SUPERIOR COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA CRIMINAL DIVISION UNITED STATES VS. RODNEY MC INTYRE As mentioned above, W-1 reported that she spoke with the decedent by phone on Friday morning, November 26, 2010. Your Affiant examined the decedent's cell phone records and confirmed that two phone calls were made between these two phones: the first at approximately 11:43 a.m., and the second at 11:53 a.m. Homicide detectives located and interviewed W-3. W-3 stated IT had daily cell phone conversations with the decedent prior to and on the day of Friday, November 26, 2010. Your Affiant examined the decedent's cell phone records. The examination confirmed W-3's information and revealed the decedent called W-3 on Friday, November 26, 2010, at approximately 12:04 p.m. This is the last contact detectives have been able to confirm between the decedent and any other person. W-2 stated that on Saturday, November 27, 2010, at approximately 08:10 a.m., IT received several texts on ITs' cell phone, (XXX) XXX-7745, from the decedent's cell phone. The texts inquired if the decedent's mother was upset about the decedent not coming home on Friday, November 26, 2010. W-2 stated the decedent has never texted with W-2 prior to Saturday, November 27, 2010. W-2 also stated an unknown male called W-2's cell phone from the decedent's cell phone stating the decedent was running away from home. Your affiant has reviewed W-2's cell phone records, which confirm the existence of the Saturday, November 27, 2010, text messages and cell phone calls. Moreover, W-2 is listed in the decedent's cell phone by a family-known name, making it appear that the individual sending these texts and making this call had to have had personal knowledge about the decedent's family and associates. The events and acts described above occurred primarily in the District of Columbia and were committed as described by defendant(s) listed in the case caption.

SUPERIOR COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA CRIMINAL DIVISION UNITED STATES VS. RODNEY MC INTYRE On Sunday, November 28, 2010, at approximately 8:46 a.m., W-1 received a text message from the decedent's cell phone stating, "Remember.the.bitch.told.on.my.man.now. yoo.get.her.out.the.trash." Finally, a review of the cell cite data for the decedent’s phone shows no instance – after the last confirmed contact with W-3 at 12:04 p.m. on November 26, 2010 – in which the decedent’s phone utilized cell towers outside of the District of Columbia. First Interview with the Decedent's Father, Rodney Mc Intyre: On Friday, December 3, 2010, your Affiant interviewed Rodney Mc Intyre. Mr. Mc Intyre initially stated that he and W-1 (the decedent's mother) agreed he would meet the decedent on Friday, November 26, 2010, to give the decedent her Christmas gifts. During the conversation, Mr. Mc Intyre stated that he and the decedent's mother had a disagreement because he did not understand why the decedent had to go back home and complete her chores. Mr. Mc Intyre also stated that he told W-1 that the decedent was not, in fact, going to spend the weekend with him. He informed W-1 that the decedent was actually planning to spend the weekend with her boyfriend. During this first interview, Mr. Mc Intyre also stated he spoke with the decedent on Friday, November 26, 2010, around noon time. Mr. Mc Intyre said he told the decedent to meet him at 1:00 p.m. in front of the Target Department store located in the 3100 block of 14th Street, Northwest. Mr. Mc Intyre stated that the decedent was supposed to call him on his cell phone when she was ready. Although the two were to meet at 1:00 p.m., Mr. Mc Intyre stated he never went to meet the decedent at Target because the decedent never called him. Instead, Mr. Mc Intyre stated that he remained at 3327 Brothers Place, Southeast, and did not go to the Northwest section of D.C. until Sunday. The events and acts described above occurred primarily in the District of Columbia and were committed as described by defendant(s) listed in the case caption.

SUPERIOR COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA CRIMINAL DIVISION UNITED STATES VS. RODNEY MC INTYRE Follow-Up Investigation With Other Witnesses: Your Affiant spoke again with W-1 after interviewing Mr. Mc Intyre. W-1 stated that IT and Mr. Mc Intyre never had a conversation about the decedent spending the weekend with her boyfriend. W-1 reiterated that the agreement was that the decedent was to meet with Rodney Mc Intyre after doing a lady's hair. The decedent was to get her Christmas gifts and meet back with W-2 in the 3500 block of Georgia Avenue, Northwest, to come home and do her chores. After the decedent completed her chores, W-1 and W-2 were to take the decedent to meet Rodney Mc Intyre, where the decedent was to stay the weekend. Detectives also located and interviewed another witness, hereafter referred to as W-4. W-4 stated that IT had a conversation with Rodney Mc Intyre on or about November 27, 2010, after the decedent was reported missing. IT stated that Mr. Mc Intyre told it that the decedent had told him she was coming "Uptown" (referring to the Northwest area of Washington, D.C.) to do a lady's hair but the lady changed her mind. According to W-4, Mr. Mc Intyre told the decedent to stay home and not to come "Uptown". Detectives located and interviewed another witness, hereafter referred to as W-5. W-5 stated that IT had a conversation with Rodney Mc Intyre on or about November 26, 2010, after the decedent was reported missing. W-5 stated that Mr. Mc Intyre told IT he received a phone call from the decedent. The decedent told Mr. Mc Intyre that she had told W-1 (her mother) that she was going to spend the weekend with him. According to his report to W-5, Mr. Mc Intyre told the decedent not to lie to her mother. Mr. Mc Intyre indicated to W-5 that he had no plans to meet with the decedent for the weekend.

SUPERIOR COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA CRIMINAL DIVISION UNITED STATES VS. RODNEY MC INTYRE W-5 additionally stated Mr. Mc Intyre reported that he and the decedent used to argue all the time. W-5 recalled a conversation IT had with Mr. Mc Intyre about a previous argument between the decedent and Mr. Mc Intyre. Mr. Mc Intyre told W-5 that, during a phone conversation with the decedent, he inquired about rumors of a sexual relationship between W-2 and the decedent. Mr. Mc Intyre stated the decedent retorted, "You are just upset because you aren't getting it." Mr. Mc Intyre then explained to W-5 that because of the decedent's physical development, the decedent could get any man she wanted. As stated above, detectives also interviewed W-3, who reported that the decedent had made plans to spend the weekend together with IT. According to W-3, IT last spoke to the decedent on Friday, November 26, 2010, at approximately 12:04 p.m. W-3 stated that IT did not see the decedent that weekend at all. A review of W-3's call detail records confirms this report, and a review of W-3's cell site records establishes that IT was nowhere near the location where the body was found during the period between Friday, November 26, 2010, and Monday, November 29, 2010. Detectives located and interviewed W-6. W-6 stated that a few days prior to November 26, 2010, Mr. Mc Intyre and IT were together outside in the 2500 block of 11th Street, N.W., when they saw the decedent and engaged in a brief conversation. W-6 noted in a more recent conversation with Mr. Mc Intyre, that Mr. Mc Intyre asked W-6 not to tell detectives that IT saw him (Mr. Mc Intyre) with the decedent days prior to November 26, 2010. Mr. Mc Intyre also told W-6 not to tell detectives that the decedent previously resided with him.

W-7 reported that Mr. McIntyre had access to the gym because he had his own set of keys. W-7 further reported that Mr. Mc Intyre returned his keys to W-7 on December 8, 2010. Rodney Mc Intyre's Cell Phone Records: During his initial interview, Mr. Mc Intyre provided your Affiant with two cell phone numbers: (202) 361-2424 and (202) 534-5925. Mr. Mc Intyre stated that he had lost the (202) 534-5925 cell phone in late October, and that he did not have access to the phone until he received the replacement phone late in the evening on Saturday, November 27, 2010. Contact Between the Decendent and Rodney Mc Intyre on November 26, 2010 until 12:25 p.m.: Your Affiant and Federal Law Enforcement Forensic Electronic Analysis examined Mr. Mc Intyre's and the decedent's cell phone records. The examination for his cell phone numbered (202) 361-2424 revealed daily contact between Mr. Mc Intyre and the decedent prior to and on Friday, November 26, 2010. Specifically, the examination revealed that on Friday, November 26, 2010, the decedent called Mr. Mc Intyre three times on the phone numbered (202) 361-2424. The first call was at 08:41 a.m. between the decedent and Mr. Mc Intyre. The third call was placed at 10:57 a.m. Your affiant also examined the cell site data for Mr. Mc Intyre’s phone, which indicates that the phone was hitting off or cell towers in the the Northwest area, just south of the 3500 block of Georgia Avenue, Northwest, until at least 8:48 a.m.

SUPERIOR COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA CRIMINAL DIVISION UNITED STATES VS. RODNEY MC INTYRE Your affiant also examined cell site data for the decedent's phone during this time frame. That data indicates that her cell phone was also in the Northwest area. Moreover the cell site data shows that during the third phone call between Mr. Mc Intyre and the decedent, made at 10:57 a.m., both cell phones are hitting off of the same tower - in the Columbia Heights area -- while they are communicating. A forensic examination of the decedent's cell phone and cell site transmissions on Friday, November 26, 2010, between 10:57 a.m. and 12:04 p.m. show that all calls made by her began and terminated in the Columbia Heights area, hitting off of the same cell tower as the defendant's 10:57 a.m.call. Thereafter, the decedent's cell phone and cell site data transmissions terminated in the Columbia Heights area. The cell tower in the Columbia Heights area utilized by the both Mr. Mc Intyre’s phone and the decedent’s phone were made in close proximity to where the decedent's body was found and Keely's Boxing Gym, where Mr. Mc Intyre worked, which is less than a block away.

The last transmission from the decedent's phone was made on Saturday, November 27, 2010, at approximately 6:06 p.m., in close proximity to 3327 Brother's Place, Southeast. Additionally, on Friday, November 26, 2010, at approximately 2:51 p.m., Mr. Mc Intyre's cell phone, numbered (202) 361-2424, began transmitting data again. All of the cell site data transmissions were in the Southeast area of Washington, D.C., in close proximity to 3327 Brothers Place, Southeast. Mr. Mc Intyre stated he was staying at 3327 Brother Place, Southeast, from Wednesday, November 22, 2010 until December 1, 2010. The decedent's cell phone has not been recovered. Forensic Examination of Mr. Mc Intyre's Second Cell Phone: The same forensic examination was done for Mr. Mc Intyre's second phone, numbered (202) 534-5925. Despite his claim that it was lost until late on Saturday, November 27, 2010, the records revealed daily contact with the decedent prior to Friday, November 26, 2010. Further investigation revealed Sprint Nextel Corporation records indicate the cell phone number (202) 534-5925 was transferred to a new cell phone on Saturday, November 27, 2010, and the cell phone number (202) 534-5925 had daily transmission (voice and text usage) from November 1, 2010 until November 27, 2010. The forensic analysis for this second phone also revealed that on Saturday, November 27, 2010, between 2:47 p.m. and 4:28 p.m. (approximately 2 hours), Mr. Mc Intyre's cell phone is in close proximity to where the decedent's body was located. However, Mr. Mc Intyre denied being in Northwest on Saturday, November 27, 2010. Mr. Mc Intyre states he was at 3327 Brother Place, Southeast, the entire day.

CRIMINAL DIVISION UNITED STATES VS. RODNEY MC INTYRE Subsequent Pre-Arrest Interview with the Decedent's Father, Rodney Mc Intyre: On Sunday, January 30, 2011, your Affiant executed a District of Columbia search warrant for Mr. Mc Intyre's DNA. Once in the police vehicle after being advised of the search warrant, Mr. Mc Intyre made a phone call to an unknown person and stated, "I shouldn't have met him." Thereafter, your Affiant interviewed Mr. Mc Intyre. Mr. Mc Intyre confirmed that on Friday, November 26, 2010, that he was using the (202) 361-2424 cell phone to communicate with the decedent. Mr. Mc Intyre said he knew your Affiant had his cell phone records. Mr. Mc Intyre stated, "I don't care what my cell phone records say, I was in Southeast." During this same interview with Mr. Mc Intyre, detectives confronted Mr. Mc Intyre with rumors of him having a sexual relationship with the decedent. Mr. Mc Intyre was asked whether his DNA would be on the decedent. He replied, "I don't know how I would explain it." Mr. Mc Intyre said he would not admit to having sex with the decedent to your Affiant, however, he would admit it to the decedent's mother. Finally, contrary to the statement of W-7, Mr. Mc Intyre reported that he had returned the keys to Keely's Boxing Gym to W-7 before Thanksgiving. DNA Analysis of the Sex Kit from the Decedent The Metropolitan Police Department Crime Laboratory conducted a forensic examination on sex kit obtained from the decedent during the autopsy. The DNA examination identified only a single male DNA profile sample contained within the swabs taken from the decedent's vagina. The DNA profile obtained from RODNEY Mc INTYRE matched the single source male DNA profile obtained from the decedent's vagina. Based on information and belief, semen is typically eliminated from the human vagina of a live human being within 72 hours of sexual intercourse.

SUPERIOR COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA CRIMINAL DIVISION UNITED STATES VS. RODNEY MC INTYRE Post-Arrest Interview of Rodney Mc Intyre On May 21, 2011, Rodney Mc Intyre was arrested. Thereafter he was advised of his Miranda rights. After waiving his rights, Mr. Mc Intrye gave a lengthy videotaped statement to police. During the statement, Mr. Mc Intyre provided a number conflicting statements. • Mr. Mc Intyre initially stated that he last saw the decedent, together with W-6, on Tuesday, November 23, 2010, at Keely’s Boxing Gym. Mr. Mc Intyre initially reported that he had provided the decedent with a bottle of his semen, which she was inserting into herself with a turkey baster in order to become pregnant. When confronted with the absurdity of this assertion, Mr. Mc Intyre admitted that he had sexual relations with the decedent on several occasions, most recently on Tuesday, November 23, 2010. Mr. Mc Intyre was informed that forensic testing had been completed, but was not told the results of the testing during the interview. He was asked whether there was any way possible that his DNA would be inside of the decedent. Mr. Mc Intyre responded that he knew that sperm did not stay inside of a woman’s body for more than 3 days, such that it would be impossible for his DNA to be present because their last sexual contact was on Tuesday, November 23, 2010.

SUPERIOR COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA CRIMINAL DIVISION UNITED STATES VS. RODNEY MC INTYRE Inconsistent Information Developed in the Course of the Investigation: On Tuesday, January 11, 2011 your Affiant interviewed a subject that was under arrest. The subject stated the decedent was stabbed inside of a location in upper Northwest area of Washington, D.C. and identified a truck to the detectives that the decedent's body was placed inside of after the murder. The subject provided a name of a 16-year-old suspect. Your Affiant went to location an obtained consent to search the location.

SUPERIOR COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA CRIMINAL DIVISION UNITED STATES VS. RODNEY MC INTYRE • • • The decedent met with Rodney Mc Intyre. During that meeting, there was vaginal sexual contact between the decedent and her biological father, Rodney Mc Intyre. Although the decedent was supposed to meet W-2 in the 3500 block of Georgia Avenue, N.W., to return home to Prince George's County, Maryland, the decedent did not do so. No further communications were received that can be conclusively identified as having come from the decedent after 12:04 p.m. on November 26, 2010. From 12:04 p.m. to 2:51 p.m., no cell site information is available for either the decedent's phone or Mr. Mc Intyre's (202) 361-2424 phone. Thereafter, both the decedent's phone and Mr. Mc Intyre's (202) 361-2424 began transmitting data again. All of the cell site data transmissions were in the Southeast area of Washington, D.C., in close proximity to 3327 Brothers Place, Southeast; Mr. Mc Intyre stated he was staying at 3327 Brothers Place, Southeast, from Wednesday, November 22, 2010 until December 1, 2010; On Monday, November 29, 2010, at approximately 1:08 p.m., the decedent was found in a trashcan outside of 1030 Fairmont Street, N.W. Between 12:04 p.m. and the time the body was found, several communications were sent from the decedent’s phone to her family and friends that could have only been sent by someone with close familiarity to the decedent and her family. All indications are that the decedent’s cell phone never left the District of Columbia during this period. The location where the body was found is less than a block from Mr. Mc Intyre's place of employment.

SUPERIOR COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA CRIMINAL DIVISION UNITED STATES VS. RODNEY MC INTYRE On Tuesday, November 30, 2010, personnel from the OCME performed an autopsy on the decedent's remains. Medical staff also completed a sex kit. The cause of death for the decedent was ruled multiple stab wounds. The manner of death was ruled HOMICIDE. The sex kit was submitted to the MPD forensic laboratory. The DNA examination identified only a single male DNA profile present in the decedent's vagina. The DNA examination identified Mr. Mc Intyre's sperm as the single male DNA profile present in the sample collected from the decedent's vagina.

Finally, during multiple interviews, Mr. Mc Intyre has provided multiple contradictory statements to police, as detailed above, that have served to interfere with and obstruct the Metropolitan Police Department’s investigation into the murder of Ebony Franklin.

The events and acts described above occurred primarily in the District of Columbia and were committed as described by defendant(s) listed in the case caption. Subscribed and sworn before me this 23 day of May, 2011
