at Precision Fabrics on Meadowview Street, Greensboro, NC so he

marry Janet Blakley. Patricia had a good business head on her. Ted
didn't want to be married to Patricia because he was still in love
Ted said his brother Ronnie had taken care of the murder because
he (Ted) didn't want to be married anymore "I heard a rumor right
before Patricia was killed that they were trying to get a large
policy on each other. Patricia didn't really want it but I didn't
think too much about it." After Patricia was killed, there was a big
stink about the insurance because Ted said the policy was not in
effect because of Patricia Ted said he didn't think he would get
the money because Patricia's physical had not been completed before
