Samuel Southall stated he was informed by his son Phillip Southall that a Pamela Redman had stolen the vehicle from his residence, court records show.

According to court documents, Samuel Southall stated that Redman began throwing her items from the vehicle then left on foot running toward Coper Fork Road.
Saltsgaver spoke with Phillip Southall who stated he had allowed Redman to stay at his residence for a few days and that during the course of the evening she became angry and out of control, court documents show. Phillip Southall stated Redman left the residence and loaded her belongings into the vehicle. Phillip Southall stated that he told Redman multiple times not to leave in the vehicle and she allegedly did anyway.
Samuel Southall stated he and his wife own the vehicle and it is registered to his wife Mary Southall, court documents show. Samuel Southall said that neither he nor his wife in any way gave Redman permission to drive the vehicle. Samuel Southall stated he and his wife wished to pursue criminal charges.

The vehicle was left in the possession of Samuel Southall who also stated that Redman left with the keys to the vehicle, according to court documents.
A search of the area was conducted but officers were not able to locate Redman.
On June 21, around 1:47 a.m., Samuel Southall again called the Jackson County 911 Center and reported that Redman had returned to 649 Beaty Run and again took the same Dodge Durango. Samuel Southall stated Phillip Southall was receiving text messages from Redman stating he would never get his vehicle back, court records allege.
