    He's around her age and they went to high school together - were in the same grade or he might've been one above

    THIS.

    Where is this guy's friends, cousins, ex-friends, no-one is talking, why???

    Usually here on WS a POI has lots of background info even if not illegal activity. We CAN sleuth him. Can anyone find anything, at all?

    Every state has their own specific statues and bar requirements in relation to this but nearly all states require attorney's to disclose information learned from a client that will prevent death or serious injury.

    Rule 1.6 Confidentiality of Information - Comment
    "Paragraph (b)(1) recognizes the overriding value of life and physical integrity and permits disclosure reasonably necessary to prevent reasonably certain death or substantial bodily harm. Such harm is reasonably certain to occur if it will be suffered imminently or if there is a present and substantial threat that a person will suffer such harm at a later date if the lawyer fails to take action necessary to eliminate the threat."

    The Crime-Fraud Exception
    " They (attorney) generally have an obligation to reveal any information that would prevent someone else from suffering death or serious injury."

    "The client tells the attorney about the location of a missing witness or victim, or a key piece of tangible evidence, the attorney sometimes will need to disclose that information."

    "If the crime-fraud exception applies, the attorney can be subpoenaed and must disclose the information. In some instances, the attorney must take it upon themselves to report the information. These generally include perjury (not necessarily when the client themselves gives perjured testimony), crucial evidence, missing witnesses or persons in danger, or serious threats of harm."

    In the video Brian mentions their last road trip and that they talked about doing it again but he suggested doing it big (I think that’s what he said) and getting the van. I think the social media aspect came later.

    I'm so bad at it, and am always amazed by what people can find on here.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but it seemed like she was on the phone with a parent when she was sitting in the squad car during the incident.

    I dunno. My take away is that they got the Transit, converted it, and then started their trip simply posting stuff on the Gram. My perception is that they gained a bunch of IG followers and Petito thought that was an opportunity to go YouTube. Most (successful) VanLife YouTubers start their channel with some version of "The Build Series" where they go kinda step-by-step with converting their van. That is what draws subscribers initially. It gives you a base... hopefully enough to monetize. In this case, the "debut" vid on their channel is a montage... which really seems like there had been no strong strategy from the start. [I guess I gotta put "IMO" 'cuz I really have no direct knowledge!]

    IF he murdered her in the national parks he is eligible for death penalty, is that correct? What about this Zone of Death you hear talked about.

    Wait, the hotel room BL was provided by the DV program was only 100 yards from Moonflower? I wonder if he did in fact stay there or if he went elsewhere.

    IMO, if a tragic accident occurred, why the silence? Why not notify someone at that moment. Yes, He sure would have mentioned the tragedy to his parents? To someone? And if he's that distraught, the parents can speak for him. I don't believe that for a second. Yes, a tragedy happened. Maybe he did not mean for it to happen, not intentionally, but a crime of passion maybe. But it happened. And the silence from all only make him look bad.

    Re. the lavender bolded :

    FULL VIDEO: Bodycam video of Utah police encounter with Gabby Petito and boyfriend Brian Laundrie - YouTube
    From the NBC2 msm news video, it sounds at 6:11 -ish that Gabby was grabbing the wheel and BL says she said (paraphrased as it's a bit muffled); "...you can't leave me again..." ??
    It sounds like he'd driven off without her before and imo this makes him not look very good.
    It looks like Gabby was fearful, and not enraged. :(
    That's an abusive act in itself.

    Re. the green bolded : I would definitely agree !

    Hoping my fears are wrong and she's ok but left her old life for whatever reason.
    Even BL having the van & returning w/o Gabby may not be suspicious to some --- but his silence is unnerving to me.
    Imo.

    I thought it was to pursue a free spirit minimalist lifestyle. Blogging became a secondary outcrop.

    "OCD is an over-used & misused term to describe people who like things neat & tidy with i’s dotted & t’s crossed. The official psych diagnosis is something else entirely. I don’t think GB was really OCD. I think she was particular about the van & tent being picture-perfect for her Instagram pics & vids. Pretty gets followers, messy & sloppy does not. Guessing BL got tired of folding his shorts & picking up his socks on vacation while re-plumping & re-fluffing pillows to keep things van beautiful. They had very different goals for this trip imo. Jmo. In this case the incompatibility became tragic. Imo."

    Yes, they definitely found out that they are NOT compatible. They both became irritated, and then controlling in the eyes of each other. (Sorry, normal quoting didn't work this time.)

    I'm a few years older than GP (I'm 25) but we share a lot of similar qualities. When I was 18 I had a very similar relationship with someone who absolutely was abusive emotionally and eventually physically who carried himself similar to BL in this videos.
    My ex and I went backpacking, rock climbing, and kayaking together among other adventures. Once he capsized in freezing water and I had to use all my strength to pull him and his kayak out of the water and save him. I was badass. I was strong and adventurous and capable -- and also a victim of abuse. They are not mutually exclusive things and it's not insulting or sexist or not giving her credit to suggest that the dynamics in her relationship based on this incident and video might be unhealthy and she might be the victim of abuse. It's honestly recognizing those things about her and making a hypothesis about what circumstances would strain her mental state and lead her to the distressed state she was clearly in.
    I was a completely different person when the stress caused by my partner (who I did genuinely think I loved) pushed me to a complete state of overwhelm.

    We are speculating, but there is a solid basis for it and it's absolutely a possibility we can't rule out especially given that their encounter with the police has escalated to a nation wide hunt for a missing girl in a matter of weeks. Things like that don't happen when there isn't trouble in paradise.

    Only if you returned in a vehicle you didn’t own & the owner was missing. I don’t think the social media thing was some spontaneous idea that GB sprung on BL halfway across the USA. She’d been converting this van, planning for this new life for quite some time. If BL didn’t want to be in the SM spotlight, he should have had the maturity to negotiate staying out of her new business venture, or kept his a** home. He had zero reason to get upset about HER goals. Imo

    Richard Stafford, the spokesperson for Gabby's family, will be addressing the media today at 2:30 pm One Corporate Drive, Bohemia, NY. He will be reading a letter from the Schmidt and Petito family to Christopher and Roberta Laundrie. He will take limited questions afterwards. I will try and get link to watch/listen

    I’m guessing that the silence is some sort of legal thing that will be needed in the courtroom later. “Anything you say can and will be used against you”. Whether he did something to her, something happened to her while he was present, or whether he was simply negligent by leaving her and something happened to her in his absence…there’s got to be some special situation in which his silence is legally necessary.

    Despite all of my misgivings ... the only thing that stands out to me like a dead tree in a snowy landscape is BL's silence.
    Say something, anything.

    Even if it's just, "... we were at this location and she became upset and left me."
    Tbh, I don't think she'd leave without her van or at least calling her family to let them know what happened ?
    Imo.
