with 2 comments

The prosecution is still playing the recording of Fred’s first statement to deputies.

They were off tape for a few minutes.

Interview with Fred on December 27th continues…

You see how this looks, do you have any idea how something like this happened? – detective asks

“I don’t see her doing something like this” – Fred says about Kellie.

You see how this looks for you? – detective

Do they know what time this happened? asked Fred.

Detectives say the murder happened sometime around midnight.

Fred says he has never been to Steve and Michelle’s house. He says they won’t find his DNA because he wasn’t there. “I wasn’t there. I did not do this.”

Detectives asked about his scratches again. Says he got them working, happens everyday.

Says he wasn’t there at the Gateway house.

Detective says that’s hard to believe, he was distraught about his relationship with Kellie ending.

Do you treat her that badly. He says he’s a little disrespectful sometimes, but never touches her.

“How do you explain all this? This looks bad” – detective

Says his mom saw him go back in the house that night.  She was getting a glass of water.

“You still don’t have an alibi” “all the motive in the world” – detectives.

Says he worked on the carbeurator and lights.

They asked Fred if anyone saw him that night. He says his neighbor might have – who lives on the right hand side. Not sure what time says he had been out there for a while.

“Looks pretty bad for you” – detective.

“You never followed her to see where she was going.” “I never suspected she was seeing somebody. ”

Kellie told him he wasn’t treating her right when they broke up.  He says he didn’t like it but there was nothing he could do about it.

What did Kellie say when you talked to her about this? Fred says not much. She started crying and she wanted to verify it.

Says he heard it from one of the TV stations and verified it from the News Press website. Says it was right on the home page.

Interview complete around 9:30 p.m.
