North Port, Fla. – Former Washington, DC, homicide detective Ted Williams joined “Your World” on Wednesday to discuss Brian Laundry’s estate and human remains Which were found in Mayakahatchi Creek Environmental Park, Florida.
Williams said he did not believe the unidentified remains found were likely to remain intact.
They said, “We … know they brought in today … cadaver dogs. This leads me to believe that the body may not be completely intact, and they were probably using cadaver dogs to find [additional] … body part[s]”
Authorities probably did not find the body at first because water had covered the area, and had receded recently. “The answer may very well be that the area you know at the time was underwater,” Williams said.
Williams said he expected to hear a preliminary announcement from officials within 24 hours.
The former detective raised the possibility that it could have been a suicide if the body was from the laundry.
“The question is – if that’s the body – how did he die? And it’s more likely that if it’s Brian Laundry, I have to believe he died, probably as a result of a gunshot wound… That maybe he took some drug, you know, that kind of passed out. But the most likely source would probably be that he’d been through a gunshot, and I’m sure they’re going to see that they were, in fact, a Can’t find weapons or not in that whole area right now.”
