SA 03 91 1 1 1 1 Arson suspect blames accusers Staff Writer FRANKLIN A Thompsons BONNA M. de la CRUZ Station man yesterday denied looting and torching a historic mansion near his home and turned the tables on his accusers when he took the stand to defend himself. Danny Forsythe, 43, denied ever setting foot in the Sedberry House and gave jurors a description of how he used binoculars to watch his uncle, Kenneth Bradley, steal a pickup truck, four-wheeler, toolboxes, mink furs, guns and other things from his wealthy neighbors. Forsythe, 43, is on trial in Williamson County Circuit Court on 5-year-old charges of arson, aggravated burglary and theft. The case was delayed because Forsythe moved to Chicago and was not arrested until a year ago.

Closing arguments are expected today before the case is turned over to a seven-woman, five-man jury. Bradley, who has never been charged in the case, testified Wednesday that Forsythe asked for his help in carrying out the theft, as well as his expertise as a mechanic "on how much the truck would be worth if we stole it and sold it." Bradley testified that he realizes that he still may be charged in the case and denied that he had been offered a deal to testify. Forsythe said during questioning by his attorney Stuart Caulkins that Bradley acted alone in stealing the goods in December 1989 and drove most of the goods to his body shop in Georgia. Under cross-examination, Forsythe said he drove some of the stolen goods to his nephew, Butch Hayes, in Georgia and contracted to sell the stolen four-wheeler to Hayes for $400. Half of that amount was given to Bradley, Bradley testified.

Investigators said the fire that leveled the home built in 1895 known as Sedberry House or Sherwood was started to cover up a burglary. It was set in a master bedroom by someone who used flammable liquids, investigators testified Wednesday. Witnesses for the prosecution described how Forsythe played a larger role in the theft and bragged about setting fire to the home. Alan Reed, a Cheatham County man, testified yesterday that Forsythe asked him if he wanted to buy a four-wheeler, pickup truck and tractor that he planned to steal from his neighbor's home. "He said he was going to break into the home and get some jewels and furs," Reed testified yesterday.

"I told him it was too close to his home and he'll get caught. He said he wouldn't get caught because he would burn to the ground." Reed said he was paid $1,000 by Crime Stoppers for information he gave police about Forsythe. Forsythe said he never made those statements to Reed and that Reed wanted to steal the truck. said he was going to break into the home and get some jewels and furs." ALAN REED Cheatham County man A co-owner of the stone mansion, Joyce Breitling, yesterday told jurors how Forsythe and his son did yard work for her and Cynthia Shattuck at their Columbia Highway home. A few weeks after they lost the home in the fire, they learned neighbor Forsythe had been evicted from his own house across the street.

"We let him and his family stay in a small guest house," Breitling said. She and Shattuck even bought a Christmas dinner for the financially strained family, who stayed in the home until February 1990.1 White House man missing since Wednesday By BILL HOBBS Staff Writer WHITE HOUSE Johnny Escue, 44, left his home near here to go 1 to work early Wednesday, like he always did. ESCUE Escue, who worked at the dairy case at the Food Value grocery store in Cross Plains, has been into a cemetery, circled around, headed down a hill and out of the man's sight, he said.
