Q White jacket and white pants?
A Yes, sir, I believe so.
Q And did they bring the trundle some place close to Dr. MacDonald?
A They brought the trundle in and placed it more and less in front of the doors to the closet of the master bedroom, parallel to that wall.

MR. SEGAL: Would you be good enough to mark this as D-10.

(Defendant's Exhibit No. 10 was marked for identification.)

MR. MURTAGH: Your Honor, we have no objection. We don't know if it is to scale.

MR. SEGAL: Beg pardon.

MR. MURTAGH: I don't know if that is to scale or not.

THE COURT: Very well.

(Counsel confer.)

BY MR. SEGAL:
Q Let me show you an item marked here as D-10 and ask whether that generally resembles the trundle?
A That's fairly accurate.
Q Now, the trundle, of course, has two positions, does it not?
A Yes.

CPT SOMERS: In that case, sir, let me give you this one.

COLONEL ROCK: It will be marked as Government Exhibit 2.

Q Now after you gave this statement on February 18th, what did you do with your handwritten notes?
A I threw them in the trash can I suppose, in the CID.
Q Why did you not preserve those notes which were made contemporaneously with the various observations that had been made?
A Because I made this paragraph on the second page of the -- this portion on the second page of this statement is made directly from those notes. The notes were rather scribbled and illegible by anyone except me.
Q What portion of the second page represents the transposition from your handwritten notes to this typed form?
A The portion referring to the small knife lying on the floor near the dresser, the portion of the phone, the damp spot on the bed, the particular position of the bed clothes -- well, the position of the bed clothes exactly how they were made up or turned down, the word "pig" as noted in those notes, the footprints were noted in those notes.
Q What footprints?
A Paragraph three there, sir, down the hallway, noticing blood on the floor and footprints made in blood near the bedroom.
Q Did that represent the, to the best of your recollection, all the things that you had noted on those yellow pieces of paper that had become transcribed into the three page written statement you gave to Warrant Officer Ellis?

Specimens personally delivered by Special Agent Paul M. Stombaugh on 10/24/74 obtained from Criminal Investigation Command, Fort Bragg, North Carolina (PC-12873 JV) :

Q111    Green bedspread from North bedroom  (D56NB)

Q112    Pink blanket from north bedroom  (D58NB)

Q113    Top sheet from north bedroom (D60NB)

Q114    Pillowcase from north bedroom  (D62NB)

Q118    Glass microscope slide  (unable to read)

Q119    Glass microscope slide  (unable to read)

Q120    Blue sheet from south bedroom  (D-127)
 

Result of examination:

Specimens Q110 through Q115 and Q120 were examined for the presence fabric and/or foot impressions; however, none were found. A review of the United States Army Criminal Laboratory report indicated the various red-brown stains as these specimens were identified as human blood of blood group "A", "AB" or "0." Where a blood grouping is mentioned in connection with a particular item or items in this report, then, identification of that particular stain or stains was obtained from the report of the United States Army Criminal Laboratory.

No evidence that the bloody bedspread (FBI Exhibit Q110) was ever stepped upon as envisioned by the government.

Donald Kalin, Upstairs Neighbor
FBI Interview the day after the murders
                                                                        Date February 25, 1970

________________described the  MAC DONALD familyas an ideal family, with no friction. He Said he believed that the MAC DONALD home life could be described as "beautiful," and that both Jeffrey MAC DONALD and COLETTE had been childhood sweethearts who married at an early age. He said that there was no indication that the MAC DONALDs were anything but extremely fond of their children, and that both the MAC DONALDs maintained a very tender relationship.

______________ advised that he retired early on the night of February 16, 1970. He recalls that he awoke at approximately 2: A. M. on February 17, 1970, at which time he went to the bathroom. While he was in the bathroom, he recalled hearing a siren, which he presumed to be a Military ploce vehicle on an adjament main road. Also at this time, he recalled hearing what he described as a thump.

He introduced himself to a Military Policeman standing at the MAC DONALD front door, entered the living room of the MAC DONALD apartment, and saw an overturned coffee table. He looked from the living room down a hallway and recalled seeing Captain MAC DONALD standing in the hallway, bare from the waist up, and talking with two Military Policemen. He recalls then that Captain MAC DONALD collapsed into the arms of the Military Policemen.

Grand Jury Testimony of Mica on 10/23/74

You saw it come up the hall?

Yes, sir.

And he was loaded on the stretcher and then they proceeded moving back down the hall.

Yes, sir.

Q Now, where were you at that time when they were removing him?

I was still in the master bedroom.

Q  You recall a little episode in the hall?

A  Yes, sir.

Tell us about that.

A  When he reached the point which was approximately in front of the doorway of the front bedroom, he began to struggle, trying to --- appeared to get off the stretcher. He said something about wanting to see his kids, see how his kids were. And I believe, again, I believe it was Sgt.Trevere and the medics forced him back onto the stretcher and continued to take him out of the house.

Q
  Did you observe this struggle taking place?

A  Yes, sir.

Q
  Did he seem to be vigorous and active while he was struggling with the medics ---

A

testimony
of Shaw on
7/23/70

Q  Now you stated that you were present at the time the pictures were taken and you were present at the time Doctor Neal examined the body. Is that correct? What was the time interval between those two events, if you can remember?
A Well, some of the pictures, particularly those that depict the floor at the entrance to the room were taken prior to Neal's arrival. As we entered the bedroom, I heard Ivory say --

MR. SEGAL: Objected to.

A  As we entered the room --

CPT BEALE: The objection is sustained.

A  As we entered the room, Neal was asked to wait for a moment while another picture was taken.
Q  Now, let me again hand you what was marked as Government Exhibit 53. When was the first time that you saw that exhibit or that portion of the house?
 
A  When I first walked down the hallway and stood at the doorway of that room.
 
Q  What does that picture depict -- what did it depict to you at the time you initially saw it?
 
A  A footprint of a naked human foot in reddish-brown liquid of some kind.
 
Q  What was the condition of that reddish-brown liquid?

A
  It was glistening; I would say it was coagulating.

Q
  Now were you present when Doctor Neal entered the rear bedroom?
 
A  Yes, sir, I was.
 
Q  Would you please describe for the investigating officer what he did in that room?
 
A  Doctor Neal moved to the side of the bed, as I said, approached the head of the child, and the first thing I saw him do was reach down and take the child by the shoulder and turn her over. He appeared to be looking for wounds in the back of the child and on front of the child.

Gran Jury Testimony of Browning on 10/24/74

At the time, it didn't seem important. I noted in my notes that this bedspread contained numerous fibers, purple cotton, and two polyester fibers. This sample also contained head hair and a wax sample which was the unknown wax sample.
Q All right. And the purple cotton thread and the polyester fibers were identical to the thread that was used in the pajamas, and the fibers from which it was woven.
A  Yes. They were.
Q  The next item is D221.
A  D221 was a terrycloth robe bearing red-brown stains which was on the door from the hall to the master bedroom. On this I found one cotton thread from the jacket. Also, a head hair from Kimberly.
Q  All right. Next is D229.
A  D229 was a multicolored bedspread bearing red-brown stains from the east bedroom. That's the master bedroom. On that I found several of the cotton threads and one polyester thread. Also, in this exhibit, I found hair from Colette and hair from Kimberly. Kimberly's hair was bloodstained.

MM:
       Do you have any indication as to how, what the mix was how much thread as opposed to how much polyester               fiber?

DB:        No, of course we still have the exhibits, all fibers were returned, and we could obtain a count for you if what..

DE:          Were any destroyed in the analysis?

latex or plastic materials. I don't recall that they were in the form of rubber gloves.
Q Then you could not go so far as to say that these gloves would have been in the same batch?

A No, sir.
 
Q Is it your testimony really then that it is possible that these rubber gloves which were found under the sink were made by the same manufacturer?
 
A That is --

Q (Interposing) And as manufacturer of the gloves, pieces of which were found in other parts of the house?

A That is what the report says.

A Yes.

Q You are not really even dealing in terms of probable, are you, Mr. Hoffman?

No, sir.

Certainly.

like the paper demonstration that you did.
A  This stain is pointed out as a blood stain. Later on there was additional blood placed on this garment so the first blood stain is the darker one and it travels up through there; this one up here and down through there. Do you want it measured?
Q  Yes. Now, before you do that, one second; we've got a better ruler. And if you would just stand back one second, it would be helpful -- would it not -- if we have a photograph of those stains that you say match on two sides of the seam? Would it not be helpful to the jury?
A  I attempted to get a photograph made in 1971. Our photo facilities just did not bring it up.

A That is up to you, Mr. Segal.

Q Yes; if the Government will make a light box available, we will do that too. All right; that takes care of the stain on the front. Let's talk about the other stain -- the one you say there is a tear through. Would you do that, and come down again, please, Mr. Stombaugh -- oh, I'm sorry. I wanted to mention that before you did that, if you would, please, use this ruler and measure from the bottom of the garment to the lower edge of the stain you say you found on both sides. Give us that measurement first, then I will tell you what other measurement I want.

A I would estimate 25 centimeters.

Q
From the bottom of the garment to the beginning of the stain?

A Correct, sir.

Q Now would you measure down from the top where the "V" of the neck comes? We will use the piping which exists there, so again we will have a precise indication of where this is.

A Roughly ten centimeters.

A I believe I can hold it here, Mr. Segal.

Q All right; now you are showing us -- let's describe this area, please?

A This is the left. torn seam. It is the torn portion of the fabric in the left sleeve.

Q Let me see if I can hold it. I think if we tape it, we would allow the jury to see it. Let's do that, please. There is no reason that any of the jury should not see it entirely.

A You want me to tape it?

Q Tell me, if you would, where it would help if I put the tape on it?

A Right here (indicating).

Q All right.

A This area right here. It is a small stain, and it goes over to the other side and then comes back in.

Q All right; let's measure that, please, if you would. All right; from the bottom of the cuff -- that would be fine. We are going to measure from the bottom of the cuff to the lower edge of this stain you say you found on both sides.

A It runs about 20 1/2 centimeters to 23

THE WITNESS:  We are getting too much light here, Mr. Segal. It obliterates just about everything.

MR. SEGAL:  I'm sorry, Mr. Stombaugh. I'm not sure we are clear on that. You say that the light box is giving off so much light that you cannot see any of the stains through it?

Q  That is no help to us now?

A  No help.

Q  All right, thank you, Mr. Stombaugh. You may go back to the stand. But you say it was a help in 1971?

A  The stains were much more vivid in 1971 and the light box had a rheostat on it to control the amount of light coming through.

Q  But you didn't actually need it, you say, in 1971 to find the four stains you are talking about today?

A  Yes

Q  And at that time you did not observe this blue item that you are talking about. Is that right?

A  No, I did not.

Q  Did you see Captain MacDonald's body removed from the master bedroom?

A  I saw the body removed, sir.

Q  And who moved his body?

A  Specialist Four Mica.

Q  Anybody else assist him?

A  Not until he started to give him mouth-to-mouth with Sergeant Tevere.

Q  Well, when is it that you first observed this blue cloth?

A  When I came back up the hallway, sir.

Q  When you came back up the hallway?

A  Right, sir.

Q  When you came up the hallway, where was Captain MacDonald's body?

A  Approximately right in front of the hallway, sir. It had already been moved.

Q  He had been moved?

A  Yes, sir, he had.

Q  About how far had he been moved from his original position that you saw him?

A  Approximately five to six feet.

In which direction?

A  Towards the hallway. His head was facing down the hallway.

Q  When you originally saw his head, his head was where?

The first time I seen him?

caught the table with his instep and lowered it gently to the floor. That was the only way that I was ever able to get that table to come to rest in the position as you see it in the photograph; deliberately placing it on the floor and not dropping it at all.

Q:  It is also maintained that CID Agents claim that CPT MACDONALD could not have seen the faces of the murders as he claimed yet when the Article 32 officer, COL ROCK, could clearly see the faces of persons in a position as indicated by PT MACDONALD. Do you have any information regarding the lighting in this particular investigative reenactment?

A:  None whatsoever.

Q:  Let's address ourselves from this point onto allegations made by 1LT Michael J. MALLEY in his letter dated 6 Dec 70 which he sent addressed to LTG John J. TOLSON, Commanding General, XVIII Airborne Corps and Ft Bragg, North Carolina. Did LT Malley send you a letter?

A:  Yes, I have a copy of that letter.

Q:  All right, you have had time to read it then and analyze his allegations?

A:  Yes, I have.

Q:  Then would you tell me please, if you have any information regarding the fact that the CID agents gave possible perjured testimony or did in fact give perjured testimony at any time during this investigation?

A:  I am convinced that at no time did any CID Agent perjury himself in this case. I personally did not.

Q:  At any time during your observation of the conduct of this investigation did you observe or did you perform any acts that could be identified as being grossly negligent in your investigative activities?

A:  I did not.

Q:  Did you observe anyone else being grossly negligent in the conduct of this investigative activity?

A:  I saw investigative actions conducted that I feel as a more experienced investigator, I might have handled differently. But when you speak of being grossly negligent, no, I saw nothing that was grossly negligent which implies that someone is being deliberately improper. I didn't see any of that, no.

Q:  Did you see any acts of incompetence? What are you getting at? Would you please answer the question?

Note from Christina Masewicz: In my opinion, the "What are you getting at?" is in response and should be as an answer, with the "Please answer the question as another question.

A:  Well, yes, I will. I saw, I was made aware, that prior to the arrival of Mr. Ivory, who was the first investigator on the scene, there were approximately 18 military policemen who went thru the quarters. This, I think, is incompetent on the part of each military policeman involved and on the part of the military police duty officer who was at the scene.

Q: 
Would you furnish me a complete description of how you obtained this information, how long it went on and who, if you know were the 18 military policemen who went through and what you meant by going through prior to the arrival of Investigator Ivory?

A: This information was was developed from CPT SOMERS' and CPT THOMPSON's interview of LT PAULK, SP4 MICA, and other military policemen who they interviewed. They informed me that through interviewing the military policemen on the scene as to "who specially did you see in the house," they developed 15 to 18 names of MP'S

Lt. Paulk to FBI on Feb 19, 1997

Note: The date of this interview is wrong, it should be Feb 19, 1970


       
Lieutenant Paulk advised that he issued orders for a road block but was told by the Desk Sergeant that a road block had already been instituted. He said that when he caused to be broadcast an alert for two negro males, one white male, and one white female, wearing a large brown hat.

        Lieutenant PAULK was told that the ambulances were having difficulty locating 544 Castle, at which time he dispatched Sergeant CALDWELL from the Military police to intercept the ambulances and escort them to the scene. He also requested that the Provost Marshal's Office be notified.

        Lieutenant PAULK then recalled returning to the MAC DONALD apartment, again ordered all unnecessary personnel to leave and admonished all present to preserve the scene. He returned to the master bedroom where D. MAC DONALD was still reclining on the floor and noted a knife adjutant to the woman's body on the floor near to a dresser. He said that to the best of his recollection, the knife he described as a paring knife variety, had its blade turned toward the woman's body with the point directed to the woman's right ankle. He said that as he preserved the room, he noted that blood on the woman's head and hair appeared to be dry, and that blood on Captain MAC DONALD's leg was also dry. He said that he saw a bloody footprint in the hallway area, but does recall the exact location. He said that at the time the footprint impressed him as being that of a child or a small woman's footprint. He said that he recalls the print to be dry. He said that a pool of blood in one of the bedrooms noted on the floor was not dry.

        Lieutenant PAULK said that to the best of his recollection, the bed located in the master bedroom appeared to have been turned down as if someone had been in the bed and had gotten up. He noted a damp spot approximately two

Grand Jury Testimony of Newman, 8/27/74


Q And what did you observe when you removed the sheet?

A I observed that he had three wounds. He had two wounds on the chest, one on the left upper arm and he also had a knot on his left forehead that had an abrasion on it. And he did have a pair of blue pajama pants that had some blood on them, and they were torn.

Q Now when you say they were torn, in what manner were they torn?

A The seam was ripped out.

Q This was not a tear in the fabric but the seam had opened up?

A Yes, sir. There was no tear in the fabric, the seam itself had come loose.

Q At what point was the seam opened?

A Approximately mid-thigh and --

Q That's from the crotch down to the mid-thigh?

A Yes, sir. On both sides on both legs of the pants.

Q You say there was blood on the pajama bottoms. How much blood would you describe as being on the pajama bottoms?

A Just a moderate amount, sir. I -- they were not soaked.

Q They were not dripping with blood?

However, regardless of whether it was or not, I contend to you, sir, that those things did not and could not have gotten there in any fashion other than the way I have described it.
Now there's another interesting fact to be noted about the strings and fibers of this pajama top. We find one of them under Kristen MacDonald's fingernail. How in the world did it get under Kristen MacDonald's fingernail? Captain MacDonald had taken his pajama top off in the master bedroom. Now admittedly, he was still wearing his pajama bottoms, and we know they were torn. And incidentally, sir, I suggest to you that the pajama bottoms were torn at the same time the top was, because who would wear a pajama bottom which was then torn in that manner otherwise? And if it had been torn in that manner at some time prior to the night of the 17th, washings would probably have taken care of any stray fibers which might otherwise fall, so how did that little fiber get under Kristen's fingernail? I don't believe, sir, that a fiber will fall underneath someone's fingernail. A little bit of fiber floating around is not likely to do that. How did it get there? I suggest to you, sir, that it got there while Kristen MacDonald was alive, while she was clutching, and remember, sir, she has numerous wounds to the hand, as though she were attempting to protect herself or to reach out, and I suggest to you, sir, that she did reach out and she encountered the garment of her assailant, and her assailant was Captain MacDonald, and that, sir, is how that fiber came to rest under the fingernail of Kristen MacDonald.
So I suggest to you, sir, that there are many factors which do not match up, either independently or in conjunction with the story that Captain MacDonald tells of that evening.

Tevere to
FBI on
2/17/70


There was no light on in this room nor was any light on in the second bedroom he enter where he also found another child lying in bed with blood covering her face.

        Upon entering the living room, there was a coffee table overturned and several objects on the floor. Another MP unlocked the front door and other MP's then entered the premises. Upon returning to the bedroom where two bodies were lying on the floor, TEVERE noticed that the woman had one eye open and her pajama appeared to have been disarranged. Her right hand was inside the pajama bottoms.

        He could see wounds on the white male and this white male was moaning for help. TEVERE stated that the white male said the following:

 

 

"Look, look, I am a doctor and they tried to kill me. There were four of them, a white female wearing a floppy hat and holding a candle, saying 'Kill those pigs. Acid is groovy.' Also there were two white males and one Negro male. Check my kids, check my kids, what have they done to my kids? They beat me and were stabbing at me. I think I scratched the Negro on the face."

 

 

 

 At this time another MP, Specialist 4th Class MICA had proceeded to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. About this time, he learned the male was Captain JEFFREY MAC DONALD and the woman was his wife.

        While Specialist Mica was giving mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, he mentioned that there was a strange odor coming from the area of the Captain's mouth. Tevere leaned over and described what he called a drug odor coming from the Captain's mouth. He thought this was strange but said nothing further.

testimony
of
Jacobson on
7/17/70

Q
  Now with respect to the wound of the abdominal area, what was its relative severity and description?

A  The wound in the left upper quadrant of the abdomen was also superficial wound. It went to the abdominal musculature rectus. Again, we didn't probe it, we don't know the exact depths, but it did not cut any muscle fibers. It was a laceration type wound.

Q  Was it necessary to suture this wound?

A  No, it wasn't.

Q  What was the extent of the injury to the head, doctor?

A  The injury to the head was a -- a -- apparently a blunt type of injury, a little bit to the midline of the forehead. It -- was some swelling probably of moderate degree with some ecchymosis and slight skin abrasions. There wasn't any depression that could be palpated.

Q  Did you have occasion to check Captain MacDonald's entire head?

A  Yes, I believe I went over his head probably rather rapidly, but there wasn't any evidence of any significant other injury at the time that I examined him in the emergency room.

Q  Did you find any neurological abnormalities associated with injuries to the head?

A  No, I didn't.

Q  With respect to the wound in the left upper quadrant, can you tell us what it was? What it consisted of.

A  The upper left quadrant of the abdomen?

Q  No, I am talking about the shoulder area, or the pectoral area?

A  At the wound site there were four puncture type wounds or punctuate wounds along a tract, a linear track, and I believe it was in this direction, toward the apex of the shoulder. They were paced rather evenly about two to three millimeters apart. We did not probe these for depth and a -- we took their significance as minor after having seen the
x-ray. We had no pneumothorax there; in fact they would probably not allow an air leak in themselves, a chest leak.

right chest approximately 3 cm from the midline over the 4th intercostal space. This measures approximately 1.5 cm in length. There are 21 small puncture wounds present on the anterior chest, most extensive over the left precordium. There are small, measuring approximately 1 cm and are surrounded by a small ecchymotic discoloration. Three similar puncture wounds are noted on the left anterior upper area. The breast

LUNGS: The right and left lungs weigh 210 and 175 grams respectively. The right lung reveals a small defect in its anterior surface measuring 1 cm in length and approximately 1.5 cm in depth. The edges are sharp and surrounding parenchyma hemorrhage is seen. The dependent portions of this lung reveal some congestion, however no other lesions are identifiable. The pulmonary arteries are free of thrombo-emboli and the bronchial system contains a thin, bloody fluid. Examination of the left lung reveals two incisional defects located on the anterior medial surface of the upper lobe approximately 1 cm and 2.5 cm from the margin. These measure approximately 1.5 cm in length and the lateral wound is about 1.5 cm in depth. There are four round defects with underlying parenchyma hemorrhage immediately superior to the laceration. Each measures approximately 3 cm in greatest diameter. Sections through the parenchyma reveal a smooth gray-tan, homogeneous appearance without evidence of infiltrate or extensive parenchyma hemorrhage. The small bronchi contains a frothy, bloody material

INTERNAL EXAMINATION:
THORACIC CAVITY:
The body is opened with the usual Y-shaped incision. The external rib cage reveals several penetrating incisional wounds extending down into the underlying tissues. The largest defect is present on the left precordium and the second rib is completely transected at its cartilaginous junction. A second defect is noted on the right precordium over the 4th anterior rib extending through this cartilaginous portion. The left thoracic cavity contains approximately 1000 cc of liquid blood and approximately 500 cc is present in the right pleural cavity. The superficial parietal pleura covering the anterior lung surface reveals several penetrating wounds which extends approximately 2.5 cm into the lung parenchyma. The right lung has one penetrating wound and the left lung has three penetrating wounds. All are directly beneath the skin wounds. Several superficial ecchymotic areas are clustered over the anterior left lung, near the midline at the level of the second and third ribs, representing the puncture wounds.

next to me or very close to me when someone said, "how long will it be before they move the bodies?", and someone said it would be hours before that, and this man muttered, "Goddamit," or "shit," or words to that effect indicating his displeasure. He then walked from the edge of the carpet,, crossing the carpet and picked up what appeared to be a flower pot. I said, "Don't touch it." He put it down and said , "Oh." I then observed him proceed to go and sit on the couch. Then I and someone else said, "Don't sit down," or words to that effect. He then got up and walked back and stood on the edge of the carpet.

Q:  Did he make any changes in the position of the flower pot?

A:  Yes, he stood it up on its base on the flood. It had been previously on its side when I first observed it.

Q:  While present in this area of the crime scene, did you observe a wallet, and if so, relate all details you can recall regarding its position, color, and anything else you observed.

A:  Yes, sir, I saw a wallet lying on the floor. It was open, lying flat. A few bills were exposed and it appeared to be dark in color, either brown or black. I was approximately seven feet from the end of the hallway towards the front right end of the couch maybe three or four feet from the edge of the carpet.

Q:  Did you observe any other wallet in the house?

A:  No, sir.

Q:  Set forth a physical description of this individual.

A:  As I recall, he appeared to be about 5' 10" or 5' 11" wearing dungarees, Army field jacket, and what I believed to be combat boots. I believe that his hair was dark.

Q:  Did you observe that he had a shirt on?

A:   remember the field jacket being partly open. I really don't know.

Q:  You stated that you observed the left breast and midriff of Mrs. MACDONALD exposed when you first viewed her body. You have since seen pictures of Mrs. MACDONALD's body which show that a towel like covering in the area of her upper thighs and her left breast was covered with night clothes. Did anything occur while you were at the crime scene which changed or caused the change in the exposed parts of her body which you first observe?

A: I heard people talking about covering the bodies. I had my back to Mrs. MACDONALD while I was attempting to help CPT MACDONALD. Whether or not she was covered up I do not know.

Q:  Did you hear anyone  specifically refer to the bodies or to Mrs. MACDONALD's body in particular?

A:  I think I heard someone say, "Look at her," or "It looks indecent."

Q:  Did you ever observe Mrs. MACDONALD's body when it was so covered outside of observing the pictures?

A:  Yes.

Q:  When was this and what did you observe?

A:  When I went back into the master bedroom two things at the crime scene with one of the CID agents it appeared someone had placed a towel over her breast and midriff.

Q:  you have mentioned two things at the crime scene that were changed, one, this covering of Mrs. MACDONALD, and the other, the movement of the flower pot. Did you observe any other changes to the crime scene in any manner while you were present?

A:  Yes, the telephone receiver in the master bedroom. I saw SGT Tevere with it

I, Dennis R. MORRIS, want to make THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT UNDER OATH

On the morning of 17 Feb 70, I was the driver of a motorized MP patrol with SP4 MICA, and we were assigned to patrol the Corregidor Courts Hosing Area, Ft Bragg, NC. We went on duty at 2330, 16 Feb 70, and patrolled the housing area the entire evening. I don't recall us having any incidents at all that night until about 0400 17 Feb 70, when we received a radio transmission directing other patrols to 544 Castle Drive, and since this was our patrol area, we responded to the call. After hearing this radio transmission, I would estimate that we arrived at the quarters within about five minutes. Upon our arrival I saw that there were already 4-5 military police vehicles parked in front of the quarters and the MP's were all standing around the front door. I might add that the radio transmission that we heard said that there was domestic disturbance. MICA and I dismounted and joined the group of MP's at the front porch. Then somebody said to check the rear of the house. I ran around to the rear of the house followed by SGT TEVERE. There was a light on in the bedroom of the MacDONALD residence and I immediately noticed that the rear door was standing open, I believe all the way, and the screen door was closed. I looked through the open door and saw a man and woman lying on the floor, and I could see what I thought were blood stains on her clothing and the rug. About this time SGT TEVERE was standing next to me, he ran back around the house and hollered for the other people to send for an ambulance. TEVERE and MICA and I believe one other MP then entered the house through the back door and I followed them in. I recall that MICA and possibly someone also then moved the man, who I later learned was CPT MacDONALD, away from the woman, and MICA was giving him mouth to mouth resuscitation. Upon entering the bedroom I noticed that the woman appeared to have been beaten on her face and I noticed what appeared to to be a dark blue pajama top covering a portion of her body. I don't recall any portion of her body exposed to view. I started down the hall to unlock the front door but someone had already done that, then someone told me to guard the back door. I then went out on the back porch and stood guard allowed only CID and MP personnel to enter. Shortly after I secured this post, I looked back into the master bedroom, and that was the first time that I noticed that the woman had a white towel covering her midsection. I don't know if it was there when I first saw her or not, but if it was I don't recall it at all until I looked in a second time which was perhaps 10-15 minutes after I had been in the bedroom. Also, while standing guard at the back door, I noticed a piece of stick lying by the back porch, on the right side away from the house. I noticed a paring type knife and an ice pick lying under a nearby bush. About the time I noticed these items, one CID man came around the side of the house and I pointed out these items to him. The CID personnel then covered these items with boxes to protect them from the rain, and later I saw them marking the items. I remain at the back door for about two hours until I was relieved by another MP. I then took a break and then went to the front of the house, where I remained until the three bodies were removed. While in front I noticed that there two ambulances parked in front, and I believe that three medics there dressed in whites and there

chest?
A Yes, sir, I did.

Q And could you give us the location of that?

A This is square in the mid-axillary line, eight inches, around the chest from the midline.

Q Now is it fair to say that the place you found actually by examining Captain MacDonald, to be the locale of the chest tube insertion, is where you believe actually that the knife wound or ice pick wound has been made?

A I had believed that it was near the -- the stab wound was near the eight-inch wound for surgery, and such does not appear to be the case.

Q  In fact, in view of the actual correct location of the stab wound being three and a half inches from the midline, would you now indicate to the investigating officer, what organs are endangered by a stab wound to that area of the chest?

A  Well, that far around in front, I believe it entirely possible that the diaphragm could have been contacted, had this knife been inserted beyond the chest wall, and had it been say, inserted to a depth of -- I would say -- two inches or more, I think it might have contacted the liver.

Q
  When you say two inches from the outer section of the body to the liver?

A  Yes, I think -- you see, the liver is rounded in that area and it retreats somewhat from the chest wall, but if you enter a couple of inches you are going to get it in the diaphragm and into the liver, if you are within three and a half inches of the midline in front.

Q  So that your estimation, only a two-inch penetration by a stabbing instrument would be necessary to possibly touch the liver in Captain MacDonald's case?

A  I did.

Q  When did you see him?

A  I saw him first in the evening, about 8 p.m. That would be February 19th.

Q  And where did you see Cpt MacDonald?

A  In his room at Womack Army Hospital.

Q  And for how long did you see him on that date?

A  Approximately two hours.

Q  And did you see him on any subsequent days?

A  I spent about 6 hours with him on Friday and two hours Saturday morning before the funeral services.

Q  Was anyone else there for that length of time besides yourself and Cpt MacDonald?

A  Thursday night there was Bob; Friday there was Dr. Manson and his wife were there that afternoon and five or six of his close friends. Then there was his sister. Dudley Warrington (sic -Dudley Warner) from San Francisco, etc., was there.

Q  Did you have occasion to observe the injuries on or about Dr. MacDonald's head?

A  Yes.

Q  What injuries did you observe and would you describe them for the investigating officer?

A  Well, the first thing that was immediately apparent was that he had a chest tube coming out of his right anterior chest --

Q  Excuse me. I want to come to that if you will, but would you first direct your attention to any injuries on or about the head area.

A  He had a large contusion over his left mid-forehead area and a smaller one over his right temple, frontal temple area.

Q  With regard to the second injury, the right frontal temple area, would that in any way -- was it in any way obscured or anything?

A  It was partially obscured by the hairline.

Q  Now did you observe any other injuries on the body of Cpt MacDonald?

through, but it was into the muscle so we don't really classify it as a superficial laceration.

Q  If I may put it in another term, are you saying, sir, that this wound did not puncture the muscle wall?

A  It did puncture the muscle wall.
 
Q  Did it go through the muscle?
 
A  Well, I didn't probe down to see if it reached the level of the peritoneum, but it was through the muscle.
 
Q  But you don't know if it was in the peritoneum?
 
A  I think it would be better to query one of the surgeons who may have examined that wound more closely.
 
Q  Was Captain MacDonald in shock when you saw him?
 
A  That depends -- what you mean by shock.
 
Q  Was he in cardiovascular shock?
 
A  Well, as I recall, when I reached him he was on the stretcher. He was lying down and the blood pressure and pulse had been recorded on his sheet and I glanced at it. I don't recall what it is; I don't know whether it is in the records or anything, but judging from what I saw I wasn't immediately concerned that he was in severe cardiovascular collapse. Of course, people, we see people who have been in shock, whether they are standing up or when you lie them down and the blood pressure may return to normal: then you set them up, they are immediately in shock, so I think that, you know, that one examination I'm sure was taken when he was lying down. I'm not sure of the validity of that in evaluating whether he was in cardiovascular shock.

COL ROCK:  Did you have any conversation with him?

WITNESS:  The only thing he said to me was, "Am I gonna be all right, doc, am I gonna be all right?", and I said, "Yes, I think you are."

and picked it up. Jeff said "Go ahead and read that -- its wild." So I opened the magazine and the first article I saw was one with illustrations of necklaces in the form of devil signs and people participating in a witchcraft ceremony. The next page had an article about a girl called Lada and her black swan, which we discussed. I turned the page and saw an article on the Sharon Tate murders-- We said it was terrible and that drug abusers were sick, disturbed people. I closed the magazine and placed it back on the table, and we continued watching TV. Altogether, the conversation about the entire series of articles lasted about 10 minutes out of a 2 - 3 hour visit, and most of that ten minutes we discussed Lada and her black swan.

        After the incident I saw Jeff in the hospital on the afternoon of the 17th. He had a large bruise and lump on the left side of his forehead and more lumps on the left side of his head. He also had numerous ice pick wounds on his chest and arms, and also what looked like two knife wounds on his abdomen.

        I have been placed on administrative hold several times during the past few months but have been cleared to proceed to Vietnam on this date by the prosecuting lawyer. I am to report to port of embarkment, Travis AFB, 17 July 70.

 Doctor SEVERT H. JACOBSON, 2121 B Beech Street, Fayetteville, North Carolina, furnished the following information:

        Doctor JACOBSON advised that he is currently the resident surgeon at Womack Army Hospital, Fort Bragg, North Carolina, and a captain in the Unites States Army. He advised that he was on resident call from about 4:30 PM on February 16, 1970 to 7:30 AM on February 17, 1970.

        Doctor JACOBSON advised that he first saw Captain JEFFREY R. MAC DONALD at approximately 4"30 AM on February 17, 1970. He advised that he had been called to the emergency room and saw the captain there. He advised he then remained with MAC DONALD through his preliminary examination in the emergency room, to the x-ray room and finally to Ward 2D which is the surgical intensive care ward. He advised that during this period he was not called upon to perform any surgical activities on Captain MAC DONALD.


        To the best of his recollection, Captain JACOBSON described Captain MAC DONALD's injuries as follows:

        (1)  Superficial laceration on left upper arm - not bleeding.

        (2)  Bruise on forehead - moderately swollen.

        (3)  Small, approximately one centimeter in diameter, puncture wound in right lower chest.

        (4)  Superficial laceration on left upper abdomen.

        (5) Small puncture wounds (four or five) in vicinity of left chest near nipple appearing like pin pricks with 
                various others scattered around chest area

        (6)  Dried blood around lips, nose and on hands.

       After consultation with DR. GEMMA later in the morning on 17 February, it was decided to insert a tube (thoracotomy) into the ACCUSED's chest as he then had a 40% pneumothorax.

        JACOBSON is of the opinion that a doctor who inflicted a pneumothorax of this nature upon himself would not know what the final medical consequences would be. 

        JACOBSON indicated that the ACCUSED's chest wound was in the general area of his liver and diaphragm. He agreed with the defense counsel's statements that the other puncture type wounds in the left pectoral region of the ACCUSED's chest ". . . could have touched the lung and the could have healed itself. . . ." (p 615) and that reference head injuries, " . . . there is no medical relation to what the injury looks like on the surface as in what damage it causes to the brain. . . ." (p615). (pgs 586-680)

Q  Now as you proceeded down the hallway do you recall seeing other military personnel in either of the two bedrooms that you passed?
 
A  Well, sir, there were people in the hall as we took the stretcher down. I believe when we went past the bedrooms people that were in the hallway, some of them stepped back into the hallway leading to the bathroom and into the doorways leading into the bedrooms.
 
Q  And to the best of your recollection, were these military police personnel?
 
A  Yes, sir.

Q  And what would your best estimate be as to the number of persons who got out of the way of the medics carrying Captain MacDonald?
 
A  I'd say only approximately, maybe three.

Q  Now when you got to the living room, as the medics were going in front of you carrying Captain MacDonald what persons, or what number of persons did you observe in the living room at that time?

A  I would say at that time there were approximately four to five people.

Q  And was Lieutenant Paulk one of those persons at that point that you recall?

A  Yes, sir.

Q  And when you say four or five people are you including in that number this unidentified man?

A  Yes, sir.

Q  So that by your own observation at that point, not including Captain MacDonald, there were two medics with Captain MacDonald, two military police in Captain MacDonald's bedroom. Is that right?

A  Yes, sir.

Q  Another medic who was in or about the area?

A  Yes, sir.
 
Q  There were approximately three military policemen in the hallway and got out of the way as you went down the hallway?

A  Yes, sir.

I  Donald H. Jeffery, Want To Make THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT UNDER OATH

About 0350 hrs, 17 Feb 70, the ambulance section of USAH where I assigned for duty was alerted to go to 544 Castle Dr, Ft Bragg, NC, to pick up victims of a stabbing. PFC CASTELAN got into my ambulance as the attendant and we proceeded to the address given to us over the radio. A second ambulance followed us operated by SP4 PAULSEN and PVT NUCHERENO. On arrival at 544 Castle Dr, we were advised that only CPT MacDONALD was alive, but that he was badly hurt. CASTELAN and I prepared the litter and entered the the quarters through the front door. From the front room hallway entrance we could see that the CPT's head was towards the master bedroom door so we stopped and turned the litter around, then proceeded to the bedroom. Once inside the bedroom we placed the CPT on the litter and proceeded out again. As we passed the bedroom located on the left in the hallway, the CPT attempted to get off the litter. He grabbed for the door and I had to stop and move to him to calm him down. He said "I've got to get to my kids and see if they're OK" he was crying when he said this and his speech was broken. I told him that his kids were alright and he settled down. On arrival at the emergency room the attendants there took over. I remained at the hospital for about 30 minutes then returned to the quarters I had come front to stand-by.

Q.  Who put the CPT on the litter?

A.  PVT NUCHERENO, SP4 PAULSEN, PFC CASTELAN, an MP and I.

Q.  What part of the CPT did you get hold of to place him on the litter?

A.  I placed my hands under his back.

Q.  Did you see any blood on the CPT's hands?

A.  I didn't notice if they were bloodied or not.

Q.  Were the CPT's pajama bottoms damp or bloodied in any way?

A.  I noticed that the crotch of his pajamas was torn, but I didn't notice if they were damp or bloodied.

Q.  Was there much blood on the CPT?

A.  I saw some blood on his chest, but he did not appear to be very bloody. I saw three puncture holes which appeared to have been made by a small knife, these appeared to be in his frontal area.

Q.  Did CPT MacDONALD say anything enroute to the hospital?

A.  I was driving the ambulance and didn't talk to him but I did overhear him say that he needed some fluids in his body because he was going to pass out and was going into shock. While in the quarters he told us to elevate his feet, this is where he first told us that he was going into shock, then again as we passed Mallonee Village Ft Bragg, NC. CASTELAN told me that the CPT had said while in the ambulance that his wife had called out to him "help me JEFF, help me JEFF but I just couldn't get to her"

Q.  Did he say why he couldn't get to her?

A.  No he did not, I also heard this same thing from him as we were putting him on the litter at his quarters.

Q  Can you indicate when this medic sat down approximately where it was?

I believe it was right about here.

Q  Right about here?

A  Yes. I believe it would be almost in the center.

     MR. WOERHEIDE: 
He's indicated right here, directly in the center.

He just put his rear end on the thing and somebody said get the heck out of there and he got up and left. Is that it?

A  Yes, sir.

Q  Here's a view taken of the north bedroom. Does this appear to be what you saw?

A  Yes, sir.

Q  Now here are two pictures. One made just inside the door of the south bedroom and the other one actually further over, around here. And, of course, the perspective is being different. What you saw is different. But, this is the bed and the little girl who was in the north bedroom. Is this the appearance when you saw it.

No one other than authorized personnel.

Q  To your knowledge, is there -- was there any object which was seen by these people, which was subsequently missing from the premises, in the living room before your arrival?

A   In this area?
 
Q  Not just this area, I am talking about the entire living room.
 
A  No, subsequent to my arriving, just inside of the doorway, jut laying on the corner of that desk, closest to the door, was a wallet.

Q  What, to your knowledge, happened to that wallet?
 
A  To my knowledge it was taken by -- in all probability, one of the ambulance drivers. We later discovered it in the vicinity of Womack Army Hospital.
 
Q  Did you see that wallet, yourself, or was it seen by someone else and subsequently reported missing, or found?

A It was reported to Major Parsons and myself, by military policemen who were in the living room, that it was missing.

Q  That he had seen it and --
 
A  Yes, I am not sure whether Major Parsons saw it or not.

Q
  Anywhere else in the house?
 
A  I did not find them anywhere else in the house.
 
Q  Do you know whether there were any fibers and threads found elsewhere in the house?

A  I think there were some found in the north bedroom.

QUESTIONS BY ATTORNEY EISMAN:
 
Q  Getting back to where you found them in the hall, where in relation to the master bedroom would that have been?
 
A  Well, the master bedroom opens off the east end of the hall. This would have been at the entrance to the living room.
 
Q  According to your information or opinion in this case, nothing occurred in the living room. How would you explain the fact that there was a profusion of fibers at that end?
 
A  That was the hall where there was a profusion of fibers.
 
Q  I thought you said that there were fibers --

Lt. Paulk to FBI on Feb 19, 1997

Note from Christina Masewicz: The date of this interview is wrong, it should be Feb 19, 1970


       
Lieutenant Paulk advised that he issued orders for a road block but was told by the Desk Sergeant that a road block had already been instituted. He said that when he caused to be broadcast an alert for two Negro males, one white male, and one white female, wearing a large brown hat.

        Lieutenant PAULK was told that the ambulances were having difficulty locating 544 Castle, at which time he dispatched Sergeant CALDWELL from the Military police to intercept the ambulances and escort them to the scene. He also requested that the Provost Marshal's Office be notified.

        Lieutenant PAULK then recalled returning to the MAC DONALD apartment, again ordered all unnecessary personnel to leave and admonished all present to preserve the scene. He returned to the master bedroom where D. MAC DONALD was still reclining on the floor and noted a knife adjutant to the woman's body on the floor near to a dresser. He said that to the best of his recollection, the knife he described as a paring knife variety, had its blade turned toward the woman's body with the point directed to the woman's right ankle. He said that as he preserved the room, he noted that blood on the woman's head and hair appeared to be dry, and that blood on Captain MAC DONALD's leg was also dry. He said that he saw a bloody footprint in the hallway area, but does recall the exact location. He said that at the time the footprint impressed him as being that of a child or a small woman's footprint. He said that he recalls the print to be dry. He said that a pool of blood in one of the bedrooms noted on the floor was not dry.

        Lieutenant PAULK said that to the best of his recollection, the bed located in the master bedroom appeared to have been turned down as if someone had been in the bed and had gotten up. He noted a damp spot approximately two

as you observed it?
 
A  Yes, sir.
 
Q  Did you ever see, yourself, the wallet after you left the MacDonald house?
 
A  No, sir.

Q  Now before you left the MacDonald house about 4:15 had any photographs been taken to your knowledge of the crime scene?

A  No, sir, at the time I was leaving the photographer was just arriving.

Q  And when you say he was just arriving, did you know who the photographer was and recognized him?
 
A  Yes, sir.

Q  Who was that person?
 
A  Mr. Alexander.
 
Q  And when did you come in contact with Mr. Alexander? That morning.
 

A
  Well, he was in the living room. He had his cases set down, more or less off in the dining room area, right  near the foot of the stairs leading to the hallway. He was starting to assemble his cameras.
 

Q
  And that's when you left the MacDonald house?
 
A  Yes, sir.
 
Q  All right, at that point when you left the MacDonald house, the wallet was still on the rug where you described it?
 
A  Yes, sir.

Q  The white flower pot was still lying on its side as you had observed it?
A  No, sir.
 
Q  What position was it in? Was it on its base?
 
A  It was on its base.
 
Q  And how had it gotten from its position of lying on its side to standing on the base?

A  I don't know for certain, sir, but I believe it was that man who sat on the couch. I believe he sat it upright.

Medlin, Trial 7/31/79, Esquire Magazine 1

Q        All right; will you tell me why you know, if you know, that no identification was possible in that regard?

A       The magazine resting on top of the stack was in this position here, so that no one saw the edge. And as different ones--miliary policemen and different members of the investigative team or other persons--would sit , they would pick this magazine up and thumb through it.

          The print was noticed by Mr. Turbyfill to be on the top, once it was turned around in this position--this is the sofa--and he looked down and he said, "That looks interesting," or words to that effect.

          At that time, the magazine becomes evidence. Before, it was just another magazine that was on a stack of magazines under the edge of the coffee table.

Q       Well, if it was just a magazine as part of a stack, can you tell us any reason why so many investigators were thumbing through it? Did they have so little to do at the scene that they were looking at magazines for amusement?

A        Yes, sir.

Q        He picked up and thumbed through the magazine; right?

A        I saw him with the magazine. That is all I can say, sir. Now, whether he was reading it or what, I did not stay there and observe him. Mr. Ivory picked it up and looked at it in my presence. Mr. Turbyfill picked it up in my presence and looked at it.

Q        Did he look at it before noticing the bloody print on the end?

A        No, sir; that is when he picked it up.

Q        You mean, when the student fingerprint examiner picked it up, he did not thumb through it? He just took note of the bloody fingerprint and called it to your attention?

A        He picked it up in this fashion here, after he had noticed the print, and looked at it in this fashion (indicating).

Q        I thought I recalled you a few minutes ago saying that the MP's had picked it up. Do you have any reason to believe that any military policemen, as opposed to CID agents, had touched the magazine?

Q          Now, was item G123 from the bedspread compared with items G121 and G201 from the chair and coffee table.

A
        They were all three from a different source of origin.

Q
        So, none of those compared with any of the others?

A        They did not. No.

Q        Is it your conclusion that if somebody had walked around in this house with a candle, dripping wax on the bedspread, the chair, and the coffee table, and they carried one candle, that the items would be similar?

A        Yes. They would be from a common source if only one candle was involved.

Q        And, so, the emphases is that they were all dissimilar. That hey came from different sources. Is that correct?

A
        Yes. That would be my opinion.

Q
        All right, now. Let's go to the paint. What examination did you make with respect to paints?

A        We examined that, both, for the organic constituents and the physical characteristics.

Q        All right. Now, what items of physical evidence did you examine? I have noted here A4, E203, and E299.

 I,   John W. Reynolds, WANT TO MAKE THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT UNDER OATH

Beginning about 1445, 2 Feb 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. Now at Ft Belvoir, VA.

Mrs. KALIN agreed to the interviews 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 allow me to obtain hair samples from herself and 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 Pamela seven photographs: three of knife #2, marked D-P-C-FP-82-70; one of knife #1, marked D-F-C-FP-82-70; one of the ice pick, marked D-P-C-FP-82-70; one of piece of wood, marked Ex A, D-P-C-FP-82-70; and one piece of wood, marked Ex A-4 P-C-FP-82-70, along side 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  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.

for the purpose of laboratory examination, did those four pieces of wood resemble in terms of their condition as to weathering G-79 or did they resemble G-86?

CPT THOMPSON: Now I object to that question. It is completely irrelevant.

MR. SEGAL: The question, apparently afoot here, there is some connection found on the outside and on the inside, and we are entitled to find out whether in fact any of the wood on the inside appeared to this investigating officer to have weathered in the same fashion. In the alternative, of course, would be now if the government would have made the wood available we wouldn't have to ask an opinion of a witness who has no special knowledge in this area.

CPT BEALE: The objection is overruled.

Q  What is your answer, sir?
 
A  In respect to weathering only, they appeared to have been weathered more like Exhibit G-86 than G-79.
 
Q  Does G-79 appear to have a number of linear cracks running with the grain in it? What is your answer?
 
A  Was that a question?
 
Q  Yes, does G-79 appear to you to have cracks running with its grain?
 
A  Yes, sir, it does.
 
Q  Have you ever observed a piece of wood in your common experience which has been exposed to the rain and weather and then dried?
 
A  Yes, I have.
 
Q  Does it appear in some way to have a bearing in the terms of developing similar cracks which you see in G-79?
 
A  I think so.
 
Q  I beg your pardon?
 
A I think so.
 
Q  Now when you first entered the MacDonald house you made certain visual observations of the living room, I believe you told us earlier. Is that right?

testimony
of Duffy on

A-4 which you have previously marked in regard to certain items in the bedroom, and this is the floor plan layout of the MacDonald house, and ask whether you can point with your finger to where the location of that bush would have been, now that you have A-19 to look at and the floor plan to refer to?
 
A Right, sir, right on the corner of this house, right back here, sir.
 
Q Would you indicate with this green felt marker in a large oval if you will, indicating the approximate size and place of that bush?
 
A  Yes, sir.
 
Q  All right now would you mark with the initials "IP" the point at which you saw the ice pick?
 
A  Right here in the middle.
 
Q  You have written the "IP" as I see it here actually within the circle to represent this bush?

A  Right, sir.
 
Q  And the reason for the marking in that was because of the location of the ice pick?
 
A  Right, sir.
 
Q  And it was actually under the bush itself?
 
A  Right, sir.
 
Q  Now did you also find any other item besides the ice pick?
 
A  Yes, sir, once we noticed the ice pick, nobody touched it, and we made note of it to the proper people, then we started sweeping around towards the back door, and I noticed a stick was lying on the ground.
 
Q  You noticed a stick that was lying on the ground?
 
A  Yes, sir.
 
Q  Now could you, first of all, look at A-4 again and initially indicate with your finger about where you believe that stick was located?

A  Sir, I think by the back step, here, sir.

persons present in the house?

A:  No, not that I recall.

Q: Were your fingerprints taken for comparison against prints found in the house?

A:  No they weren't.

Q:  Were you in the master bedroom of the house?

A:  Yes, when I first arrived I went in and looked at Mrs. MacDONALD. To see (unable to read) obvious that she was dead and I did not touch her, I looked around the (unable to read) and saw the word pig written on the headboard of the bed, but I didn't touch anything and then I checked on both little girls. I checked the pulse on the older girl, felt that she was cold and knew she was dead too. I looked at the little girl, but it was obvious that she was dead so I didn't check her pulse or touch her. I then returned to the living room where I remained until I took the wallet outside to my ambulance.

Q:  Did you touch anything else while you were at the MacDONALD residence?

A:  Not to my knowledge. I remember looking at a paring knife that they found in thebackyard but I did not touch it. It was being held by either an MP or a CID Agent. I don't remember who.

Q:  Do you have anything further to add to this statement at this time?

A:  No, I believe that I have told you everything that I can recall.

DOJ Summary of Grebner's
Recollections taken 10/29/75

FRANZ JOSEPH
GREBNER, - Witness

        In February of 1970. Mr. Grebner was the Commanding Officer of Detachment B with the Third Military Police Group which is called Criminal Investigation Division for Fort Bragg. Under his supervision are CID agents Ivory, Shaw and Paul Connolly, as of 1970. On the morning of February 17, 1970, he received a call from Bill Ivory, who is the duty investigator for the dates of February 16 and 17. As a result of this call, he went immediately to Fort Bragg to 544 Castle Drive, where Ivory said an incident involving the death of a woman and two children had occurred. He arrived there around 4:45 to 4:50 that morning and Mr. Ivory was the CID man in charge of the premises at that time. Upon his arrival, he met Mr. Shaw on the front lawn and they spoke briefly. Other people were outside the quarters and were conducting an outside search. Beside the CID personnel, there certain MP personnel in the area. Mr. Grebner recalled that a  as he pulled up the street it was quiet congested and there was no place to park. He remembers that there was a military policeman at the front door and MPs also inside the front door. Major Parsons was standing between the living room and the dining area and a military sergeant was standing at the end of the hallway. Sergeant Alexander, who was a member of the 135th Military Police Detachment was there as a photographer for the photo lab in the role of backup.  When Grebner arrived, Alexander was in one of the back bedrooms doing some photo work. Grebner stated that he left the premises before the bodies of Colette, Kimberley and Kristen MacDonald were moved and went back to his office, because many things had to be coordinated and done outside of the immediate crime scene. Efforts had to be made to contact not only the FBI but the Fort Gordon Laboratory. The local police authorities also were notified and some of them came in off leave to his office and offered their assistance. Quite a few patrols were out looking for people who might have committed the murders because descriptions had gone out over the radio to the military police vehicles. Suspicious individuals were being picked up and brought to the office for questioning and identification photography. Descriptions were also given to civilian authorities as well and they were picking up people, and photographing them, and identifying them. The area that was to be

And who else?
 
A  And Investigator Ivory
.
Q  Was anybody else present at that time?
 
A  There were several MPs, whose names I do not recall offhand.
 
Q  What did you do at that time?
 
A  I entered the house. I briefly spoke to Major Parsons. I then walked down the hallway to the rear, looking into each bedroom. I did not enter any of the bedrooms; I stood at the doorway only; returned to the living room, at which time Mr. Shaw asked me if I would come outside to the rear of the quarters, of where he showed me a wooden club and a knife and an icepick.
 
Q  Where were these objects in relation to the house?
 
A  They were immediately outside the rear door to the utility room; the club was adjacent to the back stoop and the icepick and knife were a foot or two away underneath a bush.
 
Q Mr. Grebner, I want to show you a diagram, which I believe has been furnished to us by the prosecuting attorney, stating this to be 554 [sic] Castle Drive, this being done by Mr. Bostic. Do you recognize this diagram?

Statement of WO1 Robert Shaw, Jr., taken at Fort Bragg 16 Dec. 70, continue

several people outside, investigators and medical people I believe, I am not sure about that. Well, I went in to the place and I spoke briefly to MAJ PARSONS and the military policemen, and asked them where IVORY was, and they told me he was in the back bedroom. So I went through the quarters, I made brief observations into the rooms that I could see and what I could see in the given light conditions, and I contacted Ivory. I got a very brief synopsis from him as to what he thought had occurred, what information he had, and what actions he had taken. I was senior to IVORY at that time in rank, but there was a man senior to me at that time at the scene also. That was also an investigator, Carl Black. It was my action at the time to go ahead and allow IVORY who was the duty investigator to have complete charge of the scene. In fact, at one point, not too long after I had been in the quarters, I told him, "You're are in charge of this scene until you are relieved, so what do you want me to do," and he gave me some instructions, and I said, " All right, now everyone else who is at the scene should get these same kind of instructions from you." He said, "I will take care of it." What he had asked me to do was to start processing the south bedroom for evidence. So, I went and I did that.

Q:  Go ahead, and explain in general after you processed the bedroom for evidence, what did you done then?

A:  Well, I was ---

Q:  Did you search outside, did you go into other activities?

A:  While I was doing this, this detail in the south bedroom, sketching and making observations, I noted that CW3 GREBNER, who was the chief of CID at Ft Bragg had arrived at the scene and I went outside to make contact with him, and see what his feeling were on this thing. He spoke briefly and I brought him up to date on what information I had and what it looked like to me, what my opinions were about this incident, and I recommended to him to call Ft Gordon and ask for a laboratory team to come and assist us with the crime search and proceeding. He agreed and he assigned someone to do that; to call Ft Gordon. I went back to the south bedroom and continued. IVORY came to me an hour later and asked me to go outside and assist in the search of the outside area. It was beginning to be just a little bit  light and we wanted to see if we could find any evidence outside. So I did and without going into a great amount of detail I discovered what were later shown to be some of the murder weapons, in fact it was a 31 inch wooden club, an ice pick and a knife. After this was done, I continued (unable to read next two words) observations in an investigation outside looking for footprints and so forth, and then I returned to the quarters and continued processing the south bedroom.

Q:  So from 17 Feb 70 until what time were you directly involved in this investigation either in the collection and preservation of evidence or interviews, interrogations and other investigative work?

A:  I was involved in this investigation until, well I would have to say, until on or about the 15th of August, either in collection and preservation of evidence or interview and interrogations seeking expert guidance, running evidence to the laboratory, and that sort of thing. Writing reports and what have you. I did not do anything else of substances other than on this case.

Q:  Mr. Shaw, let us now direct ourselves to the specific allegations that have been made and we will treat the allegations of Mr. Albert (sic) KASSAB first. During your activities in this investigation, did you notice that COL KRIWANEK, who was the Ft Bragg Provost Marshal at that time, failed to properly supervise both military police and CID during the investigation?

Subject: United States v. Jeffrey R.
Mac Donald,
Criminal Case
No. 75-26 CR 3

                        Date  July 5, 1989

 

Mr. Kenneth Nimmich
Chief, Scientific Analysis
Section Laboratory Division
Federal Bureau of Investigation

 

                        From  Brain M. Murtagh
                   Special Assistant
                   United States Attorney
                   For the Eastern District
                   of North Carolina

 

 

 

This is in reference to the allegations of "Fiber Misidentification and Cover-Up" contained in the material provided by Mac Donald's Private Investigator Ted Gunderson to Executive Assistant Director, Oliver B. Revell. I received a copy of these materials from the Department of Justice's Office of Professional Responsibility. Gunderson maintains that the same threads found on the club, which FBI Examiner Paul Stombaugh identified in 1974 as matching the cotton seam threads of Mac Donald's pajama top, were subsequently identified in 1979 by the FBI Examiner (blacked out) as being composed of black wool. Gunderson further contends that these results were suppressed at my behast.

        I anticipate, based upon numerous statements coming from the Mac Donald public relations apparatus, that this allegation will form the basis for a motion to set aside the conviction pursuant to U.S.C.
2255. As a Special Assistant United States Attorney for the Eastern District of North Carolina for the purpose of the Mac Donald litigation, I will have primary responsibility, as I have had for the past five years, for replying to such a motion on behalf of the United States. In order to resolve the issues raised by Gunderson it will be necessary to determine whether Paul Stombaugh and (blacked out) were looking at the same fibers, or different fibers which came from the same evidence collection vial. Ultimately, I will be aking the FBI Laboratory to make this determination.

        In order to facilitate the identification of materials examined by Paul Stombaugh and (blacked out), which are believed to be in the custody of the FBI's Charlotte Field Office, I request copies of any notes prepared by Paul Stombaugh, (blacked out) or Shirley Green, which I have not previously been furnished. The only such material covered by this request, and that I am aware of, would be the summary notes of Shirley Green which are in (blacked out) custody. Therefore, please furnish me with a copy of those notes.

One bluish-black wood fiber and one green wool fiber were found in specimen Q89. The source of these fibers is unknown at this time. White wool fibers were also found in specimen 89. These fibers exhibit the same microscopic characteristics as the white wool fibers found in the composition of the specimen K12 rug, and accordingly, are consistent with having originated from the K 33 rug. White animal hairs (no roots)were also found in specimen 89. No other hairs and/or fibers of apperant significance were found in specimen Q89
