  1. I received an email this morning that included this response from the police: “I have no problem releasing this report to Mr. Pelline, however it is still currently being investigated by Detective Holdcroft. Until the investigation is complete we cannot release it. I anticipate the investigation and subsequent report to be complete in the next couple of weeks. I will let you know when its available and releasable.”

    Meanwhile I received another email: “Attached is the Face Page and the Call For Service Log per your request regarding the alleged incident. Releasing more information at this time, to other than an involved party, could interfere with the successful completion of an ongoing investigation.”

    So we will wait a little while for the rest.
