    Occam's Razor.

    And what plausible, innocent scenario would cause a parent to refuse to speak to the parents of the girl who just didn't come back with their son?

    Mosquitos haven't been too bad, despite all the rain. I was hiking recently east of Northport in a swampy area and I was more concerned about snakes than I was bugs. Trail maintenance on our trail system is mostly voluntary and there is not a lot done over the summer months so the brush was really high in certain sections.

    I keep seeing wild speculation about BL. Keep in mind, he's a 23 year old boy. He's barely an adult. He's not a survival expert. He's not a master of disguise. He has no connections. He most likely is not hiding out at someone's house. He is probably, so far, quite lucky he hasn't been caught yet—because of his inexperience. This idea that he's somehow a MacGyver type who has all of these skills you see in movies just isn't reality.

    It is very frightening!! I have to say that I never, ever thought this would be the outcome of this case. I don't know what I expected, but it wasn't the horrible murder of this beautiful young lady. I really am in shock.

    They went looking for him that wednesday, saw the note, left the car for him to drive home, then when he didnt come back thursday, drove it back, then called LE on friday after (I assume) their attorney telling them to.

    The fact that they misled police into thinking he was in their home when he was not… and didn’t tell them when he left… does not bode well for them.

    He came home to go on a hike, seems like something they would believe.

    So true - I am gutted for Gabby and her family. She should have had at least another 50 years or more of life. IMO no doubt BL did this and I hope he is caught and locked away for a long time. She must have been absolutely terrified in her final moments, and then he just leaves her out there for the animals while he goes home and takes a bike ride with his mom. Despicable.

    I'm guessing he told them they broke up and he didn't want to talk about it.

    Again - her next of kin can change her address. It’s not hard.

    From deductive reasoning, we can surmise that the FBI directed the search go back to Carlton Reserve because they have not seen any bankcard or cell phone activity from Brian for the last week. You know they've got to be monitoring all of his relatives phonelines, his known numbers, and his bank accounts since the suspect can't do anything without money. My guess is that the coward walked out into the swamp somewhere and shot himself knowing they would catch up to him sooner or later. I expect them to find him dead in the next few days.

    Her parents are lovely people and I thin they will want to engage with any project in her name.

    Come what may,
    Gabby, we will never forget you!

    It depends. These reserves are huge areas.

    Yes, swampy areas do dry considerably over the winter months when there is not much rain. I've crossed streams that were chest deep and a couple of months later I could step over them and not even get my feet wet.

    Have they done so recently? I saw a statement from Gabby's family but perhaps I missed one from BL's family...?

    I agree. It's the quotes for me. Makes it seem cavalier. Like why not just say it without using quotes? Probably because it's a "statement". Idk

    I was wondering how they were able to determine so fast. Usually it takes weeks if not months. So this must have been some kind of physical identifier that was obvious? like broken neck from strangulation or gunshot wound. not saying she was shot but just curious how it was determined so quickly
