FDLE Agent Involved in the Cohen Case Fired For Misconduct
Letter to Agent Hildalgo, June 27, 2011
When Murray's son realized that his father was a victim of a cold blooded murder and the Sarasota Sheriff's Department destroyed evidence of his murder, he turned to Florida Department of Law Enforcement for help. Instead of obtaining assistance from FDLE, he was attacked and smeared.
Internal FDLE emails obtained through a public records request show that FDLE did everything to not get involved in the case of Murray Cohen.
FDLE Internal Emails
Why didn't FDLE special agent, Andrew Rose, 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 Murray Cohen's death. The name of the system in place the day of Murray Cohen'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 Murray Cohen'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 Special Agent Andrew Roses Report
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, Murray's son received an email from the General Counselor of FDLE informing him 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 William Tidwell's statement?
