COLORADO CITY — Billie Dunn, mother of missing Colorado City teen Hailey Dunn, was booked into the Mitchell County Jail on Thursday on misdemeanor charges for obstruction of justice and possession of drugs.
Dunn was taken into custody by authorities at her Colorado City home Thursday evening on charges of hindering apprehension and prosecution, possession of dangerous drugs and making a false report to police officers. All three charges are misdemeanors.
According to officials involved in the investigation, members of the Texas Rangers were attempting to serve a search warrant on the only person of interest in the case — Billie Dunn's former live-in boyfriend, Shawn Adkins — when Dunn allegedly lied about his whereabouts.
