    Watching the WFLA footage, I see the mustang in the driveway. The photo I’ve seen of Gabby’s van after the road trip ended show it in a garage with white walls and the caption states, “Gabby’s van pictured at BL’s parents house in Florida.” (Obviously I paraphrased that caption). I’d find it interesting if that van was parked in their garage but the mustang is parked outside. It would seem like they were hoping to keep it hidden. Does anyone know if they had it parked outside or in the garage? If I only had the ability to put one car in the garage it wouldn’t be a van, it would be the mustang since it’s a convertible.

    i thought Joseph Scott Morgan and Sheryl McCollum provided some interesting insights in to how this case might be progressing and what the next steps will be

    its on youtube if anyone wants to watch it

    Thanks good clarification, i thought for a moment it was their Electronic Evidence Management for collecting digital evidence, copying files or removing stuff but thanks

    Why don't we let it play out and see?
    There is no point in speculating on evidence procured because they have not told us what it is and FBI will not tell us either.

    But they have Gabby's remains to the best of our knowledge.
    That is the best evidence they could have.
    The dead do 'talk'.

    He can try. But I think he's going to find it difficult to "hide" anywhere. Especially in his usual comfort places. The outdoors is big but also full of people recreating. This case has had tremendous reach among that community AND people in that community are fiercely protective of each other. There's a sort of code among outdoor types. You always check out other people while you're out and offer assistance and never just pass someone by if you sense they need help, that sort of thing. He is not going to find ANY sympathy outside the family/friends who are aiding him (caveat-if they are but IMO they ARE or DID).

    My gut is saying BL was never in the house unless it was fleeting (no one knew to look for him for quite awhile, so yes, it’s possible he was there). He could have met one of his parents when he arrived in FL and turned over the van for them to drive home. I think he would have been too nervous to stay there any length of time.

    Have there been reports that neighbors’ video surveillance picked him up?

    I do think his parents have known where he is the entire time.

    ok, what is that about? for their own people? Negotiations? What? I am clueless.
    Honestly, I don't believe it was. I saw it on his story yesterday.

    The fact that the parents went to the lengths to hire their child an attorney but the attorney they hired wasn't some hard core criminal defense attorney from Florida tells me that what he told his parents was that he left her alive. If they believed their son had done her harm or he told them that, I think their choice of attorney would have been much different.

    Is it known whether or not their attorney is with them?

    I have to agree with you. I totally understand there wasn’t evidence of a crime prior to finding Gabby but the NPPD really dropped the ball by not keeping their eyes on BL last week. They said they were & he was at home when in reality, they didn’t have a clue about his whereabouts. Completely dropped the ball.

    I’m not understanding these possible “negotiations”.
    If he is innocent of a crime, then there’s no need to negotiate. If he is guilty of a crime, find him and give him the death penalty. Period. No negotiating with a murderer.

    My 27 year old daughter knows I am a Websleuths lifer and said pretty much the same thing.
    “There should be an exemption to the law that says the last person to be seen with someone can’t do this!” (Lawyer up so quickly).
    Such a sheltered, well-loved life my daughter has lived.
    Thank you for saying this.

    If you blow up the still image of this it looks to me like someone in a gray hoodie is standing up against the driver side of the van doors. I noticed that on another shot of this same video. It looks like someone covering their head with another tan hoodie under the gray hoodie was on the outer side of the driver window in a hiding position.

    Where else could he be? I don’t see him crossing USAs borders without being noticed by multiple people / cameras, etc.

    Even on a normal day, but especially now with Covid restrictions / protocols in place everywhere. At least I assume Canada is still enforcing theirs and I know for a fact you can’t air travel without negative tests or vaccine proof.

    I think last night as soon as they found her in Wyoming the FBI and US Attorney in WY took over the case, put together the warrants, and flew people out to Florida (along with Florida FBI) to run the show.

    We have been hearing lots of excuses from NPPD but I don't think they will have a say in what happens anymore. And I am sure behind the scenes it is tense. Losing the primary suspect is unbelievable. If they confirmed last Tuesday that he was not at the house, they may have proceeded differently right away.
