On the way back to Virginia- -in the police car after his arrest in South Carlina- -Earl Bramblett was kicking himself.
He shouldn't have talked to that newspaper reporter. That's what he told the state police agent who'd spent two years investigating the arson and murder of an entire family in Vinton.

(( At the time Barry Kessee didn't know what Bramblett was talking about.
Then the story came out in the newspaper.
Bramblett had questioned whether all the Hodges family members were really dead.
"I had a gut feeling," reporter Diane Struzzi quoted Bramblett as saying... "that possibly Winter, Anah and maybe Blaine were in a witness protection program and that they were alive and well."
"I knew something happened to Teresa," Bramblett said, because a Hodges relative told him gasoline had been sprinkled around her body.
Nobody else knew that until the state crime lab determine there was gasoline on and around Teresa Hodges' body.
Relatives of the Hodges family didn't know that, says prosecutor Skip Burkart.
"Only the killer could know," he says.))
