Missing TN teen last seen with sex offender she met on Kik (Update: Both Found)

Hayleigh Wilson

Hayleigh Wilson

14-year-old Hayleigh Wilson of Surgoinsville, Tennessee, was last seen in a Marion, North Carolina, Wal-Mart this past Tuesday with a 41-year-old sex offender, Benjamin Shook of Georgia. The pair is said to have met on the instant messaging app Kik.

As I have posted in the past Kik is a well know too in the arsenal of pedophiles and sex offenders to meet victims. Also a smart phone does not necessarily need to even be active for Kik to be used as long as a wi-fi connection can be found.

Ben Shook

Ben Shook

Shook was released from prison in 2014 and was registered as a sex offender but never updated his information after that.

An Amber Alert has been issued

Shook was wearing a blue shirt with “Ford” written on it, dark shorts and a camouflage baseball hat. He has multiple tattoos.

Hayleigh was wearing a flowery shirt.

Hayleigh and Shook may be in a 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac, Maroon in color with Tennessee tag D6020D.

If you have any information on Hayleigh Wilson or Ben Shook, contact the Surgionsville Police Department at 423-272-7121 or TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND.

My prayers go out to her family for her safe return.

Taylor S. Clark

19-year-old Taylor S. Clark of Madison County, Illinois has been missing since yesterday around 10:30 am local time. He may have been going to meet someone about selling his 2007 Nissan 350ZX that he had advertised on craigslist.

Clark is described as a white male standing 5 feet 6 inches tall, weighing 190 pounds. He has light brown shorter hair and a full facial mustache and beard.

Anyone who believes they may have seen Clark or his vehicle, or may have information about his disappearance is asked to call the Madison County Sheriff’s Office at 618-692-4433, the investigation line at 618-692-0871, or the anonymous tip line at 618-296-3000.

Arrest made in disappearance of SC mom who went on Kik date

AshleyPegram

Police in South Carolina have arrested 30-year-old Edward Bonilla and charged him with obstruction of justice in the disappearance of Ashley Pegram.

Police say that Bonilla allegedly told them that he dropped Ashley off at a gas station but surveillance footage shows Ashley get out of a car at the gas station and get back in. Then Bonilla is said to have changed his story and claims that he dropped her off near a trailer park.

What really has me fearing for Ashley’s safety is that her family says that Bonilla posed on Kik as an 18-year-old and called himself “Emoney Bon”. This is an old trick used by a number of child predators in order to lure younger victims. While Ashley is 28 by all reports she looks much younger than her age.

I’m still hoping against hope and praying to God that she’ll be found alive.

Pegram is described as a white female, approximately 5’01” and 140 pounds. She has brown shoulder length hair, brown eyes, and wears black framed glasses. She was last seen wearing a black shirt, blue jeans, and black flip flops with sparkles.

If you have any information on Pegram’s whereabouts, call Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office at 843-832-0333, or Crime Stoppers at 843-554-1111.

Remains of Amy Ahonen found

Remains of Amy Ahonen, missing since 2011, located, family confirms:

Family: Remains of missing Denver woman, Amy Ahonen, found in 2 locations in metro Denver:

Amy Ahonen

Amy Ahonen

The family of Amy Ahonen has said that Amy’s remains have been found in two separate parts of the Denver area. She went missing back in 2011 under mysterious circumstances.

At the time of her disappearance Amy’s sister said that Amy placed an ad for a roommate on craigslist and that a guy who responded to the ad made her fear for her safety. Since that time I have not heard whether or not police have investigated that avenue. So far no arrests have been made in Amy’s disappearance.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Amy’s family and friends.

Is Justin Adams’ attorney trying to frame an innocent man?

Justin Adams

Justin Adams

Charges against Blanchard man accused in wife’s death to be amended:

Amended charges expected in death of Jaymie Adams:

I actually got wind of this story a few weeks ago. I basically thought nothing of it because I figured I’ll post about once the charges have been amended. Then a couple of weeks went by and the charges still hadn’t been amended so I decided to go back and take another look at it and I’m glad I did.

For those of you who don’t know Justin Adams has been charged with the brutal stabbing and blunt force trauma killing of his pregnant wife Jaymie. In my opinion police have the right man due to the alleged motives of a life insurance policy that was taken out on Jaymie and that Adams was allegedly having an affair as well. I won’t even get into the craziness that is Adams’ mother Tina Clarke.

There has been something that I have been leaving out of my posts on Jaymie Adams murder. There is another man who has been mentioned in this case but I’ve intentionally left his name out since he has not been charged with any crime. His name is Joseph Cyr and he may have been the last person that saw Jaymie Adams alive. Mr. Cyr has been very cooperative with police by all accounts. Thanks to Justin Adams attorney, Irven Box, neither I nor Mr. Cyr have that luxury.

You see it seems that not only the report of Adams charges being amended was leaked to the press but so was an accusation that Mr. Cyr’s DNA was found on Jaymie Adams. Specifically it’s being said that Mr. Cyr’s sperm was found on Jaymie Adams. More on that in a little bit. That’s important because Justin Adams claims that his wife was a prostitute on craigslist and has admitted that they both allegedly engaged in a swinger lifestyle.

While the charges are most likely going to be amended sometime soon the Oklahoma City police still contend that Adams is their only suspect…

“The investigation of the death of Jaymie Adams is continuing. At our request, the Oklahoma City Police Department has pursued additional evidence. We continue to allege that Justin Adams has culpability in the death of his wife. Charges will be amended to reflect the level of his suspected culpability,”

This statement was issued after the leak and while it didn’t come from Box directly he hasn’t been exactly shy on commenting about it once it was leaked to the press. Who does he think leaked it? Why Justin Adams’ big mouth mommy Tina Clarke of course…

Box said he gave a copy of the confidential report to his client, who in turn may have given it to his mother. The report later was leaked to the public.

“Evidently, he gave it to her,” Box said. “It couldn’t have come from anyone else.”

Even if Box didn’t specifically instruct his client to have this information leaked I’m sure he was well aware that it would be leaked by the woman who couldn’t keep her mouth shut if she was covered in bees.

Now as far as Joseph Cyr’s DNA being found on Jaymie I have to ask why was that not in the original autopsy report which can be found here. (PDF File) I encourage you to read the entire report but what sticks out is the last sentence on the report.

Acute inflammation and some red blood cells are noted in the vaginal swab. No definite sperm is seen in the oral, vaginal or rectal swabs.

So where was this new magic DNA collected from and why wasn’t it collected before. Is it a definite match or a possible match meaning it could match several hundred thousand or million other men? Not only that but what would Mr. Cyr’s motive be? For the sake of argument let’s say that Jaymie Adams was a prostitute and Mr. Cyr was a client of hers. What could possibly be his motive for stabbing her 21 times and bashing her head in? This sounds way to personal for Jaymie Adams’ murder to have been committed by anybody but Justin Adams. He had the most to gain from Jaymie’s death but Adams’ attorney is now allegedly using the court of the press to try to sway opinion away from his client. Common sense and logic dictates that Justin Adams is more than likely guilty. Hopefully the people of Oklahoma City have not fallen for Box’s legal sleights of hand.

Judge orders ankle monitor removed from Justin Adams

Justin Adams

Justin Adams

Oklahoma judge agrees to remove ankle monitor of man charged in pregnant wife’s death:

This comes straight from the ‘You’ve Got to Be Kidding Me’ department. It’s not bad enough that Justin Adams has been released on bail but this past week a judge in Oklahoma has ordered that his ankle monitor be removed.

If you’re wondering why I think that’s a big deal it’s because Adams is accused in the brutal stabbing and blunt force trauma murder of his wife, Jaymie Adams. There’s more to the story than just that though.

Justin Adams and his crazy mom, Tina Clarke, claim that Jaymie Adams worked on craigslist as a prostitute and was killed by a john in Oklahoma City. However a cubic ass-ton of strange behavior on Justin Adams’ part lead me to believe that he’s the killer. Like that he allegedly took out a life insurance policy on his wife shortly before her murder or that he supposedly started having an affair with another woman prior to his wife’s disappearance. And let’s not forget the accusations of possible witness tampering by Justin Adams’ mom. Not to mention that cell phone records possibly place Adams’ near the scene of the crime. That’s why it’s a big deal to me.

Adams’ attorney says it’s because the murder was committed by someone else. That would be awfully convenient for his client.
