Detective Parker: Can you tell me where you were Saturday evening?

Chad Nixon: I was out with my girlfriend, Meg Lancaster.

Detective Parker: How long were you together?

Chad Nixon: You mean on Saturday?

Detective Parker: Yes.

Chad Nixon: A few hours, from about 6:00 p.m. to maybe 9:00 p.m. or so.

Detective Parker: Where were you two?

Chad Nixon: We went to get sushi at Two Sticks and then grabbed a couple drinks at City Grocery after that.

Detective Parker: Did Ms. Lancaster mention work during this time?

Chad Nixon: Uh, yeah. She mentioned some investigation going on at the agency. I guess someone was leaking information about clients, and Annette—that's one of Meg's colleagues—was going to find out who was doing it.

Detective Parker: Did Ms. Lancaster have any theories about the person who leaked the information?

Chad Nixon: Yeah, she said it was probably Sofia. She's another colleague.

Detective Parker: Did this seem to weigh heavily on Ms. Lancaster that night at dinner?

Chad Nixon: No, not really.

Detective Parker: Did Ms. Lancaster say what she was going to do after you parted company?

Chad Nixon: She said she had some work to do.

Detective Parker: Did she say where she was going to do the work?

Chad Nixon: No. I figured she was going to the office, but she could have brought her work home. I didn't ask.

Detective Parker: Did you drive her home?

Chad Nixon: No, we left in our own cars.

Detective Parker: Did you see which direction she went when she left? Did she drive toward her home or toward her office?

Chad Nixon: I don't know. We parked on different streets, so I didn't actually see her leave.

Detective Parker: Thank you.

Carlitha Pittman: I don't remember.

Detective Parker: Ms. Lancaster told us she spends time outdoors at night. Have you ever seen her doing that?

Carlitha Pittman: I don't know. I don't spend my time snooping on my neighbors.

Detective Parker: Do you know if Ms. Lancaster owns a nail gun?

Carlitha Pittman: Like I said, I don't know what my neighbors do or what they own.

Detective Parker: Where were you Saturday evening?

Thomas Phelps: I was out at a movie until about 10:00 p.m., and then I came home.

Detective Parker: Did you happen to see your neighbor Meg Lancaster when you got home?

Thomas Phelps: No, I didn't.

Detective Parker: Did you notice any lights on at her house or whether her car was there?

Thomas Phelps: Let me think … gosh, I don't really remember.

Detective Parker: Do you know if Ms. Lancaster spends time outdoors in the evening?

Thomas Phelps: Yeah, sometimes. I see her at all hours, to tell you the truth. She's always doing something: gardening or doing yoga or reading. She's an outdoorsy girl.

Detective Parker: But you don't recall her outdoors that night?

Thomas Phelps: I don't recall. She might have been, but I was only outside long enough to get from my car to my front door. I wasn't looking around much.

Detective Parker: Thank you.
