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.
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.
