To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
All documents on, about, mentioning, or concerning Mary Florence Barnett, born June 07, 1933 and died September 08, 1985. Death record: http://death-records.mooseroots.com/l/213484548/Mary-Florence-Barnett
Please search the cross-reference and ELSUR systems, in addition to the main Central Index, when identifying responsive documents for this request.
I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest due to Ms. Barnett's familial connections to the top-ranking executive in charge of the Church of Scientology and the strange circumstances of her death that have been widely reported: http://blogs.villagevoice.com/runninscared/2012/01/the_strange_dea.php
Additionally, the requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.
In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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.
Ms. R. M. Seibert
