Father of missing boy suspects stepmother


The father of Kyron Horman believes the child’s stepmother is involved in their son’s disappearance, according to court records released Thursday.

The revelation was made public after Kaine Horman’s restraining order against his wife, Terri Horman, was unsealed by the authorities in Portland, Oregon.

The order of protection bars Mrs. Horman from having any contact with Mr. Horman or the couple’s 19-month-old daughter.

In seeking the restraining order, Mr. Horman alleges his wife knows what happened to their 7-year-old son, who was last seen in school more than one month ago.

“I believe respondent is involved in the disappearance of my son Kyron who has been missing since June 4, 2010,” Mr. Horman writes. “I also recently learned that respondent attempted to hire someone to murder me. The police have provided me with probable cause to believe the above two statements to be true.”

A message left with Mrs. Horman’s attorney was not immediately returned.

The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office had no comment to the allegations made by Mr. Horman and have not named any suspect or person of interest in connection with Kyron’s disappearance.

“We are going with the premise that yes, Kyron is alive,” said Multnomah County Sheriff Spokesperson Lt. Mary Lindstrand, “and we are going to bring him home.”

    If she murdered him I hope she gets the death penalty, no excuses for such a horrible action.

    Bless this child's heart! If she did have anything to do with his disappearance and/or death, she should be hung up and hog tied...she is a useless person...
