I have his name somewhere - searched for him and could not find him in area of Asheville, NC
June 1998 John Ramsey Interrogation by Lou Smit and Mike Kane (Re: Alley House Sitter)

0758 20 LOU SMIT: We had heard that there
21 was a caretaker in one of those two houses in
22 the back, someone was caring for the house right
23 about that time. I don't know if you know
24 anything about that or if you had heard anything
25 on that?

0759
1 JOHN RAMSEY: No, I don't. We had
2 heard once this lady lived here before these
3 people bought it.
4 LOU SMIT: (INAUDIBLE.)
5 JOHN RAMSEY: She was a single
6 divorced women or divorced woman, no kids, was
7 going to CU, and somebody told us that she took
8 in boarders and -- which we didn't know. It was
9 kind of a surprise. But she had sold the house
10 and -- that house actually sat empty for quite a
11 while. There was something -- there were some
12 students who lived in that house after she sold
13 it and these people moved in.
14 LOU SMIT: 777?
15 JOHN RAMSEY: Right. These people
16 did not move in right away. It was maybe almost
17 a year later.
18 LOU SMIT: Now, one of the things
19 that I was always interested in is you have done
20 a lot of investigating into this, and you were
21 around, probably knew some of the people or some
22 of the people had talked to you like Joe
23 Barnhill across the street or maybe the next door
24 lady to the south there. Did anyone, to your
25 knowledge, move out suddenly after this or did

0760
1 you have any indication that somebody may have
2 left suddenly?
3 JOHN RAMSEY: I don't remember
4 anybody doing that.

Page 202 “John and I were both amazed at the number of transients who lived in close proximity to our Boulder home. We had learned that the house across the alley was occupied by a house-sitter during that Christmas. This man disappeared within days after the twenty-sixth. Who was he? Why had he left so quickly?”

Page 362 “A man who was working as a house-sitter in the home across the alley from our Boulder house left town shortly after the murder. Was he checked out thoroughly? We don't know. A complete neighborhood canvas was never done.”

jameson note: I have this man's name and was told he had moved to Asheville, NC. I traveled to Asheville a few times, never could find any evidence of him other than an old address. No one knew him, no one knew where he went. I did NOT ever get any information that led me to believe the police ever did an interview with him but wouldn't swear to that either way.
