P.O. Box 512 Attn: Diana

Riverside, CA 92502-0512

Attention: Andre O’Harra

Dear Sir:

Further to my earlier request for access to and copies of records dated January 11, 2008 and pursuant to California’s Public Records Act and our right to know as a victim and victim representative, I write to request immediate access to and a copy of any and all records, in particular the following, pertaining to file no. B07217013 (Gordon Nye Frank):

1. Critical Incident log prepared by Dep. Hobbs;

2. CD of interview conducted by Dep. Hobbs;

3. Photos of crime scene, victim, witness, suspect, various rooms at location and car

I ask for a determination on this request within 10 days of your receipt of it, and an even earlier reply if you can make that determination without having to review the record/s in question.

If you determine that some but not all of the information is exempt from disclosure and that you intend to withhold it, I ask that you redact it for the time being and make the request available as requested.

In any event, please provide a signed notification citing the legal authorities on which you rely if you determine that any or all of the information is exempt and will not be disclosed.

If I can provide any clarification that will help expedite your attention to my request, please contact me at tel. no. 310-619-6260 or email me I ask that you notify me of any duplication costs exceeding $50 before you duplicate the records so that I may decide which records I want copied.

Please be advised that I am prepared to pursue whatever legal remedy necessary to obtain access to the requested records.

Thank you for your assistance.

Regarding Gordon Nye Frank who passed away on 8/5/2007.I am the daughter of Gordon Nye Frank. Your registered number of death cert 3200733007967. Passed away on 8/5/2007. I am requesting the following.
1. Regarding my fathers death-we are told a heart attack. What artery was block? What was the color around that artery?
2. I am requesting to have a private autopsy. Please do not destroy any evidence or body parts, test that your office or any affiliates have. Please notify us who is doing the further test and where any test and by who would be located.
3. Please contact me as we have been told by the detective that we cannot have any information until their investigation is done.
4. How do we get this information now before the case is closed.
5. The people who did cpr on my dad said his chest would not raise while trying cpr. They heard noise from the stomach. They tried many positions and ways to open the airway. What was investigated regarding this? Please contact me as soon as possible.
6. I am questioning why the person who I believe caused this has not been investigated? Was not drug tested at the time, when he has been convicted twice for drug use and was told he looked like he was on drugs. And as of this date has not been tested.
7. There has not been a background check on Ty Reddish.
8. I have been told by several people his involvement in drugs, dealing, growing.
9. I have been told there is a man in jail for 12 years that tried to kill his mother in law. I have been told by two people the gun was provided by Ty Reddish. I asked if he was investigated or arrested for that and he was not.
10. The father is a coach at the high school for wrestling. Have any of the investigators or their children gone to school or been coached by Mr. Reddish? Does he train local police or one of his friends? Should the people who are doing this investigation step back and say it is a conflict of interest to work on this case?
11. Where is a safe place as we tip that people here can feel safe to report to and gather information that we also can see? We want to stop this escalating violence. There are many incidences that if gathered show a problem here. Please contact me.
