Thanks, Lightningbug. Copies have been made, and there might be a few transcripts as well. I only had one microcassette with me and that was only out of habit. I didn't expect to record DeCamp or anyone else for that matter. When the tape ran out and I was observing Tyrell I called a friend and let my cell phone run so she could listen in. Jim Rothstein knows DeCamp and so I made contact with him during all of this so I could tell him what I was observing.
I have formed my opinion about the character or John DeCamp & Associates based on their behavior, their conversations in my presence and observations of the physical environment, which do not jive with the image John DeCamp portrays in his book.
Thank you for that Paloma, and for the book you recommended.
I think this is important information, because it is behavioural - what someone saw and heard and recorded.
deCamp sounds like someone who appears to have very different sides - he appeared quite congruent in his videos (although extremely cautious round a couple of subjects). I can imagine a certain amount of 'ambulance humour' to stay sane around the subject, however your description of his behaviour certianly sounded very inappropriate.
Regarding Jim Rothstein, is it true that he and Ted Gunderson were very close friends? I seemed to remember deCamp saying the three of them were good friends.
