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.

One thing that CANNOT be said for sure here is that Linda Alden sees everything. There’s no conclusive evidence that nobody met Dr. Pace at her home immediately after the show. Alden states Kim arrived home at 9:35 and she saw nobody else there that night, yet only 5 minutes later, Falk was at Kim’s OPEN front door returning borrowed books. Clearly Linda stopped observing Kim’s residence upon her arrival home until she heard the motorcycle. So, from 9:40 until 11:00 pm, anybody could have been there with Kim. Falk speaks to Kim’s state of mind at 9:40, saying she seemed distracted/agitated. I’d bet that was due to weird behavior exhibited by her dog, possibly due to poisoning. Becky and Kim spoke between 7-8 that evening, presumably finalizing plans to meet at the gallery that night. It stands to reason that Becky knew Kim’s schedule for the evening. As they did not share transportation to and from the gallery, Becky was quite capable of driving to Kim’s house and poisoning the dog, possibly leaving the back door unlocked for later entry. It has been insinuated in multiple places that Becky and Paul were very close, possibly too close. Upon seeing Kim and Paul making up at the gallery, Becky may have snapped, causing her to decide her only chance with Paul was if she killed her sister. With Arthur asleep in front of the TV, and a closed office building on her other side, nobody was present that could see Kim’s back door. All I can see is Kim coming home, noticing the dog was acting weird, letting him outside at which point he vomited, panicking and running inside to get her cell phone from her briefcase, cutting through the kitchen to get back to the dog, where I’d guess Becky enters the picture, explaining why the cell phone was left in the kitchen without her using it. Upon examining the dog, and the vomit, I imagine it would be quite easy for Becky to get behind Kim and hit her. Since Arthur was asleep with his floodlights on, it would have given Becky carte blanche with his gardening implements, as well as opportunity to return the murder weapon. As there was only a slightly down angle to the blow that killed Kim, her attacker had to be somewhere near her 5’3”, which statistically is likely from a genetic standpoint. All that would remain is to throw the body down the stairs.

Then again, I just started using this site an hour ago, so I could have missed any number of things that make me wrong, lol.

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...

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.

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.

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?

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.

September 24th 2011Seen Kimberly arrive home at 9;35 Pm and seen Dr Pace drive Kimberly’s car into the driveway and enter the house though did not see him leave that evening. Mrs. Alden reported a loud motorcycle engine in the front of Kimberly Pace residents, at 11:00 Pm the 24th believed to be Kimberly’s Estranged Boy friend

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
