    If you're talking about the group of people a few feet away from the canopy, they wouldn't hover over a crime scene like that, forever contaminating potential evidence.

    In the 3rd video on this page, at about 1:10 into it, you can get an HD view under the canopy plus the area where the men were standing. There's nothing there. However, they walk off toward where I believe the body is, off camera.

    Human remains discovered 'consistent' with description of Gabby Petito

    As a previous comment said, he may have been fleeing and decided to return to get the van.

    or,

    He may have taken a hike and then hitchhiked for a alibi, planned on returning to the van and "finding her missing and dead". Freaked and left for Florida instead.

    I just noticed in this video, before it starts & she’s sitting in the car, her arm just above the elbow is really red & looks maybe scraped. If you enlarge it & look before you press play. :(

    Again to be clear, I think he killed her and ran home, and that my scenario had plenty of holes. But concerning the August 30th text to GP's mom. Sometimes my wife doesn't receive a text I send her until the next day. Its weird. I have sat beside her when her phone dinged and seen my day old text pop up. I can easily see a text getting hung up in an area with spotty reception and being sent at a later time.

    The Yosemite/Yellowstone thing is a red herring IMO, often times these two parks are confused for one another due to their popularity and similar name (even as I was typing this I almost wrote "yellowsmite" lol).

    Remember this? Released Sept 14th.
    "This is an extremely difficult time for both the Petito family and the Laundrie family.
    "I understand that a search has been organized for Miss Petito in or near Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming. On behalf of the Laundrie family it is our hope that the search for Miss Petito is successful and that Miss Petito is re-united with her family.
    "On the advice of counsel the Laundrie family is remaining in the background at this juncture and will have no further comment."

    This is haunting now!!

    Don't think anyone would buy that, too much planning, traveling, evading. Maybe a self-defense lie though. Probably no plea deal now that Gabby has been found thank goodness. I think they fought, their fights were escalating, she tried to get away, and he strangled her (like another poster here, I didn't like the way he touched, grabbed and pushed Gabby under the chin area). Then used the tarp to drag her 200 yards from that road and left her in a shallow grave. He tried to cover his tracks with his parents help. And here we are.

    I think that he was trying to set up a lame alibi.

    Additionally in a social media story of her sliding down a sand dune there are notable bruises on her back and neck, its entirely possible she was being physically abused by BL.

    Definitely possible, but then mom did not feel it was GP sending the text. Didn't it say Yosemite when it should have said Yellowstone?

    Still wondering if the tent was in the van and if not, where is it?

    but many people consider other parts that extend it to be appendages. Like the section that goes into Canada.

    I just updated my post as follows:

    Edited to add: It has been pointed out that the terminus is in Georgia, but there's a trail system in Florida that connects to the AT. So on some maps you'll see it included as an extension.

    Thank you for the correction. I only watched it once and it was upsetting for me.

    Nope IMO, just toxic masculinity.

    I'm surprised LE didn't keep BL under surveillance. Don't they usually keep a close eye on a suspect?

    This is what makes me semiconsider he left her alive and well and found out something was amiss when he got back to Florida and her parents hadn't heard from her either. If they were prone to arguing, maybe her not contacting him and vice versa wasn't uncommon during a disagreement, so that didn't seem odd to him.

    it looked more than river stones and some dirt etc in the scene from the CNN helicopter... its hard to remember now See if you can find the canopy going up then look at the group of men just beyond it in a half circle.... and could be my memory and emotions but the helicopter person said we saw something that needed checking and didnt want to disturb it until it can get looked at. Not sure it they were talking about this area or the another spot

    I hope he does hop on the AT. The more he is around other people, the more chances he'll be caught.
