This is real simple. Destroying public record is a criminal offense. I think its actually a federal offense which carries a maximum 3 year sentence.
Find out who had access to the servers by putting Anthony Jones' nuts in a very, very, very tight vice. Then put the "professional's" nuts in an even tighter vice until he/they (erh...ciber..cough..errh) cough(s) up Nagin.
I can't wait 'til that fucking smirk gets wiped off Nagin's face.
UPDATE: There may have been an intermediary between Jones and the "Professional(s)". Someone had to either:
1. Authorize the email deletion.
2. Secretly allow access to the email servers.
At the moment, City Attorney, Bob Ellis, is highly suspect considering his wife, Daya Naef, actually works for.....guess who? HSOA...yeah, I shit you not. Oh what an incestuous snake pit this administration is. Could Ellis have authorized the email wipe in order to hide Nagin's connections with contractors...i.e., HSOA, Benetech, Netmethods, etc.?
Ellis is quite the character....multiple blighted properties in Mid-city.....do all Ray's peeps own blighted property?
