Hi Debra,

The man who was killed is my uncle. The next of kin is my grandmother and I'm trying to help her take care of paperwork and insurance stuff. Is there a good number I can call you on?

Thanks,

Carlton

From: DEBRA GREEN

Please see attachment.

Thank you

From: Carlton Purvis

Thank you,

I'm working with her to get all of this together. What document would she use to show that she is the authorized representative of the deceased?

Thanks,

Carlton

From: Carlton Purvis

Good morning,

I have called Debra Green several times and had no response. Can you please let me know what documentation you need to show that she is an authorized representative of the deceased?

Thanks,

Carlton

Mr. Purvis,

Please submit documents that show she is the executor of the estate or paperwork showing her relationship to the deceased.

Can you send these photos via email?

If not, you can mail them to me at:

Also, originally you billed me $24 for the request. Can you send me an explanation of why the additional $5 and cite any relevant laws or ordinances.

I am also requesting that the $5 be waived as the fee for getting the accident report was $24 and these photos are part of that report.

Thank you,

Carlton

Once my supervisor sign off on everything, I will try to send the photographs via email. If I can't, there will be a $5 fee for the CD.
