"I Debbie Wood make the following statement to retired Detective P.E. Beasley on my own free will. That he has made no promises or incouage me in any way to do so.
"I lived with Helena Stoeckley Davis as a baby sitter, during this time Helena spoke often of the MacDonald murder case. She stated to me that she was in the MacDonald house on the night of the murders. She stated that she saw the MacDonald family killed and beaten. She stated that she took no active part in it. (The killings) During the time I talked with Helena about the murders she was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
"She stated that during the murders she was into witchcraft and that the witchcraft people was the ones that did it. She stated that they were called the black cult, in which she was a member of. She stated that she was drugged and hipnotised into what she did. She would cry at times when she talked to me about the murders. She stated that Dr. MacDonald did not kill his family and that she was going to do every thing she she could to get him out. She stated that she knew who did it and had told investigators who did it.
"She told me that she had beaten up members of the cult that she belonged. And that she had been threatned many times by them. Once while I was living with her I left and went to the store. When I returned Helena had two black eyes. She stated to me that it was some one that belonged to the witch craft. She did not tell me their names."
"There was other times that she had been beaten up. And she was and she would not go to the police for some reason. She seemed scared and afraid of something most all the time.
"At this time I can not add anything else to this statement.
"I have made the following two page statement to retired Detective P. E. Beasley on my own free will and have not been promised anything to do so.
