Be careful out there guys. I've prospected in that area before and I swear I could smell something unpleasant in the water in the creeks there like gas. Authorities are still unsure what killed the family, no obvious signs of death/wounds and best theory so far is either mineshaft gasses from the old mines in the area or algae bloom in the creeks.

Any proof that there have been "NO KNOWN deaths attributed to anything else but covid for 18 months"? TNET allows for COVID misinformation & politics??? A moderator even replied to the thread without any issue at all.... It seems like they allow it, as long as it's bashing the left... as others in the past, I've had enough - I'm leaving this site....it's been useless for years anyway..

Perhaps your school of hard rocks just wasnt hard enough :laughing7:

That wasn?t random. It was forecasted weather blowing up from Mexican coast.
What's your point? ... sorry bruh, but thunderstorms in my area are always a "random occurrence" I have 2 weather apps on my phone and regularly monitor doppler radar. It's not common here . So bye Felicia

Brian Laundrie (if found alive) should be charged with Reckless Endangerment for either forcing or letting Gabby get out of his vehicle out there where they were. If he would have handled their differences better and she stayed in his car she would be alive today.

boy has this thread gone south...... lightning is the only thing that can explain this incident. it is very likely the cause of this tragedy. Thunderstorms are very common all along the foothills of California and happen without notice or prediction. Ive had my share of close calls and it is a terrible feeling being caught in a lightning storm. please no likes, this is a terrible tragedy and theres nothing to like about it

Lol. Sad but true!

I'm kinda leaning towards murder/suicide now as well.. he poisned everyone. I can't think of anything else that could have done it.

Maybe it was the new "quicky" variant of Covid" haha

i thought that too..but, why the dog?

The water must have receded.
Right?! These investigators are really good these days. SMH.. How do 3 people (2 experienced hikers..) and a dog all die of heat exhaustion in the same exact spot? Just makes no sense that they would all drop at the same exact time.

Brian Laundrie: FBI is useless AF these days... he was literally less then 5 miles from the house the whole time. found right next to the trail... give me a break.

I don’t believe that for 1 second. 1 person maybe but not 3 people and a dog. How stupid do they think we are. I’d believe aliens before I believe that crap.
There are natural phenomena that cannot be explained by current human knowledge. Unlikely, but not impossible. I could also possibly see a dog faithfully guarding dead owners. Dogs can actually rarely be that dedicated and faithful.
However, the chance of one of them wandering off deliriously chasing a hallucination in fits of thirst is more likely. I’d be curious of exactly how far apart the bodies were found. Perhaps they were all found within 400 yards and it was reported by the news media erroneously. That’s more likely…right?

Happens all the time. I've hiked the grand canyon now 7 times. South Rim to Phantom ranch and back. Approximately 20 miles. And even with multiple hikers always on the trail and park rangers never more then an hour or two away, every year several die of heat exhaustion.

So if you think it's a conspiracy, you're looking for one.
