Phone: 303 972 0657
Student: Columbine High School

INVESTIGATION:

I telephonically interviewed the above listed witness on 081199. Kirk


reportedthat he has not been interviewed by police regarding the Columbine
High School shooting prior to this date.

Kirk was at school on 042099 and in Mr. Andres Choirclass. A student,


Brandon Reisbeck ran into the choir room and told Mr. Andres that
somebody was shooting in the school. Kirklooked out in the halls and heard
what he thought was shooting and saw students running crazily in the halls.
After he heard the shots, he ran out of the auditorium and ran out of the
school near to where the post graduate area is. Kirk ran to Clement Park.
He remembers running out of the school between 1115 and 1120hours. He
reported hearing the fire alarm going off as he left the school.
Prior to exiting the school he recalled looking out into the hall from the
auditorium and seeing a student with a gun. He said the person with the gun
was at the top of the stairs hear the SE hall. He saw a flash from what he
thought was a shotgun. He told me he could not identify the person with the
gun. He said that he was running away and did not have a good line of sight
at the suspected shooter.
Kirk reported to having no prior knowledge of the shooting incident. He had
seen guys in trench coats on campus before throughout the school year and
knew that there were tensions between the jocks and the TCM.

JC-001- 005013
One JUly 4, 1998 Kirk had a run in with who he thought, was Harris. Harris
was waiving a shotgun at him because he threw a donut at Harris as he drove
by him in a car. This occurred at a 7-11 store located at Platte Canyon and
Coal Mine. Kirk told me that this incident was reported to the police. He
further alleged that he only thought it was Harris because he was a member
of the TCM.

LARSON was acquainted with HARRIS. He had previouslyhad a Philosophy class, and three
years of German classes with HARRIS. He did not particularlycare for HARRIS, whom he

LARSON recalledthat occasionally, in his freshman year, he used to eat lunc


with KLEBOLD.

LARSON was a singer in a band which Brooks BROWN also was a member of. The band fell
apart in about January 1999, because none of the membershad time to practice. LARSON

DispQsitioo:

SUBJECT: Salli A. MELFI


DOB: 09/14/82
4161 S. Vrain S1.
Denver,CO 80236

MELFI was interviewed on June 15, 1999 by telephone from her residence, with the permission
of her mother, Karen MELFI.

MELFI acknowledged that she has already beeninterviewed, but I explained that I needed to get
some additional Information in regard to her conversation with Stephanie BRESSE at the
Columbine Library on Apri120, 1999 following the shootings.

MELFI remembered the conversation, and I asked her about her comment that someone she
knew had said the incident had been planned fora year. She said the person who told her that
was Alex MARSH.

According to MELFI, MARSH was in the same world literature class as MELFI during the first
semester of the 1998 -1999 school year. In that class, MARSH wasthe "boisterous" person in
the class. MELFI remembers that MARSH was made fun of a lot, because she would stand up in
class and speakher mind abouttopics thatwerebeing discussed, but that her statements would
evolve into"nonsense".

On the particular daythat MELFI was referring to, which she recalled was during the last part of
November or the first part of December, thepeople whowere teasing or making fun of MARSH
were jocks butMELFI said they weren't the onlyones who made fun of MARSH.

MELFI described MARSH as being "pretty tough", andthought MARSH didn't have many
friends, because she would see MARSH alone in the halls between classes. However, MELFI
said thepeople with whom MARSH did associate were members of the Trench CoatMafia. I
asked who those people were, and she gave me the names of Cbri~sten
TIiIEBAUtt, John SAVAGEand Pauline COLBY. I asked if _ _ •• as part of that

group, andshe said t,Shedescribed MARSH as associating more withthe "acting

askedi was partof MARSH's group, and MELFi said he was.

MELFI told me that shespoke toMARSH, and toldherthatsheadmired her forbeing willing 10
standup and speak OUI. MELFi recalls that MARSH toldher, "don't worry, they'regoingto
pay". MARSH went on, "I have a couple friends that are planning something". MARSH did not
tell MELFI who the friends were, or what was being planned. except that MARSH made a
comment to her that whatever it was had been planned for a year.

MELFi didn't say anything to anyone at the time because shedidn't takeMARSH seriously, but
when the shootings happened, MELFI remembered MARSH's statements. MELFI said there

the school: one male lyinS on the sround with a wound to his side
and one body, unknown whether male or female, laying at the tap of
the stairs. ~e~ther person was moving at the time and she was not

very ar~ious and distraught and told me that her sister Sarah
Olejniczak was also a student at columbine and had been in the
school building. Alicia did not know where Sarah was and asked me
if I had heard. I took her to the school counselors who were
standing by to assist the students and they told me they would take

On 05-07-99 at about 1000 hrs., this Investigator responded to 7769 W. Frost Dr. and
conducted an interview with:

OLEJNICZAK. ALICIA MARIE


DOB: 02·14-81
(303) 933-0376

Also present for the interview were her parents, identified as:

OLEJNICZAK. RICHARD LEE


DOB: 10-16-42
and
OLEJNICZAK. JANlCE ELLEN
DOB: 04-04-4{j

Alicia related she has not been interviewed before except briefly the day of the incident.
Alicia related she was in the choir room office. There were about 60 kids in there with no
teachers. In the choir room, the teacher is Mr. Leland Andres Sr.

Initially the class was joking around and they started warming up to sing. It became quiet
in the room. Brandon Reisbekeck, ran in and said there were people shooting downstairs.
They thought it was a senior prank. Then they heard some bombs.

Half the kids went out the doors, the other half stayed in the class. Alicia was later told
that the half which left, went into the auditorium, As they were attempting to leave, a
gunman came. The group went downstairs, then went out through the commons doors.

Since the incident, about 120 students have gotten together and talked about it. When
asked what happened in the room without a teacher, Alicia stated that a kid took charge.
She identified the person as:

FOSS, ADAM

Alicia said that Foss took control along with another kid identified as:

CARTUAIKI, ZAKE

Both subjects are seniors, While in the choir room, they were at the door watching. At
one point, they saw the barrel of a gun come around a comer. Alicia said she saw the
barrel of a gun. She does not remember what it looks like.

Alicia relates she did not see the gunman. When this occurred, she was shoved into the
choir office. Alicia indicates they heard shots, bombs ami screaming. At one point, a
custodian came in and told everyone to get down. She identified the custodianas Jay.

Alicia related thet Foss pushed filing cabinets up against the door. There was a phone in
the office and someone had a cell phone with them. Kids in the 0 ffice called their parents
and told them to can 911. The person with the cell phone was a senior, who was
identified as:

CURRY, KENDRA

This Investigator asked Alicia if she ever looked at a clock. She related there is not a
clock in the office. During some of the cans to the parents, they were telling the students
to turn off the lightsin the room and to push stuff in front of the door. So they used desks
and filing cabinets.

While in the room Alicia said it became hot and she wanted to know about her sister.
Alicia tried calling her parents. Foss tried to calm her down. At one point, Foss
backhanded Alicia because she was getting out ofcontrol. Alicia sat down and cried.

Finally the SWAT team came. The students openedthe door from the inside. They took
the students out ten by ten. When she looked at the clock it was 1525 brs. Alicia's
parents said she is on the video of the students leaving the school. Alicia is wearing a
yellow jacket. It took the SWAT teamabout 10 to 15 minutes to get them all out.

When they left, they went downstairs to the cafeteria. They went in front of the kitchen,
then out the side door. They went up the stairs, past the two guys that were dead. They
ended up in a little corner at the north west part ofthe building.

This Investigator asked Alicia when they first knew something was wrong. She indicated
Choir class is Sib hour. The class starts at l l lS hrs, At about 1130 brs. is when they
knew something was wrong.

Alicia never saw either person involved in the shooting. She only saw the gun barrel for a
few seconds. Alicia also related she never heard any names being used or any other
statements by the suspects.

This Investigator then interviewed Alicia's sister Sarah. After that interview was
completed, this Investigator asked Alicia the following questions during a second
interview. This interview was conducted at about lOSS hrs.

INVESTIGATOR BRICE MOGMAW

Alicia describedher back pack as Navy Blue,"Collection" Series. The back pack if Iilbric
with an emblem on the llap. The emblem is the letter "C". It is also not really a back
pack, it is described more as a purse. It is located in the chemistryroom. Contained in the
purse is a five star day timer. There are also lots of papers which have her name on them.
Her glasses are also in her purse.

In regardsto the shooters, Alicia related the following infurmation. She knew Eric Harris.
She had a class with him, Creative Writing. The teacher was Ms. Kelly. She said Harris
was really intelligent and always nice to her. They use to make fun ofthe teacher.

Alicia talked about a incident that happened severalmontbs ago, possiblyafter their spring
break, which was from 03-16- to 03-20. In Creative Writing, one of their papers, they
were to identiJY a character or object as a person.

In the paper written by Harris, his object was a bullet and his best friend was a shotgun.
They got into their discussion groups and they were to pick the best one. Alicia believes
that Harris read his paper to the class. She believes that possibly the paper was turned in.
These papers were written shortly after spring break. Alicia related everything Harris
wrote was reallydark.

In regards to the school announcements for the day, Alicia relates her second period is
Economics. She does not listen to the announcements. He sister, Sarah, stated there is
always a quote of the day. She possibly remembers something in the quote as this might
be a bad day.

Alicia asked this Investigator about Brooks Brown. She indicated she has known Brooks
for about two years. She indicated Brooks hung out with Dylan. Brooks did a lot of
plays and Dylan ran the sound board. Alicia related she hung out with Brooks last year all
of the time.

Alicia indicated Brooks told her last year someone was threatening him. Brooks did not
tell Alicia who it was. She said he was scared. Brooks did not know what he had done to
make someone mad.

This Investigator asked Aliciaif Brooks ever told her someone was setting off explosions
and she said no. Brooks brother Aaron told Alicia that Brooks knew somebody who was
making bombs. She does not remember the exact words. Brooks parents were concerned

Brandon Reisbeck, date of birth December 13, 1979, 6391
West Brittany Place, Littleton, Colorado, was telephonically
interviewed. After being advised of the identity of the
interviewing Agent and the nature of the interview, Reisbeck
furnished the following information:
Reisbeck is a Senior at Columbine High School. His
first period class and second period class are in the Ace
classroom. This is a joint class with Mr. Tucker and Miss Gomez.
First period runs from 7:30 a.m. to 8:20 a.m. Second period rJns
from 8:25 a.m. to 9:20 a.m. Second period is an'additional five
minutes to allow the schocl announcements tc be made. The
announcements are made on the Rebel News Network which is
broadcast over televisions within the classrooms. On April 20,
1999, Reisbeck did not watch the announcements. His third period
ciass is gym with Coach Place and Coach Lowry. This class runs
from 9:25 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. His fourth period class runs from
10:20 a.m. to 11:10 a.m. and is economics with Miss Kay. Fifth
period class runs from 11:15 a.m. to 12:05 p.m. This class is
choir and is held in the choir room with Mr. Andreas, Sr.
During fifth period on April 20, 1999, Reisbeck was in
chcir and the choir had just begun warming up. Students are
allowed to leave the choir rOom to get a drink of water at a
fountain located across the hall against a science room. At
approximately 11:20 to 11:25 a.m., Reisbeck went to get a drink
of water. Another student from h~s class, Julie Cole, was also
getting a drink of water from the fountain. Reisbeck, after
getting a drink of water, heard two sounds he thought were
gunshots. As he was walking back to the room students came
running up the stairs from the cafeteria. The students were
screaming 'he has a gun." Reisbeck stepped into the choir room
and yelled to the class "they're shooting and they have a gun."
Mr. Andreas told everyone to "sit down, sit down." Reisbeck
thought Mr. ~~dreas wanted to figure out what was happening
before letting the students go. Reisbeck did not sit down but
ran out cf the classroom and headed into the auditorium.
Numerous other kids from the choir room also ran into the
auditorium.

Within the auditorium were students from the choir
room, cafeteria and a class that was being held on the auditorium
stage. After getting in the auditorium he heard an explosion
that sounded like it came from behind the stage and appeared to
be downstairs in the commons. He then heard several gunshots
which sounded like they were also coming from behind the stage.
He does not specifically remember how many gunshots he heard. He
then ran to the north side of the auditorium exiting into the
main hallway. He looked left, or west, down the hallway and
could see that the fire doors were closed. He turned right and
went down the hallway and was told by Mr. Ken Holden, a
Counselor, to go down the hallway by the counselor's office. He
ran down that hallway and exited out the doors located on the
left side of that hallway and on the north side of the gymnasium.
He then ran to the 'smoker's pit' located near the tennis courts.
He then started jumping fences until he ran into Clement Park.
Reisbeck only heard gunshots and explosions and never
saw any gunmen.
Reisbeck has a black Jansport backpack that he left
under his seat in the choir room. The backpack contained books
and schoolwork. Also left under his seat was a North Carolina
baseball hat. Reisbeck does not have a locker and only uses his
backpack.
Reisbeck saw in the media a picture of the Trenchcoat
Mafia which included Bryan Sargent. Sargent is in Reisbeck's
first and fourth period classes. Reisbeck does not recall him
being in those classes on April 20, 1999. Brooks Brown is a
member of the fifth period choir class. Reisbeck does not
remember if Brown was in the choir class on APril 20, 1999.
