    I don't think the night in jail would have changed anything. They appear on surface to be a toxic couple unfortunately. I don't know if I can judge their relationship from the hour police video, but I think it's fair to say it was an unhealthy relationship no matter which one would set off the other one. She just happened to get 'caught' by someone who called 911 but that doesn't mean she was the aggressor every time...they could be both be aggressors in their own way.

    Or if bruises, black eye etc could perhaps be the reason for a week cooped up in a hotel room where nobody in the outside world can see.

    This is enraging.
    BL appeared to be the victim, but the 911 caller said that BL was slapping and hitting GP!
    Why didn't the officers who made the DV stop know that?
    Gabby's taking the blame for everything should have been a huge red flag.
    More training needed!

    And I have watched the bodycam video and while there were many things LE did properly, their misogyny about women and anxiety was repulsive.
    And yucking it up bro style with BL about anxious women is beyond the pale.

    Also is there in info about who, if anyone, Gabby called from the back of the cruiser?
    She said she was calling her parents, which I would assume would be her mother, but does anyone know who she called, or if she called anyone at all?
    Her dad has said he didn't know anything about it.

    I am very optimistic that they will be able to figure it out. While it had been about 3 weeks since she died, there should be some forensic evidence. It certainly wasn't environmental (heat) related. I believe there will be evidence of trauma on her body. They were close enough to other humans that silencing her quickly would have been paramount.

    It's true that a lot of forensic evidence would be gone, but strangling usually leaves evidence in the bones - and I think he probably did more than that.

    The term human remains is used for a dead body intact or not.

    The caller witnessed a scuffle. She admitted to assaulting him. He didn't offer that up until the cops started asking about his injuries. She denied he hit her. You can make that of that whatever you want, but he's still innocent in the eyes of the law, while she freely admitted to committing a crime.

    How would the van have ended up there, if he hadn't drove it home? He may have left as soon as he got home but I can't see his parents going to get her van.

    I'm sure I am missing it but where is the link for the whole 911 call?

    Feds are leaving BL's parents' house. Came out of house just now, got in cars, pulling out.

    ETA maybe just moving the cars out of the driveway? They're going back inside the house now...

    However, we must take into account that is in a remote area with many types of wildlife and there are often remains that can be scattered due to scavengers.

    Oh great. Now they’re putting up a tent so I can’t see anything

    edited to add. Totally unrelated imo

    I'm sure they wish they had had access to it too. But they didn't. They did not intimidate her. They asked her if she had been hit and she said no. She said she had hit him. He said she had hit him. From the info they had, he was the victim.

    Blaming LE for what happened or for not "saving" her from him is just plain wrong. The only person conceivably responsible for her death is BL.

    The guy in plain clothes (brown shirt, jeans) wasn't earlier (he is now), he was touching the white wall with no gloves. I wonder if it's evidence such as dumped bag or clothes, or surveillance that he dumped something there.

    An erected tent though suggests something gruesome
