This FOIA release completes what NCIS is willing to release on my original FOIA request. Portions of the release are still censored, most crucially, pictures of the cell where Al Amri was found dead, and of the air conditioning grating to which he supposedly threaded his ligature-noose. I have filed an appeal for a handful of missing pages, and for the missing relevant pictures.

Nevertheless, there is a lot to digest in this release, including reports from investigators on Al Amri’s cell and the difficulties inherent in concluding he committed suicide, at least unaided. Unfortunately, unlike most of the documents on this site, this particular document is not currently text searchable. Hopefully, in the future I will be able to provide a reworded document that allows for text search.
