The detectives spoke with Yvonne a few hours after she found Jared Plunk's bloody body

Saturday, January 12, 2019 - 8:15 a.m.

Yvonne Boyd is the Accommodation Manager at the Yoknapatawpha County Conference Center (YCCC) and discovered Jared Plunk's body.

Detectives Murphy and Parker interviewed her in a meeting room at the YCCC.

Participants:

  • Detective S. Murphy
  • Detective E. Parker
  • Yvonne Boyd

Detective Murphy: Good morning, Mrs. Boyd. Thank you for talking to us now. I know finding a body like that can be unnerving, to say the least.

Yvonne Boyd: You're welcome, Detective, and yes, it's terribly upsetting.

Detective Murphy: Would you state your name and address for the record, please?

Yvonne Boyd: Of course. My name is Yvonne Boyd, and I live at 1509 Smallwood Drive in Oxford.

Detective Murphy: And you're a YCCC employee?

Yvonne Boyd: Yes, I'm the Accommodation Manager.

Detective Murphy: What exactly is that?

Yvonne Boyd: I'm responsible for the efficient operation of the hotel and staff supervision.

Detective Murphy: How did you happen to be in the area where the body was found?

Yvonne Boyd: I was carrying out my usual routine of inspecting all areas of the conference center to ensure everything is clean and presentable and there are no problems. That's when I found Jared near the fitness room.

Detective Murphy: Do you always use the same route when you're inspecting?

Yvonne Boyd: Yes, because that way I won't miss any areas.

Detective Parker: All right, please go on.

Yvonne Boyd: Well, I had just turned down the hallway, and I saw someone lying on the floor. I hesitated. I didn't know if someone had become sick or had fallen and gotten hurt. When I got closer, I saw the blood on the carpet, and I could tell he was dead. I called 911 right away.

Detective Murphy: Did you see anyone else in the hallway?

Yvonne Boyd: No, but I did see one of the Elvis tribute artists standing just outside the door.

Detective Parker: Tribute artist?

Yvonne Boyd: They prefer not to be called impersonators.

Detective Parker: I see. Did you recognize the tribute artist?

Yvonne Boyd: No, they all look alike to me, but this one was acting strange.

Detective Parker: Strange? In what way?

Yvonne Boyd: You know how you act when your clothing doesn't feel comfortable? Like it doesn't fit just right? That's how this person was acting.

Detective Parker: Would you recognize this person if you saw him again?

Yvonne Boyd: I'm not sure, but I highly doubt it.

Detective Murphy: Were you acquainted with the victim, Jared Plunk?

Yvonne Boyd: Yes, I knew Jared.

Detective Parker: Do you need a glass of water, Mrs. Boyd? You seem nervous.

Yvonne Boyd: Yes, thank you.

Detective Murphy: How did you know Jared Plunk?

Yvonne Boyd: Mr. Plunk and my husband were business partners.

Detective Murphy: Were? So they aren't anymore?

Yvonne Boyd: No.

Detective Murphy: What happened?

Yvonne Boyd: Mr. Plunk was not an honest person. They had worked together to obtain the letters that Jared was going to talk about in his conference presentation, but he ended the partnership with Taylor because he wanted all the fame and money that would come with the publishing of those papers. He cheated my husband out of his share.

Detective Parker: Do you know who murdered Jared Plunk?

Yvonne Boyd: No. I'm just the Accommodation Manager.

Detective Parker: Did you have any relationship with Mr. Plunk other than being his former partner's wife?

Yvonne Boyd: We were friends at one time, but when Jared stole the Elvis papers from us, he not only broke off his friendship with Taylor but me, too. He was very cold and calculating.

Detective Parker: Do you think your husband could've been involved in Jared's death?

Yvonne Boyd: What? You're accusing my husband? He would never be involved in murder. Taylor and Jared parted company because Jared was a dishonest man. That's all.

Detective Murphy: Where was your husband when you were making your rounds?

Yvonne Boyd: Oh, he was still asleep.

Detective Murphy: Do you know of anyone who might want Jared Plunk dead?

Yvonne Boyd: No, I don't know anyone personally, but I'm sure there are many. He was a terrible man.

Detective Parker: Did you disturb the crime scene in any way? Did you touch the body or move it?

Yvonne Boyd: I could barely stand to look at him, let alone touch him. No, I didn't disturb anything.

Detective Parker: Did you notice a weapon of any kind in the area?

Yvonne Boyd: No, I didn't. Is that about all? Can I go now? I still have a lot of work to do.

Detective Murphy: I realize you've had a shock this morning, so we can stop for now, but we'll need to talk to you again later. Please let us know if you recall anything else, and we'll be in touch.

Yvonne Boyd: I will. Thank you.

Interview ended - 8:33 a.m.

There is still Jared's wife and Sonya Davis as potential suspects.

Very finnicky, which could be cause for suspicion or merely a reflection of her shock.
It would be kinda weird for her to be so frontal about her negative feelings towards the victim if she had been the one who killed him. This strengthens my suspicion that she didn't do it (plus the height difference), but I do think that she is holding information, specifically about her husband. I'd test her by throwing a fake information bomb and see her reaction to it.

She seemed to get very anxious when a weapon was brought up, maybe look into that some more.
Other than that, i agree the Boyds were most likely involved.
