To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
All responsive documents mentioning or pertaining to Francis Warren Nicholls, Jr., also known as “Frankie Knuckles” (January 18, 1955 — March 31, 2014). Proof of death is not required as his death was widely reported in news media last year:
Please conduct a search of the Central Records and Electronic Surveillance (ELSUR) indices, as well as cross-reference documents.
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.
