    First this man should clearly be more stressed than BL. . kids, dogs, snacks. . . but he's just enjoying his life. Grateful to him for noticing and his footage.

    Not really. If it's an accidental death, we would need to know when that occurred. If BL had known about it, he should have alerted authorities anyway. You can't just leave a dead body somewhere.

    Maybe they should just shut up.

    You can clearly see the tented area and under it as the tent is unfolded. There is no body on the immediate ground. She's buried or partly buried.

    She didn't kill and bury herself. Didn't happen.

    Yup. And interesting that BL's parents aren't saying, "Maybe it's not her." They knew she was dead.

    Was she buried in a dry creekbed, potentially of which he hoped one day she would be underwater? They say it's a remote location but it feels very open with people relatively close by. IMO, she died there and that's why she was buried near there.

    Poor Gabby. );

    One thing is for sure. Whoever is responsible will ultimately be held accountable. Judgment is coming and there is nothing they can do to stop it.

    I don’t believe in coincidence. I believe angels and divine intervention put Nichole there to help find Gabby. Bless you!

    Horses are how you cover a lot of ground and be out there for long stretches. SAR teams can be trained to search from horseback.

    I think the chance
    I think the chances that Gabby killed herself and he left grieving, are at about ZERO %.

    My compassion for Brian and his parents is also at about ZERO.

    Let's be realistic. If she had killed herself, there would be no reason for him to stop all communication and let her body rot in the elements. He could have and should have told authorities about it and had her body handled with love and concern and returned to her family.

    He left it to the wild animals and insects, hoping it would be in no condition for forensics to find evidence iff what he did to her, IMO.

    Firstly it is so sad, frustrating and not surprising how this has ended but to this point about the doors on the van closing as the RV approaches (not that it has much relevance TBH...) having watched the 4K video frame by frame. It is just shadows casting and bouncing through trees in the strong sunlight. IMO.

    He left her there. Stole her van. Lawyered up. Now he is hiding.
    She didn't kill herself. As someone else asked, did she bury herself too?
    His parents aren't the ones who begged and pleaded for help finding Gabby for the past three or four weeks.
    They aren't the ones who lost a daughter.
    BL is a coward.

    No excuses for him and his family who let Gabby stay concealed, hoping, IMO she would be dispersed by animals before he was charged with anything. The utmost in cowardice. Rotten to the core. No redeeming virtues.

    How cruel, so very cruel to treat Gabby, her parents and step parents, and her FIVE LITTLE BROTHERS AND SISTERS LIKE SO MUCH DEBRIS.

    Also the news anchor said the chopper saw what they believed was relevant evidence around noon and they have been holding it back until LE confirmed and notified the family. I think they have chopper footage that they are not releasing for obvious reasons. I think we'll learn more when the coroner releases initial findings.
