While Bluffton police continue to investigate an October murder, we’re hearing chilling sound from the 911 tapes for the first time.

So far, no arrests have been made.

Operator: “911, what's you're emergency?”

Caller: “My friend has been shot and killed.”

Operator: “Is he bleeding?”

Caller: “He got shot in the head. He's dead.”
