around school before. He thought Eric was the student who had "NIN"
on his backpack which are the initials for the rock group "Nine Inch
Nails. u He did not know Eric' s name until he looked him up in the
yearbock after the shooting. He never saw Eric in a trench ecac ,
saying he was usually in jeans and a flannel shirt.

1 JC'001- 003220
• When aSked about Dylan Klebold, he said he also saw him a~ound
school before. He said Dylan was the student who usually wo~e a
dark blue with red letter Boston Red Sox ball oap on backwardS. He
did not know Dylan's name until after the incident. He said Dylan's
hair always Was "flying out" from under the hat. He had seen Dylan
last semester pulling into the school lot in his BMW during lunch
time. He said Dylan would be with others who wore the black trench
coats. He said that Dylan also wore a black trench coat to school

• When asked, he did not know or

• When asked about IIIIIIIIJ he said he graduated last year. He

knew this because a frian'" of his knew He also knows
He said did
wear the trench coat last yea~.

• When asked about he said he thought he was the

student he saw from time to time at school also wearing a trench
coat. He said that student was tall. He does not know anything
about that stu"'ent. (His mother thought that was the student that
she also saw at times while dropping off or picking up Josh at
school. )

• He thought this student also played cards during lunch period

last year. He said this student played cards at table WW (referring
to the diagram). He said he noticed that the card games we~e
"Dungeons and Dragons" and "Nuclear War."

• When asked, he did not know any other trench coat student or

see any duffle bags.

• He remembered wearing is white t-shirt, hiking pants, and black

sa.~dalsto school the day of the shooting.

• On the day of the shooting, he had French class for 4th hour.
When the class was over at 11:10 a.m. he walked to the cafeteria and
to his lunch table. Looking at the diagram, he thought the table he
went to was Q or X. The backpack list showed his backpack being at
table X.

• Once he went to the table, he dropped off his backpack and went
to the second lunch line from the east. He had walked from his
class to the lunch line with Mark Radtke. After getting lunch, he
went back to table X.

• He said he was at t.hat table with Joe Tran. Dan Yeager, Zach
Thompson, Scott Streeb, and possibly Pat Rybal.

• He said that he was about 5 minutes into lunch when students in

the cafeteria started getting down under their tables. He heard
student.s talking about something going off in the parking lot. He
got down under his table.

• He then saw Mr. Sanders and a janitor running in the cafeteria.

He thought the situation was a senior prank. He heard yelling for
everyone to get down. He said that a few students got up but were
yelled at again to get down.

• He had not heard anything up to this time. He said that

everyone from the cafeteria then began to run out and up the stairs.
He ran up the stairs and once he got to the top, everyone began to
slow down. He then heard 4 or S shots that he thought carne from the
cafeteria below and to the west.

:I JC.o01- 003222
• He turned left at the stairs and ran out the school via the
east doors for that hallway. He did not hear any other shots or

* He ran to' Leawood park. and to another student· s home. !le

thought the total time from when the students started to get under
tables to the time that he ran out of the schOOl was about .2 minutes.

This concluded my interview with Joshua Halder.

Date: 5/17/99 FBI #, 174A-DN-57419
CONTROL NUMBER: 2757 Inveatigator: VQndenkamp

On 5/17/99 I interviewed 17 year old CHS student Krista Hanley at her

home in Littleton, cc , Krista's mother was present during this

Krista was inside the ellS cafeteria on 4/20/99 when the shootings
began. She stated she had left Ms Haringls history class around
11:1sam and walked with Lydia Perry, arriving at the cafeteria a few
minute1s later. I showed Krista a drawing of the cafeteria with the
tables depicted in this drawing. I pointed out specific areas of the
cafeteria such as the west windows and kitchen to give her a better
understanding of the drawing's lay-out. Krista looked at the
drawing, and recalled that she and Lydia stopped at table QQ.
Sitting at table QQ were Nicole Markham, Jessica Brown and Alex
Marsh. She believed that Patrick Leiker came by the table, but she
could recall if he sat down. Krista stated she sat down facing the
west at table QQ for a few minutes, waiting for less people in the
serving line.

Krista stated she did not see any large duffle bags anywhere in the
cafeteria, nor did she see anyone carrying a large duffle bag

She stated that she, Lydia and Nicole got up from the table to
purchase a lunch. She believes this was about 11:25am. Krista
recalled walking to the east window in the serving line. While in
line, she recognized Chris Markham's voice yell "get down". She
believed Chris Markham came in from the door by table WW in the

JC-001· 003233
northwest corner, but was not sure. Krista, Lydia and Nicole all got
on the floor. She looked towards the west and heard a loud "boom'' r

then saw smoke outside. She does not recall hearing any gunfire type
noises prior to this. Krista did not see anyone carry:lng, or
shooting a weapon.

Krista stated that she, Lydia and Nicole ran around the corner
towards the auditorium doors. They waited a few seconds outside the
audatorium doors near the elevators. Alex Marsh said that she saw
Dylan Klebold shooting a gun. Krista recalled she did not believe
it. Krista stated tr~t around this time, she can not remember where,
or how she got out of the building. Her friends, Nicole and Lydia
have explained to her the following information. The three girls,
along with about 20 other students went into the auditorium, ran
through it and exited out into the north hallway upstairs. They
continued out passed the counselor! s area and exited out of the
building behind the gymnasium. Outside they had to jump over a high
fence, which Zach Heckler helped her over. She recalled, she did not
"freeze up", and was definitely running. She just could not recall
details of her exit out of the building. Krista's mother stated that
Krista has been attending therapy to help her with this trauma. Her
therapist advised them that «memory lapses ff such as these under these
circumstance are not unusual.

Krista s t at.ed she has no memory of seeing any gunman after leaving
the cafeteria. She stated that her girlfriends have told her that
they did not encounter anyone carrying a gun upst.airs, or outside
when t.hey exited. When they exited the building, they ~an to Clemont
park. then onto the Hop'S restaurant an Bowles to make phone calls.
She recalled that her boyfriend, Eric Jackson was now with them. She
called her mother, who is a teacher at Ken Carle middle school. Her
mother confirmed she received a call from Krista around 12:00 noon.

Krista stated that Eric JaCKson'S father picked up the kids from Hops
and drove them to Nicole Markham's house on S. Pierce Ct. Nicole's
house was locked, so Nicole's neighbor offered ill telephone to the
kids. Krista had promised her mother she would call a second time

JC..o01. 003234
when she got to Nicole\s home. She went inside to calli and when she
came out, Chris Morris had arrived at Nicole's house with his friend
Cory Freeson. They had arrived together in Cory's small blue Or grey
pick-up truck. She believed the time was about 12:2Cpm. Chris
Morris is Nicole's boyfriend, and was hugging Nicole outside her
home , Chris was wearing black army pants, a black "e out.hpar-k"
t-shirt. and "probably" his black beret which he frequently Wears.
Krista did not speak with Chris Morris, as she left with Eric Jackson
and his father.

Krista's mother stated that Detective Rick Griffith from CEI and
another Detective had called to speak with them a few days ago. They
were asking questions about Kristals involvement with the TCM r as she
had been identified as an associate of this group.

I asked Krista about her contact with the TCM. She stated that last
school year she began hanging out with Nicole Markham and Chris
Morris. They would go midnight bowling and watch movies. A couple
of the boys in this group began wearing t r-enchcoa t s and the term
trechcoat mafia was started. She stated that ather students gave
them this name. They all thought the name was cool, because it set
them apart from other stul:ients. Krista stated she did not wear a
trenchcoat. Krista took a picture of the group, and gave it to the
school yearbook ccmmittee to have it printed in the yearbook. All
pictures submitted like these, required a narrative about the
picture. They decided to write trenchcoat mafia and a few words that
were printed. She stated that Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris began
hanging out with the group sometime after the picture was taken.
Eric and Dylan were close with Nate Dykeman, but never gave any
indicaticn they were so angry at the school. Krista said she knew
nothing about any plans or the intentions Eric Harris and Dylan

Krista asked me why so much attention was given to prom night. She
stated that during "after prom" it "'as very difficult to get in and
out of the school because of the amount of teachers and parents
there. The staff would not allow any backpacks or bags inside the

JC-001· 003235
school, for fear of alcohol. Krista stated she went to prom with
Eric Jackson and they were with Chris Morris and Nicole Markham. She
said she was with them the entire night and at no time did Chris or
Eric leave the party. Krista indicated that she read in the media
that some kids may have brought "bombs" into the school on prom
night. She recalled that Dylan Klebold, Robin Anderson, Nate Dykeman,
his date and Eric Harris left the after pram party between 2 and 3am.
Krista stayed with Eric Jackson, Nicole and Chris Morris until around
Sam, when they left to go eat.

I asked Krista if there was anything else she could tell me about the
kids in the TO!. She advised me that her friend Nicole and Chris
Marris are still dating. She stated that mast eRS students are not
aware of thier relationship, so Nicole has n ~ b l e m s with
other students, Krista is aware that .............., ~s under
investigation regarding this incident, and stated t h a t " has
always left the eRS campus during his free 4th hour. He has done
this most of the school year.

interview. Jill agreed to speak with me about the shootings at
Columbine High Sohool on 4/20/99.

Jill stated she is an "A' lunch student, and had arrived at the CHS
cafeteria on 4/20/99 around 11 .z csm. She went to a table and sat
with Brandy Wiseman, Tasha Olson, Jamie and Tiffaney (last names
unknown I . Jill recalled she sat down facing the west windows. I
provided J~ll a drawing of the cafeteria which depicted the tables
and their locations in the cafeteria. I pointed out areas such as
food line and west windows to give Jill a better understanding of the
drawing's layout. She looked at the drawing and believed she and
her friends were sitting at either table AAA or ZZ. She circled both
tables on the drawing.

Jill recalled that she had just arrived at the table, when she heard
Mr Sanders yell "get down". She also heard someone say there was a
gun. She then heard noises, which she believed were gunfire earning
from the West. She got under the table and was looking towards the
west, out the windows. She saw a person wearing a long black coat,
carrying what looked like a long barrel ~~. She described the gun
as dark in color with about a 12' barrel. The person was near the
northwest corner of the building, on the outside. She never saw this
person's face, as she only saw the back of the person, and the gun.
Jill could give no description, and was not sure of the height, or if
the person was wearing a hat. She believed he was earrying the gun

JC-001· 003239
in his right hand. She recalled this person was looking out towards
the parking lot,

Most of the students inside the cafeteria began to run for the inside
steps. She also got up and ran, and was towards the end of the pack.
As she ran, she heard mora gunfire and an explosion behind her. She
did not look back, and had no contact with any gunman. Jill turned
into the auditorium doors by the cafeteria restrooms, as some
students were running that way. She eontinued out through the
auditorium, into the main hallway, then out the building behind the
gymnasium. She did not. encounter any gunman upst.airs, but. did
continue to hear gunfire behind her. She did not know if those were
inside or outside, or how close.

She left t.he school and ran to Clement Park with several other
students. She was carrying her backpack, as she had no time to take
it off When she sat down. Jill stated she did not see any large
duffle bags inside the cafeteria on 4/20/99, Or any previous days.

~.r~~~. 06/02/1999
Laverne Helm, 3663 South Sheridan Boulevard #K4,
Denver, Colorado S0235, telephone (303l9S4-0460, a kitchen worker
at Columbine High School, was interviewed at her home by Special
Agent (SAl Ricky V. Wright regarding the incident that took place
on 04/20/1999 at Columbine High School. After being advised as
to the identity of the interviewing agent and the nature of the
interview, Helm provided the following information:
Helm has been working as a kitchen worker at Columbine
High School for the last two years. Hel~s duties include
cooking, cleaning, and serving. Helm normally works from 7: 30 am
to 1:.30 pm. On the day of the shooting, Helm a=ived at work at
approximately 7: 30 am and served breakfast until 9: 30 am in the
breakfast serving line. Helm did not recall seeing anyone bring
in any large duffle bags that morning. Helm advised that the
janitors have the responsibility of cleaning up in the commons
area, but Helm thought it unlikely that any duffle bags or
backpacks were in the commons area before the students Came in
first period. Helm had read in the newspaper that there was a
bomb in the kitchen area. Helm did not believe that any large
duffle bags could have been in the kitchen area, because of the
traffic from the kitchen workers.
During lunch, Helm was serving lunch in the easternmost
lunch line. Helm first became aware that something was going on,
when she heard squeals and saw students running and climbing
under tables. SOmeone yelled for everyone to get down because
there was shooting. Some students ran behind the luncb lines.
Helm and other members of the kitchen staff took COVer in the
laundry room located at the back of the kitchen area. Helm later
learned that other students and members of the staff hid in the
neighboring office. Helm advised that there were 18 individuals
in her room, including teachers, students, and kitchen workers.
Among the kitchen workers were Linda Last Name unknown(LNUl,
Marlene Netterman(phoneticl, and Sue LNU.
The laundry room door is a heavy door and locked
automatically. The laundry room is quite small and was very
crowded. Helm and the others were in the room for approximately
two hours and 20 minutes until a SWAT team came and rescued them.
About 30 minutes after the shooting started, Helm heard voices

outside the door. Someone outside the room tried the door knob.
but it was locked. Someone then knocked on the door and said to
open the door because they knew there were people in the room.
No one moved or answered the people outside the room. Helm could
not distinguish how many individuals were outside the room.
Approximately 30 minutes later, the same people came back and
demanded the door be opened again. They did not shoot through
the door and did not try to break down the door.
While Helm was in there, she could hear shots and
occasional explosions. At one tillle, Helm heard one explosion
which was louder than the rest. Helm still thought she heard
shots until about ten minutes before she was rescued by the SWAT

On 081799 I telephonically interviewed Lavern Helms, a food services

worker at Columbine High School. Lavern told me that she was at school on
April 20tb 1999. She was workingin the Italianline cash register when the
shooting began. She heard a "pop, pop". She thought it was a prank. She
soon realized there was shooting going on in the school. She went into the
laundry room near the kitchen and hid for three hours. She said that she was
in the laundry room with eighteen others.
She had served Harris and Klebold in the cafeteriabefore. She only knew
them because she had seen them frequent the cafeteria.
During the shooting incident she heard voices knock on the door she was
hiding behind and said, .. We know you are in there, come out." She did not
know who was saying this. She reported to seeing none of the incident only
hearing it.
