Alibi canvass – Kenneth Lemmons
YCSD investigators canvassed Malco theater employees to try to confirm that Kenneth Lemmons was there on the night Veronica Smith died.
The interviews summarized are some of the most typical or relevant to the investigation and are representative of all interviews conducted.
Name: James Morgan
Address: 1505 Jefferson Avenue, Oxford, MS
Mr. Morgan has worked at the Malco theater for four yearscollecting tickets.
Morgan said he sees a lot of people come in, but he did remember seeing the man at the popcorn counter after being shown a photo. Morgan said the man was loud and was talking to everyone that would talk to him.
Morgan said that when Lemmons came to his line, Morgan only spoke briefly with him, just long enough to tell him the number of the theater where his movie was playing.
Morgan said he didn’t remember seeing Lemmons leave after the movie, but said he never noticed anyone when they left.
"Who cares who’s leaving? My job is to care who comes in, not who goes out."<p
