What I find bothersome about it is that while Gabby's family may never have "closure," crucial ingredients in that process are still missing: A report on what is known about what happened to Gabby, and also on what happened when BL went back to Florida.
The latter part brings us to the...
That's possible, but maybe SB would just trying to dirty up Gabby on the theory that doing so would somehow reduce BL's (posthumous) guilt as well as the Laundries' responsibility for not being more forthcoming. If so, I think that's disgusting.

The Ls weren't concerned that BL had hurt himself, but they went looking for him for 3-4 hours? He was grieving something, but at the same time, it was no big deal?
SB's statements, and the case in general, make my head spin.
I think that if that had happened, the coroner would not have said that both the manner and cause of death were undetermined.
I mean, they still might not know the manner, though of course suicide seems likely. But if his skull had been shattered by a bullet, my guess is that that would have...
If the remains are BLs and (as does seem likely) include important parts of his body (as opposed to just a finger or something), I agree that there would be little benefit in planting the evidence.
Note that my questions go beyond the issue of whether evidence was planted to questions of how...
I don't know if the Ls could have planted the evidence, but some questions do arise:
Did they know it was there? If so, how and when did they know? Was it a favorite place of BL's? Did they have other info that led them to that spot? Were they just lucky?
If the remains are BL's, what did they...
