13 Q. (By Chief Beckner) Did you, the
14 night of the 25th, did you help undress
16 A. I did. I think I was asked that
17 before, but I don't -- I mean, I at least
18 took her shoes off, I believe, later on. I
19 carried her upstairs, laid her in bed, took
20 her shoes off. I don't know if I took her
21 coat off.
22 Usually what I would do is try to
23 get her semi-ready for bed because it wasn't
24 infrequent she would fall to sleep when we
25 came home like that, before we got home.
1 Patsy would come in, get her in bed totally.
2 Q. I guess what I mean is, did you
3 notice at that time whether she was or was
4 not wearing underwear?
5 A. I mean, I think I would have
6 noticed if she wasn't. But I don't
7 remember. I really don't.
8 Q. Do you recall if you took her
9 underwear off?
10 A. No, I'm sure I did not.
11 MR. LEVIN: Mr. Wickman?
13 MS. HARMER: Nothing.
14 MR. LEVIN: I think we are done.
15 MR. WOOD: All right.
16 MR. LEVIN: Thank you for talking
17 to us.
18 MR. BECKNER: Thank you for your
20 THE WITNESS: You are welcome.
21 Thanks for coming out.
22 (Whereupon, the interview of JOHN
23 RAMSEY was concluded.)
That's it, folks. While we were all waiting for those interviews to produce something that might help get the case solved, they were in there asking the wrong damn questions.
Realize, K&C could have asked anything at all as long as they did not go over old ground - they had asked to get together in the spirit of sharing to discuss the case and ask questions that came up since the 1998 meetings. The Ramseys agreed to do that.
They could have been bringing out tip sheets, crime scene photos and lab reports - - they could have talked about the information that came out in so many books.
They could have asked more about people from John's work, from the pageant circuit. They could have asked about so many things - - and this is what they did.
I really have something to attend to but wanted to finish up with John's interview.
Tomorrow or Wednesday I will start with Patsy's. (Actually should have done hers first but... that's OK - we can all work with it.)
OH, I hear Spade is posting the actual transcripts as well - - someone care to let me know where? I would like to see if they have been edited.
