Phone interview with Lt. Stryde Jones is a competent interview – keeps his cool. He manages to answer the questions without behaving poorly. He has been the one the sheriff’s office has allowed to speak, obviously because he is able to handle himself and be politic enough to not add even more fuel to the flames.
If I were not better acquainted with the elements of the case and heard this, I would give Stryde the benefit of the doubt. As it stands, it would appear he is a dynamite spinner in the wreck that is his office’s current state of affairs.
