Dan Abrams: Kyron Horman’s Family May Suspect Stepmother In Disappearance

The father of missing Oregon boy Kyron Horman, Kaine Horman, has filed for divorce from the boy’s stepmother, Terri, citing irreconcilable differences and filing for a restraining order. Mediaite founder and NBC Chief Legal Analyst Dan Abrams appeared on Today this morning and told Meredith Vieira that all signs point to the investigators telling the family something about Terri Horman that has them distancing themselves from her.

Besides Kaine Horman’s open attempts to distance himself from his wife, he issued a joint statement with his ex-wife and Kyron’s biological mother, Desiree Young and her husband, Tony, fully supporting the investigation. Abrams told Vieira that, to him, this means that either Kaine Horman discovered something on his own that is making him distance himself from his wife, or investigators “said something to him about this investigation which led him to say ‘I’ve got to get out of here,'” and the same is true of Kyron’s mother and her family.

That said, Abrams was hesitant to see signs of imminent arrest on the horizon, as all this says is that the family is suspicious, but the authorities have yet to make an indication that they are ready to come to the kind of conclusion that leads to arrests.
