Ted -

This morning after I got back from Ledford's "camp site," I headed over to his address in New Sarpy to see if I couldn't get a word with his wife, Doreen. I didn't let her know I'd talked to him. You know the drill. I typed up our conversation below. I'll add my comments after.


PI Anderson: Hi. How you doing? Mrs. Ledford?

Doreen Ledford: Who are you?

PI Anderson: Are you Doreen Ledford?

Doreen Ledford: What if I am?

PI Anderson: Then I want to talk to you.

Doreen Ledford: Why?

PI Anderson: OK. I'm just gonna assume that you are Doreen Ledford. My name is David Anderson. I'm a private investigator from Oxford, Mississippi.

Doreen Ledford: A P. I.? Like Magnum?

PI Anderson: Uh, yeah. Just like Magnum.

Doreen Ledford: Well, what do you want with me?

PI Anderson: Actually, I wanted to talk about your husband, David.

Doreen Ledford: Well, he ain't here.

PI Anderson: Where is he?

Doreen Ledford: He said he was going fishing.

PI Anderson: When will he be back?

Doreen Ledford: He said he'd be back Sunday afternoon.

PI Anderson: Next Sunday?

Doreen Ledford: No, yesterday.

PI Anderson: So, he was supposed to be back two days ago, but he hasn't showed up yet?

Doreen Ledford: Yep.

PI Anderson: Does he do that a lot?
