Beginning about 1445 2 February 71, I interviewed Mrs. Violet M. Kalin and her daughter,Pamela L. KALIN, at the KALIN residence, 19A Holbeinring, Hoidelberg, West Germany. Also present was CW3 Donald L. KALIN.
Mrs. KALIN agreed to the interview on the condition that there would not be any signed, written statement. In addition, she declined to allow herself or her daughter to be fingerprinted, and she refused to allow me to obtain hair samples from herself or her daughter. Mrs. KALIN explained her lack of whole-hearted cooperation by saying that she felt that her family had been exposed to continual CID questioning at Ft Bragg and that, in some instances, the treatment of her family by CID had been harsh and unprofessional. She cited, in particular, the incident in which her daughter had been pushed, in Mrs. Kalin's mind, into identifying one paring knife as being part of the MacDONALD kitchen inventory. In addition, she
I then showed Palema seven photographs: three of knife #2, marked D-P-C-FP-82-70; one of the knife #1, marked D-P-C-FP-82-70; one of piece of wood, marked Ex A, D-P-C-FP-82-70; and one of a piece of wood, marked Ex A-4 P-C-FP-82-70, alongside the above Ex A. Pamela stated that she could not recognize any of the items. I then asked her about the bent paring knife she allegedly identified as MacDONALD property on 19, Feb 70. She stated to me that what she had said was that that "particular knife could have been MacDONALD property." I asked her how familiar she was with the items in the MacDONALD kitchen and she replied that she occasionally washed their dishes while babysitting at the MacDONALD home.
