ANDREW W. BROCK, Detective, Seneca, South Carolina, Police Department, Post Office Box 4773, Seneca, South Carolina, telephone number 803/882-3388, advised that he investigated the death of HELENA STOECKLEY DAVIS for the Seneca, South Carolina, Police Department. He advised that the following is his recollection of the events surrounding her death:

Detective BROCK received a call approximately 1:00 p.m., on January 14, 1983, from ALBERT DAVENPORT who is the caretaker of the Seneca Garden Apartments, South Depot Street Extension, Seneca. Davenport informed BROCK that he had found a dead person in Apartment 938 at the Seneca Garden Apartments. BROCK immediately responded and arrived at the apartments at approximately 1:10 p.m. He met DAVENPORT who was waiting for him. The garden apartments consist of several buildings, each containing eight apartments, four upstairs and four downstairs. DAVENPORT lead BROCK to an upstairs apartment, number 938. Upon entering the apartment, BROCK immediately noticed a strong odor and proceeded through the living room of the apartment to the bedroom where he saw the body of HELENA STOECKLEY DAVIS on a couch in a state of decomposition. He stated that from the state of decomposition and the odor prevelent [sic] in the apartment, there was no doubt in his mind that she was dead. He immediately left the apartment and telephoned Onocee County Coroner, TED DURHAM. He then returned to the apartment and as he neared the door of the apartment, a neighbor asked him if he had found the baby in the apartment. This was the first BROCK knew of any child being involved in this matter. He immediately went back inside the apartment and estimated this was approximately 1:15 to 1:20 p.m. As he entered the apartment, the Emergency Medical also arrived and they entered the apartment immediately behind him. He went back into the bedroom and on this occasion found a baby lying face up on the floor under the crib located on the opposite wall from where the body was located. The baby was alive and appeared to be alert. The EMS immediately took the baby with them for appropriate care. BROCK continued to look around the apartment and he noted that the apartment was very hot. He estimated that the heat was between 75 and 80 degrees or hotter. DAVENPORT turned the thermostat down. BROCK then took several 35 millimeter color photographs of the apartment and body. Following the arrival of the coroner, the body was placed in a

body bag as were all items that were located on the couch where the body was found. The body was then taken to Brown's Funeral Parlor in Seneca where it remained until the following morning.

On the morning of January 15, 1983, Detective BROCK traveled in an ambulance from Seneca with the body of HELENA STOECKLEY DAVIS to Charleston, South Carolina, where an autopsy was to be performed at the Medical University of South Carolina.

At Charleston, Detective BROCK had a conversation with Dr. S. E. CONRADI who was to perform the autopsy. At the doctor's request, following his return to Seneca, South Carolina, the same day, January 15, 1983, he immediately went back to the apartment and obtained all items that DAVIS could have been in contact with, such as pills, drugs, et cetera. BROCK returned to Charleston, South Carolina, on January 18, 1983, and turned these items over to Dr. CONRADI for examination as possible causes of death.

BROCK maintained all items of evidence which he obtained from the apartment pending the final outcome of the autopsy. It was his intention should foul play be involved in the death, that he would forward this evidence to the FBI Laboratory for appropriate investigation; however, when the final autopsy results clearly indicated that the death was from natural causes, he did not forward the evidence to the Laboratory but has maintained the evidence at the Seneca Police Department where it remains.

BROCK advised that his investigation into the death determined that DAVIS had resided at that apartment for just over a month prior to her death. Further, the last person that he could locate who saw her alive, did so on January 8, 1983.
