I thought that the girl was the only one missing, the child was in someone else's custody from what I recall? Am I wrong?

I can't believe the media never took LE to task about how he was right in front of them.


It's not about what you know, it's about what you can prove, and they already had one shot at him in front of a grand jury and they failed.

Not really sure what they are going to show, but I've had lunch with the producer, yes. They have literally interviewed just about everyone involved with the case except for my FIL and SIL who just wish to remain anon (not sure how anon they will be after tonight)


Does it make you nervous?

The only thing I never really understood about the entire thing is how they never searched for sex offenders with white Z71 trucks. That would have been the very first thing I would have done and even mentioned it to my wife the day the truck picture was put out there.

Not saying they had to take him in for questioning, but at least have him on their radar.

At this point, I don't really care anymore about remaining anon, I just don't want my family to be portrayed as weird for unknowingly dating a killer. I really don't know what to expect. The producer said he will do his absolute best to make sure that doesn't happen, but it could have been reporter talk.

Apparently there is going to be some pretty emotional stuff put on this story that involves our side of things.

Look man there is no way yall could have known the guy was a loon. Now if your sil knew he was a loon and still messed with the guy, then she's kinda suspect. But in most cases, those loons put on a good show and fool everyone. And I think anyone who knows you guys and know what yall did for the case and the Shunik family, know what yall did.

I would've thought that would be in LE101

Also, scars? Check. #1 suspect in another murder? Check

Never will understand how they missed so many clues.

We'll know more tonight about the actual investigation. All of the stuff release about the case has been timeline events, never how the pieces were put together. And from what I can gather, they had him in their list of POI, but had nothing to go on until the tip came in. Then all that cray shite he did between the murder and his arrest came to light and made it look like it was oh so obvious and the po po's should have seen the smoke from a mile away.

I never heard this. I thought they said they had no one on their radar until the tip came in.

I have a friend within the detectives who was working the case, the same one I called about Brandon. After talking with him after it was all said and done, Brandon was nowhere near their radar before the tip came in. It actually took 2 weeks to even get hot on Brandon because they were stone cold onto someone else. During those 2 weeks I was calling every day reporting more and more stuff we found out. It wasn't until the car dealership tip that they were like holy shite

I can't blame them though, the other guy seemed 100% so they had no reason to look into Brandon until that lead spoiled

I would have LOVED to be in the room with them when they had to tell the chief.."uh sir, we just got another tip on Brandon Lavergne...this time from a dealership saying he's trading in a white Z71"

it wasn't the media or LE that made this a big deal. Her family and friends made it a big deal and forced it.

I know you said your wife said you were crazy at first... what did she say when it all came out?

Good job by the way! So many people are oblivious to their surroundings or just wouldn't report anything
