Kenzie Walker is a lifelong resident of Yoknapatawpha County and has been a good friend of Melvin Roberts since they were children. Walker is married and has two adult children. He farms and also drives a truck for a freight company three days a week. Melvin Roberts named Kenzie Walker as one of the people he went hunting with in the early morning hours of November 25, 2012. Detectives Murphy and Parker interviewed Walker at the Yoknapatawpha County Sheriff's Department. The interview was recorded with the witness's knowledge and consent.

Participants:

  • Detective S. Murphy
  • Detective E. Parker
  • Kenzie Walker

Detective Parker: Thank you for coming in, Mr. Walker. Would you please state your name and address for the record?

Kenzie Walker: Kenzie Walker. I live at 614 Butler 

Detective Murphy: You've known Melvin Roberts for several years?

Kenzie Walker: Since we were about five or six, I'd guess. We grew up on the same road, County Road 109. I've known Mel a long time, yes.

Detective Murphy: Do you and Mr. Roberts ever hunt together?

Kenzie Walker: We go pretty regular every year. We go out to his old homeplace. It used to be his parents' house, but they're both gone now. He's got about fifty acres of woods. Hell, the house I grew up on sits on his land. We've been tramping through those woods for more than fifty years now.

Detective Parker: What did you think when Mr. Roberts was arrested for rape five years ago?

Kenzie Walker: I was pretty sure he didn't do it. That was when he was drinking so heavy and messing with pills, and when I first heard about it, I said 'Damn, the pills have gotten to him.'

Detective Parker: What kind of pills?

Kenzie Walker: Sedatives or Valran-case/houseg haveer: Sedatives or Vdid 'Damn, the pills hav E. Parker Parkereive Parker: What kind of pillshatcPath=57" >5f pills?
