    unless someone has seen her BC, isn’t it possible she had her mother’s maiden name for a time after her birth?

    Thanks for this, very useful. I found this interesting, and for that reason, I am glad that there is limited access to guns in the UK.

    Why he returned is beyond me!

    Would that be ruled a homicide though? Wouldn't that be "inconclusive"?

    So we don't yet know cause of death, does that mean her family would not either?

    That's been the main problem since day 1. The written statement by LE does not match the words said in the cop cam, nor does it accurately reflect what the first eye witness said. IE that the man was slapping and hitting the woman. Not mutual DV.

    Respectfully, what difference does it make who is asking the questions?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but your post came across, to me, as if you're attempting to imply that the folks asking the questions are, in some way... "harassing".

    Here in the US, we have the 1st Amendment for freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble.

    I might be way off here but, as annoying as the folks might have been at CaL's house, the folks there were there as protestors, have a right to free speech, asked their questions, got answers and, as promised, have not returned to her house since that interview took place.

    Unless there is a Protective Order in place, personally, I just don't see how anyone asking questions from a public street would constitute any form of "harassment".

    I'm saying that IMO, if BL is indeed dead, whenever that may have happened, the parents being "confused" about a date after GP's demise will not be material, even if some charge can be brought against them.

    Here's an article originally published on 9/13. It references a photo of Chris Laundrie mowing his lawn on Monday (which would be the 13th) and shows the front of the Laundrie home (sans Mustang).
    Mom of missing Florida girl, 22, pleads for help to find her daughter | Daily Mail Online

    It was originally posted at 16:07 (4:07 p.m.). I've been hung up on the 12th and 13th dates, so I've been trying to really narrow down that time frame. So here's some research I've done.

    I was able to find a daily weather history on WeatherUnderground for Punta Gorda, which is approximately 18 miles away. It showed light rain starting at 5:49 p.m. and ending somewhere between 6 and 6:30 p.m.

    For Venice Muni Station, which is approximately 14.5 miles, it reported thunder beginning around 3:15, heavy rain at 3:55 pm. and continuing off and on until about 7:15 p.m.

    If the article was posted on the 13th at approx. 4:00 p.m., then the photos had to have been taken earlier in the day. Taking into consideration the afternoon rain beginning around 3 p.m., we can safely assume they were taken before 3.

    WeatherUnderground also reflects a high of 91 degrees at noon, so I would venture to guess they were taken the morning of the 13th because he wouldn't want to cut grass in the middle of the day. Clearly that is an assumption, and I am still trying to narrow that down.

    We also have this video from Fox 13 at 6:03 p.m. I'm basing the p.m. off the fact that the news anchor says at the beginning "developing tonight." She then flips to one of their reporters who is live in front of the home. The Mustang is not there, the Dodge truck is.

    There is a second video from Fox 13 during their 10 p.m. broadcast and they go back to the same reporter who is live again in front of the Laundrie home.

    I took a screenshot of the second video and turned the exposure WAY up in an attempt to see the background. There's probably a much better way to do this and achieve better results, but I was trying to do it on the fly. It looks like the truck is in the background.

    Something that caught my attention - if you look at the first video from the 6 p.m. broadcast, the truck is backed directly underneath the camper. In the second broadcast, if I am right in what I'm seeing, the truck is now facing the camper and possibly a little more towards the left. I uploaded both photos for reference. If that's true, then obviously the truck was moved at some point between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m.

    The written report does not match with the 911 call and some parts of the LE video which is why I believe they are investigating how the call was handled and why the report does not reflect the 911 call. I am not negating Gabby’s participation/contribution, that she was not also being physical with him but the 911 call clearly stated he saw him slapping her, it is in the 911 call transcript.


    Dispatcher: Grand County Sheriff's Office. Hi, can you hear me sir?

    Caller: Yeah. Hi, I'm calling. I'm right on the corner of Main Street by moonflower. And we're driving by and I'd like to report a domestic dispute to Florida with a white that Florida license plate. White Van, gentlemen. 5'6 Beard.

    Dispatcher: Where's it at?

    Caller: They just drove off. They're going down Main Street. They made a right onto Main Street off Moonflower

    Dispatcher: Or what were they doing?

    Caller: But what do you say?

    Dispatcher: What were they doing?


    Caller: We drove by them. A gentleman was slapping the girl

    Dispatcher: He was slapping her?

    Caller: Yes. And then we stopped. They ran up and down the sidewalk. He proceeded to hit her, hops in the car. And they drove off

    hello everyone - took a few days off so going to attempt catching up.

    I am getting less hopeful because of how quiet everything has been - but may today be the day there is justice for Gabby.

    I don't think that's what's happening at all. We can say that her physical violence was wrong without blaming her for her own murder. She didn't deserve this and if he had any case for self-defense he and his attorney would've claimed it.

    I think the 911 call reporting the altercation is a different person. Chris witnessed it and offered to give a statement if police needed it. He gave his details. Here is the 911 call

    Homeless shelters wouldn’t exclude someone for not having ID, but the homeless person would have to help them and/or social services to replace it, if he wanted to continue to occupy a cot. If he gave a name, place of birth, age, dob, mother’s name, etc., it would have to match with a real person, or the gig would be over in a few days. If the real person were dead, that would be discovered very quickly. If the real person were, for example, earning wages in the same state as the the shelter, that would be discovered fairly quickly, too. He possibly could buy time by stealing the ID of an out of state person, as long as that person is not on public assistance. If the real person were on assistance in another state, that would be discovered. It’s not that easy. And if he remained evasive and forgetful, staff would turn to LE to make sure he is not a fleeing felon.

    There are plenty of people living under bridges, etc. Who appear at shelters when the weather is unbearable. They are a diverse group themselves, but Brian would have a look of recent dental work-and not by a Medicaid dentist. He would be lugging REÍ camping equipment rather than using a shopping cart. I expect that shelter staff would suspect he was not giving an accurate back story early on.

    Ha...found it:

    Morgan Wolfe on Twitter: "#UPDATE @GCSheriffUtah has DENIED our request for the 911 call that a man placed outside of the Co-Op where Petito and Laundrie were seen arguing. What investigation? Moab PD say they decided their was no evidence to move forward with charges. #KSLTV https://t.co/dU7c1r2IGV" / Twitter

    That is why I never saw it. DENIED.

    And now I wonder if LE spoke to more than two people but did not file a report.

    Re: 911 calls
    Right now , in the search for finding BL, I am more puzzled by the 911 calls and LE response to the L home starting on the 10th. The 10th was before the missing person report was filed, before the media and protestors were camping out front, before laundry baskets and flowers were defiling their precious lawn, before there were bullhorns, before Dog was at the door-so why were there 2 calls on the 10th and subsequently, 4 on the 11th???

    Iirc on the 10th GP’s family started reaching out to the family of the man that their daughter loved. And that is when I think the *^%# hit the fan. I think that is when the Ls turned away from their phones and said to BL, (something along the lines of…) “wait a minute, G isn’t home after a fight like you said…, where the heck is she?” And having lived with this young troubled couple for quite a bit, and knowing what they had seen and heard, these parents had an Anthony lightbulb moment akin to opening a car truck, and an argument ensued.

    And IMO the argument must have pretty bad. I don’t know about most of you, but it usually takes a lot to punch those numbers. The last time my family called 911, I was having a heart attack. So I figure tensions and fear and anger were at an all time high when 911 started to be punched from the Laundry home. I wonder if LE laid eyes on BL during ANY of their responses on the 10th or 11th? My guess isBL skedaddled after a screaming match with C and R ( and forget the new phone). IMO, they didn’t report him missing cuz they thought he’d be back.
    then they called SB, and the “stories” began.

    I hope Fox has made another FOIA request to get those 911 reports in full. The fact that they are so redacted speaks to me. If that info did not have anything to do with GP, and be important to future legal proceedings, I don’t believe they would be redacted at all.

    Im wondering because, someone please correct me if Im wrong, no one has seen a picture or video of BL since the Moab incident. If he took money from an ATM (of which most have cameras), if there is video of him at the Benton, IL gas station stop, if there is video from the AT&T store, if there is surveillance video from the Fort DeSoto Campground, does any of it show markings on BL that could possibly be attributed to another physical altercation between he and GP after Moab. Newer scratches, bruising, whatever. Has any of those pics or videos yet been released? I dont recall seeing any,
