    I watched an interview with a mom whose child was murdered after being kidnapped. She looked directly into the camera and said “scare your kids, tell them the truth about the dangers out there”. I’ll never forget it.

    I disagree with you. The area body was located in was a large wash of rocks, gravel, silt, a creek and small channels. It was not a mirror flat piece of ground where you could have seen a twig or a small rock. The contour was very irregular and the site with disturbed earth was on the opposite side of the main creek channel, I believe. There was also no gravel road that went directly passed the site, rather it was areas of rock and gravel such that the searchers were on horseback, not on vehicles.

    The area was not exactly "full of campers" as if they were side by side and walking all over the place. It was a dispersed campground and the van was actually parked west of where most of the vehicles would be. But you might have had 20 vehicles in the entire dispersed area, mostly all concentrated farther east.

    The terrain was partially flat, but low sagebrush scrub and small deciduous and conifer trees were beside the wash area, and there were rocks even in the flat places that would have been the floodplain of Spread Creek.

    I live in an area with this kind of terrain, similar streambeds and washes and it is not as you think it is.

    IMO - FBI don't stage a raid and declare a "crime scene" at the boyfriends house for someone that harmed themselves or an accidental death.

    I respect many of those who follow/subscribe to GH but I think there are a few on YT who have much more advanced analysis of crime footage these days AND have much, much better commentary (or limit commentary to only explanation of footage analysis). A few days ago, while reviewing the Moab police transcript, specifically the part about Gabby climbing through the driver's window of the van, GH said, "... everybody's known somebody when they drink that gets crazy like that...". Suggesting she was crazy or behaving as if she was under the influence of alcohol, well... I found it shameful. Gabby was afraid BL was abandoning her (he locked her out of the van and was driving away - and this van was her temporary "home" while on the road). Yes, climbing through the window was risky, but imo Gabby had moxie... this was her transportation home which was at least 2000 miles away.

    I'm glad WS allowed the other analysis of the Bethune video.

    True. I have no idea what time this all went down, I was thinking very early. The caution tape went up last night, so maybe they knew something was about to happen.

    My confusion about this is if the police saw the car and left a note why didn’t they run the freaking tags and see it was his?!

    I agree that the goal of putting the van in the garage was concealment. I wonder if neighbors have video of the van being put into the garage?

    I think so. If a crime has been committed and they helped, they could be in trouble.

    I think this is what happened as well. Doesn't seem like they pulled over for some site seeing at that spot. They pulled over because they were fighting. She was done and ran away. He went after her.

    Or they just didn't realize they needed a criminal attorney.

    I know people still use WU, but aren’t there faster, easier ways to send money to someone? Or is this so they’ll have cash right away?

    You wouldn’t be able to read the plates from the distance they’re at when the door closes IMO.

    Unbelievable to me that the Laundries could have been so involved with Gabby. That she LIVED with them those years, and they would not insist on someone notifying her family that she was left behind in trip. …Unless BL told them something damned incriminating and deadly to him.

    If he was really hoping to get away with this, the sensible thing would have been to put her in the driver's seat and slide the van down a boat ramp somewhere, leave all his stuff in the car, and then just disappear. He wasn't thinking like a criminal mastermind however. He drove her car back to his house. He (IMO) was going to talk to police but his parents (IMO) convinced him to speak to a lawyer first who advised him to shut-up and wait. I don't think this guy is a closet serial killer, he is an abusive A-*&^%% and he lost it and did something he can never take back and now a person is dead and lives are destroyed.

    In the Mollie Tibbetts trial they went through the whole trial essentially trying to create doubt in the state's evidence. They tried to get their client's confession suppressed. Then at trial, the defendant took the stand and essentially said gang members in sweaters (in July) did it. It didn't work out too well for him as he's spending the rest of his life in jail.
