If true, these people really are stupid. The laptop was allegedly sent to the repair shop because Joe got mad and threw it in a pond. Yeah, I guess there's no recovery from that. Hunter should have buried it on the property and replaced it. He obviously has enough money to drop $2k on another MacBook Pro. If you have compromising material on a laptop and your creepy stupid dad throws it in a pond, replace it. Or at the very least, pour a bunch of rice in a tote and throw the laptop in there for a few days or weeks until the moisture is out of it. It might still work. Or remove the hard drive and destroy it, then dispose of the rest of the laptop in a landfill or something, or bury it if you have a lot of property. I guess that's too much work for international deal-makers though.
