RAW: David Camm's call for help to ISP

Posted: Updated:

LEBANON, Ind. (WDRB) -- The first testimony in David Camm's third murder trial in the death of his wife and two children centers around his call for help.

The night his wife and two children were found dead at their Georgetown, Ind., home, Camm dialed Indiana State Police rather than 911. This was four months after he resigned from state police.

WDRB obtained the raw audio of that call. Below is a transcript.


Ind. State Police: Can I help you?

Camm: Patrice, it's Dave Camm. Let me talk to post command right now.

ISP: Okay, he's on another line. 

Camm: (inaudible) Let me talk to post command. 

ISP: Hold on.  Dave? 

Camm:  Get everybody out here to my house, now. 

ISP: Okay. Alright. 

Camm:  My wife and my kids are dead. Get everybody out to my house. 

ISP: (talking off phone) Okay, David, we got people on the way okay? 

Camm: Get everybody out here.

ISP: Everything is going to be okay, alright. We're going to get you... 

Camm:  Everything is not going to be okay.  Get everybody out here now. (crying) 

ISP: They're coming. Go to Dave Camm's house, now. 

Camm:  (crying) (inaudible)

ISP: Do you know what happened, David? 

Camm:  No. (crying) They're dead. I just got home from playing basketball. They're dead.

ISP: (radio chatter) 

Camm:  Oh my God. What am I gonna do? 

ISP: Huh? 

Camm:  (crying) 

ISP: David, they're on their way right now, okay? 

Camm: They're dead.

ISP: I got everybody coming, okay?  Listen, I'm gonna let you talk to Patrice while I get people

Camm:  I can't talk to Patrice. I gotta get some help.  (inaudible)... to my parent's house. 

ISP: Okay, David, do you need an ambulance? 

Camm: Get everybody out here. 

ISP: Do you need an ambulance?

Camm:  I gotta go! 

ISP: Dave? He hung up.
