    It has occurred to me before that BL, if he was suicidal, may have waded into water to do it. So that his remains might not be found, so that he could disappear completely. I doubt he was in a completely rational state of mind at that time.

    Maybe this was his "special track" but, did BL have a special "patch of brambles" where he would sit and meditate?

    They don't look "natural" leaving the area where they found the items, but i am not a body language expert. It's just my opinion and perception.

    MOO JMO

    It starts right from the beginning but gets more clear right about the 10 second mark. It looks like a body on top of a white tarp or table or something.

    I feel like Steve Bertolino’s legal advice was a smart move for the parents, especially if they knew any details at all about the murder.

    However, I don’t think he was considering the ways in which encouraging them all to be silent could lead to Brian’s body in swampland. No one speaks about where Gabby’s body was, leaving a long period of time for Brian’s anxiety to fester and overflow. The parents, encouraged to stay silent, waiting several days before reporting him missing. We don’t know when Brian died. I believe he died the day he left, but he very well could have tried to camp out for a few days — if they felt protected enough by their attorney to come forward earlier, he could have been captured alive.

    I do feel for his parents. Their son has likely died and I know that his mother will relive all the moments she could have spared his life by speaking out. These situations are unimaginable regardless of which side you end up on.

    I don’t think anyone has said the notebook had been underwater, only that the terrain where the Laundries found it TODAY had been.

    here;s another thing that could have happened, has it been said for a FACT tht the bag was on the ground????
    Brian could have hung the bag to a tree limb and then sat down and did whatever he did ....we dont know that he didnt, the swamp was only under about 4 or 5 feet of water, so if he did that then everything might still be intact!

    I wonder if their trip to the AT&T store yesterday was to get the location of where the burner last pinged? And maybe the bank for bail money? MOO

    Definitely plausible IMO. I could see that happening, I always felt like it was a hint from the FBI that they wanted something to detain him on but didn’t want to scare him off. They may have profiled him and deemed him a suicide risk from the profile. Definitely an interesting thought. Thank you.

    MOO

    There's another section of the bag not pictured. The hole is in the bottom right of the bag and something black is protruding out of it.

    I tend to think that BL would want to leave a story, or fable, aggrandizing himself. I can totally see him putting the stuff in a tree that would never be flooded. But I'm still not convinced he was in there the whole time. Maybe once we see a TOD, if possible. Somehow the parents knew where to look, and to get the stuff and get away before turning it over to the LE. I wonder how much the reporter(s) saw of them actually finding the items on the ground. IMO

    And I'd like to hear more about the firearm that was referred to earlier when he first was reported missing, after 4-5 days.

    Im not seeing that. i think the remains would have been under the trees. I don't see them picking it up and putting it on a table. looks more like bags and stuff they are working with. but really cant tell... doubt they would broadcast it that clear if it was. I mean honestly I don't think they'd find a torso, the more meaty parts if a gator got a hold of it, maybe a limb...

    Its really odd that they would pick it up considering the surrounding circumstances. Maybe self preservation ‘before anyone interprets what this is we should see it first’ kinda thing?

    Florida swamps are extremely beautiful, teeming with life.
    I love going into them.
    It's the insects that deter me more than anything else.
    We have a fantastic state park system.
    I urge everyone I know who comes for the theme parks and beaches to carve a day out and go to see the Real Florida.

    I zoomed in and watched several times and I do believe I saw remains on a small white plastic sheet.

    MOO.

    The clasps are like that because it’s a dry sack. Their is a black clip on either side so you roll it down and clip it together. You can put your items inside and they will stay dry. The white material almost looks like it’s dyneema fabric which is commonly used for the ultralight backpacking items.

    No. That's not a backpack nor a waist strap. SB also confirmed the dry bag is another item and is BL
