Patricia Bishops interviewed by Robert Mills
November 27, 2016
Mills: Patricia. I'm here to ask a few more questions and follow up on the details of the case.
Bishops: It's Pax.
Mills: I have to refer to you by your proper name for all legal purposes.
Bishops: Legal purposes are dumb, and I've already answered thousands of questions.
Mills: Even so, I have to make sure that the details are consistent. It's possible that you remembered something new that could prove your innocence.
Bishops: What could prove my innocence better than a solid alibi? An alibi I already had, mind you.
Mills: Lets start there then. Where were you on October 22, 2015?
Bishops: I was at my boyfriend's house. I don't see what this has to do with the case though.
Mills: I want all the information possible. Please continue with the details.
Bishops: (sigh) I was at my boyfriend's house, 2564 Leden Lane, and I was breaking up with him.
Mills: Why were you breaking up with him?
Bishops: We had both decided that the relationship wasn't going to work out because he was moving to California and I was moving to Tennessee.
Mills: What were the reasons for the move?
Bishops: His or mine?
Bishops: I was moving because a high paying job opened up that I was hired for. He was moving because he hates-hated our hometown and he was going to go to school there and hopefully start working in the movies.
Mills: You said the breakup was mutual. How long had you been discussing it?
Bishops: He had decided about a month before that he would be leaving, and I had found out that day that I had gotten the job. Somewhere in between then it was sort of decided without talking. I had just gone to his house to officially do it and get my stuff.
Mills: What stuff? It wasn't mentioned in any of the other reports.
Bishops: That's because I never got it. He said that he didn't know where it was. It wasn't anything really important, just a few books and clothes and general items.
Mills: Do you know where the stuff ended up?
Bishops: No. I went back over the next day to help him look and that was when I was arrested.
Mills: Why didn't you help him look that day?
Bishops: Because I had to pack!
Mills: Calm down, Patricia.
Bishops: I hate answering endless questions. It makes me want to bang my head against a wall and puke at the same time.
Mills: Do you want to take a break? I can leave for fifteen minutes and bring back something for you to eat.
Bishops: I guess that would be fine. They never have good food here though.
Mills: Next time I'll bring you something else, does that sound good?
