    are we allowed to link youtube now? This is the call where the witness states BL was slapping/hitting Gabby. Very credible.


    this van life stuff - I had no idea. We did this in the early 90s but in a station wagon with our cats!

    To get away from the 200 other people in that campground, maybe? I follow a few Vanlife channels and I have seen some absolutely stunning campsites without another soul around.

    This makes a lot of sense, Parsnip. It has a bit of a ring of truth to it. It might also explain some of his parents' ...what is the word (searching for not too severe a way to say this while trying to be absolutely clear I don't think anything they did was in the right morally)... their utter lack of compassion?

    I thought her mom was stated as saying she wouldn’t have his name listed as the contact, but instead grandpa?
    Either way, I’m in the opinion that Brian is the one and only POI at this point. IF any evidence is presented later to refute my thoughts, then I will gladly look at that evidence. Right now, I’m following LE’s lead, and they have stated Brian is a POI and they are searching pretty hard for him.

    I would actually love for your theory to be correct, but IMO, I’ve seen too much to the contrary. :)

    I've also thought that GP posted the YouTube video while BL was away in order to try to convince him to come back. And maybe they both re-bonded over seeing all those happy moments that they had shared and decided to try again, but he came back and the issues started up again and got worse than ever until GP ended up dead.

    Makes perfect sense to me.

    JMO Local LE doesn’t stay tight lipped for too long, I think the FBI might have given them a very very short leash once they took over.

    With regards to calling and potentially meeting up with her friend Rose, the friend she fled to multiple times in rough times. Could the fight(s) plus the imminent contact & meet up with Rose compounded his urgency for taking radical steps or going over the edge to make sure that didn’t happen?
    Gabby wouldn’t have an easier way out - out of the trip, out of the relationship, and out of his control…? JMO IMHO

    that's the thing about abuse - dealing with it is toxic. there's no way to stay pure when you're facing abuse.

    It’s supposed to be from real estate listing photos from a house they sold four years ago—so I guess when BL was 19 and Gabby wasn’t yet on the scene.

    Will Gabby Petito’s fiancé Brian Laundrie go from person of interest to suspect? | WFLA

    As this case continues to play out, yet another question remains: Now that a body has been discovered, does Gabby Petito’s fiancé go from a person of interest to a suspect? And, if so, when?

    8 On Your Side spoke at length with a former federal and state prosecutor who believes an arrest warrant is written and ready to go.

    He says it’s only a matter of time.

    “Oh, I don’t think there’s any question, he is the primary suspect and probably the only one,” said attorney Stephen Crawford.

    From a legal standpoint, many are, indeed, wondering – will investigators classify Brian Laundrie’s as a suspect after the discovery of what the FBI believes to be the body of Gabby Petito?

    “I don’t think there’s any question that he’s no longer considered just a person of interest. I think there’s an arrest warrant. I think it’s sealed, but I think it’s out there,” Crawford told us.

    The question is – did Gabby die in Wyoming or Utah?

    Investigators say they’re looking at all evidence in this case and all angles, including the possibility that Gabby may have died in one place, while her body was discovered in another.

    Sad, isn't it? Apparently in the Moab incident he was trying to drive away in her van without her, and ultimately that is exactly what he did.

    I don't. I never lock my phone because it's a pain for me to constantly have to unlock it, and no one else but my immediate family has access to it. I rarely lose it. I think that Brian would have known her grandfather's name, since I heard that they have known each other since childhood. I think that he was trying to throw her parents off, or she was trying to signal her mother that she was in distress. There was a text about no cell service in Yosemite. Yosemite is in California, it's not Yellowstone. I think he would have claimed that she made it to California.

    IMO it sounds like the sister was out of the family loop on what was going on with Brian. I wonder how close she and her brother are. It’s possible the parents didn’t plan to report him missing but when his sister gave the interview and said she couldn’t talk to him, they had to act.

    The way they make it seem as if the stuff he had in his bedroom, the books he was reading, the dark artwork he had hanging up, wasn't normal, but an indication that one may be a murderer is ridiculous. I don't get why the media tries to create a conspiracy out of everything. Many other guys like Darth Vader, the "Watchman" series, and have an american flag hanging up in their room. Yet they feel the need to circle these things as if they're so odd? WTF?

    I've thought about it a lot, morayne, but the thread rules state we're not supposed to speculate on drug use. So therefore I don't mention it. If it were ever proven I'm sure that would change things.

    The hotel posted about working with the FBI in the early early days. I doubt we’ll ever see it though.

    Just my 2 cents…

    FACTS
    - Gabby was given the van at that time of the DV stop, minus BL… she could have left him at that time. LE did it that way to give her an out of the relationship with her van.
    - LE handled BL the way they did because it was an interview tactic, nothing more.. no bromance..etc. Experience talking here.
    - LE cannot force anyone to leave their partner, they can only make suggestions to help, which they did. It’s up to the 2 parties what they do after the police leave a scene. LE have zero control over that. Even if one or more is arrested in the incident.
    - There is no factual, court based, jail records of BL being a woman abuser, only personal opinions of this. Nor is there of GP. We really don’t know who provoked who or what the interior dynamics of their relationship were. Projecting only promotes rumors.

    In order to draw BL out, the public is going to have to lessen the “hate speech” so he has a reason to come out of hiding….

    If the whole world said you were a woman beater that is a *** coward that murdered your girlfriend would you come out of hiding? Probably not… the FBI needs to find this guy alive to bring Gabby justice… if that means bringing the rumor mill down for her parents to get peace, then let’s do it! Let’s focus on the facts that can help FIND BL!

    We are here to try to help, not gossip IMO.

    I don't believe that park ranger said anything like that to her. They were still believing or wanting to believe that she was the aggressor. I think that she is doing some cya. MOO.
