A judge has twice ordered Suffolk County police to turn over the tape of Gilbert’s 911 call, as well as others made by neighbors around the time of Gilbert’s disappearance,the latest case being in 2019 where the police fought the orders,with department lawyers arguing that releasing the tape could jeopardize the investigation. An attorney for Gilbert’s estate on the other hand said police refusing to release the call was suspicious, claiming it could reveal information that would  be damaging to the police department.The tapes were however not made public as they were part of the investigation.
