Mel Gibson's tapes have been examined by the same audio experts that worked on the Natalie Holloway and JonBenet' Ramsey cases. The voices are on separate tracks which can be heard when Gibson's estranged girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva, speaks with much more clarity than he does, according to ABC News.
Gibson has not commented on these vile tapes, which have been released by RadarOnline at the rate of one a day since the beginning of this week. There are now five tapes all together on RadarOnline.
It is more than likely the voice on these disgusting tapes is Mel Gibson, but the experts believe they have been cut and pasted together for more of an impact. They do not believe it was RadarOnline that has cut the tape. They believe the tapes were edited by the original source, with releasing them to the public in mind, before they were given to RadarOnline.
One of the forensic audio experts, Arlo West, appeared on Good Morning America today to explain why he believes these tapes were altered. Even the viewers have written in with questions about the tape because Oksana sounds so clear and Gibson does not. West believes the tapes were done with "a professional microphone and were professionally edited for distribution". No one is disputing that it is Mel Gibson on the tapes, it is just that words and phrases appeared to be pasted together to get these professionally sounding tapes. He believes there is no question about it – the tapes were altered.
