5. Offense: Homicide; On today's date and time I interviewed Steven
RichardsonA at his place of
employment after receiving a telephone call from him.
Mr. Richardson stated that he was Ted Kimble's sunday school teacher
at South Elm St. Baptist Church. Steve said that after joining the
church that Patricia was the only person that sent him a note
welcoming him ad he thought very highly of her. Steven said the
reason he called was that he along with everyone else had doubts
about Ted because of his disposition and things he has done since
Patricia's murder. Steven said that Ted told him at a dinner the
class was on that he had bought a new motorcycleC
and this was only a week after her death.
On Tuesday night while at work 1-16-96 Steven noticed that Ted and
Rhonda [unreadable]field had entered his business from seeing them
on the security monitor and it bothered him so bad that he was
already seeing other women that he didn't even go out front. Steven
watched as Ted and Rhonda ordered and as they hugged and kissed at
the counter. Steven said that his newly hired cashier came back to
him to ask a question about a problem she had with the cash register
and after she returned to the front Ted was aware that he was in the
back. Ted then turned to the security camera and stuck out his
tounge. Steven said he felt like we needed to see the tape and be
aware of Ted's actions in case we didn't know. The security tape was
given to Sgt. DeBerry by Steven.
A-Steve Richardson-It might of bothered him
then, but it didn't bother him to hit me up for a $5000.00
loan. I was in his store on High Point Rd and he was in the
process of moving to a new location on Wendover. I told him I wished
I could help him but my hands were tied at the time. He only
needed the money for a few weeks. I later said something to Patrick
Pardee about it. Patrick offered to loan Steve the money. Steve said
he had taken care of it.
I've known Steve for some time. He's very
two-faced. Example his wife Lisa. Steve is divorced from his
first wife. Before I married Patricia I was in his shop and he was
talking about how dum and employee was he hired. Next he's
telling me how good looking she is in a bikini. A few weeks
later their dating and later married. I knew her and she
didn't get smarter. He and Lisa are still married.
B-This was just over 3 months after Patricia's
C-Steve talked about buying himself a
motorcycle. At the time he wanted one but couldn't afford it.
