CONTROL NUMBER, 3109 Investigator, Vondenkamp

*********************.********************~*********** * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

On 5/12/99 I interviewed 16 year old CHS student Christopher Therrien


at his home in Littleton, Co. Chris's step-mother was present during
this interview.

Chris stated he was outside the cafeteria near the south west corner
of the huilding around 11:25am. He has 5th hour free, but usually
meets friends in the cafeteria to have lunch. On 4/20/99 he left Mr
Bundy's math class at 11:15am and walked to the cafeteria, where he
met friends Brian Fry and Bijen Mcnte. Chris did net recall seeing
any unusually large duffle bags in the cafeteria, or anyone carrying
a large duffle bag that day, or the previous day.

They walked outside through the SQuth doors of the cafeteria, talking
about going up to the soccer fields to eat. Towards the corner of
the building, Bijen sat down on the grass and wanted to eat her lunch
there. Chris placed ill marked where he and his friends were standing
on the drawing r provided for him, which depicted the cafeteria and
tables inside. He recalled facing east, talking to Bijen who had sat
down on the grass.

Chris heard popping noises, coming from the north. He immediately


thought they were firecrackers, and it was a senior prank. He turned
to look, and saw Lancs Kirklin fall down about 5-6 yrds from where he
stood. Then he saw a second kid fall down a few yrds west of Lance.
Chris then saw a female fall down directly west of where he stood,
about S yrds. He saw blood on the female. At this same time, Chris
saw a tall (';'1") white male, black cap, large nose, shoulder length

1 JC-001. 001203
hair, black trenchcoat carrying a black 1 1/2 foot long gun, with a
"bullet clip" on the underside of the gun. Chris J:>elieved he was
about 15 yrds from this person, as the person was walking alone down
the outside steps on the north side of the cafeteria.

Chris stated they ran into the cafeteria through a south door. When
he got inside, people were standing looking out the windows. Someone
yelled 'get down', but Chris remained standing and running for the
inside cafeteria steps. He stated he and Brian were up the stairs
'very quickly'. As they ran past a science room, a teacher who was
unaware what was going on, told Chris to stop running. They
continued running through the south hallway planning to inform the
administration. The hallways were empty at this time. They turned
to the north, near the math dept. heading for the administration.
When they reached the north hallway, across from the administration,
Chris stopped because he heard more gunfire down the hall to the
west. The shots were being fired in his direction, ricocheting off
the lockers in the hall. He described the sound as a loud
ricocheting noise, much more rapid than the gunfire he heard outside.
He and Brian ran across the hall into the administration. He did not
see the person who was firing the weapon upstairs, and could not say
how far away they were. As he and Brian entered the administration
area, the principle was coming out and heading towards the west,
Where the gunfire was coming from. Chris, Brian, several students in
the administration area and many faculty members exited the school
north of the principle' .. office. Chris did not ..ee. any gunman, or
suspicions people outside the scbool when he exited.

He ran to Clement Park and was later picked up by a female student he


did not know. They drove to Brian's house and called family.

Chris had no further information on the shootings, and had little


knowledge of the TO!. He had heard of them, and seen them around
school, but did not know any of them.

5235 W.Portland Dr.
Littleton, CO.
303.979 7370

On 05110199 at 1115 nrs. Kathryn Thompson was interviewed in her home by Detective
S.c. Shott #72049 (DPD). Ms. Thompson's mother Bianca was present.

Ms. Thompson reported that she attended class on the day of incident and she entered the
cafeteria between the hours of 11:15AM· 11:20Am. She was with two of her friends who
she identified as Dawn Muirhead and Lonnie Brown. The three of them went over to the
Rebel Corner and ordered something to eat. Ms. Thompson said that she purchased two
egg rolls then the three of them left the cafeteria area and went outside and sat at a nearby
picnic table to eat. Several minutes later, she heard what sounded like gunshots coming
from the area of the soccer field. She first thought that it was the drill team making the
noise unit she saw one of her friends (Anne Marie) being dragged by two of her friends.
Ms. Thompson said that she could see that Anne Marie was wearing a gray shirt and
there was an area on the shirt that was covered with blood. At this point, things started to
sink in as to what was happening. She and her two friends ran into one of the side doors
of the cafeteria and they attempted to find a faculty member to help. They found a janitor
and informed him that someone had just been shot. Several teachers were in the cafeteria
and they were ordering everyone to get on the floor and stay down.

Ms. Thompson said that she and Lonnie ran out of the cafeteria through the main doors
and out into the parking lot. She said that Dawn was wearing a knee brace and could not
move as fast and she ran out another door. Ms. Thompson said that she dropped her
backpack some where near the main entrance of the cafeteria near the picnic table area.
As far as she knows, her backpack is still there.

Ms. Thompson said that she did not see either Eric or Dylan on the Monday or on
Tuesday, the day of the incident. She said that she saw both of litem on the previous
week and believes that it was on Wednesday. At that time, she noticed that both of them
were carrying black backpacks covered with some kind of white writing scribbled over
the surface and both packs had patches that said "serial killer".

Ms. Thompson said that she knew both Eric and Dylan from school and she once had a
date with Eric. She said that she went out with Eric on a Saturday night in February
(l999), Her mother put a stop to the dating because Eric was a senior and he was too old
for her. They discontinued their relationship and remained friends. Eric told her that he
understood her mother's feelings and he agreed not to take her out again.

JC·001.001221
Ms. Thompson said that on the day of the shooting she was wearing khaki pants and a
white T-shirt. She was not in the cafeteria when tile shooting started and ran into the
cafeteria to get help. The only property she left behind was her backpack that should be
in the areaof the main doors near the cafeteria by the picnic tables.

REPORTED BY: Detective Joe A. Montoya #91011

DATE OF REPORT: May 12,1999

TYPE OF REPORT: Investigative Interview

SUBJECT: Jennifer Tindall

Synopsis: JenniferTindall wasin the senior parking lot when the shooting started. She did gel a
look at both of the shooters, but could not make a positive identification on eitherone.

Details:
1) Jennifer Tindall was with Cara Sander in the senior parkinglot when the shooting startedon
April 20, 1999.She was approximately 30-40 yards 10 the south of the shooters, at that time.
Tindall said at first she thought the shooting was a prank, but thenshe saw a blonde female
get shot and fall down in the commons area. At that time she and Sander made it 10 theircar
and left the parkinglot area.

2) Tindall said thatshe firstobserved the suspect standingat the topof the steps that overlook
the commons area. She described him as a thin white male with brown hair,wearing a white
short sleeved Tsshirt, and tan pants. She then saw the secondsuspect run upthe stepsand
stand next to the suspect in the white Tvshirt. She describedlhehim as a heavy set male, with
black hair that was possibly pulledback into a tail, wearing a longblacktrench coat that was
buttoned up.

3) Tindall Saw the male in the white Tvshirt, shooting a long gun toward the parking lot and
commonsarea, but she neversawthe other suspectshoot She didnot get a lookat the
suspect's faces, but insisted that neithersuspect she saw was Eric Harris or Dylan Klebold.

4) I showedJenniferTindall a photoline up containinga photograph O~Tindall


picked out . i hotograph as possiblybeing the malein thebla nc coat. I asked
Tindall how she was ableto pick out~hotograph if she did not see the suspect's
faces. She said that his build looked siril'lrar to the male in theblacktrench coat. Realizing
that you can not see a persons build in a photo line up, I concluded thatTindall could not
positively identify'-"" one of the shooters.

RE: CONTROL it 1756


After failing to locate any male studentsregistered at Columbine High School by the
last name of "Evans" I re-contacted Trent KARNES. KARNES said he thoughtthe other
passengerin his car was "Pete Evans:' but that the other person in his car at the time,
Mindy POLLOCK, would know his name. I then contacted POLLOCK who provided
the only other passenger in the car to be Evan VITALE.

VITALE began by saying a law enforcement officer In plain clothes had interviewed
him at the scene on April 20th 1999. No record of this interview was found In Rapid
Start tracking.

VITALEbegan by describingwhat his class schedule wasat the time of the incident.
He said he had first hour off, second hour was his drawing class, third wasHistory, with
fourth hour In Language Arts, and fifth hour scheduled in Guitarclass. He added that he
had "ditched" fifth hour on April 20, 1999.

At about 11:20am VITALE said he had caught a ride with Trent KARNES, and
anotherpassenger, Mindy POLLOCK. He described KARNES' car as being a small red
two-door and that it WlIS older, but could not provide a make or model. He further
described KARNES' car was parked in what he thoughtwas his assigned space on the
south side of the senior lot, nose in toward the wooden privacy fence facing the
backyards of the homes. As he got into the backseat he heardwhatsoundedlike
fireworks coming from the area of the scacol.

As VITALE turned around and looked back towards the schoolhe saw a white male
standingat the top of the stairs,just north of the cafeteria/library area. He said this male
was facing somewhat toward the cafeteria, and could not see his face. This male was
standingon the opposite side of the shan chain link fence. He explainedthat this male
was resting a long "big gun" on the fence and was shooting it "fast, maybe automatic"
toward the grassy squares in front of the cafeteria. He said this person was wearing a
wniteshirt, black pants with dark hair or a dark hat.

At the same time VITALE saw another white male running up and down the same
stairs. He described this second male as wearingblack pants, black shirt,and a black
trench coat, with as black ball style cap on backwards. He said he did not see anythingin
this person's hands, but added that the other passenger, MindyPOLLOCK, had told him
she saw him carrying a handgun. VITALE said this secondperson was Dylan KLEBOLD.

HE:CONTROL # 1756
He explained that he had seen KLEBOLD around school, andknewhim on sight,but
had notknown his name prior to the shooting.

During thissametimeperiodhe saw a male student running up the grassyhill to the


north I westin an apparent attemptto flee as he hadred on his pant leg, possibly blood
soaked.

After abouttwa minutes Trent KARNES to drive from the lot. AfterKARNES
backed aut of the space VITALE said he looked backat the school and saw what he
described as a "thirdshooter." vrrALE described this person similar to that whichbe
hadof the firstperson. Thishe described was a white male wearing a whiteshirt and
black pants, but could not describe himfurther, other than he wassureit wasn't
KLEBOLD. He explained thatthis person was holding what he thought was a shotgun as
it had a "slide pump thing." He described this person was standing alongside the wall
next to the single door on the west side of the cafeteria. just below the stairs.

VITALE saidhe could not eliminate the possibility that this third person may have
been thesameperson he sawshooting at the topof the stairs. He could not confirm his
having seen all three of the suspects at the sametime. Heexplained thinking it would
havebeen impossible for theperson at the tap of the stairs to "jump the fence" and run
down to this location in the briefamount of timefrom when he initially saw him. He also
felt sure thatthe person at the top of thestairs was holding a much largerlong gun than
the shotgun type weapon held by the person by the door.

vrrALE said prior to the incident he knew HARRIS by name, and againknew
KLEBOLD onlyon sightas a student at Columbine HighSchool. He described that
HARRIS had an ongoing conflict with a friend of his, Cale KENNEDY. He further
described thissaying the two occasionally exchanged fighting type words as theycrossed
in the hallways. He added that he couldnot sufficiently see the suspect at the top of the
stairs due to thisperson beingpartially turned toward theschool, awayfrom him, and
thusdid notknow if it wasHARRIS. He also could nat identify the person standing
beside thedoors of tile cafeteria due to his vanragepcint, -

As they drove from the parking lot he said he hadseen a student-aged boy laying on
the pavement in the parking lot, next to the handicapped parking spaces. He said this
person was not moving, and was facing away from themso he couldnot provide any
further description.

OnMay 11, 1999 at about4:30pmI escorted VITALE to the Senior Parking Lot to
thearea where he thought they had been parked at the time. This was due to his inability
to discern the exact locations on the small diagram of theschool. VITALE pointed out
the areas described above.

third sboorer. Vitale told me that be saw a person standing by the single door that is by the teacher's lounge on the west
side of the cafeteria. Vitale stated that this person was not wearing a trench coat Vitale stated that this person was
wearing a white t-sbirt, possibly black pants and was holding what looked like a shotgun. Vitale stated that after seeing
media photos this person could have also been Eric Harris. Vitale stated that be still isn't SlU:", because he doesn't think
that Harris could have moved from the top of the stairs to the bottom by the single door from the dine he saw him when he
looked out the hack of the window and when he looked out the window again as they were leaving the parking lot

I explained to Vitale that based on his own consistent statements, there is at Ieast one minute between the time he saw the
shooter at the top of the stairs and when he looked out the window again and saw the person standing by the single door at
the bottom of tbe stairs. I further explained that this was more than enough time for that person to move from the top of the
stairs to the bottom. I also explained met the clothing description Vitale provided of the person at the top of the stairs and
the person at the bottom of the stairs was the same.

. 'hen showed Vitale a series of'four photographs (#44. 47. 52, 53) taken from the video camera in the cafeteria on 4-20-99.
eric Harris is pictured in each of the four photos. After looking at the photographs. Vitale stated, "That definitely looks
like the person I saw." After further questioning, it was clarified that Vitale was referring to the person he saw at the
bottom of the stairs by the single door. Vitale stated, "This whole time I've questioned if that I could have seen him
twice." Vitale was referring to Eric Hams.

The interview was concluded with Vitale nc longer having any conoerns in reference to there being a third shooter.

FEDERAL BUREAU OF INYESTIGA nON

oat' of transcription 04/2 8 / 1 999

On April 27, 1999, Christopher Howard Wisher, date of


birth March 19, 1983, of 6572 West Calhoun Place, Littleton,
Colorado, telephone nu~ber (303)730-2530, was interviewed at his
residence in the presence of his father, Howard E. Wisher, date
of birth April 12, 1949. After advisement of the identity of the
interviewing agent and the nature of the interview, he provided
the following information:
Wisher is a sophomore at Columbine High School. He
normally eats lunch during fourth period, whioh he has free, and
at the end of the period at 11:10, he and his friends normally go
outside. On April 20, 1999, just pr~or to the 11:15 bell, he and
his friends, Jake ~~odaca, Josh Chavez and John [Last Name
Unknown] were sitting at a table inside the cafeteria near the
south window, which faces a parkins lot.

Wisher saw Dylan Klebold walk into the southwest


entrance to the cafeteria from the parking lat. He was dressed
all in black, with black trousers, black shirt, black boots, a
black trenchcoat and a black Colorado Avalanche hat worn
backwards, which had a Boston Red Sox emblem sewn on it. Wisher
does not recall Klehold carrying anything, and saw him walk over
to the vending machines in the cafeteria.
According to Wisher, during lunch, Klebold and Eric
Harris would normally s~t in Klebold's BMW in the parking lot on
the south slde of the cafeteria and watch people. Wisher only
knows Klebold and Harris by sight.
After the 11:15 bell, Wisher and his friends walked out
of the southwest exit of the cafeteria, towards the soccer f~eld.
He heard a sound which sounded like fireworks, similar to a
string of Blackcat firecrackers going off. [Wisher indicated
that prior to Apr~l 20, 1999, he had never heard gunfire]. Abcut
50 yards away, outside on the west side of the cafeteria, he saw
a tall white male, dressed all in black, with a black trenchcoat,
and what he thinks was a black hat and dark sunglasses. At the
time, he did nat recognize this person, but thought it might be
~ , a member of the Trenchooat Mafia who is about the
ame height and build.

shotgun, based upon the loud noise and the slower rate of fire.
This shooter then pointed the shotgun at Wisher and his friends
and fired four or five shots at them. wisher and his friends
fell to the ground and covered their heads. When Wisher looked
up, he saw the gunman walking tcwards the southwest cafeteria
entrance.

Wisher also saw a white male dressed in a white short-


sleeved tee shirt and blue jeans, kneeling with his back to him
near the northwest corner of the cafeteria. He did not recognize
this person, and since his back was to him, could only tell he
had either light bro~~ or blond hair. This perscn had no weapon
nor other gear visible.
Wisher saw this person throw an object one-handed on
top of the cafeteria/library roof. It appeared metallic with
sunlight glinting off of it, and one to two seconds after landing
it exploded with a loud bang, a flash of fire and a pall of
smoke.

While he observed the person in the black trenchcoat


shooting outside and the person In the white tee shirt throwing
the explosive device, he also heard very rapid gunfire coming
from somewhere within the school. Wisher was unable to see who
was doing this shooting or tell exactly from where in the school
it was coming from.

After this person threw the bomb, Wisher and his


friends got up and ran to a nearby house on Teller Court, where
Wisher called his father to let him know he was safe. Howard
Wisher indicated he noted the time of the call as 11,20 a.m.
Wisher knows two members of the Trenchcoat mafia, Joe
Stair, a former Columbine student who graduated last year, and
Chris Morris.
He spoke with Morris once about the sport of paint
ball, which they both play. Wisher indlcated Morris normally
sits by himself at a table on the south side of the cafeteria
near the window, but cannot recall if he saw him in the cafeteria
on April 20, 1999.

years. 1asked Mary to tell me moreabout the Trench Coat Mafia. She advisedme that they are, "social outcasts." She said they
have very poor attitudes toward life. and she said they did not care aboutanybody. Mary said after the shootingon 4-20-99, she
talked to her brother, Josh Barnes. and Mary said when she said the Trench Coat Mafia students had been involved in shooting
people. Josh acted like he did not care what so ever about what had happened. Mary said she knew Eric Harris to be a nice, but
"a differenttype of a person." She said Erie Harris was a "very moody" type of a person. Mary said she did nor recall seeing
Eric Harris wear a trench coat. however,he did wear "dark depressing clothes." Mary said she is referring to his black clothing,
and this is why she classified him as an outcast. Mary said she did not know anything further about Eric Harris and said prior
to 4-20-99, she did not know Dylan Klebold,however. she did rememberseeing him at times with Eric Harris at school. Mary
said she has known_since they went to kindergarten together. Mary said that~s very "violent" when
he gets mad. She also said he had. "a really bad attitude." Mary said in fact one time when she was approximately nine years
old.~ punched her in the stomach"out ofthe blue." Mary said she does not know what caused him to hit her in the
stomach. Mary said she tried to stay away fi'om"'due to his "poor attitude" and the "way he treats people." Mary
lid she knows of one other person by the name o t t e but does not know his last name. She said.s usually very nice.
and nice to her, however, he displays a very "hateful attitude" towardpeople. Mary also said he talked about "hurting people:'
I asked her i~ed about killing people, she said no he did not get to that point in his conversations. Mary said ~id
play violentvideo games such as "Doom." Mary,at the time ofthe interview, said she could not provideany further information
about these individuals or about the Trench Coat Mafia. due to the fact she has tried to distance herself from that type of people
for approximately the last two years, Mary said whenshe talkedto her brother,Josh after the shooting on 4·20-99. that was last
time she talked to him. and she has not had any type of communication with him as ofrecently

Mary Barnes advised me she does not know of any other suspects that may have been involved in the shootings. either prior to,
during. or after 4-20-99 Mary said she does not know of anybody. nor has she heard rumors of anybody who may be
manufacturing explosive devices. and/or buying O! selling firearms.

I asked Mary Barnesif she considered herselfa Trench Coat Mafiastudent.or a Trench COOt Mafia student associate. She said
definitely not, and again told me she has distanced herself from this type of people that are in this group. Mary said in fact she
had several friends that were victims of the shooting on 4-20-99.
