Merriam-Webster defines allegations as… an assertion unsupported and by implication regarded as unsupportable
We are not presenting allegations, these are the facts supported by LEGALLY RECORDED words and actions of the people involved.
On November 1, 2009, Kevin Walters was a member of Keaukaha Canoe Club, whose other members included Judge Lloyd Van De Carr and numerous other court officers.
On November 3, 2009 Carrie was charged with assault based solely upon statements Kevin made and the fact that he had a wound. The video was recovered on November 10, 2009.
The following is Kevin’s numerous differing ALLEGATIONS made regarding this incident:
Police Report #1
11-01-09 @ 7:26 p.m. – Officer Hatada
[Kevin] did state that on the evening of 11-01-2009 sometime just prior to police arrival, he had been on the telephone at his residence located at [address]. While he was on the phone, he stated that his ex-wife who he identified to me as Carrie Walters was insistent that he get off the phone. Kevin informed me that because he remained on the phone, his wife began to become agitated.
It was at this time that Kevin stated that he then hung up the phone and stood up from where he was seated in front of his computer. At this time, he observed his wife come from the kitchen area of this residence and strike him in the abdomen with a “blunt object.”
11-01-2009 @ 8:32 p.m. – ER Staff
[Kevin] does not recall what happened. The patient appears intoxicated and is unable to give a reliable history at this time. Poor historian because he does not recall being stabbed.
Due to the increase in domestic violence, we ask all patients: Are you being hurt, hit or frightened by anyone at home or in your life?
Domestic violence survey shows NEGATIVE risk for this patient.
Police Report #2
11-01-09 @ 9:05 p.m. – Officer Domingo (at ER)
[Kevin] related to [Officer Domingo] that [Carrie] wanted him to call up his doctor to change his medication. He related that that was not going to happen. He stated he tried to call his doctor but was unable to make contact with the doctor. He related that this went on for much of the morning and much of the afternoon.
He related that maybe at about 8:00 p.m. he was at his residence sitting at the computer which is located in the kitchen talking to some friends through a Vonage line, which is a computer line. He related that he heard Carrie yelling at him. He stated that he got up from the chair, felt something push his left rib area, and he fell down.
TRO Application (written by a Turning Points Representative)
“ Nov. 1, 2009 Kevin and Carrie were at their home around 8:00 pm Kevin was on the phone with a friend from San Francisco. Earlier in the day Kevin and Carrie had financial arguments and Kevin told Carrie he did not want to talk about it and he was going to lay down. Kevin got off the phone he was looking around for Carrie he did not know where she was. Carrie was then angry and she started yelling at Kevin that “She could not put up with this anymore.” Kevin did not see the knife he seen [sic] his shirt bloody by his abdomen (in shock) Kevin walked into the room changed his shirt went to his computer and with the understanding that Carrie called the police on Kevin. Kevin then passed out and remembered bit and pieces of the E.M.T., in the ambulance then waking up in the hospital after surgery. Kevin is currently at Hilo Hospital.”
“I solemnly and sincerely declare, UNDER THE PENALTY OF PERJURY, that the statements made in this document are true and correct to the best of my belief, information, and knowledge.” [emphasis added]
Kevin then signs his TRO application.
Grand Jury Testimony12-02-2009 Prosecutor Rick Dammerville Q: And at any time did you become violent? Kevin Walters A: No. Q: And, um, at some point in time she came over to you. A: Yes. Q: And when she came over to you how close did she get, if you can say? A: Um, chest to chest. Q: Do you have a computer desk. A: Yes. It’s a kitchen table used in the – in the kitchen. And we usually keep the lap top on that one. And there’s a desk in the other room that has the desk top computer and I was sitting at that. But then I stood up and she was yelling and screaming at me at that point. Q: Do you recall what she was saying to you? A: It was all around – I had said to her, “You’re no longer going to manage this money. I am going to the social security office and I am going to have you removed from this.

And she approached you and then what happened? A: Ah, then I felt a lot of pain in my chest. And she left and went back out the door
During Kevin’s Grand Jury testimony the video ran for awhile WITHOUT THE AUDIO! The 911 call logs, proving time of events, were not presented.
The VOIP phone records show that on 11-1-09 at 5:04 pm Kevin has called a friend and is exchanging drunken pleasantries. He hangs up the phone at 6:32 pm. The following video is a 20 second snippet of his demeanor.
Sixty seconds later Carrie once again turns on the video. Warning: video contains graphic language.
Carrie’s TRO application written 5 MONTHS before she gets to see the video or any other evidence against her:
“11/1/09 Kevin got up at 6:50 am in an agitated state and immediately began an argument me. Even when he made a point I agreed with, he would get more agitated and yell at me that I didn’t understand. This continued non-stop until apx. 1:30 pm, when he began drinking and he became more unreasonable and aggressive. About 2:30 pm he started yelling at me for not returning an item to a neighbor because it was supposed to have been done earlier. I said that’s what I’m going to do right now and I got in my truck and left. I did not go to the neighbor, I instead went to Bill Church, a pastor & friend [of Kevin] on Kevin’s paddling crew.
I explained to Bill what was happening and asked for some help. Bill advised me to return home, tell Kevin to call him, and I should call 911. When I did return home, (around 4 pm?) Kevin was much drunker than I’ve ever seen him and was talking on the phone with a friend telling him how wonderful his (Kevin’s) life is.
I told Kevin that Bill wanted him to call. Kevin stayed on the phone for about an hour continuing to tell his friend how wonderful everything is. When he got off the phone he gave me this look of total hatred and said “you fucking cunt.” Then he yelled at me and I said something to the effect of “he just wants to talk to you.” Kevin then picked up my truck keys and put them in his pocket and called Bill. I tried to quietly call 911 on the other line, at 6:37 pm. Kevin heard and got more angry.
While Kevin was on the phone with Bill, he said the sharks been let out of the cage and now the shark is going to bite. This is when I got the knife. When he finished talking with Bill he handed me the phone and said Bill wanted to speak with me. I told Bill how serious the situation had gotten, pointed out the shark threat, told him I had a knife, and that I was recording this. Bill told me to call 911, I said I already had.
When I got off the phone with Bill, Kevin started yelling at me to “unring the bell” and call off the police. He also told me to be prepared to deal with what I had done, he would be out in a few hours, knew where I lived, would destroy all I had, make my life miserable, hunt me down, and come after me.
At 7:05 pm 911 called to say the police were delayed with a traffic incident and it would be a longer wait. I told her I needed the police now, he’s escalating, very drunk, and threatening me. I told her if the police don’t get here soon one of us would be dead and it would probably be me. I told her to tell the police to get my camera because I’m recording this. I also told her I had a knife.
I continued recording until the camera battery died. When I put the camera on the kitchen counter Kevin started screaming at me that I had no idea what I had done, now he was going to have to kill me. He lunged at me, grabbed me by the hair and flung me to the ground, then jumped on me. I then stabbed him and he backed off me and I ran.
[Michelle Keiki, Turning Points representative, then adds the following] On this same day Kevin dumped water in my computer and damaged the walls by throwing things. There are holes in my wooden walls.
Carrie then signs her TRO application under penalty of perjury.
Additionally, the video, VOIP log and the police log all verify the time frame of events. Kevin hangs up with his friend at 6:32 pm. Video is turned on again at 6:33 pm. First 911 call at 6:37 pm, 911 calls back at 7:09 pm, the video cuts off at 7:12 pm. At 7:16 pm Kevin calls 911 and hangs up. Carrie’s third 911 call is made from a neighbor’s house just after they arrived home at 7:19 pm.
The following recording is a call Kevin made to the Fire Department at 7:19 pm. This call was not released to Carrie’s attorney until October 10, 2010. Carrie did not receive it until November 21, 2011.
Kevin had access to all this information PRIOR to making his statements or giving testimony and still his statements don’t match up with the evidence. In fact, the evidence shows that NONE of Kevin’s stories could conceivably have happened.
On the other hand, the only statement that does match up exactly with the evidence is Carrie’s and she (the defendant) was the only one who DIDN’T have access to the evidence. She didn’t need to see the evidence, she lived it. The truth is not hard to remember.
On this night and in the ensuing weeks Kevin will commit Assault, Attempted Murder, numerous counts of Terroristic Threatening, numerous counts of Perjury, numerous counts of TRO violations, Theft, destruction of property, Social Security Fraud, and Insurance Fraud.
Charges filed: Zilch, Zero, Nada
Having Hawaii County connections: Priceless
