I, Kenneth C. MICA, WANT TO MAKE THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT UNDER OATH
At approximately 0345, 17 Feb, 1970, a call was received from the radio operator to proceed to 544 Castle Drive to investigate a possible domestic disturbance. My partner SP4 D. MORRIS, and I proceeded there and arrived at approximately 0350 hrs. There was a group of approximately 6 MP's trying to get in the front door. SGT TREVERE went around to the back door and yelled to get Womack as soon as possible. We both ran around back and went into the house. At this time I saw a woman lying on her back, her clothing torn and covered with blood. She had multiple cuts on the scalp and neck. Her right eye was open partly. Her left eye closed. She was wearing a pink nightgown which was ripped exposing her left breast. A man, later identified as CPT J. MacDonald was lying at a 60o angle to the woman with his head on her chest. The bed was unmade and a large wet spot in the center. There was a small knife lying next to the dresser, and the telephone was dead. At this time CPT MacDONALD started to mumble something. He tried to tun himself over onto his back. He said, "Check my Kids. --- They're in the other room. I can't breathe." At this time I began to administer mouth to mouth breathing. The captain at this time told me, "There were four of them. Two male Caucasians, one male Negro, and one female. I was sleeping on the couch in the living room. I heard them, I started fighting with them. Then one hit me with something." At this time I asked him who hit him and he said he did not know. I asked what they looked like, and he said, "One blonde Caucasian female. She had a brown floppy hat on. Two male Caucasians, and one male Negro. I think I cut his face while fighting." At this time CPT MacDONALD kept losing consciousness. I brought him back three times with mouth to mouth. About 15 minutes later WOMACK arrived arrived and took over. They removed him to Womack Army Hospital.
