    He apparently has criminal experience. I think the Laundries called him because they knew him. Not that it matters what connection is. Some mistakes and misspellings, have been made but they are relatively minor.

    I do believe that he was surprised by the deluge of public interest snd opinion. Most cases like this get nothing like the focus this one has. I don’t know if he would have done things differently had he known. It depends upon what he was told by his clients. That’s a big deficit we have— we do not know what BL told parents or attorney. They have to use the information he gave them because what else would they know? They and he (BL) could have lied or misrepresented, hidden info.
    But right now, Bertolino has reacted exactly the way a good criminal defense lawyer should to give clients most protection possible.
    For all we know, BL told parents nothing. Just that he needed to talk to a lawyer. And the lawyer then telling Laundries that they are better and BL is better off if they all say nothing and no discussion of situation, and act normally.

    i don’t know what FL laws are for reporting missing person. Laundries could not legally prevent adult son from leaving house. He could have just said, he needed to take walk to clear head a bit, going to those preserves. Could be a favorite spot of his so parents knew where he would likely park the car.
    Where I blame the parents is the stonewalling of all info on Gabby. They could have mounted missing persons report sooner and known right then that she was left alone in the park. They really had no information. But then, that’s in BL’s favor, now. No one knows when he parted ways with GP, dead or alive. And leaves doubt in what possibly could have happened

    I believe it would also be classified as murder if he chased her and she fell resulting in her death.

    I used to work in a grocery store in an area with high drug traffic and a lot of our local well-known druggies would buy the burner phones and then pay with cash to load them either through gift cards or by pre-loading with Western Union with cash (this required them to fill out a paper so a lot of them didn't use this option).
    They're relatively untraceable and/or you just keep purchasing the pre-paid phones.
    I know that BL may not have the luxury of just running in and purchasing more pre-paid phones but his parents or someone else who may be helping him hide out could be purchasing reloadable phone cards with cash and putting them on his burner phone from the comfort of their own home.

    Divers bring dive knifes with them. I'm unsure of any additional weapons they bring.

    sorry, deleted my original response bc of brain fog…the Bethunes said in their video that the only reason they have the video to begin with was because the husband forgot and left the GoPro on. It was just providence that they have the video to begin with.

    I definitely agree that civilians being on high alert for Brian makes hiding in plain sight more challenging, but I don't think facial recognition would be too much of a concern. Because of the pandemic, many people are wearing masks (especially in NYC and the surrounding suburbs where it's common to wear masks indoors and outdoors, from my recent experience) which would make it easier for him to stay under the radar. In fact, IMO it might (ironically) be easier for him to hide NYC than the Florida panhandle just because of how prevalent mask-wearing is there––it's a built-in excuse for trying to evade detection.

    I think the FBI must be overwhelmed with tips of Brian sightings. I live in a town on a west coast highway and yesterday I saw a guy with a backpack who looked just like him. Same white ball cap. I did a double take and almost turned my car around to look again. It's a popular tourist area so not unusual to see travelers with backpacks.

    It is clearly stated in the redacted search warrant (for GP's van) that BL's parents refused to allow BL to speak with law enforcement. If they have been cooperating it has been with their, or BL's, attorney. JMO

    No. They have to keep on search because they have a missing person report filed by parents indicating that BL is danger to self or others. And they have the whole fricking country and world watching them.
    Bear in mind BL is not accused of anything criminal right now. He is NOT a murder suspect. Also , remember, Florida refused to issue Missing Persons report for Gabby when this wasn’t big news. Also local LE wasn’t exactly hot on the search there initially. Stopped before dark, stopped for a whole. Announced it was done. ETc, etc. now they are under pressure. Also FBI involved. So they have to step to it.

    Here is a fact for you.
    The reporter Brian Entin, as well as the photographer for the DM have documented that The Laundries mustang was gone on Tuesday and back on Wednesday. The North Port police were called to the Laundries on Friday and told that Brian had left for the reserve on Tuesday and the parents brought the Mustang home Wed. The lawyer later released a statement claiming that the Mustang was returned on Thursday. It was a lie based on factual evidence. (All available in the media thread).
    Here is another. The Laundries called LE to report Brian missing on Friday. Later this week, the lawyer attempted to claim, that they had actually reported he was missing on Tuesday. north Port LE say that there was no such report made to them. lie.
    No, this lawyer and this family are not even meeting the basic criteria of telling the truth. Instead, they are changing stories to influence the public when they are criticized for their actions.

    Please forgive my typos I am on a bad connection on my phone

    IMO, he is either at that swamp, or he is somewhere else.

    “Do you know where Brian is right now?”

    NPPD…
    Wed. Sept 15 -I don’t know. It’s been about a miniute. At the moment, no I do not.” (approx. 3:22)
    Thurs. Sept 16 - “YES” (approx. 4:56)
    Fri. Sept 17 - “We 100% BELIEVED he WAS in that home…” (approx. 1:06)

    I think they're doing both simultaneously; looking for a body, and looking for a living person.

    I just think they're more focused on the former at this point.
