    Yes, the press conference said that they could determine this to an all-but-certainty at least 30 mins ago, IIRC; and I feel pretty sure this is because they found enough of a 5'5" 110lb blonde to say with 98% certainty it was her.

    I don't think they were relying upon some severed finger with a ring upon it when they made their determination, or similar. I think they "all but knew" until they checked the dental records to be certain.

    I imagine the helicopter crew saw a patch of relatively freshly dug earth. That is one thing that they look out for when they suspect someone may have been murdered.

    This is a screenshot from the vlogger's raw video, right before they come even with Gabby's van ( you can see the back of it in the picture). Are these two people circled? The one on the left side has a backpack?

    Edit: I brightened the image as far as I could on my phone

    Been following this story for a couple of days now and... I think we all knew this was coming, but it's still incredibly sad.

    I can't imagine what Gabby's family are going through right now. To think she was just travelling doing vanlife with her fiancé, the person who it would seem as though she loved and wanted to marry.

    I personally believe that Brian killed her, whether it was accidental or not (although most likely not or else why did he run away from the scene instead of notifying the police what had happened? It would have saved him a bunch of prison time). I also do believe that his family were aware, which is why they have been quiet about it... and although it is terrible for her family to be left wondering, I can see why they would have covered for him.

    Hopefully he's found soon enough and there can be some answers.

    Interesting they are seeking info from the 27th-30th specifically… why not 26th?

    The audio/video of the stop by police is filled with red flags of domestic abuse which is a crime. The officers who participated need more intensive training in recognition and intervention. I was shocked after watching that video that BL was treated as the victim.

    Every parent should learn these red flags to ensure if their child is ever involved in a toxic relationship, they can provide a support system to extract them safely. One thing most people don't realize is that emotional abuse can be just as devastating as physical abuse and they can start in high school. If Gabby had communicated how she was feeling and being treated to her parents, I have no doubt her dad would have been there in a flash to drive her home. JMO

    No. He is NOT a victim here and he certainly is not the #1 victim. Gabby, the gal he left rotting on the side of the road, is the number 1 victim. And then her family.

    They did not arrest him because they need a solid case first.

    But to your point, there is not one shred of evidence to suggest that BL killed her. None, zilch.

    Unless LE found some kind of weapon/instrument with her remains that she used, i.e. a knife, a gun, a large rock, etc..... then I think you can rule out suicide. It might be possible that she cut off her air supply, but it is extremely difficult to choke oneself.

    "I am making a personal request to members of the press and news media to refrain from contacting the Schmidt and Petito family," lawyer Richard Benson Stafford said in a statement Sunday. Due to today's developments, we are asking the press and news media to have some decorum and sensitivity for Gabby's family and allow them to grieve. I will be in contact with you when Gabby's family is ready to make a public statement."

    "I would also like to personally thank the FBI, the Suffolk County Police Department, the North Port Police Department and especially the Grant Teton Search and Rescue team," the statement continued. "Your tireless work and determination helped bring Gabby home to her parents. The family and I will be forever grateful."
    FBI: Human remains found in Wyoming likely Gabby Petito

    "As far as hurting himself in there, we don't know that one way or another. I think it's a possibility certainly, " Josh claimed. "Does anyone not think it's possible he went out there and shot himself in the head? Sure," before adding, we don't have any information about where he's at."

    If you watch the raw Bethune video, with the resolution turned way way up to the highest setting (2k), I don't think there is anyone visible. JMO.

    I think the lower resolution stills and video have artifacts and pareidolia at work. MOO

    He had 2300 miles of open country and a million opportunities to commit suicide between the crime scene and his familial nest. He chose being a fugitive.

    We have a family here who essentially let an accused murderer walk if he gave up where he buried their son. (It was a difficult case to prosecute in the first place, and they weren't having much success in its prosecution.)

    He gave up the location, and the family were somewhat soothed to have their boy home.

    Because they know that she was alive at some point on Aug 27 to snapchat with a friend.

    I hope he is alive so that he and his family can witness justice happen for Gabby. He needs to face that justice, not take the cowardly way out. And I want his parents to see that happen.
