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.

    @Blink. Well all Ellen’s special agent in charge & former Sheriff specialist Dave Kirby has to do is program blinkoncrime into his digital social media public fishing line of survelliance for plenty of comment about criminal public corruption in Oregon, or get a job over at the Federal DOJ and eavesdrop.

  2. Rose says:

    Rosenblum needs fo take a lesson from Kathleen Kane who swept out plenty of special investigators and attorneys, tho they are getting even with tort suits and criminal jeopardy, but at least plenty are gone for good. It took a Sandusky. Maybe no one wants to find that associated with Skyline.

    Is the Yankee interview missing from the Gray-Loughary documents?

    Her agreement precluded her availability for an interview

  4. Rose says:

    missing from interviews: Marshman, her auditor, Ott, the apparently former Inspector being replaced by Moore, anyone present with Heilbrun, Gates, Reiser, Moore, Eliot.

    Still reading along. I’m always fascinated by what you all come up with.

    In regards to events and silent auctions the Portland Comminity is very generous. Our PTO just raised over $6000 based on donated items from our community.

  6. Meg says:

    Out of curiosity I don’t think I’ve seen this mentioned but does Kiara get any court ordered counseling?

    I can only say that the opportunity is provided for in her parents stipulation agreement.

  7. Meg says:

    Also out of curiosity (I think I may have asked before but forget) how closely has Kaine and his associates been investigated? Kaine would have known Terri the ild have his white truck how many of his friends drove a trucks similar to his?

    I would say that in my opinion Kaine et al has not undergone anywhere near the scrutiny TMH has.

    Happy Mother’s Day weekend Blink and Blinksters! The weather is just perfect here and though I am doing a juice cleanse (which means my special day will sadly not involve food)just having my children with me helping with yard work as their gift, will be perfect. I hope you all also have a wonderful weekend.

    Hi T. Ruth. Just want to give some insight into the story you linked. The author of that piece did not vet who Tyler’s mom is as can be seen in the comments on the piece so poor reporting there. Also, she has listed some other children in the area who have gone missing. Many, perhaps all, of those children are in the ‘system’ and frequently run. Most have already been found and likely ran again so here the author made a correlation that is unfounded. Again, poor reporting. That said, I do believe Tyler’s disappearance is suspicious and many people are very worried for him.

    It’s been too long since little Kyron has disappeared. His sweet little person deserved so much better. I hope someday justice is served, for those of us who have prayed for him all these years, but mostly so that his little soul can be at rest.

    All the best.

    Happy Mom’s Day and glad to hear of your weather- something like our 10th day of rain here and no end in site- but my peas are in the pod this weekend so all is right with my world on that front. Echo your wishes and those for Kyron.

    It is up to Rod Underhill DA, who has professional investigators, to opine on the quality and satisfactory content and conclusions, or not, of Wm Gray’s (under Loughary & Kirk, & Acting M Slauson, & Ellen) rather than Kafoury to do so. Because its his area of expertise. But I get that Rod, Richard and his wife, are all likely paddling the same canoe as Ellen and Kate, and just grateful Kitz didn’t sink theirs.

    Any Mothers Day pasta NelMel?

  11. Rose says:

    Just observing that TMH inadvertantly omitted from
    her kind inclusive list of women who serve children the category of
    regular (as broader than new) mothers, and perhaps
    that’s because she was one and her child was wrested away by mcso and their collaborators, and because another not-new mother has been her persecutor in chief. I think for TMH to comment anywhere will send soldiers ballistic. I hope the BOC interview is being held for a higher timing purpose to her family’s benefit.

  12. Rose says:

    According to this, Gray interviewed Yankee on April 6th.

    So would that mean that she is the confidential source? I write investigative reports for a living- such a deficient mess reflects on the “same old” there.

  13. Rose says:

    Yankee, Ott, Lnstrand, Staton, & others should’ve been interviewed by subpoena under oath.
    Bet any OR grand jurors would’ve reached apt conclusions.
    imo Underhill punted.

  14. Rose says:

    wrtbchild counseling.
    in my limited experience such doesn’t happen unless one
    gets a judge to explicitly order it, not merely provide the option.
    1) some custodial parents don’t want to pay their 50% so don’t medically authorize;
    2) parents (the custodial parent) may fear a child’s prattling might
    embed a kernal taken against them,
    3) someone as allegedly as authoritarian as Bell imo would
    not refer out & risk another “professional ‘voice’ theoretically
    conflicting with her “programme” of “reunification.”

    Terri, Wishing you Mother’s Peace Day, how this day was originally intended.

    The Original Mother’s Day Proclamation

    Arise, all women who have hearts, whether your baptism be that of water or of tears! Say firmly: “We will not have great questions decided by irrelevant agencies, our husbands shall not come to us, reeking with carnage, for caresses and applause.

    “Our sons shall not be taken from us to unlearn all that we have been able to teach them of charity, mercy and patience. We women of one country will be too tender of those of another country to allow our sons to be trained to injure theirs.”

    From the bosom of the devastated earth a voice goes up with our own. It says, “Disarm, disarm! The sword is not the balance of justice.” Blood does not wipe out dishonor nor violence indicate possession.

    As men have often forsaken the plow and the anvil at the summons of war, let women now leave all that may be left of home for a great and earnest day of counsel. Let them meet first, as women, to bewail and commemorate the dead. Let them then solemnly take counsel with each other as to the means whereby the great human family can live in peace, each learning after his own time, the sacred impress, not of Caesar, but of God.

    In the name of womanhood and of humanity, I earnestly ask that a general congress of women without limit of nationality may be appointed and held at some place deemed most convenient and at the earliest period consistent with its objects, to promote the alliance of the different nationalities, the amicable settlement of international questions, the great and general interests of peace.

    Julia Ward Howe

    Her best known credit was poem the Battle Hymn of the Republic. That first line of water or of tears, made me think of you. It was inspired by war, which we know you are in and the desire for peace which we hope you get. Godspeed to you.

    IDK, but I took it as she was just making sure *the rest of us” got recognition. Not being fortunate enough to be a bio-mom, but being a stepmom and grandma-step of many, not to mention the favorite aunt and Godmother to more, I think I got where she was coming from.

    Sometimes the best mother figure in some child’s life is even an aunt, or a grandma. God Bless all of them who are there for the children. Happy Mother’s Day!

    So glad to see you again, Amys Sis. Happy Mother’s Day to you too. I hope Tyler is found soon, his case sounds ominous to me, not suicidal. This whole world is getting more scary each day. A garden is my bliss. Spent a lot of time out there today, lovely weather, although a little warmer in the afternoon than I would have liked. And we actually fired up the bbq this evening. About a month earlier than usual.

    Haven’t read all the docs yet, but it sounds to me like the Oregon DOJ is in need of the first overhaul.

    I mean, after reading about the DOJ attorneys sleeping (or faking sleep, whateveh) during trial, good grief, WTH? Now what sounds like (from Rose’s snips) a thoroughly un-thorough investigation of the Sheriff and his management just puts the ODOJ in a ridiculously bad light. Sounds like the ODOJ can’t be counted upon to investigate anything in a non-partisan or fair manner. Good grief, what is going on in Salem? OMG, Salem witch hunts? (Scary thought, that.)


    O/T and is probably posted on the Penn State threads, but did ya’ll see the news about some court filings alleging Paterno knowing about Sandusky abusing a child in the 70′s? Years and years. How many more victims are out there, or is it were?

  21. A Texas Grandfather says:

    Thanks for the link to the investigation Rose.

    This is a big nothing burger. Taking someone’s word that they did not use a LE only tool is pure foolishness. Why not access the log-ins by the various people under investigation into the LEDS data base? There should be a complete list of who was on the system minute by minute of any day during the period along with a record of the files actually opened. If not, there is zero audit trail of the program and its use.

    It is almost Mothers Day again. Mothers are the most important parent in the creation of a family and its early nurture. Mothers are not limited to that of a bio parent and represent all who fit the role.

    Mrs. ATG received a dozen pale orange roses with dark almost red edges on the petals. A virtual dozen to all the moms on this site.

    Those are beautiful!! And thank you!
    (lol @ nothing burger)


  22. Rose says:

    the problem of this & probably other ODOJ criminal investigations is likely not the partisan or fair issue but a criminal law competency issue. ODOJ investigators are on the front lines from low level & rural local LE backgrounds, not even OSP, and lack basic training & educated supervision imo. looks like a good ol boys hiring network. supervisors should have law degrees.

  23. Rose says:

    I appreciate her sentiments TRuth, and wish we could hear her interview, but trust Blink. and wish those who have stood between her and her children would get a conscience and step aside….Kaine, Rackner, Engel, Kantor, Bell, New Mommy, Underhill/Rees, and so on. best wishes to her parents.

  24. Rose says:

    btw it appears Mickelson’s hands were so full with
    her own childrens’ significant needs, imo she should
    never have interloped in baby k’s life–altho it put
    a roof over her chikdrens’ heads.

  25. Rose says:

    why does he have 4 stars & 4 stripes?

    Desiree put some very nice garden pics up on her followers’ FB sites.

  26. Rose says:

    kudos to mr & mrs ATG.

    One document “interview” was with a govt IT employee who allegedly checked LED access
    during the period for a list of users. I believe it was a googled product, but the OAG shoukd’ve gone for
    charging to attempt to make OR caselaw that organized searches by LE personnel while on the job and in
    the course of their for ANY purpose in the absence of suspicion of a crime is illegal in the State.

    If Staton wanted bios, his Secretary (oops I mean his Chief Deputy Mary over IT and Budget), should have shot off
    emails to the list of committee members requesting bios from them, not wasted taxpayers time and money. Who runs
    an office that way.

  27. Rose says:

    Ellen R is the polar opposite of an aggressive State AG.
    She’s not out to make law. She falls in the Thomas-Scalia

    @erose, thanks for the history lesson. Loved it.

    Way back in the 50′s, my mother clipped little poems about children from magazines and put them in our baby books. This one is one of my very favorites, she knew this one by heart and would say it under her breath when we were *pushing her buttons*. LOL

    And they shall guard our feet from any wandering,

    And we must keep them whole, though we be



    Just thought I’d share this with all our mothers out there today.

    Does anyone know if/how this Intel ‘strategic overhaul’ affects KH?

  32. A Texas Grandfather says:

    Since when was it the responsibility of a State AG to make law? They are tasked with interpreting the law as well as doing investigations.

    I agree with Rose. All State AG investigators should have a law degree.

    They should also be taught about the various computer systems in use as information and aids to LE. This should include learning about the tracking tools generally available for audit. If audit tools are not available, the IT professionals should be called on to aid in getting information. This means one or two well trained experts in security and computer forensics.

    Having worked with several small county sheriff’s departments in Texas, I can say that most small departments do not have but one or two who have the education to do quality investigations. General patrol is their job which does not require a college degree.

  33. Rose says:

    Arguably, under existing Oregon law, targeted google searches for personal information of a State-legislature -appointed County Charter review committee, a task mandated by law, by a Chief Deputy in a County Sheriff’s Dept, acting under a Sheriff’s order on the job as an employment duty, where there is no suspicion of any committee member commiting a crime, could easily be construed as a statutory violation.

    I do not recall the Statute specified an “LED” search only. Ellen chose not to make that charge and argument. Had she done so, case law about the statute would have advanced in OR, garden variety stuff, and the Legislature could let their illwritten Statute stand or rewrite it to guide in future similar circumstances.

    That would not be making law on Ellen’ AG’s part, but enforcing the Constitutional spirit of a poorly written Statute. The AG’s job is Statute enforcement; not Ellen’s forte apparently.

  34. Rose says:

    @ATG Got a laugh. Staton’s auditors are gone with the wind over to other County jobs.

  35. Rose says:

    here’s an analogy. Say a House Foreign Affairs Committee appoints a civilian ad hoc Benghazi investigatory committee whose sole work product is mandated by law to be policy recommendations for State, CIA, NSA, and their contractors as to how to reform their agencies–and take away Agency Director’s unilateral powers– to prevent future military-diplomatic imbroglios abroad. The former Sec of State, now the CIA head, must testify to the committee, and tasks her chief of staff to access any publically available internet site and prepare an informative dossier on each committee member. The hypothetical catch would be a Federal statute prohibits such intelligence gathering on US soil or without a reasonable suspicion of criminal activity. Then the CIA Director meets with committee members, waves her bio dossiers, and says I’ve done my work on you. Imo that is a threat.

  36. Rose says:

    here’s the OR LEDS Statute re access to OR LE data bases:
    Apparently that’s all the OrAG was evaluating

    illegal social media surveillance in Ellen’s own agency:

    The problem appears to be the investigator oroduced a written report. Otherwise it coukd’ve been swept under the rug.
    Staton was an interim Sheriff until mid-May 2010. The abduction was like a kick-start to his command & control, took the Commissioners’ eyes off the jail OT for a few years, and garnered big bucks for mcso and its employees thru an undisputable good cause.
    Skipper had 4 stars and 4 stripes in 2009 retirement pic. Guess that’s the uniform.
    “I will be this week or next week, in the history of the Republican Party, nobody has ever gotten so many votes as I have. I’ve beaten Eisenhower and Nixon and Reagan and everybody..”

  37. Rose says:

    They do not agree the “pay no attention to the man behind the green curtain” is working- some would say in spite of DOJ “findings- ( and let me be plain – I am not proud of my colorful quiver of analogies at times- but in this case “findings” is accompanied by a flashlight and a paper bag.)

    I truly feel for these professionals that are trying to do the job in which they were sworn.

  38. Rose says:

    Patrol Deputies nailed it, tho Staton never had transparency or accountability:

    “Sheriff Staton has lost sight of our community’s demands for transparency and accountability,” he said in Monday’s statement. “We no longer have confidence in his ability to lead our agency.”

  39. Rose says:

    So why do Kyron’s parents have such confidence in Staton’s ship?

    Do they?
    Should be interesting in the next few weeks.

  40. Rose says:

    beautifully written:

    easy to see why Kaine “fell into line” and Terri and Spicher became Staton’s prosecution targets.

  43. erose says:

    o/t TRuth, The question of Paterno’s (and others) knowledge of Sandusky’s crimes was subject for lots of fodder on Blink’s Sandusky threads. There was a man who claimed he had once been traded around at Penn State by the likes of Eddie Savitz. After reading another one of his accounts, he said something to the effect that this rings of pedophiles would straighten up when Paterno was in the room. Whether that means Paterno never knew, or knew and didn’t approve is the question. Seems now there is a victim from the ’70′s and Paterno knew, not hard to believe, but I hope the alleged victim is properly vetted as these cash payouts are incentives to fabricate. Then there is the question of Ray Gricar’s disappearance having something to do with the case against Sandusky that he did not prosecute. Bottomline, IMO, did Sandusky fool all of the people all of the time? Hard to believe he did.

  44. A Texas Grandfather says:

    Thank you Rose for the kudos. When you get to be our age, every day of life is a gift. Mrs. ATG loves roses. I have been giving them to her at Mothers Day, birthdays and at other important times for many,many years. I try to buy something different each time.

    Thanks for the link to the Portland Tribune article about the no-confidence vote. This may be the beginning of the end for the Sheriff. The next thing is for the voters to get busy and find someone to replace him that has proper training and leadership skills. After the sheriff, they need to examine the courts and those sitting on the bench along with the County District Attorneys.

    “We the People” have been lax in giving the proper attention to our legislative and judicial systems at every level for the last forty or fifty years. The American people are a patient people regarding government. We would much prefer that our government people be true to their duties and not attempt to attack the people. The time has come for all of us to get back in the business of watching for bad choices and behaviors and then doing something to make corrections.

  45. Rose says:

    Holy crapola, how much more could one throw at him without him stepping down? Foolish if he does not. There are some extremely damning words coming from this union. It also leads me to believe that there is someone quite high-up in his department who is talking and very, very unhappy with the status-quo.


    Sheriff Staton leads *ruthlessly and unpredictably through fear and favoritism, threatening to fire those in his way, yet rewarding those who get in line*. He has fostered an environment of hostility, where those who constructively criticize his actions are met with retaliation, threats, and name-calling. His reckless leadership style has resulted in *hundreds of thousands of dollars in wasted taxpayer monies paid to remedy his recklessness; funds which instead could have been spent to protect our community*.

    *True to form, our attempts to constructively address his failed leadership were met with threats. Sheriff Staton likens dealing with his law enforcement deputies as “worse than dealing with a bunch of criminals.”* And he has suggested that cooperation from our organization would lead to our President’s promotion to a higher rank, whereas our pursuit of accountability through a no-confidence vote would be met with him “slapping us in the face.”

    Sheriff Staton has lost sight of our community’s demands for transparency and accountability. We no longer have confidence in his ability to lead our agency.

    My goodness, Dan, step down already. If he does not, is the next move a recall, since he is an elected official? If so, I’m pretty sure someone has started the paperwork.
