I, JON J. GAW, hereby declare and state:
1. I am a private investigator, licensed to practice in the State of California. I have personal knowledge of the matters set forth herein and, if called upon to do so, could and would competently testify thereto.
2. I have my own private investigative firm, J. J. Gaw Investigations, Inc. For the past several years I have done private investigative work for the law firm of Bowles & Moxon. In this capacity, I was recently requested to assist on the service on Theodore Heisig of the complaint encaptioned, Bowles & Moxon v. Ted Heisig, Jr..
3. During this last week, I went to the home of Mr. Heisig, at 3603 Park Balboa, Orange, California. When I could not locate Mr. Heisig, I spoke with one of his neighbors, a Mr. Stanley. Mr. Stanley informed me that Mr. Heisig has not been living at his residence for the last several weeks and that, to Mr. Stanley's knowledge, Heisig had moved out of his house, to an unknown residence.
4. On Wednesday, February 24, 1993, in a further attempt to locate Mr. Heisig, I called his answering service and left a message for him requesting that he contact me and make himself available for service of the Bowles & Moxon v. Heisig complaint.
5. At approximately 4:30 P.M. on Thursday, February 25, 1993, Mr. Heisig returned my call. He told me that he was aware of the lawsuit as his sister had discovered the complaint in a "court check" which she had done. He said that he was aware that private investigator Bill Socha, had been to his former residence to attempt service of the complaint on him as his former roommate had advised him of those facts. He told me that he did not plan to return to his former residence and said that if I wanted to serve him, I would have to locate him first. He gave me no indication of his whereabouts, his current residence, nor of how I could get in touch with him. He said that he intended to make it difficult for "them" (i. e., for Bowles & Moxon and/or its agents) to accomplish the service of the complaint. He also said that "they will have to spend a lot of time and money to find me and serve me."
I declare under penalty of perjury of the United States and of the State of California that the foregoing is true and correct.
Executed this 26th day of February, 1993, at Riverside County, California.
Dated: February 26, 1993

Re Gaw Declaration: I remember Jon well . He left his card on my screen door. I watched as he and a blonde woman stood across the street from my home and took down license plate numbers. They paced back and forth for nearly an hour. I never answered the door and I never had reason to call him. I did not know at the time he worked for Moxon but knew his trip to my front porch was cult related. I believe it was around l993 or l994. Never a dull moment on Mom's front porch! Ida Camburn
