“It’s a hoax. Sign is not there.” The Laundries are not selling their North Port home, family attorney Steve Bertolino told me. This comes after a report surfaced showing a For Sale sign on their front lawn. Was it possibly Photoshopped?

I’m note sure on the depth; especially when it flooded. If I remember correctly, I think it was reported BL’s parents indicated this was a place BL enjoyed and had been to multiple times. I don’t remember the source and could be wrong. MOO. I would think someone intent on ending their life wouldn’t think about what’s going to happen to their body afterwards. I do think they’d want to be somewhere that brought them pleasant memories and comfort as they ended their life. JMO/MOO
I appreciate your views, and I’ve read that some suicides do care about providing some solace for the ones they left behind with written notes, preferred funeral arrangements,
and even their last bequeaths to loved ones and friends.
Many will call 911 to report a death and then kill themselves so that their body is found quickly and preserved for funeral services. Some go to a hotel, knowing that room service would find them the next day.
Many will commit the act in a location that would not forever ruin the memories of those they’re leaving behind and spare them from having to relive the sight every time they pass by. But some intentionally commit the act to do just the opposite by causing shocking horror in a familiar place, such as at home, so that the ugly memory is a constant reminder. Regarding BL, he IMO, didn’t die in peace and comfort, he died a frightened and lost man, IMO. And I think he chose that particular location because he (or some one else) didn’t want him to be found or knew that the environment there would certainly leave little left to be found, including any evidence. Now every time the L family drives by the Preserve, they’ll only have memories
of what took place there. IMO

Do sales by owner get listed on Zillow?
I wouldn’t think so, in fact some realtors hold a bit of a grudge when a private seller comes to them later for their services after they couldn’t sell it themselves. IMO

Here is one research answer. The link has added links one can read.

Weapon location following suicidal gunshot wounds - PubMed

574 suicide by a gun, revolver/handgun, but not a long gun the following was determined…

76 cases the gun location could not be decided.
498 cases left

24%-26.7% of the time the gun stayed in hand
69% gun was near or on the body
30 cm or 11.8 inches gun near body not in hand
7% of the time the gun was found less the 30cm or 11.8 inches from body

IMO….I don’t think the gun will ever be found. I don’t think an alligator ate it either. I do think the gun was near the body at one point but not in the hand when the body was found. I do hope authorities find some answers.
This may be a silly question, but do metal detectors work under water?

Lets think realistically, your daughter stops answering her phone , your future son-in-law doesn't answer. Your potential inlaws don't answer. You find out your daughters van is with the potential SIL and potential In Laws without your daughter in sight! What would you do? Pussy foot around or hammer on a door? I know what I would do!

Yes. Absolutely Amazing @jjonez !
Many thanks.
I wanted to ask, in all of your research, did you come across any reports debunking the photo of “BL” taken on 9/17/21?
The one taken by a curious neighbor and his grandmother, a few blocks from the Laundrie home, it’s of BL or double, strolling with earbuds in and a “Hangover” tee-shirt on. TIA

Thanks, and you are welcome.:)

I know the sighting to which you refer. In my strange, compartmentalized mind the BL sightings after arrival in north port are a separate category, lol.
Tho I remain unconvinced, I have looked into that sighting. Iirc, it has never been officially confirmed nor officially debunked. I posted about it before, I’ll see if I can find it…

all moo.

Thanks. Last I searched LE had not debunked it, and no one came forward to claim ownership, so to speak. I read a rather in-depth account of the event by the young man who took the photo. It may have been on his IG page. If I find it, I’ll post it.

here’s one article.

That is what makes it curious to me.

I don’t believe that I have seen the in depth account to which you refer. If you come across it, I would love to see it.

And I will check out this article, I know I haven’t seen that either. Great sleuthing, thanks!

I sold my house on Zillow in 2017 in 4 days. Had several realtors immediately reach out to see if they could show my home to their client, and of course I said yes! It’s good to collaborate with realtors because they have all the proper paperwork (and buyers!), and you only pay half the commission, but it’s time consuming and a lot of work... I could have saved even more if a buyer came to me directly, but that’s not what happened in my case. All six potential buyers brought their realtor, and I got an excellent offer right away. This would be a great cost saving strategy for the Laundries, and they own rental property so would likely be more familiar with real estate processes than most people. IMO

I don't know if Eminetra is an approved source here or not but they're not an actual news site (no reporters). They come up quite frequently in my Google Alerts (along with a couple of other Scrape and auto-post sites ) and I've gotten so I just delete them.

They seem to be quoting a New York Post article. The photo was widely circulated at that time, especially when the neighbor gave the interview on video of BL crossing the yard. I’ll try to unearth that video. I’m sure others saw it. She was sitting on lawn chair on her front patio area.

Here are other “reputable?” Links:
