From: Emma Best

To Whom It May Concern:

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

All documents on, about, mentioning, or concerning the private investigator Richard Lee Bast (October 18, 1932 - March 21, 2001), Social Security No. 578-40-9899 and the companies he founded in the greater Washington, DC area known as Redex Corporation (1970s) and International Investigations, Inc. (1980-90s).

I understand that the file may be rather large. If it exceeds 5,000 pages, I wish to speak to a negotiator to help reduce the scope of responsive records.

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.
