On 17 July 2008 Melich received a call from Melissa England, a friend of Troy Brown. She was in town on 2 July and met Casey for the first time. She spent time with Casey on 3 July. While inside a Target store, Casey received a call from Cynthia. Melissa said Casey was obviously irritated and it appeared to be an annoyed conversation. Melissa overheard Casey speaking about financial issues and Casey also mentioned the “KID was with the nanny”. Melissa said that over the several hours he spent with Casey on 3 July, Casey hardly mentioned she had a child. Melissa found it odd.
