On July 16, 1999 J.T. Colfax appeared on the Peter Boyles Radio show
"I think some dentures are going to drop in tea cups now, but... I had been doing an internet thing. My friend
who got out of jail started putting my daily postings on the internet. He did a lot of work and everything, but
we've had control issues, and I need to separate from this case, so that's why I have to do this so he stops using
my name to contact people...my friend Lance Matthews is going to be angry, I'll still call him my friend. He
contacts people, he's called PB at home"
"Anyway, he somehow has gotten in contact with Pam Paugh all along while I was in jail there, during the
portion when I was on the internet for 9 months. And he surrepticiously recorded her and at her suggestion (he
played it to me over the phone) she suggested that he and I go to the Governor's office with information on other
inmates as alternative suspects."
"The snippet I heard was....he told her about some information about a party that was near the Ramsey house.
It's an interesting story I posted about....cause that's what this all relates to...and she suggested that we aid them
in taking it to the governor's office...and I didn't hear her say this, but I assume it would be to make some sort of
big deal about it and bypass the DA. But I don't understand why they would have a problem with the DA."
"She said "Why don't you guys" and Lance is telling her things about what I've told him about other inmates,
and she's saying "Why don't you guys take that to the governor's office?"

(jameson) Hi anthas
(Brijette) yopu better be careful, Matthews, what are the laws in NY concerning wiretapping?
(matthews) she never asked me to "get her info"
(jameson) But I am not defending him for playing it
(jameson) STILL - consider what was said
*** CarolinaG has joined #webbsleuths

(jameson) Polly and Pam both support Patsy - Polly has kids she wants to protect
