Mr. Bennett, thank you for your reply letter dated 4/9/18.
Based on your response, it is apparent that I should have been more specific in my original request to your office. On May 29, 2017, Michelle Dionne filed a complaint at the Biddeford Police Department (PD) against Chad Dionne. For your reference, I have attached a copy of a search warrant affidavit filed by Michael P. Hayes at the York County District Court. Page Two, enumerated items 1, 2, and 3 of the search warrant affidavit, specifically reference involvement by the Biddeford PD.
Since the time of my original letter to you, I have received replies regarding this matter from multiple government agencies. Those replies, as well as the aforementioned search warrant affidavit, support the fact that the chain of events leading up to my brother's death originated at the Biddeford PD. In an effort to avoid repeated confusion by your office, what I am seeking from the City of Biddeford are the exact details of the events originating at the Biddeford PD and referenced in said warrant.
Specifically, I am requesting:
1) Copies of all records, transcripts, dispatch logs & communication between Biddeford PD and York County Sheriff's Office;
2) Records of communications, both written and verbal, between Michelle Dionne and Biddeford PD personnel;
3) Records of communication between Biddeford PD personnel and anyone accompanying Michelle Dionne the night Ms. Dionne filed the complaint; and,
4) Confirmation as to whether Theresa Waterman was either working as a Biddeford PD dispatcher the evening of May 29, 2017 or if Ms. Waterman had any communication with the Biddeford PD or York County officers around the time Michelle Dionne filed the complaint with Biddeford PD.
I appreciate your assistance in this matter. So that you are aware, I have cc'd the office of the Maine Attorney General. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. You can reach me at the above address, by email at email@example.com, and by phone at 207- 461-1069.
