This is a follow up question from earlier. My name was "tipped" to the police about a high profile murder in my state. There are 13,000 tips. The police came to my house and talked to me. Do I have a legal right to find out who "tipped" me to the police? I believe it was my crazy sister in just wanting to cause trouble. It is obvious to anyone I couldn't have been in that part of the state that day, can I sue her, if I find out?
It is unlikely you'll ever be able to learn the identity of the tipster or the content of their tip. In a high profile case, that type of information is unlikely to be released even if someone is caught and convicted of the crime.
