From: Robert Delaware

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the New Jersey Open Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

Respectfully, this is a request to the Toms River Police Department for the full missing person investigation file related to the August 7th 1983 disappearance of a man named John E. Warren. These documents might include a copy of "May 1968 resume" that came from a "case file" that was previously shared with the news media in 2015.

Please include any correspondence, either to or from, with NCIC or any other law enforcement agencies. If there are portions of these documents cannot be released due to this being an active investigation, then please release those documents which were previously shared with the news media.

A 2015 news media article describes a journalist reading the "case file" on the disappearance of John E. Warren.

There does not appear to be a listing for John E. Warren in the NamUs database. Sources online state very affirmatively that the Toms River Police Department is the lead agency on the case.

There are numerous articles about this disappearance online, and searches for "John E. Warren" and "missing" in various search engines return results such as this:

https://www.app.com/story/news/local/new-jersey/weird-nj/2015/06/07/weird-nj-happened-professor/28640183/

Please Note: I am filing this request because it is my strong belief that JOHN E. WARREN is the identity of a John Doe discovered in Onondaga County in New York in September of 1983. I am hopeful that this request will facilitate the forensic comparison of JOHN E. WARREN with the John Doe from Onondaga.

Thank you, and I appreciate the the Toms River Police Department's commitment to transparency and to solving the missing person case of John E. Warren.

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.

Sincerely,

Robert Delaware

From: Toms River Police Department
