Report, J. D. Church (GCSD): Interview, Ted and Edna Kimble


Top portion of this report is missing.  I took the date from the 11/20/95 handwritten on the first page.

 

TED SEEMED TO THINK THAT WHAT I WAS DOING WAS SLANDER AGAINST HIM AND MAKING HIM LOOK BAD IN THE EYES OF THE PUBLIC. I INFORMED TED AND HIS MOTHER THAT SLANDER WAS A LIE AND THE FACT THAT TED HAD SPENT MONEY THAT THE CHURCH HAD GIVEN HIM TO GET ON HIS FEET FOR A MOTORCYCLE AND HAD FORGED PATRICIAS SIGNATURE ON AN INSURANCE APPLICATION WERE IN FACT THE TRUTH. TED TOLD ME IT WAS NONE OF MY BUSINESS HOW THE SPENT THE MONEY AND HOW DID I KNOW HOW HE PAID FOR THE MOTORCYCLE WHICH I REPLYED "YOU TOLD ME TED".


I REINFORCED THAT I WAS TRYING TO CLEAR TED AS A SUSPECT AND THAT IF SOMEONE GOT THEIR TOES STEPED ON IN THE PROCESS THAT IS WAS JUST TOO BAD, THAT I DID NOT INTENTIONAL, BUT A CONSTRATED EFFORT TO FIND ADDITIONAL INFORMATION THAT COULD LEAD ME TO THE PERSON THAT KILLED PATRICIA.


JUST LAST WEEK TED REFERRED TO ME AS BEING TO SLOW, LIKE AN OLD MAN AND NOT GETTING THE PERSON WHO KILLED PATRICIA. THIS STATEMENT WAS MADE I THINK AFTER TED FOUND OUT THAT HE WOULD NOT BE GETTING LIFE INSURANCE MONEY FROM GEORGIA LIFE UNTIL HE WAS CLEARED.


ON THE POINT OF INSURANCE I INFORMED TED, VERY CLEARLY, THAT HIS

DEALINGS WITH THE INSURANCE COMPANY WAS BETWEEN HIM AND THEM, THAT I DIDN'T WANT TO SOUND LIKE I DIDN'T CARE, BUT THAT IT DIDN'T MATTER TO ME IF HE GOT NOTHING OR $100,000.00. I EXPLAINED THAT THE MONEY PART OF IT MENT NOTHING TO ME ONLY THAT HE WAS TO RECEIVE IT AND THAT WAS ANOTHER REASON I NEEDED TO CLEAR HIM AS A SUSPECT.


HE STILL WANTED TO KNOW WHY HE WAS A SUSPECT AND I TOLD HIM THAT HE HAD NOT BEEN UP-FRONT WITH ME IN THE INVESTIGATION AND THAT HE HAD TOLD ME SOME LIES ABOUT THINGS I HAD ASKED HIM. IN DENIAL HE WANTED TO KNOW WHAT LIES AND I PROCEEDED TO TELL HIM ABOUT THE NIGHT OF THE MURDER AND FIRE THAT HE HAD TOLD ME THAT HE HAD GUNS IN THE HOUSE AND AFTERWARDS I FOUND THAT ONE OF THE THREE GUNS DIDN'T EVEN EXIST, HE DIDN'T EVEN OWN
DR HAVE ANY SUCH GUN. HE ALSO TOLD ME THAT PATRICIA WAS UPSET ABOUT THE $200.000.00 LIFE INSURANCE POLICY THAT HE HAD TAKEN AND FORGED HER SIGNATURE AND AFTER A DISCUSSION WITH HER AND HER BEING UPSET SO BAD THAT HE HAD CANCELED THE POLICY, WHICH WAS NOT TRUE AT ALL.


AFTER TELLING HIM THIS AND HIS MOTHER HEARING SAME EVERYTHING SEEMED TO CALM DOWN AND HIS MOTHER TOLD ME THAT SHE WAS GLAD THAT WE HAD TALKED. I ALSO TOLD THEM THAT IF SOMEONE HAD TO LOOK LIKE THE BAD GUY IN THE INVESTIGATION, THEN MAKE IT ME, BECAUSE I WAS GOING TO DO EVERYTHING I COULD TO FIND OUT WHO KILLED PATRICIA, WHO EVER IT WAS, AND THAT I WAS NOT CONDUCTING THIS INVESTIGATION OR ANY OTHER INVESTIGATION OUTSIDE MY S.O.P. OR THE SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENTS POLICY


I LEFT ON A POSTIVE NOTE I THINK AND TOLD TED THAT I WOULD BE BACK IN TOUCH WITH HIM SEVERAL TIMES AND AS I HAD TOLD HIM IN THE BEGINNING THAT HE WOULD GET TIRED OF SEEING ME AND ALSO GET TIRED OF ME ASKING HIM QUESTIONS, BUT THAT WAS PART OF MY JOB AND I INTENDED TO DO MY JOB.
