Police first interviewed Richardson on July 14, 2017. This interrogation took place two days after Richardson told Dr. Casey Boyce about the burial of her newborn baby.

Richardson is a former high school cheerleader that is facing life in prison for allegedly killing and burying her newborn daughter days after her senior prom.

Her defense team claims the child was stillborn and there was no evidence of trauma that caused Annabelle’s death. The prosecution claims the child was carried full-term before the alleged crime.

After the police interviewed Richardson, her parents were able to come see her for the first time after learning what their daughter did without their knowledge.
