MindFreedom Virginia Files Freedom of Information Act Request

The press reports that the Virginia Medical Examiner's office has announced they will refuse to release results of Cho's toxicology and autopsy reports. On 2 May MindFreedom Virginia filed a Virginia Freedom of Information Act request to the Office of Chief Medical Examiner of Virginia to require the disclosure of this information. MindFreedom Virginia has also filed an identical request under the US Federal Freedom of Information Act.

To:

Office of Chief Medical Examiner

Dr. Marcella F. Fierro

400 East Jackson Street
Richmond, Va. 23219-3694
(804) 786-3174

Dear Dr. Fierro:

Pursuant to the Virginia Freedom of Information Act, I request that you send to me for review the toxicology report, the autopsy findings and any other similar findings from the Medical Examiners office regarding Seung-Hui Cho.  Specifically I request that you send me those documents referring to any legal or illegal drugs that were in his system at the time of his death.

The public has a right to know whether or not Mr. Cho was on any legal or illegal drugs at the time the criminal acts attributed to him were committed. If you do not release the documents I am requesting, civil actions will be taken to secure the release of those documents.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

MindFreedom Virginia

Laura Delano - Psychiatric survivor blogger activist

Laura works as a peer specialist in the traditional mental health system and writes a blog at madinamerica.com, where she is sharing her story of recovery from psychiatry. After living with psychiatric labels for 13 years and taking psychotropic medications for ten of them, Laura says she found liberation in 2010 from her psychiatric diagnoses, from her reliance upon the mental health system, and from the once deep-seated belief that she was sentenced to a life-long "mental illness." Laura says, "I am proud to be a member of the MindFreedom International community for all MFI does to promote equality, justice, and civil rights for people who have been labeled 'mentally ill.'"
