    I think the Reserve search was for finding missing items that may have been discarded! Personally, many years ago my family had a missing family member. We ALL remembered the last time we spoke with them and talked to them! It seems to me, the FBI had evidence the car wasn’t where the parents had told them so the Attorney says, “ confused! We gave wrong date!” I’m not buying this for a second!! His family knows, in my opinion, the exact time and date they saw and spoke with BL!

    Why did his family hire an attorney from NY? I thought they are from FL?

    I'm not an attorney but in general, arrests and indictments are public records, not just convictions. Since he's an adult I can't think of any reason records could be kept secret unless there's something peculiar about Florida. A charge of shoplifting wouldn't be "settled" so far as I know...that doesn't sound like a civil matter. I suppose charges could be dropped or of course, a plea deal could be reached. But the docket comes out before that morning. Otherwise no one including lawyers would know when their cases are up.

    that’s scary, we don’t have them here so I just looked it up. I guess I’m just hoping it hasn’t happened because I want him to be found. Certainly possible from that article and could explain why he’s not been found, surely the dogs would pick up his scent grrrr very confusing.

    If I were a neighbor or the Ls, and was upset about the media camping out on the neighbors' property I would research the local municipal codes and regulations, which would likely preclude that activity for over x number of days. At that point I would file a complaint with code enforcement and have them cited. 'Them' being either the media folks or the property owners. .. or both.

    With that said, I personally would prefer to collect the $$ per week. For that amount I afford a nice vacation somewhere else if it started to bother me.

    Not if he got the record expunged. It is entirely erased. This is a very good possibility.

    I understand the idea of a "family attorney", someone who can help with estate planning, real estate transactions, business contracts and disputes, minor criminal and traffic offenses,

    On the other hand, the Laundrie's attorney is based in New York. His website makes no mention of a Florida license. Florida tends to make it hard for out-of-state lawyers to get a Florida license, so I feel confident that if he had a Florida license, he would mention it on his website. He also makes no mention of dealing with federal courts. His criminal experience listed does no include homicide, so it is extremely unlikely he is death penalty certified.

    Currently, BL is wanted on a Federal crime not occurring in NY or FL. He is a POI in a federal crime occurring in Wyoming.

    I suspect he has advised his clients to obtain a federally experienced lawyer - that may be the reason for the Orlando trip by BL's parents.

    I suspect the NY lawyers tweets and messages are public relations related, probably at the request of his clients. Possibly to give the impression of cooperating with LE while not actually doing so.

    Was the 5 days a consecutive work week? He had to be there for exactly one whole work week?
    What if e.g. he was shoplifting and a company/individual said they would take him to court, but instead he could work it off, do community work, paint lines on basketball courts, clean swimming pools….?

    Yeah, I never thought that was Gabby because I don't think she would have bought instant noodles and donuts.

    He was sabotaging her work effort out of jealousy because he had to plans of his own. IMO

    Completely agree. Hence my comments in other posts that IMO they had little to no real money (maybe a couple thousand in the bank), and they relied a lot on credit. Not all ‘healthy eating’ people are this way, but from my experience in the Boston vegan assoc and some animal rights groups, raw foods, etc., I met my share of very nice but often poor and sometimes quite wacky people. Some who were always trying to get a business off the ground, but it’s tough.

    Apparently he has been representing the family on legal matters for over 20 years. Sometimes, its better the devil you know.

    I tend to agree that I don't think CL is lying, but after I listened to Brian Entin's interview with ex-FBI agent Jennifer Coffindaffer, who has been in LE for almost 30 years, I am reconsidering my opinion on what CL is now saying. I don't think she is lying per se, but their are possibly very significant omissions, and not all that are necessarily related to what she has told LE and FBI.

    I find it interesting that the ex-FBI agent believes that they should offer CL immunity and get her to tell more of what she knows, and that this could have a significant impact on breaking BL's parents and getting more information from them. I'm not sure what they could give CL immunity from, unless they really are certain she could be charged with aiding and abetting, or something similar.

    Someone posted this interviw with Brian Entin (NewsNation) and ex-FBI agent earlier, I will see if I can locate the link.

    She also said it is possible that the parents are communicating with BL through their attorney, and not directly. Interesting proposition.

    Right, if she still had her phone. I def can see him taking it away before he jumps in the van and drives away. Even if to mess with her head.
