    Nancy, certainly more questions than answers. We heard in the week that the FBI had discovered Brian Laundrie's remains at the Environmental Creek Park. Not far from the Laundrie's North Port home here. An autopsy was completed on that body -- results came back inconclusive. Remains are being sent to a forensic anthropologist who will sift through the remains and figure out any clues to try to determine cause of death, here at Laundrie's home in North Port, it has been quiet today. This morning we got a first look at the Laundrie parents leaving the home together, they were in a hurry, jumped into a red pickup truck and left. They sped off.
