Shaker Heights: A Clockwork Orange

"Lisa pruitt is dead. Someone stabbed her twenty one times in the early morning hours of September Fourteenth Nineteen Ninety. She was found behind the Mansion. Where her boyfriend? Dan dreifort lived with his parents. Dance friends pointed the finger at the weird kid in school Kevin Young. And although there was no evidence linking Kevin to the crime and even though he had an alibi he quickly became the prime suspect for the detectives of the Small Town Department. They were out of their league and they knew it so they enlisted a renowned psychologist from Syracuse University. To help them get a confession from Kevin Young. No matter what I understand that in indeed. That's a very powerful alibi that the father indicates the Dan was in fact in his room and that they both heard the screams together. Yes that's that's very powerful. There is some I must say that we we had some difficulty still however with Dan subsequent behavior he after they go out to the edge of the property and and I'll go back into the home apparently satisfied that the source of the scream has left the area or whatever and that they can't find anything unusual. Apparently Dan rea exits the house to find the bicycle and then in fact without telling his parents called nine one one on his own to report what he believes to be. Now suspicious circumstances but then when the parents here the PRUITT's outside on the long you know and they're distraught in here are all these police vehicles. The crime scene being established up. Dan goes to bed falls asleep while the parents are waiting for the plain clothes. Detective to come in and interview them I found that I found that unusual in somewhat disconcerted but what we decided here was that Dick decided that well. That's not that's academic right. Because it's not Dan that we're going to be interrogating. It's it's Kevin. And whether or not he's the guy or not. We want to give the full shot to use the best psychological coercion. We can't right if in fact so that we get an admission out of him if in fact he is the killer. What is is the form talking to Kevin? Now he's gone to well. What we're trying to do is get a grand. Jury assembled where all witnesses would be subpoenaed and questioned before a grand jury including Kevin Young. What kind of immunity is involved in that None that I know of council allowed no Council no counsel he may take the Fifth Amendment. Almost certainly council would advise him to do that given that he has no immunity even willing immunity in such an interrogation right. Kevin is on a legally qualifies for adult offenders. Status is that right. That's right. Let me try to discords for a minute or two about what I believe to be. The psychological dynamics behind Kevin's peculiarities. There's no question that on the face of it Kevin's evidences self loathing self-deprecation what is sometimes called poor self image. He is in fact. I some suspicion that his own hospitalization was for an abortive suicide attempt to be the case the most recent one yes not to mojos while he indicated to the interviewer that he had nothing left to live for. I have that person with me. The officer that did the interviewing surgeon gray is here with me in my office. An excellent job by the way sergeant it was it was obviously a very productive interview. Even though we didn't get an admission there are some very revealing points that you undoubtedly felt that he was just about to tumble to to Rollover Dick and I both commented that In reading your report that first of all frequently visiting the bathroom. How many times three times within some short span of time right right all the signs of stress that something is bothering him. Yeah I mean all the physical signs in terms of I contact motion sitting back and forth in your chair and all the classic kind of interview things that you'd like to see once in a while. Were all clearly there. I mean the stress was real high on his level. What do you make of him saying that he could tell you that he had done it? And then he'd go to the hospital for a couple years but he really couldn't live with themselves. He he didn't tell you the truth. I mean I mean it's almost like is there truth other than he did it that I mean one of the things. We had been warned about ahead of time was the possibility that he had already justified. Some sort of course of action in mind and if his justification at something to do with it no. I really didn't do it or someone else did it. I mean if maybe he had totally blocked it out. We really don't know I mean. We were already prepared for the possibility that he had justified. This somehow and that he wasn't going to feel Yes this is On Jim Rights advice right right. Yeah I I. I concur a denial defense mechanism. For Kevin is high in his hierarchies of his ego protection. He is he's a fantasize he's A. His behavior is compensatory character. Who let me talk about that a bit. I think when you find such virulent self-deprecation self loathing I think you need to reach for an account doesn't doesn't stand on its own merit and the account is that you look at this. The self-loathing as compensatory behavior as denial behavior that is to say denial of the intrinsic the underlying belief that you are in fact superior that you are ideal in every way that you are a nip The opposite of someone who is unworthy you're Cream Lee worthy but that those thoughts are anxiety producing the Greeks used to call that the sin of Shoebridge. The notion that you aspired to God hood that you that you are. God causes enormous anxiety and anxieties compensated for defended against by the posture of the self deprecating. Self loathing fence. So you're very happy to talk about your being suicidal you're being unworthy. Nobody will talk to you. You're not found desirable by either men or women or what. What have you because that's your pose? That's your deception. What you don't want to talk about is the fact that your God that you control everyone that you believe you control your life etc and all the people around you you live in deception oppose the opposite of it. It seems to me that of what a perhaps in the attack we originally took. You don't minimize you. You maximize what he did his responsibility. His significance is capacity that the crime is important not minimal. He doesn't need help. He needs a pause for what he was able to accomplish his significance his importance etc is guilt feeling his guilt and there's no doubt that he in fact feels guilty in this post offense behavior of of starting a new life and I found that very significant in the statement that his profile of the killer suggest that he would move on and start a new life and then when he referred to a circumstances at college he referred to that as a new life for him right. He's in fact. He's very comfortable and whatever guilt he may have had. I think he's been able to deal with. I think that it's transparent and obvious that the guild is not sufficient to compensate or overbalanced his fears of the punishment that will accrue to will follow upon confession of that guilt. He's already fantasized circumstances of his imprisonment. So what we need to do is is. We need to arouse him around the Gilt again and that that may be difficult because now he's had ample time to scar over to see. Nothing is going to happen. That he's been successful is God like powers him again. Faced him because he is invincible? But I think that's the tact. We need to take that. He should feel guilty. He doesn't need help. He needs punishment. Does he feel that guilt. Still know as I'm saying I think he's originally it's completely it was able to compensate adequately for this because God felt guilt indeed the opposite. He would've been conflicted between feeling the importance of having done something that ordinary mortals. Don't do you normally mortals. Don't kill he understands. I think this his problems with his impulse control. He's impulsive is a great deal of difficulty with impulse control. He has to guard against this incredible power. That is within him this this power anger violence in. He asked to protect themselves from that and part of that his pose self deprecation etc the self-loathing. We need to play to what he believes to be his strengths. An inch doing we will arouse in him. His anxieties the anxieties and feeling god-like and those anxieties will trigger his guilt feelings again. We need to do what you would do. More with a a serial killer. It seems to me has in favor of the notions of power in being able to kill to recreate that sense of power significance that life taking capacity the interview took the tact of minimizing. You need help. Well you know they don't really you know you. Full offenders can mitigate this to the judge because he felt remorse etcetera etcetera. I'm saying and we know that that didn't work right. I'm saying we maximize the crime instead. Maximize the power the significance. You go back through the crime with a kind of fallacious dwelling upon the details but particularly with respect to the power the sheer marvelous power of being able to take the likes. You follow me

"Kevin Pause as if in deep thought and I told them I remembered worried about the draft in high school and that they stop the draft. The year I graduated I then ask Kevin if he was worried about the draft and he said not really he did not really think they would have a draft. He then begin to talk about settling through economic means supreme markets and why we were in the middle. He went on to explain that he remembers having long arguments really discussions with students and teachers at Shaker. High School on topics like this when Kevin was done explaining his views on the issues. I asked him if he enjoyed thinking and talking about things. Theoretical kinds of terms. Kevin said yes he he remembers. Kevin said yes. He remembers doing that a lot in economics. And I said with Mr Fabrizio and he said Oh you know him. He's a different sort of guy but we used to have a lot of long talks about economics world politics at anything. Kevin added that his own views were kind of conservative and had allowed him to have some long discussion with with some kids at school. That had really strong views and then he enjoyed doing that kind of thinking and that kind of mental thought process. I then told him that was what I needed help with. I explained that it would be great. Help to me in figuring out what happened to Lisa Pruitt. I asked him to put himself in the place of the person who did this to Lisa. Pruitt tell me a little bit about what he thinks happened. Kevin looked at me with a kind of puzzled look and said just between us and I said Yeah just to kind of help me think. Through the thought process. I begin asking Kevin if he thought Lisa was riding her bike or walking. When this happened looking at me but without constant eye contact. He said that he thought she was riding her bike and that the person grabbed her bike and the bike then rolled into the bushes. I asked him to go on and Kevin Thought for a minute and then turned and looked up the sliding door window and began to explain that the person who did. This really didn't plan on it to happen. He didn't really think about it ahead of time that he was just walking around that night and kind of wandering and Salsa and when these two people got close something snapped something snapped in this. Anger came out that he could not control. He knocked lease offer by grafter and something happened and she was stabbed with a knife and she was stabbed and she died so fast that he got scared. He did not want that to happen and he started acting frantic and crazy and running around and doing real quick because he was scared Kevin Positon. I asked what happened next. And he looked at me and said that he ran from there. Kevin added that he was sure that he will never kill again and that he was sorry. That Lisa died. Kevin said that he probably has a new life away from their Kevin thought from moment then repeated that he got out of there. Kevin added that he was sure that this person will never kill again and that person was so scared. When Lisa died that he will never kill again. I told Kevin that I was afraid that something might snap again that this person might hurt someone. Kevin said he was sure. The person wouldn't because the person had gone on to another life and things were better and this could never happen again. I asked Kevin to describe what he thought happened to Lisa. He said she was stabbed. And then he added. He heard on the news that she had been stabbed. I asked him to explain in greater detail and he said that he thought she was stabbed from the front. Kevin said that he just walked up to her and stabbed her once twice. Maybe more because there was a lot of anger going on giving us to use the bathroom and in fact got stuck in their due to a sticky door. We joked about it. He decided that next time he wouldn't close the door completely. He also got another pop about this time after a couple of minutes stretch I ask Kevin how well he knew the area where this had happened. He told me that he often walks around at night when he can't sleep but that he usually doesn't go to Lee road. He added that most of the time he just walks near her house. He added that he added that most of the time he just walks near his house goes across the street and sits in the stadium at the high school. He explained that he often doesn't sleep well and that he uses the time to think things out for himself. I asked Kevin what kind of things he thinks about. And he said that over the years he has had a lot of problems with dealing with kids at Shaker and he often needed time to think things out. Kevin said that happened when he would say or do something to others. That bothered him. He mentioned dealing with girls specifically but added that things were better now that he had his new life at college. I then ask heaven to describe the area and he said there was a sidewalk and some trees but he didn't remember too much detail. I asked him to try to remember what he could about the area to think in terms of the person who did this and I think what he would do with a knife. Kevin said that he would get rid of it. Only idiot would keep the knife. I asked how he would get rid of it. Kevin real quickly replied. That would be easy. There will be a lot of sewers around if you throw it hard enough. No one will ever find it still thinking in terms of the person who did this. I asked Kevin where the scared person would go to wash. Blood off his hands or to change clothes. He looked right at me and said that the way Lisa was stabbed. This person didn't get any blood on him and didn't get any blood on their clothes and that he didn't know where they would go if they did. I asked him if he was familiar with the lakes and parks in the area and he again said that he did not know where this person would go to wash change. Then ask Kevin to tell me how this person felt and how Lisa felt before during and after Kevin Thought for a minute and said he didn't feel anything before because he was just walking around and didn't know it was going to happen. Kevin said he then felt scared angry because he couldn't stop what was happening to Lisa. I asked Kevin how this person felt. Afterwards he paused and said guilty he added. He thought the person felt a lot of guilt. He then looked right at me and quickly that he thought this person would feel guilty because he kevin always made himself feel guilty about things he couldn't control went on to explain that he felt a lot of guilt about Lisa's death and that he felt he should have been there to stop this person even though he knows logically that he shouldn't feel that way. I asked Kevin how he thought Lisa Feld he thought from in looked out the window and said Lisa knew him and that she felt surprised and that she looked real scared when she realized what was happening. I asked Kevin what this person might have said to Lisa and you said that he didn't think this person said anything to Lisa. We then talked about the possibility that the motive was robbery or rape. He paused lean back on the couch and said that he didn't think Lisa had anything to steal that he didn't think that this person wanted to rape her that it was anger or something snapping and that he didn't think the person was criminal. I ask Kevin if he thought this person heard Lisa screaming and he looked right at me and said of course he would. He added that he is so. Close that the screams would be like yelling in your ear right now. We talked a little bit about what happens to people under stress. I told him that there are policemen involved in shootings that don't remember hearing the shots. He simply said he didn't believe it. We then talked a little bit about how people believe different things. He mentioned long arguments with other students over beliefs and added that he sometimes expressed an extreme view to get people to argue. We talked a little about crimes and how different people have different views on. What should happen to people that commit crimes? I then ask Kevin what he thought should happen to the person who did this to Lisa. Kevin had been very relaxed. He sat right up. Looked me right in. The eyes spoke slowly and deliberately and said that the person that did this should be electrocuted. Should hang or should at least spent his life in prison. He paused then looking away to the center of the room adding that if he is under twenty one years old he should be treated like juvenile. Because we don't have any real rights up until you're twenty one years old anyways.

And Kevin's room ask for Kevin and was told he was not in this office than set up surveillance on Kevin's room about nine. Pm We decided to return to the police department. Upon our arrival detective younger explained that one of his undercover officers has just located Kevin Young. He explained that. This officer was dressed as a maintenance man. It was clean a trash room that gave him a direct view of Kevin. Young's dorm room. This officer had just reported that Kevin had left his room. Gone down the stairs and returned with pop. He added that Kevin was wearing a blue woodbury. Run T shirt. I followed detective younger to the dormitory. Rob Houses one of the dormitories. Moral Tower located on the campus at Ohio State University. Detective younger I entered the third or the main floor. This is the only entrance into staffed by students who provide security and limited access to the building. Detective younger identified himself as campus police and we went up the elevator to the fifth floor. There we met with the campus police officer who had seen Kevin Young. He told us that Kevin's roommate and a girl had just left but that Kevin was in the room the door to the quad dorm room number. Five fifty was open. As was the door to Kevin's room which was five fifty four. The open hallway door entered into a small living room. Type area to the rear of this area were four doors. Each leading to a dorm room shared by two students. Detective Young entered the quad dorm room through the open door and knocked on the door. Way To Kevin's room. I waited outside in the hall where I could both see and hear detective younger. Detective younger displayed. His badge identified himself as a campus police officer and told Kevin that someone was here to talk to him. Kevin said to ask him in and detective younger said it was private and suggested they step out in the hall and away from his roommates. It should be noted that we had selected the hallway because the room to the other quad. Dorm rooms were all closed. No one was in the hallway and Kevin's other roommates were in their rooms with their doors. Open Kevin said he needed to get off the phone. Kevin Young detective younger than walks into the hallway.

Brosius had told me that during his first interview he had offered to come whenever necessary to help us with the case. I told him that since I needed his help. I thought it made more sense for me to come to Columbus. Kevin invited us into his room. I told him that I thought it was private and best be done away from his roommates. I added that I had asked detective younger to get me into the building because that would attract far less attention than the Shaker Heights. Police I went on to tell Kevin the we could use a room at the campus police department and he appeared to get very nervous. I then told him I was staying at the Ramada in about five minutes from campus and that we could use my room Kevin agreed and said he just needed to get some shoes or call home. He dialed the phone. That put it down gotta shoes and asked if he could call later. I told him he could call home in every wanted detective younger. Kevin Young and I walked towards the elevator. Kevin said the stairs were faster so we walked down stairs. Detective younger got into his auto and went on to other duties. Kevin and I got into sixty seven. Eighty to an unmarked Shaker Heights police cruiser during the drive. Kevin and I did not talk about the case instead. We discussed college life dormitory life and classes. He mentioned that he was glad to be at school and that it was an opportunity to begin a new life. He explained that he had not decided on a major but was interested in business. He added that his real interest was in economics and we talked a little about economics. The Adam Smith Foundation. He started in high school and Mr for Resou- his high school economics teacher. We discussed the adjustment to college classes. Kevin said it was an easy transition because what he was doing. A college was a review of what he did in high school. He said he tested out of enough credits. That he will be soft more mid year he also talked about the honors program in Ohio. State that he is currently enrolled in Kevin. I arrived at the motel about nine forty five PM. We parked by number two and took the elevator to the fifth floor room. Five twenty was around the corner to the right as we exited the elevator as we entered the room. Kevin remarked that it was a nice room. He mentioned calling home and asked if he could wait until after we finished. I told him he could call what he wanted and offered to. Let the city of Shaker Heights. Pay For the call. I suggested a seat and make himself comfortable. He sat in the seat on the couch. Nears the window. As I sat on the other end of the couch there was a loud noise like a helicopter from outside Kevin that we could close the Windows. I got up closed both sliding doors and turn the air conditioner on low. I begin by explaining to Kevin that I spent the last two weeks talking to people then gathered as much information as possible in an attempt to figure out what happened to Lisa. I told Kevin I needed some insight from him in addition to just discussing his involvement. Kevin said he was eager to cooperate in any way that he could. I told Kevin that this trip to Columbus was important to me. I explained that we were under pressure from the media and there were some loosens questions I had about his involvement with the case. Kevin responded with a few comments about how bad the television stations are how bad he felt about what they did to Dan. He added that he would like to resolve this before the media gets a hold of the story given us how long we would be and I told him I wasn't sure I explained to cabinet. Since I came to him for help. He could decide when he was ready to stop talking and I would take back his dormitory. He mentioned that he had an eight o'clock class but added that he was a night person. We could take our time. We discussed class schedule and the classes he was taking. I offered Kevin pop and he chose a coke from the CAN I offered I offered Kevin pop and he chose a coke from the can the only way I drink it. I then reminded Kevin that I was a police officer that I was investigating a crime then reminded Kevin that I was a police officer and that I was investigating a crime in which he was still suspect. Kevin said that detective mullany had explained that to him. I told him that he had a right to remain silent in. Didn't have to talk to me. Kevin said he wanted to help. I told him that we could stop or take a break whenever he wanted. He said he knew that as I started to explain that he could talk to an attorney. Kevin interrupted me and said that he understood his rights. He explained that detective mullany had explained all his rights and that he signed a paper that he understood. I asked him to tell me what he thought about the incident. Kevin replied that as he told detectives mullany he was afraid that tax can workman had done it and what scared him even more was that. Tex might have done it for him. Kevin Kevin went on to explain that he didn't know how he could live with the guilt if Tex had done it for him I ask Kevin Y. Tex would do it for him and Kevin replied that he Kevin had been at Arabiya on Thursday. When Tex came in Kevin said he remembers that at the time he was sitting alone at a table and was real upset about a good friend of his that had been sent to the Middle East. Kevin said he remembers texts coming in sitting at a table with him and saying something about going over to Dan drivers and that Lisa was coming over. He remembers the Tech. Said something about hating to be around when Dannon lease are together. I then ask Kevin why he thought Texas would do this. Kevin replied that texts knew that he kevin had a crush on Lisa for a long time. Even though Kevin insisted the crush was over Kevin out of the text was also worried about having an alibi for Thursday night. Kevin explain it. He was feeling extreme guilt even thinking about the possibility that texts might have done this for him. I asked Kevin who was friends with that. Went to the Middle East and Kevin said it was Emmanuel Robinson. He then went on to explain that. Manny was not really a close friend just some when he went to high school with Kevin added that he really didn't even know if many was there but that he had heard that from other friends. I asked Kevin of menu into the service right after high school. He explained that many and he had just graduated together and that he didn't know manny very well. Kevin added that he only spoken to manny a couple of times throughout high school. Kevin just scared him that a kid his age was going to come back. Dead from the Middle East Kevin went on to talk about the draft and how because of his January birthday he would be one of the first kids drafted. He explained that there were going to start the draft next year by drafting nineteen year old kids. I ask given what he thought about the draft and he said he didn't really think they would do. It can then went on to add that he thought the draft was unfair since they spent all that money all those years on a volunteer army. Kevin added those volunteers and reserves knew the risks when signed up and that they should not need a draft.

"I had been working. I had driver's Ed in the morning on weekdays and I worked in the afternoon so there wasn't really a lot of time for me to see him in the beginning of summer and then I had called him to see if he wanted to go out to a movie with me or something and that's when I found out he was in the institution so then every chance I got. I talked to Debbie and his mom to see how he was doing things like that. What were you aware of the thing or Dan mention anything to you about the relationship between Mr and Mrs Dreifort and Dan? How did they get along? Well Dan and his father have always had this thing going. I mean it's a lot. It's a lot less worse now. I mean I haven't because I told you when the screen doors are open. You can hear everything you could hear. Dan's father screaming at him. For whatever reason. Just clean your room and shave. And why don't you help me with this and stuff like that? I always heard stories about what had happened when they were younger. Like what like what? Well they're kind of far fetched. I never knew whether to believe them. Or not But I had heard that his father had gone violent with Dan and Deborah and I think his mom I'm not sure and that's why Dan's started lifting weights in the sixth grade. He wanted to stand up to his father and I had heard at once and the sounds really far fetched but I remember it and I don't remember whether I heard it from wwl Dan but when Dan was little he had to use the bathroom and his father said No. Hold it as long as you could. And then he couldn't hold it any longer so he ended up winning his pants and his father got mad because he wet his pants and like pushed his head into the toilet or something. It sounded very far fetched. And I'd always known Mr Dreifort as long as I've known Dan and I've always known him to Yo but I had known him to use violence. Is there anything that you know or anything that you feel? That could perhaps help us in any way in this investigation you mean. Is there anything other that I could tell you some tip or something that you've heard or anything that might have thought about? Tell him to. Please were thought about calling us and letting us know something that you heard something that you feel that may be no one else has thought about like maybe a threat or maybe some reason that somebody would want to kill. Lisa Pruitt all I know is what I've heard some of the rumors about who has tax and stuff like that and I really don't believe that Dan or Stan or tax either or any of the three of them are actually capable of they. They wouldn't have done it because first of all they wouldn't have done it to Dan. Stannard tax wouldn't have done it to Dan. Texts wouldn't have done that too and they had no reason in the world to hurt Lisa anyways. They barely knew her. I really strongly don't believe that they did it. That's just all that I've really thought about to tell you just didn't do it. I don't know who did it. Who has stand? Who are you talking about? I heard that Stan was. Somebody stands just a friend of mine. No you know Stan. Yeah you know his last name. No it's funny. I've known him since the ninth grade. But I don't even know his last name but I can recognize him from a mile away. Can you describe him for me is back? Well everybody's big to me. But his big and he has long hair probably down to his well well. It's shorter than his shoulders now. He looks awkward he smokes. I'm trying to remember whether he had an earring or not. I don't think so. Well maybe he does. I don't know about that one. Don't know just just disregard that. Does he go to the high school well. He was kind of he did last year and then he ended up dropping out and then this year he was enrolled a gun and he was caught smoking on school grounds and he was suspended then. He was caught on school grounds when he was suspended. So now he's supposed to pay something or serve something in jail or I don't know I don't remember what the outcome is but he's supposed to go to school the night that you heard the screams. Well it was actually the morning of September Fourteenth Nineteen Ninety. Did you hear just before or just after that? Did you hear any other type of noise? That might have caught your attention. That's why I thought it was so freaky 'cause I heard the scream and just looked and I couldn't see anything else so I just said Oh it must have been somebody in their car or something you didn't hear any kind of maybe a car pulling away or screeching tires or not. Even the police. When they came in the middle of the night you went to bed about one. A M Just about exactly where the police were all around looking around. You didn't get up at all. I didn't hear it at all. I was so tired from staying up so late studying and the screams that you said you heard seem to be coming from behind your house. Yeah because my windows in my room are closed. And so was the I have two closets and the door to the hall to Windows and the door to the bathroom. The only one that open was the door to the bathroom so I figured it came from any other direction. It would have sounded more muffled. Did you know Lisa to keep any type of diarrhea or anything like that? I knew that she always shared her thoughts with her friends. I know that she had little poems and stuff that she liked that she would share. Not Worth sharing it with some of them worth sharing it with certain people though. Who else besides yourself would you consider to be her best friends? I don't think I'm her best friend. Just Jennifer was really close to her and Rachel Lowenthal was very close to her and Kim Cole grew close to her in the summer. Dan was really close to her. And Judy Miller was close to her. I guess I'm kind of on the outskirts of people that were close to her. Who would you say would be Dan's best friends? Dan's best friends. Well Lisa. He was very special to me. I don't know whether he would call me a best friend. We spent a lot of time together. Used to share a lot of hidden thoughts I don't know if he would actually call me one. I would like to think that I was one He I don't know who he would call his best friends now. All of the people that I just named were close to Dan. Also and other was one guy that he matt in the institution with him. But I don't know if he would call him his best friend. Do you know his name. Oh he was just talking I was just over at Dan's house yesterday and he was talking to him on the phone. Mike Pagel maybe that's the closest I can call him. I think that's it. Whose first name is Mike. Yeah I answered the phone said this is the dreifort residence in he said is Dan there. This is Mike so I'm really not sure on the last name. I know bill. Demarco spends a lot of time with them before they left. They used to call each other over the summer. Do you know a kid named David Branagan. He used to Babysit Fermi. He lives a couple houses down. He's really nice. Did you see him at all on Thursday? No I didn't know he was home. I just saw him last night at Arab I was with my parents and I said Oh wait a minute. That's David and I went over and I said Hi Bill. Last time I saw him was I think it was right when school was ending and He's on me in the hall caught me and took me to Arab Beka and we were talking and he told me about this girl he met and da Da da. Do you know what the girl's name was Megan? I think he's rooming with her now or he's going to be rooming with her soon. I don't think he's going back to school this year. But he's working down at the in the flats at the Arab who's working a Rabah. Yeah I forgot where he's working in the flats though he told me but I can't remember very thin else. You wish to add to your statement. That would help you really. I don't think so here..

"Next up in the hot seat is seventeen year. Old Rebecca Beca boat right from the subject of the conversation. Is Kevin Young so I know Dan driver because two summers ago I went to Germany with his sister. Debbie dreifort W I became close friends and through her. I met her brother and after that Dan dreifort night became pretty good friends Thursday September thirteenth nineteen ninety. Dan called me at about eight. Twenty P M. He had asked me if I wanted to come over later and told me a bunch of people were coming Over later and I said WHO and he said Chris Jones Lisa Pruitt and maybe Kevin Young and be Dan Messing her. I told him I didn't think I could get out. I was tired and I wanted to get to bed not was the end of our conversation. Friday September Fourteenth Nineteen Ninety during first period at the high school. Will Dr Rumba said that Lisa Pruitt had been involved in a homicide last night and since nobody really knew how it happened. The basic rumor was that she'd been hit on the head with a blunt objects and her body had been found on the sidewalk corner of South Woodland and leave later at around one thirty PM. I went up to our Beka at Shaker Square and and since I was waiting for Debbie dry for it to come in and since Kevin Young was the only one I knew up there I sat down and talked to him. Basically he said has David as bad as everybody else's else's and I said well it was pretty depressing. I said it doesn't seem like the type of things that would happen in Shaker and I was really worried for Dan dreifort since no doubt. He's probably a suspect. Somehow or other we got onto the topic of rape. I said well if she was raped. Isn't there a possibility that they will find some semen sample on her body and Kevin. I said I don't think she was raped. I said well just assuming from that. They will be able to prove who did it. And he said while tests like that or one hundred percent accurate so of Dan dreifort did it. Then chances are they probably know already but I really don't think she was raped then. I told him that I had heard she'd been pulled from her bike around the corner on South Woodland before Lee and that she'd been hit on the head with a blunt object. He said No. I think she was stabbed. I said well that's not what I heard. And he said I'm pretty sure she was stabbed. Then I said it would make sense that her bike would have been found in the area like before you reach lease since from what I heard. Her body had been found on the sidewalk on the corner of South Woodland and Lee. Kevin said he thought they founded around there in the field nearby around that area. I said not that it really matters since nobody really knows was except police. He said yes. You're probably right then. I went to get a pink lemonade and when I came back I said some extremely psychotic person had to have done this and and he said what makes you think that and I said well it's not the type of thing perfectly sane person does then. He's sort of like sat up and said really loudly in really quickly. While I would only kill in self-defence then he likes switch to the Persian Gulf issue. He said what does for Breezy. Oh think about what's going on and I said he thinks that they should reinstitute the draft and to add women to it which I think is pretty unfair. This was said pretty jokingly he said why and I said since women the obvious the superior sex. I don't think we should be forced to go off to war and be killed. He said but you think people who are my age and are about to be headed off to college should be forced to go thirty killed and I said well. That's what for Breezy. Oh thanks and Kevin sort of rolling his eyes and kept saying my God. I should storm his house and kill him. Then I said said somewhat jokingly as long as I'm not shipped off and he said Oh because you don't think women should be killed and I said exactly he said I don't know about that I can think of a few women and I would like to see dead. I said like who he said. The only thing I want to know is if the. US is in the Persian Gulf because of NATO pride or oil and he kept on babbling doubling about this. I got bored so I told him I had to go pick up my mother which I did when you talk to Kevin Young Arab on Friday afternoon to tell. Oh you how he learned of the death of Lisa Pruitt now. Did Kevin mentioned anything about being invited over to Dan dry goods house the night before you know. Did Kevin Young ever indicate directly to you any kind of romantic feelings towards Lisa Pruitt. Yeah but it was quite a while ago ago it was like in the context like Dan was a god because he could get any woman he wanted and I said why do you care. And he said because she has a great ass I said why why do you like her or something and he said I'm not gonNa tell you because you'll go. Tell Dan I said I don't care one way or another how people feel sexually towards Lisa and he said if you where a guy you would. Have you ever known Kevin Young or have you ever seen Kevin Young carrying any type of weapon now on Friday afternoon Arabica when you spoke to Kevin Young. Did he mention any conversation.

"DREIFORT and Lisa pruitt. This summer I got home from Germany on July Twenty Second Nineteen Ninety and at this particular time Daniel was at the UNITARIAN convention. He got home the following weekend and from that time on we spent a lot of our time together that is until he went to the hospital. I was within the night before he went to the hospital at twelve. AM At this time. Dan and I had planned for me to come back over at about one that night. We had no idea what was going to happen. The next day with Dan going to the hospital I came back at one. Am and I expect to see. Dan Sitting outside waiting for me when I came up though the lights inside. Dan's house were on which was surprise. I went to the back and saw Dan's father yelling at Dan because he would not go to sleep by. Guess fifteen minutes later is father finally stopped yelling Dan. Dan Came Mountain. Said everything was okay. We went downstairs to his howling commando room and we talked until around three. Am about a lot of things. Such as Lisa how much she loved after and how upset he was with his dad. Everything you would expect from two strange teenagers I went home around three And the following. Dan was put into the hospital. Dan and I corresponded through letters and phone calls the hospital. I got Dan's pay phone number from DEB DREIFORT. I called called it a lot but it wasn't until the following Monday that a kid answered for some reason thought it was Dan's father from this time onward without me saying it they thought I was his father whether I would call just about every day one time. Dan came home and I saw actually more than one time another time. I found out from Dan that he that'd be going to the severance bowling lanes. Leeson I went to see him in. We asked for the lane right next to because it was supposed to be our lucky lane. Uh here Lisa. Dan talked but we weren't supposed to know each other so I had a lot of correspondence with Dan for Lisa. I spent almost every day with her. We would talk a lot about Dan because we were mutual friends and she would come over or I would go over there almost every day. We sent him packages. She jumped in our pool with her clothes. Goes on and we basically had a great time. I think I've said just about everything about the summer and Dannon Lisa. Could you describe what you know about the late night meeting between Dan and Lisa and how you found out about the meeting. This was a normal thing for Dan. Lewis had been meet each other late at night. When I was over at Christie's apartment on September thirteenth I realized that Dan Lisa would probably be meeting each other the next day after the murder? I was talking to either Dan or Chris and they told me one of them. that. Dan had told Chris that he was welcome to come. Also if I remember correctly. Texts also told Lisa becoming over that night. Chris did did not go over that night. And that's as far as I believe I know about that. Chris also said that he was very sad that that he didn't go over that night because he hoped hope that he could have done something to the attacker. At least it would not have been murdered. Have you ever gone over to the driver's house late at night. And if so how did you you get into the house or Dan's attention to let him know you're there. Every time that I had gone over there Dan. I had planned on becoming the first time I'm coming over. There was this past summer. Nineteen Ninety damaged always be waiting on the porch. And when I came over we would either talk on the porch or go inside and talk usually in the commando room one other thing. Dan mentioned to me about this night was that he had not even remembered at the time that he was talking to his father. That Lisa was coming over. The only time we're Dan was not waited for me was the time that I talked about when it was Dan's last evening before he went to the hospital. I know Oh that in the past Dan and Kim rathbone and some of his friends had met neither Dan's backyard or Kim's backyard. But I don't know how they signalled each other. Are you aware of the incident where Kevin Young stormed out of a Rava. And if so could you describe what you know about the incident what you know about Kevin Young Cher at around ten thirty. PM On September Thirteenth Nineteen Ninety. Kevin Young stormed out of Arab. Beka it that's basically what I've heard. This is not unusual for Kevin Young. Who I consider? You're a bit crazy and I say this because in the past he has had a lot of problems with women and in relationships in fact I remember my nineteen ninety yearbook. Kevin said quote. I hope you have better luck with women than I do. Unquote Kevin it. I saw a few days after I'd gotten home from Germany in Arab Biegel. He said that if I saw Dan to tell him how he hated him and how he was mad at him he basically just told me how much of an idiot Dan was. I heard either from Kevin Young on our someone else that he had liked Lisa and that he hated both Dan and Lisa and then he had wished that he could kill both of them. Of course when you hear something like that happy in said usually do not take it seriously because most people have said something like that especially Kevin Young who has said that about many people it would not be out of place leased to be totally surprised if Kevin did kill someone. Did it make you an easy. When Kevin Young said he wanted to kill Dan and Lisa I can say that many things Kevin Kevin is said is made me feel uneasy but now that I think about it I remember this pretty vividly because he was talking about two of my best friends and when Dan came home from MM is unitarian convention? Why Kevin had said that right now? I don't remember what Dan's response was. Could you describe how Chris Young. Kenny Workman Workman Danny driver. Stan Kramer Kevin Young in yourself fit together as friends Chris. Dan and I are close friends. Stan is not got a close friend of Dan. He's more someone we'd see up at Arabic every once in a while Texas deb's boyfriend and because he was always at the dry for its residents. Dan Got to know him better and talk to them more. I had been out with DEB. Dan and tax bowling and a few other times but his friends techs wasn't someone Dan usually hung out with unless his sister was around. Kevin most of all was not hardly even a friend of Dan's or any of the rest of us. He was more of a person that we saw Arab who we didn't particularly like I had nothing against him. I just thought he was crazy. Dandruff for you. Over to his house. On the evening of Thursday September Thirteenth Nineteen Ninety. He did not invite me over on Thursday September Thirteenth Eighteenth Nineteen Ninety. I think he may have said I could come over for a few minutes before he had dinner. But I'm not sure about that. Have you ever heard or have you you ever attended a party yet. Did drivers where robitussin was consumed by everybody. They're actually yes. I did not have any robitussin but one night rebecca boat right and Andy Conrad. Dan's house. I call Dan up that night and he said I could stop by. He told me he had some Four announces I believe. And how BECCA and Andy had some Becca 's house when I got over there. BECCA and Andy Bowl said how. It wasn't really doing anything for them. Dan said it usually takes a half hour for you begin to trip. Dan Ran with them in the backyard and circles and try to try to get them to trip he. I went to a bench or something at the back of the yard and would talk with them and try to trip with them or something he tried to do with me. Even though I didn't have any robitussin listen I kept laughing and he said it obviously wasn't working if I was laughing. Their behavior seem normal. I guess eventually they did trip. But that was never able ital- they seem normal to me too damn dry forever tell you need strange effects. He got from consuming robitussin. Yes he told told me many times he wanted me to someday try it with him once but I told him I would never do it. He said that there are stages to the Robitussin. There was one main thing that he he said it did for you. It just made you feel like everything was out there. I'm not sure used to say one specific thing but for some reason I I can't remember. It was not a big change in what you could think he would say. It was the added. Things you saw. All I know is that he has had one bad trip. I don't know how many times he's done it but I know the first time he did it it was at the s U SSI convention he attended. Did tell me what you know about the relationship between Dan's Reifer and Kim rathbone well. They've always been friends and just friends in in fact sometimes. They didn't talk for a long time but they were still friends. I'd ask him how he wouldn't talk to her if she lived right behind him but he said he just didn't see her. She was a friend of both Dan and his family. I remember during the summer. Dan's parents and sister went to Toronto while Dan stayed with the friend named Jamie Greenfield and Kim got the mail for them. They've just been friends at times during Middle School. Seventh and eighth grade. Did they would meet late at night. Especially when Judy Miller was Kim's house and when Brian Keating was at Dan's house because at the time Dan was going out with Judy and Kim was going out with Brian. They have been good friends. That is Kim and Dan. How did you learn that Kim? Rathbone had heard screams on the night. That Lisa PRUITT was murdered. Well if I remember correctly Kim Cole was talking to Kim Rathbone when I got over to Catherine's House on the morning of the fourteenth of September when she got off the phone she told us how Kim Thuch could have done something because she thought she had heard screams that night. Kim Cole said that sounded. I'd like Kim. Rathbone felt that it was partly her fault. I also talked to Bryan Keating who is still can rathbone boyfriend and he told me how Kim rathbone had called him around seven. Am on the fourteenth and told him what happened to Lisa and called back right after they had hung up and said that she thought she had also heard screaming that night the thirteenth to recall. Who mentioned to you? That texts workman's footprints may have been found near the murder scene. They believe that was Dan. Dreifort to your knowledge. How did Dan Dr Father Phil About Dan's relationship with Lisa pruitt? As far as I. Yeah I know he had no problem with it. I don't think Dan's father ever met Lisa. I remember talking to Lisa about Dan's father and the way he treated. Dan and Lisa said that she had never met Dan's father when he's been like that and she might have said that she never met Dan's father at all but I do know they met when Lisa went out with Dan weekend when Dan was home from the hospital. How did you feel about Dan Dreifort? Dating Lisa Pruitt. I remember the day that I found out. I believe it was April Fourth Nineteen Ninety and that was the day after they decided to go together. Lisa came in German class and told told me in. That was so excited. I remember I was so happy because Dan and Lisa are two of my closest friends and I felt so highly of both of them they broke. Oh Cup right before I came home from Germany in fact I think it was the day I came home from Germany and I saw Lisa right when I got off the plane because Regina was is going to stay with them. I asked how Dan was and she said that they didn't WanNa talk about it right now for the next two or so weeks. I spend all my time with Dan and and Lisa separately. I kept telling them how I hope they got back together. Because the reason they broke up was a reason that didn't really matter. Dan was just confused and really just wanted a some time alone for a little while.

"Kenny was clicked in his freshman at the Shaker Heights. High school he failed last year. We were doing the same thing pretty much at the beginning of this year We were both caught smoking outside the school which she's in the rulebook illegal and we're both suspended for three days which my parents didn't know about. So hopefully they won't hear from this Kenny. After being suspended did he went into Richard Blah. One of the he's assistant principal and was talking to him and he asked if he would tell. Mr Law would tell Kenny's mom That he really does not want to be in school. 'cause Kenny's mom is one of those kinds of MOMS. I don't really want to listen to the sun. They just think it's coming out of their mouth because because they're sick of school. But after Richard Flaw Mr Law I mean talked to Kenny's mom. They've got the papers. Signed and Kenny dropped out of school after that a big change came in Kenny. Any A fulltime job. He started dressing. Nice he was like really getting his life back in order but he didn't know what he was going to do. We didn't know if he was going to become come at Druggie to just a regular bomb and the farthest away was actually get a fulltime job and actually looked good which he is now. That's pretty much. All the knowledge I know will his death. Could you describe what you know about Robitussin Cough Syrup in terms of how it fits in with your group of friends the only the people I know that have taken robitussin to get a high. Are Kenny Workman Danny dreifort. I think I'm almost positive. That Danny and Kenny were the two that found around that it did something to you. those are the only two people emberley positively sure about trying to the best of your knowledge. How many times have either either Danny or Kenny tried robitussin? Well me for one have known him to walk around when he has problems when he doesn't want to go home he just walks around a lot just to get that stuff off his chest he just. He doesn't want to really go home at his house. His mom is the carrying. Kind show. Ask What's wrong. He doesn't really want to tell anyone about it except someone from the group but if we're not there for him or if there's something else up or if we're having a phone conversation he just won't bring it up with us. I have known him to walk around a few times by himself. Have you ever had any knowledge of him sneaking out of his house without his parents knowing it. I know he is eighteen and if his his rules are the same as mine. He doesn't really have to well since he graduated. I don't think gas to worry about sneaking out. I don't think he has a curfew on the night of September thirteenth. Nineteen Ninety when you returned home from work from Arabica. Did you leave your house after you got home for any reason. No I did not. Were your parents awake. When you retired for the evening on September Thirteenth Nineteen Ninety? No they early went to bed at about eleven thirty PM and I was still Philip. Studying was anybody else in your household about the time. Now when you said you were studying and had a few beers to drink that night do you have an idea how how many beers you had roughly sixty eight do you or do any of your friends that we have mentioned so far or maybe some of them. We haven't regularly Wurley or not regularly carry any type of weapon from my knowledge techs out of butterfly which Debbie Dreifort took to college with her when she laughed about a week ago go. She took it to college because Tex really had no need for it. can met. Some Moto has a switchblade. Would any of this be used against you know one of friends. Oh No okay because I have one myself which I lost. It was a butterfly knife. I showed it to someone and like walked over to them around the car and I came back and forgot to retrieve it so I haven't seen it for roughly two to three weeks. Oh and that's pretty much it out of the group do you know. Oh who has your butterfly no idea. At all. From my knowledge it could be on someone's dresser to someone actually giving it back to me and putting it in my room without me knowing right put it. Do you have any direct knowledge or have you ever heard of Lisa Pruitt sneaking out of her house to go see Dan dry for anybody else. No I know of no past right. Don't even know why she did this. Evening Lisa's not the kind of girl that would sneak out. She has a foreign exchange student. Didn't at her house. That's the second reason. Why wouldn't think that she would sneak out unless it was very important to see Dan that evening so that I understand you correctly you didn't really know? Lisa disapprove. Well is that correct not as well as other people. You wouldn't have any idea who appro- it might confide in as far as a female friend not off the top of my head not never really close friends. Did you ever meet her parents. No I was planning on going over there this weekend but there are too many people were there and I didn't go over there. I'd rather it be fewer amount of people over there. Do you have any knowledge of the feelings or either Mr Dreifort Lyford or Miss Dreifort on how they feel about. Dan Gone out with Lisa That they had both approved of it. But I'm really wondering about Mr Dreifort. From my knowledge. He supposedly supposedly had a crush on Lisa. I don't along it's been but he's really supposedly liked her. I mean it's a rumor is not straight facts. I didn't hear it from from Dan or dance father but he has had a crush on her and she has been going over from what I know she has been going over to the driver. It's house to see if Dan's home yet here of any messages from Dan as where Dan was. He can't write out to people of the family from I mean if Brennan was in there and they cannot except for family members. Can you tell me who you heard this from about Mr Dreifort having a crush on Lisa. I'm not sure the Girls First Name mm-hmm but Halley Warren. Who just heard it from Abbey Wilson? She is a senior at the high school and she is in the yearbook. Halley McPherson Curson Abby Abby. Is this a rumor that you heard prior to Lisa's death or after her death after our own we heard it this afternoon on my way to the funeral from Halley and she did not want me to repeat it to anyone for reasons of she didn't want it to slip out which I have no idea why I because I know I'd heard on behalf of the other kids at Shaker we want. Whoever did this behind bars? Is there anything else you can think of that. You've I've heard thought saw or otherwise. In the last few days that might be a value or interest to us trying to figure out what happened to Lisa. pruitt thought could have happened in my mind. From hearing the knowledge of a possible linking Lisa dance. Father and Dan and Dan's father were supposedly out the evening. Lisa's incident happened. They were both in the same room and they both heard a scream. This is from what I know for a fact or at least from the papers. Dan's father other told Dan to go out and see what happened if he can see anything at all. Dan came back. Didn't hear anything and you pretty much know the whole. Oh thing after that. He went back after the police were called. They went out. They didn't see anything. Dan went back out for his bike. Looked around found. Lisa's bike came back out to the police. And that's when the body was found I don't know if dance father and him were still in the same room that Dan's father might have told Dan that look. You're going to be looked at as being a suspect in this because Lisa was heading over here. I'll say that you were mean you were in the same room talking or or whatever and that's when we heard it for when I can think I don't know if it could possibly happen but that might have never happened. Dan's father might have of her Dan talking on the phone to Lisa a matter outside before she actually got the house. That's really off the top. My head that possibly could have happened which the skid marks on the sidewalk could explain the corner ones is maybe his father maybe walking around the corner surprising her and asking to halt saying Oh hello and they walking towards the house us Mr Dry for possibly thinking about it or riding a bike still turning around again abruptly and having to slam on the brakes again to describe describe the other ones on the road a her there were two skidmarks one on south woodland a one on Lee. Is that true. Whatever over I I could picture Mr Dreifort doing something like that? I don't want to say it because I like Mrs Dreifort rumors from Debbie Dry for Danny driver. They consider their father is a Hitler which really having the full meaning of why they call them this or why the nicknamed came up but he was like strict. He was one of the stricter parents around the neighborhood with the kids. Were you aware or have. You heard how Lisa was supposed to meet Dan that evening or how she was supposed to let him know she was there. The only way I could figure is way we always do it is Wayne girlfriend. Sneak out or boyfriend sneak out. The parents are up in bed. The one is waiting by his window to in the family room they have TV room which looks out. There's a window along the side. There's a fence because you're aware of that from looking around. She could have easily Parker bike right there and knocked on the window. Do anything like that. I mean do those windows. I know that you can't really hear anything if the TV's playing because I've been there waiting for Dan this weekend when I was going over to visit him to see what he was doing. I couldn't hear the cars when the TV was playing. Uh if that can be of any help guys I just thought about that. uh-huh Shaker.

Everyone else everyone who knew that Lisa pruitt was going to be a Dan dreifort. The night she was murdered. Seem to have an alibi as loose as alibis could be so. who was lying? Dan driver tax or was it. Kevin Young like dance friends wanted. The police needs to believe just when it couldn't get any more complicated in walks eighteen year old Stanley. Kramer Breath Stan. Could you stay starting from Thursday September thirteenth nineteen ninety the approximate time. You went to work at A.. Rabah that evening and relate relate to me as best as you can recall the events of the evening which relate to you of who you may have seen who you may have talked due to an anything that you can remember about that evening. Okay scoops closes about ten and after we closed usually do the mopping at about ten fifteen gene pm. When I was mopping I noticed Kevin Young was sitting at a table right by scoops he was emotionally depressed? It looked like he was crying and seeing songs. Longs I know some of the songs he was singing. I've heard him when I was younger. I continued mopping for about five ten minutes and I saw Kenny Workman come. And it's it with Kevin so I wasn't as worried as I was when I saw Kevin from the first time about what was wrong. I pretty much finished up at about about. I'd say about ten thirty PM. And that's when I clocked out and I decided to join Kevin and Kenny at the table. The conversation up was Kevin and was upset because a friend of his. I don't remember the name at all was in Iraq. I don't know if he was living or dead but Kevin was like hallucinating. Wanting him to walk walk through the Arab cadore so Kevin could give them a hug. Say Hello have you been and so forth I called my dad at about roughly ten. PM I went to get a pack of cigarettes. I at about ten thirty five PM and when I got back I sat down and smoked one cigarette. Which takes me roughly five minutes? I got up and called my dad. Roughly ten forty pm to come and give me a ride home. I went back to the table and the same conversation was up at the table. I was when I left. I have no awareness of what they were talking about at all. My Dad got to the back of Arab at about ten forty five pm which is when I say goodbye by two Kevin and Kenny. Yeah Kevin Kenny I went outside to get into the car. My Dad asked me to go in and get them. A coke came back back in Kevin. Kenny were walking out the front door to go home. Which from my knowledge is where they were going Kenny was writing Dandruff dreifort spike which he had returned that evening and when me and my father pulled out of the driveway I tried to get him the coke. I saw Kevin Young walking up a street. I think it was drexel more alone and it looked like he was headed home. What did you do after that? I had a lot of studying to do that evening and I went home. I watch. It's a little bit of the news just to get caught up on current events like I usually do. I went upstairs to do my homework. It was rough day and I had a little bit of homework to do so. I did have a little bit drink a few beers after I finish my homework I pretty much crashed. I went to sleep got ready for school the next day when you are at Aramco with texts workman and Kevin when young on Thursday night. Did you hear any conversation about a possible party at Deandra. Vard's that night now. I did not. Were you aware from the conversation between texts and Kevin Young. The Dan driver was back in town. we all knew from that day. Kenny was in school that day. I'm almost positive he was. That was the day that Kenny did. Drop out by do know for a fact that we all knew that Dan was back in town. When did you first learn that Dan Dreifort was back in town? It was roughly in between the hour of twelve twelve noon and one PM Thursday noon. Go ahead and explain the same thing you said before. Okay I was I don't have a sixth seventh eighth period so Alexi ratchets in a friend of mine that graduated in eighty nine was up at the school. Ease usually up there just driving around around. I asked him if he would drive me up to the gas station to pick up a pack of smokes. He did so and when I came back usually park right outside the science wing of the school I looked out the window and I saw what I thought was Danny Dreifort which I didn't know at first and I called his name and it was Danny and he walked over to the car and we. We just reunited started to talk and I saw them throughout the rest the afternoon until about four PM. Which I had to go home to go to work? WHO's a friend of yours? And what was his name. Alexi Racha Sin Lexi. Alexey that night data. When you left with your dad you state us? All Kevin Young walking up drugs more toward Shaker Heights. Is that correct yes. Did you see texts workman leave. I did not see him leave. Steve I knew where his bike was parked. It was parked right outside the window of where we were sitting and the bike was gone so I figured they must have left anytime. We're you aware that Kevin having an texts workman had left. Arabica walked over to a place called the shack. I have no aware of it. Do you know where the shack is. Doc where's that it's the rapid transits restaurant right on Shaker Boulevard in Shaker Square. What hours did you work at a Rabah On Thursday night from my knowledge it was five. PM To close which is at ten pm which I stated earlier. How will you know Kevin Young? You'd I know him pretty well. He used to play Little League baseball with him when we were both younger and we had missed each other for a while. After the team ended that summer he went back to school and I went back to school. I was still in the middle school at the time I got up to Think the eighth grade I when I I started going up to the high school Dec- other friends of mine. I met back up with Kevin and we started talking and just getting caught back up so I've known them roughly Lee well since about the eighth grade which is since I'm a senior would be nineteen ninety five thousand nine hundred five. That's what I figure describe for Kevin Young as you know him. What would you know about him? He had a normal teenage life. Did what most teenagers do drink. Go Go to parties on the weekend from what I remember. He did quite well in school. He wasn't one of the types of slack off that much with the school work because he was really concerned with his life when he got out out of school he just graduated the year. Nineteen ninety from the Shaker Heights high school. And he's a part of my group at Shaker Square Arabiya lately What I've been hearing what being Kevin been doing which was maybe about once or twice is drinking which seems like Kevin is having somewhat of an alcoholic problem problem which somewhat scares me? Kevin because I know Kevin quite well and he was really interested in baseball and he started smoking and drinking which surprised me that Kevin would do something like like that that heavily. Could you describe for me what you know in regards to any relationship between Kevin Young Lisa. pruitt okay I have known. I'm known that for the last two years Kevin has had a crush. I don't know if you want to say crush on Lisa He really was not to distract you. Go ahead and describe the relationship between Kevin Lisa Last two years Kevin has been in marching band with Lisa and they were pretty close since marching band is pretty much a big family To my knowledge Kevin has had a crush on Lisa. The last two years and his knowledge came about Dan. Dry for going out with Liza He was very angry distracted about Dan going out Lisa not him. Did he tell you that or is that just from behavior that you observe I. I have heard that from Danny dry for Kenny Workman and once from Kevin Young could you identify the members and kids. You're referring to when you say your group Yes In the group are Kenny Workman. Kevin Young Ken mets Emoto Jerry. Izenberg Judd Osgood Sheena Messina. Ah That's her last name Another one I'm just thinking of now. Is John Hannan and Alexi righteous in at least until he started working at Arabiya and there are a few more are that just. Don't go to Shaker Heights high school so they're usually not there all the time. How will you know Kenny Workman since Kenny's come to Shaker Heights? High School will as a freshman which was last year. I've known him quite well for both pretty much the same or crazy or both crazy well in the means of doing the usual things that we he would do in the Arabic group which is drink every once in a while just party go down to Coventry look for fights We were crazy when evening and we became blood brothers so I pretty much say that me and Kenny Workman or to me tax. Our Darn close described tax. What what kind of person? He is Who Tax? When he came up to the high school he looked like he wasn't as enthusiastic as a normal Tina's for high school? He was like different. He really did not want to be there. It's like high school wasn't for him. I mean that I'm used to it with our group but people normally don't like high school that had to be there was the literal dislike. He stayed in school. He didn't go most of the time. We did a lot of cutting at the end of second semester. Last year I dropped out of school which I really stopped. Stop going to the high school it was maybe about. I dropped out of the Shaker Heights. High School High School was then for me. I was a junior at the time. I don't know I just didn't like school. I came back up every once in a while until I got a job at Universal Printing which my dad owns I was coming up to the school and when tax or any of the group was cutting. I'd be joining them. which most of the time I did see Kenny Workman after the last year? Here this summer I was on vacation most of the summer so I didn't really see in that much. Emma Debbie Dry for had been together which has been a weird relationship broken up. I think about three times and other engaged to get married which really confuses me I mean. I'm glad that they are but I don't see how both parties are really wanting to do that. But this year I went back to school I enrolled again for some reason. They put me up as a senior..

I went home. I got there few minutes. After eleven o'clock I try to go to bed at around quarter to twelve and did not sleep well that night now. We're at Friday at eight thirty in the morning. My mom woke me up told me the taxes the door and wanted to talk to me. My mom already knew what happened to Lisa Techs told me that Lisa had been murdered and raped that night. You also mentioned stab wounds. I met up with text again slightly before noon at Arabica. It was there that he got hysterical. He was worried about people thinking that he did it because he loved his knife at the driver's house. Also when text mentioned the murderers. He told me that Lisa was found in the backyard of the Drivers House. Friday around noon Texan. I left for Arabica and headed for the shack. It was there that he was accusing Dan. dreifort of Lisa's murder. He was threatening to kill Dan of he found found out that Dan Killed Lisa. He also asked me to mention to the police.

He mentioned that he had been called in for questioning at least once as for today. Today I spent just about all day with Ken. It's Mojo and had very little contact with tax. I did see him tonight at the shack with Debbie and a lady named Becky I think her last name is Myers. Texts mentioned that he'd been called in four times. Now that brings us to when I was called in for questioning. I'm really worried that text did this. I hope it's not true but if he did this for me because of a crush on Lisa back around the time of the Germany trip. This'll be on my conscience forever.

I've known him since about eighth grade. We've been friends since then until now. I've known Lisa's since I was in tenth tenth grade. And I've known Kevin since I was in ninth grade Dan and Lisa than going out for a couple months now Kevin supposedly like Lisa for a long time. Now most girls blow Kevin off because he seems kind of weird. We read a rabbit. Shaker Square mean Shane McGee. We're standing by Shane's car talking with Kevin and we were talking about Dan. Dry Ford and Kevin Young said something like. I'd hate to be Dan because he doesn't get any play and me and Shane. McGee both laughed Kevin. Kevin was like. Why are you guys laughing? And we're both like because Dan gets a lot of play from girls and Kevin Young said. Well he's not getting any from Lisa Pruitt and I said yes he is he sleeping with her and Kevin just freaked. He was like that asshole that asshole I hate him. I'm going to kill kill him. I want her dead and then he stormed off and left me and Shane McGee later. That night I was talking to Kevin Young again. And he was saying that women were good for nothing thing except screwing them and throwing them away and how. There's really no point in them. Me and Shane McGee. We were both like okay. Kevin Right we dated Arabica little while longer and talk to some friends there and then me and Shane both left. Could you describe Kevin Young physically and where he lives if you know. He's about six feet tall about one hundred. Sixty one hundred and seventy pounds blonde blue eyed listen to heavy metal METALLICA and anthrax. Uh He basically doesn't like the world doesn't like Black Jews Polish people basically a typical areas supremacists type person. He's usually usually a lot of talk. He says things about people but then he's friends with them. He talks about people behind their backs. It's very hard for Kevin to get a girlfriend because his views on everything they are really strange. He'll be infatuated with a person in ninth grade. He was infatuated with a girl named Marissa Dolinsky and she was going out with a friend of mine named Bradhurst. I and we were in Canada and he was threatening that he would commit suicide unless Maria broke up with Brett and went out with him. Jeff Petty and Hans Boehner are both band directors at the high school school and they were both there and knew about with threatening this and took his sleeping pills from him. That was basically all I remember about that. Kevin does not get along with his parents. None of us is friends. Understand why his parents are great. He's a heavy drinker. He drinks by himself. He likes to get drunk and wander off by himself. He lives across the street from the high school in a White House with a swimming pool in the backyard. Don't know the address or the St the ever see Kevin Young Act in a violent manner manner. Not sure I like didn't hang around him a lot. The only time he came over was it parties. I'd say I don't know. Do you know of Kevin Young abuses any kind of drugs. I don't think so. I've never used them with him or seen him use them. Do you think Kevin Young would be capable of killing someone. Yes why just basically because of how he does talk and he can become very aggressive. I've never seen him get into a fight with another guy. But because of his basic eight for women because they spurn him because of the conversations that me and my friends have about him the strange things he says and does Kevin Young ever talk to you about sex. There's views on sex. He always wanted to get laid. It rarely happened. Like the only time was with Jackie Hale and that was like it he he hates fags he truly hates them anything. That's not straight he's like no he doesn't like it. I have actually seen him get aggressive. He wants to beat up a guy who was bisexual but he couldn't find him. Did he ever state. He wanted to have sex with Lisa PRUITT. Not that I can remember. You know a male by by the name of Ken Workman yes is he. A friend of Kevin. Young's yes I think so. Whenever I go up to our ATIKA being Kevin would go outside outside to see who is out there and if tex out there he would always go over there and say? Hey Hi how you doing. What's going on is Texan nickname for? Ken Workman yes. Did you discuss with anyone who you thought could be capable of killing Lisa Pruitt when you heard of murder. Yes Kevin Young and Dan's father other Dan's father Dan. Dan's father don't get along at all. Dan's father through dance. Friends is known as a very crazy man this. This is also viewed by his sister Debbie and most of her friends. Dan just got out of Cleveland Clinic and the reason that he came down to us is that one night he was reading a book and dance. Father came amen caught him reading it and flipped and that was the day before he got sent to the clinic. Why would you think that Dan's father would be capable of killing Lisa? Prove it was as as soon as I heard she was dead. I was thinking of who would have done it and I thought Dan wouldn't have done it but Dan's father would have done it but I- ruled that out last night when I found out that dance fathers send him outside to find out who was screaming. How did you hear about Dylan's father? Sending downside through Shane McGee then. I called Dance House in his sister told told me the same thing I ask. People knew Dan and why he wasn't sent away. And they basically said the same thing to your knowledge to D- android Ford's father have anything eighteen against Lisa Not as far as I know. When did these threats against the android fertilizer? PRUITT take place June of nineteen ninety. Do you you know if Kevin Young would carry any type of weapon. I think he had a knife a knife. That's it did you ever see him with the knife once or twice. Yeah Yeah I'd come downstairs and he'd have it out and say look at this and I'd say oh. Yeah whatever I think it was a switchblade or a lock knife I guess yes. It was standard black or Brown. I can't remember. Is there anything else that you wish to add to the statement there was a person. He talked to Pete man I think he's seventeen or eighteen. He's a senior at Shaker. Pete was the only one who could really stand Kevin. They talked a lot and Pete tried to get Kevin Girlfriend and tried to make him not so much. Loser tried to get him to go out. This interview with Jonathan. George was important to detectives. Because Georgia's statement implicates three men as possible suspects for the murder of Lisa Pruitt while taking the attention off his friend. Damn there was another young man who knew Lisa would be sneaking over to visit Dan. Dan late the night that she was killed. His name was Ken Workman known simply as Techs to friends. Police asked Dan driver a few questions about him that day. So on Thursday September Thirteenth Nineteen Ninety. Ninety I'll start off with the with the phone calls. I had Becca boat right called once at about eight thirty and I bite it her over and then she told me she was was tired and was gonna go to sleep during the conversation. She also spoke to texts workman in one or both of us may be mentioned that Lisa becoming Over I also spoke to Chris Jones and invited him over and he called back and told me he was too tired and was going to go to sleep. I don't remember the Times on either one of those those calls but both were raped before ten PM. A TEX workman came over. It was sometime before nine pm and he and I were sitting outside aside when Lisa Pruitt came over at about nine pm in left five or ten minutes later while they were both there Texan. I joked about cutting LISA PRUITT's hair to my knowledge. However there was no physical contact between Texas and Lisa then? I walked lease at her car. She left and I went back. Attacks Workman who is in need of cigarettes. I gave him some money and at approximately ten PM. He left on my bicycle for Shaker Square. I went inside and came out again. Probably Eleven PM defined text waiting with a pack of cigarettes and he told me that he wasn't going to sleep over. I let them keep the change for rapid fair and and gave him. Some of the cigarettes then went inside and watch the news. Did you see Tex Workman. Leave your residence after after you gave him the cigarettes and if so which direction did he go i. I saw turn to exit the backyard of via the driveway. To the best of your knowledge. Describe describe what he was wearing wearing either a white pair of tennis shoes or a pair of Air WAC viper high tops. Not Certain what else he was wearing. Have you ever known. Ken Workman to take the bus back to his house. No but he definitely. He's definitely taken the rapid to my knowledge anyway. Did you have any contact whatsoever.

"It's the kind of thing I listen for. When I hear something out of the ordinary I heard no other traffic the next thing I remember? Is Bob coming back in the room and I think he asked me if I should call the police and I said something like we're always calling them let someone else call them. Oh I said there are long gone what to use. What's the point? I fell asleep again. The next thing I know is Dan is waking us up and had a real hard time waking up so that I only heard little pieces like the police are here. Lisa's bicycle and I'm lying in bed with my eyes closed. Didn't WANNA wake up. Bob went downstairs somewhere in there. I realized that all this wasn't going to go away so I got up and threw on some clothes and went downstairs. The rest is really muddled from this point on. I just remember snatches like snapshots. Sometimes we were downstairs. Sometimes we were upstairs at one point when we were upstairs. I saw a couple embraced on the sidewalk. And I said Bob that must be Lisa's parents. Let's Dan at that. Point had already gone to his room and closed the door so had spoken to him before that. I don't remember what so we went down and talk to her parents. At that point we were under the impression that she had been abducted and we offered that they should come in or is there anything that we can do. and Mr Pruitt got excited at some policeman and I thought we should go back in. I got the feeling they might not be aware that we were there another time. I remember seeing the neighbor across the street in her nightgown and looked out the window. Occasionally and I remember I kept thinking. Why are they still here? We have wooden slat blinds. So there's no way to look out without physically getting up and lifting the slats. I didn't think this is where are they should be that they should be out looking for her at another point in time. I remember saying to Bob. They've got flashlights. Are Looking around another point. We again went downstairs stairs outside to again. Ask if there was anything we could do. We felt prior to that. We want to leave the police alone to let them do what they had to do. They told US someone. Someone would be an in in a few minutes to take statements so we went back inside and eventually someone did come shortly after. I saw Mrs Hall in her nightgown in front of her house. She he called on the telephone. I'm not surprised she asked what was happening. who had been killed and I said to our what do you mean kill? Did the police tell you that. And she said something like no but there is is a body or they found a body or something like that. I know she's the neighborhood gossip and I'm very careful with my. She might lead to conclusions. I told her we didn't know anything saying we didn't know about any body. Another thing she said was that the police wouldn't tell her if the person was black or white male or female. I told her that a girlfriend was going to visit Dan in response to that statement and I told her to please not say anything to anybody. I told her that much because she had gone great length about hearing someone breaking branches and her dog dog barking and seemed quite upset. She had heard the screams. Also another reason I was hesitant about calling. The police was a couple of times. Bob had gone to help people who seem to be in distress and it was a joke and they laugh at him and took off our swore at him so I always tried to prevent him for putting himself out like that when you arrived home home after shopping as you stated shortly before nine pm do recall what your son. Dan was wearing at that time. One of his t shirts and a pair of shorts shorts. All his shorts are colorful and all t shirts are white with something on the front of them. So that's it. Would you say this short sword light or dark in color. I don't don't remember. Do you recall what type of shoes he was wearing somewhere between the time of five thirty. PM and the time I went to bed he and I had a conversation about the shoes. He was wearing tennis shoes. I can't put it down any closer than that except I know. They weren't the holy ones at that point after we got home from shopping. I don't know if I noticed issues. Could you describe describe Kim rathbone where she lives in our relationship with Dan in your family. The rathbone property adjoins ours at the career. Line for about fifty feet. She is a classmate of Dan's at the high school is also in the band. They have many fence talks last year. She was his wakeup service in that she called called every morning at seven. AM so they would have to come to the phone and would help. Wake him up. She is going with one of his longtime very good friend. Who is Bryan? Keating to your knowledge does or did Kim rathbone have any type of romantic relationship with your son definitely. Not they're just friends in the body of your statement. You state that some time after nine pm after Lisa Pruitt and our father had left that female whose voice you recognize As Liza Pruitt called on the telephone for Dan. Do you know at approximately what time that was. It's hard to tell he got back to back phone calls else. It's my impression because I remember thinking she was just here that it was about nine thirty or nine forty five PM. But I'm not sure after Dean talk to Lisa during during this phone call. Did he relate to you any content of the conversation now. I don't think I was even in the room. I don't usually ask. It can on his phone calls. Are you aware of any one else who had dated or a romantic type relationship with Lisa. Pruitt no do you recall what time that. Ken Workman left your home on the evening of September Thirteenth Nineteen Ninety. He was gone by ten five. PM for sure. Because I looked out on the patio I told Dan he had to be gone by ten PM. Did you see can workman anytime. I am later than that that evening. Now on the night of September Thirteenth Nineteen Ninety. Did you see Chris Jones or any other or any other of your son's friends your residents. I don't think so I don't remember. Remember the scream that you stated you heard when you're lying in bed. Could you tell me approximately what time that was at some point while I was lying there from the time the scream to the time Bob got back to the room I looked at the clock and it said twelve thirty two. Am after you heard the scream. Did your son Dan. Dan Come into your room at anytime. Yes could you approximate the time between. You're hearing the scream and when you saw your son I heard come into the room and speak within a minute. Forty five seconds to a minute after the scream. Could you describe as best as you can if this scream you heard was from a male or female. Young or old impression was that it was a female. Not Child not elderly. Would you say that the scream team was from someone in distress. Yes was the screaming you heard a continuous one or was it. A series of shorter screams. Continuous could you estimate the time from when you heard the scream until you heard what what you stated was a was a vehicle pulling off from the area in front of Your House Dan and Bob. We're going down the stairs so it had to be roughly around one minute after. You're from the sound of the vehicle. Could you determine the direction and was traveling. Definitely south towards southland. You stated that you heard two separate dippers sounds as if this vehicle was changing gears. Is that correct. Yes I did state that it was like room room. It was a heavy sound. I remember thinking what what the hell was that. I hear a lot of traffic so I know a bus a motorcycle a sedan and it was definitely not one of those unless the Muffler was modified in some way because it have been a truck back yes after you have woken and you are aware that the please were on the scene and that something had obviously occurred word would conversation you have with your son. Concerning this incident. We spoke very little. I could tell he was upset. I asked him some questions which he answered. Pretty much and monosyllables. I cannot specifically remember what I asked him at the time as opposed to some later time just enough to understand that without our knowing it that he had arranged Lisa for her to come. Come over I remember now that he said she had said she would probably come over. I'm would throw gravel or something at his window. Does Dan Mention to you that he had found the bike. The bushes that it was. Lisa prudes bike. I'm not sure I'd already heard some of that. And how I found out those details I don't know when as I woke lowcock. There was Lisa Pruitt and bike and so when I heard it I don't really remember. Do you recall dance on you. That he believed Lisa PRUITT had been conducted. He never said that. That was in my mind zero anything else that you wish to add to the statement now..

"And proceeded home arriving there at approximately nine mpm when we pulled into our driveway. We are greeted at the backyard gate by Dan and a friend of his by the name of Ken. I believe his name is workman. Dan indicated that Ken had heard that Dan was home in wanted to visit. Since this was a long distance called Church to my phone the starting in time of the call would be accurately recorded by the phone company which is. At and T.. During that conversation my wife I spoke with Deborah with my wife speaking on the phone in the adjacent Dan and me on the bedroom phone during the entire conversation I was sitting on the bed and Dan was at the foot of the bed. Listening listening to the conversation at some point asked Debra if she would like to speak to Dan to which she responded affirmatively at that time. Dan moved to the Dan adjacent to my bedroom and my wife and I remained in the bedroom. Dan then spoke to my daughter alone until the end of that conversation and which was approximately twelve. Fifteen am at that time. Daniel went to his room and I began to read a book in my bed. My my wife was at first reading later turned over and went to sleep at approximately twelve thirty. Am I heard a shrill in lengthy scream coming from the area in front of our house. The head of my bed is against the Lee road side of the House. And there's a window adjacent. The window was closed although the storm window was up. Although we're used to unusual sounds and activities emanating from Lee Road at all times of the day and night. This scream was particularly distressing and alarming. I immediately called out to Daniel. who was in his bedroom? This was relatively easy due to the fact that we had a connecting bathroom between our two room and the door. My side of the bathroom was open. I said something to the fact of Dan. Did you hear that to achieve responded. Yes I then heard him move to his window facing Lee road and hurt the window. Being opened by myself immediately turned off the table lamp on my bedside table and lifted the panel on the Venetian Asian blind and looked out till he rode. I said nothing unusual as I looked out. I can't recall whether there was any vehicular the traffic at the time but things did seem quite quiet while I was looking out the window. Dan came into my bedroom. My first inclination was to run outside and see what happened. Realizing I was stark naked. I quickly looked at Dan to determine if he was more fully. Close the NI- seeing that he had on essentially the same clothes on that he had been wearing the last time I saw him. I particularly noted it and even questioned him about whether he had anything on his feet. Why then noticed? He was wearing a pair of brown mock since this was important to me because because I knew he could get out quicker than me. Dan Ran downstairs to the front door while I quickly put on a pair of blue jogging pants and a t shirt and a pair of sandals a slip on sandals. I quickly Rian downstairs after Dan. By the time I was on the first floor of the house. Dan had opened the front door in storm door which we kept locked and bolted and was proceeding down the steps and across the lawn toward Lee road. I may sell only went as far as our front steps at that time. Ask Dan if he saw anything. He was looking in all directions but primarily towards south woodland. and which is in fact the direction that I thought the sounds were coming from. Dan told me saw nothing unusual. I don't know his exact words but they indicated that there was no unusual activity at the time. Nothing looked out of place to me either again. The general traffic patterns seem quite as well at that time. Danae return to the house. Neither one of us left the bounds of our property. We locked the doors and return to the upstairs bedroom a dream my wife remained in bed. We told her what we'd seen or not seen. There was a brief discussion about perhaps calling the police release. I don't remember what my wife and sunset but remember saying or thinking that we'd seen nothing unusual and then it probably wasn't necessary what was going through my mind at that time was that the screams may been coming from a passing car and that the person person in distress had probably left the area then went back to bed and began to read my book my wife Turnover and went back to sleep. I I fell asleep after reading less than a page of the buck and was woken by my son that time. He was telling me something about Lisa in a bicycle in the police. It wasn't understanding while because I was just coming out of a fairly sound sleep but I quickly grasped that something further was going on related to the scream I had heard earlier. I still had on the clothes I put on to go and investigate the scream. So immediately went downstairs with Dan to. Let's see what was happening. Dan and I walked out to the front of the property down the driveway. At which point I noticed two police cars parked next to the curb. There was no policemen incite. Dan was telling me something about finding Lisa's bicycle and calling the police. I couldn't understand why Lisa's bicycle would be near our house. I gradually found out by questioning. Dan that Leeson he had communicated some time that evening. Doc and that Lisa had indicated to him that she wanted desperately to see him because she had not seen him much during the past month that he'd been in the hospital hospital. They had apparently discussed the possibility that Lisa would come to our house that evening. I asked Dan. How would he know that Lisa was coming? I mean and he mentioned something about her planning to throw a pebble at his window. Dan was at that point. Obviously upset distressed by what he'd seen. He told me that he had found. Lisa's bicycle in the bushes of the house just to the south of ours that information coupled with the screen remind heard earlier increased my own anxiety greatly. I begin to worry more about what might have happened at twelve thirty am I am. I don't know the exact time that all of this occurred but it will be sometime after the policeman had arrived and spoken talking with my son at that point. Dan and I returned to her house. Dan Sat and watched television on the the first floor while my wife and I tried to reconstruct what had happened and to see if there was anything we could do to help the officers. There's at the scene. Were quite preoccupied with their work therefore there was not much that we could do so he tried to keep out of their way at one in point my wife and I saw what appeared to be civilians on our tree lawn in embrace we immediately went out to see if there was anything we could do to help and immediately encountered the parents of Lisa paranoid at that time. We asked them if they knew what was happening. Mr Pruitt said it looked as if there was a dead girl in the bushes. He attended to move in the direction of the bushes in question and was restrained by an officer. My wife and I offered to have the Peretz come into our home until the police needed them. They refused our our offer and having nothing else to do we went back into our house. We came out one more time and spoke to a uniformed officer asking if we could help or if he knew what had happened at that point he said they were dealing with foul play and we began to suspect the worst. We went back into the house and stayed there until the plain clothes police rang our bell. At which point. We escorted escorted them to our dining room table and provided a statement which included some of the above. By this time Daniel had gone to his bedroom turned out the light and was asleep sometime. Prior to the arrival of the plainclothesman our neighbor across the street Mrs Hall Telephone Spoke Primarily Talk to my wife in an attempt to find out if we knew what had happened in the course of that conversation Mrs Hall. Use The word murder. During part of that conversation I listened in on our extension. My wife mentioned something to Mrs Hall about Dan's girlfriend and her bicycle but stated that we knew nothing about a murder. This was in fact before the officer had used the term foul play to us. Mrs Hall was obviously prying for Information and my wife tried to cut her off without discussing the matter. Further until more facts were known. Mrs Hall is something of a gossip and we didn't want to feed information to her. This is detective. Richard Mullany with Shaker Heights. Police Department interviewing one Robert C.. Dreifort dreifort what do you give me your son's full name please. Daniel Robert Dreifort is your son student. And if so where yes shaker heights. High School to your knowledge. How long has your son known Lisa? pruitt they'd been classmates classmates for at least a year as far as I know they've also been members of the marching band for as long as two years and I'm not sure if they knew each other in junior high school. I'm only recently aware of her becoming a special friend among the many friends that Dan has and I have I've heard him referred to her as his girlfriend a few times over the past six months. She's been a guest in her home on a couple of -CATIONS and I'm sure they've met socially through mutual friends and acquaintances and share interests. Could you tell me who Ken Workman is where he lives and his phone number. If you you haven't. Ken Workman is a friend of my daughter. And my son he lives in an apartment on North Moreland. Me have his address and phone phone number at home. But I don't know what offhand was there any friction between yourself and your son over his relationship with Lisa pruitt absolutely not in fact my wife and I had gone out of our way to invite Lisa to spend the entire afternoon with us when Dan and was visiting home last Sunday. September Ninth Nineteen Ninety. Unfortunately I never got to know Lisa. Very well only having met at her a couple of occasions but she seemed like a nice girl and one that I approved a Dan spending his time with. Were you aware that Lisa Pruitt was to visit your son between twelve thirty. Am and one am on the morning of September Fourteenth Nineteen Ninety. No now the first time I had an inkling of that was when Dan Awoke me and announced that he had found the bicycle and the police were outside. Were you aware at any time. Prior to the above incident that Lisa Pruitt may have visited your son under similar circumstances. No I had no inkling that may have happened when you and your wife were in your bedroom just prior to hearing the scream you stated that your bedroom and your son's bedroom have a bathroom in between and at the door leading from the bathroom to your bedroom was open. Was the door or leading from the bathroom to your son's bedroom open. No so that I understand you correctly from where you're lying in your bed. You could not visually see your son in his room. Is that correct. I could not see him when you first heard the scream outside and you and your son went to investigate. Did your son come into your room prior to going downstairs and outside.
