A dear friend of mine was raped/murdered 1975. In researching the case I find the murderer/rapist, convictions and court records w/psych reports/evaluations. Not sure if I will write memoir, biography..... Most likely would never be penned for profit. Can I include these documents in my writing, as they are all public documents and the murderer/rapist died in 2001? I am not sure if these records/reports would have a restriction for publishing or posting. Also not sure if I am allowed to reveal the names of Attorneys, Judges, Psychiatrists and if they may still be living.
Any info. greatly appreciated!
