    Did the Laundrie's know the area Brian would normally go in the reserve - Yes, according to CL.

    Did CL go to the same area to assist in the search - Yes.

    Has the water level dropped since CL was last there - Yes.

    Was the area opened up to the public yesterday - Yes.

    Have people been asking why they haven't made more of an effort to search for their son - Yes.

    Did they go searching for their son the first chance they got - Yes.

    Did the Laundries plan an elaborate escape for Brian and hole him up somewhere nice and cosy? - Doesn't appear so for the fact that as soon as they got the chance to search in the reserve, they did. Suggests a strong belief they knew where in the reserve he liked to go hiking.

    Did Brian die yesterday/this morning - Doesn't seem likely if there were only partial remains found.

    Bearing all that in mind, especially the last part. Of what benefit does it serve his parents to find evidence near "his" partial remains?

    I'm sure they will, but it won't be the same for them if something has happened to Brian.

    I assumed the black thing sticking out of the bag was a "notebook" (laptop). Sorry!

    Let me think - oh, police could have kept the place shut down and searched there again after the water receded. Instead we have this spectacle today of the parents finding stuff on their own.

    Nice--I'm from Canada so it's quite foreign to me! But another poster explained there's birds & meadows etc., & that definitely sounds nice.

    IMO, if you're strangling someone as self defense you'd probably let go of them as soon as they stop punching, kicking, hitting, bitting or otherwise hurting you. It takes a while longer of depriving the brain of oxygen to be able to cause brain death.

    Sorry I meant to add once they'd identified the remains and presuming they were BL's

    If the area has been flooded how did his things end up there? I remember when this whole thing started it was pouring rain in Florida so I’m assuming it’s been under water all this time?

    4:56:00 "...such as a backpack and notebook belonging to Laundrie"
    I think they confirmed the items to be his . just not the body.

    I believe the water has only recently receded as they are now about to go into the dry season.

    Don't forget feral hogs, who are opportunistic scavengers.

    And there is no shortage of turkey buzzards in the county, either.

    I wouldn't minimize it by using the word "just" in my opinion.

    BL was a POI in epidemic proportions.

    I would be interested to know what might have attracted him to the location he liked!

    Should we assume since LE said they would be ‘in the area for days’ (and we saw the large area taped off) that human remains are likely scattered all around that area?
