Dear Mr. Wertz,

In the meantime while you await the letter, the following information is what is needed to proceed with the request:

You have requested records concerning one or more third party individuals (i.e., Alton Nolen). The FBI recognizes an important privacy interest in the requested information. You may receive greater access to these records (if they exist) by providing one of the following: (1) an authorization and consent from the individual(s) (i.e., express authorization and consent of the third party); (2) proof of death (i.e., proof that your subject is deceased); or (3) a justification that the public interest in disclosure outweighs personal privacy (i.e., a clear demonstration that the public interest in disclosure outweighs personal property interests).

The U. S. Department of Justice CERTIFICATION OF IDENTITY (Authorization to Release Information to Another Person)-FORM DOJ-361<https://www.fbi.gov/file-repository/u-s-department-of-justice-form-361-certification-of-identity.pdf/view> can be used to provide consent. The form is also available at http://www.fbi.gov<http://www.fbi.gov>/, http://www.fbi.gov/foia/<http://foia.fbi.gov> or http://www.justice.gov/oip/. Note-please provide the following information on the OPTIONAL: Authorization to Release Information to Another Person line: Your name, title/business (if applicable) and a complete and current mailing address. Acceptable forms of proof of death include; obituaries, death certificates, recognized sources that can be documented, written media, Who's Who in America, FBI file that indicates person is deceased or the Social Security Death Index. A waiver or proof of death is not required if date of birth is 100 years ago or greater. Note-a web link in itself does not satisfy proof of death.

Please return the form or letter to one of the following: by mail: FBI, Attn: FOIPA Request, 170 Marcel Drive, Winchester, VA 22602-4843, or by fax: (540) 868-4391/4997. You may submit an attachment listing additional information that may aid in locating responsive records. Please place your name and contact information on the attachment. Alternatively, for deceased individuals, you may utilize our eFOIPA portal (https://efoia.fbi.gov) to submit your request electronically. The portal is available Monday through Friday, 4am to 10pm EST.

Information regarding the Freedom of Information/Privacy Act is available at http://www.fbi.gov<http://www.fbi.gov>/ or http://www.fbi.gov/foia/. If you require additional assistance please contact the Public Information Officer.

Holly:

Pursuant to your 1/20/2017 correspondence in reference to my request for information on Alton Alexander Nolen/FOIPA #1358634-000:

Nolen is on trial for murder and assault after a highly-publicized September 2014 attack in Moore, Oklahoma. FBI assisted with the high-profile investigation, of which the public interest in disclosure outweighs personal property interests.

Please contact me if you have any questions about my request, which I've also made in writing/U.S. mail per instructions.
