Thanks for the behind the scenes report. It's great to see how 360 is put together throughout the day. Hopefully we will be getting many more of these as I find this really interesting.

Thanks for the behind the scenes. I'm looking forward to seeing Randi's interview. This is such a sad case and I'm sure it was frustrating for the family when Maria was alive and being harassed and then when she disappeared and the military didn't react as quickly as they wanted. Thanks for following up on this story.

Anderson, I love your show and appreciate your style of reporting.
I live in Jacksonville, NC and I am curious as to why no other photographs of Cpl. Laurean have been released. There is a Myspace profile picture of Laurean that has surfaced online that barely resembles the photograph of Laurean in his cammies. Wouldn't it be prudent in the search for Laurean to provide updated pictures to the public?

This is wonderful, its interesting to see how the cnn team and the 360 crew goes behind the scenes to get the story. I would love to become a reporter one day and its great to see how much hard work actually goes in to getting the full story before it is aired.

Thank you

Obviously, the individuals discussing this report do not understand that a military base is a federal responsibility and not a local one. Would local counties, such as Onslow, want to take over law enforcement for 140,000 military personnel? Can you imagine the tax burden on the local community? Sherriff Ed Brown understands this and has expressed this in televised interviews. As a veteran, the military is a great deal tougher than local law enforcement because the military is all about discipline. Let’s wait until the entire story is told before we start attacking……

I love the work the whole team of 360 does. Pure, organic news. :)

Something that has given me cause to ponder in the Maria Lauterbach case is the lawyers. The three Jacksonville, NC lawyers-Mark Raynor, Paul Castle and Ed Bailey representing Mr. Laurean purportedly refused to let their client speak to the police.

When did lawyers obtain this right? Isn't that called obstruction of justice? One more puzzling legal aspect is the suspect has already been assigned a public defender by the Office of Indigent Defense Services (North Carolina state agency) without the defendant even requesting one.

Thank you for all the fine work you and your team do.

I would like to know why this Marine has done something like this. My husband was also a Marine and we never seen anything like this until our Daughter was Bruttally Murdered in Cold Blood on FT. Lewis, WA in July of 2005. I have something to say about this? My daughter was a Military spouse that was treated like a Criminal in this case. Her family never had their say in the Military Trial. The Military always wants to hide something and always wants you to say what they want.Now do not get me wrong. This was not the wrong doing of the Marine Corp. This person took it upon himself to take another life. My heart goes out to that Marine and her unborn Child's Family. I am so sorry you have to go through something like this. Our family has had to grieve for the past 3 years. Life will never be the same again.As far as the Military families, you do not know what it is like to go through something like this and do not wish this on any parent. I hope that they catch this guy and the Local authorities handle this and not the Military. This happened off base and should be treated like any other Murder. If the Military handles this, they will more and likely give him Life in Prison. Someone like this deserves the same way he killed that Lady and her unborn child. To our family, their is nothing that can ever replace a child so dear to your heart.

A grieving Family and Mother.
