    IMO the swamp park is a red herring. I don’t believe he has any experience that would allow him to even contemplate a night there.
    And provided LE doesn’t scrutinize carefully whether DL’s experience matches up with an overnight bivouac—or even a few hours—in the swamp park, they are wasting search resources and time. I feel so sorry for LE having to search in a nasty-creature swamp park… They were probably consumed by mosquitoes.

    The Sentinel said high-profile, but the DoS article didn’t. They did list multiple fugitives connected to various murders. Obviously, all of this is just speculation, I just think that would be a lot more convenient for him if he had the means to get there since he’s basically on the water.

    Unbelievably cruel from one mother to another.

    It's not a crime to not rescue someone, but it is a crime to cover it up.

    When you look at the raw footage of the dashcam that found the van in the area, there are surprisingly quite a number of campers out there in the general vicinity. I was imagining somewhere much more remote and desolate.

    If GP had screamed, say in the middle of the night, do you think they were close enough that someone would've heard it? It might not mean much but the fact that no one did seems like it wasn't a prolonged chase or anything, or a bear attack in the middle of the night. It also doesn't seem secluded enough for him to be dragging a body out in the middle of this place. It's not a place you'd choose if you premeditated this. Went for a walk, got into a fight and he just lost it, attacked her and then panicked and ran? That's my guess.

    He seems like am emotionally weak and immature person so running back home to Ma and Pa in denial seems fitting. Hiding afterwards and lawyering up and pretending it will all go away if he ignored it seems to also fit. But he can't stop thinking about it over and over, so he keeps playing the badger song which he thinks means something only to him and relives the trauma - that kind of also makes sense. He's most likely taken the easy way out and killed himself with a gun if there was one in the home. Shoot himself in the park to be eaten by critters, and be part of nature again. He didn't "mean" to hurt her, regrets all of it, but he's immature. JMO.

    OR he's been stuffed away somewhere by parents and spending his time on the internet, like this website. All of it MOO

    My apologies if the Jeep following the bus has been addressed.

    The husband drives their bus while his wife follows him by driving their Jeep.

    Their video footage was the universe's way of locating Gabby for everyone. The rainbow over the site was a gift for the searches who, I'm sure, were quite shaken by the discovery.

    Finally able to read some of this thread now that the site has dwindled down in traffic for the night.

    In line with everything else that makes no sense, I can't grasp why Brian's parents would have gone back to retrieve the Mustang.

    If they believed Brian went out to the swamp area with plans to return but didn't, retrieving the Mustang makes no sense. If they believed he went out there to end his life and not return, and they were genuinely concerned about his whereabouts and welfare, retrieving it doesn't make much sense either.

    For Brian, amidst a media circus and lynch mob at the doorstep, to make a casual exit through the back, is a story in and of itself. For him to possibly enter the swamp and execute some sort of strategy with a Mustang that gets returned by his parents to their house in the middle of the night where none of the numerous media reporters camped out happen to notice...is another ridiculous story. I have a hard time believing one, let alone both.

    Not necessarily - if she was buried and the air couldn’t get to her body it would be reasonably intact. That’s what happened with Chelsea King I recall.
    Ugh it makes me sick to think he just left her there like that.

    The way BL parents appeared to have assisted him reminds of Ethan Couch, and how his parents swooped to his aid regardless of outright disgusting behaviour and actions.

    IKR? They could have a story to explain things.

    It's always possible.

    It's just nigh onto IMpossible to imagine any story they have that could be remotely plausible.

    I was thinking about all the angles too... but in this scenario if she was found as close to the van as it's being said...didn't he going looking for her/ ask nearby campers about her before just taking off?

    That is absolutely sick and sickening.
    There is nothing that makes that OK.
    Not saying anything is bad enough, but ignoring Mom trying to reach them is basically torturing her.

    Too much is being made of him trying to lock himself in the van (as well as the fact that she was on the title). He admitted trying to get away from her, it stands to reason the van was the best option.

    Nah, he would not know what to do or how to live without his mommy or his girlfriend to look after him. What has he ever done in his life but follow Gabby around and put her down for having a dream?

    Gabby's family wants one thing: the truth. If the Laundrie family doesn't want to do that, then they should say nothing at all. It's nothing but empty words, as their actions are what matter.

    Gabby's family wanted to know where their daughter was, and law enforcement had to figure that out on their own.

    This family has obstructed at every turn, and each self serving statement only shines a light on that.

    Yes, but you also can't cover up a crime you are not aware of.

    Ugh, yes. Sounds dreadful!

    For it to be a red herring, lies would have to be told. It's hard to imagine anyone without a prior criminal record or terrible reputation being capable of doing something like that, so I'm very curious! Not gonna say any more because I don't want to violate the TOS. But, I'm so curious.
