    I think you are correct. I believe this will bring them closure, as we can only speculate what.... I do wonder if evidence pertaining to Gabby's homicide will be released. I really don't know if the case is soon solved. Since the poi is deceased, how is a case closed at this point? To your point, I suspect Gabby's family will use their time to honour her memory with the foundation.

    Posthumous prosecution is really really rare. Can't imagine that happening in this sort of case. It's definitely a very sad case but frankly, people get killed every day. But prosecuting Brian after death would put him in a very select group along with Joan of Arc, Thomas Beckett, John Wycliff, and Martin Borman.

    Regarding the L's presence in the Reserve yesterday:
    Wouldn't LE have briefed them before they set out on foot as to what not to do if they discover anything?
    Some former FBI lady just on with Dan Abrams just said they would have been frisked before their "search" began.
    Ok fine, but wouldn't LE have emphatically told them not to touch or pick up anything?!?
    So the Fox reporter was following them and CL supposedly didn't see any LE nearby (?????) so he took the dry bag because he was worried the reporter would get to it?
    ??????

    moo.

    He did escape justice, IMO. Ask any family member of a murder victim where the perpetrator has absconded or committed suicide. I would think they feel somewhat cheated.

    That’s what it looks like to me. JMO but I would assume that the remains would be in the custody of medical examiner for now and released to the family after manner and cause of death has been determined. It does appear to be a more dignified mode of transportation than an FBI evidence respone van IMO.

    Right, but the claims that his parents helped him evade are just not accurate. He was at his parents' place and LE knew it. They had ample opportunity to apprehend Brian should they want to. On the 13th he told his parents he was going for a hike. When he didn't return from that hike in a timely manner his parents notified the FBI the same day, as claimed by Bertolino. What more could they have done?

    I have actually been giving a great deal of though to the question of whether or not Brian confessed to his parents. My gut on this is no. Definitely not right away, but maybe toward the end. In my view Brian is looking after Brian. He is going to say whatever furthers his own goals. I suspect he planned suicide all along. So what did he say in order to manipulate his parents? Whatever he felt would work.

    That's a good one. I can see myself filing a wrongful death suit against the Estate of Brian Laundrie over just the phone records.

    If I lost my client and he ended up dead while I was refusing to produce him to LE, I'd be really upset, not taking victory laps.

    For this outcome?
    They hired him to protect their child.
    Their child is dead.

    Agree with you in the broader sense - the whole case has been full of contradictory statements & have said many times it's so frustrating to pin things down even though I try & recheck the links & get the facts & quotes straight. Often the quotes themselves are inaccurate.

    But re this particular memory failure from the Ls, because I don't know why the L's made this mistake I just can't judge if that was deceit, callousness or memory loss.

    I can't even get a basic handle on the Laundrie parents because I have never heard them speak.

    Ditto that. And I don't think we have any proof that he ever spoke with, took notes from, or really represented BL in any way shape or form except via his (the lawyer's) contradictory tweets. That seems highly suspect to me, as I do believe it's true. He is a friend of the parents and they couldn't have been so clueless as to think he represented them all despite the differences in what they were bringing to the table. There are principals in this case, the Laundrie parents and the lawyer, who should cringe at the way they have influenced the outcome, the death of a young man. He could have gone to prison, ironically have gotten a good education, and made something of his life while away from all those adults making decisions to "save" him. IMO

    They never said that. They said they "knew exactly where he was" repeatedly until the 17th, when he was reported missing, and then their PR became "We had no reason to keep him under surveillance, he wasn't a suspect in a crime, we don't track citizens, and you are all a bunch of meanies" (paraphrasing slightly).

    I think that some form of justice, however small, could be from BL confessing to his acts in his journal.

    This is what stands out to me as well. So many who call themselves experts got this so wrong.

    MOO.

    On what specific grounds could he have been apprehended between 11th and13th?

    Her family fought so hard for it to become law (if you look it up, It’s really interesting, it’s on wiki, not sure I can share due to being DV related) Maybe they could make a gabbys law. I personally would love that and what a way for her to help other people. MOO
