I'm going to divide it down the center 'cause I got two almost identical layouts. I I sensed a building shaped like this with a corridor like that and there's a..uh..there's a 2 rooms there and a room over here, and there was like 6 in one room, 6 in another room, and 6 in another this house number 1. #14 Uh....were you actually in there?

I got almost like a barracks impression. You know like..uh..the old..uh..the large bay type areas of a barracks where you would have 3 beds down each wall of the bay and you go to the next bay and there would be 3 down each wall, and you go to the next bay and there would be 3 down each wall. I got that impression. I had the exact same .... now this may be the same exact house, you know, with a snap view both times, but I oot a feeli house, for some reason. Same corridor.

This is some kind of a auditorium.

I got an auditorium impression then instead-. completely different instead of a warehouse impression. I got the idea I was looking through a paper thin divider like thing on the left that zigzagged. Like this. This was a wall, and that this was a large area, t oms, like this, and Te , there were 6, like 7 people. There was like 13, 15 but, there were an equal amount of people in each on of these rooms.

Ok. I had the Marines and the other people in the small building and I couldn't find the woman ....that bothered me a little bit, so I deliberately went looking for woman or women that were hostages and I had, I assumed the third house....and the reason I think I did that... is I saw, I saw a short L shaped corridor, like this off of which was a kitchen, and then a room behind he kitchen is where I saw a woman. #14 Do you feel that you could identify this woman from a photograph? #19.5 Uh....I'm not sure. I could give it a try. #14 Ok. We'll try that later. #19.5 Ok. I might be able to. I'm not really sure.. And I'm assuming this is another house. I'll call this another house and I don't ...the..only.... like I say, the only reason I'm assuming this is another house is because of the kitchen. You know was a small tidy, neat little kitchen like you would find in a house. I also got the impression that..uh.. this, this woman has been in this place for quite some time. She hasn't been moved, ok. Saw a royal blue step van. The impression I was ooking at like this. Something like this. It wa ike a royal blue and was being used to move, move quipment, and..uh.. #14 Did you feel the equipment was being moved into the location or out of the location? #19.5 It was being moved across the compound and, ..:uh.. I would hesitate to say whether it was being newly brought into the compound or just being moved across the compound. At the time it's being moved I sensed its being moved across the compound.

But, I just, I just get this consolidation feeling like they're moving across the compound, for some reason. And, that was going towards the..uh.. what I call the auditorium building, type building. I guess that's all. #14 Yes. At that time we..uh..cooled down a little bit again, and moved (edited for security) You described the hostages being in a building with a glassed top. #19.5 Yes, just a big building with a glass top. I don't... that's what came to mind. #14 You described seeing many guards. Were these guards in the building or outside of the building? #19.5 They were in and out of the building. There were alot of them in the building, surprisingly. A great many more than I'd been associating to the buildings before. It's..uh..and had kind of siege atmosphere to it. You know, like maybe all the guards in the compound were in this building as well as all the hostages. #14 Ok. Did you have the feeling that all the hostages were in this building or were there.... #19.5 All but.... for some reason I..... there was 2 that I.. uh.. I felt like there was going to be 2 hostages they were going to be evacuated to a hospital. I don't think it's going to be for a violent reason. I think they are just going to be sent to a hospital. I don't understand that. I don't, I don't get a physically ill feeling about it. I don't think they are going to be physically ill or anything. I just get this sensa- tion that 2 are going to be moved to a hospital for some reason. I don't .... I can't expand on that. It was a very vague impression. #14 Did you have any feeling of how things were located? For example, in relation to the rest of the compound where this glass Lop building was located, if indeed it was located in the compound. #19.5 Noe can tell you the glass top building is loci in compound somewhere but I don't even get an impressi ti df`?-Gtiat- kind of building i is or ow it looks.

Surprisingly, it's ..uh..I feel like I couldn't.. .for some reason I couldrall eeft e nn alot of detail like I would normally but I had really s non feeling.
