Court
arraigns
alleged
stalker
by Will McCahil!
Daily Crime Reporter
, A 24-year-old Ann Arbor resident
was arraigned yesterday on charges of
stalking a University student.
Timothy Grizzle was arrested by
University Department of Public Safety
(DPS) officers Friday, after a female
LSA senior made a number of com-
plaints to DPS that he was stalking her.
State law requires two reported inci-
dents of stalking before an arrest can be
. made.
Grizzle stood mute at his arraign-
m tent before -Judge Timothy Connors
yesterday in 15thDistrictCourt. Grizzle
had apparently decided to plead guilty,
but then changed his mind and made no
plea
DPS Lt. James Smiley said the Ann
Arbor Police Department has had pre-
viousproblems with Grizzle, and called
the connection between Grizzle and the
woman he allegedly stalked "an ongo-
mlg hate relationship."
SThe two dated in the past, Smiley
said, and Grizzle harassed the woman at
intervals over the past six years, once
allegedly breaking her arm.
Grizzle, an Ashland, Ky. native, is
not a student but lives in Ann Arbor and
is unemployed.
Grizzle eluded police for several
__ days after the stalking complaint was
registered against him, finally being
apprehended Friday, the day Judge
Elizabeth Pollard issued a warrant for
his arrest.
Connors set bail for Grizzle at
$1,000. Grizzle could not post the sum
and was therefore detained overnight at
Washtenaw County jail.
The charge of stalking is a misde-
meanor and carries a maximum sen-
tence of one year in prison and/or a
$1,000 fine.
A pretrial hearing is set for 11 a.m.
this morning.

Fire in cult compound kills as many as 86

* FBI officials believe
cult members set fire
after federal agents
invaded Branch
Davidian hideout
WACO, Texas (AP) - Doomsday
cult leader David Koresh's apocalyptic
prediction for his followers came true
yesterday when a raging fire destroyed
the compound where he had held fed-
eral agents at bay for 51 days.
As many as 86 members of the
Branch Davidian religious sect, includ-
ing Koreshand 24children, were thought
to have died as the flames raced through
the buildings in 30 minutes. Only nine
were known to have survived.
The blaze erupted about 12:05 p.m.,
just six hours after FBI agents began
using armored vehicles to pound holes

in the complex of buildings and spray
them with tear gas in a bid to force an
end to the standoff.
Nine cultmembers who escaped the
flames are believed by federal officials
to be the only survivors, but authorities
said they would not know the precise
death toll until they could search an
underground maze of passageways.
Justice Department spokesperson
Carl Stern said two survivors were in-
jured critically, one had a serious injury
and three have minor injuries, all in-
cluding burns. One person taken into
custody told authorities that people in-
side the compound had set the blaze,
Stern said.
The person said that as he left one of
the buildings, "he could hear above him
people saying, 'The fire's been lit, the
fire's been lit,"' Stern said.
"We can only assume it was a mas-

sive loss oflife,"FBI spokesperson Bob
Ricks said in a solemn afternoon news
conference.
Ricks said multiple witnesses spot-
ted cult members setting several fires.
One person, Ricks said, "was knelt
down with his hands cupped, from which
a flame erupted."
FBI agents reported seeing a man
wearing a gas mask and black uniform
throw something inside, followed by a
fireball. Additionally, Ricks said, aman
found yesterday afternoon in a bunker
on the grounds said lantern fuel had
been spread throughout the wooden
complex and that the fire was started
simultaneously in several places.
Koresh had warned the- FBI last
week that agents would be "devoured
by fire" if they tried to harm him.
A maze of tunnels was believed to
run under thecomplex, butJackKillorin;

a spokesperson in Washington for the
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Fire-+
arms, said the agency believed no tun-
nel system would have allowed people+
to survive the fire.;
"It's a bad end and one of the ends
we feared from the beginning," Killorin
said. "Obviously, suicide was aconcern;
all along, but the method was different,
unexpected."
Attorney General Janet Reno ap-
proved the assault and informed Presi-;
dent Clinton. The FBI notified the
compound'sneighbors before daybreak
"that it would end today," according to
Melanie Felton, a nearby rancher.
Late in the day, Reno said the FBI's
assault had been carefully planned over
several days. She added that she "could
not give the president that assurance"
that the agents could prevent a mass
suicide such as the cyanide poisoning

that killed 913 people at Jonestown,
Guyana, in 1978.
The fire erupted while television
cameras provided live coverage of an
armored vehicle battering a hole into
the compound's first story.
Agents in the predawn tear gas as-
sault were met by gunfire, at least 75-
80 rounds, the FBI said. The agents
continued ripping holes in compound
buildings throughout the morning, and
at a 10:30 a.m. session with reporters,
Ricks spoke calmly about the decision
to force Koresh and his followers out.
"Today's action is not an indication
that our patience has run out," Ricks
said. "The action taken today was, we
believe, the next logical step in a series
of actions to bring this episode to a
conclusion."

Students to attend march for

lesbian, gay, bisex

by Randy Lebowitz,
Daily Staff Reporter
Contingencies of activists will par-
ticipate in the 1993 March on Washing-
ton forLesbian, GayandBisexualEqual
Rights and Liberation April25. Among
them will be students from the Univer-
sity and members of the Ann Arbor
community.
The gay community is demanding
passage of a federal civil rights bill
banning discrimination based upon
sexual orientation. Of particular focus
will be the issues of gays in the military
and AIDS.
Grassroots organizers from across
the nation have spent the last two years
planning the event. Although the actual
march will occur Sunday, a week filled
* with more than 250 related events has
also been scheduled to run April 20-28.
"Thismarch is acall toarms, notjust
for the gay, lesbian and bisexual com-

munity, but to every citizen who op-
poses discrimination-to every citizen
who will not remain silent while the
Constitiution and Bill of Rights are re-
placed by fundamentalist doctrine,"
according to a press release.
Eventswillinclude lobbying, work-
shops, receptions and drag shows.
Co-coordinator of the University's
Lesbian-Gay Male Programming Of-
fice (LGMPO)Jim Toy said he expects
more than 1 million members of the
community to be in attendance to advo-
cate equal rights.
RC sophomore Ryan Bradley said
he will attend the march in order to
garner support for the homosexual com-
munity. "I believe the besttool forequal-
ity is visibility," Bradley said. "This
shows that we are part of society and
that we deserve equal treatment."
Bradley said Washington, D.C., was
the perfect place for this type of rally.

"People look at the Washington Monu-
ment and the Lincoln Memorial and get
the impression that it's this beautiful
white-washed city, but they don't real-
ize that a lot of people are there who
don't fulfill the American values," Bra-
dley said.
This will be the third march that
Debbie Rosenstein, arecentUniversity
graduate has attended. "My experience
is thatitdoes matter if you asoneperson
show up, because one plus one plus one
adds up," she said.
Rosenstein said it is always encour-
aging to see the diversity of the people.
"It's always amazing to see little kids
with signs thatsay I'mproud ofmy two
mommies.'"
She said this march is important
because it will create more visibility for
thediversegay community. "Itwillgive
an understanding that gay males, lesbi-

Archeologists across the nation are
looking beyond ancient ruins to learn
more about anthropology.
According to a survey conductedby
the Society for American Archeology
(SAA), the University's Department of
Anthropology offers the best graduate
program in the country.
Thesurveywasdistributedrandomly

fessional positions at colleges and uni-
versities across the nation.
Approximately 10 faculty members
from the University are members of the
society, including Department of An-
thropology Chair Richard Ford.
Members of the SAA evaluated ar-
cheology programs based on character-

ties for students to the presence of de-

Ford said he was not asked to com-
plete a survey, and is not aware of any
