TALE OF THE TAPE: Boca Murder Suicide 911 Calls Released


BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The 911 calls from the murder suicide Wednesday have been made public by Boca Raton Police.

The dramatic calls for help underscore the intense drama as it played out — as former Boca Raton News General Manager Scott Edgerton — most recently working as the director of a mental health counseling center — sought out his wife, Sharon Bellingham. He found her in the offices of CBIZ Goldstein Lewin on Military Trail, opened fire on her, then turned the gun on himself.

Boca Raton's Police Dispatchers are overwhelmingly calm under extreme pressure as they work with tremendous professionalism to get information from callers who are scared, in shock, and panicked.

Here are the links to the audio:
