Charles Bothuell’s son Charlie has been missing for 11 days. Last night, while Bothuell was being interviewed by Nancy Grace on HLN, his son was suddenly found in the family’s basement. When Grace relayed this news to Bothuell, the look on his face was hard to read. Was it shock? Was it guilt? Was it “shit I was hoping he was gone?” Difficult for me to say which it was since I’m not a body language expert and because people react to stunning news or events in different ways. Take the McDonald’s knife-in-the-back guy for instance, that motherfucker really took that stabbing in stride.
After telling Bothuell the news, Grace immediately went on the offensive. She wanted to know why people have been wasting their time trying to find Charlie if he was in the fucking basement this entire time. She told Bothuell, ”I don’t know why you guys would have reported him missing. All our viewers have been on the lookout for him.”
“I checked my basement,” Bothuell said, while probably doing everything in his power to not call her a cunt. “The FBI checked my basement. The police checked my basement. My wife checked my basement. I’ve been down there several times. We’ve all been checking.”
Well, there you have it, Nancy.
UPDATE: There are lots of theories swirling around out there as to what the hell happened to Charlie and WHO THE SHIT CHECKED THE BASEMENT? According to police, the boy was not in the basement when they checked it. Well, where the hell was he? Is the kid unable to speak? He might be, because apparently the boy still hasn’t seen his father Charles yet.
And then there’s this, a new video of Charles Bothuell being grilled by more reporters, who keep asking the same questions. Suffice it to say, this entire thing is a shitshow.
