To Whom It May Concern:

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

All files relating to the retired and deceased Police Officer Gerard Benderoth, and all internal investigative records that identify Benderoth as a subject. For specificity and to rule out duplicates, the subject Benderoth birthdate was February 1, 1969. His dates of service were from 1995 to 2005 (years approximate).

Under precedent, Freedom of Information Law uses a "balancing test" method of weighing privacy interests favoring redaction/denial against the public interest in favor of disclosure. This matter is of clear public interest for the following reasons: Benderoth was a public figure having been an amateur boxer in the Golden Gloves tournament and a competitor in World's Strongest Man competitions. The circumstances of his death was well-publicized, having occurred as he was sought by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in a quadruple homicide investigation.

As a deceased person, the privacy interests of Benderoth are diminished.

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,

Jacob Silverman
