Officer: Okay, we're recording now... Thomas? Would you like to start from the beginning?
Thomas: Am I......?
Officer: Yes Thomas you're safe... Now would you like to start from the beginning so we may try to understand the events that happened?
Thomas: Okay... My daughter Jessica... she'd been outside playing at a friend's house and we only lived up the street. Th-they actually lived up the street. I'm sorry. Um...

So... I...
Officer: Is this where you left the house looking for her?
Thomas: Yes... We lived in a wooded area, and I knew she liked playing there with friends, but going alone didn't make sense.
Officer: Okay, so what happened next?
Thomas: I was calling Jessica's name, and it had really been getting dark out now. I was walking through the woods, looking and listening to anything... I remember suddenly feeling sick, like nauseous in the stomach, like I wanted to throw up. And I started to get a ringing in my ears... then I...

Officer: It's okay. Can you please describe what he looked like?

Officer: It's okay Thomas. Please continue.
