    Good points, I didn't think about the fact that GP might have been there alone. That make sense, with no windows and a roof top fan it would be unbearably hot in a Wyoming sun. The door would have to be cracked to be comfortable at all. It would be typical to close the door when people passed.

    I assume the sandals where hers. She appeared to be trying to keep things clean and organized (I assume for personal preferences and the desire to be able to use images of the van insides). The sandals were left outside - typical of person keeping the interior clean.

    She reported he cut her face.
    They ignored the caller. And they ignored her.

    How many days were they at the Moonflower Cafe. I believe it is the same incident and it is disgraceful IMO.

    So the Laundrie’s lawyer is going to hold a press conference tomorrow from NY without the Laundrie family and without Brian. Interesting.

    I just watched. Not good! Unacceptable. Not sure if this was communicated to the officers? Not sure if the outcome would have changed or not but there was a breakdown somewhere.

    The 911 call says BL was hitting/slapping Gabby.

    I've been skimming the threads and see that BL could have run off to Cancun, Canada or maybe New York. I'll throw another one out there. How about Costa Rica? The US doesn't have an extradition agreement with CR.

    No. Just no.

    It is a dangerous misperception that "nothing can be done" for DV victims.

    And the psychological impact of not only being humiliatingly real-time victim blamed and told that you're the problem (and mentally ill) cannot be overstated.

    That incident showed her that she should avoid any contact with LE at all costs, because not only would he likely not be held responsible, but also that she would be held responsible and possibly be charged.

    Short of whatever abuse she was undergoing, that stop was one of the most dangerous things that happened to her in her too-short life. My heart breaks for her and for her family, and I hope that this will lead to a better -- not worse -- understanding of domestic violence and what can and should be done to assist victims.

    Joseph Petito Talks with Dr. Phil About His Daughter Gabby ihe.art/c8pEUgG

    Joseph Petito, father of Gabby Petito, talks with Dr. Phil about his daughter and the national story surrounding her disappearance. In the short clip, he talks about his relationship with Brian Laundrie, what he thought about her going on a road trip with him, and his thoughts on their engagement.

    It's unclear if the filming took place before or after authorities found the body on an individual matching the description of Gabby in Grand Teton National Park on Sunday. The full interview will be aired on CBS later today (September 20).

    Even though I responded to another report of this, I think everyone needs to hear this 911 call … it is heartbreaking and infuriating to say the least. How could this have all gone so wrong? Where was the miscommunication or was this a different 911 call? Regardless, this is inexcusable that Gabby was thought to be the aggressor! I knew when I watched the bodycam video that something was “off”, but we were told Gabby was the aggressor. I didn’t understand at the time how that could be true, and it was making me feel really uncomfortable watching how that questioning unfolded. I agree with others who feel angry, I am too!

    Absolutely. Why would he speed at 3X limit for 20 miles while having a snit fit and evading the law if she had slapped HIM. He was trying to get away from the eyewitness guy who had STOPPED and seen him slapping her.

    Reading between the lines (IE IMO) she was in the cafe finally uploading her work, it was slow going on an afternoon with shared WIFI, he was having a fit because it was his turn to go hiking and he had been twiddling his thumbs all day while she was at work trying to finance their trip, IMO he may have turned off her upload, told her she would never be a success. She says wait. I need to upload my work, he says, Then walk, I'm taking the car, and he starts hitting her when she objects. By the time he speeds away, thoroughly breaking several possible felony laws, they get pulled over. He adopts his manic-style babbling shmooze, while she is so upset she still is taking the blame for everything. Unfortunately he is right there for future punishment if she says the wrong thing. IMO

    That site is not well researched but interestingly enough it does state that Brian is a skilled craftsman, model and up and coming American television personality.

    Agreed - but then again I never thought she was.

    I assumed she was intact because they aren't searching for anything else. Or, are they still out in the area looking?

    For the exact reasons i said. LE gets it wrong often enough that I'm not going to take any chances. Especially if I'm a doofus that knows enough to know I'm not great at answering questions under those circumstances.
