- Deanne Kimbrough
Detective Murphy: For the record, could you please state your name and address?
Deanne Kimbrough: Mi nombre es Deanne Kimbrough y vivo al camino del condado
Detective Armstrong: Please Mrs. Kimbrough could you speak in English for this interview?
Deanne Kimbrough: Of course. My name is Deanne Kimbrough, and I live at 19 County Road 1090.
Detective Armstrong: We understand that you were cleaning at The Theatre when the body was found in the mannequin bin?
Deanne Kimbrough: Si.... yes sir I was.
Detective Murphy: Deanne, may I call you Deanne?
Deanne Kimbrough: Yes.
Detective Murphy: Deanne, did you see or hear anything that was unusual or out of place before the body was discovered?
Deanne Kimbrough: I did.
Detective Armstrong: Can you elaborate?
Deanne Kimbrough: About three weeks ago, some teens or young adults began sneaking into the backstage area. I always found little reminders that they had been there. They were always dressed in dark clothing, but their skin was a sickly white shade. One night, I sneaked up on them as they were sitting in a circle and speaking words I could not comprehend. They seemed totally unaware that I was there. I yelled for them to leave, and they scattered like rats.
Detective Armstrong: Excuse me. Why do you think what happened three weeks ago would have anything to do with the incident we are investigating?
Deanne Kimbrough: I just thought that maybe these kids were involved somehow.
Detective Murphy: Could you recognize any of them if you saw them again?
Deanne Kimbrough: No, that's one thing I realized right away. I saw these kids several times over the last few weeks, yet I could not for the life of me remember the faces of any of them.
Detective Armstrong: Did you see or notice anything else?
Deanne Kimbrough: I did see a young woman, maybe 25 or so, who was hanging out at the back door. I just assumed she was waiting on someone.
Detective Murphy: Is there anything else?
Deanne Kimbrough: Not that I can recall.
Detective Armstrong: Mrs. Kimbrough, did you kill the victim?
Deanne Kimbrough: What, me? Absolutely not. Am I a suspect?
Detective Murphy: We haven't ruled anyone out, Deanne.
Deanne Kimbrough: I didn't have anything to do with it, I swear!
Detective Armstrong: Calm down. We aren't accusing you. Until we solve this crime, we have to consider everyone.
Deanne Kimbrough: I understand. Are we about finished? I have houses to clean.
Detective Armstrong: Yes, we're finished. Let us know if you remember anything that might help us in our investigation.
Deanne Kimbrough: I will. Good day to you both.
