    Her objective would have been to keep it as dry as possibly, to prevent leaks and odors, so, something waterproof. Space savers sound like they fit the bill. Lime dissolves okay but she was not trying to dissolve, she was trying to and apparently succeeded in hiding this right out in the open.. poor wronged woman, forced to leave er home by her the first wife, forced to live in a hotel out of suitcases which apparently contained no clothes... possibly wheeled it into an open foyer in broad daylight and at night it stayed in her hotel room until she moved back to SC in probably yet another rental car, rented under another name, 'stopped to see some people along the road', maybe... all in a day's work for an assassin, a black widow. No remorse.
    Zombie woman.

    I think that’s entirely possible. It’s like they knew he was there (even though he wasn’t).

    When we learned about that rental car, I thought the door was open to her having moved his body (it was still pretty unlikely in my mind).

    Now I’m convinced that was the purpose of the rental, although I’m unsure how this all went down.

    I wouldn’t be surprised to discover that she moved the body on a couple occasions, ultimately loading him into a suitcase and taking him with her on her way to South Carolina.

    Thank you, I see what you are saying now. Those rocks would be pretty difficult to walk on carrying a heavy object!

    Could the "Blunt object" ALSO be the "sharp object" ?? Anyone know? Would they list the object in 2 different uses (or forms) that way? Ex- A hockey stick that breaks, then is sharp? Or a fire poke? Can be both a blunt object or a stabbing object?

    Does anyone know or can guess why there would be an FBI witness in the witness list from WV (West Virginia) that is really North compared to all the others? @MassGuy or anyone else?

    I don't know if the billboard is still the same as what shows on Google Earth, because I couldn't read it on the video of where they found Gannon..but I found the one on GE kind of a weird fluke I suppose but it says DIVORCE...normally I wouldn't give this a second thought but given who they're dealing with, it could be a "take that!" If it is not the same billboard I apologize but it looked like the same layout from what little I could see.

    a hard plastic tote would be easier to drag and/or push across those rocks. He weighed less than 100 lbs.

    Was it near that path going off the side of the road, which I’m assuming is an unofficial access to the river for fisherman?

    That's what I think it would explain rocks being found with him.

    Did she really use all those objects or was that a general charge? I thought the charge was Blunt force, fire arm, knife, "OR"not "and" sharp object. Like she used one of those. But they won't be specific on telling us which object it was. The details are still under a gag order. And also I don't think she threw the suitcase off of a bridge she hid it under the bridge in a small crevice in I live not far from that bridge. At night it is very dark and there's not a lot of traffic on that bridge in the late hours she easily could have just pulled up right where the bridge lifts off the ground and starts to go over the water and just dragged the suitcase across the rocks under the bridge and then took off . The I 10 exit is just a few miles away.

    I feel sick...
    I just can't believe she took things this far. She caused so much suffering. And to throw him like she did!!! I can't

    These are definitely distinct charges.
    Each one has been filed separately.
    8 separate sentence enhancers/charges, not just a single additional charge throwing all three in the hopper together.

    If you listen to DDA Allen in his presser this afternoon, he uses the word "and" vs "or" when discussing the firearm, knife, and blunt object charges.

    All 8 of these special enhancements were only filed today, i.e., AFTER the autopsy was completed.

    The DA doesn't have to try to guess what injuries GS suffered.
    At this point, he knows.

    To me, it's pretty clear that the ME found evidence of multiple injuries on GS's body, caused by multiple weapons.

    What does it mean: special enhancer?

    I will fall asleep tonight, like many nights over the past 1 1/2+ months, thinking of sweet Gannon. His infectious smile, those wide brown eyes, playing video games, and telling corny jokes! I've been praying that he would light the way for someone to find him, and this week that happened.

    Gannon, you didn't deserve any of what she said or did to you and I am so very sorry for what you had to endure. You were brave and your spirit lives on in all of the people that you knew during your 11 years and so many that you never even met. You have left a mark on my heart for sure. I know that you're running as fast as Sonic and watching over Laina and your Mom & Dad. I know you are at peace now! Rest easy sweet boy.

    How high is that rail?
    Any way under it?
    Suitcases can have wheels on sides or back or front.
    Are we sure ?

    The first row of the courtroom designated for LS family was empty. Now we know why.

    My objectivity has still not returned. It is beyond my comprehension how a big person can hold this much hate and rage for a little boy. Absolutely nothing justifies these actions toward any human. My only gratitude is that Gannon spoke loudly and clearly to get the extra charges added to her previous ones. I also find it to be rewarding that there is not ONE of them she can wiggle out of. One is more serious than the next!

    MOO, MOO

    I wonder if Landon had been in Florida when GS was reported missing. I think she was trying to pin this on her. She went thru ALL this effort, keeping him hidden, driving all the way to Florida, just to leave him on the side of the road? She could’ve found a permanent spot, to ensure his body would never be found during that long drive, but she didn’t even attempt to hide it very well in the end. Makes me think she intended on his body being found, and pinning it on someone who had been in Florida, near that exact area.

    That's just terrible! How could you just go out of your way like that to cover this crime I would have just take him to the hospital and turn myself in for child abuse its just disgusting! She's a sicko. I feel so horrible for Gannon's parents and I feel really bad for Leticias daughter. To have your mom's name and face out there as the biggest monster of all and to know that she killed your stepbrother I really hope she is in therapy.

    With everything else going on, I've had to take a break from WS.... This was the worst news to come back to. I am so heartbroken, though I think we all felt this was going to be the outcome. I just now fear it was much worse than we thought. :( I am hoping you all stay safe and healthy! MOO

    This is absolutely chilling....
    I drive right by that spot all the time going to and from my daughter's house in Pace. The Escambia River Bridge / HWY 90 is very busy so I'm not sure how she was able to put him there. It must've been done in the middle of the night.
    I actually drove past that poor child's body a few days ago. Of all the places I thought Gannon could be I never dreamed he'd be dumped in Florida. And I sure never thought he'd be found between my house and my daughter's house.

    Just awful and heartbreaking.
