4. Narrative: THE FOLLOWING IS AN INTERVIEW WITH E-5 2ND CLASS PETTY OFFICER DEBORAH ANN FREDDIE, STATIONED AT CAMP LEJEUNE MCB ASSIGNED TO THE BASE CHAPLINS OFFICE, TARAWA TERRACE I, RELIGIOUS PROGRAM SPECIALIST. THIS INTERVIEW WAS CONDUCTED AT THE NAVAL CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIVE OFFICE LOCATED AT CAMP LEJEUNE MCB. PRESENT DURING THE INTERVIEW WAS DET. J.D. CHURCH, SBI SA HAROLD PENDERGRASS AND SA NCIS SAMUAL WORTH.
 

2ND CLASS PETTY OFFICER FREDDIE WAS TRANSPORTED TO THE NAVAL CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIVE SERVICE OFFICE AT CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C., BY AGENTS GREGORY MUNROE AND SAMUEL WORTH. FREDDIE WAS TRANSPORTED FOR THE PURPOSE OF AN INTERVIEW WITH AGENT PENDERGRASS, AGENT WORTH AND MYSELF ABOUT ANY INFORMATION SHE MIGHT HAVE ABOUT THE DEATH OF PATRICIA KIMBLE AND ANY INFORMATION ABOUT RONNIE KIMBLE RELATED TO PATRICIAS DEATH. FREDDIE SAID SHE HAS BEEN ASSIGNED TO THE BASE CHAPLINS OFFICE AT CAMP LEJEUNE MCB SINCE FEBRUARY OF 1994. SHE HAS KNOWN KIMBLE SINCE HE HAS BEEN ASSIGNED TO THE BASE CHAPLINS OFFICE IN 1995.
 

FREDDIE WAS UP FRONT AND STATED THAT SHE DID NOT LIKE KIMBLE AND KIMBLE DID NOT LIKE HER. THE REASON SHE GAVE FOR THIS WAS THAT KIMBLE WOULD GO OVER HER HEAD AND DO THINGS WITHOUT HER PERMISSION, HE OVERSTEPED HIS AUTHORITY.
 

ON ONE OCCASION FREDDIE OVERHERD KIMBLE TELLING OTHER PERSONNEL ABOUT PATRICIAS MURDER AND INFORMED HIM NOT TO TALK ABOUT THE MURDER ANY MORE BECAUSE IT WAS UNDER INVESTIGATION.
 

FREDDIE WAS AT THAT TIME KIMBLES BOSS.
 

TWO OF THE PEOPLE IN THE CONVERSATION THAT FREDDIE REMEMBERED WERE CPL. WADSWORTH AND CPL. SUNNQUIS, BOTH ARE OUT OF THE MARINE CORPS NOW. SUNNQUIS LIVES IN ILLINOIS.
 

FREDDIE THINKS KIMBLE TOLD PEOPLE ABOUT PATRICIA SO THEY WOULD FEEL SORRY FOR HIM.
 

SHE ALSO DESCRIBED KIMBLE AS A BUTT-KISSER TO ANYONE RANKED ABOVE HIM WHO HE THINKS CAN HELP HIM. SHE SAID KIMBLE WAS A BIBLE THUMPER. SHE DESCRIBED A BIBLE THUMPER AS ONE WHO QUOTES BIBLE VERSES AND SAYS ORA TELLS PEOPLE WHAT HE THINKS THE BIBLE TELLS US WE SHOULD DO. FREDDIE DOES NOT THINK KIMBLE WILL COME TO HER AND TELL HER ANYTHING BECAUSE OF THEIR RELATIONSHIP.
 

FREDDIE SAID THAT A FORMER MARINE, CHARLES WEST,B A FORMER ROOMATE OF KIMBLES, DID NOT LIKE KIMBLE AT ALL. SHE STATED THAT WEST TOLD HER THAT RONNIE WOULDN'T TAKE A BATH. A SECOND ROOMATE ANTHONY GRILLO MADE THE SAME STATEMENT TO FREDDIE. GRILLO IS ALSO OUT OF THE MARINE CORPS AND LIVES IN CHICAGO.
 

FREDDIE SAID THAT IF SHE DID LEARN ANYTHING THAT WOULD HELP IN THE CASE

(96)

A-What's a guy doing reading his bible then going out killing someone?

B-If Charles West shows up on the stand anywhere make a note he didn't like Ronnie either.  Ronnie doesn't drink and party like the rest of them so a lot of them wouldn't accept him.


 

THAT SHE WOULD CONTACT AGENT WORTH.
