KYRON Horman: Anorak’s look at the missing child in the news:

Kyron disappeared from Skyline Elementary on June 4, 2010. A month later, law enforcement informed the boy’s father, Kaine Hormah, they had uncovered an attempt by Terri Horman, his wife and Kyron’s step-mother, to hire a hitman to kill him. That led to Kaine deciding he wanted a divorce. No plot was ever proven.

In the days after the child vanished, Terri was seen with her friend DeDe Spicher. The police noticed.

DeDe Spicher has spoken to Blink On Crime . Spicher is the woman media have sought to implicate in a crime by dint of her  association with Terri, who has not been charged with any offence and maintains her innocence. Christina Stoy writes:

DeDe Spicher…revealed that after over 3 years of attempting to provide Multnomah County Sheriffs Office as well as Assistant Deputy Attorney Norm Frink with the necessary information they requested to clear her from any suspicion in the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of Skyline second grader Kyron Horman; she has finally been cleared after passing a polygraph as part of her requirement under an immunity deal that has been sealed with the court. Unofficially cleared, that is.

Spicher and her attorney Chad Stavley, who have since refused all local media requests, would very much like the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office and current District Attorney Rod Underhill to clear her officially and publicly.

Odd, indeed, that you have to clear your name when you have been charged with no crime, let alone stood trial. But long ago the disappearance of Kyron Horman became a witch hunt. With only one fact to go on the child vanished and no idea what crime if any befell him, the police have been allowing the media to apply pressure on Mrs Horman, the last person we know to have seen him. Her friendship with Spicher has come under intense media scrutiny.

Highlights of the interview are:

Spicher : At first, I think that they [police] really believed I was involved, and at some point I think they were talking more “accessory after the fact” because I got the impression ( although they did not share it with me) that Terri’s cell phone activity that day was nowhere near where I was, and my vehicle never left, nor did I…

Stoy : So in your opinion, you were clearly the linchpin of this case, they [LE] believed you held the key to solving it and/or implicating Terri exclusively at that point, they no longer entertained your involvement per se?

Spicher: I honestly don’t think I could say that I ever believed that they stopped treating me as some sort of suspect. I never felt that way, but yes, absolutely they 100% believe that Terri is responsible and I definitely believed we all had to be interviewed and scrutinized or whatever, but I really thought up until the meeting with Norm Frink that they [LE] would abandon that theory quickly because if they were positive I was the key, and I knew I was not, that would also eliminate Terri, who I did not and do not believe, but have no proof, was involved or knew anything.

The steroids?

Spicher : (laughs) touche’ . I was asked about it very vaguely in the beginning, I told them I had never used them, that I did not believe Terri ever did because she and I had similar views against using them and while we were on different supplement regimens when I was training for a marathon in 2008 I still remembered her to be knowledgeable about legal and effective nutritional supplements. I had no reason to believe she had ever used any kind of steroids. I can’t say conclusively she never did but it would shock me.

Stoy : Why shock you?

Spicher: Because a few years back I recall Terri telling me that Kaine was what she referred to as “juicing” and that his behavior had become very aggressive and well, impatient or overeactive with the kids and she had discussed it with him and he ignored her.

He had taken steroids, illegal ones? Do we see any evidence to back that up that claim? No. Stoy alleges that some police use illegal steroids. This is no big shocker. But can a clear link between them and Kaine be made? No. She does not establish one.

Spicher : She said that Kaine had been aggressive with her and impatient with the children and she attributed that to his “juicing”. She confronted him and she felt he did not listen to her. She told me that she then called a detective and turned in Kaine’s seller. The member at the gym, I used to know the name but I really can’t recall because I was in the early morning crowd and this guy was more afternoon, I presume when they were there or they saw him. I had stopped going to the same gym as them ater the first year or two I met them there.

Spicher : …Kaine had skeletons in his own closet sort of thing. She told her lawyer [Houze] and she said he instructed her to bring the syringes and the cancelled checks to his office. We did.

The allegation that she hired the gardener to kill Kaine Horman which led to a failed police sting:

Spicher : No, she told me she had no idea who was responsible for Kyron’s disappearance or why, and the only possibility she came up with after the fact because of his past behavior and the fact that he showed up at her door
