Carver claimed that Brooks asked for a lift home and that he saw them “holding and strolling together” while speaking to the 17-year-old lad.
“He acknowledged that he agreed to give her a ride because he did not want to leave her while highly intoxicated and the pub was finishing up.”
Carver told the investigators that he was the driver, Lee was in the front passenger seat, while Washington, the 17-year-old, and Brooks were in the rear.
He claimed that when he asked Brooks for her address, she tripped and was unable to respond; as a result, he drove a short distance and pulled over.
Carver said that he “overheard” his 17-year-old friend asking the victim five times if she wanted to have sex with him to which she replied “yes”
He claimed that after having intercourse with Brooks, the 17-year-old and Washington, Brooks told them, “We’ve got to stop this, let’s go.”
During the police interview, when questioned if he believed the woman to be too intoxicated to consent to intercourse, Carver responded, “I guess.”
Washington was also questioned by the police. He expressed his sorrow over Brooks’ passing but also acknowledged that he had laughed earlier as he walked behind her and wondered, “How y’all meet a random chick and just carry her home?”
