CID statement of Dennis Morris, MP

On the early morning of 17 Feb 70, I was the driver of a motorized MP patrol with with SP4 MICA, and we were assigned to patrol the Corrigedor Courts Housing Area, Ft. Bragg, NC. We went on duty at 0330, 16 Feb 70, and patrolled the housing area the entire evening. I don"t recall us having any incidents 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 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 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 (illegible) followed by SGT TEVERE. There was a light on in the bedroom of 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 else 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 be a dark blue pajama top covering a portion of her body. I don't recall seeing any part 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 allowing only CID and MP personnel to enter. Shortly after I assumed this post, I looked back into the master bedroom, and that was the first time 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 looking 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 of the CID men 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 remained 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 were two ambulances parked in front, and I believe that there were t least three medics there dressed in whites and there
