    There was another homicide close to the same time as Gabby’s, of a married couple outside Moab, UT. Does anyone know what the investigation of that has turned up?

    My bad then... I assumed the black thing sticking out of the bag was the corner of a notebook (laptop).

    I can't get my head around the Laundries turning up to search and finding BLs stuff. Surely LE was shadowing them? And human bones possibly found. Again, who exactly found these? It is all a bit suss to me. And hard to catch up in Australia when we have just woken up to this news.

    Thank you for explaining! All I've seen is that footage of those strange boats that seem to run on fans (?) gliding over long wet grass lol.

    a swamp isnt always swampy if that makes any sense....it can dry out in areas especially that close to the walking trail, it could just be muddy in some areas..... its all according to the weather and tme of year.

    So, if this wasn't the location, where did CL join them searching last week (gosh, was that last week or the week before - time is flying)? 2 days he went out there and nothing....that wasn't here?

    They can be scavengers.
    Coyotes
    What do urban coyotes eat? - | Urban Coyote Research
    Coyotes are generally scavengers and predators of small prey but can shift to large prey occasionally.
    Bobcats
    What do urban coyotes eat? - | Urban Coyote Research
    Their primary diet is rabbit, but they also eat rodents, beaver, peccaries, birds and bats, and deer. They are also scavengers.

    (least likely to scavenge)
    Panther Biology.
    Studies by panther biologists have revealed that most of a panther’s diet is natural prey such as deer, wild hogs and raccoons.
    Gators
    American Alligator - Lacassine - U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
    The American alligator is an opportunistic scavenger and a top predator on the Refuge with virtually no enemies other than humans. Smaller alligators, less than 5 feet long, primarily feed on crustaceans, fish, and insects. Larger alligators feed on mammals, such as nutria and muskrat, birds, fish, reptiles, and crustaceans.

    I don't think I'd disagree with that - but for different reasons. Namely, they let the parents go in unaccompanied and handle evidence. MOO

    I am not sure how LE could have or wanted to prevent that. The area was open to the public.

    From what I understand, the Laundries contacted LE before going to the area.

    That appears cooperative to me but there certainly could have been risky alternative motives.

    My opinion

    I guess folks assume that if the body (parts) were under water till now, then so was the notebook. Otherwise, why didn't police find it before now? How could he be under water, but his stuff was not?

    I'm thinking they would say "we're not looking for any other suspects in relation to the death of GP" or something like that, right? is that how it would work ? thanks for your advice :)

    We will just have to wait and see how long before the FBI or other LE changes BL's designation from POI to suspect. IMO

    LOL! I just can't think of how one would ascertain that "this part of the swamp" is so much more appealing than "that part of the swamp." 100% of that place freaks me out. What was it that appealed to him in that location?

    This thread is moving so fast that I lost the post I wanted to reply to. But I just wanted to point out two things.

    One is this video of RL and CL with a searcher talking to them. If you listen closely to the audio you can hear the searcher say “how about you guys go back home...”, and CL cuts him off, pleading “I don’t want to go home!”, the searcher responds “No no, I think we might have found something...so I just want you to go home...” and then he seems to comfort CL right after this by putting his hand on his shoulder. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.th...aundries-mom-roberta-wipe-tear-dads-face/amp/

    This is important because it points to the L’s not actually being the ones to find the objects.

    Also, I go backpacking myself and own a couple dry bags. I’ve seen some people confused because of the wording, picturing more of a large ziplock bag or something. But dry bags can be huge and the one the searcher or LE is holding in the photo seems to be a large one. Something similar to this: Outdoor Products 20L Dry Bag | Big 5 Sporting Goods

    So it could be large enough to to hold about 20-40 liters worth of hiking gear, and they also have versions with straps like a backpack. All just IMO of course.

    I grew up 100 yards from a swamp and I had many favorite places. I think swamps can be quite beautiful. But I’m a Louisiana girl.

    2 different ATT stores yesterday.. maybe they were trying to RETURN the phone they just bought last month? Timing is odd with him being possibly found today. I still think he wasn’t there all along. Maybe he died within the last few days. But the timing of the ATT visits really throws me off then he just HAAAAAPPENS to possibly be found today.

    I don't think they will say anything else until they can identify the remains they found. I have always interpreted LE's statements in this case to suggest that there is only one POI and it's BL but reasonable minds can differ so I think we will just have to wait for the statement.

    You know, we can always "know" he did it, or "feel" he did it, but unless there is a confession or a huge break by examining something found at the crime scene or electronics or similar, we can never actually PROVE he did it, and I guess (MOO) that is why he is just a POI and not a suspect. MOO. For the recent attempt to arrest the husband of Alexis S, they had a lot of evidence (per the news stories).
