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 regarding or mentioning the Cabazon Band of Mission Indians. In 1987 the tribe became involved in controversy regarding the murders of Alfred "Fred" Alvarez and his friends Patricia Castro and Ralph Boger. Some in media have suggested these deaths had been in linked to what has been dubbed the 'octopus conspiracy'. That allegedly encompasses the INSLAW software theft case, the October Surprise theory ,the collapse of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, and the Iran–Contra scandal.

In 2010 Jimmy Hughes, a 52-year-old former tribal security for the Cabazon Band of Mission Indians turned preacher. Was charged the murders but the case later collapsed.

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 with all the names and events I have mentioned.

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.
