    They want it to be official. They may think this is legally required, but I wonder -

    I am sure there is cash around. They had two months more planned. Even camping, its not cheap to stay on the road. It would be around $73 in gas from Moab to Jackson.

    I assume they have a joint bank account for the trip, which he probably cleared out.

    I don't see him staying on the run regardless of how much cash. It will always run out. If he's alive, he will probably spiral down to some theft and be caught or be spotted at a Walmart. If he's living homeless, the cash will be stolen.

    The FBI can search flight manifests for past flights and would know if he had flown and where to focus their search efforts.

    Another thing that hasn’t had much clarification that does matter is the story of him flying back to Florida to move stuff from a storage unit. Did he in fact do this? Was it Gabbys stuff? Did his parents know this and/or help? What was their understanding of why he did this if it happened?

    <modsnip - no link for statement of fact>

    Do you often kill people when you are full of emotion?

    LE has referred to “suspects” not POI in missing persons cases with no body… so the wording the media is using as far as POI still is odd. There’s just so much about this case that is not following the norm in investigations, it’s frustrating lol

    As a hiker and a hike leader, I have a saying that "Simple is fast." If there's a choice of walking on the side of a road/on an established trail on the one hand and bushwhacking (making your way through terrain with no trail) on the other, walking by the road or on the established trail will be much faster, even if that route is a bit longer than going as the crow flies.

    Even if you don't get lost bushwhacking, you may have to make unexpected detours such as when you have to navigate around obstacles such as creeks crossing your path. Even if you're walking in a river valley, you may have to deal with crossing streams emptying into that river or areas where the river bank isn't wide enough to be passable.

    Caveats: Some main roads are unpleasant or dangerous to walk next to. I don't know whether there was a path paralleling the road or going from the Spread Creek area towards Colter Bay Village. And if BL was trying to avoid detection as he went north, he might've avoided the road.

    I am afraid it will take time. I assume they may have an initial cause to issue a murder arrest warrant.

    He may have lied to his parents. They may have thought that he really was at the preserve.

    Putting together what her friend Rose & her dad have said & what can be observed on the video, one scenario that seems possible is that him hitting her that day was an escalation from emotional & psychological abuse to physical abuse. She does immediately blame herself for being "mean" to him & being OCD & for "getting frustrated," but she also has the wherewithal to tell LE that BL had been dissing/being dismissive of her & that he was a "downer." She also was able to tell LE that no, she had not grabbed the steering wheel from him,though she knew that's what BL told them.

    What she seemed as much as anything was in shock, imo, which would make one kind of sense if he had escalated for the first time into physical violence and yet instead of helping her, LE is accusing her of violence.

    I'm unwilling to disregard the possibility she had considerable agency going forward. That she sent BL packing to give her time alone to think about whether or not she wanted to stay with him after that assault, and that the reason why she's dead us because she decided she didn't want to stay with him and told him so.

    BREAKING: The Laundrie Family attorney has just canceled his press conference which was supposed to be held Tuesday at 1pm. He says he made the decision after speaking with the FBI tonight.

    Wild about the Laundrie presser being canceled. Here’s what’s also wild. @ChrisCuomo reported tonight that Laundrie attorney told him they DID report Brian didn’t come home last Tuesday to “authorities” on Tuesday. @NorthPortPolice told Cuomo it wasn’t reported to them…. So who?

    Dispersed camping is camping without amenities- pit toilet, potable water,camp host, permits, etc and usually a distance from other camp sites. Anytime I’ve dispersed camped I haven’t come upon others or had them come upon me so I can’t speak to that aspect.

    That may be why some people have a large camper and another drives a smaller car or truck behind them.
