7.Narrative:

MR. GARY LYLES WAS INTERVIEWED ON 10/12/95 AT THE SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT ON SYCAMORE STREET AT 5:50 P.M. BY LT. JAMES G. BRYANT. MR LYLES SAID ONE TIME HE WAS THE OWNER OF LYLES BUILDING MATERIAL ON LEE STREET GREENSBORO. HE SAID IN MARCH 0F 1994 HE SOLD HIS BUSINESS TO TED AND PAT KIMBLE. HE HAS KNOWN TED KIMBLE SINCE HE WAS A YOUNG BOY. MR
KIMBLE, TED'S FATHER, WAS A FAMILY FRIEND AS WELL AS THE PASTOR OF HIS CHURCH. ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO MR. LYLES HIRED TED TO WORK AT THE BUILDING MATERIAL BUSINESS DURING THE TIME HE WAS WORKING THERE TED WAS A GOOD EMPLOYEE ONE THAT COULD BE TRUSTED. TED HAD TALKED FOR SEVERAL YEARS ABOUT BUYING THE BUSINESS WHEN MR. LYLES RETIRED. TED HAD MANY GIRLFRIENDS, HE WAS A REAL LADY'S MAN. I THINK HE WAS ENGAGED ABOUT 4 TIMES BEFORE HE MET PAT BLAKLEY. I TOLD TED I WOULND'T SELL HIM THE BUSINESS UNTIL HE SETTLED DOWN AND COULD LEARN TO HANDLE MONEY. I ALSO TOLD HIM HE SHOULD MARRY SOMEONE THAT COULD HELP HIM BECAUSE SOME OF THE GIRLS HE DATED WERE LIKE STREETWALKERS. TED STARTED DATING PAT BLAKLEY AND I REALLY LIKED HER. SHE WAS THE ONE I HOPED TED WOULD MARRY. I TOLD TED I WOULD SELL HIM THE BUSINESS IF HE MARRIED PAT, I KNEW SHEA COULD HELP HIM SETTLE DOWN. IN MARCH OF 1994 I SOLD TED THE BUSINESS FOR $50,000.00 AND THERE WAS JUST ABOUT THAT MUCH STOCK ON HAND AT THAT TIME. HE BORROWED $25,000.00 FROM HIS FATHER AND I LET HIM MAKE ME PAYMENTS ON THE OTHER $25,000.00. ON THE DAY WE CLOSED THE DEAL THERE WAS JUST A LITTLE OVER $11,500.00 IN THE BUSINESS ACCOUNT AND I GAVE HALF OF THAT TO TED TO GET HIM STARTED.

ABOUT THREE WEEKS AGO I WALKED INTO MY HOUSE AND MY WIFE ROSE WAS TALKING TO PAT. MY WIFE SAID PAT WAS UPSET AND CRYING AND WANTED TO TALK WITH ME. PAT TOLD ME TED HAD TAKEN OUT A BIG INSURANCE POLICY ON

SHE WANTED ME TO TALK WITH TED ABOUT ALL OF THE ABOVE ITEMS. WE MADE PLANS TO GO TO A MARRIAGE RETREAT AT RIDGECREST ON FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13, 1995 AND I WOULD TALK WITH HIM AT THAT TIME.
