To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the California Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

A copy of a January 2019 letter from Cheryl Temple, chief assistant district attorney for Ventura County, to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The letter contains the phrases from Temple saying, “I have no concern whatsoever about the legality of anything that was done in the case,” and “I don’t think anybody has any question whatsoever about how the case was solved,” and “perpetuates a fraudulent impression of all the methods implemented to identify Joseph DeAngelo.”

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.
