    I'd be looking at Laundries business address in NY

    Guess I am hoping for something novel....
    I think i would appreciate NC LE coming out to "cool our jets".. you know, like saying , "yes we follow up, and all leads thus far have been fruitless".... It might just ease some troubled minds.

    I thought this was how it worked but I'm really glad to have the confirmation. That former FBI agent's accusation was a bit inflamatory, no?

    Easier way is Venmo, PayPal, or Zelle. A wire is clumsy in comparison.

    MOO

    There are folks who are pure-hearted who refuse to believe that there are parents who would help their adult children get away with murder.

    Please hear me as I tell you this right now: As a former Domestic Violence Women's Advocate, there are mothers and fathers of Offenders who will say whatever it takes to exonerate their Adult Child.

    When the Petito Family called, texted, and otherwise reached out to the Laundrie family asking about Gabby, they were completely ignored.

    There was no good reason for the Laundrie family to ignore the Petito family.

    Right. I don't think BL is a big enough deal to risk throwing away a career. It's not like O.J Simpson or something.

    Also, AFAIK there is no charge or accusation of murder against BL at this point? So aiding and abetting someone who has been charged with bank fraud essentially? (not to over simplify)

    Do you think that there is anything in the works to put the skids on SB? I just keep feeling he is out of his league, and it is going to catch up with him.

    I keep circling back to a lot of things, but right now I’m still wondering why he isn’t listed as a missing person. Supposedly no posters up anywhere, as far as I’ve read. Even if the LE is certain he’s in that god awful swamp, it’s not a cage… he could leave, return, etc. Even if they don’t feel he’s a danger to anyone else, no nothing about him to alert locals who may not follow the news?

    Absolutely. Any act that interferes with the investigation or prosecution of a crime is criminal obstruction.

    As far as I know, there is no attorney of record listed on the indictment for the fraud case, for BL. The prosecutor is named. Has that changed? Dunno. SB is not his attorney for the Federal Fraud case. JMO

    Again, I understand what you are saying. But there are 100 counties in NC. So lots of sheriff's offices. (Not all sightings have been in the AT part of the state although many have been.) Plus police departments in cities/ towns. I'm just not sure who the NC spokesperson would be to say "hey, we've got this." Maybe the FBI? But they are saying zilch.

    It depends what the person knows. The statute says knowing someone has committed an offense against the United States. If BL murdered Gabby, it happened around 8/30. So if the person accused of helping BL escape knew he participated in her murder, he's still assisting someone who committed an offense against the United States (murder) even if it has not been charged yet.

    I do think you would eventually have to have underlying charges for this charge so if BL was found dead, I think they would have to find a different way to charge anyone who helped them. But if BL is found and then charged with murder, the people helping him couldn't say "Oh but he wasn't charged yet" since the actual crime was committed on 8/30 (or whenever it happened).

    I think that makes sense? I am tired so sorry if my answers aren't super clear.

    He could still aid and abet. But I don't think he is for the reasons Alethea mentioned.

    Ah! But he's been a family friend for over 20 years and this is murder. Time to call favors in? My current viewpoint is: follow the grins and you will find Brian. This truly somber occasion is unworthy of smorefests and grins.
    *Thank you for this info about accessory after the fact.

    Of course, a memorial does have to be wrapped up at some point, but I can't help but feel like the NPPD wants to start tidying things up today. MOO and based on the vibe I got from the interview BE posted earlier. Getting the father out there yesterday and then today they say they only had the car to go on. I cannot imagine this being the case, but could they have brought the father out there to try to turn down the local temperature on this case? Again and as always, MOO.

    Just my speculation based on personal experience: I'm a joint account holder on each of my kids' checking and savings accounts. (My name doesn't appear on checks.) These accounts were started when my kids were minors so an adult had to be included.

    Once my kids reached 18, their accounts were converted to regular ol' adult accounts. Each had the option of removing me from the account, but none did. It was easy for me to transfer money from my account into my 19 year old's account for school expenses, or transfer money from one kid's account to another to reimburse for a purchase (they use Venmo for this now, but for larger amounts they rather an account to account transfer, which I can easily do).

    When I log into my bank app, I see the last four digits of all 11 accounts on which I'm a party. :eek: As my kids change banks, marry, etc. I'm sure I'll be dropped from their accounts (as I should be).

    I know Gabby's mom lives in NY, but I think her dad lives in FL. It's possible either of them are joint account holders on Gabby's account(s). Just my speculation -- keep in mind I may have missed new facts suggeting otherwise.
