Canvass – business school students
After talking to John Brewer and examining Kristi Waterson's office, the detectives spoke to students in the University of Mississippi School of Business who had taken one or more classes that Kristi Waterson taught.
The interviews summarized are some of the most typical or relevant to the investigation and are representative of all interviews conducted.
Ms. Boyd said this semester was the first time she had been in Waterson's class and she had planned on taking more classes from her in the future because Waterson was known as a lenient grader.
Boyd was quick to qualify that she was not a lazy student but emphasized that the value of an A on one's overall GPA could not be ignored especially when the A was easily earned, which freed up time that could be applied to other coursework.
