PORTLAND, Ore. - Court documents released Thursday indicate Kaine Horman thinks his wife, Terri Horman, is involved with his son's disappearance and a murder-for-hire plot.
Kyron Horman, 7, disappeared June 4 after he was dropped off at school by his stepmother Terri Horman. No trace of the boy has been found despite extensive searches and thousands of tips. Kyron was marked absent from the first class of the day despite attending a science fair before school began.
“I believe the respondent is involved in the disappearance of my son Kyron who has been missing since June 4th,” Kaine hand wrote in the restraining order.
The person referred to as the "respondent" is Terri Horman.
The previously sealed restraining order was released Thursday afternoon after prosecutor Norman Frink wrote Judge Keith Meisenheimer on Wednesday and told him that he no longer could stand by his opposition to keeping the order sealed.
"Given the media coverage over the past long weekend, the Multnomah County Major Crimes Team could no longer stand by its assertion in my affidavit of July 2 that unsealing the sealed matters before you would undermine our on-going criminal investigation," he wrote.
Additionally, Kaine Horman wrote, “I also recently learned that respondent attempted to hire someone to murder me. The police have provided me with probable cause to believe the above two statements to be true.”

Kaine Horman filed for divorce and the restraining order two days after Terri Horman called 9-1-1 from the family home on the outskirts of Portland. The content of those calls has not been released.
Sources confirmed to KATU News that a landscaper hired by Terri Horman was approached for involvement in a murder-for-hire plot many months before Kyron disappeared. The alleged plot to kill Kaine Horman was never carried out.
