To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the The Missouri Sunshine Law, I hereby request the following records:

Data on all cases of: unsolved missing persons, homicides, suspicious deaths, and 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. If there are any Jane Does that have been identified as potentially Alaska Native or American Indian, please include them as well. 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.

Your public record request has been submitted to the Missouri State Highway Patrol's Custodian of Records for processing.  In compliance with Chapter 610 of the Missouri Revised Statutes, this message serves as the department’s initial response within three business days. Public access and/or copies of the records you requested are not immediately available. The explanation of the cause for delay is that additional time is needed to research, and/or duplicate any records that are responsive to your request and are open pursuant to Chapter 610 of the Missouri Revised Statutes. Furthermore, in the event any information in the records is exempt from disclosure, additional time will be required to redact the information exempt from disclosure prior to providing public access and/or copies. For these reasons, the department anticipates a further response will be provided to you within twenty to thirty business days. You will also be notified if there are any fees associated with producing such reports.

Please do not call to check the status of your request until 30 business days after your request was submitted.  If you wish to withdraw your request or need further clarification regarding your request, please call 573-526-6146 or 573-526-6167.
