Kaine Horman Honored in Sacramento

Kaine's ongoing assistance in helping other families with missing children has earned him the "Honorary Social Worker of the Year"award on Sunday, April 1, during National Child Abuse Prevention Month opening ceremonies at the day long celebration’s Leadership Luncheon, being held at Sunrise Event Center according to ABC News.

While never giving up on the search for Kyron, Kaine has also taken a proactive approach in reaching out to other families with missing children as well. Having been through the same experience, his assistance to them is both beneficial and supportive. Specifically, Kaine is being recognized for ""the courageous stand he has taken for families in crisis, focusing his pain in a positive, pro-active direction."

Sacramento’s April 1st opening ceremony events kicks off a 50 state campaign which aims to use the four week period as a foundation for building a more comprehensive and cohesive system of care nation wide. One that includes public-private sector partnerships which help plug the holes our children continue to fall through.

Getting Away With Murder?

There is a lot of speculation out there regarding the disappearance of Kyron Horman, there are also a lot of questions regarding Terri, her whereabouts and actions as well. However, putting all the speculation aside we must ask how Terri simply pleading the 5th has successfully kept the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office from charging her with any crimes. This is the burning question, with what appears to be a pretty decent amount of evidence, even circumstantial, why are they sitting on it?

Murder For Hire
Let's take a look at what we do know starting with the murder for hire plot which basically comes down to a case of he said she said. Since the failed attempt at a wire where Terri effectively shutdown the conversation with the landscaper immediately, it comes down to his word against hers. Whether the prosecution found the landscaper's testimony uncredible or didn't feel they had enough is hard to tell, but in any case they have apparently chosen to drop it.

Precedent - Charging & Convicting Without A Body
Although convictions without a body are rare, they aren't unheard of. In many cases they've found evidence matching the victim, in this case Kyron was riding in a family vehicle so that can obviously be ruled out. However, cases with seemingly less circumstantial evidence have been successfully prosecuted and won, such as the case of David Schubert, convicted 2002 for murdering his wife. Or Katherine Rutan convicted of first-degree murder in the death of her 6-year-old son, in an eerily similar case where she took him into the woods and returned without him. In both cases, no body was ever found.

Though it appears the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office is doing everything they can, many searches, due diligence, task forces, etc. we are still left to wonder why they have chosen not to charge Terri with what may be circumstantial, but also seemingly overwhelming evidence. Is there a DA who won't touch it, if so why not? There is little doubt that those who have worked tirelessly in this case have endured their fair share of frustration as well but the Sheriffs office shares some culpability by choosing not to act.

Terri's Double Life

As the ongoing investigation nears it's first anniversary in the search for answers in Kyron's disappearance, overwhelming evidence shows that Terri Horman has been leading a double life. According to Kaine Horman the list of questions about Terri's past keep growing and much of what investigators are asking him to corroborate he had no idea of.

The investigation continues to dredge on, but seemingly at a much slower pace. When asked if he thought they had enough evidence to convict Terri, Kaine said "I'll say 'no.'

Desiree Young Attempts to Bring Interest Back to Terri Horman


On Saturday Desiree Young traveled to Roseburg and is asking the local community to put pressure on Terri Horman asking "Where is Kyron?". Posting signs on street corners and speaking with media Young says police have informed her of written clues from Terri Horman herself that detail her disdain for Kyron. She says the clues blame the boy for Terri Horman’s failing marriage to Kyron’s father.

Multnomah County Sheriff Dan Staton will brief commissioners on the search for missing Portland boy Kyron Horman and the state of the investigation next week. Unless there is something breaking, it's unlikely that anything new will be said.

Search Continues Today on Skyline Drive and Dixie Mountain Road

They say they have specific reasons for searching this location. From Oregonlive:

The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office resumes the search for Kyron Horman Sunday. A team of about 40-50 law enforcement officials and a half-dozen dogs will investigate specific areas around Skyline Drive and Dixie Mountain Road.

"Weather conditions prevented the searching of these two locations a month or six weeks ago because of the snow up there, and dogs are not effective when it's below 40 degrees," said Multnomah County Sheriff's Sgt. Keith Krafve, a supervisor of the Kyron Horman Task Force.
