The victim also told Lonz and Lyon the two did not engage in sexual intercourse, according to the police report. She also told the officers she could not remember the exact dates of the encounters.
The victim also reported that the relationship developed over several months when she would ride the bus. The bus route covers downtown Los Alamos.
