From: Zack Sampson

To Whom It May Concern:

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

I would like any FBI files pertaining to Rulon Jeffs, born December 6, 1909 and died September 8, 2002. Proof of death is not required because it was widely reported at the time. See the following obituary from the Salt Lake Tribune: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/saltlaketribune/obituary.aspx?pid=482583#fbLoggedOut

"HILDALE, UTAH – On September 8, 2002, Rulon Timpson Jeffs, President of The Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, died of illness incident to age at the Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George, Utah. President Jeffs was born December 6, 1909 in Salt Lake City, Utah, a son of David William Ward and Nettie Lenora Timpson Jeffs."

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. 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.

Sincerely,

Zack Sampson
