Below are excerpts.
On Kaine Horman reacts to hearing about the murder-for-hire plot that his wife Terri allegedly hatched to try to kill him before Kyron went missing:
KATE SNOW: You've been informed that she was trying to hire someone to murder you.
KAINE HORMAN: I didn't believe it at first. It was something that I couldn't even wrap my head around at the time--
SNOW: There'd been no indication in your marriage--
KAINE HORMAN: No.
SNOW: --that things were that bad or that she was upset with you.
KAINE HORMAN: No.
SNOW: Do you fear for your safety now, Kaine? For your daughter?
KAINE HORMAN: I fear for my daughter.
SNOW: Do you think she is capable of hurting a child?
KAINE HORMAN: If you asked me before this situation, my answer's no. Based on what I know now, I don't know.
KAINE HORMAN: I think anything is possible, based on the way things have gone over the past few weeks.
On Desiree's husband Tony says that as early as the first night of the investigation, the very day Kyron went missing, he explained to the family what to expect from detectives. Tony expresses surprise at Terri Horman's reaction:
TONY YOUNG: I explained to each person that now our lives are not private anymore, that the investigators are going to want to know very detailed information about our lives ...
TONY YOUNG: She instantly started to express some displeasure at that and not wanting -- feeling like she was persecuted. And I thought that was kind of an unusual reaction that early.
Tony reveals to "Dateline" that the police asked Terri Horman to submit to a polygraph more than once:
TONY YOUNG: I thought something must not be right. Something must not be allowing them to check her off the list.
KATE SNOW: Is it possible, though, that she was just nervous, that she didn't pass her lie detector test with flying colors because she was emotional or upset or--
TONY YOUNG: There's more to it than just that... The information that you're giving, does it does it hit your ear and sound right? Does it make sense?
KATE SNOW: She wasn't making sense?
TONY YOUNG: Not from the information I heard from her.
On Kyron's mother, Desiree Young, in Kyron's bedroom that she's left just as it was the last day Kyron was there:
DESIREE YOUNG: His bed I still can't bring myself to make it. It's the same as it was when he last slept in it. And I can't put away his laundry. His cars are still out -- he was playing with his little car wash last time he was here.
