The 9-1-1 tapes relating to the death of Saint Clair County Judge Joe Christ have been released. Christ died of cocaine intoxication on March 20th.
The tapes record twenty minutes of a conversation between Christ’s friend — former Judge Michael Cook — and the dispatcher — while ambulance technicians tried to reach his rural hunting cabin.
Cook is under investigation for heroin possession and weapons charges. He’s free on bond and being treated at a Minnesota rehabilitation facility.
