Suffolk police have been ordered to turn over 911 calls made by Shannan Gilbert moments before she disappeared in 2010.
The order comes from a state Supreme Court judge.
Suffolk Police had refused to release the call, claiming the move would hinder their Gilgo Beach investigation. However, the judge ruled the department hasn't proved how it would hinder the investigation.
Officials have tried to prevent the tapes' release and in 2016 filed a second legal motion.
The police commissioner says the department may appeal.  
The 911 call has to be given to the Gilbert family attorney within 20 days.
Gilbert’s disappearance led to the discovery of 10 sets of human remains along Ocean Parkway.
Their killers or killer have never been caught.
