Too many things not adding up.

Surely the girls that were waiting for these two gentlemen would have heard about this on the news by now and come forward.
But I guess not.

Why would the hi-jackers kill the four crew-members and leave these two guys alive. Not only alive, but take them along for a few hour ride from the bahamas to where the boat was found 120 miles south of Miami. (they were found only 12 miles from the boat). Does this make sense to anyone?

In any event, how tragic. So sad. RIP.

Been following this story and hoped for the best but knew it didn't sound too good. I say a public hanging is in order

Sounds like a tragic story in the making, especially with chidlren involved.
I found this link on another site- a picture of the 'Joe Cool' , the first boat on site to assist the passengers and crew/USCG this spring during the unfortunate sinking of a 65' Ferretti yacht off the coast of Miami- a good samaritan............

I saw the cousin of the boat owner and his wife on the Today show this am. He said he is using planes searching local islands close to where boat was found , hopping the guys at least dropped them off close enough they could swim for it. Like everyone says the story is pure crap, they need to make the two scumbags talk. Tragic for sure.

eye for a eye, I say take these to Fuk sticks out in the middle of the Stream, and they either talk and get a quick death with a bullet, or they say nothing and swim!!!

or go to jail where the Butt-pirates will treasure their Booty!

For the Family, one cannot imagine the pain they are going thru, maybe there will be a miracle.

What I could see happening is one of them is going to roll on the other one when the Feds start putting real pressure on them.
