    I think it’s Gabby’s former phone number, not her mother’s.

    So according to the search warrant, they know the van returned to North Port, FL on September 1, at approximately 10:26A.M. because it was clocked on a license plate reader on I-75. Does this necessarily prove that Brian was the driver? Would the video from the license plate reader show the occupants of the vehicle?

    From my understanding this is a warrant to search the contents of a hard drive that was already found inside the van, not a warrant to search an address FOR a hard drive. LE in many areas are not automatically permitted to access the contents of electronics. This warrant is for the files on a hard drive, not the parents' home being searched right now.

    No. This was a park ranger. If you look at the video, it is very clear because you can read her badge and her uniform is a different color. The police report lists the officers at the scene. No women.

    upload_2021-9-20_15-5-42.jpeg The area is a popular undeveloped boondocking site, where a hunter and at least two sets of travelers in the area reported sightings between Aug. 27 and Aug. 29 of Petito’s small, white 2012 Ford Transit van with Florida plates.

    The FBI is still requesting information from anybody who may have seen Petito, Laundrie or their van between Aug. 27 and Aug. 30. Tips and reports can be submitted to FBI - Tips, the main FBI tip line at 1-800-225-5324 or the Denver FBI Office at 303-629-7171.
    Petito investigation turns to cause of death and confirming identify of remains

    No - automatic number plate recognition cameras read the VRM of the vehicle and store it. There will be an image but generally they're not of great quality for that kind of identification since they are designed to read the plate.

    I think you bring a great point up. Also, this case and its twists and turns, nothing is or was as it seemed. We still can't make sense of it right now, and I think those officers (particularly the softer-spoken one whose camera footage was first released) tried the best with the (faulty) information that they had. They had to act within the scope of the law, and the scope of information they had and were given.

    I sincerely hope this stop is analyzed and addressed by academics and professionals in LE and psychology and DV and whatever else -- so similar signs can be identified and handled better from here on out.

    Well, it's like this, Gabby is dead.
    Now we do not have a Cause of Death or Manner of Death and as of now we do not actually know whether she was murdered or died of natural causes.

    That makes her a victim of murder or misadventure.
    We know today that a larger human, a male was seen 'slapping' her.
    It looked to me like he was winding her up- bringing about her hysterical state, pulling the rug from under her feet so she lost a sense of what was real and what was in her imagination.
    She could no longer tell.
    Probably had a huge sense of denial going on at the same time, cognitive dissonance- 'this can't be really happening' but it was- happening to her and happening to her dream career as well.
    She appeared to internalise it.
    Maybe she felt she could control it better that was- if it was all HER fault, she was, somehow, less of a victim, not a victim at all.. just a tad OCD-ish or whatever label was cast upon her at any given time. By her partner.

    I think she wanted to be happy. With him.
    RIP girl.
    Al of the above is merely my own opinion based on the bodycam vids, mostly.

    One thing that just sticks out to me - Gabby was missing for 10 days and the Laundrie's said nothing. Brian was missing three days and they report it. Hm.

    Would the license plate reader have been able to see who was driving the van on Sept. 1st?

    Park rangers are peace officers and have very
    Not to belabor the point, but Park Rangers are pretty much equal to LE. You can Google it and get lots of info about them.

    So does that mean that the park ranger stop is not related to the 911 call that relates to him chasing her down the sidewalk? Surely a 911 call would go to the police department, not to park rangers?

    I could be mistaken, but I believe the sole purpose of this search warrant was to be able to search the external hard drive found in the van. I assume there is a separate warrant that was issued today on the Laundrie home.
