SUV witness canvass

Following multiple reports of sightings of a dark-colored SUV at locations associated with Andrew Fine and at times during the period when Fine was last seen, Detectives Armstrong and Murphy assembled a photo lineup composed of photographs of six dark-colored SUVs of different makes and models.

The detectives then asked several witnesses who had seen the dark-colored SUV to examine the photo lineup and indicate whether the SUV they had seen was one of those pictured in the lineup or was similar to one pictured in the lineup.

The following interview descriptions, provided in summary and not verbatim, provide the results of those photo lineup viewings.


Wilkins

YCSD Officer Joe Wilkins

Reported seeing a dark-colored SUV in the parking lot of Papa John's Pizza at approximately 1:30 a.m. on July 4, 2014

Officer Wilkins said that he only briefly saw the vehicle in question in the early morning hours of July 4.

After viewing the photo lineup of possible vehicles, he said that, in his opinion, Vehicles 2 and 6 were larger than the vehicle he saw.

Although he only caught a glimpse of the rear of the vehicle as it was leaving the parking lot, his impression is that the vehicle he saw could very well be Vehicle 5.

Lopez

Jose Lopez
591 Hathorn Road

Said he observed from his apartment's window a dark blue or black SUV parked in the lot of Oxford Ridge apartments across the street from his residence at approximately 1:50 a.m. on July 4, 2014; added that he had also seen the same vehicle in the same location previous to that date

After viewing the photos of six vehicles, Lopez said he thought Vehicle 2 was the vehicle he saw several times in the parking lot.

He apologized that he was not familiar with makes or models of SUVs and that they all looked pretty much alike to him.

R Jimenez

Raoul Jimenez
310 Sisk Avenue

Said he observed a black SUV pull into the parking lot of Oxford Ridge apartments at approximately 1:40 a.m. on July 4, 2014

R. Jimenez said he cannot tell for sure which of the vehicles in the photo lineup is the vehicle he saw drop off a passenger in the parking lot across the street from his brother's apartment on the morning of July 4.

He said he got just a glimpse of the vehicle on that one occasion, and it was from a distance and quite dark.

From the pictures of the vehicles in the photo lineup, he thought Vehicle 2 was larger than the vehicle he saw, but maybe it could have been Vehicle 5 or 6.

T Jimenez

Tito Jimenez
585 Hathorn Road

Said he observed a black SUV pull into the parking lot of Oxford Ridge apartments at approximately 1:40 a.m. on July 4, 2014; added that he had also seen the same vehicle in the same location several times previous to that date

T. Jimenez identified Vehicle 3 as the one he saw many times in the parking lot of his apartment before the morning of July 4, on the morning of July 4 and at least twice since July 4.

He was positive of his identification, saying that since he works at Jo's Auto Clean Up Shop, he has washed and polished many Isuzu SUVs.

Ramirez

Jesus Ramirez
581 Hathorn Road

Said he had often seen a dark SUV in the parking lot of the Oxford Ridge apartments, parked in approximately the same location each time; added that, each time he saw it, the SUV in question was occupied by a person he could not identify

Although he had seen the vehicle in his apartments' parking lot many times before July 4 and once or twice since that date, Ramirez said he could not be absolutely sure from the photos which was the SUV he had seen.

He thought Vehicles 3, 4, 5, and 6 looked about the size of the vehicle, but other than that, he could not be more definite.
