Gilgo Beach Killings: 911 Calls Released in Case

On Friday, the Suffolk County Police Department released 911 calls related to the Gilgo Beach killings in which Shannan Gilbert, an escort from New Jersey, was heard pleading for help the night she disappeared on Long Island in 2010.

“Somebody’s after me,” Gilbert can be heard saying to the 911 dispatcher during the first two minutes of the 22-minute call made on May 1, 2010 at 4:51 a.m.

Gilbert made the call after she reportedly met with a client, Joseph Brewer, at his house in Oak Beach, a residential community close to Gilgo Beach, NBC New York reported. The recording consists of two calls; the first was taken by a local 911 dispatcher who then transferred Gilbert’s call to a New York State Police dispatcher.

The recordings were shared as part of the continuing investigation of the Gilgo Beach case, which involved multiple killings 12 years ago, the news outlet reported. Gilbert’s disappearance led to the development of the case as police officers searching for Gilbert discovered the body of Melissa Barthelemy, one of the Gilgo Beach victims. Suffolk County officials have said they do not believe Gilbert’s case is connected to the other victims.

Suffolk County Police Commissioner Rodney Harrison has vowed transparency in the investigation since he was appointed in December 2021. He said at the time that he “will not rest” until the “Gilgo Beach Killer ”, also known as the “Long Island Serial Killer” and the “Craigslist Ripper,” is brought to justice.
