Alibi check – Lizzie Miller #2
From 5:30–9:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 25th, Deputy Willits and Deputy Watson interviewed people at the Oxford Skate Park.
In an April 23rd interview with the Yoknapatawpha County Sheriff's Department, Elizabeth "Lizzie" Miller recanted her prior statement that she was at High Point Coffee on the evening her father was killed. Lizzie claimed that she was actually at the skate park with Marc Huddleston during this time.
Skate park patrons were interviewed to determine whether Lizzie was there between 5:30 and 9:00 p.m. on April 20th.
The interviews summarized are some of the most typical or relevant to the investigation and are representative of all interviews conducted.
Sarah Cohen said she was at the skate park on April 20th with her 12-year-old sister, Chelsea, who was skateboarding in the main bowl at the park in preparation for the upcoming contest.
When Chelsea finished practicing around 6:30 p.m., the sisters headed home for supper and walked past Lizzie and some other teens who were hanging out. Sarah said she knew Lizzie from when they were on the archery team together, but Sarah had quit archery to dedicate more time to piano playing. Sarah said she and Lizzie exchanged hellos, but that was the extent of their conversation.
