Supplemental Report

1. Incident Number: 951009027
2. Victim's Name: Kimble, Patricia
3. Day/Date/Time of Report: Mon Oct 16 15:49:43 EDT 1995

4. Narrative:
On 10/12/95 I talked to Harvey Apple, Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Co., 706 Green Valley Road, GSO, NC, 275-0881.


Mr. Apple says that he has insured Ted Kimble for $100,000, this policy in effect since 6/9/90. On 6/28/94, Ted Kimble changed his primary beneficiary from his mother, Edna, to Patricia Blakley Kimble, his wife.

On 2/24/95 Mr. Apple ran into Ted Kimble, but he does not recall where this occurred. Mr. Apple says that he may have gone to Lyles Building materials and called on Kimble. Mr. Apple and Kimble discussed increasing life insurance on Patricia Kimble, because she had $25,000 somewhere else, and Ted Kimble wanted to increase it to a total of $100,00 so that he and his wife would he equally covered. Mr. Apple made note in his appointment book (copies provided) to run a $100,000 whole Life proposal for a 27 year old female non-smoker for Patricia Kimble.

Mr. Apple says that on 3/1/95 he had an appointment to return to Lyles Buildinging Materials to meet with Ted and Patricia Kimble at 11:50 AM, to intiate and sign an application.

Mr. Apple recalls that when he met with the Kimble's, Patricia KimbleA was very irate over the situation, and it appeared to Mr. Apple that Ted Kimble may have only told his wife about the insurance a day or so prior to the meeting. Mr. Apple says that Patricia Kimble was so adamant about not getting the insurance that Mr. Apple left without starting or signing an application.

5. Reporting Officer/Assignment: Det. John Appel, Major Crimes


AHarvey was a jerk salesman.  We were pricing insurance and he wanted us to "sign."  Patricia didn't want that much insurance and thaught it was a waste of money.  We argued about and went called Garry for his opinion.  He sided with her.  She bought a policy from Bill Jerrell 25,000 4/1/95

*5 months later we had a new Jeep and a line of equity.  I started pricing insurance again.
