    In a news release Wednesday, the North Port Police Department said Brian Laundrie returned home to Florida September 1, ten days before Petito was reported missing by her family.

    I wonder what documents Brian’s lawyers provided LE with. I’m hoping either their trip itinerary or his flight records to confirm or negate those dates from Gabby’s parents. Anything to solidify the timeline of things.

    Suddenly flashing back on all the times my abusive ex husband drove fast as hell with me or my kids trapped in the car as he tried to scare the living daylights out of us. It can be a huge abuser tactic. There wasn't really any talk about the speeding in the body can footage but 45 in a 15 is really over the limit and if that road is anything other than straight that could be terrifying. I'm really worried for Gabby.

    They can only plead the fifth when answering would implicate them in any type of criminal activity. Those constitutional rights generally apply to defendants and witnesses who have been party to a crime.

    ...she said she didn't touch the wheel to make him swerve.

    Wouldn't this be so interesting (and so helpful for a prosecution if there is one) if he used this camping app on the way back to Florida to sleep? But, it would also be dumb so scratch that. This likely didn't happen.

    I never like the "wandering around confused" explanations... reminds me of Angela Tremonte, the hiker who died alone outside a house off-trail when visiting a Phoenix Police Officer. I think in order for anyone (particularly women) to be in a situation where they could be perceived after the fact as "wandering around confused," there was a situation and/or person beforehand that helped to bring these circumstances about. THAT "sparking" situation is where I am most interested.

    Her father said that while she was at the hotel, she was having technical difficulties while working on her blog, or whatever it is called, her social media postings. He talked to her a few times, and ordered a pizza for her using ubereats. He said this while talking to Nancy Grace on one of her recent podcasts.

    Weird. I live in Utah and spend time in Arizona and have only experienced that when I go way out in the yonders kicking up dust 4 wheeling. Even in Moab I haven't seen that. My stepdaughter got married in the Arches standing in the dirt. Her long white dress with a train stayed clean.

    Yes, by cooperating he could tell them where he last saw her. If he told them that, they wouldn’t be searching for a needle in a haystack.

    I’d be open to a third party, if this guy behaved like every normal, decent person, on planet earth.

    If your loved one goes missing, you report them missing. What you do not do, is run home to mommy and daddy, and make no effort to help her family or the authorities, find her.

    The odds of a random abductor/killer are remote on the whole.

    The odds of a random abductor/killer when coupled with the stunning behavior of her boyfriend and his family?

    I’d put somewhere between once in a lifetime, and a snowball’s chance in hell.

    The only thing I can think of:

    It became clear they couldn’t travel together any more. She didn’t feel like she could drive all the way back alone. He offered to drive it back by himself after dropping her off at the airport/train station/wherever he thought was normal. He didn’t know there was anything wrong till after he got back then got super scared when someone mentioned her being missing.

    The only question with this would be why didn’t she reach out to her parents/friends?

    A few possible answer to this might be: she became severely depressed and then killed herself/disappeared on purpose to get him into trouble for abandoning him/embarrassed and thought she had to handle it by herself but bumped into wrong crowd…

    Lol. EVERYONE apologizes to the cops for speeding. Did the cop say, but you were speeding for 20 miles? Or was it 20 minutes.

    You make some good points. But this guy has no one to blame but himself for driving home in her vehicle and absolutely refusing to tell her family at the very least where he last saw her.

    Do he, and his parents really think there would be no uprising throughout the world at the perceived immoral aspect to their actions?

    This is really interesting because all of this time we've been discussing the mother's last phone call and I lost sight of the fact that the father could have spoken with her last too.
