Maybe. But it’s a pretty remarkable slip.I think it was just a slip up on his part. He's panicking, thinking of a thousand things, but in his own brain he calls the guy "Stan" instead of "Grandpa", so that leaked out...
Forgive me if I missed information on this. How or who financed this huge trip by 2 young people?
If a victim isn't going to spill the beans on their abuser because they would 'pay for it later', why would that victim, scratch, hit, leap through the window and create a public scene big enough for someone to call 911?
I realize they might be well-meaning, but I wish people wouldn't mark up the wilderness like that. It is disrespectful to others. This is a country with folks from many religions and private points of view, and this is land that belongs to everybody. In addition, many of our public lands were sacred sites belonging to Native Americans.
Marking public land with symbols is considered vandalism; rangers and volunteers have to spend a lot of energy removing them. I was at one campsite on Cape Cod where someone had carved crosses into about 10 trees on the site where I camped. The rangers planned on tracking down the most recent occupants.
Maybe cut flowers would be an appropriate memento to mark Gabby's passing, something that, even if not strictly "no trace" as required, nature would make to disappear in the course of time.
This "leave no trace" ethic when you're in the wilderness. ....You don't leave signs that you've been there. You don't create hardship for creatures who live there (e.g. by moving rocks).
If anyone is curious about the "leave no trace" principles on public lands, here is the National Park statement on moving natural objects:
Perhaps I seem mean-spirited, but those rocks on the river bed belong to the universe, not to one person, not to one event.
- Leave What You Find
- Preserve the past: examine, photograph, but do not touch cultural or historic structures and artifacts.
- Leave rocks, plants and other natural objects as you find them.
- Avoid introducing or transporting non-native species.
- Do not build structures, furniture, or dig trenches.

Maybe he was devastated that they broke up. Or he was protecting her. Or maybe her parents didn’t know he left the trip early because of a breakup. I’m sure they would not have been happy for her to have been on the trip alone. There are certainly reasons that would make sense. It’s fair game to think this could’ve been the case IMO.
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?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.
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.Emotional reactions are spontaneous. I doubt she realized someone would call 911.
Going on idea that it was an unknown assailant... They didn't have to know her well enough, in fact most likely didn't know her. They didn't say grandfather to the mother for all they knew "Stan" was a friend. But knew if they texted the mom, she would know who Stan was and would tell Stan to stop. That's why refer to him as Stan never guessing would be the grandfather.
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.Well that confirms he did make it back to Florida on 9/1.
Comments were limited on Gabby's instagram, meaning only people she follows back can comment, not sure if they have been all along. If it was just changed to that setting, it's possible all social media might be under LE/FBI's thumb right now.
This is a great point.My best guess is 400ml a tank, so 6 or 7 stops minimum, if starting with a full tank. I'm guessing at least 8 stops. I hope the FBI has as much video evidence as I suspect.

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.
