The only thing that I got from that video is "that I too can lose 28 pounds of fat and keep it off" and that CJ is a hard rock fan(ends video right before "Welcome to the Jungle"). Turn the radio off!

Maybe they didn't trust Dietl to be discrete.

Yeah I definitely don't blame LE for not opening up all the case files for a random out-of-state investigator who has etiquette issues. I do go back and forth on whether I think LE has a strong inkling of what happened, but just cannot prove it, or if they have absolutely zilch nothing.

I'm not sure I agree that it would be hard to do now that BD has said something on TV. I don't think HT would think about a recording device when receiving the attention of an attractive guy.

BD did say that he and his people have uncovered a lot of info. I hope they share it with GP before the Indiana AG kicks them out of the state for being unlicensed!

The Spierer's seem to be a pretty grounded couple... I trust that they will be able to make the decision when it's time to change their focus. I wouldn't be surprised, though, if they become advocates for Lauren in other ways... rather like the Adam Walsh story.

On principle, I'd have a hard time sharing if I was BPD. But I do hope they have something to share.

I've said this since the beginning. No LE agency wants to admit that they are in over their heads. Had the FBI been called in eaarlier, who knows where we would be. We are talking about a town FULL OF VIDEO CAMERAS ON STREETS, IN ALLEYS, IN STORES AND A GIRL JUST VANISHES INTO THE DARKNESSS OF NIGHT? Crimes are solved with one camera sighting but in this town, you couldn't get a cup of coffee at the WH without a camera spotting you, or walk through an alley, or leave your apartment, or drink at a bar...

Angry? If I were the Spierers I would be ANGRY. 10 POIs walking, talking, hanging out as if there is nothing in the world for them to worry about. I suppose if the case stays with the Bton PD, they're safe.

If they continue to let the powers that be manage the investigation of their missing daughter, they are no further along than they were when JW called them on June 3 and told them that their daughter was "missing."

There's drugs, out of state friends, people coming and going home for the summer - what is it that they need to turn this investigation over to the FBI. The fact that they're still "asking" for videotapes from businesses makes me physically ill. You GET 50 SEARCH WARRANTS FOR EVERY CAMERA IN THAT TOWN THAT MIGHT GIVE US A CLUE WHO TOOK LAUREN. You don't ask kindly, you bust the gd doors down. Just like at Smallwood. If you don't comply, we will come after YOU. This is a LIFE, a CHILD whose parents love her more than life, who will never stop looking, whose lives have been changed forever and yet you fail to use the EVERY SINGLE RESOURCE that the federal government gives you to FIND HER.

This happened in the Stacy Peterson case here in the Chicago burbs. At first, the Bolingbrook PD was investigating the case. The #1 suspect was the spouse, a veteran of the Bolingbrook PD.

I'm not trying to make any connections here, just pointing out the obvious.

How long is it going to take the Bton LE to say, this is too big for us. Bring in the Feds. The Spierers have that right, they deserve that right, and at the pace the Bton investigation is going, they should jump on it.

I think this is my third post on this subject and it just enrages me more every day. To say there is FBI presence is not enough for me. They need to be running the show. Bton LE had their chance and they blew it.

The FBI is here.. they have BEEN here... and although you say you'd be angry if you were the Spierer's, they have said repeatedly that they are confident with the investigation.

With the PI's comments about drugs and LS' disappearance tying into that, I wouldn't be surprised if the investigation isn't folded into a larger one, which involves the FBI. That might be a reason the BPD and FBI don't want to share with Bo D. Just a thought ...

It's probably just bad reporting but it does say this:

Police have interviewed Spiererís friends, including the people who were reported to have seen her last.

Is the FBI still conducting work in Bloomington? I know they're involved but is there an ongoing presence?

I would think it is better for LE to start their investigation by what they actually know to be true instead of what they think might be true from someone they already suspect is being dishonest with them.

How would anyone know? Seems like the media says they are helping.

I haven't seen any vehicles marked FBI driving around. There is only one agent assigned to Bloomington IIRC. His office is in the old Johnson Creamery Building.

No way of knowing if more have been tasked, actively working the field, or if they are just providing forensics and background check type of support.

I looked at the CJ youtube vid once and now it's gone. I couldn't hear what she was saying over the radio. What is her point of view. Does she think her vid proves or disproves something.

Thanks if anyone can help me here.

Its been a while since i saw the video-i watched it several times and i read her blog theforceofreason and she believes it was law enforcement. I just watch from afar-shes smart and very well spoken but they say she has mental probs. I dont know-i dont even know if i should be posting this. I follow on twitter. Ive never engaged in a convo with her. I think she was recently sick and in the hospital-so she was gone for a lil bit and i dont know what shes been up to the last few weeks-havent twittered(?)tweeted(?).
There is another video of hers-2 cops came to talk to her abt some fb pgs i think. Interesting. I cant remember the name of it-sorry. I just watched it last wk again so it should still be on utube-i dont even know if her blog is still up

OK, now that I hear this, I remember some words in the audio that she had some thoughts like this.

This theory is so far out there. No motive + witnesses = unlikely for me
