Is There an FBI File on Carrie Fisher or George Michael?
Here's how to make a FOIA request to the FBI after anyone, famous or not, passes away.
Write your request, include the full obituary from a legitimate news outlet or other verifiable source and the URL, email everything to this addy: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I did exactly that after Carrie Fisher and George Michael died and yesterday I received via snail mail letters from the feds, stating they searched their Central Records System and found nothing on either of them.
Do American democracy a favor and file a FOIA request today with a federal agency or official.
Now, more than ever, government transparency is desperately needed.
