    Or being locked out of her van and abandoned, the thing that she was so scared of happening again in Moab. I think that he tormented her with threats to abandon her. MOO.

    no problem! Also pay attention to the words “affected interstate commerce.” This means he is alleged to have moved the money he retrieved or “things” he bought illegally from one state to another. IMO It came down from Wyoming because that’s where it started…but it’s a federal indictment because it involves multiple states since he affected interstate commerce. IMO Meaning he did some shady things with these cards here and did some shady things there and then there

    That's exactly right. What in the world could BL have told them to make them react like that. They either knew the truth or he told them something horrendous about GP. But why would they continue their behaviour. I haven't heard of any ill feelings between the parents prior to this. Boggling...

    Why she didn't tell her parents?

    Abusive relationship = embarrassment for most of us. It's the entire reason it's such a cycle. Two elements: the abuser is contrite and tries to make up; the abused person is mortified and wants to be an adult and handle things by themselves.

    It takes more than just a couple of seminars to get people in controlling and then abusive relationships to wise up. IME.

    Thank you! If they were both using Gabby's cards what's to stop him saying he didn't know she was dead? Would LE have to have knowledge that he knew she was dead to charge him? Or based on what we know so far in the case would that be enough for LE to convince them he knew? Hope that makes sense! o_O

    I mentioned the case ^^^^ where a Northwestern professor and his co-conspirator murdered a young man in gruesome fashion then went on the run. At some point, the professor made a donation at a small library. This was used to track him down. (IIRC not via camera). So, libraries won't preserve your anonymity, that's for sure.

    On Dr Phil, he dad said they were working on her website or webpage. Whatever it was. And he said they were youtubing each other. He said he bought her pizza. He did mention she said something about a power outage. He never said it was why she couldn't have food the next day. He also NEVER said Brian left her alone in that state at that time, but he did say that if Brian did leave her alone like that, he'd go get her. So I do not get why her father would not mention an important detail like Brian actually freaking left her once before on that trip.

    Much of the footage was from a previous trip altogether. I wonder if she wasn't running out of material while he was gone.

    He asked her if she wanted gas money from him. “He told her he had seen elk and moose but no bison, and when he asked her if she needed any gas money, she said no.” Brian Laundrie manhunt: Woman in Wyoming says she picked him up hitchhiking

    Because apparently he had her under his thumb pretty much and she seemed gaslit trying to put blame on her own self. Typical abuser behavior on BL's part. JMOO from unfortunate experience.

    You don't put money into a Capitol One card. It's a credit card, you are borrowing from them and paying it back to them with interest. They specifically mentioned that card.

    Appears they both tormented each other. Seems to be what they did based on friends accounts of happy one minute, at each other the next.

    Is that one we've seen or one that we don't know about?

    MY understanding Gabby had her phone and called her Mom in the back of the police car.

    I highly doubt it! Not after being with him for 7 yrs.
    She probably wanted to, hoped that she could end the relationship with him.
    At 22, any guy that got a sense about that relationship would hit the ground running after a run in with him.
    He had already managed to isolate her from literally everyone.
    A new relationship was never gonna happen.
    IMO
    It's the nightmare highschool sweethearts story you never hear about.
    Been there done that!
    I wish she did meet someone in his absence though! Even after her death, he'd be frothing at the mouth!
    MOO

    I had to look back to Gabby's stay in the SLC hotel. What was going on?

    Last text message missing 'van-life woman' Gabby Petitio sent to her mother is revealed | Daily Mail Online

    (Gabby's mom) She's also questioning Brian's trip back to Florida in August to help his father move their belongings out of a storage unit.

    Brian left Gabby in the Fairfield Inn in Salt Lake City and flew back home to Florida from August 17 to the 23 to help his father empty out a storage unit where he and Gabby had their things.

    According to Schmidt, Brian's father offered to let them keep their belongings at his house so they wouldn't have to pay for the storage unit.

    He left Gabby at the hotel so she, understandably, wouldn't be alone in the van. Brian then flew back to Utah and they left the hotel together on August 24.

    Schmidt now wonders why it was necessary to move Gabby's things during their road trip and what became of her stuff.

    'Where are her things?' she asked."

    snip

    The Perkins restaurant is attached to the hotel and supplies morning breakfast to the Fairfield Inn guests.

    A cashier at Perkins restaurant told DailyMail.com that she saw Gabby in the hotel lobby around August 24.

    Justina Suazo, 49, said, 'I distinctly remember her because I commented to my co-worker how cute she was. I saw her in the lobby and she appeared to be just a normal guest.'

    When showed a picture of Brian Laundrie, she said, 'I never saw him at the hotel.'

    At the Kicks 66 convenience store located down the street just a few hundred yards away from the Fairfield Inn, a cashier recognized the couple.

    The cashier told the DailyMail.com, 'They came into together on the night of August 21. I remember them because he was telling her to 'hurry up.'

    Gosh, I hadn't heard that there was any "torment" coming from her to him - only drama and several breakups.

    The article says HE asked HER if she needed gas money. For giving him a ride.
