Patricia Bishops interviewed by Robert Mills
November 28, 2016
Mills: Hello again Patricia.
Mills: Are you ready for more questions?
Bishops: As ready as I'll ever be.
Mills: Who's the next person you can think of who might have a grudge against either sibling?
Bishops: It would probably be... (pause) ... Ollie uh... (pause) Jackson. Yeah, his last name is Jackson.
Mills: Okay. Is Ollie a nickname?
Bishops: Yeah for Oliver I think.
Mills: How did Oliver know Veronica and Gavin?
Bishops: Ollie was Veronica's boyfriend back in Freshman Year. They had a pretty rough breakup.
Mills: How rough?
Bishops: There was a bit of roughhousing involved. Especially from Gavin.
Bishops: Veronica was caught cheating on Ollie. He took it pretty hard. Took him a while to get over it...
Mills: But he did get over it?
Bishops: I think so. I didn't talk to him much. He and Veronica were in a grade below me, so we didn't have any classes together. (pause) It was also about six years ago. I'm only bringing it up because of the physical confrontation.
Mills: Did you have any contact with Oliver after graduation?
Bishops: No. Like I said, I didn't talk to him much.
Bishops: Didn't they do all this research before when looking into the case? I definitely gave my lawyer most of these names.
Mills: Why didn't you mention that yesterday?
Bishops: This gives me something to do. It's not like I have an endless amount of time or anything.
Mills: But it could be saving my time.
Bishops: I figured you were asking to hear it for yourself.
[knock at door]
Mills: Come in.
Soutter: I have her food. When would you like to take a break for lunch?
Mills: In a minute or two. I'll come out when we're ready.
Mills: When did you give your lawyer this list?
Bishops: I'm hungry.
Mills: I need to know about the list.
Bishops: Can we eat first? If you want I can write out the names.
Mills: I would rather you say them so that we can have them on record.
Bishops: Can we do it after lunch? I've been up since seven.
Mills: I suppose.
