    He may have just emptied her accounts and withdrew all the money. With many banks you can use your debit card to access both your checking and savings accounts.

    They may have surveillance camera footage of him alone at the ATM.

    Just when I think I couldn't get more disturbed. He is a piece for sure. I'm not religious but I'm begging the powers that be to find him alive.

    It explicitly states Wyoming and elsewhere. It likely did not happen within a federal property because the indictment cites interstate commerce as the reason they have jurisdiction instead of the fact that they were in a national park or forest.

    WOW, not only did he use Gabby's card after she was dead, he did a LOT of shopping... wondering if it's wilderness supplies...

    This also tells us they have a pretty good electronic paper trail & undoubtedly video of him shopping.

    This leads me to believe that the shopping spree may have provided FBI with some clues as to him going into the swamp (based on what he bought).

    This begs the question did he always have the card? When her dad ordered Uber Eats, and she had $1,000 in there, why couldn't she order her own. Maybe because she didn't have the card in her possession maybe she wasn't allowed to.

    Do you know if there is a crime with a higher amount that would give us a ballpark of between $1k and something else?

    There were 2 accounts listed and one card number. It's possible to take funds from more than one account with a single card (access device) and just take cash from an ATM. Purchases would impact only one account so I believe he used an ATM and made purchases. IMO

    He is on camera saying he loves to hike.
    Instead he kills his fiancé, steals her van, uses her debit card, hides out at home while making an escape plan with the help of his parents. No. It doesn’t make sense.
    Said it before, how about calling mom and dad and asking for a bus ticket and then a ride to tell LE what he did in WY? Nope, he isn’t a man at all.

    I think it's pretty standard and preferred option to meet in person at attorney's office. The attorney's office is a controlled and LE shielded environment with no surveillance or wiretapping. Attorney probably also took extra precautions and had them leave electronic devices in the car.

    edit to add: also importantly, the attorney wants to secure that $$$ retainer right away! And secure future financial obligations.

    FBI Poster as of today still reads:

    The FBI, in coordination with the National Park Service, the U.S. Forest Service, the Teton County Sheriff’s Office, and the Jackson Police Department seek assistance from anyone who utilized the Spread Creek Dispersed Camping Area between the dates of August 27-30, 2021, and who may have had contact with Gabrielle "Gabby" Petito or may have seen her vehicle.

    I could see him embellishing his experience when talking to two young women who don’t have experience with hiking trails. Even his and Gabby’s hikes posted about on their social media seem to be day hikes and tourist spots. Will have to check you the link. Thanks for sharing!

    Her dad could've simply done it as a treat.

    Now we know how he could finance time on the run. Weren't they planning to travel through Halloween? Gabby may have had a lot of money saved for the trip.

    So about $300 for gas. Two nights, maybe stayed at two hotels, so that's probably another $300. We're still missing at least $400.

    Maybe he ate at Ruth's Chris.
