Canvass – Littleton / Sanford neighbors

The investigators wanted to find out if any of the nearby residents could confirm Ms. Littleton's and Mr. Sanford's whereabouts on Easter Sunday or could provide any information about the family.
The interviews summarized are some of the most typical or relevant to the investigation and are representative of all interviews conducted.

Mr. Hoover said he used to be good friends with his next-door neighbor, Emmett Sanford, but hasn't seen Sanford very often since he moved out about a year ago. Hoover said Deirdre Littleton was never very friendly to him when she was married and that had not changed since the divorce.
Hoover said he does spend time with Liam Sanford occasionally, helping him with yard work in exchange for Liam helping him when he has problems with his computer. Hoover said Liam has become more withdrawn since the divorce, which Hoover attributes to Littleton overreacting and breaking up the family.
Hoover said he woke up around 9:00 a.m. Easter Sunday and saw Littleton pull into her driveway about half an hour later. Hoover said he did not see Liam in the car with her and did not remember seeing Liam at all that day.
