    If the car was in RL name, yes it could be reported as stolen. I know it's true but will add IMO.

    Yup, he didn't own the car. They could have started a mental health process.

    Much more to the story of what happened/transpired sith BL leaving for a hike.
    Moo...

    Ultimately l see Brian’s bones as his confession - in any manner that he died. That’s moo of course.

    And l don’t care frankly about that part of the story anymore. It’s anticlimactic and unfortunate perhaps even a senseless ending as it turns out Brian is not some survivable expert or criminal mastermind - moo.

    I do still care about his parents coming clean and understanding that part of this puzzle.

    I am very concerned however with SB’s spin publicly last night.

    In SB’s interview with reporter Kristen Thorne’s he has begun to paint Brian as a distraught and grieving person who ultimately walked into the Reserve never to return, (while his parents stood by helpless).

    Of course we don’t know what Brian was grieving about to his parents…SB declined to comment on that. (I have a
    a good guess though)- moo

    But there is a danger in SB’ spin.

    I think this article explains to better than l ever could:

    “ I worry that his death will somehow soften the impact of Petito’s. I worry that it could engender sympathy for him, or prompt a Romeo and Juliet framing of, “what a tragedy for everyone”

    It’s a great read:

    Brian Laundrie’s death isn’t what we should care about in the Gabby Petito case

    I think that SB and many others <modsnip> are churning up the media frenzy. I think SB and his clients are going to sell their story to the highest bidder and that keeping the protests going (by calling attention to them constantly) and keeping the public angry (by changing facts constantly) are all in hopes of upping the bidding war of publishers and TV shows that is to come. sickening.

    If it is a box of some sort, maybe the gold is the metal latch?

    Stolen car? Taking their Mustang w/o permission?
    Not sure how you can force a 23-year-old adult to stay put but if he didn't own the car perhaps call the police to report he was distraught acting unstable and took their car w/o permission. In Florida, you can involuntarily commit someone for a psyche eval. Baker Act.

    the workers should have called LE and have them escort them…that’s what is done in our area. The L’s also could have called and talked to the company for verification of workers and workers should be wearing ID tags from the business or have them on them.

    if it was to repairs someone’s land line phone…that is needed…I hope that person or persons really don’t need it.

    to edit I read it was a power company employee….hope no one needed electricity to run any medical devices…..what day would have been okay? I bet no day would be. The parents need help bad. They have known for some time what their son did to Gabby and what he was going and did to to himself, that’s hard to deal with but for everyone to be bossing no tip toeing around them is not going to help.

    Hopefully the power company found another way in to the pole. JMOO’s

    I regret we won't see a perp walk now. There is no way to equate the homocide by strangling of Gabby to the death of a coward who stole her vehicle, her credit cards, ran home, cost taxpayers a great deal of OUR money, then psychologically tortured his own family by his reckless actions. I don't need a weather vane to see which way the wind blows. IMO

    At our house, the keys to all vehicles are left in a bowl...no one gives someone the keys, you just take them and go. Or he may have had his own keys to it.

    You're right, the Laundries and Brian have sucked the air out of the room. And it's amazing how the public forgets a beautiful young woman who was strangled to death by the person she loved and then left while he used her vehicle and money to try to get away with the crime. She had protected him Moab and he sought that same protection even after killing her.

    Perhaps they were always emotionally awkward people?
    I mean it doesn't take a genius to know that it wasn't wise to act heartless, tear-down posters. They don't know how to read a room, they seemed angry Gabby was dead. Not sure if that's what they truly felt, it just appeared that way to the media.

    I was wondering if Brian moved around a bit at first in the Preserve. His parents went to look for him right? If he was only a mile off the entrance why didn't they find him that time? Is it possible he didn't die right away but was in the park for awhile and then became deceased by whatever unknown cause at this time?

    And if his son were suicidal? Threatening death by cop? Would CL want to rain that scenario down on their heads? So many possibilities. We just don't know enough to condemn them. If culpability is proven, I will. Till the I remain open and sympathetic. All my opinion, of course.

    I completely forgot about the messages, sorry. But like I said initially, a wild theory.

    Nobody hands over the keys to their only mode of transportation and credit cards and says later!
    Maybe, I'm more naturally curious but I'd grill him, "How will she get home? Will she be ok? Who is she with? Are her parents aware?"

    Or he was hiding from them. Too much stress for him to manage.

    As a local...
    I believe we are all relieved that Brian Laundrie was found dead. No one wants a suspected murderer walking around.
    And we are disappointed that he will not stand trial for Gabbys murder. The Petito family deserved so much better.

    The Laundrie's are persona non grata in the area. And I believe their New York lawyer is attempting to set up law$uits against the media for $lander.

    JMHO...but, I think the Laundrie's (who according to the lawyer, knew that BL was dead on Sept 14th) must have cut a deal with the FBI to give up the body in exchange for not being on the hook for a million dollars.
