INTERVIEW OF WITNESS
MICHAEL ROY CARSON
W/M, DOB: __-__-77
#12 CHRISTIAN TRAILER PARK
CARSON was interviewed at the Arkansas State Police CID office in Jonesboro, Arkansas on January 20, 1994, at approximately 12:30 p.m., by Investigator C.A. BEALL.
CARSON related the following information.
I was in jail at the Craighead County Detention Center in early August of September 1993.
I was there about a week to a week and a half. JASON BALDWIN was already in jail.
I was rooming with another boy by the name of JASON LNU.
We were playing cards. JASON LNU, myself, BEDDLE, and BALDWIN. The other JASON was my partner, and BEDDLE and BALDWIN were partners. We were playing spades. Mainly I was learning how to play spades. I came straight out and ask BALDWIN if he did it and he said, "no".
The next day, they had just called us to go into our cells for lunch.
I said, just between me and you,did you do it? BALDWIN's answer was, "yes, I did it".
We had about two minutes to talk. BALDWIN told me that, "we sucked blood from a penis". He never used the word scrotum. He told me, "we played with the balls after they were out of skin." BALDWIN told me he put the balls in his mouth. BALDWIN told me that DAMIEN did this along with him.
BALDWIN said, when we get all of this over with he is going to kick MISSKELLY's ass.
BALDWIN told me he put the balls in his mouth and sucked the blood out of the penis.
Actually it wasn't until two or three days later that BALDWIN told me the gory details about the balls and the penis. BALDWIN told me, I'm going to walk straight out of here. They don't have the evidence on me. My parents are going to throw a party for me. BALDWIN sounded like they only cut one dick off.
The first person I have ever told was my Dad. I was watching TV and he was on the couch. I told my Dad what BALDWIN had admitted to me. He ask me would I take a lie detector test and talk to the cops.
At first I told my Dad, I didn't want to get involved with this.
Yesterday, my Dad called the prosecuting attorney. I went to his house and talked to him (BRENT DAVIS).
I told BRENT DAVIS that BALDWIN looked me straight into the eye and told me that he did it.
A black guy that was in jail for murder may have heard the same thing I did. The only thing I know him by is his first name, LEONARD. I'm not asking anything in return. I don't want anything. I would refuse anything in return. I'm telling this because it is the truth.
Me and BALDWIN never got into it over anything.
At this point the interview was concluded at approximately 1:30 p.m.
