    Most people take their phones everywhere so if BL did take off, and GP was sad and someone tried to console her. She probably would have taken her phone with her. So whoever hurt her could have had it and them mistaking Yosemite for Yellowstone even more likely. I don't want to give BL any more alibis but I would hate to find out that he hurt himself and he was innocent. Can you imagine how much that would compound this tragedy? I know it's stretch.

    Based on the police dash cam video, I wondered if it was possible he ultimately hit her with the van. She was crying about how she was afraid he would drive off and abandon her. Maybe they fought, he tried abandon her and drive off and she chased after the van. He either hits her as she stands in front of the van or he puts the van in reverse to do it.

    More than likely though, it was strangulation. One, because that's how many men kill their partners in domestic violence situations when they don't have a gun or knife. Two, she said in the dash cam video he put his hands on her face. I think she phrased it that way to protect him. I think he had his hands around her neck and thats why she scratched his face and was crying hysterically after the fact. Maybe she tried to break up after that whole ordeal and he decided to finish what he started.

    All in all, I'm pretty down about all this. I had hoped she would be found alive even though I knew it was unlikely. She had so much life left to live.

    Sorry, but the trails south of Springer and north of Katahdin are not considered the AT. I don’t know anyone who’s been on the AT who thinks of them as AT, and, since I was a thruhiker and lived on the AT for 6 months, I know. Even the trail you hike to GET to the Springer start is not called the AT; it’s called the Approach Trail.
    If DL was hiking in FL and claiming he was on the AT, he’s trying to pull the wool over someone’s eyes. IMO we’ll find more instances of this the more we learn in the next few days.

    Okay folks, we're closing up for the night so y'all can get some rest. (See what I did there, right?) ;)

    Please continue here at Thread #17 (which will remain locked overnight).

    Good Night everyone. Check back in the morning.
