The interviews summarized are some of the most typical or relevant to the investigation and are representative of all interviews conducted.
E. Marion Street, Pontotoc, MS
Jones, 70, lives in the same apartment building as Fisher on 25 E. Marion Street.
Jones approached the detectives as they were canvassing the area and asked what they were doing. He said he often walks his dog around the block every evening.
He recalled seeing a nice-looking, gray-haired lady going to her car in front of the apartment building on July 9 around 7:45 p.m. He remembered he was late walking the dog that evening because his son had come to visit during the day.
Jones said he always looks twice at nice-looking ladies, especially those with gray hair. He said he smiled and nodded at her, but she ignored him for some reason.
