"I, Dwight Edwin Smith, furnish the following voluntary statement to Special Agents Raymond Madden, Jr., and William V. O'Connor who have identified themselves to me as Agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. I have been advised that I am being interviewed regarding the deaths of Collette [sic] S. Mac Donald and her two daughters at Fort Bragg, N.C., on February 16-17, 1970. The statement is totally voluntary and of my own free will and accord.
"I was born May 28, 1946 at Braddock, Pennsylvania. I currently reside at San Francisco, California. My education consists of a high school diploma. I resided in Fayetteville, N.C., during 1970 and was stationed in the U.S. Army at Ft. Bragg, N.C. having been honorably discharged in 1968.
"I was previously acquainted with Helena Stoeckley who lived in Fayetteville, N.C., during 1970 when I was involved as an employee for a drug program sponsored by Cumberland County. To the best of my recollection, I am not acquainted with any white males by the names of Bruce Johnny Fowler, Shelby Don Harris, Allen Patrick Mazerolle, or an individual known by the nickname of Wizard. I remember the name of Gregory Howard Mitchell but nothing else.
"I have no knowledge nor did I participate in the murders of Doctor MacDonald's family on 2-16-2-17-70. I consider Helena Stoeckley to be a scatterbrain who is totally unreliable.
"I have read this page and the previous page of this statement consisting only of two pages, and now sign it because it is true and correct to the best of my knowledge. I have also initialed the first page of this statement.
