After searching the area with Deputy Nichols, they gathered more information from the neighbors that Ernest was frequenting the original residence, where they contacted Summer.

The Deputies returned to Summer's address and asked again if she knew Ernest, this time using his full name Ernest Ivan Winder. Summer claimed to know Ernest at that time, but only by Ivan, and stated she didn't know him well.
