Hello Ms. Titus,
On December 22, 2017, we received your request to inspect the following records:
CADs printout and audio for APD case #17-004892,additional information to locate the CADs printout and audio. Date: January 15, 2017 Time: Approximately 8:00 - 8:15 AM Location: 1701 University Blvd. NE 87102 (Motel 6) Offense/incident: homicide Victim: Darrell Young AKA Daryl Young
Unfortunately, the case agent informed us this is an ongoing criminal investigation and the records are therefore exempt from disclosure under the New Mexico Inspection of Public Records Act, NMSA 1978, Section 14-2-1(A)(4) (confidential law enforcement records) and (A)(8) (as otherwise provided by law). We cannot permit inspection because, if made public the requested records could seriously interfere with the effectiveness of a criminal investigation or prosecution. Additionally, if disclosed the records could alert potential defendants to destroy evidence, coordinate stories, or flee the jurisdiction. Further, incomplete investigations contain information that might unfairly cast suspicion on and invade the privacy of innocent people.
These records will no longer be exempt when the investigation is complete. My office will close out your request. Please let me know if you have any questions.
