RONNIE LEFT DRIVING KIMS 1992 CHEVROLET CAMERO GOING TO TEDS HOUSE. KIM LEFT DRIVING THIER WHITE DODGE DAYTONA GOING TO HER WORKPLACE AT PHYSICAL THERPY AND REHAB ON CHURCH STREET IN GREENSBORO.
 

RONNIE CALLED KIM AT HER WORKPLACE AT 1200 NOON AND ASKED HER IF SHEA WANTED HIM TO COME EAT LUNCH WITH HER AND SHE ASKED IF HE HAD GOTTEN THE UNDERPINNING AND HE SAID YES AND SHE TOLD HIM TO GO ON HOME AND START PUTTING THE UNDERPINNING ON THE MOBILE HOME.

KIM SAID THAT RONNIE WAS ALONE THAT DAY THAT SHE DIDN'T THINK ANYONE WAS WITH HIM THAT NONE OF HIS FRIENDS CAME HOME WITH HIM THAT WEEKEND FROM
LEJUEINE. I ASKED HER WHO DID COME HOME WITH HIM OR WHAT THE FRIENDS NAME WAS THAT DID COME HOME WITH HIM ON WEEKENDS AND SHE SAID THAT IT WAS NEIL SILVERTHORN, A MARINE FRIEND.B
 

SHE SAID THAT RONNIE TOOK THE BOX TRUCK TO TEDS HOUSE AND PICKED UP THE CAMERO AND DROVE BACK TO THEIR MOBILE HOME. RONNIE HAD ALREADY BEEN TOC THE MOBILE HOME AND UNLOADED THE UNDERPINNING. RONNIE WORKED ON THE UNDERPINNING FOR A WHILE AND NEEDED A TOOL THAT HE DIDN'T HAVE AND GOT INTO THE CAMERO AND DROVE TO LYLES BUILDING MATERIALS TO BORROW IT FROM TED. WHEN HE GOT THERE TED WAS BUSY SO HE WAITED ON A CUSTOMER AND WAS THERE FOR A WHILE AND WHEN TED GOT FREE HE GOT THE TOOL AND DROVE BACK TO THEIR TRAILER ON MONNETT ROAD.

AI believe Ronnie called her from my office.

BNo one came home with Ronnie that weekend.  The detectives spoke to Neil.  I believe Neil took a lie detector test.

CThe second time he called Kim because he had the truck at my office loaded down.  He then left my office went home unloaded.  Around 1 pm Ronnie took the truck back to my house, and returned to his home in his car.

DRonnie was at my office before 4 pm.

EKim says she got home at 5:40.  James Stump claims to have left at 5:30.  I'm thinking someone said James was there when Kim got home.

AFTERWARDS THEY RECEIVED A PHONE CALL AND THE PERSON CALLING HUNG UP. SHORTLY THE PHONE RANG AGAIN AND KIM ANSWERED IT AND A FEMALE WANTED RON AND EDNAS PHONE NUMBER, THIS IS RONNIES MOM AND DAD. RONNIE COMMENTED TO KIM THAT SOMETHING DIDN'T SEEM RIGHT AND WONDERED IF SOMETHING WAS WRONG IN THE CHURCH OR ONE OF THE PEOPLE IN THE CHURCH. THE CALLER IDENTIFIED HERSELF AS BEING KRISTY THE NEXT TIME SHE CALLED AND TOLD THEM THAT TEDS HOUSE WAS ON FIRE. KRISTY SAID THAT TED WAS THERE BUT THAT THEY DIDN'T KNOW WHERE PATRICIA WAS. KIMBERLY CALLED HER MOTHER JUDY STUMP AND ASKED HER TO TRY TO CONTACT EDNA OR A CHURCH DECON AND LET THEM KNOW THE HOUSE WAS ON FIRE. THEY THEN DROVE TO TEDS HOUSE AND WAS STOPPED BY FIREMEN AND THEY TOLD THE FIREMEN THAT THEY WERE FAMILY. TED CAME TO THEM AND WAS CRYING AND HUGGED THEM AND SAID, I CAN'T UNDERSTAND WHATS GOING ON OR WHO DID THIS AND SAID HE HOPED PATRICIA WOULD PULL UP IN A CAR WITH A FRIEND. THEY LEFT SHORTLY AFTERWARDS. AND DROVE TO HER MOTHERS HOUSE. AND TOLD THEM WHAT THEY KNEW ABOUT THE FIRE AND LATER THE STUMPS AND KIM AND RONNIE DROVE TO SOUTH EAST BAPTIST CHURCH WHERE EVERYONE HAD GATHERED. THE PASTOR HAD TOLD THEM AT THE FIRE SCENE THAT THEY WERE MEETING AT THE CHURCH LATER ON THAT NIGHT.
 

I ASKED KIMBERLY IF ANYONE HAD TOLD HER NOT TO TALK TO ME OR ANY LAWENFOREMENT OFFICER AND SHE SAID THAT RON AND EDNA KIMBLE TOLD HERA THAT IT PROBABLY WOULD BEST IF SHE DIDN'T TALK TO LAWENFORCEMENT.


SHE SAID THAT RONNIE VERY EMOTIONAL PERSON AND THAT SHE HAS SEEN HIM CRY ON MANY OCCASIONS SHE WOULD KIDD HIM AND TELL HIM THAT SHE MADE HIM CRY. SHE SAID THAT SHE COULD TELL WHEN RONNIE WAS TELLING A LIE THAT HE COULDN'T HIDE IT FROM HER, THAT IT SHOWED.
 

KIMBERLY ALSO SAID THAT SHE DIDN'T KNOW WHO KILLED PATRICIA BUT WHO EVER DID IT SHOULD GET THE DEATH PENALTY.
 

THIS WAS THE END OF THE INTERVIEW AND WHAT KIMBERLY KIMBLE TOLD ME.B

 

5.  Reporting Officer/Assignment:  DET. J. D. CHURCH

AMom and Dad knew the police were trying to frame me and worried the same about Ronnie.  I already had a lawyer myself.  Rumors were the detectives were pointing the finger at us.

BJD Church altered Judy and James Stump's statements and most likely did this one too.
