However, shortly supervenient footage seemed to prove the car had been there on that Wednesday when it was supposedly in the parking lot outside the Carlton Reserve, leading many pursuit the specimen to doubt their story altogether.
Still, there was little else to go on, and without Gabby’s soul was found and her manner of death unswayable to be homicide, a police search was initiated in the swampland for Brian — a search that forfeit taxpayers well north of $1.2 million if experts are to be believed.
After all that, it appears the Laundries are now rethinking their story.

Yeah, sounds a lot like they were pushed into this new story by the evidence, just as they were with the confession of the camping trip they took with Brian.
Man, they just never stop stuff suspicious, do they??
Meanwhile the family has been willful they believe he is still in Florida — while tons of witnesses have come forward ultimatum to have seen him in North Carolina. Hmm.
