In the copy of a FOIA request fulfillment from the BIA, a Federal Grand Jury procceding was referenced. I understand that requesting a transcript of this proceedings into criminal activity into the death of a little girl is very protected for the individual in question. Is it possible to FOIA the Dept. of Justice for this information if it is family making the request?

Generally speaking no, Grand Jury proceedings are exempt. More information available here:
