The way I see it, we didn't hear directly from him before, we heard from LE who told the media their interpretation/ edited version of what he said/felt.Bolding by me.
Pulling this article forward because I’m finding it very odd that a week ago Dad was upset and wondering where his kids were at, but now is saying everything is fine and that “contrary to media reports, my wife isn’t missing … she seems fine”
WTF? I don’t like it but that’s just my opinion
Now he has spoken up for himself. Also, he may have received a phone call from her, after the media stories came out.
Obviously, if people just automatically believe he's lying, that's what they believe. Sadly, there's plenty of stories where, in the past, that has, in the end, turned out to be the case, and we have all been shocked that someone could do such a thing.
But I think there is a choice. Just because some people lied in the past, I do not choose to believe that everyone is lying.
