On Saturday and Sunday afternoons, January 14 and 15, 2017, Deputy P.J. Watson and Officer Maria Richards canvassed Dale King's neighborhood on South Lamar Boulevard in Oxford.
The neighbors were questioned about whether they had seen Mr. King during the time of the murder - the night of January 1, 2017, or the early morning hours of January 2, 2017.
The interviews summarized are some of the most typical or relevant to the investigation and are representative of all interviews conducted.
With the exception of the following, all neighbors said they had retired before 11:00 p.m. or were out of town on the night in question.
2154 S. Lamar Blvd.
Ms. Nesbitt said she was preparing for bed when she heard Dale King's car enter his driveway at around 12:15 a.m. She recognized his car because it makes a distinctive noise that had become familiar to her.
At that time, she looked out her window long enough to see Mr. King exit his vehicle and enter the house. She did not hear him leave during the time she finished her preparation for retiring.
Ms. Nesbitt said she looked out the window again around 12:40 a.m. just before she set her alarm for the next morning and went to bed. She saw Dale King's car was parked in the same place and that he appeared to be moving around inside his house.
