To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the New Hampshire Right to Know 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.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Annita Lucchesi

From: New Hampshire State Police

Ms. Lucchesi,

I am writing to acknowledge your request below dated October 27, 2018 for "data" and "basic information" on NH State Police cases from 1900 to the present pertaining to "unsolved missing persons, homicides, suspicious deaths, and deaths in custody involving an Alaska Native/American Indian woman or girl victim", with such data/information to include "victim name, location and date of disappearance/death, age of victim, status of case (solved or unsolved)". I estimate that we will need approximately two weeks in order to conduct a search for responsive records. Depending on the outcome of that search, additional time may be needed for either additional searches or evaluation of the responsive records for material that is exempt from disclosure under RSA 91-A and case law.
