    They've reduced access to Yosemite during Covid. There are limited reservations available (the number of reservations and if they are required has fluctuated throughout the last year and a half).

    Yup. And, they played right into that, protecting him as the officer with the beard spent nearly his whole time there, with little facts in hand, urging BL to press criminal charges and if not, for Officer Robbins to try to find a way within the statute to arrest her.

    So...if Gabby was in Grand Teton (heading to Yellowstone per all her SM) on August 25, how does she get to Yosemite by Aug 29? While Brian has the van and is heading cross country?

    I think the friend is (very) mistaken.

    I think Brian didn't know where he was, either and was substituting "Yosemite" for "Yellowstone." At any rate, Gabby told Mom she was at Grand Tetons on August 25 (a day away from Yellowstone at best).

    Same friend is quoted as saying two different things. I think the NYPOST is mistaken.

    A friend of Gabby Petito said the two were supposed to meet at Yosemite National Park — but she never heard from the Long Island woman, who has since disappeared.

    Petito, 22, was due to meet up with her pal on Aug. 29 at Yosemite and was supposed to call her that day — the friend’s birthday — to nail down the specifics, The Sun reported.

    MISSING 22-year-old Gabby Petito appeared to blow off a meet-up with a close friend in Yellowstone National Park and never phoned on her birthday - but sent a 'strange' final text to her mom a day later claiming she was 800 miles away before vanishing.

    According to the article attached it appears to be GPs mom
    Snipped from article-
    “Brian, how could you do this to Gabby?” Ms Schmidt asked, adding his silence was “reprehensible”.

    Ms Schmidt implored Mr Laundrie to come forward with what he knew.

    “Brian, whatever happened in Wyoming, happened. The only thing you can control is what you do now. Tell us where Gabby is.”

    I've been following this case for a few days now, and the there are only so many ways you can go:
    1. He killed her in the desert and fled back to Mom and Dad for help without calling 911.
    2. They fought. She ran off and fell off a cliff.
    3. They fought. He left her standing in the road to "cool off", drove a few miles, turned around, came back...uh oh...no Gabby. She was picked up by someone.
    4. She's currently tied up and miserable in some idiot's broken down shack.
    5. She's unstable, wandered off and got lost. He couldn't find her, panicked and fled back to Mom.
    6. She made the wrong choice to make him suffer for arguing with her by hiding somewhere he couldn't find her. He gave up and took off home.
    7. <modsnip - not victim friendly>

    Gabby's family is miserable, unhappy and tormented no matter what happened. Laundrii's parents are probably shell shocked and terrified for their son. Morally, Laundrii should give up what he knows. Legally, he doesn't have to say a thing. It seems like an iron-clad legal maneuver to protect Laundrii - but - if she is found dead or never returns and the State puts a provable case together against him, this withholding of help is going to swim back and bite him on the a**. It constitutes unnecessary torture of the victim's family. It won't go well with a jury.

    I hope they find her.

    Would the family be able to say they don't want him to have immunity yet? They are still hoping he will volunteer the information? They're obviously desperate, so I'm not sure where they would play into this decision?

    I agree.

    The local police have said "it hasn't been ruled out".

    That, to me, just means they haven't investigated it.

    For all we know it's a quick "release" of suspicion off of Brian once they look at the facts; but it is actually rather smart of LE, because it/he might be compelled to answer LE's questions on the murdered married couple, and get steered off-course into the tracks of the Gabrielle investigation while they're at it.
     

  10. Gabby's father also mentions Wyoming and 'what happened there', the implication being this was the location of the final incident between the two. imo.

    Wait. Now it's Yellowstone, not Yosemite? So confusing.

    Yes! I remember that being discussed in the Daybell case, and IIRC it was debunked.

    Wait, if Gabby was supposed to meet a friend in Yosemite...when, exactly? But they were last known to be in Wyoming on Aug. 25, , but then two text messages came to her mother between the 25th and the 30th, one saying "no service in Yosemite", but the friend never met up with her there, ... what are we to make of that? Shouldn't LE be all over that?

    Maybe it means she did make it to Yosemite somehow. Or maybe it means BL drove to Yosemite on schedule (but why would he do that? Because he thought G's mom knew the itinerary, and he wanted to send a text from there to throw her off track??), then turned around and went home. But that's a very long drive to FL from Yosemite. What was the date he arrived in FL?

    Shouldn't we be dissecting this? lol. The friend speaking up and saying Gabby never arrived for their meeting in Yosemite seems like an important development.

    Did Gabby send that text message to her mom? Or did BL drive all the way to Yosemite, just to impersonate Gabby via a text message? (Sounds farfetched, but maybe)

    Yep. - you have to have advance reservations to visit the park (can only drive through otherwise - and they are strict...for sure).

    If he pushed her and she fell and died, ‘accident’ or not, he would be criminally liable. I don’t think his fear was about being disbelieved. His fear was knowing he’d be going to jail.

    Maybe nothing but I immediately thought... "Wow, what kind of response is this from his attorney?!" (you'd think attorney would flat out deny any possible association!)

    That’s like 900 miles away. Major whoopsie by Brian I think.
