Kyron Horman Missing Case Latest News and Updates: Terri Horman Drama Continues.
The Kyron Horman case continues – and we want answers.
So does the rest of the country that has been taken aback by the adorable missing boy last seen wearing a CSI shirt at his science fair. The only person that the investigation seems to center on is that of Terri Moulton Horman, Kyron’s stepmother.
For some reason or another, the case was never handled like a typical missing persons case. In addition, it was recently announced that Terri contacted someone in an alleged attempt to murder her husband.
Kaine Horman, Kyron’s father, filed for divorce and an order of protection and is now living with the couple’s 18 month old daughter.
One interesting blog post points out that someone by the online handle RDSQRL reviewed a book called “Enter a Murderer” in the weeks prior to Kyron’s disappearance.
This is noted to be the letters featured on Terri’s Ford Mustang.
Someone on her Facebook page also calls her “Red Squirrel.” Like many Americans, she’s also a fan of True Crime and lists Dexter and CSI as her favorite shows – hardly anything that raises a “red” flag, but certainly something interesting given the twists and turns of the case.
But the question remains: why would Terri hurt Kyron?
Would it be to get back at Kaine?
Desiree Young, his biological mother?
Young and Horman were friends, and Horman moved in with Kaine to care for Kyron
after Desiree went to Canada for medical treatments.
Hopefully this isn’t a murder investigation.
Hopefully Kyron is stored away some place safe, and hopefully he will be reunited with his parents.
In the meantime, Kyron remains in the prayers of many.
Ever since KATU reported that Terri Moulton Horman, the stepmom of missing 7-year-old Kyron Horman, was commenting on the news station’s website, we’ve been curious about activity under the online handle “RDSQRL.”
The KATU story doesn’t state the handle the comments were made under, but the comments they cite in the story as being posted by Horman match word for word comments made on their site under the name RDSQRL.
RDSQRL is the vanity plate on the red 2007 Ford Mustang Horman drives, according to the Oregon DMV. At least one friend on Horman’s Facebook page (which is no longer open to the public) calls her “Red Squirrel.” A commenter called RDSQRL has also popped up on oregonlive.com.
A Google search for RDSQRL also turns up a page on the book-trading site bookcrossing.com. The page lists one book for RDSQRL — Enter a Murderer by crime writer Ngaio Marsh.
Note that RDSQRL listed the book on May 18 — less than three weeks before Kyron disappeared from Skyline School on June 4.
Curious about the entry and whether it was indeed Horman’s, we emailed her criminal-defense attorney, Stephen Houze, on Tuesday afternoon for comment. He has not yet responded.
We also contacted bookcrossing.com and asked them to tell us where RDSQRL’s IP address was located. Heather Mehra-Pedersen, co-founder of the website, declined.
“I have rounded up the IP, but we would need some kind of approach by law enforcement or some legitimate cause to release it as we are very strict about releasing info about our members,” Mehra-Pedersen wrote in an email.
Horman took her Facebook page out of public view shortly after Kyron’s disappearance. But before she did so, the page showed Horman had an interest in true-crime dramas. She listed her favorite TV shows as CSI and Dexter.
For our story in the print edition this week we interviewed criminal psychologists about Horman. We asked Washington, D.C.-based forensic psychologist Pat Brown about Horman’s interest in crime dramas.
“It’s concerning,” Brown said. “She could simply be a normal fan of these shows. On the other hand, if she’s psychopathic, what some psychopaths do is get great ideas from these shows.”
Enter a Murderer is a detective novel by Ngaio Marsh; it is the second novel to feature Roderick Alleyn, and was first published in 1935. The novel is the first of the theatrical novels for which Marsh was to become famous, taking its title from a line of stage direction in Macbeth, and the plot concerns a murder committed during the run of a play in London.
