California driver’s license which was obtained from California authorities to assist in the identification process. Both identifications were then verified by comparing these prints with a fingerprint card obtained from the Guyanese Government of Ann Moore which was taken at the time she entered Guyana.

The identification of Carolyn Layton (Moore) was made by comparing fingerprints taken from her body at Dover Air Force Base with an applicant fingerprint card located for her through a search of the files of the California Bureau of Identification and Investigation. She was fingerprinted as required by state law when she applied for position with the State Board of Education. This was verified through a comparison of both sets of prints with the thumbprint located on her California driver’s license and a Guyanese fingerprint card of fingerprints of Carolyn Layton taken at the time she entered the country of Guyana.

For information of San Francisco, the Bureau is in receipt of autopsy reports on other victims, however, no copies are being provided to the next of kin of those victims as none was requested except for Mr. Steven Katsaris, who requested a copy of such a report on his daughter, Maria Katsaris. Mr. Katsaris’ request was handled by direct correspondence with him.

Should San Francisco desire copies of all autopsy reports, suairtel.
