    So he said nothing about suspicions that DL had abused his daughter before, or that it looked like she had been abused that day? But what he said does suggest she likely wouldn't have told him if that's what was going on.

    Do we know if they still have the storage unit? I have heard of people living in those. I assume if they still had it, it would have been checked?

    Here's a picture from his insta showing his hair. It was posted as a throwback pick in 2020 so it must be old.

    I'm wondering if perhaps he held her under water & drowned her in the creek. Would the ME be able to pick up on that given the time between her death & now & the condition of her body? I'm hoping there's enough forensic evidence to determine the cause of death. I 100% believe he killed her, he's been & is on the run & now in hiding. And I wouldn't be surprised if a 3rd party is helping him. He needs food, shelter, $. He can't last forever without help. I don't think he's dead or his parents would be way more frantic... kinda like Gabby's (sarcasm). Perhaps in time he may off himself but now... nah. RIP lil one. :(

    The event data recorder in this vehicle is designed to record such data as: • How various systems in the vehicle were operating; • Whether or not the driver and passenger safety belts were buckled/fastened; • How far (if at all) the driver was depressing the accelerator and/or the brake pedal; and • How fast the vehicle was traveling; and • Where the driver was positioning the steering wheel.

    Most EDR's only activate in the case of a serious crash... but I'm not certain if that's the case here. Also, Note that the above is for the 2017 model year.

    Did anyone check for a passport? I know someone who passed over at Nogales - no check at all.

    Not that I think BL did this. But it is possible.

    My guess would be that the Mustang was before the awakening!

    I feel so bad for all the cops and reporters and agents having to be outside in this heat. It’s hot plus the humidity and ugh it’s miserable. I live here in FL and I barely can stand outside for 2 min before I’m sweating.

    This doesnt make sense, the return of the vehicle is what started her families suspicion. It would have been better to pretend they were still travelling, when really he took the van to Mexico alone, where he could live in and survive with very little funds. Why bring the van back to Florida? He could have pretended to send texts for at least a week or two whilst he disappeared. If they were smart enough to distract the cops with a potential rouse that he's missing whilst hiking, they are smart enough to help him disappear before her family were suspicious

    There are some floating around online. Maybe they're older and she didn't wear it on this trip? She had a light gray or white band.

    Your response sparked an interesting thought: what items were in the white van when the FBI searched it on 9/10-9/11?

    1) IMO..Most likely not much left after he returned.
    2) Did anyone in neighborhood see him emptying the van between 9/1 and 9/10? Did anyone see him period? Did his parents empty it?
    3) On 9/20, what items will the FBI find that were in the van on the trip in Wyoming?
    4) Did BL empty the white van in his driveway and store these items in the shed out back?
    5) Did BL dispose of most items like the tent, mattress, pillows etc.. before he returned to FLorida?

    My apologies as the topic is off limits.
    -----------------
    I believe he was extremely jealous of his beautiful, talented gf. He didn't support her efforts to grow her business beyond even her wildest dreams. (She said as much when LEOs pulled them over.) Gabby had 3 times the IG followers than he did.

    If they use the Berla technology on the vehicles they may see photos, contacts, texts, etc from any phone connected to the vehicle via USB, BlueTooth or wireless technology as well.

    I'm late to this thread (sorry!), but after scanning 20 pages or so I can't seem to find any real viable theories, I guess there isn't much to go off of.

    That said, I did watch the video, <modsnip> She admits she suffers from OCD, and also that she hit the guy. I realize those are small things, but some people really do lose control a bit when in a fight and start hitting and screaming and stuff. He seems pretty calm in the face of police being around.

    I had a girlfriend when I was 27 years old, and she was really unstable. I came to a point where I wanted to end up, and was making a plan to do so (you have to be careful when ending a relationship with someone unstable). But one night we were at a party having a bunch of drinks and I just hit my breaking point. After we left the party, I just decided to get it over with and told her I was really done and I didn't want it any more. Of course now that I'm 44, I wished I would have handled that with a bit more empathy, but I was just tired of all the **** and wanted it to be done. After I broke up with her she promptly threw herself into a river and was swept downstream. I looked for her for about 5 minutes, but realized it was a scary situation and she could be really hurt.

    I flagged down a passing police car and told them the story, after which they promptly put me in the back of the car and we drove around looking for her. I immediately sensed I was a person of interest, and now possibly in some trouble because they assumed I had tossed her into the river or something. Thankfully for me (and her) we saw her come out of the river downstream after looking for 20-30 minutes. The cops approached her to find out what really happened (which is exactly what I said), and basically had a meltdown with the cops and started punching and screaming at them. In the end I was released that night since my story checked out, and she was involuntarily committed to the psych ward that night. Of course, we stayed broken up.

    I'm not saying any of that happened, and he's been extremely shady so far, especially with not talking to the police and disappearing. But maybe he just had enough of her and decided to leave, and in the midst of a breakup, she had a breakdown and either threatened to hurt herself or ran away from him. In that case maybe what he's feeling now is immense guilt and shame that he didn't go looking for her (which is what I would have felt had my ex not come out of that river and I didn't flag down that cop). In this is this day and age when young people especially become so tied to an online persona, especially when it shows them happy and golucky and travelling that a breakup now is such a larger deal since it means the end of that life and being in the spotlight.

    Of course, I know in these situations the guy probably did end up hurting her, but just want to present an alternate theory based on some of my own life experiences that almost got me into a load of legal trouble (i.e. if she hadn't stepped out of the water at some point and attacked the cops, I could have been in real trouble, even though I didn't do anything).
