Point of Discovery/Informant Bio

Informant: Derek Lee is 17 years old. He is a senior at Green Canyon High School. He is involved in many extracurricular academic clubs and associations. He lives in North Logan, UT

Context

Context: Derek told me this at our kitchen table on evening. He was telling stories he’d heard that he didn’t know whether or not they were true.

Text

Text: I heard a couple months ago that the Youngs’s [neighbors] had a cousin named La-A and it was pronounced “La-dash-a.” I thought it was true at first but then I told it to some friends and they had heard it about other people, so I think it’s probably made up

Texture

Texture: Derek, as explained in the text, didn’t believe this story at the time he told it. He was pretty casual about it and wasn’t too excited, likely due to the fact that he no longer believes the story was true
