Buzz Dakota, an eccentric, 55-year-old, Caucasian male, is well-known to the YCSD but is not considered dangerous. He appeared at the Sheriff's office to volunteer information he claimed was vital to this case. The interview was conducted at the Yoknapatawpha County Sheriff's Department and was recorded with witness's knowledge and consent.

  • I remember good ole Buzz!! He's been around for awhile. He has an answer for everything. :-)

  • are you familure with The OleMiss

  • There might be something more to this interview than meets the eye. The note found with Kevin included 4:20, which I believe refers to marijuana. While Buzz's interpretation of events (aliens) is unlikely to say the least, I think it's quite possible that his observation of something out of the ordinary going on at the pot farm was accurate. He mentions "alien ships," an "engine noise," and seeing three ships that looked like stars beaming to their spaceship and two returning later. What could those be other than alien ships? Car lights, perhaps? In addition, maybe the radio transmissions are in fact radio transmissions between whoever's involved in doing stuff at the farm.

  • One other point regarding the transmissions: Tomas Robards indicated in his interview that all employees of the Physical Plant at the University (which includes the area where the Hidden Room was discovered) were issued walkie talkies to communicate with each other. Perhaps some employees of the Physical Plant at the University are involved in some way with the pot farm, and the transmissions were walkie messages between them that Buzz, in his infinite paranoia, was intercepting. In addition, I think it's almost certain that the Hidden Room was built (at whatever point it was built) by someone involved with or contracted by the University. I think we really need to see every blueprint we can get of this place. Maybe it was initially unhidden (a storage space or something) but the Physical Plant employees (who are good at building things, etc.) did their own secret construction job to hide it for some purpose related to the pot farm.

  • Did any one catch how he said he seen 3 aliens go up and only 2 came out AND then he says he saw in the news paper how the one tht didnt ever leave was dead?? Think about it aliens where probly rhonda and butch and kevin why didnt the cops look into this more???? I think buzz is the key here.....
