Transcript-Interrogation Of Kayla Ludarac

Interrogation Officer: Sgt. Adam Dalton

Officials Present: Marissa Rodriguez (Child Protective Services), Dr. Frederick Keats (County Sheriff's Department Child Psychologist)

Location: County Sheriff's Office

Date: 11/12/2012

Time: 3:30 PM

Dalton: Good afternoon, Kayla. I'm Detective Adam Dalton, and I'm here to ask you a few questions. You don't have to talk if you don't want to. I know things are a little crazy right now, but I need to sort some of this out. Is that alright with you? You still won't speak? Well, I'm going to ask my questions anyway. Have your mother or father hurt you in any way? Are they ever verbally abusive? Listen Kayla, you're sixteen years old, and as far as I'm concerned, that is old enough to make your own decision about speaking to me. If you don't want to talk, that's fine, but this whole mess will be easier to sort out if you tell me some of the things I want to know. Has she talked to either of you yet?

Rodriguez: Not a word.

Keats: No.

Dalton: Can you tell me about the marks on your body, Kayla? No? Let's try something easier. Where do you go to school, Kayla?

Ludarac: [Indiscernible]

Dalton: What was that?

Ludarac: Haven Park High.

Dalton: Do you know Amy Welker?

Ludarac: Yeah.

Dalton: My partner spoke with her. She is, apparently, very concerned about you.

Ludarac: So?

Dalton: So, can you tell us why she might be concerned?

Ludarac: Because she didn't mind her own business.

Dalton: She's your friend. Your welfare is the business of your friends.

Ludarac: Whatever.

Dalton: Part of the reason you are in protective custody is because of the marks your school nurse found on you during the exam. Did your parents do that to you?

Ludarac: No.

Dalton: Did you do it to yourself? Kayla?

Keats: Some people find comfort in hurting themselves, Kayla. If that's what you're doing, it means that you need help for the pain you're feeling. I know it's hard to admit something like that, but no one here is judging or wants to hurt you. You're here because we want you to be alright. We're only here to help.

Ludarac: [EXPLETIVE DELETED] off.

Dalton: Did you do that to yourself Kayla? We found a razor blade with your blood on it in your house.

Ludarac: Yeah, I did it. I'm a freak. I'm a total [EXPLETIVE DELETED] psychopath. I love blood. It makes me feel good.

Dalton: Sarcasm won't make this go any easier or faster, Kayla.

Ludarac: Whatever.

Dalton: We talked to your brother too. Oh, now I've got your attention.

Ludarac: What did Coop say?

Dalton: What do you think he said?

Ludarac: Never mind, I don't care.

Dalton: He told us some very interesting things. He told us about your parents. No? More silent treatment? Okay, well he also told us about Lucy.

Ludarac: What did he say about Lucy?

Dalton: What do you think he said?

Ludarac: You're full of [EXPLETIVE DELETED]. He didn't say jack.

Dalton: Really? Are you sure? You are positive he wouldn't mention anything about Lucy, like say her- what was it-ah yes, her caw thin.

Ludarac: [EXPLETIVE DELETED] you, you [EXPLETIVE DELETED] piece of [EXPLETIVE DELETED]. You have no right to talk to my brother about that. He's only six for [EXPLETIVE DELETED] sake. He doesn't even [EXPLETIVE DELETED] know what happened.

Keats: Detective, ease up please.

Dalton: Well if he doesn't know, maybe you can enlighten me, Kayla. What happened to Lucy?

Ludarac: Go [EXPLETIVE DELETED] yourself.

Dalton: How did you get those marks on your body, Kayla?

Keats: Detective, maybe we should stop.

Dalton: No. How did you get those marks on your body, Kayla? Did your parents make them?

Ludarac: No.

Dalton: Did you?

Ludarac: No.

Dalton: Then how did they get there?

Ludarac: I don't know.

Dalton: What do you mean you don't know?

Keats: Detective.

Ludarac: They just showed up, alright?

Dalton: That doesn't make any sense, Kayla. How did the marks get on your body?

Ludarac: I don't know. I don't know. I don't know. I woke up one morning and they were all there, all over my body, you [EXPLETIVE DELETED] [EXPLETIVE DELETED]. I don't know how or why, they were just there. [EXPLETIVE DELETED]. They hurt so much. I don't want them. Are you happy now, you piece of [EXPLETIVE DELETED]?

Rodriguez: I'll get you some tissues, honey.

[Rodriguez Exits]

Ludarac: [EXPLETIVE DELETED].

Keats: Detective, this is too much.

Dalton: You're old enough to know who Gaines, Sitersin, Krast and Bates are. You do know who they are, correct?

Ludarac: Yes. I want to go.

Dalton: You can once we're done.

Keats: Detective.

Dalton: Did your father kill them?

Ludarac: I don't know.

[Rodriguez Enters]

Rodriguez: There you go, sweetie. It's alright.

Dalton: Tell me everything, Kayla.

Ludarac: I can't. I don't know what happened. I don't know. I don't know. Please can I go? I don't know what happened. I want to go. Please let me go.

Keats: Detective, I have to insist that we stop this interrogation immediately.

Dalton: Fine.
