Chase call records


Investigating Officer(s): Det. T. Armstrong, Det. S. Murphy
Incident No.: 002586-24E-2020
Case Description: Zoe Chase homicide investigation

Pursuant to an order from the court, the Yoknapatawpha County Sheriff's Department obtained the telephone records for Zoe Chase's cellular telephone number for May 23, 2020.

  • Because Zoe Chase's cell phone has voice mail, all incoming calls remaining on the line until the voice mail activated are recorded as completed calls.
  • The Account Names listed indicate only the billing name associated with the telephone number, not the identity of the person who placed or received the call.

YCSD investigators added transcripts of any voicemails corresponding to these calls to streamline the review of the compiled information.

Kathleen Silverman

Hi, Zoe. It's Kathy. Sorry I didn't have a chance to return your call from yesterday and I wasn't here to talk to you earlier today, but you know how crazy things can get in this business.

Don't worry so much about this contract thing. It's all going to work out fine. These negotiations always take time and I really believe we're on track to ink the deal next week. I don't foresee any problems that would be deal-breakers. Years from now, after you've published several best-sellers, you're going to look back on how stressed you were about this and laugh. I promise.

Now just relax, maybe spend a little time with that boy toy of yours this weekend, and don't give the contract another thought. This time next week, it'll be a done deal. I'll talk to you later. Bye.

Hey there, Zoe. Richard Bertuch here. I was just wondering what's happening with your column for the next issue since it hasn't come in yet. I tried to call Peggy to find out when we might get it, but I just got her voicemail and she hasn't called me back.

As you know, we're almost at deadline and I need to know what to do. Are you still going to submit a new column this week or should I rerun an old one? I'd really appreciate a call back as soon as you get a chance.

Call me on my cell since I'll be in and out. You've got the number. Thanks. Bye.

Howard Neidelmen

Hello, sweetheart. It's your mother. I'm sorry we missed your call earlier. We were out running a few errands.

We'll be home tonight if you want to call us back, or we can just talk to you later when you have time. Goodbye, honey. We love you.

Hey, Zoe. It's me, Jack. I'm at The Roadhouse with Hank and Russ. We were just having a few beers. Well, actually we've had more than a few. We've been drinking all around town tonight. I think they're gonna make us leave soon. They've already given last call.

I thought you might be nearby and maybe we could hook up tonight. But I guess you're not. I hope you're not out with some other guy, some dork from that writing group. You know how much I love you, don't you? I really love you, Zoe. I know we don't talk about how we feel very much, but I think we should because I really do love you and I want you to know that. That's why I'm telling you. Because I want you to know how much you mean to me.

If you get this message, call me back. I'm pretty buzzed so I might have to catch a few Zs in my car before I drive home. I'd really like to see you tonight, but I know what you said about coming over late at night without talking to you first. I promised you I wouldn't do that anymore, so I won't because I love you and I don't want to do anything to make you mad at me. But if you call me back, I could still come by tonight.

So call me back when you get this message. Okay? I love you, Zoe, more than anyone else. Please call me back, okay? Okay. Bye.
