MEMO TO FILE
On this date
I talked to Elizabeth Hedgecock, 7016 Hemphill Road, Julian, North
Carolina (336) 685-4425. Elizabeth and Jack Hedgecock were married
approximately 40 years ago. They have a 40 year old son and five
girls, one of whom, Faith, is now deceased. Faith and Joy were
twins, born September 14, 1974. They were pretty, athletic young
girls raised in a strict Christian home and attended Vandalia
School, which had a lot of activities. While Joy was at Vandalia
School, she began dating Ronnie Kimble. Ronnie was around the
Hedgecock house a great deal and Elizabeth says he was very
affectionate toward her and Jack, calling them Mom and Pop. Gary
Lyles lived next door. Elizabeth recalls Ronnie painting Lyles'
house and hanging around Joy. It is true, as Joy says in the police
report, that Ronnie was very possessive of Joy. They were so close
that Elizabeth suspects they were probably having sex.
point when Joy was approximately 16 or 17 Joy told her mom that she
had sex one time with Ted Kimble when she was 14. This occurred at a
Christian youth camp near Asheville. Elizabeth feels that Joy told
her this in order to admit she was having sex but to divert
Elizabeth's attention that Joy probably was having sex with Ronnie
at that time.
lives in Burlington and is a nurse. It is possible that Joy told
Jancie about the abortion around the time it occurred. Elizabeth
admits that her strong opposition to the abortion would have made it
almost impossible for her daughter to discuss the problem of being
pregnant with her. Elizabeth regrets this because she says maybe if
she had been more flexible toward Joy, she would have let the
Hedgecock's raise the child.
says Ronnie and Joy were so close they were "engaged.' Joy wore a
ring out but not at home. Ronnie thought he "owned" Joy.
a long knife on his side, 10 to 14 inches, in a sheath. Elizabeth
thought this looked ridiculous.
Faith and Joy both worked at the Mayflower Seafood Restaurant on Randleman Road and Creekridge. The manager is called "Jimmy the Greek." On several occasions he told Elizabeth that he was afraid of Ronnie because of his behavior after Joy and Ronnie broke up.
working at the Mayflower, Faith and Joy took up with two brothers,
Henry Dyer and his brother, who also worked at the Mayflower. Even
while Ronnie and Joy were going together, the two twins and two
brothers were very close friends.
finally broke up with Ronnie and started going with Henry Dyer,
Ronnie acted very crazy, stalking and following Joy and creating a
certain amount of fear and apprehension in the mind of "Jimmy the
Greek" and Joy.
Henry Dyer were divorced in October, 1995. (Have Phyllis obtain
copies of the complaint and judgment in that divorce). They have one
child, Arizona, age four.
divorced Henry Dyer she took up with Bobby Jeter, a black male from
the Bronx, New York and lived for a period of time in Greenville,
North Carolina. At the present time she is living in Browns Summit
with Bobby Joe Lowe, a black male. (Have Phyllis attempt to obtain a
copy of the criminal records on Jeter and Lowe).
sister, Bonnie Price, lives in Staley, (336)622-2869. Bonnie has
seven children and stays home taking care of them. Joy confides in
Bonnie. Joy's other sister, Donna Hedgecock, who recently moved out
of the home may also have information about Joy. Joy does not want
to communicate with her mom and dad and she may not want to testify
in this case because of her association with black drug dealers.
Graham was prosecuted for the responsibility of the automobile
accident resulting in the death of Faith. The date of the accident
is uncertain (have Phyllis get a computer print out on Mark Anthony
It would definitely be in our interest to put Elizabeth and Jack Hedgecock on our witness list in anticipation of subpoenaing them.
