Ryder truck was not Timothy McVeigh?
A. Yes.
Q. But that you didn’t get a good look?
A. Right.


Q. Okay. When we met — or let me rephrase that. From the time that you first met with the FBI, which was on May the 3d and the 4th of 1995, until May the 16th of 1997, you had never advised anyone that there was anyone other than one olive-complexion male that got out of the vehicle; is that correct?

A. Right.

A. Yes.

Q. Okay. And you have never said that Timothy McVeigh was the person who got out of the truck; isn’t that correct?

A. Yes.

memory, didn’t you?
A. Yes, I did.

5 Q. The very first time they came and talked to you, you said, “I’ve been through a lot of
trauma, I’ve been through a lot of things in my life”?
A. Yes.
Q. “And I just don’t have a good memory of these events”?
A. Yes.
Q. And that’s true, isn’t it?
10 A. Yes, it is.
Q. And do you recall that in the newspaper, the week that you saw the FBI, there were
sketches —
A. Uh-huh.
15 Q. — of this John Doe 2 person that you talked about today?
A. Yes.
Q. Do you recall that?
A. Yes, I do.
Q. You told the FBI that the man was wearing a baseball cap right?
20 A. Right.
Q. Just like the paper showed the day before they interviewed you?
A. Yes.
Q. And you told the FBI the man was tanned, didn’t you?
A. Yes.
25 Q. Excuse me?
A. Yes, I did.
Q. And it says right here the very same information, doesn’t it, tan?
A. Yes.
Q. It doesn’t say olive-skinned, does it?
30 A. No.
Q. Excuse me?
A. No, it doesn’t.
Q. And you didn’t tell the FBI olive-skinned the first time you met with them, did you?
A. No, I didn’t.
35 Q. You told them tanned?
A. Right.
Q. Now, later when you were interviewed, you changed from tan-skinned to olive-skinned.

Q. You were in a psychiatric home, hospital, when you were 7 years old?
A. Yes, I was.

45 A. Yes, I was
Q. Were you given a lot of medication during those years?
A. Yes, I was. A lot.
Q. How would you describe the effect the medication had on you?
A. It had caused me to lose memory of who I was and people around me.
50 Q. And you were depressed?
A. I was depressed.
Q. And you were there for a very long time.

A. Yes.
Q. Now, later after you talked to the FBI, you added the purple flames to the hat, didn’t you? You didn’t tell the FBI that, did you, about the flames?
A. I don’t recall what I had said.
Q. Okay. Do you — you were asked a lot of questions by Ms. Ramsey from the defence about what you recall about different interviews. Do you really recall what you told anyone at any interview? Do you have a clear recollection of what you told anybody during these interviews?
A. Yes and no. I don’t recall. I don’t recall much sometimes.
