Good Afternoon Mr. Freskos:

In regards to obtaining a copy of report 12-587355. During the initial analysis of the request we did not realize that the report was associated with an Active investigation. Unfortunately, I don't know when the report will be available for public release as it will remain in an “ Active ” status until the court has reached a decision and the case is finalized through the court system.

I will be sending your check back to you via mail to the below address:

MuckRock

411A Highland Avenue

Somerville, MA 02144-2516

Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
