Communications

From: Robert Delaware

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Nevada Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

Any autopsy reports, death certificates, post mortem photographs, or final reports relating the death of a John Doe discovered on February 16th of 1987 in a Las Vegas hotel room. This John Doe checked into a hotel using the alias of "Douglas Baker" and has remained unidentified for 30 years.

This John Doe is listed in NamUs and UP #8137: https://www.identifyus.org/en/cases/8137

I've long been interested in this case, and intend to widely distribute any information released onto forums such as websleuths.com and reddit for the purposes of generating interest in the case. I have read through the policy for requesting documents on your website, which I could not understand, so I am therefore filing a FOIA request.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Robert Delaware

Hi there,

This request was submitted via email, but it's never been acknowledged. It would be greatly appreciated if your office could confirm that this letter has been received at this time.

Thank you.

Hello Mr. Fudenberg-

I filed this request. Unfortunately, I don’t live in the United States and I don’t make many long distance phone calls. I do use Skype and Facebook Messenger. I don’t believe I have much to add about this request. As I remember, my theory was that this man could be a man who was reported missing out of San Francisco in the fall of 1986.

I believe that this case is solvable, and that the release of this information will help in identification.

Please feel free to contact if you have any questions.
