    Hypothetically speaking, his parents could be very wealthy.
    You never know!! The old "dont judge a book by it's cover" might apply here. MOO

    This news of Gabby being found is so, so sad but I am relieved that her parent's don't have to endure, weeks, months or years of wondering where she is.

    I can't stop comparing this case to that of little Gannon Stauch in Colorado and can't help but wonder why LE is so ready to put in so many resources to searching for the missing persons in both of these cases , but doesn't utilize resources to put surveillance on the last person who was known to be with the missing person, especially when the person either won't talk (or in Gannon's case, his mom wouldn't face the camera for her interview.)

    In Gannon's case, his stepmom managed to transport his body across several states within days of his murder. The red flags were there in the beginning in both of these cases.....especially since BL wouldn't assist LE with a timeline or disclose ANY info regarding where he saw her last.

    As soon as Gabby was reported as missing, wouldn't LE have been alerted to the dv incident in Utah? Couldn't that have been enough to get surveillance on him? ( I am not familiar enough with US laws to know the answer to this.)

    Has anyone seen anything mentioned on whether or not they had one or two sets of keys to the van with them?

    Thinking out loud here....just because there are so many missing pieces of info on who has actually saw BL in person since he apparently returend home.
    Could the parents have had the van towed to Florida? Maybe BL never even went home.

    JMO and speculation

    A 2K camera picks up more detail than our natural eyesight, and it was for a split second a hundred yards or so away, while one of them was focused on driving and both of them keeping their eyes out for somewhere to camp.

    Not saying it definitely happened but the raw 2K footage, when slowed down, is pretty convincing IMO.

    i have only ever found his Instagram through Gabby’s. I’ve never just googled it. I checked and double checked. Unless somebody hacked her account, linked the fake page, and that’s how I found it I believe it was his. I deleted my comment and I’m letting it go but I’m an avid, every day Instagram user and am generally social media savvy. But either way I suppose it doesn’t matter.

    I hope you're right but wouldn't a SWAT team show up if he was refusing to leave the shed, camper, or home or had weapon-making threats?

    That's what confuses me, when LE knocked they should have said: "Sorry he is an adult we need to talk to him."
    Then BL could have handed LE the attorney's info, also they would have seen him at the house to confirm he was there. Right now, no one can confirm BL was in FL on Sept 1st or Sept 11th.
    Only the parents word he returned, correct?
    Maybe BL never returned someone else returned/drove the van back to he did indeed return the van and eft immediately afterward.

    I have to think GP was running away from him, and he ran her down. I can't see him hefting a body two football fields away.

    He’s long gone killing Gabby wasn’t going to stop his traveling. With mask mandates and disguising himself he will probably never be captured.

    I think with him being from Florida the swamplands is the last place he would go to hide.
     
  12. Or maybe his last will and testament? LOL If he's tending to routine business at a time like this, the guy's got nerves of steel.

    Didn't the FBI take over the case a while ago? Given that the possible crimes occurred in another state, shouldn't the FBI have kept an eye on Brian Laundrie? He wasn't a potential suspect in Florida crime, was he?

    I just watched the video again. The door closing is very obvious.

    Are you looking under stories? The circles at the top of the page. One is labeled "green". I just looked like three times and it's there.

    Well, you wouldn't have guns drawn and a ballistics shield if you were just looking through normal garden shed evidence?
    They HAD to have been expecting a person. A dangerous one too.
    Which means that BL's parents have told the FBI they have no idea where he is.....so the FBI suspect he might still be hiding out at home, hence the guns and shield.

    Thanks for posting the photo! I hope this clears up confusion now that this was a recent photo he posted. It is definitely his account it's just an old photo.

    No. They wouldn't have been close enough at that point to see plates. They would have to be closer. If you watch the video of him showing it opening, that is 100% happening. He zoomed in from afar though.

    If reporters and camera crews were camped out on my front lawn, I would most likely wake up and get dressed.

    Hmmm that only applies though if we find out they did NOT help BL go into hiding. As soon as their son got home without his girlfriend that went with him, they should have alerted someone. Instead they want to hide behind their lawyer saying “no comment” and “we’re praying for her family”. If they are helping him, then they’re just as guilty as he is. MOO
