To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to Tennessee's Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

Records relating to Andrew C. Thornton II (1945–1985), who was a head member of "The Company", a drug smuggling ring in Kentucky. On a smuggling run from Colombia, having dumped packages of cocaine off near Blairsville, Georgia, Thornton jumped from his auto-piloted Cessna 404. In the September 11, 1985 jump, he was caught in his parachute and ended up in a free fall to the ground. His dead body was found in the back yard of Knoxville, Tennessee resident Fred Myers. His death has been widely reported. http://articles.latimes.com/1985-09-12/news/mn-21488_1_cocaine

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 7 business days, as the statute requires.

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

Sincerely,

Carlton Purvis
