    I would think they would take them all because if they left some behind they could be contaminated, rendering them useless. Also, in the case of defense, they would want to test them all so that they could prove/disprove if anyone else was present at the crime scene. Multiple spots of blood or multiple hairs aren't necessarily from the same person.

    I like this theory, but I think they just thought she was the aggressor, and stuck her in the van with no bathroom to teach her a lesson. I’d also like some assurance that the female cop really did try to talk her into leaving-not sure wht I believe yet. It could be true; just not sure.

    She was a beautiful girl, but beyond the outside beauty. She was always happy … she was a lot of fun. Always had a smile on her face. Happy-go-lucky, just a really bright spirit,” family friend Jennifer McNamara said.

    Friends and neighbors are throwing their support behind Gabby’s family, letting them know they aren’t facing her tragic death alone. The town bought out the local ribbon supplier of 400 teal ribbons and then ordered 400 more. They expect to run out of those, as well.

    “A friend in Canada went out and bought her own teal ribbon and put it up. Friends in England … so it’s the world. It really is the world,” McNamara said.

    could someone have left a vehicle for him at that park and he is long gone?

    Here is the witness statement re: Moab, Utah incident. “at one point they were sort of fighting over a phone – I think the male took the female’s phone. It appeared he didn’t want her in the white van.” “It was as if the guy was trying to leave her, and maybe take her phone?”

    I am not certain, but I think the timeline for when the vanlife trip started is wrong. In the beginning I kept hearing that it started from New York after they ateended a family event there. But in my mind it started in Florida when they left there to go to NY. I am not sure when they shot there tiktok video of camping on the AT, but I could easily picture them taking their time to drive to New York to stop and see the sites. Still not 3-4 months, though. Maybe they had been telling people that to make it sound more like they were legit Vanlifers rather than just van vacationers.

    Thanks! I read that before posting, but unsure if the 3-4 months claim on the road by BL was discussed here. It's a pretty big difference from the start of July.

    Also big props to you and the mods for keeping this place ticking and in order!

    I think others have pointed it out before, along with some of his other lies/fibs.

    For example, I find it strange that when he is asked what he has in his pockets, he pats at the one on his right hip and says "just my wallet". Then later on in the footage he pulls his phone out of that very same pocket when asked for his phone number. This is after he has already said he doesn't have a phone and would be stranded if she took off with the keys and the van.

    IMO he made up a lot of stuff to get out of being pegged as an abuser in that convo with police. He was throwing stuff out spontaenously, from the top of his head, like the bit about him being bipolar but unmedicated (and didn't he say they both were bipolar? Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought I read that earlier). And the "she's crazy" line. Also--calling Gabby his fiancee, when in fact the engagement had been called off some time before the trip. So claiming they'd been on the road for months is just one more fiction to add to his con job.

    I wonder if police get training on how to detect con artists. I've seen videos on YT given by experts, on what kind of body language, fidgeting, etc. to look for when interrogating people, to recognize when you're being conned. I would think that would be essential training for LE. The only problem is, that the career con artists (a group to which ordinary schmoes like Brian IMO don't belong) can be very smooth. They're very practiced at being disarming, and playing the helpless victim of others, so I don't think the training would be good enough in that type of situation. Still, I think it would be worthwhile for all LE to get that type of training, with the caveat that it's not a 100% guarantee in all situations, of identifying a con job being done on you.

    Anyone think that the bike ride with his mum that the neighbour mentioned could have been to drop supplies of to a certain place for him? He had from the 1st to plan an escape IMO.

    Going urban is a legit possibility. It seems to me to be a more long term option than a wilderness hideout.

    While riskier, making it to a Central America or South America country might give a better chance for lifetime hiding.

    I still think it is possible he has taken his life or will soon.

    I wonder if the information from the Mustang vehicle computer has led them back to searching this area? Lots of trips to the local hardware/big box store followed by a stop near this area to unload supplies? Pure conjecture obviously and MOO.

    It's a play on a missing pet poster, I don't know who created it originally but I've seen it plenty over the past years. It's just art, I don't think there's much to read into. Attached the original - just a screenshot from my phone, so sorry for the low quality!

    EDIT: when I say it's 'just art', I don't mean to disparage art at all! I love art and artistic expression. I just mean that I don't think it's creepy, just funny and super creative. I agree with other posters that looking into people's interests is useful to an extent, but many of us, myself included, are into horror movies, dark stories and so on without ever becoming perpetrators of a serious crime. I don't even think this particular quote is dark, though.
