THEODORE MEAD KIMBLE,

RONNIE LEE KIMBLE,

Defendants

 

DISCOVERY MEMORDANDUM

(Number 8)

 

NOW COMES the State of North Carolina and acknowledges receipt of Defendants' request for additional discovery. The State of North Carolina has previously extensive discovery.
 

On or about Thursday, July 30, 1998, Randy Simpson contacted Detective Jay Whitt of the Greensboro Police Department by mail. Mr. Simpson is currently incarcerated in Atlanta Geogia. Mr. Simpson stated that he had information in regard to a murder case that occurred in Guilford County.
 

Thereafter, Detective Whitt traveled to Atlanta Geogia and interviewed Randy Simpson. The following is a summary of the interview with Mr. Simpson.
 

I was in the same cell block as Ronnie Kimble from April to June 10, 1998. We were on D-3 together. At that time I had conversations with Ronnie Kimble. Ronnie talked about being in the Marines, about his family and his case. He mentioned that his brother was a co-defendant, and that his brother is in the High Point jail. He stated that he was not worried about the death penalty because he and his brother have been discussing the case and how they are going to testify. Ronnie said his brother has said he will not testify against Ronnie. He said that that they talk through members of the family, through visitation and on the telephone. He stated that they do not communicate through the mail because Ronnie believes that the Guilford County Sheriffs Department opens and reads the mail. Simpson was in the cellblock with Ronnie and Robert Knight. Ronnie and Knight have both sent things to their families and the letters have been opened before they arrived. Robert finally went to general population so Ronnie and I were alone together. He gave me a calendar with his name on it and told me to keep in touch with him. Ronnie said that he wouldn't be in jail if it were not for his brother. He told me it was all about Insurance money. He said that Arson was involved and that the girl killed was his brother's wife. Ronnie said that he hated her.
 

This information was brought to the attention of the District Attorney's Office on Tuesday, August 04, 1998, when Detective Whitt returned from Atlanta.
