Murray Cohen's Son Speaks With ME Dr. Vega Regarding State Attorney's Response

On August 1, 2013, I called Sarasota Medical Examiner, Russell Vega to speak with him about the response letter I received from  State Attorney Ed Brodsky’s office regarding my father’s death. I wanted to know if the statements attributed to him were accurate.  

One of the statements was “Dr. Vega found no evidence that your father ingested Corazol. Toxilogical analysis performed on vitreous fluid and hair obtained from you father do not show the presence of Corazol in your father’s system”.  I asked Dr. Vega if that statement is accurate and he said “NO”.
I asked him if embalming fluid could have masked the presence of Corazol. He said, “YES”.  

I asked him if he stood behind his public statement that he made years ago when he said “ I cannot rule out the possibility that Cohen’s death was caused by an exotic poison.” Vega replied, “Yes”.

I asked him if he agreed with Dr. Goldberger of the Florida Toxicology lab’s statement  that “Until case studies are performed on embalmed human flesh and Corazol, there is no test currently available to detect the presence of Corazol. Dr. Vega once again said “YES”.

About six months ago I sent Dr. Vega a copy of the  911 recording which is clear enough to hear him pleading for an ambulance and his wife of three weeks yelling at him to give up. Dr. Vega openly admits to me that the recording I sent him was much clearer than the one he listened to  and was made available to him made by SSO years ago. Dr. Vega told me “I do hear what I believe to be her yelling give up.

I brought to the attention of  Dr. Vega that in the response letter of the State Attorney’s office, they failed to mention the findings of one of the nations top forensic audio experts findings. It was the findings of  Paul Ginsberg who has does work for the CIA, FBI and the DEA. He confirmed in his report that the conversation in the back ground of the 911 recording is coming from inside the house. He also finds that there is a man pleading for an ambulance and the person who made the 911 call is yelling the words give up.

I pleaded with Dr. Vega to please do the right thing and exhume my father’s body to give him the autopsy that was legally required the day he died so that my family could have justice and peace. I pleaded with Dr. Vega as a governmental agency to request that the FBI listen to the recording that I sent him which completely captures my fathers murder in the background and proves that SSO has a deliberately manufactured poor quality version designed to hide the truth.   Dr. Vega refused my request to send the recording that I sent him to the FBI.

I asked him why he opposes the medical examiner who signed my father’s death certificate who admits he made a mistake and has recommended for years that my father be given an autopsy to determine his true cause of death. Dr. Vega had no response.

I reminded Dr. Vega that his job was to speak for the dead not corrupt law enforcement who have obstructed justice to cover up their grave investigative mistake. Dr. Vega told me his hands were tied and that if I ever wanted to talk, his line was open.  Our call ended.
