Dorothy Rebine: I know her as well as anyone I guess. Maybe
Detective Ted Armstrong: She has had occasion to confide in
Dorothy Rebine:Yes, she has... but what has this to do with
Detective Ted Armstrong:We'll get to that. Did you speak to
Ms. Webster on
Dorothy Rebine:Yes I did.
Detective Ted Armstrong: At approximately what time?
Dorothy Rebine: It was about 11:30 p.m. I remember because I

she was working or not and if she'd be able to go.

Dorothy Rebine:Well, I didn't ask her about it right away
we sort of got
in a little tiff...
Detective Ted Armstrong: About...?
Dorothy Rebine: I could tell she was smoking... again. See,
she's quit many times... but this time I thought it was for good. I
had been about 6 months or something, very noteworthy time wise.
Detective Ted Armstrong: Didn't you say you were on the phone
with her? How
did you know
she was smoking?
Dorothy Rebine: I could hear her. Puffing and blowing. It's a
sound... Anyway, I chided her and she didn't care for that. She said
just stressed out and I should quit nagging her.
Detective Ted Armstrong: Did she say what she was
stressed out about?
Dorothy Rebine: She didn't have to; I knew. This break up with
was just hard
on her. She would get depressed sometimes. I knew she'd worked with him
night, so I figured she saw him flirting with some woman or he just
ignored her. Anyway, she was agitated enough to buy a pack of smokes
Detective Ted Armstrong:Did she mention how she was feeling,
Dorothy Rebine:She said she had a headache. I figured between
smokes and the
stress she probably had a whopper. In fact, she didn't sound so good. I
to let her go so she could rest, but she didn't want to.. .maybe she
lonely... so we talked for a while.
Detective Ted Armstrong:About?
Dorothy Rebine:Just stuff... clothes and new shoes and things
Detective Ted Armstrong:What about the movie?

it just never materialized. We agreed we would try to catch it another

time prior or
mention a woman named Natalie Posner to you?
Dorothy Rebine:I don't think so. Who is she?
Detective Ted Armstrong:Did Ms. Webster ever mention any other
have been seeing?
Dorothy Rebine: No, absolutely not. Mickie wore blinders when
came to Dev. She
didn't want to know and she didn't ask. She’d rather die first.
Detective Ted Armstrong:I'll bet she would. Ms. Rebine, what
vehicle do you
Dorothy Rebine:One of them new little ol' Bugs. You know, the
They are the
Detective Ted Armstrong: Yes ma'am. Is there anything else
that Ms. Webster
said to you
that night, January 2nd, that struck you in any way, odd, unusual,
Dorothy Rebine:Well, no sir, I don't suppose so. Mickie is a
so all of that would be normal for her, you understand? But no, nothing
think of... outside of her smoking. I really thought she had kicked
for good. Guess it's true what they say; it really is an addiction.
