign in progress. At some point, when Soldier can pay for shirts she claims to have ordered, she states they will picket in person at the DA’s office premises.
    Who knows what of that is truth?

  26. Rose says:

    You are darn insightful Quizzi.

    Spicher’s bad luck to volunteer yardwork for an
    ungrateful farm owner who threw her under the bus.

    I was reminded yesterday, K/1 teacher and wife
    are at Plainview Rd near Cornelius.

    I don’t believe she threw her under the bus, that was all Frink, MCSO and then the bios.
    Interestingly the farm owner hired a lawyer but didn’t get her face on a flyer. The property was searched a few times, to my knowledge. Never matched the alleged timeline in the first place.

  27. Rose says:
    like the punitive damages.
    Yankee was still at work in Sept.
    Ritchie apparently asked all members of the executive team except her for work to do.
    imo Riddell omits her crom the exec list because she has an adversarial relationship with Staton and is impeachable.
    Oddly Riddell also omits Lt H Smith as someone he sought work from.
    That suggests he will be an adverse witness.

  28. Rose says:

    “So, it sounds like TH may have done her half hour stop at Skyline and Germantown”
    God help the loving mother who stops to change a diaper and comfort by the side of the road
    when Staton is the investigative supervisor. Her alienation from kiara’s mothering care was far, far from kiara’s best interests.

    Something to think about here- what deceptive person, criminal mastermind, tells LE that time and time again without altering it although being interrogated multiple hours by multiple persons at a time?

  29. Malty says:

    Staton This then that People can’t find enough wrongs to blame on the guy but the elephant in the room is stillt
    His investigation of what happened to Kyron Horman at Skyline school June 4 2010 And what PPS had to do with it So far not one of these complaints about Staton have said any thing about what really matters to me
    And should matter to his office and DA. And all of Portland
    It should have the bio parents really upset Recently I read DY said she was in constant contact Kaine is suppose to be also according to Kristin. With the investigation.
    Does anyone believe a child is gone or think it matters with all these people

    Malty, very valid point.

  30. thatkewlgirl says:

    Wish this law was here in Oregon, or nationwide…

    “Woman puts vulgar posts about ex-friend on Facebook, faces felony, police say”

    Kolka is charged with one count of unlawful posting of a message, punishable by up to two years in prison and a $5,000 fine. State law defines this crime as follows:

    (1) A person shall not post a message through the use of any medium of communication, including the internet or a computer, computer program, computer system, or computer network, or other electronic medium of communication, without the victim’s consent, if all of the following apply:
    (a) The person knows or has reason to know that posting the message could cause 2 or more separate noncontinuous acts of unconsented contact with the victim.
    (b) Posting the message is intended to cause conduct that would make the victim feel terrorized, frightened, intimidated, threatened, harassed, or molested.
    (c) Conduct arising from posting the message would cause a reasonable person to suffer emotional distress and to feel terrorized, frightened, intimidated, threatened, harassed, or molested.
    (d) Conduct arising from posting the message causes the victim to suffer emotional distress and to feel terrorized, frightened, intimidated, threatened, harassed, or molested.

    *snip – more at link*

    I think if this law was in force in Oregon, certain page owners and bio parents would be seeing the inside of courtrooms and jails… And not just for what they’ve done to Terri Horman… just sayin’

  31. Rose says:

    While Skyline is in the County not City, there was freely available online in 2010-11 an Interagency Agreement, a contract, between PPS, PPB, (& MCSO tho I’m weaker on that memory) giving PPB sole jurisdiction over crimes on PPS’ property wherever located geographically. The entire point of the contract was to assign jurisdiction in nonCity schools to PPB. At some later point, say by 2013, that contract disappeared from internet searches.

    I recall a single media account saying PPB waived jurisdiction, but I could never substantiate it independently.

    wrt “MockingbirdSings says:
    February 26, 2016 at 3:15 pm”

    Absolutely agree behaviour
    could fit a sensory integration
    or frontal lobe (exec functioning) deficit.

    CARD (Staton present) suggests Tanner
    was the leadership boy whom Kyron had done a bunk with
    outdoors previously, and Gran put him on air defensively.

    I want to correct something- even though it was originally based on a verified source- it was their interpretation. Kyron’s out of class sojourn did not put him outside. Kyron and his class cohort were playing in the bathroom- (not Tanner.)

  33. Rose says:

    that is, a child acutely sensorily defensive would
    absolutely have had a hard time with SF crowds,
    school noise decibel raise, strangers and movement,
    and so on. If he was an SI kid, taking a walk was
    an adequate theory, say for 3 hrs til he was spotted at a roadside.

    Opposed to that sensory integration theory is
    1) he had no history of being a runner (slipping out with 1 kid once does not equal a runner).
    2) previous 2.5 years of talent shows and school events did not precipitate running.
    He’d apparently appeared in other school “shows” without fleeing.

  34. MockingbirdSings says:

    Frustrating article about a shooting near an elementary school in PPS – and the details about what security measures (cameras, door access) the district says it has no money for now, and apparently no plans to look for any funds. They don’t seem to be taking this very seriously, but IMO, they never did. It’s not even the same people in charge – it’s the culture of the district that doesn’t change.

    Portland Public Schools has heard Tawney’s request for another security camera at King Elementary. A district spokeswoman told KATU News there are already three cameras on the campus, but there are none on the north side of the school pointing in the direction of where two of the shootings have occurred.

    The school district’s director of security told concerned parents there in the fall that there isn’t money for the camera now, and cited the school’s equity policy.

    “The equity policy should say these kids’ security takes priority. They’re in a neighborhood with challenges. And so to have a reasonable learning situation, their security should come first,” Tawney said.

    A spokeswoman for Portland Public Schools told KATU News on Friday the district is looking into installing a camera on the north side of the school. However, the director of facilities emailed Letha Tawney, also on Friday, and told her there’s no money for cameras, or door access systems, anywhere in the district this year. He wrote funding is requested in the next budget for door access at schools across the district, but “beyond that funding effort we have no current plans or funding to install camera systems anywhere in the District.”

    Portland Public Schools and Portland police have increased their presence at King Elementary school for now. The director of security for PPS was at the school both Friday morning and afternoon, and a district spokeswoman said the district has hired a private security company to patrol around the campus.

    She also said Portland police moved a school resource officer from another school to King on Friday. Both the private security company and the school resource officer will watch over King all next week, and possibly longer.

  35. Rose says:

    @mbs. actually, you’re right; there’d probably never been the daytime chaos–with adults but no parent present–of his time at Skyline. Once he found himself outdoors, he could’ve kept on walking. Then been afraid of getting in trouble and kept walking. Or an auditory processing kid, which could explain classroom “inattention” could’ve been overwhelmed at the noise. It is a shame mcso Staton’s first thought was search search search (OT) rather than going down several tracks simultaneously in investigative teams each working a different theory rather than one team of investigators. His staff probably knew even then he was not someone you want to question or give bad news to.

    I think Staton’s use of CARD was sound and in my view is a window to the fact parallel avenues of investigation were being pursued.

  36. Rose says:

    If the entire command staff ostracized Ritchie in exile as alleged, Kafoury needs
    to look outside mcso for the next Sheriff candidate. Then the Commissioners need to offer
    targeted retirement bonuses to induce the top echelon to retire.

  37. Rose says:

    informative correction, thank you!

    Most welcome.

  38. Rose says:

    which makes “walking off” as
    weird a theory as Ms Porter’s explanations

  39. Rose says:

    that new Innocence Project in Portland should scrub
    all Frink’s cases back a few decades, esp the
    ones someone with a low IQ plea bargained with the
    assistance of a “not Houze” defense counsel.

  40. Rose says:

    Bet that big bucks raise Smith got, not to
    mention the raises she then gave administerators
    reporting to her, would buy lots of cameras.

  41. Rose says:

    @Malty. Jacquiss will probably get to the elephant.
    Maybe Terri’s giving him an interview too.

    So far the complaints have been from 3 females,
    plus Ritchie, and it coukd be Staton had been unhappy with
    his EA performance for some time. That “audit” had some inflammatory
    tabulation but otherwise was weak imo. (Having only typed at former
    Gen. Accting Office, so no expert.) I noticed at one point Ritchie said it was to
    address use of force in Enforcement & Corrections, but only Corrections was
    in the first draft.

  42. A Texas Grandfather says:


    Your post about the school not having funds for security cameras makes me laugh. They have the money. If it were for athletics they would find the funds. Schools like a lot of government agencies are always looking for an excuse to get more money, instead of learning how to manage what they actually have.

  43. Rose says:

    @ATG Now that sounds like a characterization of our Sheriff Staton.
    We know it was not his Business head who got him in a budget
    predicament once again; her prudence got her figuratively canned, she said.

  44. Malty says:

    Nigel Jacquiss You think ?

    Well I guess I better wait for Blink and her interview and updated info

    O/T the run for President has got me watching hours a day But I really want the investigation of Kyron Horman
    Reviewed. And Staton called out. His office crew complaining Happens Everywhere. Name calling Bully
    Anyone who work for a employer runs into that. Sooner or later

  45. Malty says:

    @ Truth. O/T Christie is just plain like able. Like comfortable shoes LOL. Some one else has me very disappointed Oh well….. :) I

  46. Malty says:

    Back to the mean supervisor Not every body gets upset in these conditions Some can handle it just fine and even .advance No one likes being shunned or put down Called fat But some just know how to get the job done
    Despite the conditions Lets just find out what went on at Skyline with Kyron Horman Why is he missing
    What mistakes were made How can improvements can be made And most of all find Kyron and protect our children

  47. Malty says:

    If Staton can not do his job and motivate others to do theirs Then he needs to get trained or go bye bye
    And get some one who can do the job and motivate others

  48. Rose says:

    The heart of things with Staton is he was violating the law but going to blame it on those suing him.
    The fat stuff was just the fun stuff so Riddell could develop outside allies. It is against the law to go
    over budget. He was doing so against Yankee’s advice. (She told him Troutdale would cause that
    all by itself.) But he told her he woukd blame her when that happened. That is why she found a
    reason to go on medical leave til April (when the new budget is presented to Commissioners.) Only
    way out of being blamed. Disproportionate use of force violates Federal law. The other 2 ladies had
    to leave or that’s an inmate class action in which they coukd be among the named since their IG hid
    their report in the Sheriff’s underground bunker. And for Elliott too it was onky a matter of time before
    Staton found something to write him up for, whatever duties he had. If he’d not retired, he risked hus LE
    credentials and pension with this employee. He was smart to lock the PERS in before Sheriff Vindictive
    found something work-related to charge him with and de-credential him.

    Staton’s unstable behavior with these 4 employees, and tge men who covered up for him–Smith, Gates, Riser, and Shults–has likely affected every aspect of the Hormon investigation for over 5 years. Think of it–Staton has
