From: Alexandre Kampouris

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

All records pertaining to the 1953 disappearance and murder of the following three US citizens:

Eugene H. Lindsay, 47
Richard E. Lindsay, 17
Frederick Claar, 20

All three individuals were of Hollidaysburg PA.

They were last seen alive on or about 12 June 1953 as they entered the forest on a bear-hunting trip along the St-Jean river of the Gaspé peninsula in Québec, Canada.

The older Lindsay was a pipe fitter at the Altoona Works of the Pennsylvania Railroad.

A Canadian citizen, Wilbert Coffin, was convicted of one count of murder related to the above individuals. He was hanged in 1956 protesting his innocence.

All records pertaining to Wilbert Coffin are also herewith requested, including anything relating to the controversies that ensued in the following decades, including books, a public commission of inquiry, and a film.

Finally, records on any prior FOIA requests relating to Claar, Coffin, or the Lindsays, are also requested.

The requester believes that this request should be responsive, as he expects that the US Department of State would have followed up on a high-profile case involving US citizens, and would have made representations to, or liaised with, various Canadian federal and Québec authorities.

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,

Alexandre Kampouris

From: U.S. Department of State

From: National Archives and Records Administration

Dear Mr. Kampouris:

This is in response to your November 6, 2019, Freedom of Information Act
request (RDT2 20-07273) about Department of State records on the murder of
three Americans in Canada in 1953. We received your request on November 8.

The records of the U.S. consulate in Quebec City were not designated for
preservation in the National Archives. We searched the central files of
the Department maintained in Washington. We located only two documents
relating to the murder of Eugene Lindsey, Richard Lindsey, and Fredrick
Claar. The attached pdf includes an image of each document, as well as
citation information. We located no references to Wilbert Coffin.

The materials you are requesting are already open for public viewing in our
research room at the National Archives in College Park, MD, located at 8601
Adelphi Road, College Park, MD. Since there are no access restrictions on
these documents, there was no need to file a Freedom of Information Act
request with the National Archives.

This concludes the processing of your request.

If you are not satisfied with our action on this request, your options for
appeal and dispute resolution are as follows:

You have the right to file an administrative appeal in writing via regular
U.S. mail or email. Your appeal should be received within ninety (90)
calendar days from the date of this letter and it should explain why you
believe this response does not meet the requirements of the Freedom of
Information Act. Please address it to the Deputy Archivist of the United
States (ND), National Archives and Records Administration, 8601 Adelphi
Road, College Park, Maryland 20740. Both the letter and the envelope
should be clearly marked “Freedom of Information Act Appeal.” You may also
submit your appeal to FOIA@nara.gov also addressed to the Deputy Archivist.
All correspondence should reference your internal case tracking number
noted above.

In addition to your right to file an administrative appeal with the Deputy
Archivist, you may seek assistance from our acting FOIA Public Liaison
(FPL). Contact information for the FOIA Public Liaison at the National
Archives, Washington DC area is as follows:
FOIA requester Service Center telephone number: 301-837-3190
Acting FOIA Public Liaison: Britney Crawford

College Park, MD 20740-6001
Telephone number: 301-837-3190
E-mail address: DC.FOIA.LIAISON@NARA.GOV

Finally, the Office of Government Information Services (OGIS) offers
mediation services to resolve disputes between FOIA requesters and Federal
agencies as a non-exclusive alternative to administrative appeals. Using
OGIS services does not affect your right to pursue an administrative
appeal. The contact information for OGIS is as follows:
