    Was it mentioned what the wifi status was for the area where she was found? Someone in a previous thread was very descriptive about the area that she was found. Is there anything else there? Sights to be seen? It doesn't look remarkably scenic. Is this a place they would have set up their tent? Was the distance she was found too far to have gone to use the bathroom if she wanted privacy? Is it possible that he did leave alone for a day or two? Maybe 27-28? When he was picked up his pack was empty but it could have been full when he started out. All speculation and questions which help me make logical deductions.
    Thanks!

    Can they bug their land phone if they have one? Can they bug their house without telling them?

    Apologies in advance if this has been asked/answered. Did FBI take over the Florida (NP) investigation after the discovery of the body in WY or before? I hate to fault LE but the video of the FBI today just looks faster, more efficient, etc. They look prepared, covered all exits, got trespassers off the property. They seem to be moving methodically. Is this due to them having more leeway now that a body has been found and it’s federal jurisdiction?

    How could she die of the elements in that spot? It never got below freezing, it was not hot, there was water nearby (at the creek) and tons of people in the dispersed camping. The access road near her body is only a few feet away, all she had to do was follow it to the main road into the campground - and people would have been within a mile (and cars going by occasionally).

    What I want to know is if he ever returned home. It's possible that someone flew to Jackson and drove the van back and Brian never re-entered FL. I am guessing that's one thing LE (especially FBI) wish to know from the search at the home. They better find some of the clothes we see Brian wearing on the trip.

    I also wonder if Gabby's things remained in the van or someone tossed them. Are Brian's beloved succulents now in his room at home?

    The most likely scenario is that he did drive home (hardly stopping) or the family is obscuring the timeline in a major way. If they're doing that, I do wonder how long he was at the house - to my knowledge, no one has seen him in FL.

    Yes, I'm aware I noted earlier in the thread I'm Canadian.

    So is this the caller the officers never made contact with when they attempted to call the two people who reported the incidents back? This kinda contradicts with the inspection of her face in my opinion.

    Has it been confirmed that he police actually SAW BL when they went to speak the family the first time (when the family only gave them lawyer info)? Cause he could have been long gone before Gabby was even reported missing if police didn't actually see him. (sorry if this is a repeat question, these threads are flying!)

    I'm sick to my stomach hearing that. Caller was imperative that she was being hit. And more than one time during that altercation.

    Besides knowing that BL returned to Florida to move things in/out of storage, do we know anything else about what he did during that time in Florida? Was the trip pre-planned or was it a random trip that he took for a specific reason? It happened right after the police incident on 8/12 where they had been fighting and right before GP's last sighting so it seems really important to trying to figure out what happened.

    Great point.

    Apologize if this has been answered but do we know the approximate distance between the van location in this video and the location of the unfortunate discovery of the body yesterday?

    Saw this ( like so many others) in the video when she was self blaming and moving her hand - body English and his masterful behavior with the cops, so mad and sad

    Not in Florida. You must tell the other party.

    I feel sorry for the LEO’s who stopped them when they were arguing. Towards the end, two of them were discussing what to do and one said to the other something along the lines of “it’s your call, I will support you in whatever you decide”. They decided to put him in a hotel and leave her with the van, to separate them for the night instead of putting her in jail. During the journey in the LEO’s car to the hotel, I think he would have thought that BL seemed very plausible, sensible even. Imagine how they feel now, I feel sorry for them and think they handled the situation well. Can someone confirm, where the white van is parked at the side of the road (spotted on camera and reported by the people who were passing it), how far is that from where G’s body was found?
