Shawn Adkins remains the only named suspect in the case of missing teen Hailey Dunn. His attorney told KTXS News Thursday that since the discovery Tuesday of human remains in Big Spring, Adkins has made himself available to law enforcement.
"I'm not comfortable disclosing his exact location and partly for his own safety as well," said attorney Alex Eyssen.
Adkins has had an intimate relationship with Hailey's mother Billie Dunn on-and-off the last four years, but he was living in the Dunn house when Hailey went missing.
About 40 miles to the west, Adkins' mother lives in Big Spring within a mile or two of where the remains were found.
Affidavits that KTXS obtained last year revealed that Adkins told authorities that he went to his mother's house on Dec. 27, 2010, the day that Hailey Dunn disappeared.
"I don't believe it implicates him in any way," said Eyssen. "While it's awful any human remains would be discovered so closely to anyone's residence. It does not implicate my client in any manner."
Eyssen told KTXS it's unfortunate the public is not affording his client the presumption of innocence.
