2. Victim's Name: PATRICIA GAIL KIMBLE
3. Day/Date/Time of Report: Thu Jun 6 12:16:37 EDT 1996
 

4. Narrative: I SPOKE WITH RUBEN BLAKELY AGAIN TODAY IN REFERENCE TO A NOTE I MADE ABOUT HIM TELLING ME ABOUT AN INCIDENT ON 10OCT95 THAT I DID NOT ENTER IN THE CASE UNTIL NOW.
THE INCIDENT WAS ON 10OCT95 AT APPROXIMATELY 1930 HRS. AFTER EVERYONE IN BOTH FAMLIES HAD LEFT THE CRIME SCENE AND THEY HAD WENT TO RUEBENS HOME. TED AND RONNIE WERE TOGETHER AND HAD BEEN TALKING FOR A SHORT WHILE AND AT APPROXIMATELY 1930 HRS. TED CAME TO HIM AND WANTED TO BORROW A FLASHLIGHT AND RUBEN ASKED HIM WHAT HE WANTED A FLASHLIGHT FOR. TED TOLD HIM THAT HE AND RONNIE WANTED TO GO TO LYLES BUILDING MATERIAL AND LOOK FOR SOME EMPLOYEE RECORDS THAT THEY MIGHT BE SUSPECTS. RUEBEN GOT HIM A FLASHLIGHT AND TED AND RONNIE LEFT. IN REFERENCE TO RONNIE, I AM SPEAKING OF RONNIE HIS BROTHER, NOT RONNIE HIS FATHER.


RUEBEN SAID THAT THEY RETURNED ABOUT TWO HOURS LATER BUT NEVER GAVE HIM HIS FLASHLIGHT BACK AND IN FACT HAS NOT GOTTEN IT BACK AS OF YET. RUEBEN DIDN'T ASK TED OR RONNIE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT THEY GOT AT LYLES THAT NIGHT.


THE NEXT DAY 11OCT96 RUBEN TED AND OTHERS WERE TOGETHER AND TALKING AND AGAIN TED MADE THE COMMENT THAT HE HAD TO GO TO LYLES BUILDING MATERIALS AND GET INFORMATION ABOUT EMPLOYEES FOR SUSPECT REASONS. RUEBEN TOLD TED THAT HE THOUGHT THAT THAT WAS WHAT HE DID THE NIGHT BEFORE WHEN HE BORROWED HIS FLASHLIGHT AND TED REPLIED THAT NO, I DIDN'T GO TO LYLES LAST NIGHT,
A I DIDN'T HAVE TIME. RUEBEN DIDN'T INQUIRE AS TO WHY THEY DIDN'T GO TO LYLESB THE NIGHT BEFORE OR WHERE THEY DID GO FOR THE TWOC HOURS THEY WERE GONE AND NEEDED A FLASHLIGHT.

ARonnie and I went to Lyles.  By the time we got there it was dark.  Ruben lives at the Randoff Co line.  We got to Lyles and had to dig in a dark storage building out on the lot. The flashlight he gave me was dead.  I couldn't fined anything.  We then went to Ronnie's house to pick up some food for the family gathering.  We spent over an hour in driving time alone.

BI didn't say no.  JD Church waited 8 months to follow up on this.

CTo Lyles is approx 25 min. from Rubens.  From Lyle's to Ronnie's house is another 25 minuts and back to Rubens 25 min more.
