    My thoughts on body cam video, 911 call.

    It appears Gabby was desperately trying to have the relationship of her dreams. If only she could change, do something better, she would succeed.

    Brian, on the other hand, watched Gabby get all the blame for their issues. By not being held accountable for his actions, this teaches him he might either be not guilty or he is immune from consequences. This can be emboldening.

    As a mother, one of the hardest lessons I learned was not making excuses for bad behavior. Yes, even when suicide was threatened as a likely way to avoid trouble. After scooping up the suicidal child and getting them in a safe place, we, with psychiatric help, worked at teaching that actions have consequences. As the child learned how to handle emotions and control behavior, a sense of mastery and confidence grew.

    It appears that BL never learned these lessons, from parents, and Gabby paid the price after being isolated and convinced that their relationship problems were solely on her shoulders.

    MOO.

    Horses are used for all kinds of activities in the Jackson area where we'd be used to walking! It's partly about scale, partly tradition, partly practicality. IMO. I once had a budget (i.e. mice running all around the cabin at night) dude ranch vacation in an adjacent valley that was work-a-day, not grand like the Tetons. Horses were for everything in the whole valley, as far as I could tell.

    Also, there are SAR trained for horseback.

    Consider, in this case, where they're looking for evidence of a missing person. A person on a horse has a bigger visual than someone on foot, not just towards the ground, but also context, and the ability to easily see over to the next horse and rider in the grid search line. The latter would mean fewer personnel were necessary. There is less risk of injury or getting bogged down in silt, sand, pebbles, thorns, brush, stones..... Horses can go longer and further in this vast terrain...

    Wonder what they're looking for besides the families' electronics/phones/gps from vehicles ?
    Here's a thought : Anything like recent shaves or hair dyes (old photo from IG shows he's not adverse to coloring)?
    As in a disguise for Brian ?
    If they can't find him -- would he wear a wig ?
    Is there going to be evidence that he was never in the swamp ?
    Any other thoughts ?
    Imo.

    There was one there or at least a park police officer. Talked to her a long time. There is nothing they could have done short of locking them both up forever to prevent what happened later. GP was dead set on staying with BP. When the facts come out, I expect there will be a witness that says GP stayed in the same hotel with him that night. Maybe camera footage of the Van in the parking lot.

    Question: How many still think suicide is a possibility after all we know, including this 911 call released today?

    There is absolutely NO evidence to support this assertion and with the release of the 911 call today, it is increasingly clear that Gabby was a victim and BL was her abuser.

    Getting in to Mexico is easy-peasy. They don't check anything...come on in and spend those American dollars! Canada is a whole other story. As such, and because of proximity, my guess is he bolted to Mexico. Does anyone know if he speaks Spanish? If so, then that seals it in my mind.

    Amateur opinion and speculation

    Because she stated it in the body cam footage. And also this is how it works when one’s soul has been crushed by abuse. The abuser has convinced them they can’t survive on their own and that no one else would put up with them.

    I thought it was something cloth folded up like a towel IMO because of how it kind of forms to the shape of the rocks. Not sure a book would do that? Maybe?

    1st post re this I've been following it for a few days. As to subtle signs to this guys potential criminal mind I suggest you look at his instagram posts. There are some seriously disturbing posts he has made around a year ago. I hope LE picks up on this. JMO.

    If I am not mistaken, the police officer on the video says that Gabby reporting that SHE hit HIM (& not the other way around) was confirmed by the witness. So, did the PD not have the appropriate info from the 911 call? Or, was this a crappy response to that call by the PD?
