To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

Any and all files on Andrew Carter Thornton II (Drew Thornton). Thornton was a former paratrooper and Kentucky police officer who became involved in organised crime and drug trafficking which eventually led to his death in 1987.

Please conduct a search of the Central Records System, including but not limited to the Electronic Surveillance (ELSUR) Indices, the Microphone Surveillance (MISUR) Indices, the Physical Surveillance (FISUR) Indices, and the Technical Surveillance (TESUR) Indices.

Proof of death is not required as his was widely reported at the time:

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 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Joseph Lloyd
