I WORKED FOR TED KIMBLE AT LYLES BUILDING MATERIAL FOR ABOUT TWO MONTHS THIS PAST SUMMER. I LEFT BEFORE SEPTEMBER. I LEFT TO GO TO WORK WITH DARRYL BRICKHOUSE WHO RUNS SUPERIOR BACKHOE SERVICE. A FEW THINGS HAPPENED WHILE I WORKED FOR TED WERE ON ONE DAY A BLONDEC HAIRED, LONG BLONDE HAIR, CAME TO LYLES AND PARKED OUTSIDE THE GATE AND TED WALKED OUTSIDE THE GATE AND WAS TALKING TO HER. I SAW HIM STICK HIS HEAD IN HER CAR WINDOW WHILE HE WAS TALKING TO HER. THEY TALKED ABOUT FIVE MINUTES. I COULDN'T SEE HER VERY WELL ONLY THAT SHE HAD LONG BLONDE HAIR AND I DON'T REMEMBER WHAT SHE WAS DRIVING. A FRIEND OF MINE NAMED RODNEY UNK LAST NAME, BUT WAS DATING MY COUSIN LORI SHEPHERD,D 274-7643, WAS ALSO WORKING THERE AT THE TIME AND I REMEMBER HIM SAYING, THATS ONE OF TEDS GIRLS AND IT'S PROBABLY ONE HE GOES TO CHURCH WITH. I THINK HIS LAST NAME WAS WOODBURY. I DON'T KNOW WHERE RODNEY WORKS NOW.
THATS THE ONLY TIME I SAW A LADY COME TO LYLES OTHER THAN TEDS WIFE. I REMEMBER HELPING TED BUILD ON THE NEW CARPORT OR GARAGE THAT HE WAS ADDING ON HIS HOUSE. I WAS AT TEDS HOUSE TWICE. ONCE TED AND RODNEY WORKED ON THE GARAGE AND I MOWED THE GRASS WITH TEDS NEW LAWN MOWER. N0, LET ME CHANGE THAT, IT WAS ONLY ME AND TED THERE THAT DAY. THERE WAS A COUPLE MORE TIMES I WAS SUPPOSED TO MOW TEDS GRASS, BUT ONE TIME IT STARTED RAINING AND SOMETHING ELSE CAME UP THE OTHER TIME, BUT RODNEY TOLD ME THAT HE HAD BEEN THERE AND MOWED THE GRASS SEVERAL TIMES. THAT ONE TIME I MOWED HIS GRASS TED ASKED ME TO DRIVE PATRICIAS CAR TO HER WORKPLACE ON WEBSTER ROAD. I FOLLOWED HIM AND PARKED THE CAR AND WE WENT ON TO TEDS HOUSE IN THE BOXTRUCK. TED ALMOST ALWAYS LEFT THE BOXTRUCK AT LYLES, WEEKENDS INCLUDED. WE WERE WORKING AT LYLES ONE DAY AND TED CURSED
B OUT HIS BROTHER RONNIE. WHEN RONNIE WAS AT LYLES WORKING HE WOULD DO SOMETHING TED DIDN'T LIKE. AND TED WOULD CURSE HIM AND RONNIE WOULD JUST WALK AWAY TED WOULD TELL RONNIE WHAT TO DO AND RONNIE WOULD DO IT. RODNEY TOLD ME ONE TIME THAT RONNIE WAS WORKING FOR NOTHING, THAT HE HAD BOUGHT SOME THINGS AND HAD
HAD THEM CHARGED TO TED AND LYLES BUILDING MATERIAL AND TED WAS MAKING HIM WORK OFF THE DEBT. TED TOLD RODNEY THAT RONNIE WAS A DUMBASS AND WAS ALWAYS DOING STUPID THINGS. I NEVER SAW TED GIVE HIM ANY MONEY. TED WOULD TALK JUNK TO RONNIE BUT ONLY CURSED HIM WHEN HIS DAD WASN'T LISTENING.
TEDS WIFE SEEMED TO BE THE BOSSY TYPE AND I WOULD SEE HER COME TO LYLES AND I KNEW THEY WERE FUSSING AND TED WOULD WALK A FEW STEPS AWAY AND THEN WALK BACK TO HER. I ONLY SAW THEM FUSS LIKE THIS TWO OR THREE

AHe's a drugee, Black male.  They'll never use him.

BRonnie would get gas at Sprinkle Gas on my accont.  I'd let him work a few hours around the shop.  I don't cuss and I've never cussed Ronnie.

CMost likely Kim Murray, old girlfriend.  Good friend of Patricia and I both.  She's married.  I once gave Kim a 38 revolver pistol.

DI strongly recommend seeing what she has to say about Rodney Woodbarry (Lori Sheppard 274-7643). 

 

When police ask about suspects I gave them Kim's name.

TIMES.
I HAVE BEEN IN TEDS HOUSE ONCE WHEN ME AND RODNEY WAS HELPING TED AT HIS HOUSE AND WE ATE HAMBURGERS FOR LUNCH. WE WENT TO THE BATHROOM IN THE HALLWAY AND WASHED OUR HANDS AND ATE IN THE KITCHEN.
THE SATURDAY I QUIT AT LYLES I ASKED MR KIMBLE, TEDS FATHER, FOR MY PAY HE HELD $65.00 OUT, THAT WAS WHAT I HAD BORROWED FROM TED. I WAS GOING TO WORK A FEW DAYS MORE, BUT AFTER THIS I DIDN'T. I GOT UPSET ABOUT IT AND THREW A CANDY JAR AT MR KIMBLE AND LEFT. MR KIMBLE CALLED THE POLICE AND I WALKED OUT AND RONNIE TOLD ME TO GET OFF THE PROPERTY, THAT I WASN'T GOING TO TALK TO HIS DAD THAT WAY. SO I CURSED RONNIE OUT AND WALKED AWAY AND COULD HEAR RONNIE SAYING SOMETHING BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT WAS. I HAVEN'T BEEN BACK TO LYLES SINCE THEN AND HAVE NOT BEEN BACK TO TEDS HOUSE SINCE THEN. I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW TO GET BACK TO TED. HOUSE, IT'S WAY OUT IN. THE COUNTRY.
