    Thanks IceQueen. Hopefully she cracks under pressure soon.

    And I agree Trixie, something about Kyron makes him deserve his specific name in the title, especially at this point. I'm all the way down the other side of the world and I'm concerned about him

    Kyron Horman's Family Boots WW and The Oregonian from Bizarre News Event | Willamette Week | Thursday, July 1st, 2010
    Kyron Horman’s Family Boots WW and The Oregonian from Bizarre News Event
    1:04 PM July 1st, 2010 by James Pitkin
    News / WW on WW | Email This Post |


    The saga of missing 7-year-old Kyron Horman got a little more bizarre today at a news conference held this morning by the boy’s family.

    The event at Brooks Hill Historic Church was arranged on Wednesday by Kyron’s father Kaine Horman, biological mother Desiree Young and her husband, Medford Police Detective Tony Young.

    Absent was Terri Moulton Horman, the stepmom investigators say was the last person known to have seen Kyron before his June 4 disappearance. Kaine Horman filed for divorce and a restraining order against her earlier this week. And she’s since hired star criminal defense attorney Stephen Houze.

    Today, Kaine Horman and the Youngs sat at the head of a table in a room filled with more than two dozen national and local reporters for print, TV and radio. As the meeting began at 10 a.m., Kaine Horman started out by explaining “the agenda.” This wasn’t going to be a typical press conference.

    Horman said the family’s goal was to make “the story” about Kyron. With news of the divorce and investigators homing in on the stepmom, media coverage (including in WW) has increasingly focused on Kyron’s troubled family.

    First came Horman’s “ground rules,” as he described them. No cameras. No recordings. Everything was off the record and couldn’t be reported, unless agreed otherwise. Horman made everyone in the room agree to these rules before proceeding. And so this roomful of reporters consented, in essence, not to be reporters.

    Horman then laid out how the meeting would go. They would take questions, make some phone calls (presumably to investigators, to find out what they could say in their answers), then return and make an on-the-record statement. But first, Horman wanted all the reporters he didn’t know to introduce themselves.

    KEX radio, KATU, The Portland Tribune and “Inside Edition” all got the nod from Horman. But then came Shane Kavanaugh and Bryan Denson of The Oregonian.

    Horman said the family didn’t like The Oregonian’s coverage and wanted them to leave. Horman said the daily had failed to be a “team player.”

    “This is a team, and if we’re not going to play as a team, there’s no point in being here,” Horman said. “This is about Kyron.”

    Denson objected, saying he’s new to the story and after 28 years in journalism he’s “a pretty good reporter.” But there was no arguing. The family wanted The O gone, and a woman who said she’s a manager at the church escorted them out. The biggest newspaper in the state had been eighty-sixed.

    I introduced myself and said I’m with Willamette Week. Horman said the family has the same problem with WW. I agreed to leave. And so the paper with the second-biggest circulation in Oregon was also kicked out.

    As far as I was concerned, after getting kicked out all deals were off. I wasn’t going to keep the meeting off the record.

    According to a reporter who stayed, the family went on to lay out more “ground rules” for the future. They said they’d hold these “news conferences” (if you can call them that) twice a week, on Mondays and Thursdays, as time allows. They would make prepared statements, answer some questions submitted in writing and may also do occasional interviews.

    “They want us to cover Kyron, and they’re not going to get neck-deep in gossip and rumors,” the reporter said.

    ABC News convinced the family to make an on-the-record statement in front of one camera, with the tape available as pool footage for other reporters. After more than an hour inside the church, the reporters were sent outside while the family stayed in to prepare a statement.

    The reporter at the scene said The Oregonian had somehow gotten back on the family’s good side and was among those waiting outside to hear the prepared statement.

    At shortly after 12:30, the family emerged from the church and Desiree Young gave a brief statement in which she implored Terri Moulton Horman to cooperate with investigators. She also said the family believes Kyron is still alive. Check out the video with KATU’s coverage here.


    -----
    Don't know what to think about this. The dad seems like a controlling guy. So he somehow ended up with custody of his first child, and now his second. First wife filed divorce when she was pregnant... This one he marries later is a loon. Brother is a sex offender. And he lays down rules and calls the 2 out of 3 local papers we have as not being 'team players'? The whole conference is off the record and they take time out of the conferences to call the police department to ask if they can answer the question? WTF!?!

    in my mind if you have nothing to hide, why worry about "rumors" and what people are saying online.

    after reading what you posted icequeen, i'm starting to wonder about the father as well.

    this family seem seems all too concerned about protecting their reputation and not about finding little kyron.

    Kyron's mother implores Terri Horman to 'cooperate'


    [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjW6sMOfOF0[/youtube]

    Summary

    "We implore Terri Horman to fully cooperate with investigators to bring Kyron home," Desiree Young said Thursday.


    Story Published: Jul 1, 2010 at 1:37 PM PDT
    Story Updated: Jul 1, 2010 at 6:40 PM PDT


    Kyron Horman's biological mother, Desiree Young, left this note on the "Wall of Hope" outside Skyline School Thursday.

    PORTLAND, Ore. - Desiree Young, the biological mother of Kyron Horman, missing since June 4, read a short statement Thursday asking the boy's stepmother, Terri Horman, to cooperate with the investigation.

    Terri Horman has become a focus in the search for Kyron, and on Wednesday, she retained the services of a prominent local defense attorney.
    "We implore Terri Horman to fully cooperate with investigators to bring Kyron home," Desiree Young said Thursday. Accompanying her were her ex-husband and Kryon's father, Kaine Horman, and her current husband and Kyron's stepfather, Tony Young.

    Terri Horman was not at the press conference, which lasted just about two minutes.

    Desiree Young, who spoke through tears and had to pause at some points, also said that "Kyron is still alive" and that they continue to work with investigators to find him. She read from a prepared statement.


    She asked the public to continue to be vigilant and to keep looking for the second-grader, who has been missing for nearly a month.Massive searches following his reported disappearance from his small rural school on the outskirts of Portland have turned up no clues as to his location, according to investigators.

    Terri Horman is the last person to see Kyron after she dropped him off at school on June 4. He was not discovered to be missing until nearly eight hours later when he failed to disembark a school bus as scheduled in the afternoon.

    Terri Horman took a photo of Kyron with his science project at the school's science fair, which took place before classes the morning he disappeared. Horman told police she saw him heading to class and then left the school. He was marked absent from the first class of the day.

    Certain news outlets, that the family said they believe has been fair in their reporting and kept the focus on finding Kyron, were invited to the church across from Kyron’s school for a meeting.

    At the meeting, Kyron’s father, mother and stepfather laid out some ground rules and allowed the media to submit questions.

    The family spent more than an hour going over those questions, making calls to see what they could and could not say.

    While the media wasn’t allowed to record their answers, the family shared what their days have been like and what they miss most about Kyron – things like his toothless smile, his belly laugh and just the sounds kids make being kids.
    They also mentioned Kyron’s love of sushi and Mac and Cheese. They said he’s allergic to bees and has a v-shaped birthmark on his forehead that might stand out if he’s upset.

    The media did ask questions about Terri but the family declined to answer them because of the ongoing investigation. The family did say they have been briefed on the criminal investigation and even after that are still optimistic Kyron will be found alive.

    Before going to the meeting with the media, Desiree stopped by what’s being called the “Wall of Hope”, a chain-link fence outside Skyline School lined with messages of hope for Kyron’s safe return.

    She left her own personal note for her son and read a few of the others people have left before heading to the church.

    Desiree Young lives in Medford and had visitation rights with Kyron.

    Text of Desiree Young's statement:

    "Kyron is still alive. We would like all of you, everyone, to continue to get his face out there, to continue looking for him in your day-to-day activities. We pray each day for Kyron. We are working with investigators daily to bring Kyron home. We are extremely confident in how the investigation is going to bring him home to us. We implore Terri Horman to fully cooperate with investigators to bring Kyron home."

    Every morning I try to put off clicking on this thread. It's so sad & infuriating at the same time. Hope they find him soon. I don't know how a family can keep it together in a situation like this.

    Who could possibly have him if he's still alive?

    This is so weird.

    WTF is with the family? Is Sarah Palin their advisor? And by the by what's with the newsoutlets letting this loopy family dictate what they can and can't report. I'm so very tired of pussy journalism.

    I feel so bad for this little boy having so many fucked up people around him. I do hope he's alive and will be found soon.

    When you think about how calculated it all sounds it makes you physically ill.

    I agree, if they think they can control the media coverage, good luck with that. When the father files for divorce, takes out a restraining order and takes ustody of their daughter...those are some pretty big red flags that something's off in this family.

    I understand they want the focus to remain on finding Kyron, but the family issues aren't something the media and public can--or should, ignore.

    Hate to bump this thread for absolutely no reason, since there is zero new on it....sorry. But I was watching something on a channel in the Maryland shore area yesterday and they were interviewing and ex FBI guy...someone who GAVE polygraphs for a living. He said that in his 24 yrs of giving polys, he had never ONCE NEVER---given one twice of the same person. So WHY would the StepMom be given a SECOND poly???? Because she failed the first and they want to make sure of the wording and blah blah blah for the second so there is no fucking DOUBT.

    Bitch is done. Even w/all her lawyering up. She's done.


    Edit: Thank you to the Mod that put his name in the thread title. Like many others, that means a lot. Not sure why, but it does. Thank you.

    ^I think the second poly is b/c they got more information/different angles and realized they hadn't asked the right questions last time, not to re-ask the same questions.

    New info released today:

    A landscaper who worked for Kyron Horman's family at their rural Northwest Portland home told authorities that the missing boy's stepmom offered to pay him to kill her husband.

    The landscaper told authorities that Terri Moulton Horman approached him with the murder-for-hire plot six to seven months before Kyron disappeared, The Oregonian has learned.

    She reportedly offered the landscaper, who advertises his expertise in lawn care, a large sum of money to carry out the scheme, sources say.

    Detectives with the Multnomah County Major Crimes Team shared the landscaper's account with Kyron's father, Kaine Horman, last weekend, prompting him to leave the house June 26 with the couple's 19-month-old daughter.

    Within two days, he obtained a family law attorney and filed divorce papers and a petition for a restraining order under the Family Abuse Prevention Act.

    Investigators also recorded a conversation June 26 among the cooperating landscaper, Terri Horman and an undercover law enforcement officer, but Horman shut down the conversation fairly quickly, sources said.

    Detectives later confronted Terri Horman directly with the murder-for-hire allegation, which she denied, sources say. She has not been charged with a crime, as a criminal investigation proceeds.

    Terri Horman retained prominent criminal defense lawyer Stephen Houze on Wednesday. Repeated attempts to reach Houze, who was on the East Coast, were unsuccessful. A woman who answered the door at Terri Horman's house Saturday referred questions to her attorney.

    Laura Rackner, Kaine Horman's attorney, declined to comment Saturday night other than to say: "I just want to do whatever is going to help law enforcement right now."

    After Kyron disappeared June 4, investigators with the county's Major Crimes Team tracked down the landscaper in the course of trying to interview everyone who had contact with the boy's family. They also found it odd that Terri Horman had hired a landscaper without her husband's knowledge.

    The landscaper, contacted by The Oregonian last week, confirmed that he was hired to do lawn work at the Horman home off Northwest Sheltered Nook Road. He said he's talked with detectives and could not comment further. His name is being withheld to protect his identity as a cooperating witness in an ongoing criminal investigation.

    Detectives last weekend also shared the information they developed about the alleged murder-for-hire scheme with Kyron's mother and stepdad, Desiree and Tony Young -- providing a clearer indication of why the two banded together with Kaine Horman and the three suddenly and publicly distanced themselves from Terri Horman.

    On Thursday, Desiree Young, with Kyron's dad and her husband standing behind her, made an emotional plea to Terri Horman before television cameras -- the family's first public statements directed at Kyron's stepmom since the boy disappeared a month ago.

    "We implore Terri Horman to fully cooperate with investigators to bring Kyron home," a shaken Young told the media.

    Investigators said Terri Horman was the last known person to see Kyron, when she told authorities she left him about 8:45 a.m. June 4 at Skyline School. She snapped a photo of the second-grader wearing a "CSI" T-shirt and beaming a smile beside his science fair exhibit earlier and posted it that day on her Facebook page. She and her husband waited for Kyron at the school bus stop not far from their home that afternoon, and when he didn't get off the bus, they went to the school. The school hadn't contacted the family when Kyron didn't return to his classroom after the science fair.

    A large-scale search ensued, with law enforcement and search-and-rescue agencies from across the state, California and Washington combing the expansive hills around Kyron's home and school for days.

    Though the sheriff's office has consistently declined to say whether Terri Horman is a suspect or even a person of interest in the case, investigators have intently focused on her the past several weeks.

    She was grilled for hours through two polygraph exams, friends and family said. Sources said there were indications of deception during her first polygraph and gaps in the timeline she gave investigators the day Kyron disappeared. Authorities released a flier and questionnaire June 18 featuring photos of Terri Horman and a white truck similar to the one she was driving when she took Kyron to school, asking whether anyone had seen either on June 4.

    Last weekend, at 5:17 p.m. June 26, Terri Horman placed a 9-1-1 call, classified as a "threats" call, to Multnomah County dispatchers, and a sheriff's deputy responded. By 11:39 p.m., when her husband and her 19-month-old daughter hadn't returned home, Terri Horman placed another 9-1-1 call, one classified by dispatchers as a "custody" matter. Kaine Horman wasn't at the home when either call was placed, sources said. The sheriff's office has declined to allow the release of the 9-1-1 tapes.

    Two nights later, about 6 p.m. Monday, Terri Horman was served the restraining order and divorce papers at her home. About 45 minutes earlier, she had denied to an Oregonian reporter who came to her door that her husband had moved out. She gave a thumbs up, saying, "Everything's good."

    A judge grants a restraining order if the petitioner can show that the petitioner or child is in "imminent danger of further abuse" by the respondent, and the respondent represents a "credible threat to the physical safety of petitioner or petitioner's child."

    Oregonian reporter Bryan Denson and news researcher Lynne Palombo contributed to this story.
