Payment Required


From: Amelia McDonell-Parry

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Maryland Public Information Act, I hereby request the Maryland State Police complete investigative file into the in-custody death of Anton Black on September 15, 2018. This request includes but is not limited to reports of recorded statements, video surveillance or body camera footage, witness interviews, and photographs, as well as the findings of the investigation.

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. Alternatively, please consider waiving any fees, pursuant to ยง 4-206(e)(2)(ii) of the General Provisions Article, as this request is on behalf of individuals served by the Maryland Office of the Public Defender, a state government agency, which solely serves indigent citizens of Maryland. As a result, my request for the above-listed public records is in the public interest. 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 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.
