FOIA DocumentsPosted: May 3, 2020
So now you have seen all of the FOIA documents I have seen. I previously posted the FOIA documents received from the MSP concerning the investigation into Frank Shelden and Gerald Richards and N. Fox Island. https://catherinebroad.blog/2019/12/12/north-fox-island-pedophile-ring/
The MSP file is small, but the case journal shows that someone was checking on the case at yearly intervals to consider trying to extradite Shelden. There had to be an extensive FBI file on Shelden. In the MSP file pages most, but not all, of the “client” names were redacted. A couple got missed and there is one guy who stands out from Quebec as matching the last name of a retired Detroit police officer. At least two victims’ names were not redacted in those particular files and that’s why I tried my hardest not to post anything that had slipped through the official redaction process. It is easy to miss a name here or a reference there. It really is.
As you will recall, a FOIA request to the FBI for documents concerning Christopher Busch and Frank Shelden/N. Fox Island was answered with the “destroyed in a catastrophic flood” at one of their retention facilities excuse. Both subjects were deceased, so had it not been for the flood . . .
Here’s what happened when then reporter Marney Keenan attempted to get FOIA documents from the FBI concerning the hypnotizing and interrogating of witness Doug Wilson.
They provided 12 of 130 pages. I have not seen these pages, and the MSP FOIA response does address the basic information provided by Mr. Wilson and he spoke directly with my Dad. The rest of the pages were withheld by the FBI under the “reasonably expected to interfere with law enforcement proceedings exemption.” Oh, and records that “may have been responsive to your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request were destroyed on (July 10, 2009).” Thirty-two year old records just happened to be up for destruction after Cory Williams started digging deeper into the OCCK case. Guess 32 is the magic number for cycling into the shredder.
So when someone tells me to call the FBI, I really don’t think that would be worth anyone’s time, do you? “Reasonably expected to interfere with law enforcement proceedings.” That is laughable and indefensible.
