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

Absolutely any and all files and materials regarding or referencing Heath Ledger, an actor whose death on January 22, 2008 was widely reported by the mainstream media. [For reference: https://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/01/22/actor-heath-ledger-is-found-dead/]

Please include all potentially responsive materials, including but not limited to all communications, reports, inquiries, investigations, photographs, audio files, video files, memos, directives, etc.

Please include all materials found in other subject files and all materials associated with any potentially-related names and any other known aliases, nicknames, code names, or any other identifying pseudonyms or references utilized by this agency.

Please consult the Central Records System and records, the Electronic Surveillance (ELSUR) Data Management System and records, Microphone Surveillance (MISUR) records, Physical Surveillance (FISUR) records, Technical Surveillance (TESUR) records, and all available cross-reference indices, databases, and records, in addition to any other locations containing potentially-responsive materials.

A no responsive documents response.

From: Beryl Lipton

To Whom It May Concern:

This is an appeal of the final determination provided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation for FOIA request 1396231-000. My initial letter requested that the search for responsive records extend beyond the Central Records System. However, according to the summation of efforts provided in the agency's closing response to my request, no materials outside of the CRM were reviewed. With all due respect for the necessary energy needed to complete the request as described, I ask that processing of this request continue until appropriately satisfied.

Thank you very much for your time and help.
