Why don’t we have access to this place? What’s going on behind the shutters? Does anyone know something?”

Another confusing element: the profile of Emil’s dad. During the search, many volunteers collected clues along with the police and Emil’s family. Many question the attitude of Emil’s father during this excavation. “He was well dressed which surprised us. He wore a turtleneck, and dress pants. He was very bossy and would raise his voice to reprimand people he thought didn’t have the right attitude. This surprised everyone a bit.”
