A member of the media has made an official request for the recorded phone call, which was not a 911 call. That request was forwarded to the Orange County District Attorney's Office for their input. The response from the DA basically says that the call evidence in a criminal case, the investigation of which is still ongoing.
In my opinion, there are very few records which are not open to public scrutiny. The recording in question is should be released to the public just like any 911 recordings. I cannot see any reason for it to be kept secret.
If the District Attorney feels it should be suppressed while the matter is further investigated, I suggest he obtain a court order barring its release to the public. Without such an order, I can see no legal way nor a logical reason for the City of Fullerton to stand in the way of the release.
