  1. I thought that the physical item that he provided to police was likely his passport, but everyone seems to think it was the van key.
    This family doesn't strike me as the 'leave the country' type, but maybe. IMO.

    I’ve only been able to skip around and read here as it moves so fast. But thank you for making that point, that G was spending much of the time doing on the vlog. It seems she was quite obsessed with it, and her statement that she is OCD. Not trying to victim blame, just that it very well may have been a significant source of contention between them. Perhaps they hadn’t realized how different their goals were for this excursion.

    And I agree on your other points as well.... they are both young and obviously very stressed, and unprepared to deal with the situation, their different expectations and their emotions.

    "Yosemite" appears to have been a mistake: a typo (autocorrect) or a deliberate attempt to mislead GP's mother as to where she was (to hide her absence).

    There appears to have been an agreement between GP and a friend to meet in Yellowstone (not Yosemite) for the friend's birthday on the 29th. The details appear not to have been worked out, and GP dropped out of sight.

    I dont quite understand the hotel period in Salt Lake City.... it wasn't camping and where did the money come from when they didnt have hotel money earlier... did their fight continue and parents intervened? JMO

    Police just gave update on Gabby Petito investigation.
    “Certainly there has been progress made over the last 24 hours. I don’t know that we are at the point that we have it solved."
    Note: First comment refers to people saying they're going to protest at Brian Laundrie’s house.

    Hello, I do understand where you’re coming from with them being young people blaming him when it’s innocent until proven guilty, what I don’t understand is why? even if they did have an argument, why not let her parents know first she got lost or that he might of or didn’t hurt her. As I read on a post on the last thread, if you even had some kind of love connection or even cared for your ex spouse, the humanly thing to do is try to look for them. In this case, BL freaked out and left to Florida and didn’t say anything about his spouse or ex spouse whereabouts. It just doesn’t make sense when GP even lived with his family for 2 years. How is the family is defending him after they maybe know what happened to her? IMO I feel like she’s gone at this point. I don’t want to be pessimistic but this is exactly what Lori Vallow did with her children. She stayed silent and lawyered up and never spoke up.

    So you think that the only reason he would lawyer up is if he "knew" she was dead?

    It occurs to me, since she is missing in a potentially life threatening situation, this may give the FBI all kinds of access to info from the poi and his family that otherwise, they might need to have more solid probable cause arguments to obtain.

    Eg, banking activity, logs of phone calls, even warrants to seize phones.

    Another point: whatever happened, it likely took some time for BL to decide what to do, especially if it involved disposing of a body.

    It's not so easy, when you're in a strange place, to know which are hidden areas and which are places people regularly go.

    Not spouse related, but Lori Vallow stayed quiet the whole time, even until they found her childrens bodies.

    Where in the police video do they say she has marks? I didn't see that. But I DID read in the police report that NOBODY reported that "the male struck the female."

    I would think he'd lawyer up either way. I do think he would have provided some information at this point if this was an innocent misunderstanding. MOO

    Exactly, LE needs to follow the money trail............were they making withdrawals from some bank account or was the money just "appearing". as they continued on their trip. IMO

    He came out of the previous police encounter smelling like roses, so to speak. Patted on the back, metaphorically, considered the victim....

    I’d think that it should have given him courage to face future police encounters.

    All this MOO

    If his family flew him out of the country then they might as well all leave the country.

    At that point the family would be perceived as hunted fugitives.

    From the 11th to today I think LE has gathered quite a lot of information - maybe not enough for an arrest but I think they have a good idea of what may have happened IMO. I wonder if next her parents will stop giving interviews? If they do, I think that's a very bad sign about what happened to GP.

    I'm kinda knocked over by the statement that "I don't know that we are at the point that we have it solved". Which implies to me that they are close. How strange coming from someone who always has to tailor words for the public.
