My name is Brian Woody and I live at 1823 Goodwin with my parents. (TR 1530) In May of 1993, I worked at Radio World. It's a car stereo place. I was not acquainted with Stevie Branch in May of 1993. I got off work at six-thirty that day. After I got off work, I went to my mom's house to pick up my wife and little boy. When I approached Fourteenth Street on Goodwin, I saw four kids going into Robin Hood. You know, right there where the road dead-ends. There was two of them that was pushing a bike, one that was carrying a skateboard, and there was one that was walking. I was going 40 mile an hour, but I seen them because one of them had spiky hair. (TR 1531)

I didn't know one of the little boys had that kind of hair cut until the next day at noon. When I told my Mom that little spike-headed boy looked familiar. I also assisted in the search. I went and got my father-in-law's three-wheeler


and rode around with some other guys just looking everywhere. State's Exhibit Three shows the little boy with the spiked hair cut. I remember the hair because my kid had the same kind of haircut. (TR 1532)


I do remember talking to the police on at least three different occasions. I do recall on May the 28th talking with a Detective Hester. I recall on September the 7th, 1993, talking to Bryn Ridge of the West Memphis Police Department. The first time I talked to the police was on May the 6th when I told them I had seen the kids. (TR 1533)

I think it was Gitchell I talked to that time. I remember stating on the 6th that it was approximately 6:30 to 6:45 when I observed the four boys. I got off work right at 6:30 on May 5th. It is my testimony that I saw two of the boys pushing bicycles. (TR 1534)

I couldn't tell you if the earlier exhibits showing the bicycles, were exactly the same bicycles. The one with the skateboard was the third one and then the one without anything was just walking behind them. There is no doubt in my mind that I only saw two bicycles. I have never been asked to identify who the fourth individual was. The police officers never showed me any pictures or photographs. I saw the boys at Goodwin and Fourteenth. (TR 1535)


I have lived in that particular area since 1978. (TR


1536) I am familiar with McAuley Street. When I was a kid, I used to go down there all the time. I saw the boy a few hundred yards away from where 18th dead-ends. It's a long way from that point to the other point. I have observed other children playing in that area. That's why I didn't think anything of it. There would be nothing unusual to see children coming in and out of that area on any given day. (TR 1537)

I recognize the one boy who had spiked hair. My son wore that hair style. During that time, there were a lot of children I saw wearing that type of hair. I observed the four boys for about five seconds. I was doing about 45, I'm not going to lie, but I remember seeing the bicycles and skateboard. (TR 1538)

I wasn't really paying attention to what they were wearing. All of them had their backs to me, so I couldn't identify what any of them looked like. I could not tell the ages of the individuals I saw, they were just young. (TR 1539)
