should I believe you? How do I know you didn’t already tell them every-
thing?’ ”

So John had to convince them that he hadn’t told the cops anything.

TOM LANGE: John probably felt that he’d go up to Nash and say, “Hey, I
didn’t tell ’em anything. They had me for days, and they have no idea
what the hell they’re doing, and I didn’t tell ’em a damn thing, Eddie.”

That’s probably why he went up there.

DAWN SCHILLER: John played the bluff—he swore that he had someone
waiting for him, that if he wasn’t back—and he was already late—he had
a bunch of letters addressed to a bunch of different people, ready to go.

I think a thousand dollars is what John was going to ask Eddie for.
So Eddie ended up letting him go after begging for his life, and we were

supposed to come back in an hour and check the mailbox. Immediately I
said, “Fuck it. There’s a bomb. It’s a fucking booby trap! We’re going to
go up, and they’re going to get us both! Let’s not go!”

TOM LANGE: John Holmes tells me on the one hand that Eddie Nash was
the killer, and then he goes up there for dope. This is the type of person
you can’t trust—once they start talking out of both sides of their mouth.

DAWN SCHILLER: So we went up to Eddie Nash’s. John pulled the car up—I
got down underneath the blankets in the back—and John jumped out.

I didn’t see him walking, but I heard his footsteps. I heard a mailbox
open and close, and he came right back into the car, then we took off as
fast as hell.

I opened the envelope, and there was five hundred dollars. It was only
half of what we asked for.

SHARON HOLMES: John called and said, “We’re going to be leaving tonight.
Meet me at the Safeway again.”

So I met him there. He asked me again if I would go with him, and I
said, “No, I won’t.” Then I went over to Dawn—because I thought he was
going to beg and plead again—and said, “I’m sorry I turned my back on
him.” I hugged her and said, “Take care of yourself, and take care of him
the best you can.” Then I walked over to my car, watched them leave, and
went home.

That was the last I saw of John—for a while.

DAWN SCHILLER: Then we took off. It was really bizarre because once we
started getting out of the area we got in a better mood. We just played
some music and drove through the desert.

The sun was coming up the next morning—you know that dusky light?

“Think This Will Fuck Up My Fourth of July Weekend?” 305

Well, a hawk �ew in front of us, and we hit it and killed it. John �ipped
out. He said that from a hunter�s point of view�and John was a hunter�
that this was a very bad omen. He got really pale about that; it was like a
really bad sign.

There was a long silence after that.
