Officials with 118th District Court say child pornography allegedly found on a computer confiscated as part of the missing person investigation of 13-year-old Hailey Dunn haven't yet been submitted to their office, the next step in the prosecutorial process.
“I'm not sure which agency recovered the alleged evidence, but I'm sure the computer has been handed over to federal or state law enforcement by now,” District Attorney Hardy Wilkerson said Tuesday. “However, until the evidence and a report is handed over to our office, there's nothing we can do to prosecute the alleged crime. It also depends whether or not the feds want it.”
Investigators into the disappearance of the Colorado City teen have claimed to have found evidence of child pornography on a computer used by Shawn Adkins — the only “person of interest” named in the case.
