Oof, speaking of islands...
If one wanted to get out of dodge and were already in Florida, it would not be difficult, not difficult at all, to find one's way to Cuba.
I met some dudes in Key West that boated that way often and, no shade to them, but if they didn't recognize BL as a fugitive, they seemed like the kind of dudes that would be glad to take money for a 90 mile cruise. They were basically transients living on boats who probably don't catch the 5 o'clock news.
It would be a place where, as a murderous defector, BL could find work, shelter, and food, and the Cubans would house him as they've housed other US criminal citizens.
Seems out there, I know, but the moral of the story is that the borders of the entire state need to be watched if he hasn't already slipped away.
Your thoughts aren’t that far out there. I, too, hope the investigators are watching the borders. The problem is, BL looks like many guys that age. He can blend in easily. It is approaching the time for a great need for seasonal workers in Florida, and restaurants and parks are so desperate for help, I have to wonder how carefully they would check backgrounds. Or if he’d be recognized at all. I realize this case has captured the nation, but people’s memories can be fleeting.
