Peter Bunch, the lawyer for Terri Horman, says that shes wants the divorce and financial matters finalized, but she does not want the court to decide on child custody arrangements until after the investigation into the disappearance of Kyron Horman is over.
For those of you familiar with the case, it seems strange to wait because we have seen with other cases that the wait could be years, if ever. No one knows if or when Kyron Horman will be found. The investigation into his disappearance will not end until he is found. Although everyone in the world wants him to be found (except of course, Terri Horman), the sad truth of the matter is that he may never be found. His whereabouts may remain a mystery forever.
Therefore, the child custody arrangement that now stands, wherein, Kiara, Terri and Kaine Hormans daughter, lives with Kaine Horman and has no visitation with her mother, may stand in place until she is eighteen years old. At which time she may choose to see her mother on her own volition.
This does not make much sense to the rest of the country because we all know that convicted felons get to see their children and according to police, Terri Horman is not even a suspect and has not been charged with a crime. If Terri asked for visitation she would get something. At this point she may even get unsupervised visitation or joint custody if she asked for it. However, she is not asking for it.
The only reason that she would not ask for at least some parenting time with Kiara is because she does not want to answer any parenting questions, such as ones about Kyron and where he is currently located. This is just adding to the suspicion that she had something to do with his disappearance. Desiree Young, Kyron’s mother and Kaine Horman, Kyron’s father have already stated that they believe Terri is responsible for the disappearance of then 7 year old Kyron.
Kaine and Terri did not make eye contact during the proceeding, but Kaine is not about to allow Terri to be silent. He will definitely fight this motion to compel her to speak in court about any information that she knows about Kyron’s whereabouts. For now, the only thing good that has come of this is the fact that Kiara will be safe in the hands of her father.
Kyron disappeared during a school science fair on June 4, 2010. The last person to see him was Terri Horman his stepmother and his sister Kiara Horman, then 18 months old, too young to talk.
Kyron’s parents are trying to raise money to increase the reward for his return to $350,000, details can be found at the Kyron Horman Foundation.
