According to law enforcement authorities, more pornography ? including child pornography ? has been found on devices used by Shawn Adkins, the only named suspect in the disappearance of Colorado City teenager Hailey Dunn.
According to search warrant affidavits acquired Friday by KTXS through the Freedom of Information Act, a warrant used by law enforcement in Scurry County on Thursday was specifically intended to look for more child pornography on computers, discs and other digital devices Adkins has been using.
The affidavits stated that pornography has been found on a second computer that Adkins used ? and on his personal cell phone.
These findings were made before search warrants were executed Thursday, when law enforcement officers seized more devices.
The files containing the pornography had been deleted but were recovered by law enforcement experts in computer and digital forensics.
According to the affidavit, law enforcement believes that Adkins was in possession of child pornography, namely visual material like photographs and video footage.
The affidavit confirms earlier reports by KTXS that child pornography was found on a computer at the home of Adkins' mother, where Adkins had access to the computer, and on a memory stick in the home of Hailey Dunn in Colorado City.
In the "slack space," or the area of the computer where items had been deleted, the FBI found images of child pornography and other obscene images including adult pornography, deviant sexual behavior and bestiality, according to the affidavit.
The affidavit details that pornographic images were found among deleted e-mail files on Adkins' cell phone and on a computer in the home of Renee Norwood, Adkins' grandmother.
Adkins lived with his grandmother in the community of Dunn, 14 miles north of Colorado City, after he was named a suspect in the Hailey Dunn disappearance in early January. At the time of Hailey's disappearance, Adkins was the live-in boyfriend of Billie Dunn, Hailey's mother.
Adkins' grandmother's home in southern Scurry County is the same home where investigators served the warrant Thursday and took electronic devices. Another resident of that home told authorities that Adkins used the computer "all the time," according to the affidavit.
The warrant also mentions that two Kodak Easy Share cameras were in the home, and that some of the pornographic images were taken or transmitted via a Kodak Easy Share camera. Investigators planned to seize the two cameras, among the many other devices, looking for more evidence.
The warrant, issued by District Judge Ernie Armstrong in Scurry County, gave law enforcement the right to take cameras, cell phones, computers, printers and other devices that may contain child pornography.
J. Bruce Flournoy, a deputy with the Garza County Sheriff's Office and computer forensics expert, requested the warrant.
In the affidavit, he stated that pornographic images had been found on every electronic device connected to Adkins that law enforcement has been able to search.
Adkins, according to the affidavit, doesn't own a computer and has been using friends' and relatives' computers. All of the other users of those computers, according to the affidavit, deny any knowledge of child pornography on their devices.
Another warrant was issued, out of Howard County, but the judge in that case refused to release the search warrant affidavits to the media although FOI requests were made. That warrant is believed to have been for the "body" of Adkins, meaning it was most likely served to obtain DNA evidence.
When that warrant was served, according to documents filed in Mitchell County, Billie Dunn, the mother of the missing teen, reportedly lied about the whereabouts of Adkins.
She was arrested and has since been arraigned and has been released on a $6,500 bond for the three misdemeanors she was held on.
