How do I request information from a Police department in Seattle WA about my friends suicide? I dont believe? Topic: Wa case search records
June 15, 2019 / By Irma
Question: I was on FB and learned of my high school friends suicide second hand from another In the same class. The more I think about this...well it is eating away at me. How are they sure it was suicide? If Doug was here he would want someone to care. I can't believe it. I know there will be a police case file. What do I do to get info and will the Police department tell me anything? Thank you so much for your help. http://www.seattle.gov/police/contact/information.htm Thank you. I have made an inquiry into his death. on the website it does say Suicides are not listed in public records. Also--I found his street address and mother and father's name on ancestry.com. His mother is passed away and his father is a mystery. I will keep searching family trees there too.

If Doug was here? Sadly he is not, sadly he took his life, the question of why always lingers because we do not know and may never know. Contact the Detective who handled the case, explain your a HS buddy and was just curious as to WHY? Sometimes some things are better left as they are he took his life and need not know anymore as you can unravel Pandora's Box..

I actually work just outside of Seattle. You may be able to do a public records request to see what the reports say. However, it's mostly legal and investigative talk that won't give you too many answers. IT also costs money to do. If you have contact with your friend's family, it may be worth speaking to them. Beyond that, the police will not be able to give you any information on the case. You have my condolences. It is always upsetting to hear that a person took their own life.

You can request this information from the local police department. There's a charge for a copy of the investigative report. Sometimes the honor the request, and sometimes not. Usually, if you are not related to the victim or there is not connection to the victim, the request will be denied. And of course, the fee is gone. My advise is to contact relatives of the deceased, explain who you are, and start from there. Good Luck.

They most likely will not give you any information because you are not family. Believe me, any unattended death, especially by violence is investigated as a homicide until it is proven that it was natural causes, accident, or suicide. You have my sincere condolences. I know how you feel because I have lost some very good friends. It is human nature not to want to believe what people do.

I don't think they will give you information but they will probably be willing to take a statement from you if you have some reason to believe it was not a suicide or if you can make a statement about his character that will be helpful.

Cool. Maybe itll work out to paying $380,000 each for those customers. (The current progress of the stimulus that was supposed to kick right in and usher utopia) Maybe in the meantime you can distract the bankers by wearing expensive clothes, giving speeches about how terrible America has been, or perhaps denouncing nations like honduras for fighting communism. Whatever you do, dont plan on cancelling your talks with the store across from you. (the one that oppresses and murders its own employees) Its a cutthroat business Melissa! HA GET IT
