On Sunday, November 5, 2017, Deputy P.J. Watson and Officer Maria Richards canvassed Kimberly Pace's neighborhood on Jackson Avenue. The neighbors were questioned about anything they might have seen during the likely time of Kimberly Pace's death — the night of November 4, 2017, or the early morning hours of November 5, 2017 — or any other time.

The interviews summarized are some of the most typical or relevant to the investigation and are representative of all interviews conducted.


Neighborhood around the crime scene

Alden

Name: Linda Alden
Address: 1591 Jackson Avenue

Mrs. Alden said she is a widow and lives alone. She is given to bouts of insomnia and is often awake during the early hours of the morning. She said she is also a participant in the Neighborhood Watch program set up in this area and so is accustomed to keeping an eye on things.

Mrs. Alden reported that she saw Kimberly Pace arrive home at approximately 9:35 p.m. on Saturday, November 4, 2017. She saw Dr. Pace pull her car into her driveway and go directly into her house. She reported that she did not see Dr. Pace exit her house again that evening.

Later that night, sometime around 11:00 p.m., Mrs. Alden reported that she heard a loud motorcycle engine. When she went to the window, she saw a young man she believed to be Dr. Pace's estranged boyfriend sitting in front the Pace residence and watching the house. After several minutes, the man sped away.

Mrs. Alden said she saw Kimberly Pace's sister and two friends arrive at approximately 11:00 a.m. on Sunday morning, November 5, 2017, and let themselves into the Pace residence. Within the next 20-25 minutes, Mrs. Alden said she saw two marked police cars, an Animal Control van, and other official-looking vehicles arrive at the Pace residence, and she knew something horrible had happened.

Mrs. Alden also noted that on several occasions prior to Dr. Pace's death, she had seen a young man whom she does not know by name, who seemed to be peering in windows at Dr. Pace's home. On one occasion, she called the police about the young man, but, by the time they arrived, he was gone.

When asked, Mrs. Alden said she did see a boy riding his bike the morning of Sunday, November 5, 2017. She identified the boy as Jacob Hunter, the son of attorney Patricia Hunter, who works at the law office next door to Mrs. Alden's home. She said the boy often accompanied his mother to work on weekends and rode his bike while he waited for her.

Why are two different witnesses using the name Walsh in their statements when referencing Dr. Pace & her residence (Serena Falk and Linda Alden) or am I missing something here? The information we've been given says Dr. Pace owned her home so why...

Why are two different witnesses using the name Walsh in their statements when referencing Dr. Pace & her residence (Serena Falk and Linda Alden) or am I missing something here? The information we've been given says Dr. Pace owned her home so why would Linda Alden say "...she saw the victim's sister and two friends arrive and let themselves into the Walsh residence." We don't have knowledge that Dr. Pace had been previously married to a Walsh, which would explain the name, and then divorced, where she would have changed her name back to Pace.

This is stating that there is no knowledge of eth estranged boyfriend on motorcycle entering the house appearing as though Dr Pace was the only other individula in teh house between 9:35 and 11:00 o’clock the following morning

unless the motorcycle rider had his bike stashed out front and was hiding in the basement though were is Dr Pace during these events

Is Dr Pace and Kimberly pace the same person

 

I believe so

 

I believe Jacob Hunter the biker needs to be asked about what he was doing near Dr. Pace's residence or may be what took his attention to stop by.

 

Jacob Hunter is the little boy on bicycle right
And who is the Biker estranged boyfriend correct

 

Ms. Alden states she so a young man peering into Dr. pace window, not a young boy????

 

Jacob is the kid who mother work at a Law Office next door to Ms. Alden. There was young man who was/seem peering into the window.... maybe a college student.

 

OH my gawd I feel like doin' some late night gardening

 

you didn't go in side mr burke,why garding mmh?

 

Dr. Pace was involved in a controversy on campus regarding accusations that students can buy grades

 

Was someone in Kimberly's house when she got home? Did she know them? Was she under duress and could not leave when her neighbor came by to return the books or did she not feel threatened by the person in her home? If there was someone in...

Was someone in Kimberly's house when she got home? Did she know them? Was she under duress and could not leave when her neighbor came by to return the books or did she not feel threatened by the person in her home? If there was someone in Kimberly's home, were they looking for or blackmailing her over information in her briefcase?

Ex boyfriend possibly at Kimberly's home approximately at the time of death? Why was he there? How long was he there?

Who has been looking in Kimberly's windows and why?

Lights on in Kimberly's house at 12:30 AM? Does the bartender have a personal relationship with Kimberly or wish he did? Does he have a reason to lie about the lights?

Maybe a student who was under the impression that Kimberly was selling grades (at this point we do not know one way or the other). But lets assume she is not and this student comes to her to try and buy a grade and when Pace says noway and is going to report the student for trying to buy a grade the student becomes enraged and throws her down the basement steps.

Just re-read Linda Alden's statement which was made on Sunday 25th - the day of the discovery of Kimberley's body. As neighbourhood watch she's probably fairly accurate in terms of times, and details.

Just re-read Linda Alden's statement which was made on Sunday 25th - the day of the discovery of Kimberley's body. As neighbourhood watch she's probably fairly accurate in terms of times, and details.

But this interview also illustrates that from a fairly early stage, she would have been aware of the death of Kimberley, but perhaps not whether it was a murder...ask the detective, I think?

I also noticed that on the illustration of the neighbourhood map, there is a square in the back yard of Arthur Beck's place. Probably just a garden shed... for storing tools.... like shovels, hoes, wheelbarrows, lost shoes???

Hopefully, the Detectives will get to explore when they visit his garden.
