    why are they calling it a death investigation and not murder investigation. Is this significant?

    I think as someone said, they have to wait for the medical examiner to rule cod a homicide before they can call it a murder investigation

    from my perspective, without saying so explicitly, longo was saying that hannah had been found

    Repeating from the other thread: I think they can't officially call a death a murder investigation until the medical examiner determines the manner of death was homicidal.

    Probably because at this stage, there's no way to know the manner of death. I think after forensics and further investigation, it will turn into a murder investigation because the cause of death will support that.

    While most of us here believed that Hannah wasn't going to be found alive, the actual statement that remains have been found that LE is all but confirming are hers, still stings just as much as if we had thought she would be found alive. She can at least be taken home now and laid to rest with dignity and surrounded by those who loved her, which I am sure we all are grateful for, and her family can hopefully begin to live again, in time, knowing that their daughter's killer, and very possibly the killer of several others, will never hurt another young woman again. My heartfelt prayer is that God's grace may comfort and sustain them. RIP, precious Hannah. You have touched more people in death than most of us will ever touch in life. JMO

    I just have to say - the searchers in this case are absolute heroes. I pray that they are blessed continuously for the rest of their lives. RIP Hannah.

    She buried herself? I don't think so.

    I wonder if she was "discovered" or if JM spilled the beans. May she rest in peace. :(

    That should happen fairly quickly, yes? Medical examiner in the next couple of days?

    I am sickened by this. Such mixed emotions. Basically, I wish this had never, ever happened :(

    Yes, agree.

    Watching his face was interesting as well. He is very measured and purposeful in the way he delivers information. He gave a notable look with his with eyes when he first said her parents had been called. (not that we take eye movements as facts. Just saying I noticed his facial language)
