Mee-Yon Kim was Courtney Morris's best friend and one of the people who found her body. Detectives Murphy and Parker interviewed her at the Yoknapatawpha County Sheriff's Department. The interview was recorded with the witness's knowledge and consent.


  • Detective S. Murphy
  • Detective E. Parker
  • Mee-Yon Kim

Detective Parker: Please state your name and address for the record.

Mee-Yon Kim: My name is Mee-Yon Kim, and I live at 319 Williams Avenue here in Oxford. My permanent address is 2206 North 47th Street, in Kansas City, Kansas.

Detective Murphy: We can see that you're upset, Mee-Yon, and I know this is difficult, but we need to find out how this happened.

Mee-Yon Kim: I know you do and I want to help, but I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around this. I feel like I'm in a fog and this isn't real.

Detective Murphy: We will try to make this as quick as we can for you. Are you ready? Need another tissue?

Mee-Yon Kim: I'm ready. I just… yes, let's do this.

Detective Parker: Try to compose yourself. We really need your help to find out who killed your friend.

Mee-Yon Kim: OK, I'll try to stop this crying. I will.

Detective Parker: We understand. Let's start with something easy. Do you have a job?

Mee-Yon Kim: Yes, I help out at the Orion Fitness Health Club. I'm a trained kickboxer, and I love working with the younger kids.

Detective Parker: By trained, what do you mean?

Mee-Yon Kim: I compete in kickboxing matches. I have a room full of trophies. I'm one of the best kickboxers around. Can you please just tell me what you think happened to Courtney?

Detective Murphy: How long have you known Courtney?

Mee-Yon Kim: Since the fifth grade. We're next door neighbors back home.

Detective Parker: How did you both end up at the same college?

Mee-Yon Kim: That's been our plan since the eighth grade. We applied to all the same colleges and accepted the invites to the one we had in common. We had other offers, but we wanted to go together. Ole Miss wanted us both, so here we are… or were.

Detective Parker: When was the last time you saw her?
