Dear Requester,


My office will close out your public records request dated November 26, 2019 (identified as #19-7978), which sought copies of the following records:



  • I would like to obtain all records on the murder case of Jonathon Mark Saiz DOB x/xx/1991 from 5/7/2018 to present. 

            clarification: all reports (initial report, supplemental reports, and investigative reports)



We cannot permit inspection of these records, because they are exempt from disclosure under the Inspection of Public Records Act. See NMSA 1978, § 14-2-1(D)(1) (confidential law enforcement sources, methods or information); § 14-2-1(H)(as otherwise provided by law, including NMSA 1978, § 29-10-1 et seq. (Arrest Record Information Act)).  If made public the requested records would seriously interfere with the effectiveness of a criminal investigation or prosecution. Additionally, if produced those records could still compromise witness testimony as well as the integrity of the case. Right now my office is unsure how long we will continue to maintain this exemption, however, you are welcome to submit a new public records request for the same records at a later date. Additionally, you are also welcome to call my office and ask for an update on this investigation or submit an oral public records request.


My office will close out your request. Please let me know if you have any questions.
