RE: FOIA Request of February 21, 2020, Reference # R004318-022420
Dear Riley Andreas,
Thank you for contacting the Cook County Sheriff's Office ("CCSO") pursuant to the Illinois Freedom of Information Act ("FOIA"), 5 ILCS 140/1 et seq. (2012).
Your request mentioned:
1. Requesting Any missing persons reports, records or documents regarding the disappearance, investigation and other details around each victim of John Wayne Gacy.
2. Any case files, reports, records or documents regarding the disappearance, investigation and other details around each victim
3. Any files, reports, records or documents that document each victims manner of death and other details around their cause of death
Please be advised that at this time the CCSO asks that you narrow your request as compliance would be overly broad and unduly burdensome, pursuant to 5 ILCS 140/3(g). We would like to extend you the opportunity to confer with our office in order to reduce your request to manageable proportions. Please respond with a narrowed response, such as by specifying a particular missing persons case at issue, or provide a time you are available to conference call with our office in order to discuss your request. If we do not hear from you within five (5) business days, your request will be treated as closed.
Please contact us by replying to this email if you have any further concerns/questions related to this request.
