    BOONE, NC (FOX CAROLINA) - A death investigation is underway after a body was found near an overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway, according to the National Park Service.

    NPS says law enforcement rangers responded to the scene and located a dead man at 1:19 p.m., below Yadkin Valley Overlook at milepost 289.8.

    They say the cause of death is unknown, and an investigation is underway led by NPS Investigative Services Branch with assistance from NC State Bureau of Investigation.

    From public facing evidence to date, he presents himself as a bit of a loner who enjoys the outdoors. IMO he may be thinking living a life on the run in solitude is better than living a life in a cell. And, I know AG Barr brought back the death penalty, and if by some chance Wyoming law would be governing that Wyoming has the death penalty, but I don't think they will charge this (if at all) as a capital offense. Those are very hard cases and I don't think they'll have enough. MOO So, IMOO, he really screwed up by running. He blew up his defense by doing this. Not smart of him (and/or anyone else who may have given him this advice). MOO Not fact.

    I doubt it's him. Read the twitter thread from the local MSM who reported it @FahertyWSOC9

    upload_2021-10-10_20-43-21.gif I just want to know if it’s him they found in NC ... I hope not, I want him found alive. I wonder how long before we will know. And BLs parents ... I just can’t understand their behavior ... how could they not respond to Gabby’s family’s desperate pleas... And BL ...just ... how could he?? Moo

    Exactly. I honestly cannot see how anyone could come to a different conclusion.

    Thanks for that fine and insightful post, @TheGardener. I've been worried about some of the things you mention. No witnesses.

    If there was blood, if it was on the ground outside or washed or thrown away from the van, then that evidence is probably gone; luminol proof - maybe; we can hope.

    Deadly head injury from a rock or other weapon -- where's the weapon? If blood on killer's clothing, surely the killer burned the clothes; if not burned, maybe found with legal search.

    Gunshot -- where's the gun? If found -- fingerprints - not any more; proving it's the murder weapon by firing and finding grooves a match, very possible evidence there.

    Strangulation -- broken hyoid bone -- suspicious, but probably need more -- neck skin scratches probably not sufficient for evidence by the time she was found -- petechiae, most likely no longer present.

    Beating her to death -- coulda been anybody, right? Where's the weapon?

    Tuff case, IMO, but the FBI can do amazing forensics.

    I find it very strange that it hasn't been denounced. The trail cam video in Baker, FL denounced quite quickly. MOO

    Based on the reports of multiple 911 calls coming from their house while Brian was there, my guess is there was some turmoil going between them--and then he left. How do you keep a grown adult from leaving? Should they have shot him?

    Are you suggesting they should have gone to Wyoming to look for her? How do you know what Brian told them about what happened? We don't live in a Kumbaya world, unfortunately--people don't react to situations the way we want them to, because we're all different. These people are going through a serious event that most people don't get trained to handle. I think the abuse they are enduring is shameful.

    All of the people condemning their actions irl and on sm without having any idea of what actually happened. Including hammering signs into their lawn, yelling at them with bullhorns, and posting on sm as though somehow privy to exactly why they are doing what they are doing, and it's very bad. jmo

    Do you know, is this "below Yadkin Valley Overlook" a place you can fall/jump to your death?

    Victims of their son's behavior. They didn't ask for any of this.

    I’m starting to feel confident again that BL is most definitely alive, wherever he is.

    they could have at the very least talked to the Petitos and started an investigation. I can't even get into this.

    It's impossible, really to even hazard a guess without the cause of death being known.
    There may be very very good evidence and very stong evidence.
    Or there may be very little at all.

    It's almost impossible to sleuth this case because we know so very little about his character or reputation. I wish they would find him now. Or not. I just want it to be over.
    I just have a sinking feeling there will be more shock-horror before catharsis is realised. I hope I'm dead wrong about that.
    I have a sense her cause of death will be very disturbing news. I hope I'm wrong about that too.

    None of this is an excuse.
