A freelance journalist with connections to several San Francisco news outlets claimed his home was raided by local and federal law enforcement agents early Friday morning in connection to the leak of sensitive police records related to the death of former public defender Jeff Adachi.

In an interview with the San Francisco Examiner published late Friday evening, Bryan Carmody claimed agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation executed a search warrant on his home early Friday morning and confiscated several electronic devices, including cellphones and computers.

A search warrant was also executed on Carmody’s office where police located a copy of an investigatory report connected to Adachi’s death, Carmody said.

Adachi was found dead in mid-February after having dinner with a friend, police said. The county coroner determined Adachi died from a mixture of cocaine and ethanol ingestion, according to a medical report recently released.

Shortly after his death, the San Francisco Police Department launched an investigation. Within days, sensitive investigatory records — including crime scene photographs — were published by a number of television news stations, including ABC station KGO-TV.

Dan Noyes, the investigative reporter who aired numerous reports based on the investigative material, pledged not to reveal the identity of his source. But an investigator with the public defender’s office revealed last month that an unidentified news stringer was shopping copies of the report to various news outlets, including an unnamed KRON-TV reporter who complained her station could not afford the staggering $2,500 price tag.
