Witness allegedly makes statement on Facebook

Post from Brittany Bowers claims she's laughing on a beach in Florida
Nov 15, 2013

A key witness in the Jacob Limberios killing hasn't been called to testify in front of a special Sandusky County grand jury, but a Facebook post that appears to be from her suggests she's unavailable even if she were subpeonaed

"While your are all talking s**t, I'm here in Florida laughing on the beach," the post states. "Good things happen to good people, guess my karma isn't all that bad."

The grand jury re-convened this morning at the Sandusky County Courthouse and called famed forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden.

Watch extended clips from today's "Dr. Phil" program with Bowers and results from a lie detector test she took in September. 

Watch 'Between the Lines Live' from 4 to 5 p.m. today with the Limberios family and supporters of Justice for Jake as they gather to watch Day 2 of the "Dr. Phil" program about Jacob Limberios' death in March 2012. 



Because a TV show is going to "tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?" Please!


Hey dick her first lie detector test came back clean.


Hey Mike, I know! Even Will said the second lie detector test was far more professional than the first.

Why would anyone believe the results from the first po-dunk test and incompetent investigation, over an FBI specialist?


So you are saying the AG's office is incompetent?


Actually mikesee, her first test came back "inconclusive"....big difference between that and clean!

Only thing that I can say is my personal opinion.

It seems 'odd' that she would be conveniently out of state while the Grand Jury was questioning the people surrounding the situation. I would think that I would want to be there to make sure that my part of the story was told so that I could be of clear mind and help the family of Jacob rest assured that I was not part of anything other than being there when this tragedy took place.

This is just my opinion.


My opinion of Brittany on the show was she was heartless and this Facebook post makes me feel that way more...reminds me of Curtis Clinton's outburst to his victims family yesterday...kicking them while they're down so to speak. I commend the Limberios's composure while she sat across from them, I wouldn't have had half their strength. I think she needs to stay in Florida, she won't be smiling much here in Erie County.

The fake crying on Thursday helped make my opinion. Sad.


So many things can be said. I met this young woman for the first time not too long ago, not knowing who she was and that she was linked to this tragedy. Although not one thing was mentioned of this case, she pretty much had the same personality/demeanor as she did on the show. If she or one of the other two "friends" in the room shot Jake, even accidentally, that is something they all have to live with. No matter what happened in that room, the truth should be told. Dr. Phil stated the truth will set them all free. I feel so terrible for Mr. and Mrs. Limberios. They only want the truth. They deserve the truth. The whole truth. The post on her Facebook is absolutely disgusting and extremely distasteful and disrespectful. Tonight's show will reveal more I am sure.

Where is the 3rd person that was at the house that night?


Just my theory, but I bet he was the shooter!



Good 2 B Me

They said that his lawyer refused to allow him to go on the show.


I thought Will seemed like he wants to say something but he's not, so he's just trying to convey his story over and over again. He seems like he cares and that's sad. Brittany just seemed like she wanted to keep up with poor me and quite frankly, pick on this family because they are making her life so hard. She didn't even seem to be empathetic with what the family is going though and I find despicable when you consider that she is the aunt of his daughter. Where has the 3rd person been through all of this?

A Young Adult's...

If I were the third person, I would stay as far away from the spotlight as possible. IF the witnesses are telling the absolute truth, then what they have gone through is absurdly inappropriate. If there is even a little bit of deceit, the third person is doing everything he can to stay away from it all which, frankly, I can't blame him.

A Young Adult's...

Innocent until proven guilty. Even in the case of incompetent police work. I don't question the Limberios family for going through this at all.

I also chuckle when people say "How is this news?" it's news because YOU are commenting on it. I, for one, am not bothered by the SR's posting of a PUBLIC Facebook post. If you are bothered by it, DON'T comment on the story. They post these things because they know people will read them.


Could the gun have not fallen to the floor and gone off and hit Jake from that angle?

Hey mike the first test came back unconclusive also
The test on dr.phil was they were lying. If you remember will put on his facebook the song by queen.I have looked at all the evidence at first like you I felt they were innocent but after seeing everything I am convinced they did (by accident) but they did it and they are not kids there adults.look at the whole picture before you pick sides I have no dog in this fight but after seeing the obvious J4J!!!!!!!

If I were in these kid's shoes, I'd be even more on the defensive than they are. And I'd certainly be filing a defamation of character suit against several media outlets and the "justice for jake" facebook page. The absolutely cruel things that are being said should not be said in public forums. Have your own opinion, fine, but guard your words lest you do more harm. Its shameful and I feel bad for even living near all of you and your lynch mob mentality. Not only did they witness a friend's death, they have been belittled, berated and have been vilified by their community. Have we really reached the point in society where bullying and name calling is so entertaining to people. Shame on you all.

Facts amanda facts can't hide from them! I don't know this family or these Adults not kids Adults and if you read and listen to all the Facts! I am pretty sure there's no lynch mob just Justice for a little girl that no longer has a father.

Amanda Halliday

Yes, someone died. Yes, that's a tragedy. But have you forgotten that those you are so easily condemning are human beings too? It seems you are. Too bad you never really pursued a career in forensics, eh? If you can so easily decide what the "facts" are. JUSTICE FOR BRITTANY AND WILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have studied a bit about forensics and the science here doesn't lie. If you have seen the photo of the 357 being fired, it is clearly evident Jake would have had stippling had he shot himself. That is at the very least. If you haven't seen the photo of Jake firing the 357, I suggest you view it before mentioning forensics again. Common sense will tell you if it were a contact wound there would definitely be stippling from this weapon. When someone is shot from a distance of greater than 18" the chances of finding stippling or GSR decrease to about nil. No one really needs a degree in forensic science to figure that one out.

Your friends have a horrible memory of a grizzly death they will live with for the rest of their lives; I don't envy them. I wouldn't want to close my eyes at night with that on my mind. The shadow of suspicion they have cast on themselves has been their own doing. This ex FBI polygrapher is not going to rig a polygraph test and risk his integrity for a television show. His reputation is his livelihood, not the Dr. Phil Show. Will and Brittany's results were real, not made for TV. There is something they are leaving out.


well said red white blue


yes they are human beings but when science and evidence proves otherwise how can you expect others to support them.J4J


There could have been four questions on the Dr Phil show that would have answered a lot more questions. The first two were legitimate questions for this case.

The third question....Did you accidentally shoot Jacob.

The fourth question....Did anyone in the room, besides Jacob, accidentally shoot Jacob.

If the first two questions which were asked came back deceptive, as they did, then the 3rd and 4th could have possibly given more answers.


Another question: Can they prove they were the only people in the house?


Aren't any of these people under a gag order?

Doesn't that include social media sites and public comment sections?

Getting on here to infer or imply things or throwing out "hints" should not be allowed until is all said and done.
