2. Victim's Name: PATRICIA GAIL KIMBLE
3. Day/Date/Time of Report: Thu Nov 2 08:51:08 EST 1995
4. Narrative: TED KIMBLE CALLED THIS WRITER BY PAGER AT
APPROXIMATELY 2215 HRS. ON 11-01-95 AND I RETURNED HIS CALL AT
TED WANTED ME TO KNOW THAT HE DID GO TO SPRINKLES GAS AND PAY FOR
THE GAS THAT HIS BROTHER HAD GOT IN HIS BOX TRUCK ON OCTOBER 9TH
WHEN HE HAD BORROWED IT TO GET UNDERPINNING FOR HIS, RONNIES, MOBILE
HOME. TED SAID HE DIDN'T WANT ME TO THINK HE WAS LYING AND KEEPING
ANYTHING FROM ME THAT HE HAD JUST FORGOT ABOUT RONNIE COMMING BY AND
TELLING HIM ABOUT GETTING THE GAS AND CHARGING IT TO HIS COMPANY.A
TED SAID THAT HE HAD TALKED TO HIS BROTHER RONNIE BY PHONE AT CAMP
LEJEUNE THAT MORNING. THIS IS TWO DAYS AFTER NCI INVESTIGATOR G.
GREGORY MUNROE INTERVIEWED RONNIE KIMBLE AT CAMP LEJEUNE, MCB.
TED TOLD ME TWICE THAT THERE WAS NO WAY HIS BROTHER COULD HAVE
KILLED HIS WIFE. I ASKED TED AGAIN AS I HAD ASKED BEFORE WHY HE DID
INFORM ME THAT HIS BROTHER WAS HERE IN GUILFORD COUNTY ON 09OCT95
AND IN FACT AT HIS AND PATRICIAS HOME THAT DAY. I ALSO TOLD TED THAT
AT THIS POINT IN THE INVESTIGATION THAT RONNIE WAS THE LAST KNOWN
PERSON AT HIS AND HIS WIFES RESIDENCE BEFORE SHE WAS MURDERED.
AGAIN I TOLD TED THAT IF HE DIDN'T HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH KILLING
THAT HE HAD NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT.
TED SAID HE WANTED TO HELP ME BUT HE WAS AFRAID HE WOULD DO OR SAY
THE WRONG THING AND I WOULD THINK HE WAS LYING AND TRYING TO KEEP
SOMETHING FROM ME. I TOLD TED THAT ALL I WANTED WAS THE TRUTH FROM
HIM AND FORD
HIM NOT TO KEEP ANYTHING FROM ME LIKE HIS BROTHER BEING IN GUILFORD
COUNTY THE DAY PATRICIA WAS MURDERED. TED ALSO SAID THAT HE KNEW HIS
BROTHER HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH PATRICIAS MURDER AND THATS WHY HE DID
NOT BOTHER TO TELL ME RONNIE WAS IN GUILFORD COUNTY THAT DAY. I
REASURED TED AGAIN THAT HE COULD CALL ME ANYTIME AND THAT I WAS
GOING TO FIND OUT WHO KILLED HIS WIFE AND THAT IF DIDN'T HAVE
ANYTHING TO DO WITH HER DEATH THAT HE DIDN'T HAVE ANYTHING TO WORRY

always pay for my gas at Sprinkle. I have an account there.
Once a month I pay for it. I'm not sure what this is about.
I did pick that ticket up. I didn't want him to have a copy.
I knew the jerks were trying to frame us. They don't have a
BHe said Iied, ticking me
off. He was calling me a liar every time we spoke, even to my
face. I had forgotten about Ronnie borrowing the truck.
They're so stupid. Of course Ronnie was in Guilford County on
10/9. He was at the Church with all of us that night.
CChurch would make this
comment to me to tick me off! He kept saying it in a way as to
point the finger at me.
DHe wouldn't know the
truth if it hit him upside the head which is what I felt like doing!
