    Did we ever figure out which convenience store Gail stopped at?

    Remember MP said he got a change of address form on 5/4, and I think it was dated 4/30? So, did Gail do that online very early in the morning, or did she stop while they were driving back from AL and do that or what? That doesn't sound like something a suicidal person would do, IMO.

    Some other things:

    With the recent storms, maybe the ground was muddier than usual and that made it easier for the boulder to go over? Just trying to figure out how that plays in.

    Also wondering if Gail dropped something, maybe her cell phone, and was reaching for it and lost control? Unlikely maybe, but not impossible.

    I was one of those who suspected MP strongly in the beginning. I wanted him investigated and either exonerated or charged, as the case may be, in the interest of finding Gail. The circumstances as reported by Gail's family, LE, and even MP himself, were compelling. If I ever went missing under those circumstances, I would want someone questioning it too.

    I've heard it said that AD is to blame for getting people all stirred up and thinking the worst about MP. Yet AD WAS NOT the source (or in the case of being afraid, not the sole source), of ANY of what made me the most suspicious.

    Now, however, we have more information than we had before. We know where Gail was all this time. The new information makes me suspect him less. If the investigation reveals this was just a tragic accident, then so be it. If those who thought MP was involved were wrong, and those who thought Gail abandoned her kids were wrong, so be it.

    I just hope that 1) we get some definitive answers, 2) Gail is memorialized in a way deserving of her memory, and 3) Gail's family can continue to play a part in the lives of her children.

    BBM.. Unfortunately the information revealed as to the exact spot where LE is claiming she went off the mountain makes me suspect MP even more than I originally did, IF thats possible...JMHO

    The attacking car would have to keep propelling to get her to go in the direction of the bluff across the grass pushing the heavy rock thus making another set of tracks.

    IMO, unless GP was going at a very high rate of speed a bump from behind would not have sent her that far out of control.

    GP’s gentle nature doesn’t led one to think she would speeding through a quiet residential area known for walkers of all ages being present.

    I think the HCSD is being delicate by calling it an accident.

    Hi Jade, I agree with pretty much everything you said, but I am curious about the bolded statement. Are you saying that you think that Gail purposely drove off the mountain or that it wasn't an accident? Thanks, Melodie

    This is a lovely sentiment...but...when you are afraid...any number of things could happen....I do not think someone would have to hit Gail to cause an accident. It would be logical to use speed to evade a tail. JMO

    I'm a local who has followed this case from the time it (finally) was mentioned in the media. I never met Gail and don't know anyone who knew her, but her case has touched me and so many people who live in this community. I feel more should have been done to help find Gail from day one. Many people are so sad for her and for her children. I'm grateful for the people who worked so hard to keep her story in the media. Without their help I don't know if Gail and the Jeep would have ever been found.

    My house is about a mile from the site where her Jeep went over the bluff... the entire mountain now knows the exact spot. I know six people who this week decided to drive the East Brow Road site where the Jeep went over...including the man who lives across the road from it. None, except for me, had preconceived opinions. Each person, and that includes me, said the same thing: this had to be intentional.

    Either Gail had an incredible plan devised, where circumstances aligned and she returned her children to her home even as she thought someone was following and threatening her. She told her sister as she drove that she was afraid and asked the police to meet her. Yet amidst all the drama of the past days and months she was then able to drive to the Brow Road site and execute a seemingly impossible 90' right angle turn at exactly the spot where the stone wall was just barely wide enough to drive a Jeep through, and continue on through grass and a hedge to fall to her death. Or something else happened.

    I've driven East Brow Road hundreds of times. It's at such a high elevation and has such a sheer drop to the valley that it seems you're looking out an airplane window. It is, however, a perfectly straight road -- no curves or dips or undulations. When driving from the Hampton Road side and driving up toward the site the Jeep went over, I found it impossible to see how anyone could thread the needle to drive through that small opening without doing damage to something other than a rock -- and they are rocks, not huge boulders. The area there is a lot more narrow than the elongated view that Google shows. Coming from the other direction (from the W Road side) is just as bad -- the driver is on the "house" side of the road and has the smallest bit more of a view when driving. Still not enough that any of the six people I know said they would be able to maneuver.

    As I said before, six people have this week driven the route and each one said there was no way this was anything except intentional. Their ages range from a 28 year-old man who drives a truck for a living and drives the road regularly, to the 70-something person who lives on the Brow Road and drives it daily.

    If any other locals are reading this, it would be very insightful to hear from you with your thoughts about the accident site. Looking at it on the map and actually driving it makes a huge difference. Please take the time to drive it and see what you think. I hope this is thoroughly investigated and not pronounced a tragic accident. Many things that happen in our county result in being called a tragic accident -- we already know that much, but has every possible scenario been investigated as to what caused it?It's sad to miss someone you never met. Many on this mountain feel that way.


    F. Lee, Count me in. I too am local and have to agree with you and the others who have driven by the scene on the Brow. I have been out there specifically to drive it as you do and experience the spacial feeling of that location. I also have to reiterate that the images such as those on Google do give an inacurate perception of space, making it seem much wider than it is. A 90 degree turn in this particular area would be extremely awkward and difficult, especially when traveling from Hampton towards the W.

    Thank you so much for writing that! I think many of us had heard all about this case and formed some opinions before AD ever did a single interview with the media. I based my own personal opinion on things MP said himself and the circumstances of the disappearance, also based on things LE said to the press.

    And seriously, if AD had never existed I would probably have the same opinions. But I'm so glad Gail had a loyal friend - those are rare in the world.

    A person on a mountain, being tailed - chased by a vehicle trying to make them crash, is scared to death, does not have many options, cell phone service irregular and probably needs two hands on the steering wheel anyway. I don't think there is any way the other vehicle touched her as the perpetrator would not leave any identification marks on her vehicle.

    Two things that point it was not suicide - the forwarding address she filled out and she had her cell phone charging. If she was on a mission to drive off the mountain, why would she be charging her phone??

    Did Gail have a divorce lawyer? Had she advised her lawyer she was being tailed?

    For future references, if you have a good divorce lawyer, be sure to notify them if you are or think you are being tailed.

    I pray that Law Enforcement will have enough evidence to come to a conclusion about how Gail lost her life. I have thought about her every day since she disappeared; and although I find some comfort that she was found so that her remains are not left to the elements any longer; I am sad that she died alone. I am sad for her children to grow up without their mom, and the comfort and love only a mom can give. May they be loved well by their family.
