Last week, I did a post speculating that Hae might have been coming from Drama tryouts on January 13th when Becky saw her tell Adnan that she couldn't give him a ride because she had "something else" to do. You can find most of the basis for my speculation in that post, including Becky seemingly saying that Hae was involved in Drama in January and Hae herself indicating in her diary that she had helped with Drama in the past. What we do know is that Becky said that she was going to pick up her sister Diane from Drama tryouts when she saw Hae.
In following up on this Drama lead, I reached out to a Woodlawn graduate who was a member of the Drama club back in 1999 to see whether she had any insight into this scenario. Here was her response:
Diane was my best friend in high school, and we both were in drama club for a number of years. Becky was involved in one of the earlier plays we did. Becky/Hae/Adnan's class year of magnet students and Diane/my year were all close as were all the magnet years, as there were a lot of sibling groups across the years. Hae did field hockey, but she stopped by the auditorium where drama club was sometimes. We all supported each other's after school clubs and teams.
So, was Hae coming from Drama tryouts on January 13th? It seems to be a distinct possibility. The person I contacted had no specific recollection of the 13th, but maybe there is someone who was at Drama tryouts on that day who does have such a recollection. And maybe they have that one piece of information we've all been searching for: What were Hae's plans on the afternoon of January 13th?
