Audio and video transcript of the complete 911 call made by Amurrio on 1/13/2003
Audio Expert Arlo West, who examined the 911 recording and provided the audio/video transcript, confirms in his written report that the 911 recording sent to him by the Sarasota Sheriff's Office was altered.
The altered copy the Sarasota Sheriff's Office sent to the FBI was so bad that the FBI expert reports hearing Amurrio saying the words, "Mi Amor", where every other expert around the country hears Amurrio saying the words "Give Up".
CNN's Audio Expert Paul Ginsberg, Who Also Has Done Work for the CIA, FBI, and Secret Service Confirms Ammurio Can Be Heard Ordering Murray To "Give Up"
Paul Ginsberg confirms that the Sarasota Sheriff's Office sent him a bad copy of the 911 call and states that "the FBI must have been given a bad copy".
The most commonly asked question with this evidence is, "Why isn't this person in jail?". After Murray Cohen's son obtained a copy of the 911 recording through a public record's request, and discovered his father's murder, he contacted the Sarasota Sheriff's Department, who classified his father's death as natural, and told them what he heard. Instead of fixing their grave investigative mistake and doing the right thing, the Sarasota Sheriff's Department took the digital version of the recording and transposed it onto an analog cassette tape. This cassettetape was then copied over and over until Murray Cohen's murder in the background could no longer be heard. This deliberately, manufactured version was sent to the F.B.I. and a transcript was requested.
The F.B.I. declared that the voice that can hardly be heard in the backgroundmust be coming from a television. To this day, the F.B.I. refuses to listen to the recording which proves that Murray Cohen was a victim of a cold blooded murder committed by his wife of 3 weeks. The F.B.I. transcript made from the poor quality cassette tape is allowing a cold blooded killer to remain free and allowing the Sarasota Sheriff's Deparment to get away with destruction of evidence and obstruction of justice. No governmental authority in Florida will help this family.

Fox 13 Newscast:
At the time of Murray Cohen's death, Kurt Hoffman was a captain at the Sheriff's office and also was the Sheriff's General Counsel. Hoffman is one of a few police officers who is also an attorney at the same time.
Kurt Hoffman was present at the 13 hour examination of the hard drive conducted by dictaphone computer expert William Tidwell. Tidwell discovered that all of the 911 calls made on the day of Murray Cohen's death were deliberately deleted from the hard drive. Hoffman refused to conduct an investigation. One month later, when the Orlando Sentinel Newspaper made a records request for access to the hard drive, Kurt Hoffman obtained an ex-parte court order allowing him to destroy the hard drive. The next day the hard drive was picked up and destroyed.

2016 Presidential Candidate Jeb Bush is Responsible for Justice Being Denied for the Last 12 1/2 Years
As governor of Florida, Jeb Bush abused his power as governor and directly allowed corrupt members of the Sarasota Sheriff's Department to get away with obstruction of justice and covering up the murder of Murray Cohen.
Former Florida Governor, Jeb Bush, chose political loyalty over equal justice and rule of law in the case of Murray Cohen. After the Cohen family received media attention, Bush refused requests to appoint a special prosecutor and order FDLE to conduct a full blown investigation into Murray Cohen's death. Instead, Bush ordered a review, which is the same as a white-wash. With his brother, the president of the United States at the time, and a corrupted justice department, the FBI provided a false examination report which allowed Bush to justify not appointing a special prosecutor and order FDLE to conduct an investigation into the cover up of Murray Cohen's murder. The former head of the Jacksonville FBI who investigated the Cohen case stated in his report that the day FDLE was ordered to do a review, all chances for justice were doomed.
Would Jeb Bush have ordered just a "review" if this happened to someone in his family?
Internal emails obtained through a public records request show Jeb Bush's General Counsel, Victoria Brennan, had no intention of responding to Fox 13's call regarding the airing of the case of Murray Cohen. Emails also prove that members of FDLE who answer to governor of Florida had no intention of looking into the Sarasota Sheriff's obstruction of justice and cover up of Murray Cohen's murder.
