Anorak | Kyron Horman: restraining the facts to make Terri Horman confess

Kyron Horman: restraining the facts to make Terri Horman confess

by | 28th, August 2013

KYRON Horman: Anorak’s look at the case of the missing child in the news. So far, there have been no arrests, no named suspects and no confirmation as to what crime, if any, befell the child who was aged 7 when he vanished in June 2010. Now read on…

The Oregonian reports: “Terri Horman agrees to limited evaluation for parenting time with daughter”

Helen Jung reports:

Terri Moulton Horman agrees with her estranged husband’s request that an expert should evaluate whether she should have any parenting time with the couple’s 4-year-old daughter, Kiara, court papers say.

But Horman, who has been a focus of the criminal investigation into the June 2010 disappearance of her stepson, Kyron, would seek limits on such an evaluation, her attorney Peter Bunch wrote in a filing earlier this month in the Hormans’ divorce case.

Police have not provided Terri Horman with information about their investigation, Bunch wrote, and she should not have to answer questions that could affect her constitutional rights.

Terri Horman was the last person known to have seen Kyron, her stepson. That single fact has been enough for the press to pursue a witch hunt against her, seemingly working at the police’s behest to do their dirty work: to apply enough pressure so that Terri Horman cracks and confesses. Only, she denies any involvement in the child’s vanishing. The police have nothing else. She has not been “a focus”. She has been the focus. As a result of monocular policing, the investigation has gone nowhere.

The Sheriff’s Office’s mouthpiece seems to be the Oregonian, in the person of Maxine Bernstein, who it appears, has rather exclusive access. She has been remarkably unequivocal in publishing whatever information she is given, without asking any particularly hard questions. Some of the articles and information published have been unquestionably ruinous to the reputations of Terri Horman andsome of her associates. Ms. Bernstein is conceivably comfortable doing this, based on First Amendment protections, and assurances that she has received solid information from the authorities

Our sources claim that Bernstein is being fed information supportive of Kaine and Kyron’s birth mother, Desiree Young, and ignoring documents from Terri Horman’s side. Moreover, it’s alleged that papers from Terri’s team are not filed in a timely fashion.

We do know for certain that stories in the Oregonian have been changed with no explanation as to why .

Helen Jung adds:

Still, she [Terri] supports the idea of reviewing possible ways she could see her daughter, the filing states. Kiara has been living exclusively with her father, Kaine Horman, for the past three years.

“Husband took it upon himself to essentially terminate Wife’s primary parental role with Kiara Horman,” the filing states. “Wife anticipates that an evaluation will support her contention that Husband’s actions were not in Kiara’s best interests.”

The filing comes about two weeks after Kaine Horman submitted his request asking the court to order an evaluation that investigates “the character, family relations and past conduct” of the two parents and for a mental health and psychological evaluation of Terri Horman.

“So far she has chosen her privilege against self-incrimination over a relationship with her daughter,” Kaine Horman’s lawyer, Brett Engel, wrote. “It is anticipated she will now seek to establish a relationship with Kiara. The risk of physical and/or emotional harm to Kiara is high.”

But there is not a shred of proof that Terri Horman would harm her child. To British readers steeped in libel laws the lawyer’s comments are egregious.

Gloves come off in Kaine & Terri Horman divorce

Those gloves were never on but if they were Kaine’s contained a horseshoe branded “Property of Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office”. When Kaine was told by police that Terri had hired a gardener to kill him seven months before the child vanished, the police set up a sting in which they were well and truly stung  (she called the police as the landscaper attempted to blackmail her). Oddly, Kaine was able to use this alleged murder plot to file divorce papers, a petition for a restraining order against his wife and take the couple’s then 19-month-old daughter.
