Timeline Z- The Daddy of All Timelines (2012-)

Postby dmac » Mon Nov 05, 2012 8:42 am

A project being worked on for the last several months- somewhat sidetracked by the explosion of my computer- is known as Timeline Z, meant to be the Ultimate Keddie Murders Timeline. Unlike PCSO versions and others offered up over the years, this timeline is compiled directly from all the documents and sources at our disposal, quoting directly whenever possible. Previous timelines are rife with misquotes and faulty conclusions, but now the sources are clear and direct. Each entry is credited to the sources (for instance, <Sheila Sharp to PCSO Det. Brubaker>) and is cross-referenced by a footnote corresponding to the source document. Documents listed in the footnotes section will also link directly to the documents. The footnote code is also dead simple:

If the code is "0af", 0=1980, 'a' means the first month (January), and 'f' means the 5th document, chronologically listed, from that time. 1dz would mean the 26th known document from April of 1981.

With a minimum of redaction and a maximum of cross-referencing and direct sourcing, here is Timeline Z in it's current state of progress- roughly 15% complete (24 article done, about 150 to go). Even in this rudimentary form, it's still got enough clear, untainted info to dispel many misconceptions and turn many beliefs/theories on their ears.

The source page-- far easier to read and with links to documents-- is always found here:

The vehicle had a flat tire so Karl stopped to help them. Two people were inside and they well-dressed so he changed the tire as he was dressed in his "grubbies."

Seabolt said he thought UNSUB lived across the river near the footbridge. UNSUB had been w/ Martin Smartt in Keddie a few days before the murders. He has not seen UNSUB very often since Davis moved out, and not at all for the last two or three weeks. Seabolt also told of a guy in # 7, name unk [Roy Lopez?], who works for the railroad and drives a '79-'80 Toyota truck who has not been around for a couple of weeks. (1eo) <J Seabolt to Bradley/???>

    810519-????z Trisha D. Pettis had dated Dana for about two weeks last September, but she didn't know if he was involved with drugs. She never knew Dana to get into fights. She said Philip used to come to her house and she did not like him. Phillip could be mean when he was drunk which was most of the time. Phillip did not like Dana because Dana was dating her. Trisha said rumors were Tina hated her mom. (1ep) <Trisha Davis and Joey Carvalho to unk>

    810522-1915z Tom Curnow is interviewed under hypnosis by Sheriff Thomas. His recall was more vivid, giving a very clear description of the subjects, the long-haired one more so than the short-haired one. The long-haired one was the leader and the other was like his shadow. Out of hypnosis, he changed some of the features of the long-haired guy's composite. (1eq) <Curnow to unk PCSO & Thomas>

    810522-1926z Curnow hypnosis descriptions of two UNSUBs: SUB 1: Looks Mexican; 5'10"; glasses; 25-30 yo; slender; dark mustache, black hair greased and combed straight back; blue-jeans jacket and bell-bottom jeans; thick-soled boots; sliver belt buckle; dirty. SUB 2: Brown or blond hair, greasy, combed behind ears; silver ring in left ear, green army jacket; black boots; reflective glasses; white tank-top shirt; baggy dirty blue jeans; no belt; smoking. (1eq) <Curnow to unk PCSO & Thomas>

    810524-2240z Susanville PD respond to R/P abt David AKA Michael, OR his brother, who looks like one of the composites. R/O takes photos, fingerprints, and two sets of footprints of subject.1er <Susanville PD to Forcino>

    810528-????z Terry Alger knows Martin Smartt and another guy did the 187z, as they were Vietnam vets & always talking about killing someone. When asked if he was telling people how the 187s were done, he said because of a big dope deal & someone was at the wrong place. Asked how he knew this he became evasive & said he couldn't tell me now. Asked if he ever said a guy named Ted was talking in his sleep, he didn't remember. He said Pat and Joe Amormino, who manage the Meadow Valley Inn, knew things and weren't talking as they were scared. Gary Emary knows something. Gary is camped in the Meadow Valley area & drives a white International stepside. Terry overheard Pat and Joe on the phone on a few occasions and something was said about the middle fork of the Feather River and he thinks the Marty and the other killer may be hiding there. Terry also heard Oregon mentioned. Pat and Joe had photos of the two men. (1es) <Alger to PCSO>

    810529-0338z Terry Alger reported being shot at while hitchhiking on Meadow Valley Road. (1es) <Alger to PCSO>

    810529-????z Mike Bowers drops composite off to Stoy, who forwards it to Forcino. Bowers says the left composite is Marty Smartt, and the right is John Sessions or Dale Wade Meeks. (1et) <Bowers to Stoy to Forcino>

Re: Timeline Z- The Daddy of All Timelines

Postby dmac » Sat Jan 10, 2015 3:30 pm

Keep an eye out, I've been adding more documents to Timeline Z in the past couple days. The trouble is I can't outline in red all the new stuff, that's more trouble than it worth. And I can't ask everyone to review such a huge document to hopefully stumble across the new bits.

I've realized a very simple answer, and I will implement it the next time I update Timeline Z- which will be very soon. Here's the idea, tell me if it works: In Timeline Z, all the documents are already quoted and footnoted for sources, times, etc, and each quoted document is footnoted and tabled at the very bottom. As in:

    7?????-????z Marty was a cook in Viet Nam. He spent four months in the "brigg," something to do with the commander's daughter and drugs. (1du) <Marilyn Smartt to Crim/???>

    1du 810421 Interview between Crim and Marilyn Smartt <Marilyn Smartt to Crim/???>

So, from here on, I will add each document to the normal footnote table, yet also create a new table at the bottom duplicating the new documents included in the update. As in, if u see a new document in the table at the bottom called 1zz, you can search the post for 1zz and find every time that document has been added to the Big Z. I think it's a flawless answer. Please find ways to improve it and tell me here.

Re: Timeline Z- The Daddy of All Timelines

Postby dmac » Tue May 19, 2015 10:36 am

I've been working (re-working, actually) Timeline Z for some weeks now, improving the annotation system and going through files already processed and included on the timeline. I blasted through so many documents very quickly when first working on Project Z that I think it's important to revisit each entry. I'm checking for errors, seeing if entries can be improved, and making certain all documents are squeezed for worthwhile info (rarely facts, but 'accounts' by LE and others).

I also now believe it's terribly important timestamps from the documents themselves be given independent entries on Z. The perfect example is PCSO Shaver's crime scene report, where he does a fairly decent timeline of when he spoke to witnesses, neighbors, survivors. Each time he spoke to a witness MUST be placed on the timeline... it didn't occur to me at the time, but it's clear as a bell one of the most important aspects of the case is WHO SAID WHAT WHEN. Before, I figured anyone could look at the footnote and read the report to see details about who said what & when, but as Z is about putting the most info in one place succinctly, finding on Timeline Z and finding specifically when Jamie admitted he went inside 28 after pulling the boys from the window is very important- particularly considering he's denied it ever since.

Z is still being worked, but I thought an update is needed, explaining why a promised, updated version hasn't yet surfaced. Plus I've still got 20 other things going on 10 other burners.

I saw your new thread and it led me back here. Are you reworking this? I'm re- reading it regardless. If my memory gets worse I'll be throwing my own surprise parties!

Ps
Is it my ignorance of technology or is the owl site down? If so do you have a doc thread? I would offer to help but fear I'd cause more frustration than help when attempting to compile and start a thread!

Yes, the 3owl site went down shortly after I posted that link. However, the Timeline Z version from that era is live on the main site, here. In the long run, the OP on this thread is the best version, as it's the one I regularly update.
