I never got a hinky vibe from either parent, or from IR either. I thought perhaps they were trying to cover up that they had gotten a bit careless about supervising, but that most likely their story was essentially correct and DeOrr had wandered off from the campsite as they said.
And I'm not sure anything that has been said the last couple of days has changed my mind. I won't be surprised if evidence comes out indicating otherwise, but nothing that has been said qualifies as evidence. It's all opinions and accusations. Could be true. Might not be.
I didn't get a hinky vibe from either parent either, but a wildfire began yesterday, and because of the way it has spread, I don't know if it can ever be extinguished should the truth be the parents ARE innocent. Although all records are documented, all interviews recorded, and everything is sealed and will remain such until and unless charges are filed, Bowerman still has to be VERY careful what he says. Sure, he can withhold information, but he wouldn't lie to his constituents who are counting on him to solve this case. No one, not PI's and not any attorneys, have the investigative files. The ONLY thing the sheriff has said (because everything IS documented) is that the parents have (IHO) been "less than truthful". As time goes on and discussion ensues, keep those words in mind. In his very first comment (yesterday) he said the parents had been deceptive. That was quickly changed to "less than truthful". Less than truthful might correspond, in part, to the parents' inconclusive polygraphs. However, the term "deceptive" would have been a clear fail on their polygraphs, but they did NOT fail them, so he CAN'T (and won't) use that word because their polygraphs don't show deception. Bowerman needn't say anything more. Should this become a case by way of charges being filed, all those sealed elements will HAVE to be revealed. And within them will be the actual discrepancies, if any, of what the parents have said. There is little doubt in my mind that those discrepancies will be SO minor that in the total scope of things, they would have nothing to do with the disappearance of little DeOrr. But, they were still "less than truthful" and with that tiny match, began the biggest wildfire in the history of Idaho - a fire that can NEVER be extinguished. If these parents, during their multiple polygraphs, WERE being deceptive, their polygraphs, ALL of them, would have been a fail. They are not, because the parents haven't been deceptive, at all. IMO
