Billie Dunn released a statement after learning of her daughter's death.
In a statement posted on the Hope for Hailey Facebook Page on Friday, Billie thanked everyone who had a part in trying to find her daughter alive.
She says, "My hope has ended but now closure can begin for me, my beautiful son & husband, all our family & friends. My baby has been found. Now to get her home where she belongs & get her justice.
Billie goes on to say, "Today, I learned my daughter has been murdered. Robbed of her short, innocent life. I'm just so grief stricken but on the other hand, I can take some comfort knowing my baby is safe & happy."
In a past interview with NewsWest 9, Billie said she was suspicious that her ex-boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, was involved in Hailey's disappearance.
Adkins is the only person of interest in the case but no charges have ever been filed.
