Dear Requester:

The United States Marshals Service (USMS) is in receipt of your request for any photographs taken during the investigation of the New York prison escape of Richard Matt and David Sweat from the Clinton Correctional Facility, including those of the methods of escape. The United States Marshals Service does not maintain records such as those that you requested. It appears that the records you seek are likely to be maintained by state or local authorities. For your information, the federal Freedom of Information Act applies only to records maintained by federal agencies that are subject to the FOIA. Records that are maintained by state or local authorities are subject only to any records access laws that might be applicable to those states and localities. Accordingly, if you have not already done so, it is suggested that you make a request for such records to the proper state or local authority in accordance with the appropriate state or local records access law.

Sincerely,

William E. Bordley
Associate General Counsel/FOIPA Officer
