Black stated although she did not personally know victim Kimble, she had children about the age of Patricia Kimble. Black stated when victim Kimble first began banking at the Spring Valley Branch Black knew Kimble as Patricia Gail Blakley.

further regarding victim Kinble but did say victim Kinble was a nice girl who Black believes got a "raw deal."
