Your Afant requests that the court order Facebook not to notify any person (including the
subscribers or customers of the account(s)) listed in the search warrant of the existence of the search
warrant until further order of the court. Facebook is a provider of electronic communications
service, as dened in 18 U.S.C. 2510(15) and Minn. Stat. 626A.01, subd. 17, and/or a remote
computer service, as defined in 18 U.S.C. 2711(2) and Minn. Stat. 626A.34. This Court has authority
under 18 U.S. Code 2705 (b) and Minn. Stat. 626A.30 subd. 2 to issue an order commanding a
provider of electronic communications service or remote computing service to whom a warrant,
subpoena, or court order is directed, for a period as the court considers appropriate, not to notify
any other person of the existence of the warrant, subpoena, or court order. Such an order shall be
entered if the court determines there is reason to believe that the notification of the existence of the
warrant, subpoena, or court order will result in: (1) endangering the life or physical safety of an
individual; (2) flight from prosecution; (3) destruction of or tampering with evidence; (4)
intimidation of potential witnesses; or (5) otherwise seriously jeopardizing an investigation or unduly
delaying a trial. Your Afant believes if Facebook noties the user (of the above listed email
accounts) of the issuance of a search warrant, the suspect may ee from prosecution, and destroy or
dispose of evidence as he will know that authorities are investigating the leads provided by Facebook.
Therefore, your Affiant requests the Court to order Facebook not to disclose the existence or content
of the search warrant, except that Facebook may disclose the warrant to an attorney for Facebook
for the purpose of receiving legal advice.

The facts tending to establish the foregoing grounds for issuance

1-3

of a search warrant are as follows:

Your Afant, Investigator Joseph Kleszyk, is a licensed peace Ofcer in the state of Minnesota, and has been since
2007. Your Afant is employed by Beltrami County Sheriff 5 Ofce, and has been since 2008. Your Afant is a
Investigator with the Beltrami County Sheriffs Ofce. Your Afant has a Bachelors Degree and an Associates
Degree in Criminal Justice from Bemidji State University. Through his career, Your Afant has investigated DWIs,
assaults, burglaries, robberies, narcotics crimes, nancial crimes, property damage crimes, and many other crimes.
Your Afant knows:
Based on Your Afants training, experience, and participation in investigations and based upon conversations with
other experienced Investigators with whom Your Afant is associated, Your Afant knows:

On 06/22/16 at approximately 0330 hrs. Bemidji Police Ofcers responded to 3900 Irvine Ave. NE., Lot 824 for
report of a mobile home on re. Upon arrival ofcers established a perimeter around the trailer, which was illy
engulfed in ames. While on scene ofcers identied the residence to be that of Melissa Norby.

As reghters entered the residence to extinguish the ames, they located a deceased female inside the residence.
The deceased female matched the physical description of Melissa Norby. Norbys body was located with her arms
bound, and was positioned underneath a mattress.

An initial re investigation was conducted by Bemidji Fire Department and the Minnesota State Fire Marshall.
Initial assessments of the re indicated that it is believed that an accelerant was used to ignite the re.
Through the course of investigation it was also determined that a ve-year-old female was staying with Norby at the
time of her death, and the re. The whereabouts of this ve-year-old are unknown at this time, as her body was not
located inside the residence. An active investigation is underway to locate the child.

Your Afant and Investigator Thompson spoke with two females whom had been identied as friends of Nordbys,
Sarah Anderson and Keali Bryan. Investigators took recorded statements from both females.
During conversations with both females it was learned that Norby utilizes F acebook as a common form of
communication. Bryan stated that she believes Norby uses Facebook as her main form of communication.
Investigators were told by both females that Norby utilizes online dating services and Facebook apps to locate
prospective dates.

While speaking with Anderson she allowed Your Afant to View her Facebook account. Anderson was friends with
Norby and observed communication between the two parties.
Through the course of this investigation several individuals have been identied as people of interest. Law
Enforcement has been able to conrm that these people of interest are either friends with Norby on F acebook, or
have communicated with her or liked her Facebook page.

Your afant knows searching Facebook and electronic devices such as cellular phones is fruitful to death and
missing person investigation. Searching social media platforms commonly provides information on the events
occurring prior to a victims death. Social media platforms store information such as location information, recent
contacts with others, and activities of the victim. The information stored assists law enforcements with the
identication of witnesses, and suspects. Your afant knows reviewing data contained in the victims Facebook
prole may aid law enforcement in determining who bound and killed Norby, and the whereabouts of the missing 5
year old.

Your Afant knows that Facebook is a free online social networking website. This service allows its users to create
their own proles, which can include biographical information as well as personal interests. Your Afant knows that
each registered F acebook prole is provided a specic Prole ID Number to identify their Facebook account.
The service permits its users to send and receive private messages with other registered Facebook users. The service
allows a registered Facebook user to request permission from another registered Facebook user to be Friends.

These users are also allowed to set their proles settings to private, restricting the viewing

(URL: https://www.facebook.com/melissa.norby.1; Screen Name: Melissa Norby),
Your Afant knows through his training and experience that Facebook is used to facilitate conversations using
private messaging capability.
Your Afant knows that Facebook provides computer storage space in order to maintain and/or save the information
created in the users accounts. Items contained in this storage space can include electronic communications (emails)
between subscribers and other parties, graphics images and/or text les, intemet history and/or intemet hyperlinks,
le transfer protocol logs, website access logs, IP logs, programs and other types of data stored electronically.
Your Afant knows that Facebook also maintains records pertaining to the individuals and/or other users who have
accounts with their companies. This information can include account application information, user log in
information, account usage reports, email transaction information, news group access and posting information both
electronically kept and handwritten that records the activates of these accounts relating to the subscribers use of this
servrce.
The remote computing service known as Facebook is located at 1601 Willow Road, in Menlo Park, California. This
company provides access to the intemet to individuals and/or users who have subscriptions, memberships and/or
afliation with their company.

It should be noted that Facebook, Inc. is a foreign corporation located outside the State of Minnesota in the State of
California. The Court has jurisdiction to issue a Minnesota State Search Warrant for records held by the above
corporation pursuant to Minnesota State Statute 626.18 Subd. 2 (a), which allows a search warrant for records that
are in actual or constructive possession of a foreign corporation that provides electronic communication services or
remote computing services to the general public, where those records would reveal the identity of the customers
using those services; data stored by, or on behalf of, the customer, the customers usage of those services; the
recipient or destination of communications sent to or from those customers; or the content of those messages.
Your afant knows that F acebook is willing to take all legal compliance via their Law Enforcement Online Request
System at facebook.com/records. Your afant seeks the permission of the court to serve the search warrant on the
corporation via their Law Enforcement Online Request System.
Your Afant believes that the records retained by F acebook will assist law enforcement in furthering this
investigation. Your Afant requests the Courts permission to search the F acebook prole listed on the face of this
application.

Your Afant requests that the records retained by Facebook be provided to law enforcement as fast as possible, as
this active investigation continues to locate the whereabouts of the missing the ve-year-old child. Your Afant
