24, 1997, I had a conversation with retired Greensboro Police
Detective, L. H. Scott. During this conversation, I learned from Mr.
Scott that the anonymous person, who called him at his residence and
gave him information about Ted Kimble, was Gary Lyles. Mr. Lyles is
the former owner of Lyles Building Supply on East Lee Street.
also told me he has known Ted Kimble since Ted was a teenager. Mr.
Scott told me that at sometime after the death of Patricia Kimble,
he had occasion to talk to Ted Kimble. He said Ted Kimble told him
that, "They are looking at me in Patricia's murder." Mr. Scott said
he told Ted, "If I had the case, I'd be looking at you, too." He
said that he then told Ted Kimble, "If you didn't do it, then go up
and talk to the police and tell them that you didn't do it." He said
that Ted Kimble then said, "You know me, I wouldn't do anything like
Mr. Scott, he knew nothing else about the case. Although, he did
tell me he had heard that someone involved in the death had "talked"
to someone, who then gave the information to the police.
So as not to jeopardize this case, I will await further instructions from you before taking any further investigative action.
