Awaiting Response


From: T. McElwee

To Whom It May Concern:

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

All records mentioning or concerning inmate STEPHEN CARACAPPA, Register Number: 04597-748.

Records from all BOP facilities are appreciated. To assist in search, I can determine that Caracappa was last held at FCI Butner; he was previously held in USP Coleman as well as the Metropolitan Detention Complex in Brooklyn, NY.

The personal privacy exemptions for these records are void, as Caracappa is deceased as of 2017. Find attached the search result on the Bureau's "Find an inmate" webpage; in addition, find a press report of Caracappa's death from the NY Post.

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.

Ms. Lee,

To narrow scope, I request that these DOJ/BOP Systems of Records are the ones to be searched:

Inmate Central Records System, JUSTICE/BOP–005; Inmate Commissary Accounts Record System, JUSTICE/BOP–006; Telephone Activity Record System, JUSTICE/BOP–011; Office of Internal Affairs (OIA) Investigative Records, JUSTICE/BOP–012; Inmate Electronic Message Record System, JUSTICE/BOP–013.

This search should be restricted to queries for the name "Stephen Caracappa," and/or inmate number 04597-748.

I reiterate that Mr. Caracappa is noted by the BOP and the press to be deceased and certain exemptions under the Privacy Act are voided as a result.
