    :D Just know it wasn't intended directly at you. I'd seen it a few times before your post and it was niggling at me.

    Sometimes there is no scream. When Frazee beat Kelsey to death, no one heard her scream and Frazee told his cohort that all Kelsey said was "please stop".
    Patrick Frazee trial: 'Please stop,' Kelsey Berreth pleaded as she was beaten to death, says witness
    We expect that someone would scream, but they don't always make much noise. One of the largest hurdles with women who are assaulted is that they often won't scream and it leaves them with incredible amounts of guilt.

    It's quite possible that Gabby froze and didn't make any noise.

    I think the context is important here, though. There's a difference between "hiking the AT" and hiking the AT. One has done some hiking on it (I fall into this category), and some have legitimately done days or weeks on the trail and are at least somewhat familiar with it. I would not expect someone used to car camping that has only done a couple of day hikes on the AT to really have the advantage that someone who has actually backpacked portions of it over many days has. And I think that's kind of the point being discussed.

    IMO, he has or at least "had". And, successfully too. Remember, JMO - if reports check out, he had quite the head start. MOO/IMO

    Okay. So if GP was arrested she would go to jail, and BL would leave in the van. Neither were arrested and GP left in the van, and BL got a room. Right? I'm not from Utah or Wyoming, and I don't know DV processes and that's why I'm asking. What would have been better? Everyone is saying LE didn't handle it right, so what should they have done differently? Could their actions or mishandling cause what happened to GP later?

    I deleted this post as I misunderstood what transpired at the DV call in Moab. Thank you to other posters for clarifying. My understanding now is that Gabby was ultimately not charged, hence there would be not impending court date (which is what my post had speculated about). Thank you fellow WSers for keeping me on track, & sorry for accidentally contributing misinformation!

    Yeah, I don't think it's reasonable that she saw him when he was at her house and also on the camping trip, but she never knew the van was there, he'd returned without Gabby or that the Gabby's family had tried to call. I do believe they exchanged numbers because she said in the interview that she didn't know if it was appropriate to contact them with all "this" going on.

    I truly find it impossible to believe that women would be actually fighting over Brian. It is just a step too far into the realms of nuts, to be honest. I don't even grasp what Gabby saw in him, much less Rose being provoked into jealousy.

    IMO, of course, it's only my own view..

    He probably used the card multiple times, like each time he filled the tank. Also probably grabbed food and drink. Maybe some no doze to keep him awake. Some cash withdrawn too. I always carry cash when I travel long stretches. My calculator comes up to about $600 in gas for that trip these days.

    I think it's worth mentioning that Gabby Petito was 5' 5" and 110 lbs. Brian Laundrie is 5'8" and 158 lbs.

    ETA: Corrected GP's height.

    Was there a pending court date or was all that changed when they opted not to charge her?

    Do you have a link to where Rose said that Gabby slapped Brian? I haven't seen that. I have seen where Rose said that he was controlling with Gabby.

    JMO on advice to Dog. Don't pick up any potential evidence. Gloves or not. Go get one of those clamp things people use to pick up stuff after surgery and put what you find in a bag. No contamination, no smudges can make the difference between anything you find being admissible or not. MOO.
