    The home looks nice. How do they afford it?

    They don't.

    It's in foreclosure and missing several windows.

    All just speculation..You know how it’s said that there is truth in lies. When the Dad said: “Just come home Andrew, you’re not in any trouble.” I’m thinking these are words he may have actually said to him. Something like: “Just come here Andrew, you’re not in any trouble.” Right before he wailed on him, maybe killing him. Also, have you noticed Mom never looks into the camera. She always looks down or hides her face in attorney. Just my theory: I think Dad killed him (possibly accidentally)and Mom knows.

    I had a similar inkling due to the relationship dynamic, the domestic abuse, the substance abuse, the foreclosure, the income loss, and his show for the cameras. As I said before, he was losing control of everything.

    Father of Missing Crystal Lake Boy Speaks to NBC 5
    LE said neither parent is cooperating. I haven't found anything from LE that says the father is now cooperating. Maybe that has changed?
    Also, it appears that the parents may not be on the best terms or maybe separated now. It's hard to tell. They each attended the vigil separately but they did hug at one point. I'm not sure what's going on there.

    Parents of missing Crystal Lake boy 'AJ' Freund have stopped cooperating, cops say; father back home after police escort him to station

    Agreed. I always look for body language and behavior in front of the camera. This whole thing makes my stomach hurt.

    I just noticed in the above article/pictures that the father is wearing a wedding band. I don't know what that means if anything, just kind of jumped out to me. IMO

    Most notably, she couldn't make eye contact with the camera. Didn't mention she loves him, just talked about herself and what she wants. Typical addict behavior.

    I thought this comment interesting.....wonder what was in the bag?

    "But shortly before 5 p.m., Freund left the police station out its back door, carrying a small white bag. He lit up a cigarette and began briskly walking to his home, a short distance away.

    Nothing definitive yet,’’ he told a reporter who was asking what happened at the police station and if he had learned anymore about the whereabouts of his son. “Pray for the safe return of my son,’’ Freund said."

    This is reporting from yesterday....

    When Cunningham arrived, clad in black leggings, a pink baseball cap pulled down low over a ponytail and one of AJ’s blankies wrapped around her neck , well-wishers hugged and encircled her. Elizabeth Vonau, who is a lawyer for Cunningham, turned around and said thank you to all who attended the vigil for their support.

    Freund then stood nearby, watching Cunningham interact before the whole group walked into the parking lot to leave.

    At one point, Freud and Cunningham briefly embraced, and Cunningham appeared emotional.

    Freund walked back to his home alone, smoking a cigarette, and went inside.

    Just started to follow this case. Considering CPS involvement and 2 “unfounded” charges last year, plus the drug angle, this is disturbing (huge understatement). And she’s pregnant again? Smoke===>Fire. Those poor kids.

    As of noon today LE is still saying the parents aren't cooperating, according to this article.
    Parents of missing Crystal Lake child stopped cooperating with authorities | Northwest Herald

    It's frustrating to watch parents talking tearfully about their children after one has gone missing when DCFS determined in the past that they should not have custody. I'm having trouble believing the kids are either parent's "life" given the circumstances. MOO.

    Do we have proof of DV? I hate to just jump tothat conclusion, without proof. Imvho, I view him as her enabler. He's much older than she is. At one time she was very pretty, however it's evident her addiction has taken a toll on her physically. I get the impression at one time she was a trophy gf for him......and perhaps, the money is going to her addiction rather than the mortgage.

    I have seen zero evidence of DV.

    I have been following this thread but haven’t been able to read everything. Has anyone found if Joann works or worked anywhere? Also, for those who live in the area, any word on if neighbors have surveillance cams?

    And who has a press conference and as a parent, you don't say a word? Sorry, if this has already been posted, but this is not how I would react. She acts more like a grieving mother from a death than a mother looking for her child. The media asks if she has something to say....nothing.
