OIP,

I ask that you review this matter as I believe it was the case of an improper search by the FBI. I know the Bureau routinely keeps clippings from news stories in its files for numerous reasons. I further know that the subject, Walter Mercado was a prolific public speaker and TV personality who appeared on TV nightly for almost 30 years. Therefore, I believe these records should exists and that the Bureau performed an inadequate search for records. I specified that they do a cross reference search but I have no way to know if they did or not.

Freddy
