Interview with Curtis Jones
QUESTION 41
INTERVIEWER:

UM, THERE WAS SOMETHING ELSE I WANTED TO ASK YOU ABOUT, CUT ONE SECOND PLEASE. WHEN IT FIRST OCCURRED TO YOU, YOU KNOW, AFTER HE WAS MISSING, THAT YOU FELT THAT HE WAS NOT COMING BACK, THAT HE WAS DEAD.

Curtis Jones:

Well, uh, I say, say about that Tuesday. You know, after, I thought maybe they had him, holding him, holding him what you used to call hostage or something and they was to bring him back, you know. Uh, so after that Tuesday, and listening to the people's talk, down there, the local people's talk, uh, that's when I had feelings that he wasn't coming back, you know. ‘Cause on that road, my grandfather Wilmer, most of those peoples that live around there was his, uh, church members, you know. So he came by and talked with us, and uh, supposed to have been looking after us, and uh, telling us different stories about different situations that had happened down there and that's when uh, I realized that you know, it was possible that he wasn't coming back. ‘Cause there's been uh, no kid that grew up in Chicago, you know done a little mischievous thing, uh, they'll catch you and kick you in your behind, that's it you know. So, I didn't think they'd kill them, you know.
