                                                                               2
                                     CASE BACKGROUND

        The defendant, Lee Rellik, has been charged with murder for a series of sniper shootings

that terrorized Harrisonville residents for several months. Rellik faces the death penalty if

convicted of murder. Rellik’s lawyers will not dispute involvement in the shootings. Instead, at

issue will be the mental state of the defendant when the shootings occurred.

        Rellik's lawyers have entered a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity at the time of the

offense. As such, jurors deciding Rellik's fate will not have to decide whether Rellik was the

shooter, but rather whether Rellik knew the difference between right and wrong when randomly

shooting the alleged victims. Rellik, a recipient of Social Security benefits, is a paranoid

schizophrenic. Rellik was not taking prescribed medication when the incidents occurred.

        Police, who arrested Rellik in a hotel room in Las Vegas, found a 9 mm Beretta with four

pistol magazines, three of which were loaded with 10 rounds each, 50 9 mm Winchester bullets

and a roll of duct tape. Police also found in the hotel room a MegaGames console with two

video games. One game, called “Contract Killer” according to the MegaGames website, is about

a sniper hiding on rooftops and bridges to take down enemy targets to save innocent lives.

“World Destruction,” also found in the hotel room, is about the cloning of ordinary citizens who

are programmed to gain world domination, but no one believes they exist except the rookie anti-

terrorist agent (the player).

        Rellik’s sniper attacks were targeted at commuters and travelers on I-65 in or near

Harrisonville. The first attacks were in the downtown area. The target zone gradually expanded

north and south on I-65 to cover incidents within 30 miles.




                                                  3
       A grand jury handed down an indictment related to 26 incidents between July 20, 2006,

and November 28, 2006, several of which were linked by ballistics or casing matches to a 9 mm

Beretta handgun that the defendant's parent handed over to police in January 2007. The

indictment contains a murder count for 72-year-old Barbara Johnson, the only person to die in

the attacks, who was shot as her grandchild, Jordan Cline, drove her to a doctor's appointment on

November 15, 2006. Rellik is also charged with the attempted murder of Cline.

       The remaining counts of attempted murder, criminal mischief, and wanton

endangerment refer to the similar modus operandi Rellik allegedly employed by randomly taking

aim at cars from highway overpasses, becoming more brazen with each attack. The last two

shootings were committed in broad daylight, which ultimately led eyewitnesses to identify Rellik

and Rellik’s car, a red Mini Cooper.

       The witnesses for each side of the case are as follows:

       Prosecution:

       Dr. Sydney Spaulding – forensic psychiatrist

       Officer Terry Quinn – investigating officer

       Jordan Cline – victim

       Defense:

       Dr. Morgan Maxwell – forensic psychiatrist

       Pat Rellik – parent of the defendant

       Lee Rellik - defendant

 9                                               STIPULATIONS

10   Note: Counsel for the Commonwealth should introduce the Stipulations into evidence before the first

11   witness is called. These stipulations are not to be read to the jury as a part of the proof, but they may be

12   referred to and quoted in opening statements and closing arguments. No witness may contradict or deny

13   knowledge of the facts contained in the stipulations.

14   The parties have stipulated to the following:

15           1. The Defendant is charged with Murder, Attempted Murder, Manslaughter, Reckless

16               Homicide, Criminal Mischief, and Wanton Endangerment relating to 26 incidents of

17               sniper shootings or wood or bricks or other items being thrown from an overpass.

18               Defendant admits to the 26 incidents of shooting or throwing something from an

19               overpass. If defendant is found guilty on any of the charges, a sentencing hearing

20               will be conducted at a later date. (Note: For mock trial purposes the jury instructions

21               have been shortened to include only the charges of murder and attempted murder.)

22           2. The Defendant has properly filed its notice of insanity defense. The Defendant is,

23               however, competent to stand trial.

24           3. The exhibits are true and accurate copies and their authenticity may not be

25               challenged. Unless stated otherwise herein, the admissibility of the exhibits on other

26               grounds may be challenged.
                                                             5
 1   4. All witness statements have been signed by the witness. The signatures on the

 2      witness statements are omitted due to the electronic delivery of the case. The witness

 3      statements are deemed signed under oath.

 4   5. Barbara Johnson died from a gunshot wound to the chest at approximately 10:15 a.m.

 5      on November 15, 2006.

 6   6. The ballistic reports conducted on January 12, 2007, show that the reported shootings,

 7      as listed in Exhibit 6, came from defendant’s guns.

 8   7. Defendant Rellik admits that he/she fired the bullet from his/her gun that resulted in

 9      the death of Barbara Johnson. The issue of Lee Rellik’s mental state at the time of

10      Johnson’s death and whether the act was intentional are disputed.

11   8. Exhibits 3 and 4 (Excerpts of Lee Rellik’s medical records from Doctors’ Hospital

12      and Wellness Mental Health Clinic) were made at or about the time of the events by a

13      person with knowledge of the events, and are kept in the course of regularly

14      conducted business activity, and it is the regular practice to make such a report.

15   9. Exhibit 5 (the Las Vegas Police Department Arrest Report) does not need to be

16      introduced through a custodian of the records. The Arrest Report shall be deemed

17      part of Officer Terry Quinn’s Investigation File and was made at or about the time of

18      the arrest of Lee Rellik in Las Vegas by a person with knowledge of the events, and is

19      kept in the course of regularly conducted business activity of Quinn’s investigation

20      file, and it is the regular practice to make such a report.

21   10. Exhibit 7 is an accurate transcription of the taped interview between Officer Quinn

22      and Lee Rellik, the defendant.



                                               6
1   11. Exhibit 8 (transcribed 911 call) and Exhibit 9 (MegaGames Website excerpts) are

2      deemed admitted, without objection, and may be introduced at any time during the

3      trial, whether or not through the testimony of a witness.




                                            7
 1                                   Statement of Dr. Sydney Spaulding

 2           My name is Sydney Spaulding. I am board certified in psychiatry and forensic

 3   psychiatry. Exhibit 1 is a true and accurate copy of my curriculum vita. I am frequently called

 4   to testify in high-profile cases. I do not testify strictly for the prosecution.

 5           I was hired by the Prosecutors in this case to perform a psychiatric evaluation of Lee

 6   Rellik and to offer an opinion about whether Rellik met the criteria in Kentucky for legal insanity

 7   at the time of the criminal acts for which he/she is charged. The fee for my professional services

 8   is $500 per hour for my evaluation and $1,000 per hour for my trial testimony.

 9           To perform my evaluation, I conducted a nine-hour interview with Rellik on October 31,

10   2007, which was about 9 months after his/her arrest. At the time of this interview, Rellik was

11   heavily medicated. I also conducted a 40-minute telephone interview a week later with Pat

12   Rellik, the surviving parent of Lee Rellik. In addition to interviewing the Relliks, I reviewed Lee

13   Rellik’s past medical records and the police report from Las Vegas regarding the capture and

14   transportation of Lee Rellik back to Kentucky. Exhibit 2 is a true and accurate copy of my Case

15   Evaluation of Lee Rellik.

16           During my interview of Lee Rellik, the defendant admitted to throwing wooden planks

17   and bricks from highway overpasses starting in July 2006. When Rellik ran out of those

18   materials, he/she switched to a handgun, opening fire at least 200 times between July and

19   November 2006.

20           It is my medical opinion that Lee Rellik would not qualify for an insanity defense

21   because Rellik’s behavior and actions point to a guilty conscience. Rellik was in his/her right

22   mind when he/she went on a four-month shooting spree, killing one person. Although Rellik

23   was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia in 2005, Rellik did understand the wrongfulness of

                                                         8
 1   his/her conduct. When Rellik fired the weapon on each occasion, he/she knew firing the weapon

 2   was wrong.

 3          One can look at Rellik’s behavior to know whether he/she knew right or wrong when

 4   he/she committed the acts. For example, Rellik took steps to avoid detection, from hiding the

 5   murder weapon to concealing his/her involvement in the shootings. Rellik had something to hide

 6   because he/she knew what he/she was doing was wrong rather than being proud of it. If he/she

 7   thought what he/she was doing was right, I would expect him/her to share it with his/her treating

 8   medical professionals or the investigating officers upon being captured. Rellik left the crime

 9   scenes immediately to avoid detection and expanded his/her target area after police installed

10   cameras on highways that the shooter was known to frequent. Also evidence of a guilty

11   conscience was Rellik's choice to flee Harrisonville after he/she found out police wanted to run

12   ballistics testing on his/her 9 mm Beretta handgun. Rellik cuts and dyes his/her hair, withdraws

13   $600 to $700, which empties his/her bank account, gets $4,000 in cash advances from credit

14   cards, then drives straight to Las Vegas. The whole sudden series of things tells you this is a

15   criminal fleeing rather than someone taking a vacation.

16          I have reviewed the psychiatric report of defense psychiatric expert Dr. Morgan Maxwell.

17   I do not dispute Dr. Maxwell’s diagnosis that the defendant suffers from severe paranoid

18   schizophrenia marked by delusions of a conspiracy to persecute Rellik. Rellik also has

19   hallucinations of voices broadcasting through the television. Rellik described to me one

20   particular hallucination in which Rellik believed Oprah suggested through the television that

21   Rellik tear down walls in his/her home in search of hidden cameras. I also agree with Dr.

22   Maxwell that Rellik never expressly intended to harm anyone, but rather fired the shots to let

23   his/her harassers know that he/she could strike back. The shootings also abated the voices of

                                                      9
 1   his/her imagined persecutors. This demonstrates that Rellik’s criminal conduct was out of anger,

 2   frustration, striking back in an effort to reduce harassment to him/her. Rellik told me that he/she

 3   knew what he/she was doing was against the law and, had a policeman been present, he/she

 4   would not have done it because he/she realized he/she would be in trouble and go to jail.

 5          I also believe that the claim that the video games controlled the defendant’s behavior is a

 6   recent fabrication. Lee Rellik could not recall which video games were in the hotel room when

 7   captured, and specifically said that he/she did not really enjoy playing “Contract Killer” or

 8   “World Destruction.” Moreover, in all of Rellik’s prior psychiatric treatment, Rellik never

 9   mentioned clones taking over the world and never claimed to be chosen to “save the world.”

10   Rellik also did not relate any hallucinations of cloning or world domination by “others” when

11   captured by the police in Las Vegas. Finally, Lee Rellik never mentioned these types of

12   hallucinations to the person with whom he/she shared the closest relationship, his/her parent, Pat

13   Rellik. I suppose it’s possible, although unlikely, that someone with paranoid schizophrenia

14   could intentionally choose not to disclose these hallucinations to the police, a parent, or other

15   treating psychiatrists, if the patient was severely delusional in believing that everyone was part of

16   the conspiracy.




                                                      10
 1                                  Statement of Officer Terry Quinn

 2          My name is Terry Quinn. I am a detective with the Collins County Sheriff’s Department.

 3   I have been an investigating officer in homicides for the past 5 years, and have been an officer

 4   with the Collins County Sheriff’s Department for 10 years. My role is to head up investigations

 5   where homicides or attempted homicides have been committed. All information for ongoing

 6   investigations comes through me. I became involved in the sniper shootings that occurred in the

 7   Harrisonville area after a pattern emerged with repeated methodologies and locations, and it

 8   appeared to be more than a childish, although dangerous, prank of something being thrown from

 9   an overpass. The shootings later became more random and did not repeat the same pattern in

10   location. I suspect that as the police investigation and media scrutiny intensified, Rellik

11   purposely traveled farther north or south and did not stay centralized on the I-65 overpasses.

12   Exhibit 6 is a true and accurate copy of excerpts of my investigation notes related to the I-65

13   sniper shootings that occurred between July 20, 2006, and November 28, 2006. The excerpts

14   were made from documents that were made in the ordinary course of my investigation or were

15   reviewed by me as part of my investigation and were made at or about the time of the incidents

16   described in each excerpt, and such records are maintained in my investigation files.

17          On January 7, 2007, at approximately 19:00 hours, I received a tip from an anonymous

18   caller that guns involved in the sniper shootings might be located at the home of Pat Rellik. At

19   the time I had been chasing several different leads, and so I was not able to follow up on this lead

20   until January 12. Upon arriving at the residence of Pat Rellik, I requested that the guns be turned

21   over to me for an investigation. I did not explain further the reason for requesting the guns.

22          On January 15, 2007, I interviewed Pat Rellik. I learned that on the same day that I

23   retrieved the guns, Lee Rellik had said he/she was going to play video games and had not

                                                      11
 1   returned. Pat Rellik stated that Lee knew that the guns were picked up and was “okay” with it.

 2   Pat stated that Lee had never disappeared like that in the past. Pat had filed a missing person

 3   report on January 12. When I reviewed the missing person report, I recall noting that Pat Rellik

 4   indicated that Lee was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, had not taken his/her prescribed

 5   medications when he/she left, and was paranoid of police. I don’t know why I didn’t mention

 6   those things in my excerpt of the missing person report. I am aware that the actual missing

 7   person report is now missing. Those reports and files are maintained by a different part of the

 8   department, and I do not know the circumstances under which the report was lost. It is possible

 9   that the missing report may have merely stated “had not taken prescriptions,” which I suppose

10   could be interpreted to refer to the subject’s prior history of cheeking his/her medication; but I

11   feel pretty certain that the missing report said that the subject had not taken his/her prescribed

12   medication when he/she left the house.

13          On January 16, I obtained a search warrant and through my investigation learned that on

14   1/12/07, Lee Rellik emptied out his/her bank account of $600 and made multiple cash advances

15   from credit cards totaling $4,000. Also on 1/12/07, Lee Rellik purchased another Beretta, as

16   well as additional Winchester 9 mm ammunition. No credit card purchases had been made other

17   than the cash advances. Also, during the search of the Relliks’ residence, it was noted that Lee

18   Rellik’s prescription medication was not located. I issued an immediate news release soliciting

19   information about the whereabouts of the fugitive.

20          The next day I spoke with Zach Hunter, the owner of Hunter's Shooting Supplies outside

21   Harrisonville. Hunter told me that he sold Rellik a 9 mm Beretta on January 12 at about 2:30

22   p.m. Rellik filled out the standard ATF form for purchasing a gun and passed a background

23   check for felony records or outstanding warrants. Hunter described an exchange with Rellik that

                                                      12
 1   stuck in his memory. "Rellik knew right away what he/she wanted to purchase and indicated

 2   he/she had had two of them prior to that. The last one, Rellik said, he/she had shown to his/her

 3   father/mother and he/she liked it so much he/she took it. Rellik said, 'That's what parents are

 4   allowed to do.’”

 5          Rellik was arrested at about 2:45 a.m. on January 18, 2007, in his/her hotel room at

 6   MGM Grand after local authorities, acting on a phone tip, learned that Rellik was staying there.

 7   On January 18, 2007, I received a telephone call at 8:30 am (EST) from the Las Vegas Police

 8   Department informing me that they had Rellik in custody and that he/she would not talk to

 9   anyone except the Kentucky investigating officer. Rellik was given three cups of coffee and

10   cigarettes at his/her request, and chose to sleep on the carpeted floor of the interview room where

11   Rellik awaited the arrival of Kentucky authorities. The officers at the LVPD did not realize that

12   Rellik was previously diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic. The LVPD stated that they had no

13   indication from Rellik to make them believe that Rellik didn’t understand what was going on

14   around them.

15          I got the earliest flight to Las Vegas, arriving at the LVPD at 16:30 hours. I reviewed the

16   Arrest Report. Exhibit 5 is a true and accurate copy of the Arrest Report. I then interviewed the

17   subject after making sure that his/her Miranda rights had been read to him/her. Rellik was

18   responsive and alert, and did not appear to be psychotic at the time. I did not inquire whether

19   Rellik was on his/her medication at the time. I assume that Rellik was not on the medication

20   because there was no documentation that it was with his/her belongings or in the hotel room

21   when captured. Also, I had recalled that the missing person report stated that Rellik had not

22   taken his/her medication when he/she left the Relliks’ residence. No drug tests were performed

23   by the LVPD at the time of the arrest because Rellik was wanted for crimes in Kentucky and was

                                                     13
 1   going to be transported to Kentucky. Exhibit 7 is a true and accurate transcription of the taped

 2   interview with Lee Rellik on January 18, 2007.

 3          Lee Rellik spent his/her last days as a free person gambling and dealing with car troubles

 4   while on the lam in Las Vegas. I was informed that at the time of the arrest, Rellik was

 5   cooperative and did not offer much reaction to the arrest. Following the arrest, Rellik talked

 6   about his/her time on the lam after leaving Kentucky on January 12. We had a general

 7   conversation about things Rellik had been doing while in Las Vegas. Rellik said he/she had

 8   gambled in a few establishments, and prior to the arrest, he/she had been playing 3-card poker in

 9   the MGM casino. Rellik was able to explain the rules of the game to me. Rellik also told me of

10   car troubles he/she had experienced.

11          Rellik told me that after he/she learned that the police were going to test his/her guns,

12   he/she took off to Las Vegas because “it looked bad for him/her.” Rellik told me that he/she

13   rented the room for a week and paid cash.

14          Rellik admitted to the shootings. Rellik described the first time he/she shot at a driver on

15   I-65 and that the first location was closest to his/her house. Rellik said that he/she constantly

16   heard voices that harassed him/her. Rellik said that he/she believed there was a conspiracy.

17   Rellik indicated that by throwing things off the overpasses or shooting at people that he/she was

18   letting “them” know that he/she had the ability to strike back. When I asked how Rellik first got

19   the idea of dropping something or shooting from an overpass, Rellik responded that he/she had

20   no idea and could not think of any TV show or video game which gave him/her the idea.

21          I asked Rellik why he/she stopped throwing items from the overpass and started shooting.

22   Rellik replied that he/she had run out of materials to throw off the overpass. Rellik purchased

1   his/her first gun on May 3, 2006, and his/her second gun on September 30, 2006. Rellik reported

2   that he/she felt bad about throwing things from the overpass because “it could hurt someone.”

3          Rellik did not appear to be remorseful. On the return flight to Kentucky, Rellik joked and

4   talked about gambling in Las Vegas. After a passenger went to the plane’s bathroom, Rellik

5   joked that “no one was allowed to poop on the plane because we wouldn’t want to hit any cars,

6   would we?”

 1                                           Statement of Jordan Cline

 2          My name is Jordan Cline. My friends call me Jo-Jo. I am the grandchild of Barbara

 3   Johnson, who was killed by one of the sniper shootings from an overpass on I-65. I was at the

 4   time 16 and had not had my license more than a few months at the time of Grandma’s tragic

 5   death. I don’t drive anymore because I blame myself for Grandma’s death. I am an “A” student

 6   at Central High School in Harrisonville and plan to study law.

 7          On November 15, 2006, I did not have school because there was a teachers’ conference

 8   scheduled for that day. So, I volunteered to drive Grandma to a 10:30 a.m. doctor's appointment.

 9   I liked being with my Grandma and helping out. Grandma was 72 and didn’t drive. I also liked

10   getting the opportunity to drive whenever I got the chance.

11          I had heard about the sniper shootings off of I-65, but I took I-65 anyway. In retrospect, I

12   realize that when you’re young you think you’re invincible, and it never occurred to me that

13   Grandma or I could be victims. I took I-65 because I was familiar with that route to the doctor’s

14   office. As we chatted in the car, I missed the exit and had just turned around when we heard a

15   “pop” that sounded like “a balloon popping.” It almost sounded like a “backfire.” Grandma said

16   “Oh, what was that?” and then her head dropped to the side. I made the wrong turn. If I hadn't

17   made the wrong turn, this wouldn't have happened.

18          I thought the bullet came from the overpass near our exit but then I glanced into the

19   rearview mirror and noticed someone getting into a dark car. I saw a gun in the individual's hand.

20   The shooter’s face showed no emotion, almost zombie-like. I now recognize that the person I

21   saw in my rearview mirror was Lee Rellik. He/she sped away in his/her car shortly after the shot

22   was fired, so I did not get a real close look. It appeared to me that the shooter left after he/she



                                                       16
 1   noticed that I was looking at him/her in the rearview mirror. He/she probably also noticed that I

 2   had picked up my cell phone and was making a phone call.

 3          I was trying to keep calm and, at the same time, make sure no one was hurt. I called 911.

 4   Exhibit 8 is a true and accurate transcription of the 911 call. I felt helpless. Grandma died

 5   before the ambulance got to us. I held her hand until the paramedics pulled me away and sent

 6   me to the hospital to be treated for shock.

 7          Although I will never forgive Lee Rellik for killing my Grandma, I don’t think he/she

 8   was aiming at us directly. The bullet should have just gone over our knees, but it hit a

 9   mechanism which made it ricochet and strike Grandma in the chest.

10          I have had many nightmares since that day. It will be something I will never forget.




                                                     17
 1                                   Statement of Dr. Morgan Maxwell

 2            My name is Dr. Morgan Maxwell. Counsel for Defendant Lee Rellik engaged me for the

 3   purposes of evaluating Lee Rellik and determining the existence of a medical basis for a plea of

 4   not guilty by reason of insanity. I have offered my professional services gratis as I am aware that

 5   the defendant has limited financial resources. I have not been involved in many high profile

 6   cases and admit that the exposure in this case would be beneficial professionally. I have had

 7   some discussions with Lee and Pat Rellik regarding a book deal, but nothing has been put into

 8   writing, and it is not my primary purpose for getting involved in this case.

 9            I am a physician, specializing in psychiatry, and hold board certifications in psychiatry

10   and forensic psychiatry. I have performed scores of competency evaluations at the request of

11   judges, prosecutors, United States Attorneys, and defense attorneys throughout the country. In

12   addition to my medical education, training and experience, I hold a law degree from Harvard

13   Law School. I have held positions of President of the American Psychiatric Association and the

14   American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law. I have received numerous honors and awards,

15   including the Isaac Ray Award for outstanding contributions to forensic psychiatry and

16   psychiatric aspects of jurisprudence from the American Psychiatric Association, “Pearl of the

17   Year” award from Current Psychiatry, the Golden Apple Award for significant contributions to

18   forensic psychiatry, American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law, and the Distinguished Life

19   Fellow, American Psychiatric Association (APA), in recognition of significant contributions to

20   psychiatry. I maintain a private practice in Washington, D.C. with the Forensic Psychiatry

21   Group.

22            I have acquired sufficient information to provide an opinion on the issue of Lee Rellik’s

23   mental state at the time of the alleged offenses. For purposes of this evaluation, I have reviewed

                                                       18
 1   Kentucky law regarding the test for not guilty by reason of insanity. I have also conducted

 2   testing and clinical interviews of Lee Rellik over three days, and have reviewed Rellik’s medical

 3   and psychiatric records prior to his/her arrest, Social Security Administration records, medical

 4   records since his/her incarceration, and Rellik’s neuropsychological evaluation as performed by

 5   Dr. Seth Young, M.D. In addition, I have consulted with Dr. Young by telephone and in person

 6   on a great number of occasions.

 7          Based upon my education, training, and experience, clinical testing and interviews and

 8   review of the pertinent records, it is my opinion that at the time of committing the alleged

 9   offenses, Lee Rellik, by reason of severe mental disease, did not appreciate the wrongfulness of

10   his/her conduct and therefore did not know right from wrong.

11          Lee Rellik is twenty years old and appears to be well nourished for the stated age.

12   Rellik’s affect is significantly constricted, although he/she is readily oriented to time, place, and

13   circumstance. Rellik understands that he/she has been charged with numerous crimes including

14   murder. Specifically, Rellik understands that he/she is charged with having discharged a weapon

15   on Interstate 65, and further that he/she is eligible for the death penalty as charged. Rellik

16   understands that he/she is incarcerated pending trial, and further that his/her jailers are presently

17   in charge of his/her medical care. This is important because it relates to his/her understanding

18   that he/she needs to cooperate with the mental health liaison as provided by the Sheriff’s

19   Department. Lee correctly identifies his/her counsel by name and appears to understand their

20   functions and goals. He/she is aware of both the identities and roles of the Court and the

21   Prosecuting Attorney.

22          As is my custom, I did not complete a formal physical examination of Lee Rellik;

23   however, he/she appeared without injury. Rellik reports no acute trauma or discomfort. Rellik’s

                                                       19
 1   mental records of treatment during incarceration indicate no trauma or injury. According to

 2   accounts from Pat Rellik, Lee is appropriately affectionate toward Pat. Rellik reports

 3   successfully graduating from Beech Grove High School and thereafter attending a community

 4   college. Lee also described having held a clerk level position but reported no regular work since

 5   at least 2005. In 2006, Rellik was determined totally and permanently disabled as a result of

 6   mental illness by the Social Security Administration.

 7          Based upon materials reviewed, including medical records from Doctors’ Hospital that

 8   describe his/her October 2005 hospitalization and outpatient records from Wellness Mental

 9   Health Clinic, it is my understanding that Lee Rellik has functioned with a diagnosis of paranoid

10   schizophrenia for several years. Schizophrenia is the most serious of the chronic mental illnesses

11   where the sufferer typically develops delusions of persecution and/or personal grandeur. The

12   paranoid subtype of this disorder exhibits preoccupation with one or more systemized delusions

13   or with frequent auditory hallucinations, often related to a single theme. While paranoid

14   schizophrenia’s cause or causes are not fully understood at this time, the illness is known to have

15   a genetic component to its etiology.

16          Lee Rellik suffered from paranoid delusions that could only be quelled by shooting at

17   cars and throwing wood planks or bricks onto freeways. Rellik said that demeaning voices

18   tormented him/her. Rellik was desperate to control the voices. Rellik had the sudden distorted

19   perception that if he/she dropped things from the overpass or shot at cars, it would attenuate the

20   voices. As a result, the defendant could not distinguish between right and wrong when he/she

21   opened fire on numerous targets, killing one person.

22          The disease’s onset is ordinarily observed between ages 18 and 25, but earlier or later

23   emergence often occurs. During the course of Rellik’s clinical evaluation, Lee related symptoms

                                                     20
 1   consistent with the sufferance of paranoid schizophrenia dating back to age ten. Rellik told me

 2   that the first signs of his/her psychosis began surfacing when he/she suspected the bathroom

 3   spout was actually a camera. As is common among paranoid schizophrenics, Rellik never told

 4   anyone of this growing paranoia, which peaked in 2005 when Rellik began tearing apart the

 5   walls in search of hidden cameras. Rellik's delusions became so severe he/she began passing

 6   notes to Pat Rellik in their home to avoid speaking aloud.

 7          Lee Rellik understands that he/she is ill and does not dispute the existence of the disease

 8   nor its effects on him/her. Lee also concedes failure to take prescribed medications at various

 9   times throughout his/her illness. It is my understanding that Dr. Schap, Rellik’s treating

10   psychiatrist, had prescribed various antipsychotic medicines in an effort to control the illness,

11   and most recently, that is prior to Rellik’s incarceration, had utilized 2 daily milligrams of

12   Risperdal. Rellik currently takes 8 daily milligrams of Risperdal. Rellik and I have agreed that

13   he/she will accept 10 milligrams, the maximum for this medication, if the jail psychiatrist

14   prescribes it for him/her, as well as Trazadone to facilitate the regulation of his/her sleep cycle

15   and, perhaps more importantly, to help control depressive symptoms. Rellik reports feeling

16   dramatically better under this current regimen.

17          As observed during each day of the evaluation, Rellik is cooperative with adequate social

18   skills. Rellik is polite and responsive during the evaluation process. Rellik is also motivated to

19   assist the defense counsel. To help determine Rellik’s competence, I employed the Minnesota

20   Multiphasic Psychological Inventory, Second Edition (MMPI-2), as well as a number of

21   interviewing techniques. Rellik successfully completed the test. Interpretation of the

22   examination, together with other information, confirms a severe paranoid schizophrenia

23   diagnosis. Additional factors confirming the primary diagnosis of severe paranoid schizophrenia

                                                       21
 1   include the opinions and diagnosis of previous treating physicians, the opinions, diagnosis and

 2   case provided by the mental health liaison since the incarceration, the results of Rellik’s

 3   neuropsychological evaluation, and positive responsiveness to antipsychotic medication.

 4          It appears from the evaluations performed by Dr. Seth Young and me that Rellik has

 5   average estimated premorbid capacities for intelligence and memory. However, Rellik’s present-

 6   day situation indicates significantly below average levels of both intelligence and memory.

 7   Further, Rellik’s memory respective to the circumstances of the offenses is not optimal. Rellik’s

 8   depressed intelligence and memory are consistent with the cognitive and executive functioning

 9   deficiencies typically observed in those with paranoid schizophrenia. Rellik’s decreased ability

10   to remember the specific circumstances of his/her conduct at the time of the offenses is further

11   consistent with being significantly psychotic and delusional at the time of these offenses. The

12   disease rendered Rellik unable to accurately recall details from the shootings. Most people don't

13   like to think of themselves as nuts. It's common to shut off the part of memory that describes

14   mental illness.

15          Using a variety of interviewing techniques, Rellik admits that he/she has engaged in a

16   wide variety of conduct that he/she now understands to have created risk and/or was illegal.

17   Rellik explains that his/her conduct included dropping wooden 4 x 4 stakes from various

18   overpasses of I-65, dropping bricks from various overpasses of I-65, and ultimately, firing a gun

19   near, around, or at the I-65 freeway.

20          Rellik’s illness caused him/her to experience auditory hallucinations and ideas of

21   reference for a great number of years. Over the last year, Rellik’s hallucinations became more

22   prevalent. Rellik’s auditory delusions were of a consistent theme wherein people had been able

23   to read his/her mind and used the information read to harass Rellik. Rellik’s invented abusers

                                                      22
 1   incessantly used Rellik’s innermost insecurities, depressions, and thoughts to harass and torture

 2   Rellik. Generally speaking, the source of the harassment was the television. Rellik reports

 3   having experienced a great many ideas of reference when he/she was threatened or demeaned by

 4   characters on television. When Rellik’s residence changed on two occasions, the illness changed

 5   sharply and became more acute. Rellik’s auditory hallucinations magnified and not only

 6   included the television, but also through video games. Rellik was consumed with playing video

 7   games, and the distinction between reality and games blurred for him/her. Rellik became

 8   obsessed with mastering the different levels of the video games and under his/her delusion

 9   defeating “the harassers,” those who were out to harm him or other innocent people. The two

10   video games that were located in the hotel room when Rellik was captured were “Contract

11   Killer” and “World Destruction.” The video games suggested that clones were taking over the

12   world or that a contract killer was needed to save innocent people. Exhibit 9 is a true and

13   accurate copy of excerpts from the MegaGames website describing the “Contract Killer” and

14   “World Destruction” games. Rellik’s delusional thoughts led him/her to believe that the clones

15   were reading his/her mind to gain world domination and that he/she therefore needed to save the

16   world.

17            During this time, Rellik also suspended taking the prescribed medications based on the

18   paranoid delusional thought that the medications were part of the cloning process. Suspension of

19   the medication resulted in totally uncontrolled delusions and ideas of reference. The intensity of

20   Rellik’s affliction, coupled with his/her well-documented proclivity toward “cheeking,” or

21   pretending to take medication, made the psychosis particularly severe. Rellik admitted to

22   cheeking the medication because, according to Rellik, “it interfered with the ability to read minds

23   to determine if people were real or clones, like in the video games.” During this time period,

                                                     23
 1   Rellik’s delusions were not constant, but certainly were frequent. At times between psychotic

 2   episodes or delusions, Rellik contemplated suicide. Rellik eventually procured a handgun for the

 3   purpose of suicide.

 4          At or near the same time period of procuring the handgun, Rellik developed the idea that

 5   dropping wooden 4 x 4’s would cause the voices to stop. Rellik began dropping the wood from

 6   overpasses and would experience immediate relief from the auditory hallucinations. Rellik then

 7   conceived the idea of dropping bricks from the overpasses to procure the desired result. Doing

 8   so, again while quite psychotic, made the voices stop. Rellik believed that his/her actions scared

 9   the clones away. Over time the effect of the bricks and wood lessened. Then Rellik developed

10   the idea that shooting the gun would scare the clones because they would know that he/she

11   “meant business.”

12          Rellik initially fired the gun out of the driver’s window while operating his/her car. Due

13   to the lessening of desired relief from the clones, Rellik changed methods and went from

14   shooting from a moving vehicle, to parking beneath overpasses and shooting, to exiting the

15   vehicle to shoot, and ultimately to shooting from overpasses. Rellik reports not paying any

16   attention to the direction of the shots. In fact, the point of Rellik’s psychotic delusions was not to

17   hit anything, but rather to merely fire the gun to scare away the clones. Rellik never intended to

18   harm anyone.

19          Rellik’s testing shows low cognitive function that is consistent with what one expects to

20   find in someone suffering from paranoid schizophrenia with prominent symptoms of suicidal

21   thoughts, thoughts of delusions, feelings of suspicion, and acute psychotic turmoil. Clearly,

22   Rellik is psychologically impaired. Although the testing was done more recently than at the time

23   of the incidents, I believe that these appear to be long-standing results. Moreover, I tested Rellik

                                                      24
 1   under optimal circumstances because of the “significant” amount of medication Rellik was

 2   receiving when evaluated. Rellik was probably experiencing greater cognitive deficits at the

 3   time of the shootings.

 4          In relationship to legal insanity, during the times of the offenses Rellik was doubtlessly

 5   aware of a great many conditions existing around him/her. Rellik was able to function in the

 6   world. Rellik was able to operate a vehicle, for instance. It's very common in paranoid

 7   schizophrenics to have areas of significant impairment and islands where cognitive skills are

 8   preserved. There’s a lot of truth to the adage, “I may be crazy, but I'm not stupid.” Therefore, it

 9   is not surprising that Rellik performed well on general knowledge tests, including one in which

10   he/she successfully identified Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Shakespeare. It is also important to

11   note that when these tests were given to Rellik, the defendant was on four different types of

12   medication, including the antidepressant Risperdal, and was given a dosage that was 400 times

13   higher than the initial amount.

14          Despite Rellik’s cognitive ability, in relationship to the actual conduct charged, it is my

15   opinion that Rellik did not appreciate the wrongfulness of his/her conduct. My opinion is based

16   upon two reasons. First, during these times, Rellik was acutely psychotic, delusional, and was

17   experiencing a separation from reality. Second, and closely related to the first issue, at the time

18   of committing the offenses, the offenses themselves were their own predetermined realities.

19   Rellik explains this in the following context: because of the clones around him/her and due to

20   the harassment and demands of the voices, shooting the gun was the “right” conduct, and further,

21   Rellik believed that everyone knew what he/she was doing while he/she was doing it. There was

22   never any effort to conceal himself/herself or his/her actions.



                                                      25
 1          I cannot say that the defendant was in the thrall of the psychosis during the time frame of

 2   the shootings. During this period, I consider Lee Rellik chronically and severely psychotic. But

 3   it would be disingenuous for me to say that at any given particular moment he/she was psychotic.

 4   I disagree with Dr. Spaulding that Rellik took a number of steps that indicate he/she appreciated

 5   the implications of his/her conduct by fleeing Harrisonville for Las Vegas when he/she became a

 6   suspect. Rellik may have been “escaping,” but it was not an escape because of knowledge of the

 7   wrongfulness of the conduct; rather, Rellik was looking for a new adventure to find inner peace.

 8   Rellik saw going to Las Vegas as a vacation. Rellik did not hide in Las Vegas, but rather was

 9   very public in his/her appearance at various gaming tables. Rellik changed his/her hair as part of

10   this new adventure/new life.

11          It is my opinion that Lee Rellik was psychotic, delusional, and experienced a separation

12   from reality in conjunction with his/her conduct, and that these conditions were caused by the

13   sufferance of severe paranoid schizophrenia marked by delusions of conspiracy to persecute

14   Rellik and delusions of cloning for purposes of world domination. Accordingly, Lee Rellik did

15   not appreciate the wrongfulness of his/her conduct.




                                                     26
 1                                        Statement of Pat Rellik

 2          I am Pat Rellik, the parent of Lee Rellik. Lee was a normal, popular kid throughout

 3   school. When Lee was 10, his/her father/mother died in a tragic accident. In retrospect, I see

 4   that this was a time in Lee’s life that he/she had difficulty coping. Honestly, I withdrew myself,

 5   as it is difficult to lose someone you love. I feel the same way now about Lee. I feel like I’ve

 6   lost Lee to this illness—the paranoid schizophrenia. We used to play games and have fun

 7   together. Lee, once a boisterous and outgoing high school student, began to withdraw from

 8   friends and become isolated. After Lee’s graduation from high school, Lee became even more

 9   withdrawn, even reclusive.

10          A series of bizarre incidents began to follow, including occasions in which Lee removed

11   panels and mirrors from the walls in our home in search of hidden cameras. In 2005, I came

12   home from a party to find that Lee had removed four 4-foot panels from the basement walls in

13   search of cameras he/she claimed were spying on him/her. Lee would also remove mirrors in the

14   wall in search of the cameras. Lee told me a story about Oprah telling Lee through the television

15   that there were surveillance cameras and that someone was watching him/her.

16          I was very scared at that point. I didn't know what to do or where to turn. I was fearful

17   that Lee might be suicidal or hurt someone. Lee would not go voluntarily to a mental institution

18   because Lee thought everyone was involved in a conspiracy. So I made up a story to have Lee

19   involuntarily committed. I was desperate and it was my way of trying to help Lee get some

20   professional help. So, I brought Lee to Doctors’ Hospital and told them that Lee had choked me,

21   although this never happened. As an employee of the Kentucky Parole Board, I was somewhat

22   familiar with what needed to be established for involuntary commitments. Lee was treated by

23   Dr. Schap, who was phenomenal. It was the first ray of hope I’d had for Lee for a long time.

                                                      27
 1           Dr. Schap diagnosed Lee with paranoid schizophrenia during that hospitalization, which

 2   lasted about 4 days. Later, Lee was deemed permanently disabled due to the schizophrenia and

 3   began receiving SSI benefits in 2006.

 4           After Lee was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, Lee resisted treatment and avoided

 5   taking his/her medication to the point where he/she was prescribed water-soluble medication that

 6   made it more difficult for him/her to “cheek,” or pretend to take the medication because it made

 7   Lee bloated and caused muscle spasms and diarrhea. I made threats to kick Lee out of the house

 8   if he/she did not take the medication. Lee was “weary” and “zombie-like” when he/she would

 9   not take the medication. I could usually tell it in Lee’s eyes. Lee has a look like he/she won't

10   look at you, but sort of like he/she’s looking through you. Not like today. Lee would not be

11   focused, or Lee would be confused and had trouble remembering things. You would say

12   something to Lee and there’d be a pause. You could tell there were visual things going on in

13   his/her eyes. Lee was seeing things that we're not seeing. Although I knew Lee wasn't taking

14   the medication, I didn't force him/her to do it. It was a constant battle. Lee was an adult.

15           I’ve noticed a significant change in Lee since he/she was booked into Collins County Jail,

16   where Lee receives medication — including the antipsychotic drug Risperdal and the

17   antidepressant Trazadone — 400 times more than his/her original dosage. I got my child back,

18   with him/her being on all the medication he/she's been made to take. That was my child from 10

19   years ago. Just a month ago, Lee came out humming a song he/she hasn’t sung since he/she was

20   a child. Lee’s able to smile now, for the first time in a long time. Lee was recently able to have

21   a little bit of a giggle, also for the first time in years. When I first began visiting Lee in jail, Lee

22   would be very listless and non-responsive. Now, we’re able to have a lot more logical

23   interaction. I attribute Lee’s mental stability to Dr. Maxwell. Finally, there’s someone who

                                                        28
 1   understands Lee’s world and can improve his/her life. I owe my son/daughter’s life to Dr.

 2   Maxwell. I’ve never met Dr. Maxwell personally, but if he/she wants exclusive rights to a book

 3   deal, it’s the least we can do.

 4           Around the time of the shootings, Lee did not appear oriented in time, place and

 5   circumstance. Even after we went to Chuck E. Cheese an hour after one of the shootings, I did

 6   not notice anything unusual. Lee asked me to place the order because Lee did not want to

 7   interact with people. It is true that none of the strange behavior such as the removal of the

 8   paneling and mirrors was evident during the time of the shootings, and Lee did not talk about

 9   hearing voices at that time. But after the one incident when Lee was hospitalized after telling me

10   about the voices from the TV, Lee never talked to me about hearing voices anymore.

11           I never suspected Lee was involved in the shootings, even after I began finding guns in

12   the home. I was concerned Lee would use them to commit suicide. So I decided to take away

13   the guns from Lee. I confiscated 4 guns from Lee and later handed them over to authorities,

14   including the weapon used in the shootings.

15           There were three instances when I discovered Lee was stashing weapons in our home.

16   Once, I staged a ruse to seize a gun from Lee without him/her knowing. I asked Lee to mow the

17   grass, and while Lee was doing that I smuggled the gun out of the house and stashed it in the

18   trunk of my car. It was important that Lee not notice the gun had been taken because it would

19   probably make Lee upset. This way, I thought Lee would think he/she misplaced it. Later, I

20   discovered two shotguns under Lee’s bed. Lee said he/she wanted them for hunting. I moved

21   the guns to a friend’s house. Subsequently, I found two pieces of a disassembled 9 mm Beretta

22   that would prove to be the weapon used in the shootings. I confronted Lee about the gun. Lee

23   said he/she needed it for protection. Lee thought the other gun had been stolen.

                                                      29
 1          In January 2007 after police contacted me and requested the guns without explaining

 2   why, I called Lee on his/her cell phone and asked Lee’s permission to hand over the guns. Lee

 3   just said, “No problem.” Later that evening, Lee left home, telling me he/she was going to an

 4   arcade to play video games, and never returned. Lee did not act suspicious.

 5          I contacted the Collins County Sheriff’s Department on January 12, 2007, several hours

 6   after Lee had left the house, to report Lee as missing because it had gotten late, and when I had

 7   tried to make contact with Lee on his/her cell phone, he/she could not be reached. This had

 8   never happened previously. I also noticed that Lee had taken some things from the house that

 9   made me suspicious, like Lee’s MegaGames console and a suitcase. I provided Lee’s description

10   and noted that Lee was diagnosed as paranoid schizophrenic. I also indicated that Lee was

11   paranoid of police officers. I never indicated that Lee had not taken his/her medications with

12   him/her. I know I wouldn’t have said this because after I realized that Lee was gone, I began to

13   check what things were missing, and I noticed that Lee’s Risperdal was missing. I never heard

14   from Lee again until Lee was captured in Las Vegas and brought back to Kentucky.

15          I talked to the police a few days after Lee was missing and provided as much information

16   as possible. The following day, I was served with the search warrant. I don’t think they found

17   anything that made Lee’s acts look like they were calculated, planned, or premeditated. I was

18   still in a state of disbelief that Lee was involved in the sniper shootings. In the past, when I had

19   talked to Lee about the sniper shootings and the person who had been killed, Lee seemed

20   genuinely surprised to hear that.

21          I sincerely apologize to the victims of Lee’s shooting spree that killed one person and

22   terrorized Kentuckians for months. I felt such utter grief for the Johnson family. These were

23   two tragedies in one; I can’t express how sorry I am.

                                                      30
 1                                        Statement of Lee Rellik

 2          I am Lee Rellik. I am 20 years old. I deeply regret the things I’ve done. At the time I

 3   did not think they were wrong because of my illness. I thought I would save the world and

 4   innocent people, like me, from clones programmed to gain world domination. Now that I’m

 5   under medication, I have a full appreciation for what I’ve done.

 6          My illness started about ten years ago. My father/mother passed away. I was pretty

 7   young and it was hard to cope. My father/mother’s death left us short a second income so we

 8   moved into a smaller home and into a different neighborhood. All of the changes were

 9   confusing to me. I recall thinking that the TV satellite dishes left by the former owner were to

10   spy on us. I also thought that there were cameras in the drain spout of the bathtub. Those

11   thoughts were with me on and off for a long time. We moved again when I was 18 and I really

12   hated that house and neighborhood. I thought the neighbors were making fun of me all the time

13   and harassing me. I remember shoveling snow and people driving by laughing. At one level I

14   realized that they might be honking to greet a neighbor, but I still felt that they were harassing

15   and ridiculing me. I started to become a loner and got through the days by playing video games.

16   I started playing more and more violent and action games because they’re the fun ones to play. I

17   really liked playing “Contract Killer” and “World Destruction.” I played them as often as

18   possible and successfully completed all of the levels. Because I had dropped out of Ivy Tech

19   Community College and had lost my job at the BP station, I had lots of time to play video games.

20   I could go 10 hours without hardly stopping. It became an obsession. It was like my own little

21   world. When I wasn’t playing video games, I watched TV. At the time, I thought I was a mind

22   reader and because my mind was open to reading other minds, I began to obsess that others could

23   read my mind too. It’s sort of weird talking about this now. It’s like I’m talking about another

                                                      31
 1   person when I look back at my old ideas, thoughts and actions. It’s like an out-of-body

 2   experience. It’s all still fuzzy to me looking back, and I don’t have recall of specifics. I do

 3   remember a few things.

 4          Prior to going to Doctors’ Hospital in October 2005, I recall thinking that Oprah was

 5   telling me through the TV that people were watching me through surveillance cameras in the

 6   house. I became convinced that Oprah was talking to me because one day Regis Philbin was

 7   wearing a bandana on his show, and I had worn the same bandana the day before. So, I started

 8   searching for the cameras, pulling away paneling in the home, and taking down all the mirrors to

 9   make sure nothing was hiding behind them. That shook up my dad/mom and so he/she brought

10   me to Doctors’ Hospital. I’ve heard the hospital records say that I had attempted to choke my

11   dad/mom, but that’s not true. I was never a violent person. I never wanted to hurt anyone.

12          I hated taking my medication; it made me nauseous, gave me diarrhea, and I didn’t get

13   good sleep when I was on it. So I pretended to take it. I became even more paranoid. I thought

14   people in the neighborhood were severely harassing me. I didn’t trust anyone. I thought that the

15   government and police were in on some conspiracy and so were the doctors, psychiatrists and

16   social workers. My neighbors kept looking at me suspiciously and so I knew they were in on it

17   too. I was convinced that they had been cloned and no one was who they seemed to be. I took

18   my medication less and less because I thought that it was a mind-altering drug that was part of

19   the cloning process or that it would prevent my ability to mind read so that I could protect myself

20   from the clones, like in the video games. Have you ever seen the Batman movie where the Joker

21   takes everyday common household products like shampoo, hairspray, shaving cream and adds

22   chemicals to use them for his evil intentions? Well, that’s sort of what was going on in my mind,

23   except everyone was being cloned through items they least suspected.

                                                      32
 1          I believed that when neighbors played loud music, it was part of the conspiracy to harass

 2   me. My dad/mom discussed the idea of moving because I hated noise, and there were a lot of

 3   noisy kids in the neighborhood. I started to build a deck off the back of the house hoping that it

 4   would help sell the house. The TV ridiculed my work on the deck and told me that my deck

 5   would interfere with our ability to sell the house.

 6          One day in July 2006 when I was working on the deck, a piece of wood struck me on the

 7   head. I decided I would drive to an overpass and drop a 2-foot or 3-foot 4x4 piece of wood onto

 8   Interstate 65. I mostly did it to blackmail “them” and control the voices. I thought “If you are

 9   going to do this to me, then this is what I'm going to do.” I let the clones know that I had the

10   ability to strike back. I wanted to get “them” to stop harassing me and to leave other innocent

11   people alone.

12          I did not tell my father/mother about it because I knew he/she would not approve. When

13   I dropped the piece of wood, I did not want to hurt anyone directly. My mind went blank; I just

14   did it. After I dropped the piece of wood over the overpass, I felt relief because I thought I

15   probably scared the clones. When I got home my noisy neighbors were not out, so I decided that

16   they knew what I did by "mind reading" and they must have gone into their houses. I decided

17   that dropping the wood reduced the harassment and controlled the clones. After each of the

18   occasions of dropping something from the overpass, my harassment seemed to decrease, but

19   often it increased back to a maximum level in a few days. I can’t distinguish the details of one

20   from another. I recalled that about half of the incidents involved pieces of lumber and the other

21   half involved bricks. I used that material because it was left over from my work on the deck.

22          When I dropped things, I only looked a couple of times to see what happened when the

23   object dropped. I never saw or heard any object directly hit a vehicle. I started shooting because

                                                      33
 1   the woods and bricks weren’t stopping the clones. I had initially purchased the gun to commit

 2   suicide, but when I watched television one night, David Letterman told me not to do it. I did not

 3   tell my father/mother about purchasing a gun because I believed that he/she would not want one

 4   in the house. When the gun disappeared, I thought the clones stole it. Later, I dismantled the

 5   Beretta and threw away some pieces so it could not be fired. I did this because I had doubts

 6   about the six degrees of separation. They were trying to connect the world to me.

 7          When I shot the gun, I never aimed it at anyone or anything. I was just shooting it to

 8   scare the clones. The first time I fired the gun, I was driving in my car and fired out an open

 9   window. I shot into the wind, and I didn't think the bullet went very far. I never aimed at an

10   object or a moving vehicle. I had no reason to. When I fired from an overpass, I aimed at the

11   berm. I didn't take much aim because I had to look away to avoid being blinded by the firing.

12          I noticed that when I was under an overpass that the shots made my ears ring. So I got

13   the idea to shoot from the top of overpasses. I believed “they,” who controlled the TV and

14   conspired to take over the world, were amused and distracted by this activity. It was like six

15   degrees of separation. They, who control the voices and the television, were playing a game. As

16   long as I made the ears ring of persons going under the overpass, the clones left the innocent

17   people alone. My motivation was the same for all of the shootings after that.

18          I was unaware during the whole time that there was any publicity about the shootings or

19   things being dropped off the overpass. I didn’t even know about Barbara Johnson passing until I

20   was arrested in Vegas. We did not get the newspaper delivered to our house, and I did not watch

21   the local news. So, it’s crazy to think that I changed the pattern of my conduct to avoid

22   detection. I also never took off fast after one of the incidents. I left because I had nothing else to



                                                       34
 1   do there. I didn’t know that what I was doing was against the law. I was not in my right mind at

 2   the time.

 3          I didn’t have any plan or pattern as to which overpasses I chose. I would just drive

 4   around and pick one. I didn’t think about where they were located with regard to how I would

 5   get away. I never chose an overpass based on increased police patrols or the placement of

 6   surveillance cameras in a particular area.

 7          I never took any steps to avoid being apprehended. I did not leave town because I was

 8   fearful of being arrested. I did not tell my dad/mom because I knew he/she wouldn’t like the

 9   idea of me being on my own on a vacation. I left for Vegas because I was bored with the

10   shooting and was tired of trying to save the world. I wanted a little adventure vacation. I

11   expected to stay in Las Vegas one week. On my return I planned to shoot a couple times in each

12   state as I drove through. I thought that resuming shooting would keep the clones at bay. I took

13   $4,000 in cash advances on my credit cards before leaving for Vegas because I hoped to strike it

14   rich in Las Vegas.

15          I made no effort to hide my identity in Vegas, and I was unaware that there was a police

16   bulletin out for me. I didn’t use my credit cards because I prefer to use cash when I have it. I

17   changed my hair color and cut because I was ready for a new adventure in Vegas. If I were

18   trying to hide, would I get a player card at the hotel and be out at the gaming tables? I never said

19   that I knew things would not look good for me if the ballistics matched.

20          I sincerely apologize to the citizens of Harrisonville and mostly to the Johnson family. I

21   only wish that I had been on the medication I’m taking now so that I wouldn’t have had all my

22   crazy thoughts and caused harm to people.

                                 CASE EVALUATION OF
                                     LEE RELLIK
                                   NOVEMBER 8, 2007

Family Background: Lee Rellik was born on September 1, 1987, in Greenwood, Kentucky.
Rellik has no siblings. Rellik was raised by Pat and Chris Rellik in an “easygoing and
cheerful” environment until 1997, when a tragic automobile accident killed Chris Rellik. Lee
Rellik was “shaken up” by the loss of the parent, and felt more isolated because Pat Rellik
became emotionally unavailable, not having coped well with the tragedy.

Family Psychiatric History: Rellik reported that a cousin is schizophrenic.

Religious History: Rellik was not raised in any religion and says that he/she “tries to abide
by the golden rule.”

Education: Rellik was a “C student.” Rellik claims to have had friends throughout high
school and was popular. After graduating from high school, Rellik attended Ivy Tech
Community College and took a course on computers. Rellik did not complete a second
course because of “paranoid ideas.”

Employment: While in high school, Rellik worked part-time in a BP gas station as a
cashier. Rellik kept the job two to three months after high school, but has not worked since;
Rellik attributes this to his/her “schizophrenia.”

Legal History: Rellik has no juvenile record. At age 18, Rellik had one arrest for being on
the roof of a school. Rellik was placed on probation as a result of that incident.

Drug and Alcohol Use: Rellik claims to have first consumed alcohol at age 13, drinking
about once a month in high school, both to be sociable and “to get a buzz.” Pat Rellik
apparently urged Rellik to cut down on the alcohol use because he/she was using too much.
Rellik did not have any blackouts. Rellik has not used any illegal drugs.

Medical History: Rellik reported having a tonsillectomy in the 3rd or 4th grade, but
otherwise has been healthy.

Recreational Activity: Rellik’s primary recreational activity since age 10 has been playing
video games. Rellik claims that the games made him/her feel better because he/she could
“escape into another world and forget about my problems.” Rellik says it also reduced
tension. Rellik said that playing video games had no effect on his/her hallucinations. Rellik
plays action games that involve the “use of strategy and have realistic graphics.” I asked
Rellik about which video games he/she took to Las Vegas when he/she was captured. Rellik
said, “I just grabbed a bunch.” Rellik said that he/she did not pick out his/her favorites.
Rellik could not recall what games were in the hotel room when captured. When I asked
Rellik directly whether he/she had ever played “Contract Killer” and “World Destruction,”


                                              4
Rellik replied that he/she had played them, but didn’t like them. Rellik acknowledged that
the games involved sniper shooting. Rellik then acknowledged that he/she had taken those
games with him/her to Las Vegas. Rellik also admitted that although he/she had previously
said that he/she never played a game in which the protagonist shot innocent people, he/she
had actually done so. Rellik was positive that he/she had never played a game in which
persons could be shot from an overpass.

Psychiatric History: Rellik reported that at about age 10, after Chris Rellik died, and Pat
and Lee Rellik moved from Greenwood to Beech Grove, Rellik noticed that satellite dishes
were left by the former owner. Rellik developed the idea that hidden cameras were installed
in the bathroom at the home. Rellik chose not to share this thought with anyone else. Rellik
described it as a “suspicion.” Rellik had this idea intermittently about a couple of months
each year between the ages of 10 and 16. Rellik reported that at the age of 16 the idea
dissipated. When Rellik moved again at age 18, the belief reappeared and has been present
to some degree ever since. Rellik reported that due to his/her belief in hidden cameras,
Rellik was self-conscious in his/her own home. Rellik did not reveal these ideas to anyone
until his/her 2005 psychiatric hospitalization.

        Rellik related the events leading to hospitalization at Doctors’ Hospital in October,
2005. Rellik believed that he/she could communicate with celebrities because he/she was
thinking of them. Rellik gave the example of a belief that Leonardo DiCaprio said to Rellik
directly, “Are you watching this?” Rellik is sometimes convinced that the voices are real and
sometimes not. Rellik said that sometimes the voices instruct him/her to do something, but
he/she could not provide an example. He/she explicitly stated that the voices never
convinced him/her to fire a gun. Rellik denied ever having any hallucinations other than
auditory.

        Rellik believed that people on TV knew private things about him/her because secret
cameras were recording what he/she was doing. Rellik believed that people on TV were
talking to him/her directly. Rellik said he/she followed Oprah’s advice transmitted through
the TV to take down paneling to look for the hidden cameras. Rellik said that TV messages
had been occurring intermittently, and Rellik was convinced the cameras were present rather
than it being just a suspicion. Rellik believed that the cameras were sending pictures of
him/her to neighbors because “they were all in on it.” When I asked Rellik to explain
further, Rellik said that he/she believed that the neighbors had been cloned and were out to
destroy the world. When I mentioned to Rellik that this idea was not reported in his/her
psychiatric reports previously, Rellik said that the psychiatrists were part of the conspiracy.

        Rellik said that he/she never believed that he/she had any special powers. He/she
never believed that God talked to him/her directly. Rellik said that he/she never believed that
he/she might be shot by the conspiracy so he/she was not fearful. Rellik did not feel the need
to carry weapons to protect himself/herself from those in the conspiracy.

        Rellik reported that since his/her hospitalization in 2005 he/she has been under the
care of Dr. Schap at Wellness Mental Health Clinic. Rellik intermittently has been off anti-
psychotic medication. Rellik reported that for the year before he/she was arrested in January,
2007, he/she had not taken any medication. Although Pat Rellik would give him/her


                                               5
medication, Rellik would spit it out after pretending to take it. Rellik claims that he/she did
this as part of his/her hallucination that people were being cloned and he/she believed that the
medication was part of the cloning process. Rellik also felt that the medication had a
backward effect which caused him/her to feel worse. Rellik said that he/she did not tell Dr.
Schap that he/she was non-compliant with the medication because the appointments were
rushed and he/she did not want to get into the reasons. Rellik stated that he/she consciously
lied to Dr. Schap about not hearing voices. Rellik said that it was easier to lie to them than to
get into a conversation about his/her symptoms.

       Rellik reported that he/she was taking Risperdal at the time of my evaluation.

Mental Status Examination: Rellik was seen in the Collins County jail. Rellik was neatly
dressed in prison garb and showed adequate hygiene. Rellik was cooperative during the
examination. At times, Rellik reported being anxious, and looked quite anxious. On two
occasions Rellik reported that he/she might throw up because of increased anxiety. On those
occasions, I gave Rellik a break from my inquiries for an hour or so each time. Rellik’s
thoughts were clear and logical during the majority of the interview. At times, Rellik’s
thinking was convoluted and difficult to understand. Rellik became especially anxious when
I asked about the shootings. Rellik was oriented to time, place, and person. Rellik could
accurately name the last four presidents. Rellik showed adequate judgment about
hypothetical questions, and showed the capacity for abstract thinking.

Summary of Interview with Pat Rellik: Pat Rellik reported that he/she first observed
psychiatric symptoms in Lee Rellik in 2005. In retrospect, Pat saw Lee becoming withdrawn
from friends at age 11 or 12. Pat said that Lee thought voices on TV were talking to
him/her. On one occasion Lee asked Pat if Pat had heard Howard Stearn just tell him/her to
do something. When Pat said no, Lee would not discuss it further. In October 2005, Lee was
taking mirrors and paneling off walls to look for hidden cameras. These symptoms led to
his/her hospitalization. Pat stated that Lee would not go into a psychiatric hospital
voluntarily. Pat deliberately made up a story about Lee being violent and choking Pat in
order to get Lee involuntarily hospitalized.

        Pat stated that Lee presented ongoing problems with non-compliance of the anti-
psychotic medication. Pat exercised tough love by forcing Lee to take the medication. Pat
reported that in the several months prior to Lee’s arrest in January 2007, Pat was giving Lee
the anti-psychotics each night. Pat said that Lee often made excuses to go downstairs with
the medication in his/her hand. At times when Lee put it in his/her mouth, he/she would
excuse himself/herself to go to the bathroom. Pat suspected that Lee was actually taking the
medication only some of the time, but chose not to confront Lee. Pat reported that when Lee
took Zyprexa, Lee did much better. However, due to side effects of weight gain, Lee went
back to taking Risperdal.

       Lee did not tell Pat Rellik about any conspiracy theory or thoughts of people being
cloned for world domination. Lee only mentioned to Pat that Lee heard demonic voices, and
those voices talked about spying on Lee. Lee believed that someone was controlling the TV.




                                               6
        According to Pat, Lee also talked about the “powers that be, watching us,” referring
to government officials watching us from satellites. Lee was particularly distrustful of the
police. Pat said that Lee has never given up talking about satellites and being watched. Pat
reported that when they moved to their most recent address that Lee appeared excessively
bothered by noise. Lee was upset by the neighbors who played a radio loud in a van. On
occasion Lee asked the neighbors to reduce the volume but it would be loud again the next
night. Lee was upset enough that he/she wanted to move. Pat attempted to sell the house,
and Lee was upset a couple of months later when a potential sale fell through. In the year
before Lee was arrested, he/she was not talking about voices. Lee might say, “I don’t feel so
good” or refer to his/her head hurting. According to Pat, in the 12 months before his/her
arrest, Lee seemed to be in an “episode” 75% of the time. When asked if Lee could hide
his/her illness, Pat responded that “Lee didn’t have a problem going to the store to get
something and talking to people.”

        Pat reported Lee spent a great deal of time playing video games, up to 8-10 hours
each day. Some of these games were “shooter games.” Pat said that Lee generally played a
game until he/she mastered each level of the game. Pat said that in one of the games it is
possible to stop on a bridge and do the shooting from there. Lee had little interest in
television. Pat thought that Lee had trouble concentrating on television.

        At the time of the I-65 shootings, Pat told Lee to be careful. Pat mentioned to Lee
that a woman had been killed by the shooter. Pat said that Lee replied, “Oh, wow, really?”
Pat believed Lee was genuinely surprised. Pat stated that Lee was never violent. Lee did not
show any temper and never raised his/her voice. Pat did find a gun in Lee’s room and some
spent shell casings in Lee’s car. Pat removed the Beretta from the room, but did not know
that Lee had another one. When Pat asked about it, Lee said it was from target practice. Pat
said it was hard to talk to Lee, because Lee often didn’t answer you.

       Lee receives $500 a month for Social Security benefits, which goes for health
insurance and the rest for spending money.

Summary of Police Report: Lee Rellik was arrested in Las Vegas on January 18, 2007, at
2:45 a.m. Prior to the arrest, but after fleeing Kentucky, Lee cut and dyed his/her hair.
Rellik was arrested with guns, rounds, cash, MegaGame console and the games “Contract
Killer” and “World Destruction.” Lee told police officer Terry Quinn that Pat told him/her
that the police were going to test his/her guns and after that he/she took off to Las Vegas
because “it looked bad for him/her.” Lee was “responsive, alert, conversant, and not in an
emotional, psychotic or detached state.”

        Lee told investigating officer Quinn that he/she rented the room for a week. The
clerk said that Lee appeared “very normal.” The registration card was filled out incorrectly,
either because Lee made some mistakes or was hopeful to prevent detection. Lee paid cash
for the room. Lee was gambling prior to the arrest. Lee learned to play three-card poker
after arriving in Las Vegas and won $40.

        Lee admitted to the shootings. Lee described to the police the first time he/she shot at
a driver on I-65 and that the first location was closest to his/her house. Lee told the


                                               7
investigator that he/she constantly heard voices that harassed him/her. Lee said that he/she
believed there was a conspiracy. One day in July 2006 when Lee was working on the deck, a
piece of wood struck him/her on the head. Lee decided that he/she would drive to an
overpass and drop a 2-foot to 3-foot 4 X 4 piece of wood onto the Interstate. Lee said that
he/she did it mostly to control the voices. Lee explained to the investigating officers that
he/she thought “if you’re going to do this to me, then this is what I’m going to do.” Lee told
investigator Quinn that the decision followed a build-up of anger and frustration toward those
who were harassing him/her. Lee indicated that by throwing things off the overpasses or
shooting at people that he/she was letting “them” know that he/she had the ability to strike
back. Lee said that before he/she dropped the wood, he/she knew that the driver wouldn’t
like it. Lee wanted the voices to stop. Lee said that at the time he/she threw the first piece of
wood, Lee was actually not hearing voices at the time, but knew that he/she was the victim of
the harassing conspiracy because of what was said on television. Lee said that the voices
were reduced after doing something from the overpasses. Lee said that when he/she dropped
the wood or did any of the shootings, he/she did not want to hurt anyone directly. But,
he/she added that “I caved in and did it.” After dropping the piece of wood over the overpass
and shooting at the vehicles, Lee felt relief. When asked by investigating officer Quinn how
Lee first got the idea of dropping something or shooting from an overpass, Lee responded
that he/she had no idea and could not think of any TV show or video game which gave
him/her the idea.

        Lee was asked why he/she stopped throwing items from the overpass and started
shooting. Lee replied that he/she had run out of materials to throw off the overpass. Lee
purchased his/her first gun on May 3, 2006, and his/her second gun on September 30, 2006.
Rellik reported that he/she felt bad about throwing things from the overpass because “it could
hurt someone.” Lee Rellik told officers that he/she contemplated suicide and bought the gun
for that purpose, but later believed that Dave Letterman could read his/her mind through the
television and took away his/her desire to commit suicide.

Lee Rellik’s Account of the Criminal Conduct: Lee Rellik admitted to throwing wooden
planks and bricks from highway overpasses starting in July 2006. Lee stated that he/she did
not want to hurt anyone. I also asked Rellik if he/she had any concerns because the shootings
might harm someone. Lee replied that he/she developed that concern toward the end of the
shootings in November 2006. Lee said that he/she fired a bullet through the car door and
then became aware of just how dangerous it was. Lee stopped the shootings a couple of
weeks later. Lee said that he/she was not aware that Barbara Johnson had died from his/her
shooting. (Pat Rellik indicated that Lee was aware of the death from the shooting because it
had been discussed one night at dinner.)

        Lee said that when he/she put the piece of wood into the car, he/she knew that he/she
was going to drive to the overpass a few miles away. Lee did not tell Pat about it because
he/she knew Pat would not approve. Lee also did not tell Pat about purchasing a gun because
Lee believed that Pat would not allow the gun in the house. Lee hid the gun in the house.
Lee stated that he/she left his/her car running on the overpass and took only about 10 seconds
to throw the wood or shoot at someone. Lee immediately drove home. I asked why Lee left
immediately after a shooting and Lee replied that “I had nothing else to do there.” Lee was
not fearful of being caught if he/she remained at the location. When I asked why he/she was


                                               8
not fearful of being caught in view of the fact that he/she knew what he/she was doing was
against the law, Rellik replied, “I don’t know.” I asked why Rellik changed overpass
locations after publicity about increased police controls and surveillance cameras, and Lee
replied it was “to mix it up a little bit, but not to avoid being caught.”

       Lee stated that the voices inside his/her head made him/her do it. Lee explained that
through the television and the video games that he/she heard voices talking directly to
him/her that people were being cloned and that they were going to take over the world and
destroy us. Lee said the voices from the video games gave him/her ideas that it was up to
him/her to save the world and to help keep innocent people from suffering. Lee said that
he/she did not tell the police officer this when he/she was arrested because “they” are part of
the conspiracy. Lee said that he/she doesn’t trust police officers. Rellik reported that the
shots were to scare the clones so that they would go away. Rellik reported that his/her
motivation for the shootings was the same for all of the shootings.

        I asked Lee if he/she would have carried out his/her illegal acts if a policeman had
been on the overpass and Lee said that he/she probably would not because he/she knew
he/she would get in trouble and be arrested. I asked Lee whether he/she believed that the
shooting was against the law. Lee said that he/she did know it was against the law when
he/she did the shootings. I asked him/her whether he/she believed the shootings were
morally right. Lee said that he/she did the shootings because it helped save the world from
the clones.

        I asked Rellik whether he/she took any steps to avoid being captured. Lee said that
he/she never took any steps to avoid being apprehended. Rellik said that sometimes it didn’t
matter if he/she got caught, and other times it did matter. When it did matter, Lee explained
that he/she wanted to avoid getting in trouble for firing a gun because he/she knew it could
cause him/her to be sent to prison. I asked about Pat talking to him/her about the police
checking the ballistics on the gun. Lee said that he/she told Pat it was okay because he/she
had not been involved in the shootings. Lee said that this was a conscious lie to avoid
arousing Pat’s suspicion. I also asked Lee why he/she left town and went to Vegas. Lee said
that he/she was “bored with the shooting” and wanted “a little adventure vacation.” Lee
explained that the stay in Vegas was for one week. On his/her return, Lee planned to shoot a
couple of times in each state he/she drove through. Rellik maintained that he/she did not
leave town because he/she was fearful of being arrested. Rellik said that he/she did not tell
Pat because he/she wouldn’t approve of the vacation. Rellik added, “I thought I was the only
person living and everyone else is just there as a backdrop.”

        I asked Rellik why he/she took $4,000 in cash advances on credit cards. Lee replied,
“to strike it rich in Vegas.” I asked Rellik whether he/she tried to hide his/her identity when
he/she went to Vegas. Lee replied that he/she made no effort to hide his/her identity and that
he/she was unaware that there was a police bulletin out for him/her. Lee changed his/her hair
because it was “part of the adventure of the vacation, to try something new and outrageous.”
He/she used cash for the hotel room because he/she prefers to use cash when he/she has it. I
asked Rellik about his/her remark to the police officer that he/she left Kentucky because
he/she knew things would not look good for him/her if the ballistics matched. Rellik replied
that he/she never said that.

Psychiatric Diagnosis: Paranoid Schizophrenia.

Lee Rellik’s paranoid schizophrenia is manifested by delusions of persecution, auditory
hallucinations, ideas of reference, and emotional constriction. It has interfered with his/her
ability to be employed.

Opinion: It is my opinion that Lee Rellik did suffer from a severe mental disease, paranoid
schizophrenia, during the times that he/she engaged in the shooting behavior resulting in the
criminal charges. However, it is my further opinion that at the time of each of the shootings
which resulted in criminal charge, Rellik’s schizophrenia did not prevent him/her from
knowing the wrongfulness of his/her acts. It is my further belief that the reference to the
video games as controlling the defendant’s behavior are a recent fabrication, as such
hallucinations were never reported to Rellik’s treating psychiatrist, family member, or the
investigating officer when captured.

X City         County          X Adult        Juvenile


Case # 1879320
Arrestee’s Name (Last, First): Rellik, Lee

Arrestee’s Address: 301 Angus Drive, Harrisonville, KY

Charges:   Murder, Attempted Murder in Kentucky

Date of Arrest: 01/18/07
Time of Arrest: 2:45 a.m.
Location of Arrest: MGM Grand Hotel, Las Vegas, NV

Narrative of Circumstances of Arrest:

Rellik had been the subject of a publicized national manhunt.
The subject’s name and face had been circulated nationally as
a person wanted in the I-65 serial shootings that had occurred
over a four-month period in Kentucky. LVPD had received a tip
from an auto mechanic at Jiffy Lube on Tropicana Blvd. in the
City that the subject and the subject’s vehicle had been
identified and that the subject gave contact information of
the MGM Grand Hotel. The mechanic’s suspicions were raised
when the subject said the vehicle needed to be repaired so
that he/she could “complete his/her mission” and return to
Kentucky because “people are not who they appear to be.”

At the time of the arrest, the subject was in his/her hotel
room. Located in the room with the subject: a 9 mm Beretta
with four pistol magazines, three of which were loaded with 10
rounds each, 50 9 mm Winchester bullets, a roll of duct tape,
and $4,694 in cash. Also found in the subject’s hotel room, a
MegaGames console with two video games: "Contract Killer” and
“World Destruction.” The subject had draped towels over the
mirrors in the room and had a “Do Not Disturb” sign hung on
the doorknob.

On January 18, 2007, at 4:30 a.m. the hotel clerk that checked
in the subject was interviewed. The hotel clerk said that the
subject appeared “very normal” and did nothing out of the
ordinary. The hotel clerk noted that the subject arrived on


                               13
January 14 and asked to have a room for one week. The subject
paid for the hotel room in advance in cash. The registration
card was filled out incorrectly. The subject purchased a
player card for award points at the hotel and so the subject’s
activities were reviewed subsequent to the arrest. It was
noted that the subject did gamble at the hotel. The day before
the subject’s arrest he/she had played three-card poker and
won $400. The subject also played black jack, craps, and the
slot machines.

After being advised of his/her Miranda rights, the subject
refused to talk to anyone except the investigating officer
from Kentucky. Officer Terry Quinn of the Collins County
Sheriff’s Dept. was contacted at 6:30 a.m. on January 18,
2007. Subject was placed under suicide watch until Officer
Quinn arrived.

Supplement to Arrest Report:

Officer Quinn from the Sheriff’s Dept. for Collins County,
Kentucky arrived on January 18, 2007, at LVPD at 4:30 p.m.
Officer Quinn reviewed the Arrest Report and then conducted an
interview of the subject at LVPD. The subject was released in
the custody of Officer Quinn, who returned with the subject by
air to Harrisonville, Kentucky.

             INVESTIGATOR                    Terry Quinn



QUINN    Q    My understanding is that they went ahead and read you your
              Constitutional Rights, you said you understood all that, and that’s my
              understanding, is that correct?
RELLIK   A    Uh, yeah.
QUINN    Q    Okay, that’s alright, just wanted to make sure we understood it, and there
              was no problem there; and they said that you asked for Kentucky officers
              to come down, is that correct?
RELLIK   A    Well, I didn’t specifically ask for Kentucky officers, but…*
QUINN    Q    Who’d you ask for specifically, do you remember?
RELLIK   A    Uh, well _________________*
QUINN    Q    Don’t remember who you asked for?
RELLIK   A    No, I didn’t really ask for anybody really, I just
QUINN    Q    Someone told me something that you said something about.......
RELLIK   A    Well I’d rather talk, talk to the persons that do the investigation




                                        18
QUINN    Q   That’s me. I’m the lead investigator on the whole situation. And uh, that’s,
             that’s why they indicated to us to come out. So I jumped on a plane so I
             could come out and see you and sit and talk with you for awhile about this
             situation, cause we definitely want to hear your side of the story and get to
             know you better, and that’s why I came out.
RELLIK   A   Right.
QUINN    Q   So I could sit and talk to you. But I want to make sure you understood that,
             you know, your Constitutional Rights; you can have an attorney, and you
             didn’t have to tell me anything that was read to you. And they said you
             were being very cooperative and that you understood all that, uh, do you
             know what today is?
RELLIK   A   Uh, I believe today is Thursday.
QUINN    Q   Yep, do you know the date?
RELLIK   A   Uh, 17th or something?
QUINN    Q   That’s very good; it’s the 18th. . That’s pretty good, and what kind of car
             did you drive out here?
RELLIK   A   Mini Cooper.
QUINN    Q   Okay. So everything else is doing pretty good now; um, I guess we need
             to go ahead and start talking. I’m going to leave it up to you to kind of fill
             me in on several things that I’ve been missing and trying to figure out how
             we’re going to do it. And, you know, I got a lot of the puzzle here; I got, I
             got a great big puzzle here in front of me, and it’s got holes in it
             everywhere. I can’t figure all the little pieces out, and you’re the only one
             that has a key to all these puzzles. Did you know that? I’d like to start
             back when, when’d you buy your first gun?
RELLIK   A   Um, uh, probably, been awhile.
QUINN    Q   Been awhile, don’t remember the first one?
RELLIK   A   I don’t know.
QUINN    Q   Okay, alright, what was the first gun that you bought? What kind was it?
RELLIK   A   I believe it was a Beretta.
QUINN    Q   A Beretta, you like Berettas?
RELLIK   A   No, well _____
QUINN    Q   No?
RELLIK   A   Not any more than any of the other guns.



                                       19
QUINN    Q   A gun’s gun? I didn’t know if you like one particular type of gun or
             anything like that, better than another.
RELLIK   A   No.
QUINN    Q   No, okay. Um, you bought the guns and then
RELLIK   A   (unintelligible)
QUINN    Q   Huh? You understand how to load it, and stuff like that, take care of
             them?
RELLIK   A   No, I mean as far as you know ______________, no, I don’t understand,
             I’ve only had six hours of sleep so
QUINN    Q   Yeah, they said you were sleeping a little bit this morning, before I got
             here to get to see you a little bit. If you want to smoke, go ahead; don’t
             pay attention to me or anything. Is this your sandwich?
RELLIK   A   Yeah.
QUINN    Q   If you want to eat, we can sit here and eat together. Anything you want to
             do, we’ll just sit here and talk and kick it for awhile, okay? I guess, you
             know, I have to ask you a few of the questions. And I think, I think you
             are looking to make yourself feel better in a lot of ways here getting this
             off your chest. I know you’ve been carrying this around with you for
             awhile. And you know what’s been going on, and it’s had to bother you
             inside. Would that be a pretty fair assessment of what’s been going on?
RELLIK   A   Uh
QUINN    Q   Would that be kind of accurate in stating that it’s been bothering you?
RELLIK   A   I, I wish I was ______________
QUINN    Q   Okay, yeah. I talked to your mother/father for awhile and uh, yeah, he/she
             said that you guys had talked about the shootings, and he/she seemed
             genuinely concerned, you know, about the whole situation. Did you ever
             confide in him/her and tell him/her quietly, you know, you were doing the
             shootings? Did you tell him/her that?
RELLIK   A   No.
QUINN    Q   You didn’t feel like you were comfortable telling him/her that?
RELLIK   A   No.
QUINN    Q   No. Are you pretty close to your dad/mom?
RELLIK   A   _______________ yeah.
QUINN    Q   Did you ever think about talking to your dad/mom about it?



                                      20
RELLIK   A   No.
QUINN    Q   Who did you trust the most? Who do you trust that you feel comfortable
             with?
RELLIK   A   Probably my dad/mom.
QUINN    Q   You want to see what I got? Did you want to see that one magazine?
RELLIK   A   Sure.
QUINN    Q   I thought you might think it’s cool. What kind of video games do you
             like?
RELLIK   A   All kinds of videos.
QUINN    Q   Is this a good one? Is this stuff any good?
RELLIK   A   Um, as far as the magazine goes
QUINN    Q   Right, as far as helping you with the games, ‘cause I never really played
             that many.’
RELLIK   A   Um, __________ magazine ________ - like magazine, I guess.
QUINN    Q   Okay, but they don’t give you good insight on the games?
RELLIK   A   Sometimes____________ good game
QUINN    Q   Is that what it is? Okay. One of the things that they said that you do want
             to talk to the, you know, lead investigator, so that’s what I wanted to sit
             here and chit chat with you about, anything that you wanted to talk about.
             Someone told me you felt at times like a lost soul, is that true?
RELLIK   A   A lost soul?
QUINN    Q   A lost soul, that’s what I thought someone said; maybe I didn’t quote them
             completely correctly, but I think that was what they inferred.
RELLIK   A   Um, _____________
QUINN    Q   Don’t you remember saying lost soul? Okay, maybe that’s not the right
             verbiage; maybe I gave the wrong type of words. Um, why did you decide
             to leave? Why did you take off?
RELLIK   A   Well, I had gotten a phone call asking if it was okay for the police
             department to do, uh, testing on, on the guns and uh _____
QUINN    Q   You and your dad/mom had a conversation about the guns, correct?
RELLIK   A   Right.




                                      21
QUINN    Q   And shortly after he/she gave the guns to the police, you decided to leave,
             is that what happened or what?
RELLIK   A   Yeah.
QUINN    Q   I don’t want to put words in your mouth if that’s, you know, what
             happened. I need you to talk to me about it. Why’d you leave? Why’d
             you decide to take off?
RELLIK   A   Um, cause I guess it looked bad for me that
QUINN    Q   With the guns?
RELLIK   A   Yeah.
QUINN    Q   You don’t....do you drink coffee?
RELLIK   A   ______ do I drink coffee?
QUINN    Q   Do you want some coffee? ‘Cause I think they’re going to bring us some
             coffee.
RELLIK   A   No, not right now.
QUINN    Q   No?
RELLIK   A   Well, ____________________
QUINN    Q   Okay, okay. Um, when you gave the guns up, did you know they were
             going to match?
RELLIK   A   No.
QUINN    Q   You didn’t think they’d match?
RELLIK   A   Uh uh.
QUINN    Q   Why not?
RELLIK   A   Because I didn’t shoot or anything
QUINN    Q   Because you didn’t shoot or anything?
RELLIK   A   Right.
QUINN    Q   Okay. Um, now let me ask you another question. Do you think that I flew
             all the way out here to see you and not know that you shot?
RELLIK   A   Uh ________ maybe, maybe ______ - a little suspicions
QUINN    Q   Well, I guess what I have to say to you, Lee, is I didn’t fly all the way out
             here because I didn’t think the guns would match; we know the guns
             match.



                                      22
RELLIK   A   ____________ necessarily that, well
QUINN    Q   What was it then?
RELLIK   A   I guess _________
QUINN    Q   No it’s not; you can tell me anything. I mean, if you were afraid, you can
             say, I was afraid.
RELLIK   A   Yeah, I, I really freaked out ____________
QUINN    Q   You want to take a longer nap?
RELLIK   A   Little nap ___________
QUINN    Q   See the problem I got, you and I got to sit here and talk for a little bit to
             figure out exactly what we’re going to do. Then, if you want to take a
             quick nap, take a long sleep, we can whatever you want. You’re the one
             that said you wanted to talk to investigators from Harrisonville. I came all
             the way out here so I could get to see you; I wanted to meet you.
RELLIK   A   Right.
QUINN    Q   Wanted to sit and talk with you, uh, and that’s why I’m here. I’m here for
             you. I need to, after we get done, what I was going to do when we get
             done here, I was going to make a phone call, let everybody know you’re
             doing well, you’re fine; but we need to cover a few things. You know
             what I’m saying?
RELLIK   A   Right.




                                      23
QUINN    Q   And the things, you need to be honest with me now so that I can figure out
             how to help you, okay? You can’t sit here and say oh, I didn’t do any
             shooting, which I know you did. So the thing of it is, you need to be
             honest within, you know, Lee. You’ve got to be honest with Lee now too.
             You got to make sure Lee is being honest with Lee. You can’t continue to
             say, oh, I don’t want to talk about that or that’s something else. The guns
             match, and it’s explainable why you decided to, you know, get in your car
             and leave; cause you didn’t want to have to deal with that which you knew
             eventually you’d have to deal with it eventually. But what we’re doing
             now is sitting and just discussing it. I don’t think that you understand what
             anybody thinks that you are a bad person or did anything that’s horrible; I
             think you’d find that you have a lot of support from your dad/mom. I’m
             not mad at you. I don’t want you to think that. The guys here are not mad
             at you for anything; out here in Las Vegas, there’s nobody that’s, you
             know, upset with you. So I want you to, you know, your dad/mom’s not
             mad; I spent quite a bit of time with your dad/mom. You have a lot of
             support. You have a lot of people who love you, okay, but one of the
             things we’ve got to do is, well, got to get through this, okay? And getting
             through this means that you have to be honest, you have to tell the truth
             about the situation. We know the guns matched; that’s not a puzzle. But
             the little bit of a puzzle there is, is what was going through your mind.
             What was going on when you were doing the shootings? That’s what we
             need to know about; that’s what I want you to share with me, if you would
             do that, so that way, I can understand you better. And, you know,
             eventually we’re going back to Kentucky. We’ll go together. You and I
             can go together; we can go back there and go through this with your family
             together. Do you understand what I’m saying? I mean is that pretty fair?
RELLIK   A   Yeah.
QUINN    Q   Do you remember the first time you shot?
RELLIK   A   Yeah.
QUINN    Q   When was the first time you shot?
             Uh, ____________________ six months
QUINN    Q   Six months? How did you like, like to do it? When you were driving, or
             did you like get stationary and stop, or did you just do it from the car, or
             how did you actually do the first shot?
RELLIK   A   (Heard no response)
QUINN    Q   Do you remember where the location was?
RELLIK   A   _________________ I mean it’s not, I can’t really explain it right now
             _______________




                                      24
QUINN    Q   Do you remember the first location? Do you remember if it was on like, I
             don’t know, what street, you know the road, you know the south end pretty
             well.
RELLIK   A   (Unintelligible)
QUINN    Q   Do you remember the first location it was from?
RELLIK   A   Um, probably_____________ closest to the house.
QUINN    Q   Closest to your house? I’ve got a map, just happened to bring a map with
             us. Would it be, would it be okay to bring my partner in? Or you just
             want it to be us that’s sitting here talking? Would that be okay or not? I’ll
             leave it up to you; that’s totally your call. We can just sit here and talk if
             you want, or I can ask him to come and sit over in the corner if you want,
             and he can take notes and stuff like that, or you just want it to be us or
             what? I’ll leave it up to you. It’ll be your call.
RELLIK   A   ___________________ right now.
QUINN    Q   Okay, you just rather it be us?
RELLIK   A   Yeah.
QUINN    Q   See, I got a map here, and where we’re at here, let’s see, it’s over here and
             you live, show me where you live at. This is I-65.
RELLIK   A   Right.
QUINN    Q   Okay, and then is that Peppernickel?
RELLIK   A   I’m not sure now.
QUINN    Q   I think you live up in here.
RELLIK   A   Yeah, maybe.
QUINN    Q   Okay, so if you had to pick one of these locations in here, which ones
             would you pick? This is pretty cool isn’t it; we put a lot of time and effort
             into making this look right. ___________ pretty good.
RELLIK   A   Uh, yeah.
QUINN    Q   It’s got some ______ little bit small.
RELLIK   A   Yeah.
QUINN    Q   You wear glasses?
RELLIK   A   No.
QUINN    Q   I’m starting to need glasses. I’m getting old, so pretty soon I’m going to
             have reading glasses to read with.


                                      25
RELLIK   A   Right.
QUINN    Q   You say it was around close to where you live, the first couple, you know,
             where, you said that’s where ________ you shot was around where you
             live?
RELLIK   A   Right.
QUINN    Q   Let me ask you this then. Do you remember being over on Brown Road?
             This was on a house; do you remember that date, anything that was going
             on that put you over there around Brown Road?
RELLIK   A   No, uh uh.
QUINN    Q   Okay, you don’t remember what you was doing over there? Let me ask
             you this. Why did you pick that one white house? Do you remember, was
             there anything specific about the house that stood out?
RELLIK   A   No.
QUINN    Q   Can’t remember much about that house? I saw some of your school
             pictures.
RELLIK   A   Oh, yeah?
QUINN    Q   Uh huh. Looked like you were pretty popular?
RELLIK   A   Yeah.
QUINN    Q   You like the car you got?
RELLIK   A   Uh, yeah.
QUINN    Q   Yeah, okay. Let’s go back to Brown Road here. Tell me about Brown
             Road. Do you remember the house, the white house?
RELLIK   A   Uh, no, uh uh
QUINN    Q   Can’t remember what brought you to the Brown house? Do you remember
             how many times you, you know, you shot at the Brown Road house; do
             you remember how many times; was it 1 time, was 10 times, was it, do
             you remember how many times?
RELLIK   A   Uh, no, well, I’d prefer, like not, not really to discuss anything really at
             this time.
QUINN    Q   At this moment, you want to get some rest?
RELLIK   A   Yeah.
QUINN    Q   Well alright, if you didn’t, you tell me you didn’t; if you did, I’d like to
             know, were you able to watch some TV?



                                       26
RELLIK   A   Yeah.
QUINN    Q   Okay, did you uh, how’d you feel about Ms. Johnson; do you remember
             Ms. Johnson?
RELLIK   A   I’m not sure who that is.
QUINN    Q   That was the woman who was driving in the car that, uh, I guess looked
             like maybe it was an accident, and the bullet accidentally took her life;
             remember that situation that was out on I-65?
RELLIK   A   Oh, uh
QUINN    Q   Remember that?
RELLIK   A   Yeah.
QUINN    Q   How do you feel about all that whole, how do you feel about that
             situation? Do you feel bad?
RELLIK   A   Um
QUINN    Q   I believe you, I would feel bad.
RELLIK   A   Right, um, yeah that’s
QUINN    Q   Wasn’t your intention, was it, for her to get hurt?
RELLIK   A   I would feel more confident in what I was saying if I had some rest.
QUINN    A   You want some sleep? Alright buddy, we’ll get you some sleep then. Let
             me see if the other officer’s out here.
ROSS     Q   Are you hungry?
RELLIK   A   (Heard no response)
QUINN    Q   I was impressed, very impressed with a lot of stuff that you were able to
             accomplish, and you went how long without ever getting caught? Think
             that was pretty good, don’t you think? How many months was that; you
             told me you shot first time about 6 months ago?
RELLIK   A   (Heard no response)
QUINN    Q   About 6 months ago, is that what you said? About 6, and not get caught,
             that’s a long time. Go ahead and eat, bud, we won’t bug you or talk to
             you; go ahead and eat.
RELLIK   A   No, uh. Yeah, that’s the reason why I’d kind of like to get some sleep.
             Seems like when I don’t have sleep, things come out, they tend not to
             really come out wrong, but maybe like a little mixed up there.
QUINN    Q   Okay, and you don’t want to have mix-ups right?


                                         27
RELLIK   A   Well, I mean, not really mix-ups, but it just feels like, uh, just feels like the
             past week has been, or the past 5 days really, it feels like long time
             ____________________
QUINN    Q   Okay, eat your pizza, eat your pizza. And, uh, we’ll go ahead and let you
             get you some sleep, and then we’ll talk again, is that fair?
RELLIK   A   Uh, yeah, uh,
QUINN    Q   Do you need something to drink?
RELLIK   A   I’ve got something. Well, since they’ve already taken
QUINN    Q   Who’s “they”?
RELLIK   A   The uh......you’re with like the Harrisonville Task Force, right?
QUINN    Q   Well actually the Task Force is led by the sheriff’s office and I’m the lead
             detective. When they heard that, they told us that you wanted to meet me,
             and I said, well, I’ll get on the plane and come right out and meet him; I
             don’t even have any clothes to wear, dude. I got on the plane just to come
             straight here to see you; I don’t even have underwear to wear. They said
             you wanted to see me, so I said I’ve been wanting to meet you, so I came
             right out to see you.
RELLIK   A   Yeah, um, I guess that’s true
QUINN    Q   What are you thinking Lee, what are you thinking about?
RELLIK   A   Uh, _______________________
QUINN    Q   Not much? You got a lot on your mind?
RELLIK   A   I guess it all depends on how you look at it, I guess.
QUINN    Q   Okay, explain it to me; tell me how you look at it. I mean, I’m here for
             you; I’m not going to any gambling joints or anything. I came out here to
             see you. Did you get to do any gambling, did you do any?
RELLIK   A   Yeah, a little bit.
QUINN    Q   What did you do?
RELLIK   A   Put a little, little 3-card poker
QUINN    Q   Did you, how’d you do with it, did you?
RELLIK   A   I’m even.
QUINN    Q   Hey, if you can leave here with some money and have a good time, then
             you did good. Got a bunch of people that come out here and they lose
             their money.



                                        28
 ROSS          Q    I’ve never been before.
 QUINN         Q    It’s your first time. I’ve been here before, but I never gambled. I just
                    came and saw the sights and looked around, that’s all I did, so yeah. Tell
                    me what you were thinking.
 RELLIK        A    Well________________________ - was sleepy, but I guess I can go a
                    little longer without sleep, but since, since I guess everything is done in
                    Las Vegas, I guess, I guess one of the, can you
 QUINN         Q    You ask me anything, I’ll tell you. Aren’t you hungry?
 RELLIK        A    No.

                              November 15, 2006, 911 Call


      Operator: Hello. This is 911.

      Cline: My grandma’s been shot. What can I do? What can I do?

      Operator: Are you in any present danger?

      Cline: No, but I’m not sure. I think the shooter is gone. The shooter is nuts. He/she

      looked like something out of Night of the Living Dead. . . . a zombie.

      Operator: Try to stay calm. Where is your location?

      Cline: I’m on I-65 at the 211 mile marker in a black Taurus. What should I do?

      Operator: What is her status?

      Cline: I don’t think she’s breathing. Help me. I feel so helpless. It was such a

      beautiful day.

      Operator: You're doing great. EMTs are on their way.
