Once Again, Sheriff Knight Tries To Explain The House Of Cards:
Sheriff Knight's Response
How many other murder suspects are afforded special favors from the law enforcement agency investigating them for possibly committing a murder?
Killer's Special Request and Response
While being investigated for possibly committing a homicide, Amurrio requested an appointment with Sheriff Balkwill, and how she could donate money to the Sarasota Sheriff's Fallen Family Fund.

Detective Hallisey created a false timeline to change the fact that Murray Cohen's stock broker, who had a pre-arranged appointment, was an ear witness to Murray Cohen's murder. Hallisey also created this false timeline to hide the fact that my father suffered for 20 minutes before dying.
Evidence Of False Timeline Created By Detective Chris Hallisey:
Two days after Murray Cohen's death, Detective Dave Scott requested a copy of the 911 recording regarding Murray Cohen's death. He was required to fill out a form and was asked to be specific in the time of the call in which he was requesting a copy.

Why does Sheriff Knight refuse to speak with former SSO homicide detective Gary Ferguson?
Why did former Sheriff William Balkwill ignore Detective Ferguson's findings of a cold blooded murder?
The Undoing Of The House Of Cards:
The offical story from Sarasota Sheriff's Department and all government agencies in Florida is that the Cohen Case has been fully investigated by former Governor Jeb Bush, Florida Department of Law Enforcement, FBI, and Senator Bill Nelson. The truth is none of the above mentioned have investigated the circumstances surrounding, or the cause of death of Murray B. Cohen. The FBI was only asked to listen to a recording and make a transcript- period. FDLE was asked to only review the existing file created by SSO- period. Former Governor Jeb Bush only ordered a review of the Cohen case- period. Senator Bill Nelson sent a copy of the 911 recording in which the quality was good enough to hear Murray Cohen's murder directly to the FBI laboratory on our behalf. The FBI refused to open the package. Senator Nelson received a letter from the Justice Department culminating the whitewash with the biggest falsehood of them all. Senator Nelson was told in the letter that a detective, hired by Mr. Esdale, went into the Sarasota FBI headquarters and met with FBI Agent Lynn Billings. The letter stated to Senator Nelson that Agent Billings did not hear Murray Cohen asking for help where Mr. Esdale claims he is. Therefore, the FBI will not be able to get involved. There's only one problem to this statement: after receiving this report I called the Sarasota FBI and asked to speak with Agent Billings. I read the letter to her regarding where they claim she did not hear Murray Cohen requesting assistance. Agent Billings openly stated that she heard a man say, on both CD's, "You said you were going to get me an abulance". And when I confronted her with this innacuracy, she told me I would have to take this up with her supervisor.
