    Whats everyones thoughts about the door of the van closing as seen on the youtube sighting?
    It also looks like someone is slouched in the front of the van...
    My theory from this is that i think it could be Gabby in the front of the van already passed, and BL is in the back preparing himself to move her body or hiding in the back as he could hear or see another vehicle incoming. His thought may of been that if anyone does see Gabby in the front of the van it will just look like she is sleeping?

    exactly, so most likely they know he is in those wods, at this point they should ask the Laundries for the deed to that house case they might be lying about it even being theirs at this point.

    Well, yes, hence why I said it's the NY Post. They're gonna sensationalize it. :) And yet it was so satisfying to read.

    I know some people upthread have written against the slamming of BL's parents. You can say what you will about 5A, but come on - that girl lived with them, she was going to be their DIL. Whatever he told them, they knew when BL came home ALONE on 9/1 that Gabby wasn't with him. Not even a thought to call her mom? No, instead, ignoring NS (Nichole Schmidt, the mom)'s texts. It's just gross and I'm not above wanting to see some comeuppance.

    We don't know this whole story just yet. The whole interaction hitchhiking (which I do believe was him) makes no sense at all. Ends up in Coulter bay and asks to go to Jackson, offers $200 to get there, but doesn't really want to go to Jackson and gets out at the dam which does make some sense since we now know where the van was (most likely). Was he hoping someone would find her while he was gone and bingo- I got an alibi?

    Attention now is on finding this ***

    I don’t post much but do read and try to keep up. Which is made more difficult when the majority of posts are an ongoing debate about van door open or closed! Is it possible to just agree to disagree on this subject? Please.

    Wow, FBI not fooling around with BL's family the way local police did. While the search of the house is going on the parents had to sit in a van in the driveway - poetic justice in a way. Of course now there is a dead body and a crime scene to go along with the timeline. His parents are probably scared, as they should be. They aided and abetted by not letting anyone know that Gabby was missing for days and days. If it turns out they never liked Gabby in the first place, I will not be surprised! Just my opinion only.

    I am a parent, I love my kids more than my own life, and like your parents, I would march my child into a police station in a heartbeat if they committed murder. There are definitely parents of murderers who did the same. I'm thinking specifically of Austin Sigg's mother, Mindy.

    On the other hand, we've seen families like the Watts who will protect and excuse their son and blame and defame the victim until the end of time. So, there are both kinds of families out there.

    Yeah it’s a euphemism. I mean, it can be both. But really LE sort of stopped calling suspects, “suspects” because it triggers certain things, like putting the suspect on the defensive and also causing any questioning to be subject to Miranda, etc.

    So they use POI much more these days.

    I lived with an abuser for 8 years, so glad I survived this could have been me for sure. I could relate to the traffic stop scene, when she wanted to tell the police what he did, but just couldn't. Lots of reasons, she wanted the relationship to work out so badly, she was in fear for her life, she would have been left there to figure out what to do next. He did not take his eyes off of her for one second, because he was afraid she would tell on him. Wolf in sheeps clothing. I think he is on the run.

    That would mean someone else drove/towed/hauled the van there? Anything seems possible in this case.

    They give you a harder time with just a DL, but they’ll let you back in with one.

    Yes. Plenty of ways legal and illegal. I live 2 hours from the Mexico border. Granted I steer clear of Mexico. Used to be there were safe places to go. Now, not so much.

    The video I saw shows a different angle of the van and it honestly looks like a pillow, not a person.

    Re his succulent friends: Earlier today when the news was focused on the house I saw a plant stand right in front of the front door. I wonder if those are his plants.
