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
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
THE NIGHT BEFORE OR WHERE THEY DID GO FOR THE TWOC
HOURS THEY WERE GONE AND NEEDED A FLASHLIGHT.
5. Reporting Officer/Assignment: DET. J.D. CHURCH
Ted given pages 1-59
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.
