Tuesday, February 5, 2002 - 8:23 a.m.
The witness, identified as Andrea Stover's probation officer, was interviewed for the second time at the Yoknapatawpha County Sheriff's Department. The interview was conducted by Det. Sam Murphy and Det. Ted Armstrong, and was recorded on a portable tape recorder with the witness's knowledge and consent.
SM: Hi, Vincent. Thanks for talking to us again.
VF: I guess. I don't know why you guys need me again, but here I am.
SM: You know how it goes. We've just got some follow-up questions. Let's have your name and address again.
VF: Vincent Fisher. 407 Timber Lane.
SM: Last time we talked, we discussed your record and how there have been some complaints against you
VF: And I told you they were all damn lies!
SM: That might well be, but we still have to investigate them. How would you describe your relationship with Andrea Stover?
VF: I told you last time. We had a fine relationship. Nothing better, nothing worse. It was fine.
TA: Did you think she was fine, Vince?
VF: I'm a married man. I don't pay attention to things like that.
TA: Oh, so not only do you not grope your cases, but you don't even notice if they're attractive? You're blind to boot?
VF: Look here, Detective
SM: Vincent, we've been told by other witnesses that you are often late to your appointments and that in general, you just don't respect your cases.
VF: Why should I respect them? They're criminals.
SM: And also that you're particularly difficult on the women.
VF: That's not true.
SM: Have you ever touched one of your cases in an inappropriate way?
TA: Have you ever propositioned them for sex or other inappropriate contact?
VF: Screw you, Armstrong.
SM: Easy, Vincent.
VF: No, I'm not going to take it easy. I'm not going to sit here and be badgered by people who should be my colleagues. You two are taking the words of criminals and lowlifes over mine. You've been talking to a bunch of lying broads and believing what they say
SM: It's not just the women.
VF: Who else then? That scum Jim Taylor? You're going to believe a man who molested his own child? That's sick.
SM: We're not going to argue with you. Are you willing to answer our questions or not?
VF: Both of you can go to hell. I'm not sitting here and putting up with this crap.
TA: We'll go to your supervisor if we have to.
VF: Fine. You do that. But until then, leave me the hell alone.
End interview 8:45 a.m.
