The interviews summarized are some of the most typical or relevant to the investigation and are representative of all interviews conducted.
Name: Bill Barton
Address: 2015 Brandywine Drive, Oxford, MS
Mr. Barton and his daughter Mary Beth attended the same Girl Scout Dance as Mr. O’Connor and Haley Smith.
Barton said he and O’Connor had a conversation when they first arrived at the dance but sat at different tables during dinner.
Barton said the next time he spoke to O’Connor was around 8:00 p.m. in the men’s room, where O’Connor was wiping off his shirt. Barton said it looked like O’Connor had spilled punch on his shirt.
Barton said he didn’t have the opportunity to speak with O’Connor again the rest of the evening, but saw O’Connor and Haley walking toward their car around 9:30 or 9:45 p.m.
