Leonard H. Stringfield: "The document is avowedly not proof. For it to be established as bona fide would, in turn, require additional irretrievable reports, memoranda, tapes, ad infinitum. In this regard, however, Morse said on several occasions that he had attempted to obtain a later Form 1569 Report mentioned by the desk sergeant, but was unsuccessful. Nevertheless, the Incident/Complaint Report, as it stands, is a strong link of evidence not easily dismissed, even if denied officially or by any of its named personnel who might be coerced to do so. (Note 4: See Incident Complaint Report, Item 11, where the box for 'Unfounded' is checked. Inasmuch as 'Unfounded' suggests that the incident was baseless, I asked Morse to explain this classification. He said that it referred only to the limited information available to his security police squadron, which was not in a position to evaluate the incident. Also note that the check in Item 13 indicates that the case was referred to 'Other agency' (AFOSI - Air Force Office of Special Investigations) for final disposition, including 'One body of unknown origin ...' released to other authorities. The security police squadron had no basis for any other 'Evaluation.'
