A few thoughts (and questions)
do we know what time on the 27th the “Stan” text was sent? We have the time stamp on the YouTuber van video… the evening of the 27th - was the text before or after that?
I think she did send the Stan text. Maybe something was wrong, or she was out of it for one reason or another - but I don’t see the point in BL sending a message like that. He lived with her long enough to presumably know what she called her grandparents… and if he didn’t know who “Stan” was (and didn’t know he was family) - why would he know to text her mother to ask for assistance?
I think she died late on the 27th or some time on the 28th. I have no real theories about what happened - other than I don’t see it being anything planned - but rather, something spontaneous - induced either by some kind of episode or some other kind of mind-altering situation. For now, I’m leaving open the possibility of an accidental death for which BL could have been (or thought he could have been) held responsible. I won’t get into specifics here, but I have a few in mind (not likely, but possible).
I do not think he was picked up by the tiktok people - I think they are mistaken as to identity (much like the Idaho sighting). If he was picked up by a couple, he would be in the back seat. Presumably the FBI has by now looked for physical evidence (fingerprints, hair, dna) to verify whether he was there or not. Either way, the story is odd and the details don’t quite make sense to me. Not ruling it out, but that’s how I’m currently leaning.
Why is the 8/30 text message not mentioned in the warrant? Is it bc they don’t think she sent it herself, or is it bc it’s not verified that such a text was ever sent? I do NOT think she sent it - and this one (to me) seems like just a way to buy some time.
the warrant says her phone was turned off on 9/1. That means someone either turned it off (physically) or it ran out of power. I am anxiously awaiting the electronic/phone data, which is obviously a key part of this.
That trip back to florida… Haven’t heard much in the way of official mention by LE… they aren’t asking for people who saw him traveling, etc - which could mean they know it didn’t happen, or they know it’s true (that he went to move stuff in or out of storage, verified by airline records etc, and it’s not relevant), or…?
This reminds me a bit of that. But I believe Brian is no survivalist and wouldn't last in the wilderness. If he is in hiding in that reserve, he will be found dead if at all, imo...
He is not a genius. IMO he was acting in panic during his time at Spread Creek. But now he has a plan. We'll see if he's that much of a mastermind.I really can't get my head around what he was doing out there near where her body was found.
I'm reading a lot of things on these threads from people thinking he's some master planner, strategically trying to throw people off his scent by creating fake alibies, hitchhiking multiple times, driving 2400 miles in 36 hours, lawyering up immediately without saying a word to anyone, slipping out in the dead of night to leave his house, and evading capture with all of 2021's technology looking for him....so here's something to consider:
Why did he leave her body out in the open, uncovered, 100% would have been found within a short period of time, when he had a literal body transport vehicle they were living in? If he really was as smart as you people think he would have put the body in the van, drove it somewhere that they WERE NOT, in a different state, and left it there, pushed it into a body of water, something. A "sociopath" wouldn't mind a few hours of driving around with a body in a van right, for self preservation? To me it looks like he put ZERO effort into covering up what he supposedly did.
So how do you reconcile his genius master plan with leaving her body there? Makes no sense. Something happened to her, but I honestly do not think he purposefully hurt her. Something does not add up. Get out your pitchforks again, I know, have at it.
That could explain why he said he was on a long hike. Maybe he wanted to dispose of some stuff.Totally agree with you. If the JS tiktok is accurate, and she saw him alone on the 26th, then GP probably ended up at the place where her body was found the night of the 26th, morning of the 27th.
Hello everyone. Like many, I've been following this heartbreaking story.
If this article is credible, which I think it is, Gabby was either impaired or deceased by Aug. 26, never making it to Teton National Park alive. My apologies if it has already been posted and discussed, as I can't seem to keep up with this thread.
Gabby Petito case: What one witness saw near the Tetons may help FBI unravel mystery
... Schultz said she saw the van on Aug. 26, when she and her Blue Heeler, Rosie, were headed to a dispersed campsite to meet with Schultz’s friends. As Schultz pulled around the van, she decided to check out who was inside to see if they were people who would want to chat or join their group...
Schultz said that what was unusual about the van during the second sighting was that there were no indications that anyone was camping there — and it was not in a designated parking spot. Normally, parked campers will do things like put out a hammock or table, or open a window, Schultz said.
Seeing the postcards is incredibly sad. Gabby thought these people loved her and nothing could have been further from the truth.
Did BL’s sister release them for attention? I hope her motives were better than that and that she did it to show what a loving person Gabby was.
