PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A key figure in the Kyron Horman investigation is the subject of a lengthy interview posted on a crime blog Wednesday.

DeDe Spicher, who was once pictured on a flier distributed by detectives in connection with the disappearance of Kyron, wants to clear her name, according to the report posted to BlinkOnCrime.com.

The blog claimed Spicher said she has been unofficially cleared and given immunity in Kyron's disappearance.

BlinkOnCrime's Christina Stoy said Spicher told her she has cooperated with the investigation since Kyron disappeared, and that she passed a polygraph test in connection with the case in July.

"In my conversations with her, I think she was put off by the fact that she had to clear anything. She was telling the truth, and she consistently told the same story," Stoy said. "At the end of the day, when she was, in her words, bullied into taking a polygraph, everything she has said from day one was true."

Kyron was 7 years old when he vanished from Skyline School on June 4, 2010. His disappearance prompted the largest search in state history, but he was never found.

No suspect has ever been named in the case, but the investigation centered on Kyron's stepmother, Terri Horman.

Spicher's name came up in the investigation because she was a friend of Terri Horman's and she was working near Skyline School on the day Kyron disappeared.

Ten weeks after Kyron's disappearance, detectives began distributing a flier that showed Spicher, Terri Horman and a white pickup truck. The flier asked people who live in the area if they saw either of the women on June 4, when Kyron was last seen at an early morning science fair at Skyline School.

Legal analyst Bruce McCain shared his take about the new developments.

"It's not at all uncommon or unthinkable that the district attorney would be making an immunity deal with somebody associated with Kyron Horman's disappearance," said legal analyst Bruce McCain about the blog.

McCain did, however, question why Spicher would share the revelations with a blog, when she refused to comment during previous depositions.

"If the goal was the get her story out, she could have picked frankly a better venue," McCain said.

The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office issued a "no comment" when FOX 12 inquired about the blog's report that Spicher had been "unofficially" cleared.

The district attorney's office also issued a "no comment."
