My family was in town and I hung out with them. I got some sun. Look at me, I'm kinda tan. I kind of look orange, but I'm here now. (chuckles) The last Monday I uploaded, we talked about the Ken and Barbie killers, remember? (lips blowing) That was really stupid. Them, they're really stupid. Awful story. A big, thank you to all of those, who let me know

what

an idiot I am, because I pronounced Scarborough. I was pronouncing Scarborough. Scarborough, yeah, you can always count on me to mispronounce everything. That's one thing I'm consistent at. You know, I do listen to how to pronounce things beforehand. (snickers) I don't know

what

. Okay, so thanks, whoops. So if there's anything you know about me, it's that I don't like

unsolved

really don't. You see, I like to go to sleep at night. Okay. I like to lay there, and be like *sleep noise*, and go to bed. But with

unsolved

stories, I lay there and I go, "Eh, oh

what

could've

happened

?" And I start tryin' to solve the

mystery

, as if I'm gonna crack the case. I don't know. So I just like to avoid them, because you know, I like to sleep. But today's is

unsolved

, okay. And it's real suspish. I think it's a coverup, but that's just my personal opinion. I don't know anything. And I would like to hear your input. If you ever curious as to

what

I'm using, I'll list it down in the description box. But other than that, let's jump into today's

unsolved

weird, weird story. Today's story. It takes place in Lacombe, Louisiana. This place, it's a small town, and it's about 50 miles North of New Orleans. Lacombe, Louisiana is where

Nanette

and Steve

Krentel

lived for about 17 years.

Nanette

and Steve, they met in 1994. See Steve, he ran two different businesses. One was like a scuba diving shop. And then another one was a picture frame store. And

Nanette

had gone into, I think it was the picture frame store, or could have been the diving shop. She went in there and she applied for a job. And that's how they met. Now, Steve really liked

Nanette

, and he hired her. Now at this time, Steve was actually married, and he kept the relationship with the

Nanette

strictly business, as it should be,...
up in flames an unsolved mystery   what happened to nanette krentel mystery makeup bailey s
you know. But over time, their friendship evolved, and the two became very close. Steve ended up "leaving" his wife, and started dating

Nanette

. I use air quotes, because I don't think he actually, like actually left her. Like, they were still technically married. And

Nanette

, she was aware that he was still married, but Steve told her that the marriage was rocky, and it was ending anyways. So they were dating. But eventually the marriage, Steve's marriage, it did end. And not long after that, Steve and

Nanette

got married. So Steve and

Nanette

, their marriage would end up lasting over 22 years. So, they're together for a long time. I think it's safe to say that. Steve had a son with his previous wife, and his name was Justin, who was two years old when Steve and

Nanette

got married. They shared custody of Justin with Steve's ex-wife. And it was said that

Nanette

tried her best to be a good step-mom, and just a good co-parent. In 1997, Steve ended up closing down the stores that he had owned and started working for the local fire department. So he started at the bottom, and really worked his way all the way to the top, and ended up becoming the fire chief. And at this time

Nanette

was working at a local preschool, and she loved her job there. She was there for like 14 years, I wanna say. Now their finances were in a good position. The two of them decided that they were gonna build their own home. And this was in the year 2000. I don't even...
up in flames an unsolved mystery   what happened to nanette krentel mystery makeup bailey s
know

what

, like step one is when it comes to building your own home, but they did it. They built their own home, (chuckles) and it was in the middle of nowhere. It's surrounded by a ton of trees. It was on a hundred acres of land. When you're looking at a picture of it, looks really scary, 'cause it's just kind of like literally in the middle of nowhere. But there's only one pathway in to the house, and one way out, you know. There was a gate at the entrance to their home, so it just felt really safe. Steve's cousin, he lived like not too far from theirs. You couldn't see his house from their home, like through the thick trees, but he was pretty close by. It felt very secluded. And it was really just away from everything. Steve and

Nanette

, they just loved their home, and they planned on being there forever. On July 14th, 2017, now it was just a normal morning. That's how it always starts, right? Just a normal a** morning.

Nanette

woke up. She packed Steve his lunch, 'cause he was going to work. You know, so she packs his lunch. She walked him outside, they said their goodbyes, and then

Nanette

watched Steve get into his truck, and drive away, to go to work. His shift started around 8:00 AM, and there were many, well, all of his coworkers said, that Steve did indeed show up at 8:00 AM. So Steve's at work

what

evs. Around 2:30 PM, Steve gets a phone call from his cousin, the cousin that lives close to his house, remember? Okay, yeah, so...
he gets a phone call, and tells him that his house was on fire. He could see the

flames

coming up from the trees. His house was on fire. So Steve is thinking, like this has to be a joke. And he keeps asking his cousin like, are you joking? No, you can't be serious right? And his cousin's like, "No, your house is on fire. You need to get over here." It was not a joke. Steve and the fire department, they headed out to his home. And Steve said during the drive, he had called

Nanette

's cell phone, and the house phone over, and over again. But it was just going straight to voicemail. Steve said, when he was getting close to the home, he could see that there was a ton of smoke rising up. Like it seemed to be a huge fire. He was hoping that it was just the trees around the house on fire. And that's why it was looking so big, which sounds mean, but like that's,

what

ever. But it was actually the house that was on fire. (chuckles) Okay, why am I dumb? But when they pulled up, that's when Steve sees that his whole house was engulfed in

flames

. I mean swallowed by

flames

. Steve said that he was looking around, and just hoping that

Nanette

was not in the home. But then that's when he looked over, like at the garage area, and saw that the cars were there, in the garage, and that they were on fire. So he knew that she's probably home. Maybe she's inside, because you could not leave, or go anywhere without the cars. The firefighters, they find...

Nanette

's body in the master bathroom, on the floor. Her body was badly burned, and they found her small dog right next to her. Poor

Nanette

, she was only 49 years old. She didn't make it. She was dead. So police and firefighters, they start to assess the scene, while Steve has to make that awful phone call to tell

Nanette

's family like

what

had

happened

. So

Nanette

's father and sister were obviously devastated. Steve told

Nanette

's father, that he thought maybe

Nanette

had run into the burning house to try and like gather the pets to get them out, and maybe was overcome with smoke. And then she just, burned.

Nanette

's sister and friends, they just were not fully convinced that this is

what

happened

. Like how could she not get out of a house fire? I mean, she was married to a fire chief, and it was midday. Like it just, it just fully wasn't making sense. If anything, she would know

what

to do, if there were a fire, so, hmm. Now normally, a scene would be closed off until a thorough search was done, but they ended up releasing the property back to Steve, and the family just two days after the fire.

Nanette

's family, and Steve, they like walked the property. They were looking for anything they could save, like photos or belongings, just anything, you know? And then they also helped like clean up the debris off of the property. The house was completely gone. Like no walls were left, no roof, it was all gone. So this fire was intense. It had to be...
intense, for it to like just take everything. On July 21st, 2017, that's when Steve holds the Memorial service for

Nanette

. And the service was held at the preschool that she worked for, because she had worked there for, again, like 14 years. So it was just a really big part of her life. And it seemed to be the best place to celebrate her life, you know? And around the same time of

Nanette

's Memorial was taking place, the coroner comes out and gives a statement, as to like

what

happened

to

Nanette

. Because mind you, I'm sorry, but like this was all over the news, house fire. It was just like labeled as a house fire. A woman dies in house fire. House fire, house fire, house fire, house fire. So everyone was thinking that she just died in a house fire. So the coroner comes out to make a statement. And he says that

Nanette

's cause of death was not caused by a fire. Nay nay. Oh, nay nay, nay nay. The autopsy revealed that

Nanette

died, of a single gunshot wound to her head. Now, ain't that something? So again,

Nanette

's service is going on, and then people's phones start pinging and ringing. 'Cause everyone's getting word, and people are trying to figure out like, "Oh my god, have you heard?" Blah, blah, blah. And everyone's just shocked. But some people were like, "See, I knew she didn't die of a house fire. This is something more, this may have been a homicide." So five days after the fire, police returned back to...
the scene, and then they start their formal investigation. Mind you in those five days, Steve and the family had cleaned up a lot of the debris. It did not look the same, as it did the day of the fire. So if there was evidence in the debris, a lot of it was cleaned up, which was like, just a bummer. So during the investigation, they were able to uncover several guns at the home, but many of them were heavily damaged from the fire. So between Steve and

Nanette

they had about 30 guns. Yeah, that's a lot. When Steve was questioned like, "Hey, you got a lotta guns, you know, like why do you guys have so many guns?" Steve said that he and

Nanette

, they collected them, and we're both experienced shooters. Just seems like a lot. During their search, they were able to find six guns in the debris. Now the bullet that was found in

Nanette

's head, did not match any of the guns that was found in the house. But it was, not necessarily because they weren't the correct gun. It was because they were so badly burned, that they couldn't make a match. So again,

Nanette

's body was found in the master bathroom on the floor. And there was a gun that was found, like fairly close to where her body was found. So with this information, the sheriff was leaning towards

Nanette

's death, being a suicide. Which I mean, isn't not possible, but it doesn't, like doesn't make sense. Okay, so it was kind of like ruled as a suicide for a minute. Like the sheriff...
really wanted it to be a suicide, but many, I mean, many believed, there's no way. There's no way that

Nanette

would commit suicide. Like try again, no. The coroner ended up looking for any signs of smoke or soot in her lungs and her throat. And this would determine if she was alive when the fire first started. Now that could give us some clues. Because if you're already dead, how can you start a fire? You know? I mean, I know some of you are thinking, like, "Oh, a candle or something." There's no way a candle could like burn down your whole house like that, right. I mean, I don't know. So the coroner of looks, and there was nothing found in her airway that would prove she was alive when the fire started. Even if she took one to two breaths, there would be a microscopic amount in her lungs. So even if she was like dead, but still things were like circulating. She would get some in her lungs and her throat. And, but this wasn't the case. So with this new information, it's believed that the fire was started after she died. Now because

Nanette

's body was so badly burned, there was no way for them to do like a rape test kit on her or look for any signs of a struggle, or an attack. So they really didn't have much to go off of. So back at the crime scene, there were signs of gasoline that was used to accelerate the fire. So there's an accelerant that was used to get this fire going. The evidence showed that the gasoline was poured...
throughout the living room okay, and the master bedroom to ignite this fire. Now to investigators, that means this fire was set, intentionally. Investigators are able to locate a DVR, while they were searching the master bedroom. It was like buried in the debris. Inside Steve and

Nanette

's home, they had a huge monitor set up inside. They had a ton of security cameras. They had a camera out at the front gate. They had cameras all around the outside of their house. All of this was being recorded, and saved to this DVR. There's no way that someone could get in or out of the house without being caught on camera. So when the investigators find it, they believe that maybe it caught

what

happened

on the day of the fire, right? I mean, it would, it would have to. But actually, it was so badly burned that they're thinking, you know, maybe the killer, or whoever did this, knew it was there, because it was purposely doused in like a ton of gasoline to destroy it. So investigators, they end up sending out the DVR to the FBI in hopes to retrieve the footage from the day of the fire, because this is gonna tell them everything. Unfortunately though, the DVR was too badly damaged, and nothing could be retrieved off of it. And I know

what

you're all thinking. It's Steve, it's the husband. It's Steve. Okay, well, we're gonna get there, calm down. Investigators think, you know, it has to be someone who's familiar with the home, and the layout of the home,...
like where things are at. Because whoever had done it, they had to know where this DVR was, in order to make sure and destroy it. So, naturally they have to question Steve, because all signs are pointing to you, Steve, yeah. Not looking too good for you. Now Steve was completely understanding. He knew that, you know, he's the local fire chief. It's not looking good for him. So Steve stands by the fact that it was not him. It was not him. So investigators, though, they have to do some digging. And they uncover that the marriage between Steve and

Nanette

not so great, not so perfect. Steve, Steve, Steve, Steve, Steve,

what

was he doing? Well, Steve was having an affair. He was having an affair with this lady that he worked with at the station. There had been a couple of times when the

Nanette

went down to the fire, the firehouse to visit Steve. And she saw, you know how like he and the coworker mingling with one another, just kind of gave her this weird feeling. It seemed like they were kind of flirty.

Nanette

knew like something was up, like there's something more going on. And she confided in a friend of hers,

Nanette

, like I think something's going on. Now, not sure how, but

Nanette

did find out that Steve was indeed having an affair with this woman.

Nanette

then told her friend that it was true. She was devastated, but she was going to confront him.

Nanette

also told her friend, that she was going to leave Steve. And she just couldn't do it anymore. So...
like, many of us are thinking, the investigators are thinking, okay, maybe Steve killed her before she got the chance to file for divorce, and take half of everything. All signs are pointing to you, man. When Steve was questioned, he said that, yes, you know, he was having an affair, and that

Nanette

, she knew that he was having an affair. It was just a difficult time in their marriage. He said that they were probably going to separate, but they were also going to try and work through it, which was like two different answers. But, okay. Now, as the news is reporting on this and everything, like the community, everybody thinks it's Steve, okay. He wants to clear his name, because again he knows like it's not, it's just not looking good for him. So he actually goes to police, and he asked if he could take a polygraph test. And the police are like, "Wow, that's different, okay." So he ends up, Steve, he ends up taking a polygraph test, with no attorney present and he passed. Does that even mean anything? We don't know. We really don't know. Why they still use a polygraph test, we don't know. The major thing with investigators, was like, okay Steve had a solid alibi. He was literally at work all day, until he got that phone call at 2:30. So like, Steve isn't fully eliminated as a suspect, but they got nothing on him. So the night before the fire,

Nanette

and her good friend we're chatting on Facebook. Now the friend said that they...
were chatting back and forth for over an hour. And then all of a sudden the chat just like stopped. No goodbye, no anything, like, "Hey, gotta go." She was just gone. And the friend was like, okay, that's weird. But you know, okay. And this was around 10:30 PM, the night before Investigators looked into this, and like, they look at the bigger picture here. And they're like, you know

what

? There's actually no physical evidence that

Nanette

was alive the next day, the day of the fire. Other than Steve's word saying that she packed his lunch, and said goodbye to him, the morning of the fire. But there's no actual proof, that like she was alive that morning. So maybe, she was killed the night before. So investigators, they look into

Nanette

's bank account, or that her bank statements. And they see that there was a transaction made at McDonald's for around like $7, the morning of the fire, at around, almost 10:00 AM. So they have to go verify and make sure that this is indeed

Nanette

. So they go to the McDonald's. They get the video surveillance. And the footage is said to be really grainy. And they think it's her and her dog, a year after her death, they showed the footage to some of the family members, but some of them remain very skeptical. They're like, we don't know if that's her. You cannot tell if that's her, like you cannot see a clear shot of her face or anything. Police said that they didn't want to...
release the footage, to the media because of the cars that pulled up behind her in the drive-through. They needed to check them out first. But it's literally been years, and they still won't release, or show this footage. The sheriff now says that he is confident it's her, but they don't wanna share the footage, because it's an ongoing investigation, and they don't wanna compromise the case, which you think maybe they could share like a screen grab, just to prove to everyone, it was her. Because at this time, again, like the local news, everybody was talking about it, everybody. And people are just trying to figure out like

what

happened

? And many people believe, that

Nanette

was actually killed the night before, right? 'Cause like that kind of actually makes sense. This footage would put all of those rumors to rest, even just like a screenshot, but

what

the hell do we know? You know, they haven't done it. So once they see this footage from McDonald's, sheriff does a press conference, and the sheriff cleared Steve from their potential suspect list. Now this was very strange. They don't normally do this, but they did publicly. And they were going back to the drawing board. Investigators, they go and check

Nanette

's emails, hoping that will lead them somewhere. So

Nanette

's friend received multiple, multiple emails, from

Nanette

that stated her fear for her step-son, Justin. She would go on to say in these emails how dangerous he...
was. And she would tell her friend that she did not want to be alone with him, that she was afraid of him ,and just didn't feel safe.

Nanette

thought Justin had a bad temper, and she was just scared of

what

he was capable of. And then when he turned 18, he started to buy more guns. And then that's when

Nanette

became really afraid of him. He would carry more than one gun on him, and she felt like he wasn't responsible enough to be trusted with them, but he was also 18. So like there wasn't much she could do. Now

Nanette

would tell Steve that she didn't feel safe being alone with him which would lead to Steve telling Justin that he wasn't allowed at the house anymore, unless Steve was home too. And then of course, like naturally, Justin took offense to this, and it led to some kind of fight, but it was just

what

was best for the family. Justin ended up moving out, and he got married, just about like a year before

Nanette

's death. Based off of

what

they were reading, it just overall seemed like

Nanette

was afraid of the him. Now in interviews with Steve, he would say the complete opposite. He would say,

Nanette

and Justin didn't have a problem with one another. He, Justin, was just going through normal growing pains, and that he was just like an angsty teenager, you know? And that everything was good. It's very strange, because there's literally numerous emails from

Nanette

, to her friend saying like, "Hey, I'm scared of, he...
scares me." I don't know, maybe Steve missed it. I don't know. So investigators look into Justin and his whereabouts, the day of

Nanette

's death. And they see that he was actually working in Virginia at the time of the fire. He had an alibi, so he's out. And so time passes, and you know, they just don't really have many leads. But there's some rumors going around, that Steve, his brother, his name's Bryan, he may be the one who, who did this. Now let me tell you about Bryan over here. This guy is frickin' piece of work. He's been in jail numerous times, 36 arrests to be exact, maybe more by now, who knows? But he was arrested for various assaults. Assaults involving police officers, and just was in and out of jail a lot to say the least. Bryan didn't seem to like the

Nanette

all too much. Because back in 2015, Bryan had called up Steve late one night, and asked if he could come help him pull his car from a ditch. I guess Bryan got into some kind of accident, and his car was like stuck in a ditch. So he calls up Steve. It was super late, but Steve was like, "Okay, I'll come get you, like help you out." So Steve and

Nanette

both go out to where Bryan was at, but they had no luck getting Bryan's car out of the ditch. So they're just trying to help him out,

what

ever. And then that's when a state police officer sees like there's a little struggle going on, right. And they pull over. Now the police ends up...
finding drugs in Bryan's car, and Bryan was on parole. So he was arrested and taken in. Now it was said that Bryan was ******. He was ****** at Steve and

Nanette

, because he believed it was their fault that he got arrested, because they should have gotten there faster, and then he wouldn't have gotten arrested. Not because he had drugs in his car or anything, you know? No, it's because Steven and

Nanette

took too long to help him late at night. ♪ Taking no responsibility ♪ He gets arrested. It's like November of 2015, and this is his fourth DWI. His fourth, okay. How come they don't lock up the ones who really need to be locked up? That's the real question here. So since it was his fourth DWI, that led him to getting two years in jail. He was given a lotta chances, this guy. Bryan seemed to turn his frustrations towards

Nanette

a little bit more. So he would write her letters from jail. In one letter that Bryan wrote to

Nanette

, Bryan was threatening to r**e

Nanette

, k**l Steve, and then burn down their house. And it would be on the news. That's

what

it said in one of his letters, that was received two months before her death. Hello, hello. It's gotta be him, right? Hello. So

Nanette

gets this letter and she's getting' freaked out. She gets freaked out. She's like, dude, this guy's gonna r**e me, and he's like, he's only in prison for two years. Like this isn't good, right? So she ends up calling up the prison...
where he's at. She's begging them. Like, don't release him, please. He's threatening me, and I'm scared. But, (snickers) I'm laughing, because of how stupid this is. Because in September of 2016, Bryan was released due to good behavior. Yeah, he was released. He didn't even serve his full sentence. Hello, the chances of this guy offending again, this is his fourth DWI, that alone should be enough to lock him up for a long time. Hello? I just, it just ****** me off.

What

was I gonna say? I don't remember. Oh, yeah. He would end up serving the rest of his sentence on house arrest, at his parents' house, which was just 15 miles from Steve and

Nanette

's. His fourth DWI. Like, come on you guys.

What

the hell are you doing out there? So, great, cool. When word got out that Bryan was released.

Nanette

obviously, is on high alert. She's feeling very uneasy. She's telling Steve like he's out. I'm not feeling too safe. So his idea was like, let me put up more security cameras. So he gets more, he puts them up inside, and more outside of their home. And then he also put up a storm door, in front of their front door, which would give them more protection.

Nanette

also put a gun in her nightstand. She had one in her car, and she always had one in her purse. So she was struggling to feel safe. But the cameras and the guns, they made her feel a little bit better. It was said that she didn't like to go out much, because she thought...
that she was being followed, and she just felt safer at home behind all the cameras, and with their guns around. Okay, so Bryan gets out, right? Well, he's on house arrest. And while he's on house arrest, he has to wear an ankle bracelet. And this ankle bracelet would track his location, and monitor his alcohol levels. So this made Steve and

Nanette

feel a little bit safer, because the parole officer told Steve and

Nanette

, that there was gonna be a geo-fence on Bryan's anklet. If Bryan went a thousand feet within

Nanette

and Steve's home, an alarm would go off. And then the police would be notified, and they'd come out there right away. He'd be arrested, yada, yada, yada, right? So they're like, okay, like this makes us feel so much better knowing that if Bryan steps foot near our home, police are gonna be on it quickly. So a few months before

Nanette

's death she found a cigarette butt on the walkway to the front door. So she's thinking, or she knows like somebody's been here, because they didn't smoke. So who's cigarette butt was this? So she's getting nervous. And again, they live in a very secluded area. Like who the heck came up here? So then, she sees a random man kind of like down the pathway, and he's hanging out in front of her trash cans, and she snaps a photo of this guy, and she sends it to her dad. And she texts him, like, there's a creepy guy outside. He's just standing out there. You know, it...
scared her.

Nanette

tells Steve about this, the cigarette butt, and the random man. He says not to worry. She's over thinking it. It could have been from the mailman. It could have been like the UPS guy. She's just overreacting. But when Steve went to go check the cameras, 'cause they have so many cameras, coincidentally, they stopped working for some reason that day, they weren't recording. They didn't catch who the strange man was. Isn't that a little weird? Hm. One of the guys comes out to like fix the cameras. He works for the company. So the repair guy comes, to fix the camera, or

what

ever. And he tells, he tells

Nanette

like it's not the cameras that are the problem. The cameras, they were turned off by somebody. So there was no problem. They were simply taken offline. Now,

what

are the odds of that? So

Nanette

would tell Steve this, and that she was feeling scared. She was feeling nervous. And he would tell her, "Don't worry. You're just overreacting, something

happened

. Like you're just overthinking it. You're being paranoid." He's just downplaying her right? Now, this was frustrating to

Nanette

, like it would be, any of us would be frustrated at this, because she feels like Steve just wasn't taking her seriously. She was scared. Steve was supposed to protect her, or at least make her feel better. And he just wasn't. Well, get this. Let me tell you this. The stupidest thing you will ever hear. Let me...
put on my lip liner first. Hold on. Let me tell you, 'cause this is the dumbest thing. You will just wanna rip your eyeballs out. Okay, look. (scoffing) So after

Nanette

's death, Steve later finds out that Bryan, the brother, his ankle bracelet, yeah, it was never actually turned on, or activated. You got one job. Just activate it. It wasn't, it wasn't. So Steve talks to Bryan's parole officer, and says that he was told Bryan was being tracked. They told him that. But the parole officer's like, "Yeah I was receiving emails from the GPS company, and I was under the impression that it was indeed activated." All right. The only part that was activated was just the alcohol detector. Nobody has any idea how that slipped through the cracks. And nobody had any answers as to why that

happened

. But I think it's safe to say, that they are a **** mess over there. Hello?

What

are you guys, (snaps fingers) focus. Activate it. Like

what

you got,

what

are you doing? Hello? Anyways, so cool. Bryan of course, is looked into as a suspect, but he also had a solid alibi. Steve over here went to the home where Bryan was staying, because it was his parents' house. And he set up a bunch of cameras inside of the house where Bryan's staying. He's like a little camera man over here. I don't know

what

's going on. He's setting up cameras like everywhere. So there's cameras all on the inside, and it proved that Bryan was indeed inside the...
house when the fire took place, based off of

what

the footage showed.

Nanette

's family was asking if the police, or FBI, had like a chance to analyze the footage, to make sure that the footage wasn't tampered with, you know, was it legit? Are they sure? And they came back and said, that they had not had a chance to verify it yet, but they will look into it. I mean, it is a possibility. So unfortunately, this is where

Nanette

's murder still stands,

unsolved

. They got nothing. Now there's a lot of suspish-ness around this case. Okay, because like some people believe that maybe

Nanette

did indeed commit suicide. It could have

happened

. But when the scene was searched, there was little, there was very little blood found around the

Nanette

's body. Blood would have been, I don't wanna say melted. Is the word, burned into the floor where

Nanette

was? Like there were drops of blood around her, on the floor. But that's about it, which I don't mean to get graphic, but if you are shot in the head , there's going to be a lot of blood, and there wasn't. So it was making some people believe that perhaps

Nanette

was actually killed somewhere else in the house. And then she was later moved to that location. I agree with that. For the people who think it's suicide, I really don't, I really don't think. I mean,

what

are the chances, that there would also be a fire and the gasoline? I mean, that's a very dramatic way to go out. I don't...
believe it. The sheriff on this case, seems to like, he has some issues going on. I don't know

what

it is. Ego, I don't know, sir, you got something going on, because like one guy came out, and he spoke out against how the police handled this case. Like how they didn't properly search the scene, before giving it back to the family. How they labeled it as suicide before they even really looked into it. Just obvious concerns this person had, he spoke out against it. And then the sheriff said, that this guy had caused the family to lose faith in their investigations and had the man arrested. Yeah, arrested. Pretty sure that's his first amendment right. Like the sheriff has this little smug face when he talks about this case. And it's just odd. I don't know, some something ain't right. Something's not right.

Nanette

's family though, came out and said like we lost faith in the investigation a long time ago. Not because of this guy's opinion. Okay, so many believed and still do believe that Steve was involved somehow. I mean, it all makes sense. He's a fire chief. The fire in the house seemed to be well done. Someone who knew how to set a fire properly, may have done it. There was nothing left of this house. Just not like a candle fire, it was like a fire. It was fire. And also the fact, that the DVR was heavily burned, meaning somebody had to be familiar with where it was located. The fact that the cameras weren't working at times,...
when it seemed like it was needed most, you know. Also affair could potentially lose everything. I mean, dude, all signs, I'm sorry. They're pointin' to you, man. The only thing that they don't have on Steve, is the fact that many people can confirm that Steve was at work the next day. I stand by the theory that she was killed the night before. And that's probably why, whoever did it, burned up the living room so bad, because like that's where all the evidence would have been. Maybe she was killed in the living room. There was like blood everywhere on the carpet, moves her to the master bedroom, douses everything with the gasoline. Somehow does like a slow burn, or had someone go to the house and set the fire. There's really no proof that she was alive the next day. They say they see her on the McDonald's footage. But do they? Because I just think the sheriff is maybe perhaps, covering something up. Anyway, so okay, let's just say, Steve did go to work. He wasn't the one who did it.

What

about the cousin? The cousin who called, remember, in the beginning. At like 2:30, the cousin calls Steve, like, "Hey, your house is on fire." Did they ever question that guy? Because I tried to look for it, and I couldn't find any information that they questioned him, or her, whoever it was. I'm assuming they did, because why wouldn't they? But kind of seems like, you know the investigators are not doing their best on this one. So...
I guess I can't expect too much. 'Cause

what

if the cousin started the fire, huh? Okay, let's just leave the cousin alone. Sorry, cousin. Bryan, 'cause Steve was setting up all these cameras in the house, like very fricking weird. For somebody who wasn't that close to his brother, why would he set up cameras in the house? He said he wants to protect his mom and dad. But

what

if it was to prove that Bryan was there? I don't know. I mean, if Bryan was indeed not the one who did it, 'cause he had a strong alibi, they could have shown the footage, or even a screen grab of Bryan at home. But it's possible, footage could have been tampered with. The letter to

Nanette

, pretty questionable and specific. For all we know,

Nanette

could have been killed the night before. And the only thing we have to go off of, is Steve's word and sorry, Steve. I'm really sorry to say this, but you're not very reliable. You cheated on your first wife. You also cheated on

Nanette

. You don't make credible statements, when needed most, it seems. Hmm. That's just my opinion. So why should we believe you now? Steve, Bryan and Justin, the sheriff. They're all a little off. Okay, something ain't right here.

Nanette

's case is still an open investigation. They're hoping that somebody talks. Someone has to know something. I mean, hello, us humans, we like to talk, okay. Nobody actually holds a secret forever. Nobody actually holds a secret...
forever. Someone knows something. So if you have any information regarding

Nanette

Krentel

's murder, please call CrimeStoppers, at 504-822-1111. I'll put it in the description box. Maybe someone out there watching knows something, and could help bring this murder, and

Nanette

's family, some peace, you know. I would love to hear your guys' theories down below. I just feel like it has, like Steve is related in some way. And that's my personal opinion, because that fire, he's a fricking fire chief, like, come on.

What

are the odds of that? Like

what

a dumb a**. You know of course that's the way you do it, fire. Because you're too dumb to think of a different way. Come on. You cannot convince me that he's not involved somehow. I'm sorry. That's my personal opinion, though. I don't know. I don't know. I'm in a box.

What

do I know? I'm not an investigator,

what

ever. But I will love to hear your guy's opinions down below, opinions only. Let's not make wild accusations. (laughing) Anyway, I hope you guys have a wonderful rest of your day. A good week ahead. Please make good choices out there. I love and appreciate you guys so much. And yes, I will be seeing you next week. I might have another

unsolved

story. If you guys like it solved, let me know. All right, I'll be seeing you guys later. ♪ Byeeeeeee ♪ (adventurous dramatic music)
