When Murray's son realized that Murray Cohen did not die of natural causes, and in fact was a victim of a cold blooded murder, and the Sarasota Sheriff's Department was covering up their mistake, he turned to Florida Department of Law Enforcement for help.
Why would FDLE want to smear Murray's son when he turned to them for help with irrefutable evidence?
Why was FDLE trying so hard to not get involved in Murray's case?
See internal emails obtained through a public records request:
Here are the names of the members of FDLE who have chosen to obstruct justice and/or turned their heads and looked the other way:
Michael O Connel- Executive Investigations
John Stevens- Executive Investigations
Ed DeBalasco- Executive Investigations
Guy Tunnel- Former Head of FDLE
Chris Siemers- Sarasota Agent
Andrew Rose- Investigating Agent
Steve Emerson- Investigating Agent
Jim Lutton- Agent
Vicky Marsey- Agent
Why didn't FDLE thoroughly question audio expert Ginsberg?
On December 7th, 2007, Certified Dictaphone Expert, William Tidwell, conducted a sixteen hour examination of the hard drive which contained the 911 recording regarding my father’s death. The name of the system in place the day of my father’s death was a Freedom Dictaphone System.
Mr. Tidwell was assigned to the Sarasota Sheriff’s 911 call center by Dictaphone to handle any trouble shooting or problems with the system in use. No one knew the system better than Mr. Tidwell.
During the sixteen hour examination, Mr. Tidewell discovered that all the 911 calls made the day of my father’s death, (January 13, 2003), were deliberately deleted from the main recorder and the back up auxiliary recorder. Here is his affidavit which was ignored by Sheriff Balkwill and his General Counsel, Kurt Hoffman. Both refused our request for an immediate investigation. To this day, the Sarasota Sheriff’s Department refuses to allow anyone to hear the master copy or the archived DVD pertaining to the 911 call regarding my father’s death.

FDLE Inquiry Report
Why didn't FDLE agent Andrew Rose request audio expert Ginsberg to make a sworn statement?
Why did FDLE agent Rose accept a copy of the 911 call in which he describes "poor quality"?
Is this the kind of investigation that will uncover mistakes?
On June 4, 2009, a public records request was made for a copy of the 911 recording that agent rose obtained from the Sarasota Sheriff’s Department, in which he described in his report. On June 3, 2009, I received an email from the General Counselor of FDLE informing me that agent Rose no longer had the copy. Why would agent Rose get rid of the copy he obtained from Sarasota Sheriff’s Department?
Why did FDLE Agent Rose falsify his report?
Why did FDLE Agent Rose falsify William Tidwell's statement?
Is it any surprise that FDLE Agent Rose's inferior review would lead to this conclusion:
