The last light was extinguished at 2:30 a.m.

 

The subject came out of the house at 8:15 a.m., set up a camping chair next to the mailbox, and proceeded to pace the front yard until the mail truck arrived at 12:32 p.m. The subject grabbed the mail from the postal carrier and ran into the house. Photographs are presented in Attachment A.*

The subject left home in yellow Volkswagen Beetle at 1:05 p.m. and drove directly to the Oxford Health Club, arriving at 1:20 p.m. She stayed inside for 70 minutes. The subject drove directly home, arriving at 2:40 p.m.

The subject left home in yellow Volkswagen Beetle at 3:10 p.m. and drove directly to Sneed's ACE Hardware, 1400 University Avenue, arriving at 3:18 p.m. After she had been inside for 30 minutes, I entered the store and was unable to locate the subject.

After determining that subject's car was still parked in front, asked the clerk behind the counter if my sister had been in today, describing the subject. The clerk said she had and that she bought three cans of spray paint, one box of rubber gloves, and one tack hammer, paying in cash before leaving by the rear door. The clerk didn't remember the colors of paint purchased.

I checked the aisle and discovered fully stocked shelves with empty spaces in the rows containing the colors black, blue, and red, although I cannot positively confirm that the cans were stocked as indicated.

I asked the store clerk if the register captured the part number of items purchased, but he said he hadn't scanned the cans of spray paint since he knew the price. I left the store by the rear door and checked the area on foot, but was unable to locate the subject.

I returned to the store and again questioned the clerk. The clerk reported that the subject used the store phonebook to look up the number for Oxford City Cab, then remained at the counter and used her cell phone to have a cab pick her up at Abner's Restaurant, 430 S Lamar, and take her to Animal Clinic of Oxford, 2008 Harris Drive.

Drove various routes to Animal Clinic but did not sight subject. Visited Animal Clinic. The receptionist stated that she had not seen the subject. Returned to ACE Hardware to find subject's car gone.

I called the client for instructions and was told to establish surveillance at the subject's residence. The client said she would call me if the subject was sighted at the Yoknapatawpha County Conference Center.

Established surveillance on the subject's residence. The subject returned home at 1:52 a.m.

The last light was extinguished at 2:25 a.m.

 

The subject never left 103 Pinecrest Drive.

The client called at 9:10 a.m. to inform me of the previous night's vandalism.

The last light was extinguished at 11:35 p.m.

Surveillance completed.
