Albert Lambert's brother in law returns to house where police say Lambert took his own life

Friends stop at home to check in on family

MIAMI, Fla. - About 24 hours after police say he helped carry his brother-in-law's body out of a Miami home, Jaime Reyes returned. 

Reyes wouldn't say what he and his wife Mari Lambert, Albert Lambert's sister, were doing with Albert's body. Reyes left today with a couple bags in hand. 

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office wants to get to the bottom of it.

"We want to know what the sister or (husband) knew about the situation down there, if there was an information about that. Of course we're not going to get a chance to question him. But we would just like to put a few more final touches on it," said Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw.

The sheriff says he hopes Mari was taking her brother's body to the hospital, the closest one is about a mile away. But it's unknown if that was her plan.

"There's no crime here, and then to hear something like this that goes on, it's shocking," said Chris Campbell, a neighbor. 

Friends of the family stopped by the house Monday to say they're concerned.

Albert's brother Walter, who lives in North Miami Beach, asked for privacy and gave this statement:

This has been a horrible tragedy, we've lost two family members. Our hearts, sympathies and prayers are with Albert's daughters Sarah, Sofia and Savannah, as well as with Kimberly who has been a beloved member of our family for over 20 years.
