What do 1987 patrons of The Juke Joint remember about Kevin?

Investigators tracked down as many of The Juke Joint patrons who had been interviewed in 1987 as could be located to talk to them about what they remember about Kevin Gilmore.

The interviews summarized are some of the most typical or relevant to the investigation and are representative of all interviews conducted.

 


Carole French

Age / Position: 71 / Patient
Address
: Yoknapatawpha Acres Nursing Home, Oxford MS

Mrs. French was interviewed at the nursing home. She said she remembered Kevin Gilmore and that there was no way she could forget him.

She said there was a lot of hullabaloo about his death and that when she went back to The Juke Joint the evening after the discovery of Kevin's body made the papers, the place was buzzing with the news.

When asked what the talk was about, French said that everyone was trying to guess who did it and what had happened out on Hathorn Road. She said some of the folks were sad, but there were a few wise guys who kept popping off about the pot farm being so close and they were saying that he probably died happy.

When asked what she and Kevin talked about when he sat with her, she said that she remembered that he spoke mostly about being on the Ole Miss basketball team and how much he loved it.

She said it had been so long ago that she couldn't remember what he looked like, and she hated that. Then French said she didn’t want to talk anymore because it was time for her nap.

Hold it, just noticed something, Kevin mentioned a 'RHonda' to his aunt, the initials almost perfectly match in a way. The last letter in the inital was not written clearly (or assumption again) because remember, Kevin was in the room in the dark...

Hold it, just noticed something, Kevin mentioned a 'RHonda' to his aunt, the initials almost perfectly match in a way. The last letter in the inital was not written clearly (or assumption again) because remember, Kevin was in the room in the dark with only a flashlight. and he had to use his nails. The last letter could be B,R or maybe P. Either way it's something to look into.

He mentioned a 'RHonda' and Bethany also mentioned a Rhonda here:

'Mrs. Parker was more than happy to speak about the old days, which she called "the good times days." She said it was rumored that Rhonda Pendergrass had bought The Juke Joint with drug money, and maybe Kevin Gilmore and other employees sold the drugs for her. '

What do you guys think? check Rhonda out?
