Kyron Horman: A Year Of Bad Policing, A Witch Hunt And No News

by | 21st, June 2011

KYRON Horman is missing. Still missing. The police have yet to establish is a crime befell the child. This is Anorak’s round up of news on the boy who went missing from his Portland, Oregon school on June 4, 2010.

The Story So Far

This weekend marked the one year anniversary of the disappearance of Kyron Horman, the Oregon boy last seen on June 4, 2010. While his parents cling to the hope that he is still alive, police are set to shut down the task force designed to find him. Kyron, who was seven years old when he vanished, was last seen at his school in Portland following a science fair by his step-mother, Terri Horman. She says she watched him walk off to his classroom. However, he never made it to class and no trace of him has been seen since.

Terri Horman has never been charged, although she is clearly the focus of the investigation. Terri and her husband Kaine Horman are now estranged. He filed for divorce following allegations that Terri tried to hire someone to kill him.

The Allegation

It’s been one year since Kyron Horman disappeared from his Portland area school, and his mom says she wants to keep the pressure on his stepmother.

“She [Terri Horman] did something to Kyron that day. She knows exactly what happened that day and what she did to him,” Desiree Young told CBS, speaking of Terri Horman, Kyron’s stepmother.

Terri Horman

Terri Horman is now living with her parents, Larry and Carol Moulton, on a quiet neighborhood street in Roseburg.
No one answered the door when a FOX 12 reporter stopped by the home. A sign posted on the front door refers all media questions to lawyer Stephen Houze, but Houze has continued to say he cannot comment on an open case.

Jeff Manley, a longtime friend to Larry and Carol Moulton, says he knows Terri Horman’s parents are suffering.

“The people and the neighborhood, mostly people’s sympathies are all for Mr. and Mrs. Moulton,” he said. “They feel very bad for them. They know them they’re good people.”
Manley said the community feels differently about Terri Horman. While she may have a history in the town, Manely thinks that’s where it ends.
“She’s been around here for a while, but she has her problems and people have forgotten about her, and there are different opinions about that,” said Manley, who lives in the same neighborhood as the Moultons. “But the support system around here is for her parents.”

The Police

A lead detective from the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office will continue to work full-time investigating the now yearlong disappearance of Kyron Horman with help from the FBI, state Department of Justice and county prosecutors.

But a formalized task force will disband as of July 1, Sheriff Dan Staton said Thursday. “We’re not going to call it a task force anymore,” Staton said. “If something breaks, then we’ll bring everybody back together.”
