Judge denies request for public release of Shannan Gilbert 911 recordings
A judge has denied a request to allow the public release of 911 tapes linked to the Gilgo Beach murders.
Shannan Gilbert's family attorney John Ray has already obtained those tapes. He says the calls made by Gilbert, 24, and Oak Beach residents reveal the truth about what happened the night she went missing in 2010.
Ray says the tapes are key to finding out what happened to Gilbert, who was found dead in an Oak Beach marsh in December 2011. The search for her uncovered the remains of 10 other people. She had been missing since May 2010.
Last month, Ray said Suffolk police “have taken the position that they don’t know why Shannan died. Although, it is very clear from all the facts…that Shannan was murdered.”
“The tapes and the transcripts will be used against what the police said occurred on that fateful night,” he continued. “Those tapes are shocking. Those tapes will be very disturbing to the public.”
Ray says there is another hearing scheduled for next month to determine whether a specific person or entity could also be given access to the tapes.
