    MOO Oh, I agree with you that once GP mom contacted them they asked him and he told the truth (whatever that truth turns out to be) and then they called a lawyer and he told them to not interact with GP's family and to wait for LE to contact them and that he (the Attorney) would take it from there. From there on they have probably been having mental breakdown and can't even keep track of what day it is.

    Yes, Gabby lived with them. GP's friend, Rose, is quoted as saying that GP would come stay with her (7-10 times in the short time they knew each other), whenever GP and BL fought. I also think that if BL actually did fly home in August it was because they had a fallen out and he told his parents they broke up. but then he went back. So I think it would be pretty easy to spin a convincing tale how she had left him and was spending some time with her friend.

    It's possible that BL's actions directly after killing GP tell us a lot about what his actions are now.

    If you take the tiktok sightings as true, then he was seen parking at Spread Creek dispersed site on 8/26 at 8:10PM. If he left GP's body across the creek from there that night, then it's possible he walked along that creek bed west/northwest towards the Snake River. I can only imagine his mind would have been going a million miles an hour at this point and physically, he was on an adrenaline high. Getting away from people would have been paramount and following the creek to the river area would have been an easy way to do that unseen.

    What he told the Coulter Bay tiktoker, who picked him up there on 8/29 at 5:30PM, is that he had been camping along the Snake River for multiple days. Well, this makes perfect sense if he walked from the dispersed site at Spread Creek! While he was on this multiday campout is when he must have formulated his plan. And that plan included returning to pick up the van at the Spread Creek site and drive back to Florida.

    Question is, what is in Florida? It seems obvious - his parents. His parents, and/or what he had at that house, must have been instrumental in his plans. He had to have known the **** would hit the fan soon but he knew he had plenty of time to come up with his escape plan which he is executing now.

    My guess is that what he is doing now is exactly what he did between the time he killed GP and the time he surfaced in Coulter Bay - namely backpacking and resurfacing to eat/shower/hitchhike. If he's not dead in that swamp they are searching, then he will surface soon and be easily spotted. His options and resources seem very, very limited.

    Here's the tracker from flightradar24. If you click on Saver 22, 19, etc., they say US Army. I assumed that would mean they came from the Army, but I could be wrong.

    In my opinion, there's nothing of value to be learned there. Lots of people like horror novels and movies, "dark" art, violent video games, etc. and don't end up hurting anyone ever. There's plenty of substantive stuff about BL's behavior in the past few weeks we can side-eye in all this.

    As funny as that it, I hate that stuff. It completely ruins my decision making on whether or not I should get a juicer from them or maybe a getaway backpack instead.

    LE had to make several judgement calls in that 75 minutes. Nothing is perfect. They're under so much pressure in a traffic stop like this. I just think it's unfortunate Michael's call to 911 somehow wasn't relayed to LE who were talking to G & B. But everyone can Monday morning quarterback for sure. I read what the female ranger said about having regrets she didn't press the matter with G. I read them when someone posted her words here this morning. No, I don't have a link. I mean, at least the female ranger said something to G. I'm really glad she did.

    Can someone go to 4:35 of the nirvgorilla YT video and compare the bag (backpack?) in the driver's seat to the one the BL look-alike is wearing in the Trail Cam footage please?!

    They look identical to me, especially the black/dark straps. I'm one of the newbies, so forgive me for not knowing how to link.

    Sorry if this breaks any rules. I'm colorblind too, so a few strikes against me.

    From what locals have posted, I don't think the Reserve is a place where someone who knows he is a POI would hide out for over a week. IMHO, if he is hiding, he's found a better hiding place. And if he is alive and hiding, he will surface before long and someone will spot him. His face is *everywhere*. Patience, my friends.

    I mean, possibly, but if it's an REI daypack, like someone up thread suggested, then we have to leave room for the possibility that someone else also shopped for one at REI. Weird coincidence? Yes - but not a sure way to ID someone.
    MOO.

    ETA MOO

    We all remarked on the picture- perfect tidiness of the early van pictures. Then the one(s) taken at the time of the cop stop showed a really messy van in disarray. I wonder if the van was deliberately trashed in anger, or in looking for something, perhaps while Gabby was in the store, blogging?

    That was the whole point of my post. Its not the gravesite. I was just detailing why it wouldn't be for the people who keep thinking it is.
