    I do wonder if that was their Instagram persona? (the healthy eating people)

    Brian's DV on Gabby and speeding/traffic stop occurred on the 12th? And the flight on the 17th? (correct me if I'm wrong). In any case those 4 days, 13th thru 16th must have been terrible, really horrible. Real doozies. He probably inflicted more physical and mental pain on her. There's a reason the trip occurred so quickly after his hitting/slapping her, grabbing her face, attempting carjack of her vehicle, speeding, reckless driving, embarrassing her in public, lying, and, IMO not allowing her to complete her work to upload.

    Charitably (see I'm trying) he may have realized he was spiraling out of control, and may have nearly murdered her in those 4 days, or fantasized about it, and realized he needed help. Maybe once he got home and was coddled, it kind of subsided and he returned, having stole her keys in the meantime to maintain control.

    Or, maybe he saw her vacillating and thinking of ending the trip, ending THEIR relationship. If only.

    When he got back, all the problems were still there in his mind, ready for his own self-ignited explosion towards her.

    IMO

    Dr Brent Blue is the Coroner who carried out the preliminary autopsy, but a second autopsy will be performed.

    This is an extract from one of my earlier posts:

    “Interview with Chief Medical Examiner, Dr William Morrone.

    A preliminary autopsy is to identify the remains and begin the paperwork for prosecution. It also means there’s going to be a second autopsy.

    The second autopsy may involve federal experts and FBI resources. It might take place at the closest university that has a medical school, FBI Headquarters in Quantico, VA or the nearest army/air force base. The FBI might want forensic anthropologists and entomologists because of insect involvement, and a toxicology report will also need to be obtained”.

    This is an extremely high profile case and I’m sure the FBI will choose a suitable medical examiner, not a coroner, to do the second autopsy to establish cause of death.

    I agree 100%. I was talking with my spouse about this last night, if a family member showed up to a picnic/BBQ or whatever without their S.O., we might privately murmur to each other about maybe there has been a split-up or something, but certainly not interrogate them about the wherabouts of the S.O. Not every family is totally up in one another's business to that level.

    you might be onto something…if it’s a case that is currently being tried it would not be public because there has not been a conviction. However if he has been convicted of any other crimes, that would be public if he was over 18.

    What would be the outcome if it wasn’t juvie, but a diversion program as an adult? Or if someone pressed charges (e.g. for shoplifting) and the case was settled the day before the court date?

    Thank you. With places like Moab and Salt Lake we are talking about modern U.S. towns and cities - it's not like waking up in the trunk of a car in Afghanistan. No matter how "emotionally" abandoned someone might feel, rescue from physical abandonment, was close at hand in those places.

    On the other hand, we do have mention of the website/vlog being a point of contention. If anyone had fear of abandonment, it could have been BL. What if GP was talking to successful content creators and they said that BL's attitude was holding her back? She had five days in SLC - what if someone offered a level of support and encouragement that led to realize there is "life" beyond BL? Seems like it wouldn't take long for that to boil over.

    Looks like he does a bit of everything - The East Islip Law Offices of Steven P. Bertolino, P.C. - so it is quite possible that the L family has used him before - for example a real estate transaction, or other family legal bits and pieces. IMO, he will not be representing BL if he is ever found.

    They will, if they catch the gator, cut it open and retrieve things. Don’t forget folks, we now have a bad Bermese Python population in south FL. I wouldn’t go anywhere out in the preserves.
    What should I do if I see a python in the wild?

    I thought the same. Not sure how FL handles domestic violence incident. Some states handle in Juvenile and Domestic Court and those records are not available.

    I have just begun thinking about whether or not GP would be looking at their trip with different eyes after the news of the Moab murders broke. They had just been there, and here she is alone in a motel room. Whether she was afraid of abandonment or just being left alone while he did a day hike, she might have started questioning how safe it would be for her to be out there.

    I just read a similar article out of curiosity (we don’t have them wild in the UK that I’m aware of) so I was wondering if BL could potentially have been eaten as much of a gross thought that is. It can happen but apparently they prefer smaller prey unless they’re really hungry. All interesting indeed, however the more I read the less I think so. JMO

    I have a neighbor that I'm not fond of. I would definitely be inclined to "rent" my driveway out to the media for as long as they wanted to pay. If I were the L's I would be talking to a realtor and making a plan to list the house and get the heck out of dodge. No one wants them there. JMO

    His Juvie record, if there was one, would have been in New York, and if you believe he flew into Tampa, that doesn’t jibe. JMO

    He's got a general practice, more or less. Lists real estate first, so maybe that's primary, but also has a few other areas. Looks like minor criminal defense stuff as well.

    I'm sure they reached out bc he's who they knew.

    It depends on the client and what the issue is but they definitely lie. I have found the client is more likely to tell the truth if they personally do not believe what they did was wrong (like an issue with accounting or compliance) versus something that is morally repugnant. There is always a lot of work reviewing the evidence and then explaining the evidence to the client - that we need to explain this so if there is a good explanation, we should bring it forward.

    Yes, he said he's been their attorney for twenty years. A reporter asked him when the family first called him and that was his answer. Imo

    IMO BL is not the type to think he “needs help”, let alone act on it. He thinks he’s a special snowflake, a life of dupers’ delight.

    In my experience, no, they do not tell the whole truth.

    Some tell the attorney their "version" of events which may be a complete lie. It's then the attorney's job to build a case based on the information given. If some of the information is contradicted by other testimony or facts, the client is then asked to clear up the inconsistencies.
