    Yes, so odd. So much has happened I wonder if we even have a reliable source (direct quote from LE) that they even had him in their sights to begin with. MSM reporting is becoming worse and worse these days and is difficult to rely on unless it's a word-for-word quote from LE.

    Why wouldn't he need a passport? I have traveled widely and have never been admitted to a country without having my passport scanned or stamped?

    I am sorry things ended this way. For some, the value of life means nothing. RIP Gabby

    This is from a 2015 article in SunSentinel: The Cuban government has continued to protect other high-profile, urgently-sought fugitives, including a New Jersey cop killer and Cuban-born Medicare fraudsters who stole millions from the U.S. government health insurance program for the old or disabled.

    Edited to add: this is a US Dept. of State release from Jan. of this year “Cuba also harbors several U.S. fugitives from justice wanted on or convicted of charges of political violence, many of whom have resided in Cuba for decades. For example, the Cuban regime has refused to return Joanne Chesimard, on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists List for executing New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster in 1973; Ishmael LaBeet, convicted of killing eight people in the U.S. Virgin Islands in 1972; Charles Lee Hill, charged with killing New Mexico state policeman Robert Rosenbloom in 1971; and others.”


    So, yep, I think they might.

    Being uncomfortable driving a vehicle doesn't mean the same thing as being incapable and completely dependent on him for driving it, IMO. I'm not comfortable driving a pickup truck, but I can do it.

    I understand his parents trying to get information from Brian. My problem with the parents is waiting 3 days before notifying LE their son was missing. I have little or no sympathy for the parents.

    Agreed. He's a *talker*. And whether it's feigned on camera or not, I got the sense from bodycam he's eager to manipulate how people view him. He needs approval. [moosteer]

    I am not convinced his parents would be sophisticated enough to google extradition treaties deep into the night, then hide that googling, then get him on a boat, train, or plane out of the U.S. with enough cash to lay him over a few years. They'd have to account for the missing cash. This brings up the Q. of potential outside assistance.

    Do you have a link(s) or examples for his outdoor savviness? Car camping doesn’t qualify. Parental testimonials to his “experience” don’t qualify, either. (So far on WS, I have yet to encounter a missing hiker who could live up to the designation “experienced”, even though loved ones insist they are.) IMO

    Interesting. Off-topic (so no need to answer, I can Google :)), but I wonder why? Cubans are humans...moms/dads/brothers/sisters/boyfriends/girlfriends/husbands/wives just like the rest of us! Seems like they'd care.

    We don't know that they lied about anything. They refused to talk. That's not lying.

    Splitting hairs can be the difference between him going free and him being charged with a crime. If they obtain information illegally through their phones, even if it proves he committed a crime, the judge would still throw it out. When it comes to law and order splitting hairs is necessary. You can’t just “keep tabs” on people’s phones and spending.

    By all accounts, this terrain is nearly impossible for the average camper, so this is a good question/point. If he's there, he didn't go there to survive.
