    Potential scenario: Tuesday BL tells parents he's going to the reserve to get his head straight. He often does this so it's normal behavior and they accept it at face value. Tuesday night he calls/texts to say he's staying out a few days more so come get the car before it's towed. They keep in contact and then on Thursday night he is talking about taking his life. They think they talk him out of it. Friday morning there is no contact from him and they get worried. A few hours go by with no text and they suspect he has done it. They call the lawyer, he calls LE and now LE has all the excuse they need to lay hands on him for a few minutes and hopefully ask him a few questions before returning him to his parents home

    I completely agree that it's not important to LE at this point. But I'm curious as to whether it was a story she told her family as to not worry them that they were having issues on this long trip, or if it actually happened. It's bizarre to me that it would happen in the middle of a planned trip anyway.
    I had asked in a previous thread about whether there had been something solid that shows he went to FL, such as plate readers or plane tickets. Never heard one way or the other & it's not readily available in msm. That I'm able to find anyway.

    Exactly. I wonder how he got out of the house without anyone seeing him. JMO but watching the news, it looked like there were always groups of people in front of the Laundrie home.


    Edited to correct spelling.

    There are stories of neighborhood dogs going missing and later found inside a dead gator. Between gators, snakes, and other wildlife in Florida...he's not staying in a swamp and still living through that.

    My opinion - he's not in the reserve. Evidence is in the reserve.

    Yes, I think you are right. Good observations. Can fingerprints be lifted from rocks?

    She was using Bumble FOR FRIENDS! It’s NOT the dating app!

    For me, it was sad. Like she was expected to be on and bubbly 24/7. She was human. And it sounds like he, or at the very least someone, made her feel like if she wasn’t in a good, happy mood she was “mean”.

    ETA: I think he gaslit her a lot.

    If he’s found dead, or never found at all (rare), I don’t believe there will ever be full closure. We won’t know exactly what happened in Teton. Supporters of GP will claim certain things—namely he killed her. Supporters of BL might say … oh, he was depressed because they broke up and decided to go their separate ways on the trip and just see each other later back in FL. Or, there was a big fight, and he left her in the park, but she was alive (is that a crime?). Or, lots of other scenarios. Ugh.

    Agree. And I do think he's there. It's likely the search was suspended yesterday because Gabby had been found, reducing the urgency of trying to locate BL before he could die with that secret. And given Gabby was found deceased, LE could take the gloves off & go after BL's parents. Best guess is they got enough from his parents yesterday to believe BL's last known location was in that swamp park. And why else would he go there except to die? It's not especially believable he went there for self-reflection & for figuring out how best to say I'm sorry.

    BBM Do we know why they wouldn't take a missing person report?

    For those of you who believe Brian incapable of going on the run...
    Its about 2300 miles from the crime scene to North Port.
    So, that makes his first runner about 2300 miles long...
    with no stops for suicide.

    If he's killed Gabby (he probably did), how can a man twice his size and claim to love his lady turn into a senseless monster? She also could not have had an ounce of chance to defend herself against him. She certainly appealed to him to calm down and spare her life, but these types of men (monsters) can not get any sense and understanding into their minds. They just blindly follow their impulses.

    Hope he gets what he deserves and more for this despicable act and these type of crimes should not be taken lightly cause its also about the woman's right to be respected and treated as such.

    Maybe they ended up in an oral argument first and Gabby maybe had more of the gift of speech and when he ran out of arguments he freaked out. Incredibly cowardly and pathetic way to resolve a conflict and this happens all too often. The man must be in control and place the woman in a lower position to feel better about himself.

    So tragic and I think intensely of Gabby's relatives in this moment. RIP Gabby!

    Ive been having a look at the bodycam video from when they was pulled over. Just before gabby rolls down the video is she making the sign for help from abuse? I watched it over a few times and im still trying to work out if thats what shes doing or not and i cant clearly see from the window reflection? Anyone else see this?

    Fingerprints probably not, but there is a tool to extract DNA off rocks. JMO

    I love this kind of effort! Awesome. I am not comparing to confirm but trust this research.

    Forensics of the van and cell phones and computers will help piece together a pretty good picture, I hope anyway.

    criminal inverstigation...yes...i think he is more than a POI...they just legally can't say it. I beleive they are looking for killer but need to find him / await other evidence to confirm. The FBI is spending a boat load of resources, he's more interesting than the usual POA.

    Does anyone remember the interview w/ her dad discussing reporting her missing? If I remember right they called to do it in Florida first and were told to do it in NY? I would love to source this interview if anyone knows where it is again. I see another misstep if so.
