    I'll be very surprised, actually astonished, if it turns out he gained access to the house through the top of the chimney. He was a smart kid, probably figured out how to open a window, and probably the police already know which one. Maybe there was a cellar window he figured out how to open.

    Most unused chimneys are capped. Others have exhaust pipes in them. My neighbors’ cap came off and critters got in.

    What is heartbreaking is that not every door was knocked on and an attempt wasn't made to contact each and every tenant or homeowner. Although it probably would not change the outcome, it is basic investigation 101.

    Do we know why he didn't have his phone? He left for school normally I was thinking although a little early?

    Agreed. If he was actually found in the chimney, which I have no reason to actually believe at this point, I think foul play not an accident. JMO.

    This is a short video that shows how Lock Boxes work. There are different kinds but most are similar to this one.

    What if he was murdered and they were trying to conceal him and thought chimney?

    This case would suggest that would not be a good assumption for investigators. Many vacant homes have unlocked windows/doors that wouldn't show a sign of being forced (actually, many homes in general have things stolen without signs of forced entry, so I don't think the lack thereof would rule out someone entering who shouldn't be there). Again, I understand hindsight, but it still seems like something the police should review as far as their procedures go. Not blaming them, of course, but clearly, something important was missed. Would it have made a difference? We don't know.

    Maybe they only found him because of decomposition odor after a hunch to investigate that house further

    If he was stuck in the wall, my guess would be the smell. An old unoccupied home can smell musty, but the decomposing smell of a body is undeniable.
    Personally, I don’t think he climbed in from the chimney, but if he did, he may have broken his neck or was squeezed tightly which prevented him from screaming. Would he even been heard? The house seems so set back from the road and if someone was screaming from inside a chimney inside a home, with the colder weather and less windows open, how could anyone hear him?

    I doubt we will learn much from the Presser this soon into it.
    I would be shocked if he was in chimney..but it happens.
    I would think it this is a place he knew he could escape too when he needed I think he would have left a window open at a previous visit.
    Could he have harmed himself ?

    If the green house is the home, that chimney looks tiny IMO

    I believe access to the home by the chimney could been achieved depending on the size. Perhaps he took his coat off and threw it down the chimney before he tried to enter it. Maybe it looked like a tight fit and he took his jacket off. This would not explain the coat hanging on the door, if it was indeed found there. Jmho.
