READ: Prosecutors Release Interrogation Transcripts of Murder Suspect Carlos Kennedy

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, Alabama -

For two hours, the jury watched and listened to the interrogation video of Carlos Kennedy, which was recorded two months after Zoa White's murder.


During the interrogation, the defendant changes his story several times. First, Kennedy claims he'd never been inside the victim's house.

INVESTIGATOR: "The house you saw on the news you ever been in that house"


But later he says:

KENNEDY: "I just helped her move some items upstairs, so I saw the house, it was pretty junkie."

The story changes again. Investigators push further, showing Kennedy photos of White's mutilated body. When asked why his fingerprints were in her house, Kennedy says:

KENNEDY: "No, no, what I'm saying was um I was sleeping with her.

INVESTIGATOR: "You were sleeping with her. So why did you kill her?"

KENNEDY: "I didn't kill her."

During the two-hour interrogation, Carlos Kennedy never once admitted to killing Zoa White.

In 2012, a typed letter was sent to the WKRG newsroom from a person claiming to be Carlos Kennedy. In the letter, he maintains his innocence, and says he is angry at the judge for refusing to let him represent himself.


According to jail records, Kennedy was living at the Fontainebleau Apartments on Mobile Infirmary Blvd at the time of the murder. The apartments are exactly .2 miles from Zoa White's home on Springhill Avenue - just a few minutes walking distance.

Police have said all along this was not a random act of violence. They say Kennedy singled out his 69-year-old victim, watched her, and planned the break-in.

Kennedy has an interesting criminal record, with only one other charge: Indecent Exposure. Police say he exposed himself and masturbated in front of a woman while installing a TV connection in her home back in 2009.
