None that I've ever found. This is one of the only cases I've taken time to look for information online. I found some articles written by a local paper in that area but the contact info was outdated for the writer. How awful to not know what happened. Out of a lot of cases, that one kinda stayed with me. Someone knows something at that University I believe.

I think the reason it's so unforgettable is because of the macabre nature of the "crime." As a parent, I don't think I would be content to bury a foot and a shinbone. I would totally want to know what happened. It's such a strange case.

Perhaps it may have been suicide but then its hard not to think of foul play when the only peice or remians were found was a shin bone and a foot makes one think of dismemberment,, quick someone check and see if Lenonard Rizzo was in RI at the time of Bryan disappearance... we all know how good he is at chopping up bodies...

I watched the segment again recently as well. Honestly, it seems like they have everything backwards. I believe his mother has it nailed as far as what happened. The issue I have is the way he felt threatened. He felt threatened to the point where he wanted to get out of there. Now if it were a case of someone just threatening to out you, does this really make you want to call your dad (who you're supposedly afraid of coming out to in the first place) to come get you and take you to safety? As far as the segment showed, he felt like he was in real danger. Because of his writings and what the reporter said, I feel like maybe it was Bryan who was ready to come out and the other guy who was not comfortable with this. I feel like the police were just not interested in following up with the case. The other guy involved could have easily lied and said the threats were in jest. As far as the foot turning up, this screams of dismemberment. Who knows. The guy could have got him while he was at his spot by the bridge. The suicide argument just doesn't make sense. The segment is also distracting because the actor playing Bryan looks nothing like him.

I wonder if the hate crime angle has ever been looked at in this case?

From what I've read...the local police and investigators were uncomfortable with the homosexual angle from the start...so to investigate it as a hate crime would be hard do to the fact that some of them had prejudices of their own. I'm sure the parents and any investigators that they hired would have looked into it...but not local police and law enforcement. I know I read something about this a year or so ago and it made the police look like they had no interest in getting into anything with homosexuality because their only opinion was that Bryan had committed suicide and that's it.

For all the years I've been watching UM, I am amazed at how many of the cases portrayed are "police think it's suicide and the parents/family say it was murder". If I made a list, it would fill a page, easily.

I'm not sure if anyone has read this article on the case but it's certainly an interesting read. http://www.bostonphoenix.com/alt1/ar..._WILLIAMS.html

Bryan's parents said that his former friend(who's named Josh Cohen) seem to control Bryan. On the other hand, the police said that Bryan wasn't even close to his former friend. Frankly, I trust Bryan's parents more so than the police regarding Josh Cohen. What kind of person calls someone around midnight to threatened them? Cohen sounds shady to me.

Is it a given that Bryan was dismembered? Or is that just the result of nature?

I find it hard to believe that college student would bother and would think to dismembering just to hide the body.

I don't think anyone can say for sure that Nisenfeld was dismembered. Roger Williams university is located within a bay, so who knows what could have gotten a hold of his body.

About Cohen, there's no hard evidence that he killed Nisenfeld. We don't even know if Nisenfeld committed suicide. However, it seems rather strange that Nisenfeld's parents said that he seemed to have some sort of control over Bryan. Add to that, Bryan said that his former friend called him up at night, and threatened him. Although the police claim the former friend has little to do with case, I think otherwise. There has to be something, directly or indirectly.
