Q .... Was it your intention that the individual who was in your room be caught?
Q. You didn't want him caught?
A. I did not want him caught.
Q. ...That is because you thought at the time it was Quintin Dailey.
A. That is true.
Q. And if he got away, you were going to let the whole matter drop, at least at that point?
A. That is true.
Reynes, who wasn't a witness at the hearing, says, "I saw [the young woman] on her way back to the bathroom where she was going to peer out from the slats. She was obviously panic-stricken. I didn't have my glasses on—my vision is 20/100—and things were blurry, but I did see a person walk down the hall. He was a black guy, 6'2", dark jacket, green pants. Dark complected, slender, strong. He went by where [the young woman] was peering through the slats. I said, 'Can I help you?' He started running, and I chased him down a fire escape. Then he started to swing something. It might have been a belt, I couldn't see. I kept up the pursuit. I just wanted to get a look at him. I thought he was some black guy out of the ghetto by USF. He was very fast. I went down Clayton Street for a block, then he turned left and went into a space between two buildings. I didn't see where he had gone, and I went past him. I came back, and then I saw him. At that point he looked me in the eye, and he said, 'You want to play hero? I'll show you a hero!' I was very scared, and he started chasing me. A lady was getting out of a car, an orange car, it might have been a Pinto, and I said, 'Call the police!' I got a look at him, but I couldn't make out his face. I wasn't even close enough to say it was Quintin Dailey or someone else. I couldn't recognize the person. Basically, I guess, I'm a worthless witness."
Confino advised the young woman to see Dr. Sue Shoff in the USF Counseling Center. Before she did, she returned upstairs, showered and dressed. At 8 she had to attend a meeting for desk clerks, and then at about 9:30 she went to see Confino again. She was very distraught and very tired. Confino again urged her to see Shoff, and this time he accompanied her to Shoff's office. The young woman told both of them what had happened that night, and for the first time she mentioned Quintin Dailey by name.
