Interview with Frederica McDuffie
QUESTION 22
MADISON DAVIS LACY:

Pick up the story from where you first seen Arthur.

FREDERICA MCDUFFIE:

When I went in to see Arthur, I said to myself, "No, this is not Arthur. This is not an accident."

MADISON DAVIS LACY:

Let's stop for a second, please.



MADISON DAVIS LACY:

All right, go back to the point where we were, the first time you saw Arthur.

FREDERICA MCDUFFIE:

The first time I seen Arthur in the hospital, I stated to myself that this is not Arthur, this is not an accident, as they said it was.

MADISON DAVIS LACY:

We've got to stop again.

FREDERICA MCDUFFIE:

Oh my God.


MADISON DAVIS LACY:

First time I saw him--

FREDERICA MCDUFFIE:

The first time I seen Os--Arthur in the hospital--

MADISON DAVIS LACY:

Try it one more time, you flubbed that.

FREDERICA MCDUFFIE:

The first time I seen Arthur in the hospital, I said to myself, "This is not Arthur. This was not an accident." Arthur's head was so swollen, there's no features in his face at all. Arthur's eyes were totally popped out. The neck was nowhere to be found on Arthur, I mean, it was just totally swollen all up. Arthur's body was more bruises and more scratches from the ground, was just totally all over his legs and his arms, and the total body movement was just, just a jerk movement. And I'm saying to myself, "No accident could look like this."
