    Weird aside - mosquitos don’t bite some people. My partner has never been bitten. Ever.
    Me? I’ll get 100 bites in 10 seconds with repellant on.
    I wonder if BL is one of those that just doesn’t attract skeeters

    I'll believe its possible only when I see an ounce of desperation from the parents.

    Thank you and to all who responded to me...

    My BF's daughter works at the ME as an investigator, I never discuss her job with her but I might have to ask. It's probably going to be awkward but I'm sure she's heard about this case. What you've all said in answer to my question sounds reasonable to me.

    When my own brother was killed a few years ago I was able to get his death certificate at the funeral home but I didn't read it carefully. I'm still not ready to look at something like that now, so it's a moot point for me.

    I dunno -- I think she may have hit him below the belt -- in words, not actions, of course -- and he went off on her. Maybe she turned around & walked off; maybe she slapped him; or insulted his manhood. If so, "nobody treats me like that," he thinks, and he goes at her in a rage fueled by adrenaline, and it's done.

    Has the FBI formally asked for the public's help in this "search" in any manner whatsoever? If so, for what have they asked?

    Does your partner smoke? I used to live with a smoker and mosquitos did not like him.

    Dispatch is not to blame here. Dispatch relayed the call correctly. It states the 911 call correctly at the top of the report. LE dropped the ball.

    I don't know what to think....he seems to be impulsive, so he may have offed himself a long time ago. Maybe LE thinks that too and really just want to find his body or some tangible evidence that he was there. jmo

    It is tricky because you cannot participate in a crime. The crime-fraud exception to the attorney-client privilege would mean attorney-client communications were not privileged if they involved committing or covering up a crime. I think many attorneys would resign if they believed they were being involved in a crime if only to do their duty to preserve privilege.

    I have only faced this a few times but when I had a client who was actively committing a fraud crime and tried to trick me into participating, I resigned on the spot and terminated our engagement. I obviously was not going to do what he asked me to do (it involved submitting forged documents) so I just explained I strongly advise him not to do it and I elected to terminate the engagement and immediately end my representation.

    No client is worth getting yourself in professional trouble IMO.

    This charge gives them an opportunity to ask how he came in possession of the card, how came in possession of the van, did he have any permissions, are there any witnesses his account etc. Why did he leave with the van & card & Gabby's belongings from the camping area. This may open further investigation into dna sampling etc. The card & van use is after a criminal crime was committed. The material used is directly connected to the victim. The association opens more opportunity to understand details about the events. That is what I would expect if I was to follow a path of the objective evidence driven investigation.

    Not good enuff, IMO. Scratches don't match up to strangulation. Even if he's not built like a linebacker, he still had more power and less love than she did. Murder in the first, yes.
    JMHO.

    Yes, if he were in the reserve? I'm betting no. Having lived in Texas all my life, I would be the 1st to say that FL swamp land is not the type of terrain you want to camp in. The bugs alone would kill you in short order, or the infection you would have after about a week. In my opinion, he was never in the reserve.

    Not uncommon to see a general practitioner on Long Island. However, this is not the kind of attorney you would hire if you suspected your child murdered someone. IMO I would expect that if it was relayed to the attorney he would have referred the family to someone else. He could have felt comfortable representing them up until a certain point especially if he was a family friend or had done work for them in the past. Important to remember he was retained before they found a body and before BL was a POI. At some point when/if BL is found there will be an attorney change. MOO

    They have asked for people to report sightings, info, tips, etc. multiple times.

    They haven’t asked for “search” help. I wasn’t implying that they would. But if they want the public to stay interested (and looking out) they know they can’t let the headlines die out. They’re keenly aware that public interest is one of their strongest tools when looking for a missing fugitive.

    I'm relying on the neighbor who was interviewed about the alleged camping trip and that the camper was new here but it's possible that the parents initially wanted to test out their new purchase and head out for a few days. That trip may have turned into something very different after BL came home though. JMO

    I agree with #1 but there are always exceptions cue in Fotis Dulos. And with #6 I'm speculating that it was BL's way of indicating that he wasn't coming back. Whether that was for his parents or LE I'm on the fence.
    Good post.
