    Joey Jackson just said that the Laundrie's aren't off the hook depending on what they knew and what they told LE, and that charges could still be coming.

    Thx for the Baron-Cohen tidbit - I had no idea!

    And for some reason, I've fallen asleep in FC (the movie) at least three times, maybe more, and early in the movie, even though it is of a style and genre and substance that I enjoy. And yet for all that, I'm having to make a point not to "see" the characters in the book as their on-screen actors. Anyway, it's a short book - couple of hours - worth a read, though so far the movie appears to track the book closely. Maybe I'll try the movie again once I finish.

    Going to have to consider more on the "theory of other minds" concept, though. How does it square up with a hypothetical young 20-something who perhaps perceived himself as exceedingly unique in that way (a common teen/20-something affliction, especially unless/until college or independent reading/input flips on the switch to realize that there are a lot of young Werthers out there)?

    I agree. Maybe Brian should have just offed himself in Wyoming. He probably had no idea that he would end up destroying his parents and sisters lives too

    I imagine they had his lawyer's undertaking he was where e said he was going to be.
    I'm not sure how much they could have done about that because Gabby was still a missing person at that stage.

    Or, just plain don’t like him. As far as I know, that is allowed.

    The fbi has phone/text/computer records from the Laundies and everyone they know. Going back at least back through all of August.
    I am convinced (MOO) they have dialogue showing the parents obstruction of justice regarding purchases they made to help BL split. Possibly actual phone/text exchanges.
    The parents were the actions of people who were certain their son was about to be in BIG legal trouble, even before GP was reported missing.
    Maybe GPs family could sue for pain and suffering. Not saying they would win a case like that, BUT I could ,As someone earlier mentioned require the LE and FBI to disclose evidence?
    MOO

    Unresolved: why the parents were unable, during 4 or more hours of searching, to find him the day he went missing, or the following days had they chosen to search for him. Yet, a month later they made a beeline to his things, the bag and the notebook, and very nearly to the backpack and body itself. What happened between the day he went missing, when they couldn't find him (or did they?), and the day they knew, IMO, exactly where to look. IMO

    I'll probably never get past this story:

    Florida Disney alligator saw boy as prey, report says | CNN

    Absolutely.

    IMO, they cut off their nose to spite their face, as my mother always says.

    Bank fraud charges didn't come until after her body was discovered. Federal charges.
    They had to go through his lawyer.

    I've been tied up in meetings all afternoon and evening, so forgive me...but is there evidence that it was suicide for BL? Or was it simply not surviving out there?

    I know everyone wishes they knew more details - but the truth is, even if he were brought back alive, we still would probably not know details, or not feel like we knew all the truth.

    It could be as simple as he had a psychiatric break - it certainly seemed like he was headed that way with the restaurant incident, and Gabby's friends had said he'd had episodes of hearing voices. He could have heard voices in his head that she was evil, and killed her, only later coming out of that state and realizing what he had done. Or it could have been a heated fight. We'll never know, and likely wouldn't even if he were sitting in a jail cell.

    I really don't understand it. I have a couple of clients who were literally clients #2 and #3 when I started my own practice. They are still clients. They are now very big, successful businesses that make cool products that help people. It's the same small management teams from when they were young guys and girls in their garages to over a decade later running big businesses. When I have to break bad news to them or we are unable to solve a problem for them, I genuinely feel bad. I will feel sad like I let down a friend. That's how close you can get to people you work with as a lawyer over time. It's not just transactional or trying to find a loophole - it's trying to do your best to help your client get the best outcome possible.

    The idea that your clients of 20 years lost their son and are at the center of a media storm that you contributed to and you...decide to go on TV repeatedly is just...I really don't understand. It's gross and this is why people hate lawyers. lol

    What an odd comment for that attorney to make. They could certainly have been aiding/supporting an escape, but once aware he was dead or likely/possibly so, no reason any longer not to assist in the search/give information.

    I have an very hard time thinking that someone died by the elements and maybe starvation right beside a parking lot for God's sake. JMO
