To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Delaware Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

Data on all cases of deaths in custody involving an Alaska Native/American Indian woman or girl victim within your jurisdiction(s). For the purposes of this request, "Alaska Native/American Indian" is defined as any individual who was identified as a member of an Alaska Native or American Indian community or as having Alaska Native/American Indian heritage. "Woman or girl" includes all victims identified as females, as well as transgender women. We are requesting cases dating from 1900 to the present.

This request is for basic information on cases as classified above. Such information may include but is not limited to victim name, location and date of disappearance/death, age of victim, status of case (solved or unsolved).

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 15 business days, as the statute requires.

Please note that I am a citizen of Delaware, and am using MuckRock's services to help manage and track my request.

Sincerely,

Jonathan Rudenberg

From: Department of Correction

Mr. Rudenberg:

Please accept this response to the FOIA request you sent to the Department of Correction on October 27, 2018 requesting "data on all cases of deaths in custody involving an Alaska Native/American Indian woman or girl victim within your jurisdiction(s). For the purposes of this request, "Alaska Native/American Indian" is defined as any individual who was identified as a member of an Alaska Native or American Indian community or as having Alaska Native/American Indian heritage. "Woman or girl" includes all victims identified as females, as well as transgender women. We are requesting cases dating from 1900 to the present."

In response to your request, since 1991, there have been no deaths of Alaskan Native/American Indian females in our prison system.

This fully responds to your FOIA request and this matter is now considered closed.

Thank you for contacting the Delaware Department of Correction.

Sincerely,

Kerri
