Bledsoe told his mother he didn’t kill Arfmann

April 26, 2000


— Days after his arrest for the murder of Camille Arfmann, Floyd S. Bledsoe called his mother, Catherine, from jail.

She testified Wednesday morning in her son's trial on felony charges of first-degree murder, aggravated kidnapping and aggravated indecent liberties with a child.

Her other son, Tom, had originally been charged in the crime, but authorities dismissed those charges and charged Floyd instead.

In her tesimony today, Floyd's mother said he called her from jail a few days after being charged.

"He said 'I didn't do it.' I said, 'Well Tom didn't do it.' He said 'I know Tom didn't do it,'" the mother testified this morning.

But Floyd had a theory as to who killed Camille Arfmann.

"He said, 'Maybe Dad did it.' I said 'Floyd, that's not true,'" she said.

Most of the rest of the testimony this morning was about scientific and physical evidence recovered from the scene where Arfmann's body was found.
