    GREEN COVE SPRINGS, Fla. - The 911 calls in relation to the triple murder in Green Cove Springs painted a frightening picture of the murder scene at a Clay County landfill.

    Erica Green, the ex-wife of Murray Lancaster, was found shot at the landfill where she worked.

    A woman who went to the landfill to dump trash at the landfill on Rosemary Hill on Tuesday morning and heard the shooting. She called 911 for help.

    “Yes. Oh my God,” she said into the phone. “I’m at the waste management thing where someone just pulled up and shot someone. I can’t find anybody. I’m at the waste management department at Rosemary Hill landfill.” 

    “Ma’am, ma’am, let me get rescue on the line,” the dispatcher replied.

    “I can’t find anybody,” the caller said crying.

    The dispatcher transferred the caller, who was asked for the status of the emergency.

    “Yes, yes. Someone just got shot,” the caller said.

    The operator asked if someone got shot at the landfill.

    “Someone just got killed over there. Oh my God, I don’t know what to do,” the caller told the dispatcher.

    The dispatcher asked the caller where she was located. The caller said she was at the place where they check identification. The dispatcher asked if the shooter was still there, who then replied that the person left in a 4x4 truck.

    The caller told dispatch that the victim is lying on the ground and it wasn’t known if she was conscious.
