The date on this report is 5-15-81.
Agent Bradley and I were talking with James Seabolt at Keddie and he told us that he remembered having seen a WMA about 5'10 or 5'11, short dark hair, with POI. Seabolt said that he had seen this man a number of times at Cabin # 13 while F. Davis was still living there. The man seemed to be a friend of Davis as well as POI. Seabolt said the man drives an old green 1 1/2 ton Chevy truck with plywood sideboards and for the past year has been selling wood and hauling junk metal. Seabolt said he thought the man lived across the river near the swinging bridge. This man had been with POI in Keddie a few days before the murders. Seabolt said he has not seen the man very often since Davis moved out and has not seen him at all for the last two or three weeks. Seabolt also told us of a guy who lives at # 7 Keddie and works for the railroad and drives a '79 or '80 Toyota truck who has not been around for a couple of weeks. Seabolt does not know the guy's name.
Frank Davis Report:
On 6-4-81, at 0905hrs, Special agent Mike Crim and I interviewed Mike Davis at the Sheriff's Office. Davis said he used to live next door to the Sharp family, in Keddie. He moved out about two weeks before the homicide. Davis said he did not know the Sharp family. He saw the Sharp kids around, but didn't associate with them. Davis did not know Dana Wingate, although he knew who he was. When asked if he ever noticed anything unusual at the Sharp residence, Davis related the following: About three weeks before Davis moved out of Keddie, "there was a hell of a fight" between Sue and a man. Davis thought it might have been on a Friday night, and it was about 10:00p.m. Davis heard loud yelling, and he looked out his window. He saw Sue and the man standing outside the Sharp's front door. They were yelling loud obscenities. Davis heard the man say, "you dirty ---t". Sue yelled, "you bastard". The argument last for about a 1/2 hour. Davis said he didn't know how long the argument lasted inside the house. Davis described the man and his vehicle as follows: WMA/35, about 4" taller than Sue, stocky build, and dark curly hair like an afro. Davis didn't think the man had a mustache or glasses. He described the vehicle as a 1978 or 1979 chev. blazer, white top-dark green sides and a white bottom. The vehicle was stock looking, clean, and no dents. Davis had seen the vehicle at the Sharp residence about a half a dozen times. Davis did not know what the argument was about.
Davis was shown the pictures of the composites. He had not seen them in the paper. He said the man that had the argument with Sue looked a lot like the dark haired composite, except the man not have a mustache, his hair was curlier, and he was wearing glasses. He said the shape of the face was similar. He didn't think the blond composite looked like anyone he knew.
Davis couldn't give any information about parties on the night of 4-11-81. He said that on the night of 4-11-81 he was probably at home or Bob Saari's house. Davis asked if we had talked to the people who used to live in cabin #16. Davis said Dana used to visit the people who lived in that cabin He said someone else lives in that cabin now. We checked the Keddie residents. The list said Plyer has lived in Cabin #16 since January 1981. I asked Davis if Dana visited cabin #16 before the Sharps moved to Keddie. He said he thought so.
Davis drives a 1963 Plymouth station wagon, white over tan.
Davis said the man that had the argument with Sue looked like his legs were too short for his body.
Later this same morning SGT. Brubaker and Agent Crim contacted Davis at his residence, to confirm the color of the vehicle. Davis said it is white and dark green. Daivs said he had seen a blazer on the way home, and is now certain that the man who argued with Sue was driving a blazer.
It's obvious that the police talked to James Seabolt around the time they were over at 26 looking at the patch of dirt which turned out to be from septic tank work. This was almost 3 weeks before they talked to Frank Davis. Who was the mysterious friend? The report does not say but certainly the police asked. There is no way Frank could have seen a man over at Sue's - around 10:00p.m.- good enough to describe him as well as he did. He also said he didn't think the man was wearing glasses only to say he was. He must have had great vision to see that the blazer had no dents in it. If there is any truth to this crazy story I'd have to say it was him seeing a blazer at Sue's several times. Vickie Krois boyfriend from Idaho owned a white/green blazer and she practically lived in Sue's backyard. From the PON list:
Lived Keddie, knew John & Dana, they didn't stop by Gold Pan Motel 4/11/81, wht/grn Blazer owned by Vickie's (her sister) boyfriend.
