RIVERHEAD, N.Y. (AP) -- A Long Island judge has ordered police to turn over recordings and transcripts of a 911 call made by a woman whose 2010 disappearance led to the discovery of 10 people's remains.

The Suffolk County Police Department has been given about three weeks to provide attorneys with the recorded call by Shannan Gilbert.

According to Newsday , Gilbert's estate is suing a man who saw her before she disappeared in 2010. It alleges he gave her narcotics to calm her then let her leave his house.

Authorities say Gilbert, who was eventually found in a watery marsh, apparently drowned.

The search for the 24-year-old sex worker led to the 10 bodies in 2010 and 2011. Investigators believe they were dumped by a killer or killers along an ocean parkway.
