Wait... So if Chris Laundrie's camping hot spots lead to finding Brian, will they get the reward $?


Infamousx14

Wait, the campsite finding last night was bs? 😡


Noisy_Toy

Maybe. I think we’re at the “strategic leaks” act.


katelynwebs

So commented on someone's thing a little bit ago and it got me thinking. In THE moab PD video brian was talking about the WWOOF community that he and Gabby where joining in Washington. I couldn't sleep the other night so I was looking into it a little bit ( I live in WA and was curious what it was and how it works and how close to me the might have been coming). I never thought to look to see of they had Farms close to North Port. I looked it up there are 43 active Farms in FL with 3 of them close to North Port. What are the chances he joined one of these communities where you sleep in a tent, eat food with there's families and most of them are pretty far out of cell range?


Booklady39

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to all you guys for helping my days go by at work. I’m constantly lurking during the day from work but never comment (even tho I would love to join in these discussions!!) some of these comments/discussions literally have me laughing at my desk 😂😂


mdk513

Has anyone ever gotten a rash from the saltwater after the beach? Imagine how nasty and rotten BL's skin must be if he is indeed alive and in the reserve.


kneey0h

Pretty sure it’s mostly fresh water.


FucktusAhUm

CNN got one thing right. "Constant updates have left authorities and the public confused about Laundrie's disappearance." Probably most accurate summary of the case so far.


superwhomom19

Especially when the majority of them are false flags


lavenderlavender23

Okay. So. They didn’t really even do a true search today if it was just CL and an officer so…. Where do we go from here


superwhomom19

They probably had him out there to try to identify items they found.


Early-Blackberry8593

Back to square 1


Early-Blackberry8593

I think Brian is in the reserve somewhere. But it’s not that crazy that he could be hiding in plain sight after changing his appearance slightly. I’m super familiar with this case and what he looks like and I could have passed him 30x and never know it. I don’t think he ever left the reserve but.


superwhomom19

Deleted my previous comment because it got placed under the wrong thread (I probably clicked the wrong button) But I think he’s still at the reserve too. I think they have strong evidence that he is there and never left.


Creeperdoodle

I also think he's in the reserve still. I'm not ruling out anything (except bunkers and cuba), but I do think he's in the reserve.


chaotic_rogue

asking this seriously: what’s the point of lying about the campsite? why would they start a rumor like that? i can’t think of a reason that would make sense. to save face? to get CL out of the house? edit: i guess i just don’t understand what the BENEFIT would be. like they could have just said nothing at all and saved the time lmao

Death_Star

this is almost always the reason


Throw_Away_70398547

That info didn't come from law enforcement. CNN reported it as something they had heard from a source "close to the family"


Mynameisinigomontya

I think confusion. Maybe the "FBI liaison" lawyer talked to said something similar but not that and Stevie got confused. He messes up everything, if this tip came from him it's like the 5th time he's screwed up information


superwhomom19

This seems like the most accurate thing that could’ve happened tbh


-germanisette-

They made a mistake. They thought they got some insider tip and obviously wanted to be first to break the story, and then later found out that they were being pranked.


[deleted]

Could be. Could also be a misunderstanding


henrythe400th

Two words: Distraction.


chaotic_rogue

distraction from what you think? genuinely asking

Good night euro fren


slugvegas

Can we get a poll in this sub? I’m interested in the overall consensus if he’s dead or alive. And if he’s alive, where he might be.


BluePoptard

I think he's alive and not in Florida. My logic is why would his parents remain quiet up to this point if he killed himself near their house weeks ago? If they were risking everything, including losing their grandkids and their other kid, why would they for a dead kid


spreadingsunshine106

There was a poll posted further down about an hour ago, and at that time it was about 65% alive, 35% dead


slugvegas

If it was it’s own thread it would get a lot more interaction and focused discussion.


spreadingsunshine106

Oh, I am not disagreeing with you at all, just was stating what the percentages were at that time. I too would like to see this as its own thread.


slugvegas

Interesting that it’s leaning towards alive. Closer than I woulda thought tho.


slugvegas

Mods, can you make it happen? It would make a good top level thread for discussion as well as providing some insight into what this sub thinks.

Now I’m confused. Campsite or no campsite found?

None, false lead given to Chris cuomo


BeeBeeBuckley

And of course he reported it without verifying it first.

No campsite. It was all a lie.

Are there any psychologists in here who can answer how long major shock can last?

littleliongirless

Thanks so much! I have an old undergrad degree full of dust, lol. Was just wondering if there is some kind of known timeline range yet...


Amorette93

We have one who's verified as a psychiatrist. I've been engaging with him in my post history, you could probably tag him. Look for the debate about satellites.


mamawantsallama

Ashley Banfield had a Doctor on last night that discussed a ton of mental health questions like this. I would link if I could....


drunkenkyle

Electrician here. It's time for "ER or Not," where you get to play along and decide whether or not something that happened is worth going to the emergency room. We're with Dr. Troy Madsen, Emergency Room Physician at University of Utah Hospital.


I_am_Nobody_Special

Happy to answer, but what do you mean by major shock?


littleliongirless

As in, the shock of murder. Does that sound too basic? The shock of loss of control; of destroying your entire life...all of that at once...is that enough?


Basic-Entry4117

It depends on the person and if they seek and follow mental health guidance


littleliongirless

Assuming they do not.

I got super excited reading that first sentence.


_-_Chiisai_-_

I swear to God if it turns out that Brian is dead and his family actually doesn't know what happened I'm gonna fuckin lose it.


BubblesForBrains

This is most likely the outcome


kneey0h

This is the likely outcome. Most of this was puffed up by that first LE news conference. He is the one that said that brian was hiding from them truth and that the parents know. And then the Intenet got ahold of it.


AtTheGates

Prepare for pretty much anything. If it turns out that the dad isn't deeply involved in any of this, I expect all of you to be sending gallons of milk and other goodies to his doorstep.


-germanisette-

I would prepare for this to be true.


Mynameisinigomontya

Anyone remember the exact date that video of the van at the scene came out? Was it before Brian left?


holaporfavorgracias

when did miranda baker post her tik tok? i saw that before the van video edit: per her tiktok acct posted on 9/17


Beezle-Mom

The go pro video was posted on Sept 19 [video](https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=hnMbpMj6P0s)


-germanisette-

The dates of both sightings are in the linked visual timeline on top of this thread.


Nie915

The date the video was captured was August 27th Edit: and now I see you asked when it was made public sorry


Cover-Ashamed

September 14th, I think?


_-_Chiisai_-_

The YouTube video was posted September 19th so after he left.


[deleted]

It was after Brian left. The YouTubers posted the video on Sept. 19th. https://youtu.be/PBp3aNAGuFM


Mynameisinigomontya

Thank you


Beezle-Mom

We don’t know when Brian left. Allegedly it’s now the 13th, but since no one has positively seen him since the camping trip with his parents, it could be days before that.


Mynameisinigomontya

THe neighbor with the colored hair saw him on the 10th she said


hididathing

Is she the one who said there was no camping trip or that she didn't recall one, then everyone started to doubt the other neighbors?


Mynameisinigomontya

I don't think so, link?


Zombieflesh

It was the 19th


jgata20

The more I think about it. BL was home for days before anything happened. I’m sure they planned out at least a decent 2 week to a month plan. Probably thinking things would die down, not turn viral. He really might be in the Appalachian area. Lived in east TN and honestly if anyone doesn’t know what’s viral it’s mountain people. I do believe he will be found one day. I really don’t think he is dead. I know people think that seems like the logical situation, but him being home for days and his parents being so sus just makes that so hard to believe.


Nie915

I'm from east TN , while I agree they aren't up on viral trends here they're 100% up on gossip lol


-germanisette-

The parents have done nothing “sus”.


jgata20

How can you believe that? Completely ignoring the petito family, lawyering up immediately, cutting off contract with their daughter? These are not the actions of innocent people


-germanisette-

You have no idea what lies Brian told them.


jgata20

Then why would they not say “this is what he told us” it gives them an excuse and Brian a story. They either didn’t believe what ever lie he told them and chose to stay quiet anyway, or they know


Plinythemelder

Honestly there's no reason to think he even told his parents given what we know. He bailed shortly after her parents reported her missing, he could have bailed because his parents would start figuring it out. Who know. We literally don't have enough info right now to make any determinations other than it seems the FBI (who have more than us), think he's at the reserve


jgata20

Yeah 100% I’m interested to know, if we ever do, what the fbi knows about the reserve. I suppose it’s possible he told his parents something else about why she wasn’t with him, but it feels like they would have just said that from the get go, rather than make themselves look super crazy.


Mynameisinigomontya

How would he get there though ?


cella80

Maybe got on a train old school hobo style 🤷🏼


slugvegas

Well we know he had no problem with hitchhiking. And remember, he wasn’t a named suspect for a while so he was able to live freely.


nydelite

Well, when he hitchhiked that was before it was known that Gabby even disappeared.


Mynameisinigomontya

At first that's what I thought, goes to the reserve walks out and hitchhiked but I think with how wide spread the case is they'd report picking him up right?


slugvegas

I’m not so sure. Honestly most of my coworkers (and I doubt my parents) know about it. Of those that do, I’m sure even less know what he looks like. Depends on if someone like a long haul trucker is following.


jgata20

I mean, like I said, he had days with his parents who were at least probably somewhat cool headed. Which makes their problem solving skills much better than I’m sure a paranoid BL had. A friend, a different car, mega bus.. who knows


bibi19997

I really think he killed himself. He came home, realized what he did and decided to go somewhere and kill himself. Maybe a place him and Gabby loved.


BubblesForBrains

I do too. I don’t think it was planned. He’s just an angry abusive guy. Once the reality started to hit him , he feared the outcome.


iMaryJane1

I tend to think this as well. The day that is now believed that he left for the hike is also the day his lawyer said he last spoke to him. Maybe his lawyer was going over the case / possible outcomes and he got scared and left.


Ancient_Antares

I just think that if he grew remorseful, and especially if he went to someplace he and Gabby loved, to kill himself because he's come down off the angry i'm not at fault trip he had been on since WY, and what led him to kill Gabby in the first place, he'd leave a public note confessing his actions, and saying sorry. Or even something along the lines of "I wasn't my fault, I got angry. I loved her. I can't live without her" type of stuff. Either with his parents, or attorney, or something. And he didn't do any of that. I don't think he really planned his move here. It's certainly possible he's dead, sure. But I think he's just winging this.


SuccessPristine2572

Same. I think he made up his mind on the 32 hour drive home. Had plenty time to think about it. If it looked like he was gonna get away with it he would carry on and pretend like he didn’t know the first thing about it. If it looked like he was gonna get the jewelry he would go somewhere and off himself. He did a poor job covering his trail and chose the latter.


Shellasaurex

The fact there are pictures of him smiling on his camping trip make me believe he hasn’t come to his senses.


cella80

A close friend of mine killed his girlfriend another close friend of mine. He was never charged it was ruled an accident. He never showed one bit of remorse, he still lives his happy life it's very unnerving to say the least.


chaotic_rogue

i don’t think he would be nearly as poetic as this honestly


Mynameisinigomontya

Same. Like Alexis starkeys husband as soon as he felt the cops closing in


WonderfulMode709

Haven’t gotten to check in all day - have I missed anything worth mentioning?


cella80

JB joined the thread earlier. BL dad went to the reserve to help for about an hour and a half. After that BE followed CL truck back to the house. BE tried to ask questions CL didn't answer. Then we found out that the CNN post about the fresh campsite was bogus.🤷🏼


EyezWyde

You haven’t missed much. FBI took shitbirds dad to the reserve. I thought maybe there would be some news today but same shit, different toilet.


WonderfulMode709

Why am I getting downvoted for this question?


Easywintergardening

People here are the worst


withoutthek

I guess the main things are 1) the campsite CNN reported on did not actually exist and 2) Brians dad did go down to the (p)reserve for a couple hours with LE


raspoontin

You could’ve not checked in for the last 3 weeks and the answer would still be, there is nothing worth mentioning.


Beezle-Mom

This. Sigh.


Lanky-Masterpiece

This is accurate. There are new developments ever day, and almost none of them amount to progress in finding him


danandrewk

I just want to say how crazy it is that BL still hasn't been found. I'm genuinely stunned. He can't leave the country, he can't really go out in public and he couldn't live in the wilderness for this long (in my opinion). I'm completely stumped. I have no ideas and I'm losing hope.


Early-Blackberry8593

Have you ever heard of Bucky? He alluded police for 120 days after killing police so…


[deleted]

You have experience trying to sneak into or out of the US? Canada doesnt exactly have protected borders and I dont know if you have heard, but it's pretty damn easy to get into the US from mexico.

The_Amazing_Shaggy

> i dont think were giving brian nearly enough credit for how smart or capable he is. I agree. The amount of people that thinks sitting under a tree with a box of MREs and filter straws in the middle of a 25,000 acre wetland requires uber elite survivalist and evasion training is astounding to me. It doesn't take a lot of outdoor knowledge for someone living in the heart of hurricane ground zero to consider taking the hurricane food and water rations on an extended camping trip where searchers would be hindered by thick brush. He's not thriving comfortably but he could easily be surviving miserably.


readerleader007

100% agree!


Besthookerintown

He can’t leave the country. - he can He can’t go out in public. - he can in a disguise and a mask He could’t live in the wilderness this long. He can. You can too, especially in Florida. You just need water filters and rations or know what you can eat from the wild.


gingerguitarx92x

Yep. A mask and a hat, or even glasses for good measure and with winter coming he can wear gloves to hide his identifying hand tattoos and nobody would be any wiser


[deleted]

well, and a simple cover to avoid being saturated, but in Florida I dont know if you would get hypothermia overnight while being soaked. At this time of the year.


Mynameisinigomontya

Not in the Florida swamp you can't without shelter and food. He can't leave the country, he has no id he'd have to walk to Mexico or Canada or steal a boat, which again he'd have to walk to and the boat would be reported stolen


[deleted]

How’s he getting out of the country without someone who wants that bounty money?


Besthookerintown

Walking into Mexico is as easy as walking into a grocery store. You still need to get to the border. With a massive head start and money anything is possible.


Vast-Sea5478

He had a headstart of at least 4 days.


IPreferDiamonds

He could easily go out in public. He is an ordinary looking guy. He actually could be hiding in plain site.


Smithers416

I’m also stunned , when was the last time something this bizarre happened


Mynameisinigomontya

Vallow Daybell case was pretty damn bizarre. The videos from the questioning Lori and her brother Alex after he killed Charles for her came out and I just realized we may never get to see videos like this of Brian


killin_time_here

Have they released any more information regarding the autopsy results? I know they were able to declare it homicide but they haven’t elaborated at all right?


The_Amazing_Shaggy

Nope, nothing more than the manner of death (homicide).


[deleted]

They have not and more than likely will not. It’s important to keep those results quiet until a trial is held.


killin_time_here

Oh that’s a good point. If it was public knowledge exactly how she was killed than they wouldn’t be able incriminate anyone on the basis of knowing those details…okay thanks!


[deleted]

Yes exactly


gumboblood7

My guess is that they’re waiting to release those details until they interrogate BL.


Quiet_Government_741

Has anyone considered the reason the FBI has asked BLs father to help assist them with their search is to have him implicate himself?


prairiemountainzen

That was my thought too. I was wondering if they were hoping he would open up a bit (or *slip up* a bit) if he was separated from his wife.
