    While possibly true (of her) that doesn't automatically mean he's the cause of that.
    He could be, statistics pointing to the partner/spouse indicate he might be, but there's a ton of info we still don't know.

    I agree, but I only heard him call her crazy when he was talking to the cops and she was in the back of the cruiser with the door closed.

    Yes I noticed that too. It’s a stand out name that people would recall. Plus the hotel being opposite the cafe.
    It’s all 2+2, just could equal 5!

    Thanks for this update. ^^^

    Sounds like they will be pleading with BL and family ; as in -- "Please, we're sick with worry. Can you help tell us anything about where she might be ?" :(
    MOO.

    I know im in repeat mod but i can´t believe the fact that he can´t even tell LE the last known location of GP that he knows off. How would that incriminate him? It would save alot of time digging through phone data and they could ´rescue´ her faster that way.

    If that's true, I'm surprised she volunteered (and bought the van) for a second cross-country road trip with him.

    Did she ever tell her mother about their difficulties? She apparently was on the phone to her mom after that altercation. If her mom knew they had trouble getting along in the past, I would think she'd have concerns about Gabby staying in the relationship, and certainly about her planning another road trip with him. But maybe mom felt she wouldn't be able to disuade her. It could be that her mom has been harboring a lot of misgivings about the relationship for quite awhile. And now it ends like this. Devastating!

    It's more speculation, but I keep wondering about why another road trip, if he'd been overbearing in the past, and about how victims in abusive or manipulative relationships aren't always aware they're victims. She thought they were getting married, and was posting pix of baby clothes on Pinterest? While dealing with issues with him? That's hard to get my mind around, but it's definitely possible.

    Just thinking out loud...

    Thanks, I'd forgotten about his drones.
    He took a photo I think at the Salt Flats of the van ?
    I do wonder if LE have requested to view the footage captured by BL's drones ?
    Imo.

    Yes and the fact that she's posting for videos and Instagram she'd want everything perfect...perfectly staged. If you've had any experience on Instagram most people perfectly stage their videos and shots. It's quite crazy the lengths they go through to make everything appear perfect. It seems that Brian probably wasn't so into that as maybe she was.

    Also, there's a ton we don't know because the one person who can fill in the blanks, and supposedly loves Gabby won't enlighten us. I could care less about this guy's rights if he's not willing to help.

    For me, it is difficult to form an opinion on the bodycam footage knowing what has happened since then.

    I also think the police officers acted based on the limited amount of information they had at the time. IMO, I tend to think it was handled appropriately.

    Another song, "Take My Hand," is about picking up a stranger at a bar. "The Badger’s Wake" is about a badger decomposing underground.

    At the end of body cam video it looks like that is where the officer drops him off when cross checking with Google Maps?

    Do you think it sounds possible that in the context of an already frustrating day... him wanting to go on an enjoyable, dirty, non-documented hike and her maybe wanting to charge up the devices and get "show" ready... regardless of prior plans to document their trip... could be a plausible source of tension for a young couple?
