    Yes! Finding a body in Florida is actually hard compared to the northeast where I originally from!

    The OP referred to the pending case not being closed. That's what my post was responding to. The only open case is the fraud case and there will never be a criminal case imvso.

    So far as I know, they didn't live at Cassie's current house. It's my understanding that Cassie and her family moved to their current house later. So a landline number likely would have changed.

    I admit, it's a bit unclear where GP & BL lived. Was it the parents' house,? A condo the parents paid for? Cassie's? We don't know. But we have never been told by anyone they tried to call Cassie "hundreds" of times. And why would they? Why would BL's older sister know where GP or BL was?

    My interpretation is that LE found the backpack during the time that the Laundries were there searching. Laundries found other articles. Afterwards LE scoured the immediate surroundings and found the remains.

    There's still the matter of Fort De Soto, getting a clean phone, and possibly aiding in preparation to flee. We just don't know yet. Though, I will say that if forensics comes back and state yes - these remains have been here for 6 weeks, then I think this reduces the parents exposure significantly. JMO IMO

    Edit: And, if they can determine COD as suicide as opposed to accidental (elements/environment/wildlife). MOO

    Thanks for the reply. I understand but still have a different POV. I have always seen them as kind of son-obsessed parents. My mom was like that -- a son-worshiper. BL was their only son and the baby by 9 years. It's old-fashioned but some folks think that way today. I believe the protests and the media attention were horrible for them, but nothing compared to the possible death of their child. In fact, it doesn't seem like they've acted out of "self-interest" at any time, always Brian's interest.

    CL found the white bag (called a dry bag?) and LE found the backpack and remains nearby.

    Lots of parents take the view that they should always believe their kid. "Don't answer her mom's phone - she's using it to try and call me and change my mind again - I tried to break up with her, but I'm helpless and couldn't do it. I need to go zero contact! HALP!::"

    If he died by suicide, then I seriously don't believe he did it because he felt remorse over Gabby's death. Much more likely that he had come to believe that he would get caught and did not want to have to deal with spending the rest of his life in jail.

    Other than dumb luck and an educated guess, the only scenario that could make sense is they found him out there alive one of the times they went to look in mid September and tried to convince him unsuccessfully to come home. Maybe they even left the dry bag w supplies when they couldn't find him upon a second return. That seems unlikely but could explain the very specific area ChL honed in on. The urgency from the Laundries with searching that area in recent weeks was an interesting change to note but perhaps that is not the case outside of what the public could see behind the scenes.. or likely was a strategic move by SB to make sure they couldn't be charged with obstruction or aiding, etc. We'll get more answers in the coming weeks and months but I'm sure there will always be lingering questions.

    If BL managed to get into the area where his remains were found on the 13th and killed himself then, his parents, in their 4hour hunt for him the next day would have been able to get in there too. Prior to flooding and receding. Also, if he killed himself on the 13th, all he knew was that Gabby had been reported to be missing. Nothing else. He wasn't a fugitive at that time. jmo Still, he killed himself, or was killed by one hungry or frightened animal. JMO But the parents left the Mustang overnight.

    BL has not been formally named by the FBI as the person who killed GP. Until this happens, it is my understanding that the case remains open. @Alethea Legally what are the next steps?

    I agree. I think he only cared about himself.

    I always meant to "get around to" that (the Wire). It received such excellent reviews.
