Name: Ione Margulis
Address: 214 Huntington Place, Oxford, MS 38655.
Mrs. Margulis, 45, is a secretary/receptionist at the local newspaper.
She and her family were returning from a gathering at her mother’s home around 8:00 p.m. on March 11, 2018. Margulis wondered why the lights were on in the center although there didn’t seem to be any activity inside.
She started to phone Mr. Garrett, whom she knew was the HOA president, to notify him that someone had left the lights on, but was distracted by one of her children and then forgot about it. She thought no more about it until she saw the sheriff’s department vehicles there later.
She was not aware of anyone entering or leaving the community center between 8:00 p.m. and arrival of the Sheriff’s Department.
