The Suffolk County Police Department has been ordered to release the 911 call made by Shannan Gilbert the night she disappeared a decade ago.
The state Supreme Court denied the department's request to withhold the 23-minute recording and its transcript.
As News 12 has reported, Gilbert's disappearance in 2010 led to the discovery of 10 other bodies along Ocean Parkway, and the search for a possible serial killer.
Attorney John Ray took the county to court to get the recordings and says he wants to see if they were tampered with. Ray is hoping to have the tapes in about a week.
Suffolk police say they will review the court order and make a decision on how to proceed.
Ray says the call can't be released to the press or public without a further court order.
