    Not true. 911 was called on BL's assault on her.

    Maybe. But it’s a pretty remarkable slip.
    Even if she had her grandpa in her phone by his first name he knew well enough to text her mother about him. IMO it seems to fit in with all the other oddly obvious things he’s done…

    - he came home in HER van without her (ballsy)
    - he fails to impersonate her via phone properly to her own mother
    - if he made the last IG post on her account it wasn’t in her styling
    - he sent a text to her mom about a location they were never going to (Yosemite)
    - he comes home and is silent
    - he didn’t try very hard to hide the body…
    - he turns off her phone the day he gets back


    Could be an amateur murderer, sure. But it could also be someone who wanted her to be found.

    It’s my understanding that they funded it themselves with money they saved. They lived with BL’s parents and, according to a media interview with a former co-worker, both worked at Publix. It appears as though Gabby was trying to build a #vanlife social media presence in order to earn money as well.

    Yeah, she was totally doing it to get attention…

    Awful take.

    Yes, her phone that he was trying to take.

    I don’t understand how that guy was able to get to that spot with the cross rocks. I thought the FBI said the area was to be blocked off…

    What time was the Aug 27th text?
    Maybe GP was still alive.
    It seems like GP & BL used her phone mostly. It might not have been unusual for BL to use GP's phone, especially if his is not working/ charging (seemed there was an issue with it). I know my kids and spouse do the same thing using my phone but use words/ names so the other person knows its not me and usually even knows which one of them it is.

    Not to mention, if it IS her final resting place, it's kinda tacky to mark it up.

    If it is NOT her final resting place, it's tacky to get fake internet points by pretending it is.

    I'm not a detective, nor do I play one on TV, but I would imagine that if you are a detective and you aren't actively trying to punch holes in your own case you're likely to get a beat down by the defense when it goes to trial.

    I think you're giving him too much credit for smarts. (I see no evidence of that... ) Is your point that he was trying to get caught/make it obvious that he was the perp?

    All of the things took time to happen. That's not really spontaneous. At any rate, it seems like if she is that terrified of him, the antagonistic nature of her actions would have registered at some point.

    The area has been blocked off since the search began there.

    It can't be the same exact area.

    We have a few clues to that now. She is dead and he is hiding.

    Are you seriously suggesting that Gabby was killed by an unknown assailant?

    Witness statements are notoriously unreliable. Add to it the fact that we’re not talking about yesterday, there has been some time that has gone by and with time memories can get fuzzy in regards to exact dates.
    From what I can tell, Brian and his parents scrubbed their social media at some point. Obviously IDK when, but it’s odd for not one of them to have some kind of presence outside of Pinterest.

    This is a great point.

    Average price of gas in the US is $ 3.23 per gallon.
    https://www.wkbw.com/news/gas-price...ear-high-averaging-3-23-per-gallon-in-buffalo

    Ford Transit 2012 had a 15.4 gallon tank. It averaged 23 mpg.
    Used 2012 Ford Transit Connect Specs & Features | Edmunds

    The drive from Jackson Hole to North Point FL is approx 2387 miles.
    Google Maps

    Doing the math the gas cost for that trip back to FL was approx. $500. (2387/23) x current price of gas $3,23.

    Who provided the $500 in gas money? Hopefully someone used a credit or debit card......

    We know the van entered North Port on 9/1 around 10AM from the affidavit. It was spotted by a license plate reader.

    We can't say for sure that BL was the driver at that moment.
