Dear Mr: Boeckman:
The purpose of this letter is to provide you
with the additional facts we discussed by telephone a few
days ago to assist you in locating and providing me with
all the records concerning me pursuant to my earlier request
under the California Public Records Act.
1. I was called at work in early 1983 by an LAPD
Officer, S.J. Capuano, who informed me that Scientology was
seeking to bring criminal charges against me. Capuano was
somewhat abusive and threatening. He told me during our
conversation that Scientology agents had contacted him at least
ten times, pressuring him to bring charges. Capuano also
met with my attorney, Julia Dragojevic at the firm of Contos
& Bunch in Woodland Hills. He told Ms. Dragojevic of the
efforts by Scientology to bring criminal charges against me.
The charges related to documents I had obtained from Omar
Garrison and sent to my attorneys after Scientology attacked
me. The documents were already the subject of a civil suit
in the LA Superior Court, a fact which Capuano said the
Scientology agents neglected to tell him. The civil case
went to trial in 1984 and I prevailed. A copy of the decision
in that case is enclosed herewith. Capuano informed Ms.
Dragojevic that a District Attorney named Marty Oghigian
was involved with Capuano. Capuano was connected to the
Northeast Detective Division. His badge number was 14974.
2. A briefcase containing an original manuscript,
original artwork and other documents was stolen from the
trunk of my car on November 8, 1984. I informed the LAPD
by telephone the same day, and on November 13 reported in
person to a desk officer. A copy of the "Preliminary
Investigation" sheet is enclosed herewith. I was informed
by the reporting officer that a detective would contact me
Byron Boeckman, Esq.
December 19, 1985
to follow up the matter within a week. After about three
weeks, during which time I was not contacted, I called the
LAPD, and was informed that the report was missing. I was
also told that a detective would still be contacting me
about the matter, but no one from the LAPD ever did. It is
my belief that agents of Scientology stole the manuscript
and documents from my car. Scientology personnel have
informed me that the organization chose Eugene M. Ingram as
their special private investigator "because there are still
a lot of people on the LAPD who owe him favors."
3. The authorizations by LAPD officer Phillip
of the illegal videotaping of me you already know about.
If you have any questions, please call me.
Very truly yours,
