Dede Spicher, a friend of missing child Kyron Horman's stepmother, Terri Horman, invoked her Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination 142 times during recent testimony in a civil lawsuit, according to court documents.
The judge called Horman a "suspect" in an opinion filed as part of a civil case against Kyron's step-mother. It is, however, separate from any criminal investigation. Police and prosecutors have still not named any formal suspects in the two-year-old case.
On Friday, the nine-month anniversary of the disappearance of Kyron Horman, those who want answers held a vigil close to his stepmother's home, hoping to put pressure on the woman to come forward with any information she might have.
