I was a member of the four-man technical team dispatched to Georgetown, Guyana, to assist in the investigation of the murder of Congressman Leo J. Ryan.

On Saturday, December 2, 1978, [name deleted] of the Guyana Police Photographic Laboratory and [name deleted] Police Department photographer, made available to me their 35mm black-and-white negatives of the Port Kaituma airstrip and the Jonestown crime scenes. With the assistance of [name deleted] and using the Guyanese facilities, I printed three photographic copies of each exposure. Upon completion of these I was furnished the role of 120 size black-and-white negatives of the scene at Lamaha Gardens in Georgetown, Guyana. This was the location at which Sharon Amos and her three children were murdered. I printed three copies of each of these negatives and then returned all of the original negatives to [names deleted].

On December 6, the Technical team was transported to Port Kaituma and Jonestown by two US Army helicopters. At Port Kaituma we conducted a crime scene search and I photographed bullet holes and physical damage done to the twin otter Guyanese airplane which at this time was being repaired. At Jonestown I took aerial photographs as well as overall scenes.
