5670Re: Klemp's 1983 Personal and Confidential Letter to Gross
- Jan 9, 2011Hello All,
I just read this info on
Darwin in a private email:
"Darwin also married Carole Roddick
from London England in early 80s.
Marriage may have lasted up to 1yr.
(I know this first hand, as met her
several times when she was D's wife)
After marriage fell apart, Carole left
ekult. Following this, I heard (third
hand) she had many mental health
issues (not surprising, eh!)"
