Those two groups now want me to file a FOIA to find out when SPS filed their FOIA.
Kind of funny. (I would ask the district but I'd like direct verification myself.)
end of update
1) There is a lengthy account at the Facebook page associated with the family of the student assaulted. I do have a few questions but I'll wait and see if the family contacts me. It is fairly well-fleshed out so they were clearly documenting as they went along (a very good thing for all parents to do should any type of school situation arise - document everything).
2) I called the Seattle office of the FBI. The press officer sent me a statement; they aren't answering any questions.
The FBI and the National Park Service (NPS) investigated the allegations for possible violations of federal law. When we conduct an investigation we take all actions appropriate to the matter, such as interviewing witnesses, gathering evidence, and, if appropriate, referring the case to prosecutors at either the state or federal level. So, while we can’t give further details on the review of this victim’s claims, we can assure you that the FBI and the NPS have investigated the matter and pursued all appropriate actions.
Here is the page describing the process for FOIA requests: http://www.fbi.gov/foia
3) I received a correction today from SPS Communications:
The District asked for both the FBI and National Parks reports. They said we had to file via Freedom of Information. We did, and were denied access. We know the family received a copy of the report and we asked them for a copy, but that was not provided.
I find this puzzling, not so much that the FBI and Parks wouldn't give SPS the report but that it took this long to explain the connection between SPS and the FBI. (I did follow-up with the FBI just to ask if they could give me the date that SPS requested their investigation.)
I have a call into the National Parks service.
