To Whom It May Concern:

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

All records concerning James Joseph Bulger Jr., alias "Whitey" a deceased federal prisoner. For purposes of locating records please note the following information:

Full Name: James Joseph Bulger Jr.

See attached obituary for proof of Bulger's death. Records concerning Bulger as a subject should be assumed exempt from the FOIA Exemption 6, 7(C) and the Privacy Act.

Please conduct a search of all US Marshals Service systems of records for both main-file records and cross-reference records for all relevant names, agencies and companies.

US Marshals Service systems of records of interest include (but are not limited to) the Internal Affairs System; U.S. Marshals Service Prisoner Processing and Population Management-Prisoner Tracking System; Warrant Information Network (WIN); Witness Security Files Information System; and Inappropriate Communications - Threat Information System.

If any potentially responsive records have been destroyed and/or transferred to NARA, then I request copies of the destruction or transfer slips as well as any other documentation relating to, mentioning or describing said transfer or destruction, to include but not be limited to confirmation that USMS has no other copies of said 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.

Sincerely,

T. McElwee
