    I think it's safe to assume that this kind of interaction happened many, many times. Putting the pieces together with what GP's friend said, this was a long-standing pattern.

    How swampy is the area Brian's parents live? Imo, they know where he is, and while they may not directly be "hiding" him per se, I think they are keeping his location secret for selfish reasons. Wonder if they would realistically be charged for that.

    Also, just want to remind everyone that newlywed couple Kylen Schulte and Crystal Beck's killer is still on the loose - please feel free to join us on their thread too.

    BL could have crossed my living room at any point in the first week of September and I'd think he was a repair guy. MOO -- he had plenty of time to go anywhere, certainly legally, but also undetected (before this thing blew up).

    I would normally agree with this but I don’t think BL has it in him to kill himself. I just don’t get that vibe at all. I think he would be more likely to blame everyone else and manipulate his family into letting him stay at a vacation property they own. He’s pretty important to himself.

    Oh interesting! That's an angle worth exploring. That could explain a funded getaway, should there be one. Wow.

    Staying mum and not answering mom's texts is extreme and extremely sick. There is no excuse.

    It's quite eerie to have two such strange cases occur in the same place in roughly the same time-span, terrible stuff.

    what makes me so sad about all of this-- was gabby so isolated she didn't feel she could tell anyone about their issues? for example, their fight on august 12th, if that happened to me my mom, siblings, and close friends would know every detail from me. i've dated my share of very abusive men, and i lost friends because they saw me being abused but i wasn't strong enough to walk away. i knew they were being abusive, i'd cry to friends and family multiple times a week, but it was hard getting away. i just couldn't imagine being abused and then .. i guess suffering alone. god she has to have a reddit account or something somewhere that she'd vent, right ? where all the details from her POV are posted?

    From what i'm able to gather, they were at Moonflower Co-op for 5-6 hours the morning of August 12th. they got into a fight that included BL saying he didn't think GP could be successful, he took the keys (?) from her, thinking she was going to leave him and she scratched him. then he locked himself inside the van when she climbed in through the window. but i really wish someone knew how everything went down.. like she didn't text her mom every detail ? :(

    How do we know he’s a “skilled outdoorsman”? BL’s parents told LE, maybe? I wouldn’t trust that!

    I agree with the probabilities of suicide over running. But, he was not a wanted man. He wouldn’t need false documents to start a new life in another country. JMO

    Ok so many want to give BL some kind of benefit of a doubt and let's just say he did go off without Gabby and she got worried and went out to find him, and I guess just fell out on the ground and died. Then when Brian returned he couldn't find her and thought, oh he'll, guess she was more pissed then I thought, well fine I'm leaving then. And drove back to Florida...now, that's about the dumbest thing Ive ever heard IMO. Who does that? NOONE that was completely innocent of a thing would do that...
    His actions tell it all, I'm not saying they didn't get in a fight, not saying Gabby didnt maybe punch him a few times and he lost his temper and hit her back causing her to be terribly hurt, got mad and maybe strangled her to death, but here lies the problem, I don't care how it happened, he had a choice to say OMG, what have I done and go get help, carry her back to the van and haul butt to the nearest help he could find.
    Yet instead he fled the scene, jumped on her van and drove home to mommy and daddy and never said a word, he was able to go on at that house while she lay out in the middle of the woods decomposing and still not say a word.
    So no matter what happened, no matter what went down....the guilt is on himhim and only him, IMO!!

    I think if you’re trying to get away from someone you’re having an argument with and you’re in public, it would make sense to try and lock yourself in somewhere, no? I say that because more than one person found the argument concerning enough to call police, so maybe the van was the only place to be where he could roll the windows up and calm himself down and give herself time to calm herself down? We won’t know until and unless he decides to show up and talk.

    Agreed we truly don't know his capabilities, not many these days are skilled enough to last in the wild for months, especially with presumably no contact to civilization as an avoidance tactic on BL's part, if hes not dead he will be forced out soon IMO.

    I said elsewhere that maybe this was similar to the confrontation in Utah. Maybe they were arguing, she slapped/smacked at him and he pushed her away but too hard this time. She could could have fallen and hit her head, etc...

    The area she was found is certainly not remote and not really secluded either.

    Something often overlooked are commercial cruises. Yep, I'm talking about those COVID-crawling, unlimited-daiquiri vacation cruise ships. You can buy tickets last-minute. Like, day-of.

    As far as I am aware, the "No-Fly" list doesn't automatically translate to a "No-Sail" list (although I do not think BL would be on either in early September, all things considered with the way this played out).

    Recreational cruises stop in lots of different places and countries, and SO many leave right out of Florida. You can board as an ordinary passenger, disembark at any port on the schedule, and not return to the ship. It's totally up to you to return or not. People "miss ships" all the time and have to find their way back -- often with a flight or whatever. So not getting back on a ship in time isn't immediately strange or suspicious. It happens.

    I googled it, and there are limited cruises leaving from Miami/Port Everglades. Right now.

    Yes absolutely true. I should have said "and family". Thank you.
