To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
All documents on, about or mentioning Tilmer "T." Eugene Thompson (b. 1927 in Blue Earth, Minn.; d. Aug. 7, 2015 in, Minn.)
No proof of death is required, as his death is common knowledge. From an obituary in the New York Times (see http://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/06/us/t-eugene-thompson-dies-at-88-crime-stunned-st-paul.html): "After serving 19 years of a life term, Mr. Thompson was paroled in 1983. He died on his 88th birthday, Aug. 7, at his home in Roseville, a Twin Cities suburb. His son, Jeffrey, a former defense lawyer and prosecutor who was 13 at the time of the murder and is now chief judge for the southeastern district of Minnesota, confirmed the death."
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is submitted in my capacity as a journalist.
In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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.
