Without knowing all the facts, it is a stretch to say the parents are complicit in anything. It's an emotional time for many thst have invested hours towards this case. We should allow facts drive our posts and not emotions. Loaning our child a car eventually used in armed robbery doesn't make us complicit to the crime. Jmo
I just wonder whether it is a crime not to tell authorities if you know someone has died?
Even if we give BL's parents the benefit of the doubt that they didn't help Brian escape, it's virtually impossible that they didn't know Gabby was dead. They would not have hired a lawyer otherwise.
And, then they sent a message, via their attorney saying they hoped Ms Petito was reunited with her family.
I don't know if any of that makes them criminals, but in the minds of many, it makes them the scum of the earth.
That said, I do feel a little sorry for them. Their lives as they knew them are over. The young lady who lived under their roof was murdered, and their son--if he's alive--faces a lifetime of running. Their hopes for him to have a good life are over, and people will always wonder if the apple didn't fall far from the tree.
Gabby's parents can hold their head high. They lost an angle. Not so for the Laundries. <modsnip>
