1. Incident Number: 951009027
2. Victim's Name: PATRICIA GALE KIMBLE
3. Day/Date/Time of Report: Thu Nov 2 08:01:30 EST 1995
4. Narrative: ON NOVEMBER 1, 1995 I SPOKE WITH TED KIMBLE BY PHONE
AT HIS WORKPLACE AND ASKED HIM ABOUT THE TWO GUN PERMITS HE BOUGHT
ON 02-01-95. HE STATED THAT HE ALWAYS BOUGHT A GUN PERMIT WHEN THE
GUN SHOW WAS IN TOWN AND THAT HE THOUGHT HE HAD BOUGHT A .38 CAL AND
A .32 CAL. AND HIS PARENTS HAS THEM NOW. HE ALSO TOLD ME THAT HE HAD
PREVIOUSLY BOUGHT A .38 CAL PISTOL AT SPORTS UNLIMITED AND GAVE IT
TO A FORMER GIRL FRIEND KIM PALMER. KIM GOES TO SOUTH ELM BAPTIST
CHURCH ALSO. ((((*** I SPOKE WITH KIM PALMER AT 852-3572 HOME,
230-8640 PAGER, AND SHE SAID THAT SHE DID DATE TED FOR ABOUT FOUR
MONTHS BACK IN 1992 IN THE WINTER MONTHS. SHE SAID THAT HE WAS BACK
AND FORTH WITH PATRICIA AND HER COUSIN AND THAT SHE HAD SPOKEN TO
PATRICIA AND HAD TOLD HER THAT SHE DIDN'T WANT TO GET INTO THE
TRIANGLE AND COULD SEE THAT HE LIKED PATRICIA AND HER COUSIN MORE
THAN HER, SO SHE JUST DRIFTED OUT OF THE PICTURE. ***))))... TED
BECAME SOMEWHAT UPSET WITH ME ASKING ME ABOUTA
THE GUNS AND WANTED TO KNOW WHAT IT HAD TO DO WITH HIS WIFES DEATH.
I EXPLAINED THAT I NEEDED TO KNOW EVERYONE HE HAD COME IN CONTACT
WITH THAT MIGHT HAVE ANYTHING AGAINST PATRICIA FOR ANY REASON.
TED CALLED ME BACK APPROXIMATELY THIRTY MINUTES LATER AND HIS FIRST
QUESTION WAS "IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT TO ASK ME". I WAS NOT
EXPECTING THE CALL OR A QUESTION LIKE THIS SO I ASKED HIM WHAT HE
WAS TALKING ABOUT. HE SAID THAT HE HAD TALKED TO HIS ATTORNEY MR
BOUDEN AND HIS ATTORNEY TOLD HIM TO NOT TALK TO ME UNLESS HE WAS
PRESENT, THAT IN LEGAL TERMS I MIGHT BE TRYING TO GET ENOUGH
EVIDENCE AGAINST HIM TO CHARGE HIM WITH HIS WIFES DEATH. TED USED
THE WORD ENTRAPPED AND I TOLD HIM TO TELL HIS ATTORNEY THAT THERE
WAS NO WAY I WAS TRYING TO TRAP ANYONE THAT I WAS AFTER THE FACTS
THAT I INTENDED TO GET THEM TO FIND OUT WHO KILLED HIS WIFE.B
I TOLD TED THAT IF HE DIDN'T KILL HIS WIFE THAT HE DIDN'T HAVE
ANYTHING TO WORRY ABOUT AND I ASKED HIM "DID YOU KILL YOUR WIFE" AND
HE SAID, "NO", AND I TOLD HIM THAT IF HE HAD NOT DONE ANYTHING THAT
HE DIDN'T HAVE ANYTHING TO WORRY ABOUT AND I DIDN'T THINK HE NEEDED
AN ATTORNEY BECAUSE HE HAD NOTHING TO HIDE. I ALSO TOLD HIM THAT IT
WAS MY EXPERIENCE THAT IF ANYONE IN AN INVESTIGATION WAS GUILTY OF
ANYTHING THAT THEY WOULD GO TO AN ATTORNEY AND THAT I WANTED TO FIND
OUT WHO KILLED HIS WIFE AND NEEDED HIS HELP TO DO SO AND AGAIN I
TOLD HIM THAT IF HE HAD NOT DONE ANYTHING THAT HE DIDN'T NEED AN
ATTORNEY PRESENT WHEN I TALKED TO HIM.
5. Reporting Officer/Assignment: DET J.D. CHURCH
was drilling the crap out of me as if I were lying to him or holding
info from him.
BYou know that's a lie.
Church was going around telling lies about me. Everytime we
spoke he was calling me a lier or making accusations like I can't
verify this or that.
