More than two years of searching and holding out hope ended Friday, and now family and friends want nothing more than justice for Hailey Dunn.
Scurry County officials confirmed that the remains found near Lake J.B. Thomas back in March were identified as missing Colorado City teenager Hailey Dunn.
Hailey's paternal grandmother, Connie Jones, was devastated by the news.
"What made somebody want to hurt her? What did she did she do that was so bad," Jones said. "I'm numb, I'm numb, I just don't want to live."
However, Jones believes she knows where the investigation should begin.
"I think Shaun Adkins had something to do with it. That's the first thing that came out of my mouth, I asked, where the Hell is Shaun?" Jones said.
Friday, officials wouldn't answer any questions about the investigation, but we do know Hailey's mother's ex-boyfriend, Shawn Adkins has been the only named person of interest over the past two years.
"I think Billie was afraid of Shawn, because Billie told me she was afraid of Shawn," Jones said.
This grandmother says she wants nothing more than a few moments with the man she believes took Hailey's life.
"I wouldn't say anything, just smile. He's kept us in Hell and now his Hell is just beginning," Jones said.
The search for Hailey is over, leaving this woman without her beloved granddaughter. She hopes others will realize this can happen to anyone.
"You think it's not going to touch me. It's not going to touch my town, but it touches you. In every way, it touches you," Jones said.
