    Saw the press conference live. Was devastated.
    Was surprised to the the guy giving it FBI supervisory position seem shaken up... almost tearful. I started to cry then. Feds usually don't get emotional like that.
    Also was interesting how short they were with "on going investigation". Makes me thing they know the cause of death or the scene was pretty bad.

    I believe the Bethunes came upon the van and BL right near the time he had buried her (perhaps at dawn) or was about to bury her at nightfall. Very amazing that they came down that road and filmed the van -only 1000 feet from where she was found. One of the positive aspects of social media and the good it can do. They were the key to finding her and bringing some peace to her family and friends.

    JB Biunno at WFLA is a compassionate, empathetic man.

    How is this known?
    Is there a map we can see?

    So sad for the Gabby’s family. Another young life ended too soon. I hope they find the SOB!

    Likely because it says "the body of Gabby Pertito" found... when it hasn't been confirmed it was indeed her body? Until it's confirmed it should only be stated as "a body".

    How was it determined it was only 1000 ft from where the van was seen? Searchers appeared to be on horseback which would not seem to be consistent with this.

    This is where the van was seen on the side of the road and where they found the body

    It's good for Gabby's family that they will know what happened to her and have her remains to lay to rest. I know we are all so sad for them.

    I'm not sure what you mean about when to talk to a suspect? My understanding was he refused to talk altogether. And how do we know LE believed anything his parents said? I don't think they did.

    Yes. Consciousness of guilt can be powerful evidence. Here it certainly seems to be super strong.

    If you have followed the case of Qinxuan Pan shooting Kevin Jiang in Conn. and eluding LE for 4 months, Pan's parents also refused to talk to LE. And Pan was arrested in an Alabama hotel using a fake name, fake ID cards, $19,000 in cash that was likely provided or supplemented by his parents, 7 cell phones and 7 SIM cards (to elude cell phone tracking), *AND* his father's passport. So Pan's parents helped Pan even more to escape. But 7 months after Pan shot Jiang, Pan's parents have never been charged with ANYTHING. So don't be surprised if BL's parents are also never charged with anything either.

    I have very little doubt about his guilt. At the same time, nothing in this world is 100%. Nothing.

    I hope he’s found alive and prosecuted to the fullest extent.

    Right. My opinions concur with yours. I'm just, perhaps in a futile way, trying to keep comments within TOS and make things easier on the mods who must be breaking their backs trying to make sure we're not saying anything that could sway a jury on the off-chance BL or anyone else has to face up to anything in court. However we feel about that.

    I was willing to call it a lover's spat until I found out he was willing to pay the campers for a $200 ride for 10 miles, that he doubled back to van and booked.
    He paid to lead them away from the scene of the crime.

    Sending everyone big giant hugs. Broken hearted mom here of a free spirited young woman just one year younger. I don't have any other words.
