Summary:

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) used the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to obtain thousands of pages of documents about the deaths of 190 detainees in American-run prisons. The ACLU contends 25 to 30 of those deaths constituted "unjustified homicide."

Notes:

The ACLU filed the request with the Department of Defense in 2009, and eventually received 2,624 pages of documents. The records include about 124 autopsy reports and 133 investigation reports.
