RONNIE ASKED ME IF HE HAD TO LISTEN TO ME AND I TOLD HIM THAT HE DID NOT HAVE TO BUT THAT I THOUGHT THAT HE SHOULD BECAUSE I THOUGHT HE OWED IT TO HIMSELF, HIS WIFE, THE KIMBLE FAMILY, THE BLAKELY FAMILY AND TO ME, TO LISTEN TO WHAT I HAD TO SAY.

TOLD RONNIE THAT HE SHOULD DO THE RIGHT THING ABOUT THE DEATH OF PATRICIA KIMBLE AND STAND UP AND BE A MAN OF HONOR ABOUT THE INCIDENT AND TELL THE TRUTH. I TOLD HIM SEVERAL TIMES THAT IF HE WERE TO TALK TO ME THAT HE SHOULD TELL THE TRUTH. I MADE A PLEA WITH RONNIE AND TOLD HIM OF BIBLE SCRIPTURE THAT SAID THAT ONE SHOULD CONFESS THEIR SINS IN PUBLIC. I ALSO MADE IT CLEAR THAT I DID NOT WANT TO GET INTO BIBLEA
SCRIPTURE OR VERSES WITH HIM, BUT ONLY WANTED HIM TO KNOW THAT EVERYONE HAD TO COME TO TERMS WITH THEMSELVES AT ONE POINT IN THEIR LIFE EVEN IF IT WAS ON THEIR DEATH BED AND TAKING THEIR LAST BREATH. RONNIE INTERRUPTED ME AT ONE POINT AND ASKED "WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO TELL YOU"., AND AGAIN I TOLD HIM IF HE WANTED TO TELL ME ANYTHING TO. TELL ME THE TRUTH ABOUT PATRICIAS DEATH. RONNIE ALSO STATED THAT HE HAD SPOKEN TO DET. SGT. DeBERRY, NCIS AGENT MUNROE AND ALSO TO ME AND THAT HE HAD NOTHING TO ADD TO WHAT HE HAD ALREADY SAID. I ALSO TOLD RONNIE THAT IF I DID FIND OUT LATER THAT ANYONE ASSISTED HIM IN SURPRESSING INFORMATION OR DETAILS ABOUT THE MURDER OF PATRICIA THAT I WOULD CHARGE THEM IF I COULD.
 

WE WERE ALSO INTERRUPTED AT ONE POINT WHEN RONNIE WAS ALLOWED TO SIGN FOR HIS LAST PAYCHECK FROM THE MARINE CORPS.
 

I SHOWED RONNIE THE WARRANT FOR MURDER ON HIM AND EXPLAINED THE CHARGES TO HIM AND ADVISED HIM THAT HE WOULD RECEIVE THE PINK COPY AT THE TIME HE WAS SERVED.
 

AT NO TIME DID RONNIE SAY THAT HE DID NOT KILL PATRICIA BUT DID SAY AT ONE POINT THAT HE DIDN'T DO IT, BUT DID NOT SAY WHAT HE DID NOT DO. AT NO POINT DID RONNIE ASK FOR AN ATTORNEY, AND AT NO TIME DID I ASK RONNIE ANY QUESTIONS AT ALL ABOUT THE MURDER OF PATRICIA KIMBLE.
 

RONNIE ASKED TO USE THE TELEPHONE AND I TOLD HIM THAT HE COULD NOT USE THE PHONE AT THAT TIME BUT THAT HE COULD CALL ANYONE HE WISHED TO WHEN WE GOT TO GUILFORD COUNTY. I ASKED RONNIE IF HE PREFERRED TO GO TO A MAGISTRATE IN ONSLOW COUNTY OR GUILFORD COUNTY. RONNIE SAID THAT HE PREFERRED TO GO TO GUILFORD COUNTY TO BE SERVED AND GO BEFORE A MAJISTRATE.

ARonnie must have quoted scripture back at him.  Church claims to know the Lord, but Satan knows God also.  (HA)

BNote how many hours the interogated him, but never ask any questions.
