Re: Ronnie Lee
Dear Mr. Panosh:
On April 16 Robert
O'Hale, appointed counsel for the referenced defendant at the time,
filed a request for voluntary discovery, specifically requesting
written, recorded and oral statements of the defendant and his
codefendant, Ted Kimble.
On April 25 I
wrote you and requested voluntary discovery prior to the scheduled
Rule 24 conference, particularly some documentation of the factual
basis for the State's assertion of an aggravating factor.
On October 30,
1995 Major Gregory Monroe, a Navy investigator, interviewed Ronnie
Lee Kimble at the request of Detective Jim Church of the Guilford
County Sheriff's Department. The scope of the interview covered the
circumstances of the death of Patricia Kimble and the activities of
Ronnie Lee Kimble on October 9, 1995.
transcript of Major Monroe's interview of Ronnie Lee Kimble was
turned over to Detective Church who read selected portions of it to
Ronnie Lee Kimble during a long interview by Detective Church and
S.B.I. Agent Pendergrass sometime in the summer of 1996.
Please provide me with all notes, audio tapes, transcripts and investigative reports of these two interviews of Ronnie Lee Kimble as soon as possible.
Mr. R. E.

Kimble is a good candidate for pretrial release. We need some
appropriate voluntary discovery so that we can adequately prepare
for the bond hearing which is scheduled for the week of May 26.
for your consideration in this matter. Very truly yours,
